Planning and Milestones

This little cherub turned 4 months young today. He's a fussy little thing but I love kissing him to bits.
Life has been really hectic since his arrival. There are days when I truly feel I cannot do a single thing and other days when a bit is done and the world is alright.

This 5 year old requested earrings so I obliged. I was more nervous than she was.
I forked out the cash to have them both done at the same time. One skinny guy and one medium sized guy were at both sides of her. Both looked a bit scary as they had tattoo's down their arms and a collection of piercings in their ears. I suppose it is the sign of a true professional in his field, yes? I always tell myself not to
judge others. I could have done them at the GP which would bring the cost down by half but I wanted it both ears done together as I was scared she'd freak out.

Just as they were getting ready she looked a bit worried and told me she didn't want them anymore. Too late for that. I told her it would be quick and she'd be ok so SNAP! Both ears were done and she didn't even flinch. She didn't cry and I was so very proud of her. When we got home I was a little saddened to announce that my little girl now has earrings. A sign of her growing up, well to me anyway.


Hey, I made bread last week! A friend came over for home-made pizza so I prepared two batches of dough. We only used one batch for the kids so I decided to let this one rise a second time and glazed it with milk and egg. Into the oven and 45mins later we had bread. It was a bit chewy but lovely. I have bought a pizza stone to try some more bread things from the 5mins a Day Artisan Bread book.

Thankyou for your advice and suggestions re party planning. We still have Elijah's Christening next Saturday. I've been scouring the internets for ideas and trying to keep the costs low. How great is this site? I decided to go with Martha Stewart Pom Poms and a bunting. I wanted lanterns but they can get a bit expensive.
I did find this cute lantern light decoration from Typo. It comes with fairy lights but I haven't decided where to hang it yet. I have selected a bunch of fabrics for a bunting and will have to get around to that this week.
My local two dollar asian store is awesome! I found his bombonieres there and will go back for this gorgeous flower cake stand.

This is a bargain dress I picked up from Millers (not just for older ladies).
They are having a 50% off sale right now so the mid length dress was only $20.
Sorry for the bad photo. I'll take another one of me wearing it one day.

For now we have a party to get ready for.
Stay tuned.
