It’s so easy to get caught up in what everyone else is doing, what they are wearing, what they are buying and what their Insta squares look like. Why try to be someone else when you can be you!
Small progress 🤙 those storage shelves on the right double as steps up to the new loft and they are a gamechanger! Plans for the weekend include lining the bedroom walls and building our bed base if all goes to plan (which is never a guarantee round here 😂) so thats all kinds of exciting - its getting way too cold to be sleeping on the floor 🌨️
Sitting in the carboot surround by mess, ironically none of it is hers 😂 swapping the cars over is like moving house 🙈 I do love how the teal makes her eyes pop blue though 😍 www.indiealice.com 💫 #indiealice
Love a good sunrise 🌅. I took this on Sunday morning, the morning I told hubby that he was in charge of the kids because I had stayed up watching The Wedding and I wanted a sleep in but the girls had other plans. One of them woke at 5:30am 😬, so we were all up by 6:30am! On a positive note, at least I got to see this beautiful sunrise 😂 #sunrise
Reminiscing on the amazing pics @wearethewatsons
captured when I was pregnant with Harry. Isn't it weird how quickly you forget what it's like to be pregnant? Also how crazy is a woman's body!! What we are capable of is freakin incredible! 💁🏻I have so much respect and more love than ever for my body now after what it's given me 🤰
Having a blast but missing our babies! How gorgeous is this little face! But we know they’ve been having a blast with Granny & Granded & we’re getting loads of updates! 💕

Bedtime stories for everyone in this family, even the cat 🐱 📸 @katiefromings
So cheeky. Love this little sass so much. She makes our days long but our hearts so happy. I love catching Bax whisper to her “I love you darling” 😍 #literalhearteyes
I wish I could say this was Edie’s first taste of sugar on her birthday but who would I be kidding 😂 #secondchild #foodstealer

Omg could Amelie be any cuter
Happy Birthday baby girl, all your ig mumas love watching grow
Happy Birthday Beautiful Bubba
Amelie is one of my absolute fav little chubby bubbys to oggle on ig... and how goegeous does she look in her custom crown, and her clever Mumma was inspired by Poppys 1st Birthday with her own hot air balloon!! Sooo cuuute!
Yay! Another delivery of postcards has arrived from the girls Great Aunt @barbiedevine
. The girls love receiving mail and are fascinated to see where these postcards have come from. This time my Aunty has been to Tasmania, Australia & Lombok, Indonesia in the last couple of months. Where is she heading next?? #postcards #family #travels #snailmail

Rolling into Monday 💕 Love this photo, and needed the smile after my two have been super challenging these past couple of days 🙄 Tantrums, night terrors and ear infections and throw in my car getting covered in overspray courtesy of the painter nextdoor. 🤦♀️ So thanks @theconners4real
for this brilliant 📷 Love the sass of this one 💖 www.indiealice.com 💫 #indiealice
Feeding cookies!! Perfect for breastfeeding Mums, have you tried lactation cookies?? I ate alot in the early days with Sophie 🙋🏻♀️
This is the face Nate makes whenever I blow bubbles in his direction 😂
Silverbeet & a silver set of rad wheels to play with.🚖🌱
I had the best weekend around home and doing domestic stuff. Sometimes it's those low-key weekends that you end up loving the most, right?
I saw THE wedding in my jammies at home, got in a run & a morning of crossfit (I can almost deadlift my body weight now - how crazy cool is that!) My arms are still totally rubbish though. Although they're perfectly fine at lifting silverbeet... 😂 💚 Gah, that strength stuff takes time to build!
Meanwhile, I'm playing with the @havalnz
H6. It has lots of cool features like seats that go all toasty in seconds, a massive sunroof, an amazing sound system and a big backing camera. It's fun to drive & V cool.

Today we headed into Christchurch to take the girls for a ride on the Tram, both girls fell asleep on the way in so we tiki toured around the city while they slept. We finally get to a Tram stop, find a park, get the kids out of the car and then Miss 2 1/2 throws up all over hubby 🤢. Back in the car we get and head home, not quite what we had planned but at least we all got some quiet time on the drive in to the city 😂. .
Thankfully we managed to get out of the house again this afternoon for a quick walk around our local reserve before dinner before we all got cabin fever! #sundayfunday
What a challenging weekend! Hubby has been on nights and this girl has been sick, I’m sure her teeth are moving too because she is dribbling like no tomorrow. Little Lyle has been super needy and Grace has been super naughty! FML being a Mum gets hard sometimes....but pictures like this brings me all the warm fuzzy Mum love feelings 💗

Another visit to the Agrodome. Kian and Edie both love going to the animal nursery to see the lambs and baby alpacas. They also saw rabbits and piglets 🐰🐷 Edie’s highlights was patting one of the big sheep dogs! 🐶
Three little fairies in the tree ❤️
Could today be any more gorgeous. But can someone explain to me why during the summer he won't go in past his bug toe and today he went hip deep wearing jeans 😞

BEST PARTY EVER! Said Levi, despite a bit of rain, and a few tears from Levi, (who got a little overwhelmed) he had so much fun with his little buddies, I can't believe my baby boy is going to be 4 on Wednesday!! #elfparty #midwinterchristmas #itswhathe
SUNDAY MORNING chilling by the fire. Outfit choice: models own. @deer_gracexo
shoes and @rascalandfriends
nappies (Our absolute fave nappies. Would never use another brand now. Honestly the best nappies we have ever used.)
Collecting pretties for a little miss turning ONE very soon. ( 😩😩)
Throwback to when Alex was just a few days old and had to be under the lights due to Jaundice. My Easter baby turned 5 this year and has gone from my placid little baby to a strong-willed schoolboy who's behaviour on the occasion makes me think I've failed him somehow. He can still be very sweet sometimes but sometimes his behaviour makes me want to pull my hair out. In general he's a pretty good kid and very different from his big brother, I'm just never sure if I can trust him to behave himself if we go somewhere new. #mumlife #mumblogger #kiwimamalife #middlechild #dailyparenting #lovemykids #throwback #honestthoughts #doingmybest
Raph eating an almond croissant is my spirit animal. No sharing with his mama. He did give the last few crumbs to his brother when daddy's brownie arrived 😁
Happy Birthday precious Edie! She had her first actual walk in the Redwoods this morning. I think if she had her way she would have walked the whole track to explore everything (and at her pace we would have still been there for her second birthday! 😂)
