I finally finished our 'headboard' photo collage. Assembling this was like a gigantic puzzle game. Lots of trial and error. The worst part of the process was one night a photo fell off the wall and hit Nathan in the face. He wasn't too happy about that one. Oops. Sorry hunny. I spent the next day reinforcing.

Beckett's ever the crafter--we made a pirate ship equipped with 3 sails and portholes. Just in case it ever found itself in a battle.

And one last one of my sweet babe, who's not really a babe anymore.

Ollie Baby

Sweet Ollie bear is 18 months and since we totally forgot his first birthday (moving countries and being sick will do that) we celebrated his half birthday with some friends last weekend. 

At 18months he:
-runs around like a crazy man
-tries desperately to keep up with his brothers
-loves swimming--he's mastered his water wings
-runs into the elevator and stands with his back in the corner, hands behind his back
- kicks his feet happily when I put him down for a nap
-loves eating grapes and oatmeal
-can say 'dada' and 'hi'
-nods yes whenever he's asked anything
-only snuggles when he's tired
-gets into everything
-pushes his food off his tray when he's finished eating
-stares at people blankly when they try and interact with him
-always has a smile for daddy
-loves the binkie
-usually sleeps 13+ hours a night

We love Olliepop!

I rarely just sit and browse the web, but today I found some fun stuff to ogle over. Thought I'd share.

Thailand 2013

An update! After half a year, I still remember how to log onto this thing. We took a trip to Thailand earlier this month and had a blast. Longboats, elephants, curry, pina coladas, sunburns, monkeys, thai pancakes and massages were some of the highlights. I want to go again!

Summer 2012

I have good news and bad news. Shall I start with the bad? Our friend, Mr. Mac has decided he's too full of information and thus we can't download any of our pictures from our summer adventures. We are waiting until we get to Singapore (oh yeah, did I mention we were moving there in a week?) to buy a new computer, so you'll just have to wait until then to see photos of Ollie crawling, Beckett on his first trail ride and William roasting a mean hot dog. 
The good news? While we were in Canada a great friend and talented photographer worked us into her busy schedule and got some great photos of these boys. 



So glad we got this shot, he has 4 teeth now!

My blessed mother who helped change, entertain, feed, tickle, hold, and everything else.

Look at that chub oozing out!

 I love these boys! 

Now for the update on our life. We are moving to Singapore next week and have contracted with the company to be there for a year. I'm feeling excited, nervous, sad and everything in between. We are truly going to miss Sydney and all of our wonderful friends here. At this point I am feeling really settled here, right in time to move :) 
Beckett just finished his third term at Rose Bay Public and had to say goodbye to all of his friends. He's pretty confident that (in his words) "I'll see them again...eventually." Oh, to have the cares of a 5 year old.
William has grown up so much, even in the past month. He is constantly making me laugh with the funny things he says. He is also totally fine with moving to "Singapoie".
Ollie bear is a sweet little love. He is crawling and into everything, he loves to explore. He is so fat and even though he's been crawling for over a month, the pounds have yet to come off :) He's sleeping well and now that his top and bottom two teeth have come through he's a much happier babe. He claps, gives big slobbery kisses and his loves his brothers.

I know I say this in every post, but with our move, and now having Americans, Canadians AND Australians checking up on us, I'm really going to try and post more. We'll see if it happens! 
Until next time. xx
