catherinecbrown It's too hot to do anything other than eat ice cream & be a dinosaur. And maybe go for a swim. 7d

catherinecbrown Will is off on slides & swings so I get to chill with this guy under the big tree.

Alfie (short for Alfred) the bear was intended for Will but Alfie spends a lot of his time snuggling with O. Often when we read The Velveteen a Rabbit at bedtime. I very much hope the boys love will make him real. "Real isn't how you are made," said the skin horse. "It's a thing that happens to you. When a chd loves you for a long, long time, not just to play with, but REALLY loves you, then you become Real."
"Does it hurt?" asked the Rabbit.
"Sometimes," said the Skin Horse, for he was always truthful. "When you are Real you don't mind being hurt."

catherinecbrown First beach trip for Master O.
This is our 'it's too windy & we are getting sand blasted' selfie. We managed to console ourselves with fish & chips + icecream. Except Ollie, he had pumpkin, carrot & potato. Sucker.

  •   emmabenecke I know what you mean, I have only just realised that I don't get in many pics with my Mathilda. Love all of your pics of the boys too, of course! So I may have got my hands on an @roxymarj bear blanket over the weekend, thanks for cementing my decision ️ x 3w

  •   rebygirl I somehow missed this! Just a beautiful shot. So nice to see a pic of you & your babies. Your face is too pretty not to show! 2w
  •   catherinecbrown You are too kind @rebygirl you know my preference is to be behind he camera, gotta get photos with our babes though. I love seeing photos of me with mum when I was little. 2w

catherinecbrown This ragamuffin spent his first night in his big bed. The bed he loves, sleeping in a new room required a bit more of an adjustment. Which meant I lay with him for an hour & then fell asleep myself 😴 whoops! He stayed there until about 4am and then jumped in with us. I'm still counting it as a win, probable because I'm still pretty tired. Also @kipandco + @roxymarj = my favourite! 1mon
  •   catherinecbrown Let's hope it gets better @helen_anne_love he's been trying my patience a lot this week probably doesn't help that Chris is working long hours I'm so glad you like them!! I hope the colours are ok 1mon
  •   catherinecbrown Cheeky is an understatement at present @pam_muller haha! 1mon
  •   catherinecbrown He fell asleep by himself tonight @helen_anne_love! Praise Jesus - was going out of my mind today. I just wish he would follow instruction. 1mon
  •   helen_anne_love Yay!!! So amazing!!! Told you!! Hehe. Oh I hear the instruction thing!! I have to say Teddy's name like 3 times minimum before he listens to me!! :( oh and guess what else awesomeness has happened??? Head lice!!! Yep. Teddy somehow got head lice, somewhere!!! Grrrrrrrrr!!! 1mon
  •   catherinecbrown Oh what?? Head lice is THE worst!! I'm so sorry. I remember getting nits as a kid ALL the time. I cried. I'll be praying for you all xx @helen_anne_love 4w
  •   helen_anne_love Thanks!! We've all been treated and I've washed and cleaned and gone slightly crazy!! (When I found out I had them, I immediately cut most of my hair off!!!) I've never had them before so it's been a giant learning curve. 4w

catherinecbrown Saying goodbye to this corner of our room as O moves to the nursery & W moves to his big boy room. I won't lie, I shed a few tears but this Moses basket is a wee bit small for our almost 5 month old. Sometimes I want then to stay little forever. 1mon
  •   catherinecbrown I found this one on eBay @jonteg I love watching my boys grow, time is just moving too quickly! 1mon
  •   catherinecbrown I know right @the_evilly! Thank you x 1mon
  •   catherinecbrown I think part of the journey of being a Mumma is learning to not hold on too tight because our babes are ever changing @tifanie_samala x 1mon
  •   littleusgems Gorgeous corner! I squeezed my little darling in the same Moses basket until she was 6 months! How blessed we are to have babies that are sheltered, protected, nourished and loved. 1mon
  •   catherinecbrown Thank you @littleusgems! My previously sleeping through babe was waking because he's too big, well done for getting 6 months out of yours we are very blessed Mummas x 1mon
  •   gardeniacottage Gosh you did well! My little ones are not so little in length and therefore grew out of the cradle before I was ready. The man of the house believes we have three basketball champions due to their height (May have to explain to him that there are other requirements). Compensation, our littlest nephew is now using my beloved cradle.x 4w
  •   catherinecbrown Having them arrive a bit (read a lot) early means we get more little time but if Will is anything to go by at 12 months he'll just take off! I'm glad your sweet nephew gets to use your cradle, I love sharing special baby items I love me some tall girls!! 4w

  •   emmabenecke So I'm totally doing this for my sisters baby shower this weekend, total copyright infringement intended 4w
  •   catherinecbrown Do it Em! No infringement though, unless Pinterest counts haha. How exciting for Karla! @emmabenecke 4w
  •   catherinecbrown Also I found it easiest to separate the Oreos when they were warm/room temp otherwise the cream breaks up. 4w
  •   emmabenecke Thankyou! Yes it's getting very exciting now. I might even give the mini version a go . Ok awesome, thanks for the advice....I need all I can get when it comes to baking 4w

  •   gnome_and_post Aw.. Thank you! 2mon
  •   the_evilly Thanks for asking lovely lady! This past month I haven't been doing well, bit of a mental crash after leaving my job but good changes are in the works and I think I'm starting to pick up finally. I will be looking forward to seeing some gorgeous gummy smiles 2mon

catherinecbrown It's been a long month of illness, busy schedules and very early bed times. I've been very quiet on IG but today we celebrated Mum's 60th birthday with a garden tea at the botanic gardens. She is an amazing woman & I hope she felt the love today and always. Once the fog lifts I'll be posting more x 2mon

catherinecbrown Sometimes things get difficult, like really difficult and we need to pay close attention, listen quietly and love unconditionally. This is a repost from the beautiful & talented @catherinegrace__ who will donate $2 to Beyond Blue for every regram of this image (up to $500) in assistance of those seeking help through depression and anxiety. I would genuinely like to ask, are you ok? I'd love to chat x 2mon
