10th January 2016

Today, my darling Ralph, you insisted on waking me super early in the morning by whispering “wake up now mummy” continuously in my face.  I love that you are so persistent and don’t give up even if you do have to drag me out of bed by my ankles…..

We woke up to an unusual grey summers day here in Perth but it was a nice break to take a morning walk along the beach without melting at 7:30 in the morning, which turns out is also the same time and place that all of Perth’s lycra wearing fitness addicts do their daily exercise. I happened to be the one counting all the ships/ surfers/ dogs at the top of my voice….

Hair raising Saturday!

The Saturday just past we eventually made it to Winterland which is currently taking place in Fremantle (I wanted to go the weekend before but the rain put a stop to that plan).  I personally never need an excuse to venture to good old Freo, quite simply I adore the place even on a busy sunny Saturday afternoon; The streets are bustling, the cafes are spilling out onto the pavement and  the market is jam packed with locals and tourists – Big D on the other hand, well this is his nightmare.  But still, off we went with the most prettiest take out coffee cups in our paws and on the very loose promise that i was sure that i had read somewhere there was going to be a snow machine…..

Ralph’s most favourite toys (at two years old)

This week started with some super soggy stay indoors kind of weather which always makes me anxious. What are we going to do ALL day? Ralph and I are both the stay outdoors all day long kind of people and the rain really buggers that up- there is only so many wet puddles you can jump in before your socks get soggy and you want to go home (that’s usually me!)
Anyways i’m getting slightly off track….being nearly 2 and a half its fair to say Ralph definatly knows what he likes when it comes to toys and it turns out that some of his favourites are some of the toys he’s had for ages!!

Happy second birthday Ralph

We've had such a beautiful whirlwind of birthday celebrations over the weekend, that it was an awesome treat to get to lay down on the grass under the sun during our animal spotting at the zoo today whilst Ralph had a wee nap and Big D and I let out a huge sigh of relief that we made it to year two pretty much unscathed! Well kind of!

^^^such a rare moment I had to get a snap of us relaxing together!^^^

Two years man, where have you gone and what have you done with our little baby?! Ralph is so, so long I swear he will be taller than me before he reaches 10! But no matter how tall you will end up I always want you to know that I love you more and more each day. Infact I never knew I could love someone as much as you and am so incredibly greatful what a special gift you are to us both, even including those trying and difficult days where the tears are mainly mine! (mamas reading this are probably nodding in unison here!)

^^^i was way more impressed with the sparkler candle than the birthday boy^^^

Each and every day you teach me to be more patient, more caring, more selfless than I ever thought could be humanly possible. Happy birthday to our darling dude. We hope you had the best birthday!

We love you!

 

 

 

 

 

 

March One of thirty one

February, February where have you gone? Sorry I've been VERY absent! I don't know what's got into me but I'm definately thinking what you're thinking: “Geez how hard can it be to post a little update every once in a while?”

What we are reading

Ralph has Big D and I laughing so much through the day (except at 4am. No one laughs at 4am….) but even more so when we sit down to read and he pulls the same three books out from his ever growing collection, which I can't help myself adding too, I love books and I love buying them, I love sharing my love for them with our little dude and I love it when he comes running over armed with his collection of reads, jumps up and wriggles himself into my lap so he is just so….
