Kisses at Bedtime

Gracie just loves going to bed at the moment - the last couple of nights I've heard lots of laughter as Laura has put her to bed - tonight I got a little of it on film. Enjoy!

A Busy Week!

This week has been pretty busy. On Wednesday it was my birthday so Paul took the day off and we met friends for coffee in the morning followed by an amazing chocolate cake in the afternoon made by Paul.

On Thursday Gracie had a photo shoot! We were stopped in the mall a week or so ago by a photographer called Rachael Hale and asked if she could meet up with me about using Gracie as a model. She came by on Monday and it turns out she's published a book already and is well known in New Zealand and her work is sold around the world. In the past she's worked with animals but is now picturing babies. So anyway, we went to her studio on Thursday and she took the most gorgeous photo's of Gracie-i can't wait to get the copies!

Yesterday Paul went away for the weekend with church so i spent the afternoon with Rosie (his sister) and we took the kids swimming. It was Gracie's first time in a pool and she loved it. I then stayed over at their house which was lots of fun and we watched Will Smith's newish movie, In pursuit of happiness. It was a great film-a real eye opener-I recomend it.

Ok. so thats my busy week! I'm now looking forwards to some of the girls coming over tonight-should be lots of fun!

What have we been up to this week?

Well this week has been another busy week. I (Paul) have been working pretty hard this week - there is plenty on at the moment to keep me busy - tonight is SOAK at church, so I'll be heading back there pretty soon to practice with the band, and get a few things set up.

Gracie has been doing really well - in the last week she has mastered sitting up, rolling over from her tummy, and has started having solid foods. She is so much fun, and we're loving every minute of her. Here are a couple of pics of her this week.

Yesterday we went to our good friends Dizz & James for Dizz's 30th - they prepared an INCREDIBLE mi winter christmas, including tree, carols, mulled wine, a huge christmas dinner, and a visit from Father Christmas - as you can see, Matilda cashed in!
