Melbourne has been putting on some lovely weather this week. Today I wore just a light jacket and felt too warm. I am going to be optimistic and call winter done, Ha!
I celebrated the warm weather by rolling up Harvey’s sleeves. Check out that hair! Harvey wears hats so often sometimes it’s rapid growth surprises me.
He blows kisses now at the sight of keys or the front door being touched. Bless.
My lovely husband is back at work, that week off went far too quick. We fit in lots of activities but I was having too much fun to capture them. We had an amazing day in the Yarra with a quick stop in to Healesville Sanctuary. Last time we visited we decided it was probably more for older kids, but I am so glad we gave it another go. I find you get good zoo days and bad zoo days. Bad days are when all the animals are hidden away and sleeping. Good days they put on a show, and we absolutely got a good day this time. The birds there are amazing! Doesn’t hurt that Healesville is wine country and we always sneak in a visit to one of our favourites too.
This is our one shot from the zoo. Harvey points at his puppy hat and wants to wear it most days lately. He loves it. I am not complaining, I think it’s adorable.
We spent the rest of the week catching up with some friends, taking walks with our fur babies, and just kicking back. Holidays at home are so lovely.
Lucky it’s only 4 short weeks away to another 2 weeks off. It’s a hard life. We are off to L’s sisters wedding and Harvey’s outfit is currently being shipped along with a matching one for his 2 year old cousin. So excited, Harvey clearly is too..
He is still obsessed with dancing. We broke another “things we never said we would do before we had kids ” rule and got a wiggles dvd and have been dancing along to it all 3 of us. Such fun. Harvey practices his moves in front of the camera at every opportunity.
Harvey is wearing:
Zara Baby White Shirt -$25.95
Espirit Vest – Gift
Target Skinny Jeans – $5 on sale yonks ago
Charlie & Me Shoes – $10
One last shot… just to prove that at least someone thinks I am funny.
Put your hands in the air, because daddy is on holidays!
For the first time ever, we are spending some time off at home. We have lived in Melbourne for over 2 years but have never had leave and not gone away.
Harvey seems pretty happy about it.
I adore these Charlie & Me shoes.
And of course this Fox tee from Best & Less (so much that Harvey has 2) The jeans are from Target – I picked up a tonne of coloured skinny jeans for $5 each when I was pregnant and they are fantastic.
We spent our first official “holiday at home” day at Ripponlea House. Such a beautiful estate and the house itself is amazing.
Harvey got in some walking practice around the grounds.
He was pretty excited about the house, he just couldn’t contain himself.
For the rest of the week we have no set in concrete plans, just doing what we feel like each day. I think we will pop out to the Yarra Valley, have a yummy lunch and pop into Healesville sanctuary. We will no doubt have a day in the city too. Any recommendations of things to do are welcome!
As soon as I finish this post I am off to find some wood to knock on, because I think we are just about all fully recovered from our sickness and now I have put it in writing. Awful bug hit us all and kept coming back in waves and I will be mighty glad to see the end of it. I am the only one now still a little ‘off’ but I think another day or two I will be back to full health.
I celebrated then end of our woes by putting Harvey in this outfit today.
I love a bit of nautical. Harvey had a few little sailor suits as a baby but has sadly outgrown them now.
This outfit is all Target, I found the tights in the girls section.
Now we are feeling better we have been spending a little more time outside. We even went to the art gallery which was fantastic. Harvey is officially obsessed with planes. He watches the sky waiting for one to fly over then points at it in awe, like this.
Then waits again for another.
The Target sweater and leggings are teamed with his Deary Me moccs, and Baby Gap hat.
Here is to better health and more days outside!
Stay far away. We are in quarantine. We came home from our quick trip away with the flu. No doubt 20ish hours of being on the road over 4 days did no wonders for our immunity.
Yesterday things were looking up, and I thought it was all over. Unfortunately today we are again all feeling sorry for ourselves. I have been downing tea like it’s water.
I first noticed the other day when we snapped these couple of shots. Our little guy just wasn’t himself, his eyes seemed dull and he wasn’t beaming like he normally is. Somehow this child isn’t sick of having his photo taken and normally he loves it. Today though he just wasn’t in the mood, so we called our little shoot off and headed inside for rest. It was all down hill from there.
We love this vest Harvey was given for his birthday. He looked very dapper in it with his white Zara shirt and jeans.
Harvey has proven me wrong once again and in sickness has become a total mummy’s boy. I am not complaining one bit, his cuddles are divine and even make me feel a little better. It’s so awful when babies are sick. I wish I could take it away, or even just explain to him that he will get better. He is just so sad.
Hopefully a few more rest days and we will all be back in business.
