Bath time fun

Tonight Aidan had his first bath in the bath.
I dont even think he realised.
All he cared about was putting the washer and toys in his mouth.


Scrap that!

I have started scrap booking. Not many people know that I do this actually. Mind you it has been a while and now is a good time to start some Aidan albums.

It takes me a while to get into the groove so I am never really happy with my first few pages.

Once I get going I will post some more.

My new loves

I love a good label.
Animals & Aidan, beware!

One of my most hated chores comes in the form of a mop and bucket.
No more!
Hello steam mop!!


Spot the cat!

He loves his jolly jumper and I am making sure I get enough use out of it before he ahem..cracks 10kgs.

Some non Aidan posts should come soon....


Yummy Yummy Kiwi Fruit


Oh my...

Its day time.
He's asleep.
In his cot.


Its in the bag...

Our blackboard wall comes into good use again....
So much stuff to pack for such a little (well not really) person

I love banana bread!

One of the easiest things to bake is banana bread.
Usually if I bake something I need to do a special shopping trip...but with this easy recipe I always have the ingredients on hand.
This one came out a little burnt though...doh!

  • 1 cup (150g) plain flour (I use wholemeal)
  • 1/2 cup (75g) self-raising flour (Again, wholemeal)
  • 1 cup brown sugar (you can halve this, I dont. We dont eat too much rubbish so I go with the whole cup)
  • 125g butter, melted, cooled
  • 2 eggs, whisked
  • 3 ripe bananas, mashed
  • Walnuts
  • Cinnamon
  • Nutmeg
Mix it all up and bake....

The best way to eat this is to:
Grab a coffee (Mocha with marshmallows)
Go to a park and
Put a few slices on the BBQ to crisp it up!

I have a new banana bread recipe to try also, so stay tuned.


He who doesn't sleep....

has his moments....

This was taken a few weeks ago when we worked out he was thrilled to sit in the trolley.
This particular day it was all too much.



All I can say is - ICTAI!! :

Aidan not understanding what the big deal is and wanting to head out:

Ready to hit the pavement:

It was such a beautiful day today. After we disposed of the specimen we went to The Strand and had a coffee.



Today we tried pasta sprinkled with parmesan cheese.

Watching and waiting patiently:

Dig in!:

A new taste and texture:

Not so bad after all:

It was 28 degrees here today hence the singlet.
Loving his rolly polly arms!

P.S Day 3 of day care, sleep = 15 mins <--Thats the Aidan we know!


Day 2

Day 2 of Day Care -
He had 2 sleeps but neither were as long as yesterday.
So when we went for our afternoon walk he crashed.
He will soon realise that when we go to day care he won't be seeing me for a while.

We're back...!!

We're back!!

Aidan is growing too quick
This photo was taken before his first day of day care.
The drop off was quick which meant there were no tears from either of us.
He did well and had 2 sleeps. 2 sleeps at home - ha non existant!
