I can't believe it. She's 1.
It's been a whirlwind of a week/month.
I had no time to make a cake, esp. one that would be big enough to feed a crowd.
So we opted for store bought and we gathered in celebration of this wonderful milestone.
She can't say mummy just yet but she has only just mastered crawling and can pull herself up on the couch. She certainly knows her name and cries as soon as she sees me.
Having only two teeth doesn't stop her from eating everything in sight.
I'm enjoying a Sunday at home after church. We normally have it at the in-laws but they are
going on a bus trip to Mary McKillop's church. Very exciting stuff.
If you haven't heard, Australia will get their very first saint today at the Vatican.
It's really special. The thought of even dragging my kids out to the city makes me cringe and shrivel into a ball. We will watch the event from the comfort of home.
I've been banned from buying fabric, notions or anything on-line.
You see we've just purchased a new car. It's not new new but it's new for us and BIG
and lovely. More pics of this to come when I drive the baby home next week.
But in a week where I was a bit depressed and our dollar was bouncing high I bought an Oliver + S Jumprope dress pattern. Apparently, it's going out of print so I had to have it in the large size for my girls. My spirits will be lifted when it arrives just like the car but still, you know, material things don't equate to true happiness.
It's like having a good bar of chocolate. Which, yeah is a good idea right now.
I'll be doing some sewing today. I promise.
