When you're feel like things are finally going your way 😁
Everyone is loving on you, supporting you & giving more than they're taking 👏🏾
You feel strong within yourself and you're doing what you love #FinallyBaby
But there's that voice that says "this won't last princess"
Well you know what!?
It will. It will last and it will be epic as FCK...thank you very much ✌🏾
how beautiful are these? Hand stamped, wooden memory games are in stock 🌱
the brain develops pretty rapidly in the early years, including forming memory function. You may have already heard the idea that "neurons that fire together, wire together". Simply put, through repition and practice, our brain develops in new ways until things become 'automatic'. Simple activities and games such as this or playing 'what's missing?' with random objects you have at home, are easy ways to support memory development - something so crucial for all the learning to come in school years!
We had sarah’s silks on the play gym today!
I loosely tied our @honeybeetoys
play silks onto our play gym and popped it under the fan. When Audrey woke from her nap, she loved laying underneath them and watching them move under the fan!
At one point, she actually grabbed the blue silk with her hand and grinned when I gently swept the red silk over her face 🙊
I’m so excited that Audrey is beginning to interact with us which means she’s also ready to start some little playful activities too! #WatchThisSpace #BabyPlayInspo
Do you have a baby gym? What do you hang from it for baby?

No one ever warned me about the terrible 4's 😣 Overnight my sweet boy has turned into the opposite 😱 Anyone else found Four to be a hard age?!?! #help
A BIG "CHEERS MATE!" 🤝
I decided to support the @movember
Foundation in November with $2 from each @mateswithgrace
sale going to improve the physical/mental wellbeing of men in Australia. I'm pleased to say that thanks to your orders we raised $40!! As a new 'one-woman-show' business I'm really thrilled to be able to offer a portion of my profit to a special cause. About 50% of Australia's babies & children are really, really young men. Let's hope their futures are brighter than ever! 🌞
I still have fabric for our "Moustache" Bib too, so I've decided to make this a "charity bib" when my website launches soon and donate $2 from each sale of this design to a worthy cause. I have a few charities in mind but I welcome any suggestions!
If you've read this far thank you!! Thank you for your support and interest in my little biz! Have a lovely evening. xo Michelle
Photo albums are precious, and almost always become family heirlooms to treasure for generations. How much do you love looking back at old photos? Going through photos of you as a child, with your child, are moments that will happen time after time. These memories are so important, and significant to you and your child, even if only to show your kids that you were really cute as a kid too 🙂 ⠀
Read all about the importance, IMO, of albums and printed photos in the blog, link for this is in the bio!! ⠀
Even in this age of everything digital, we still need real, tangible objects to touch and hold...⠀

The perfect depiction of life with this child.
From the moment he was born! Ok maybe day 2 after the happy hormones wore off.
After going through a relatively easy first child I thought the second would be a breeze. Of course I knew there would be challenges juggling 2 kids and all but never did I envision this.
For the first 8 weeks this child did not sleep! Like ever! We had to engage a sleep consultant which was the best thing for our family and whilst we managed his sleep he was still an absolute grump.
Sadly I feel like I cannot recall the first 18 months of his life. It’s all a blur of just making it through to tomorrow. No amount of #ThisTooShallPass
would cut it.
As I look through my camera roll it saddens me that there are hardly any photos of him compared to my first child. I don’t remember being happy. 😢⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀
Struggling with PND on top of an already existing battle with depression and anxiety, has been hard.
This is in no way a pitty post. I just want to share my story. In case there is someone who is currently struggling and in the depth of this shit storm. I am not going to tell you it gets better with time even though I can now say I no longer feel numb towards my second child. He now brings me joy in the form of laughs and tears and plenty of tantrums.
However I want you to know that you are not alone. Ever. Whilst it’s not “normal” to feel this way it can. Reach out to a friend, to a family member or to a professional.
Please mama take care of yourself so that you can be the best person for your your tiny humans.

I'm a self confessed Excel lover. I just LOVE numbers. I often used to spend my lunch breaks at school solving maths problems 🤓 I then went on to do what many maths nerds do - study accounting! Prior to becoming a business coach, I was an advisor in multi-million dollar corporates providing guidance around business decisions - hello, spreadsheet dreams! 📊⠀
I know numbers are not everyone's cup of tea, and that's why I'm super excited to invite you along to a FREE online training tomorrow night where I'll share how to do a 2018 year in review! Check out your numbers and learn key takeaways from the year that was. This will set you up with a solid foundation to kick start an amazing 2019! 🙌🏻⠀

If you're anything like me, the Christmas school holiday is a time of joy and a time of "I'm a parent, get me out of here!". Not only we are busy winding down work and doing the Christmas shopping, we are also at home with soon-to-be-bored little humans.

Olivia is 5!! When she grows up she wants to be a ballet teacher (thanks to her awesome role models @tinytoesballet
) and a creator (of beautiful things for kids apparently). She is most excited about lining up when she starts big school next year but a bit apprehensive about the idea of making new friends. She is smart and kind and curious and so full of compassion for others. She is the best big sister Josie could ever ask for and such a wonderful friend. Every time I think about how proud I am of her, my eyes fill with tears and my heart feels like it will burst out of my chest. On the day she was born she filled a part of me that I never even knew was missing and since that day has continued to love, teach and guide me on our journey through life together. Happy birthday my darling girl. Thank you for the most amazing five years 😘😘😘

‘These cookies are so amazing! I’ve tried other brands but these are by far the best. Only been a few days & already have noticed a massive difference in my supply. For a first time mum these cookies have made my breast feeding experience so much easier. If you can’t decide on a flavour my honest opinion is that they are all seriously so so delicious can’t go wrong! (But beware they are super addictive hehe)
Thank you Made to Milk for your amazing service & for making such a great product!’
