Siblings | April 2017

How am I writing about my Siblings in April already? April has been an insanely busy month, thus far, for us with day trips and the Easter school holidays. I mean, don’t get me wrong, all of it has been amazing but it’s exhausting at the same time too.

April kicked off with a Kids Superhero Day cruise with Stenaline. For us, this was a pretty awesome way to kick start a whole new month. We had such a great day and it tired the kids out too which was a bonus for us Parents. It’s always a win to the grown-ups when we’ve partied the kids to sleepy land. 

Are anyone else’s children going through a mega-fueled growth spurt? It must be something to do with Spring or whatever because my girls are growing like weeds. Actual speed-growing weeds! They just seem to be all leg at the moment too and keeping them clothed is becoming a challenge. I took my eldest out for clothes not even a month ago and she has grown out of those clothes already. In a month! Waaah!


Ellie loves … drawing, she is forever doodling little comic books and writing screenplays for her and her cousin to perform. She is also enjoying her music, learning how to play the guitar and playing a little Overwatch when she has the time. Her Year 8 ‘end of year’ exams are coming up in around 6 weeks, so she is feeling a bit anxious about those. 

Jacob loves … football! Nothing has or every will change about that. His little weekly football club has been off for the Easter break so he’s been feeling a little lost. He is loving the lighter evenings, so he can stay outside and play with his friends more. He’s still frustratingly fussy with his food but he won’t starve!

Annabelle loves … everything and anything! She has been especially enjoying colouring in lately and her fine development skills are really improving. Just watching her try really hard to stay in the lines is adorable. I picked up some timers for her a few weeks ago and they have really helped to lengthen her attention span in preparation for Primary school in September.

    Love the photographs of them all together. Lovely to cherish as keepsakes of them together making memories. The Superhero Cruise day sounds like lots of fun.

    I thought my eldest jammies shrinked in the wash but it would be odd because they all did so I think he had a growth spurt too. I suppose he is only 4 months away from turning five.

    What lovely children you have! They are so lucky to have each other now and while they grow up.

    Aw, what precious photos! Looks like they’re having a great time! I remember making up little plays and skits for my friends to perform in (I was the director, of course – lol) and we made our parents sit through them. 😉 Sounds like you have a budding writer in the making – enjoy! 🙂

    Cute family! I forget the days where I had to buy clothes because I out grew them, not because I just wanted more, haha!

    Oh they look like they have so much fun together. With you on the growing. All three of mine are like weeds at the moment!
