half way there – yay!
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.
week 26/ the 52 project
marlow: baby’s first birthday party. and…. she loved every minute of it!
thatcher: this one loves a bit of birthday party action too, but what’s not to love – cake, treats, dancing, toys, singing and friends. winning.
week 24/ the 52 project
thatcher: rod may have a bit of an unfair advantage in this wrestling match!
marlow: ‘you expect me to share my sandwich with a duck? you have got to be kidding’
week 22/ the 52 project
thatcher: what a sweet little boy mr t is – so so happy and such a caring and thoughtful soul.
marlow: she is really starting to get the hang of this new crawling thing and loving her new-found freedom.
week 21/the 52 project
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)
week 20/the 52 project.
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…
week 19/the 52 project
thatcher: when all else fails, take the boy to the zoo…
marlow: future hockey-player in the making (or so daddy hopes, anyway)
week 18/the 52 project
thatcher: ‘nonno is my best friend’.
marlow: just like her big brother and nonno, she loves to get outside in the dirt. such a lady.
week 8 / the 52 project
marlow: ‘is there something in my hair?!?’ the poor girl can’t get even one second away from that brother of hers.
thatcher: it wouldn’t be an australian summer without water and i think this child was born with gills.
week 7 / the 52 project
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…
