Melt

Day 93

Well Cohen has certainly got the "you can't stay mad at me for long mummy" face down pat....He pulls this one out far too much and i can't help but melt. Then follows it us with some more cheek. What am i going to do, this kid is going to walk all over me...hhhhmmmm guess that's what daddy's are for...i'll have to start my "wait till your dad gets home call". But until then i'll just enjoy those yummy chocolate eyes. Love Love Love!


Its amazing how much fun a toddler can have with a cardboard box...

Making waves

Day 91 

Water is so much fun when you're one! Splashing and making as much noise as possible key to optimising fun. Such a delight watching the excitement and surprise and his hands smash down and the water shoots of in different directions....so much discovery.

Baby in a bucket

Day 89 


Think this is going to be our 'happy' place over summer! Cooling down will be key to survival of the hot Queensland summer. This will be Cohen's first full summer after we were spoilt with a trip to Canada and NYC last Dec/Jan. Oh why oh why can't it snow in Brisbane for Christmas!!!!


"Don't even think about taking me out mum!"

So excited to share these with you...'the cutest little man you ever did see!' It was close to impossible to take a bad shot with those big brown eyes staring at you. Thank you Sally and Victor for letting me capture your little delight!

A is for Audrey aaawwwww...

Day 88

11 days old and just too cute for words. Today i got the chance to shoot what became of the bump! Miss Audrey was welcomed into the world on the 16/11/11. Congratulations to mum and dad and big sister Hatti...can't wait to watch you grow!

jx

Mad as a Hatti...

Day 87

I finally got Miss Hatti to stop for 5 seconds and look at the camera! Usually its a matter of chasing her around with no success, this time i got a good one. So much love as she lays on her mums tummy only 2 days away from being a big sister.

Bump

Day 86 
I was so excited when a friend of mine asked me to take some photos of her bump just before she popped...only 2 days before she gave birth, how lucky am I. Such a beautiful family, now i can wait till the new arrival so i can take some more pics, hehe.

Too cool

Day 85

Our bambino is well and truly a little man these days. Such attitude and cheek, with a little bit of 'way too cool' thrown in there as well...and he's only 18mths. Guess this is going to make for an exiting ride!

Sneak peek...


Day 84

Just a little sneak peek at todays shoot. I had the pleasure of capturing the most adorable little man...too much cuteness!!!

jx

You can't see me...

Day 83

I knew the day would come when he has had enough of me sticking a camera in his face i just hoped it wasn't this early! Not only has he learnt not to look at the camera, move at the speed of light he now hide's his face...this is going to be a bit of a problem haha.

Shorncliffe

Day 82 

Apologies for this photo heavy post, but we just had too much fun at the beach today. We ventured north to Shorncliffe for the afternoon to see what was on offer. Apart from the brown sand, it was a really cute place, great for kids to run around and have fun....we will definitely be heading there again.

Getting down and dirty

Sampling the water...found out quickly its far too salty!

Mer-man daddy, MER-MAN!

Washing off ready to go home.

Hope everyone enjoyed the sunshine as much as we did.

Tough Guy


Day 81 

Today Cohen went play with one of his little friends while i did some running around. Full of confidence he climbed up the slide and got ready to slide down, only to realise that it was actually a little higher than he thought and chickened out. Haha first time for everything i guess....wont be for long though.

Spring glow

Day 80

While Cohen checked out whats going on through the front french doors i was lucky enough to capture this little gem. He loves to watch the people walking past waving and saying hi as they go by. The best is when we have our rubbish collection day and he runs over to the doors and watches with excitement as the big truck picks up the bins with a huge clunk. Simple pleasures!

Afternoon sun...


Just had to add this one...love is so simple!

Friends

Day 79 

I just love this photo...Cohen learning how to 'play gentle' with younger babies...one day Van will be big enough (if not bigger) and give Cohen a run for his money!

Painting

Day 78 

Today we had a lovely morning painting with Cohen's friends. It was so much fun to see them all explore and discover. Some enjoyed it more than others, while Cohen first thought the idea of getting to smudge stuff all over everything was fun he soon lost interest when he discovered the paint tasted terrible and he couldn't eat it. Eve on the other hand LOVED the chance to let her creative talents shine, as she sat quietly and brushed away to carefully with a single finger while all the others were covered head to toe in blues, greens, reds and yellow. SO much toddler fun!

Hats on!

Day 77 

Our hat wearing continues, i found this super cute kids hat at cotton on kids, Cohen just loves it...fits him a little better than mine haha. Outside play always needs 'hats on' and why not do it in style!

Here comes the sun

Day 76

We are loving this warmer weather....being able to run around in nothing more than a nappy playing with buckets of water and eating icy poles. Best time of year...lets hope things don't heat up too much too quickly, not ready for sticky sweaty summers just yet.

Water...

Day 75 

Oh dear...when one cheeky toddler is left alone with a drink bottle that doesn't have a 'no slip' lid, well you can see the outcome. At least he took it outside on the deck, quite smart actually; wont get in trouble and wont be found for just that little bit longer while i hunt around the house searching for a suddenly quite child!



jx

New tricks


Day 74

Learning new tricks from dad is always so much fun to watch...Cohen watches Chad so closely to take every little detail in...like father like son!

Brain freeze

Day 73

With all this sunshine it calls for ice blocks, and there's nothing better than frozen fruit to munch on. Cohen got stuck into some frozen raspberries to cool off after a long hot day. This was most certainly an outside activity as the red was spread from eyebrow to elbow.

Shorty getting low low low low...

Our first brain freeze!

Summertime here we come....

Happy Days


Day 72

Wow what an amazing day...and didn't we take full advantage of all the sunshine. We set up the shell on the deck and Cohen had the best time climbing in and out running around like a cheeky monkey. Happy happy happy days! Of course the straw hat had to come out with us...never not by his side these days!

Melt

Day 71

Do you think he knows thats this is the face that I can't say no too??? Hhhmmm, im dreading the day when he figures it out haha.

We had such a lovely day, Cohen is back to his normal crazy self after what seams like a never ending marathon of coughs and colds there is light at the end of the flu tunnel. So the ninja is back with great force keeping me busy as usual, but after what we have just gone through, thats just the way i like it!

jx

Table and Chairs

Day 70

We finally got a table and chairs set for Cohen today so that he can learn to sit and eat his food like a 'big boy'. He was so excited and put all his toys on the table, sat on the chair and happily played. Now all i have to teach him is that we SIT on chairs and do not use them to climb to higher grounds! Haha...oh and you may notice we still have our hat on, he seriously loves it - i love how he wears it backwards so he can see!

Just chilling

Day 69

Seams that we have skipped spring and gone straight to summer...Cohen does not deal with the heat at all (more of a snow bunny haha), So to try and ease his discomfort we set up a cubby on the deck for the day and just chilled out. so much fun listening to his giggles and he peaks in and out of the cubby door.
