Thatcher: and on the topic of birthdays, this is my boy’s last week as a two-year-old. he is growing up so so fast. the lucky devil had his birthday party this weekend, complete with performance from every toddler’s favourite musicians – rock’n’toddle, and a chuggington cake lovingly hand made by aunty ra-ra. toddler heaven!

Marlow: this week was a big week in our house – marlow turned to the big O-N-E! happy birthday baby girl xx. her christening and birthday party are next week, but we slipped in a little family dinner, complete with mini birthday cake for the birthday girl which she absolutely devoured (…and loved every minute of it).  her birthday cake was a sweet and salty layer cake for those of you playing at home.

thatcher: yay for the cupcakes. my boy and i had a free hour this week and what better way to spend than going on a mummy-thatchy date to the cupcake shop. we love sherbet bakehouse around here, and just as luck would have it, thatch got there just in time to score the last vanilla raspberry cupcake, his favourite!

marlow: this girl is just in awe of her big brother – she is his little shadow (albeit a shadow that has only just started crawling)

marlow: clearly the girl does not suffer fools (or brothers) well. it’s a little too early for this amount of attitude, surely?!?

thatcher: in the latest instalment of the arnold family’s parklife adventures, we have discovered our new favourite park – john oldham reserve in the middle of the city. this park, complete with giant slide is literally hidden in  little oasis between the the freeway and equally busy city streets. who would’ve thunk it. i really love perth sometimes…

thatcher: ‘i can see the giants.’ like all of perth, we went into the city on saturday afternoon to watch the giants as part of the perth international arts festival. thatch was in absolute awe of them.

marlow: those big blue eyes. ps. look how good i am at sitting up all by myself; i’ve been slowly perfecting this skill over the last few weeks. crawling, watch out, i’m coming for you…
