As we packed up our furniture tonight (for our shipment that leaves tomorrow), I started to realise that the most mundane things hold the best memories. This cheapy chair in Jack's room was the chair that I used to lie in whilst heavily pregnant and I would dream of the little baby that I'd soon snuggle in it. I then spent my days and nights feeding and cuddling Jack in it. I then covered it in out "granny blankets"... The one that was made for me when I was born and the one my granny made for Jack. She even made it in the Australian colours for her "Aussie boy" and he LOVES it! I've shed a few tears tonight whilst boxing up the past 6 years of our lives but I honestly can't wait to see what the future has in store for us... 😍

We have some pretty big news... In 3 short weeks we will be moving to Doha in the Middle East! We have been toying with the idea of moving since I fell pregnant as we felt the need to be closer to our family! It's going to be a huge adjustment and we are going to miss Australia so much... We have loved every second of the 6 years we have spent in Perth, but it's time for a new adventure! I know that as long as I have these two by my side everything will be amazing 😊! Apologies for the lack of posts on my blog etc... Life has taken over a bit at the moment but I'll be back soon πŸ˜‰.

I met you in Spring, we got to know each other through Summer, we have laughed through Autumn and I can't wait to snuggle you through winter πŸ˜ŠπŸŒ‚β˜€οΈπŸβ›„οΈ #loveforallseasonswithYOU

Trying to get a decent family photo beside the sold sign like πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆπŸ™„... #familyphotofail

This silver jacket is just about as wild as that boy in my arms and I love them both very much πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸΌπŸ™ˆ @decjubaofficial #10yearoldkarenawouldlovethisoutfitchoice

The face of a boy who kept his parents awake all night and then demanded a nap at 7am πŸ™„! Dad is just putting him to bed now, so let's see what tonight has in store! #sleepisforlosers πŸ’πŸΌ

I sing to Jack in this position every night! He snuggles his face in to mine and giggles while I sing badly to him! πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸΌ It's one of my favourite times of the day! 😍 #amitheonlyonewhothinksimagoodsinger

He's the only one who knows what my heart sounds like from the inside. ❀️ There has been a lot going on at home at the moment... Will be able to share more soon! Can't possibly put any hashtags on this picture... It was taken during my maternity shoot with my bestie @rpdreamhunter and at this moment Jack was kicking so much and the emotions were genuine! 😍

I'm not sure that there is anything better in the world than being all snuggled up on a rainy day! 😍 #thebestfeelingever

If I swaddle you does that mean that you're still my tiny baby? πŸ‘ΆπŸΌπŸ˜­ Seiously enjoying this cooler weather though, perfect for snuggling πŸ˜Šβ˜•οΈ! Oh and that foot 😍... Please tell me I'm the only one who can't get a sock or shoe on their baby for more than 5 minutes?! πŸ˜‚ blanket & tee: @the_archive_fremantle jeans and cardigan: @decjubaofficial

Today I turned 27! It creeped me out as that's the age Ricky was when we met 6 years ago and I remember thinking he was SO old πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆ!! I can't believe how quickly the years are flying in... When people ask how old I am I almost answer with "21" because that's how old I think I am πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸΌ! My 26th year on the earth was my best yet and I can't wait to see what 27 has in store for us... I've got the feeling it's going to be a big one πŸ˜‰ xxx wearing @fillyboo 😍

Although I've been a proud cat mum for 5 and a half years, Ricky has refused to let me celebrate Mother's Day... No clue why πŸ˜‚πŸ€”! This year however is my first as an actual baby mumma! πŸ’ƒπŸ½πŸ˜Š I've felt so spoilt! Ricky took the monitor all night and attended to all feeds giving me the best gift of all, my first night of uninterrupted sleep in 7 months (hallelujah)! I was woken with a mimosa, coffee AND breakfast and we spent a really relaxed day as a family and I got these amazing pyjamas (if you've read my blog you'll know I'm a huge Dr Seuss fan)... We had elaborate lunch plans but I had Ricky cancel them as I was having too much fun hanging out, so we went to the local instead to watch the footie πŸ˜‚πŸ™ˆπŸ™ŒπŸΌ. OH and when I said the night of sleep was the best gift πŸ‘†πŸΌ I was telling a fib, this little guy is 😍. happy Mother's Day to all the gorgeous mamas out there, what have you all been up to?! 😊🌹
