Happy birthday to the littles member of my girl squad! 😍 1 year!!! I can’t believe it’s already been that long since you came into our lives! 🎂
Who says the middle child is always forgotten? No one could forget this face and his heart of gold. #chickenmiddle
Let me a love you a little more before your not little anymore... it so much fun to see how Aria problem solves but she’s growing up too fast. 😭❤️ #timeyouthief
This past week has been full of sick kids, of coughs, high temps, sleepless nights and changed plans. But it has also been wonderfully full of family + loved ones, quality family time, walks + bike rides in the fresh air, time + conversations with my mum, sleep-ins, a (childless!) meal on steak night at the pub, catching up with an old friend, meeting her beautiful family + feeling like no time had passed, donuts (a lot of donuts), sunshine, home cooked meals by my mum, a lot of delicious pudding, chaotic calm, Kmart shopping, museum wandering, and laughter. A wonderfully full week.

♡CUSTOMER LOVE ♡
One of the things I love most is getting to see our swimmers in action on our gorgeous customers. It's a real privilege to get to see your holiday snaps and all the beautiful smiles that go with them. It's even better when I hear that not only do the mamas love the products themselves but they get stopped and asked about them too by others. This lovely lady made my day when she told me that she'd had three other mums ask about her little guys rash vest and swim nappy set at the pool. To be fair, he is doing a superb job of modeling them! Thanks for sharing @callabeth
What a stunner hey? 😍😍😍 I could stare at this picture for hours. Don't mean to brag (but yes... I do), but dear lord I made such a beautiful human.
Both on the outside and the inside. She's so kind, clever and just scrummy to know.
It's so humbling to see her grow into such a lovely girl.
But maybe not quite as delightful before 6am... 😫
Captured mid roll! Happy 5 months to my sassy girl! Also how are we at 5 months already?! As I said before time is a thief and needs to slow down! This girl is constantly moving and always rolling. One minute she’s on her back the next she’s on her tummy! She’s definitely a tummy sleeper these days. Her love of music continues to grow and she has made it known that the greatest showman is her ultimate favorite! Play it for her you may even catch her singing with you or it seems like she’s singing 🎤 😂 // its amazing how much in a month she has changed and grown! #growwithava
Stressful times over here in the Feng house with getting everything ready! T minus one week till our big move! Car got picked up today and got delivered to the Seattle Port to ship to Hawaii this weekend! // #alohaSEAyoulater
Busted out of the house for a morning at the aquarium with our besties 🐠🐙 shoutout to @whitneyirene
for being the best and snapping this 📸

🌈 I miss this reed print, it was so popular! But I've decided not to restock it right now in favour of *new fabric* 🙊🙊. Keep your eyes on the grid over the next few days for some pics when it lands on my doorstep! It'll be up on site really soon. .
🌈 Cuff shorts, as always, up on our website, at least for the rest of the summer! Link in our bio ⤴️ 😚
She might’ve only given me 4 hours sleep last night but with a gorgeous happy face like this, she’s very quickly forgiven...
• Even if these nights are long, the days are short and the years are shorter so I want to savour these moments and remember them forever. 5am melting of the heart •
She reacts exactly the same way I imagine my two year old self reacting if my Mom told me I'm going to get a "milkshake" (@starbucks
vanilla creme kids frapp)
⏲️ Day 11 of #100happydays
There are days when all your plans and timing goes for a toss due uncontrollable circumstances. But, as they say need is the mother of invention.
So yesterday, There were no snacks or food that Kiaan could easily eat and he was super clingy and not staying even for a bit without me.
I didn't want to to cook putting him in the carrier because I find it a little risky.
The food cooked by our cook was tad too spicy for Kiaan's consumption.
I was waiting for @foodwalakban
to come soon from work and rescue me from the situation.
I prefer if Kiaan eats a proper meal rather than just nursing for dinner. This is for my selfish interest because he sleeps longer if he has eaten and then nursed. Might not be true for all babies. It's just my observation with Kiaan.
So till daddy bear could get home struggling with traffic, we tried our hands on tomato (salad before dinner,I say !!!).
And oh my, the way this little man ate half a tomato was the best thing about the otherwise horrible day.
PS: he has no teeth yet but he managed to consume the tomato (without the seeds)
If you could give your younger self one piece of advice what would it be?
Would you tell her to say what she feels and not please everyone around her? To reach for the stars even if she misses, at least she’ll land on the moon? Never give up? Love herself for who she is inside and out?
Do you tell yourself these things today? Why not? It’s never too late to dream so big it makes you want to faint🙌🏻 we are all meant for bigger things. The Universe is always working in the ways we think. So think positive, think big, go for it, and talk like that younger version of you is waiting for your advice. Then take it😘
I’m always here to help you be that goal digger, just reach out 🤗😍
Things to teach our children.
Uncontditional, unwavering love. It isn't dependant upon anything and won't fade (no matter how much he keeps me awake 🙄) Thanks for being you, Ro 💞
I realize we've posted this sign before but I will post it every time I'm there because you know we all need this reminder!
It's not usual that these two play happily together at the moment. While it might look like they're petting the rabbit together, in reality Abe's probably about to pull her hand away and tell her she can't touch his bunny. 🐇 BUT, this week we've taken inspiration from @fiveminutemum
's new blog post and have been trying some of her ideas for play with 1-2 year olds. And do you know what? Abe's actually 'joined in' and played happily alongside and even with Betts. We especially liked the sensory tray and the fort/tunnel building. With the first while Bette bashed and threw and mouthed, Abe made picture shapes on the floor with the items. Our fort was his creation, but he built a huge tunnel leading into it for her to crawl down (and back, over and over) and even held the torch so she could see. (Tbh he didn't need to, it wasn't that dark, but I'll take the kindness). Whether it's because I've sold them as 'stuff we are doing for Bette' or that they're something different to what we usually do, I'm really seing them play together so much better. In fact, it's really interesting to see how they interact and access the ideas and how Abe (at 3) naturally extends and develops them himself. If you have two (or more) at different stages, make sure that you check out her page.
Sitting in the airport, already missing this #partygoblin
❤️ January better hurry. 👯♀️
Real life. A messy house means the kids are happy😁 and sometimes we have to give into the chaos, embrace our messy lives and find a way to keep our health in line along the way🤗 it’s not always easy, but trust me, it’s worth it😘
So messy house and all, I’m getting my rescheduled afternoon workout in😅
Because I’m worth it
Because messes can wait
Because the kids are happy and quiet
Because I’ll only get today once, so I’m going to make every minute count 💖
How about you?? You with me??🙋🏻♀️
