ch ch ch changes

I haven't blogged in so long! Again! Someone hand me some motivation! :/

So much has happened, I have no idea where to even start.

I was made redundant, again... I'm actually not sure if I mentioned it when it happened so here's the back-story: While I was off on leave after Elijah was born, I was advised that the place I worked was closing down and 150+ people were being laid off... I was very fortunate to be offered a job working for some friends soon after and I've been working there since September. Now they have decided to close the business and I've technically unemployed since the end of February :( I say 'technically' because thankfully, I managed to line up a new job before I finished up, but it doesn't start until April. I'm taking the opportunity to spend my days playing with my son, take naps, wean off the awful anti-anxiety meds I've been on and get some sewing projects done (I'm making a quiet book for Elijah and will blog about it if anyone would like me to?)
Elijah is so so big and so strong now! He's 7 1/2 months old and such a determined little boy. He began crawling properly just a couple of days after he reached 7 months, he can really move! He's also pulling himself up on everything that he can; the couch, us, his cot, the front door, the walls! He's also 'furniture walking' which blew me away at first! I didn't expect that just yet.

He's loving swimming lesions, and we have been to a few play groups. He's still a great eater and frequently sleeps through the night. He's got two teeth and I think his dimples are getting more prominent. His favourite shows are Charley Bear and Glee hehe. He's playing more 'deliberately' now, showing preference for particular toys, and kissing his dolly :) He gives us kisses now too, which absolutely melts me! (Sometimes the kisses are followed by raspberries, or teeth but I'm not complaining!)

Stay tuned for tomorrow's Wordless Wednesday - it's a bit cute ;)

Don't forget we're on twitter, @2aussiemammas - I'm a much more frequent tweeter than blogger ;)






  1. What a doll!

    I hate job stuff. (I'm currently in job-search mode.) Glad to hear you've got something lined up.

    I'd love to hear more about this quiet book idea. Sounds great!

    1. Thanks :) We think he's a bit gorgous :)

      Hopefully can get to making this quiet book soon!

  2. It's been so lovely having time with him, I've absolutely loved it.

    Will be blogging about quiet book when I get some quiet time to actually make it! hehe
