tap tap tap... is this thing on?



After a crazy few months I finally feel like I am back to a place where I might be able to resume blogging with some kind of regularity. Our family has undergone a pretty big change since just before Christmas. We are now the carers for a little girl who could no longer live with her family. So our recently expanded family of four is now a family of five!

The changes have happened very quickly but quite smoothly and she is becoming more and more settled every day.

Molly has started school this year which is a wonderful excuse for us to lavish attention on her. We were very aware that she may have mixed feelings about welcoming a new family member however, starting school has given her a great focus and we have fussed over her in a big way. Mol is absolutely loving school! She is going to an IB school that has a Vietnamese bilingual program (6 hours a week!) and she is coming home every day able to speak more and more Vietnamese words. She has only been there two weeks but already knows how to count to five, sing a song about butterflies, can say sit down, listen, quiet please, walk, teacher, hello, goodbye and more! I am learning from her in this process which I love!

Richie is nearly one! Where has that time gone?! I feel like I was pregnant yesterday! I think I will do a separate post on Richie. I'd like to record a little about his first year and have it separate.

That'll do me for now. I plan to be back soon to chat about a few things I have on my mind...

Love!

Thanks love! I have been far removed from blogs for ages. Twitter has much of my attention but I plan on changing that! :)

I can't believe the little guy is nearly one. Weren't we all channeling labour vibes for you about this time last year?! Loved spending time with you all on the beach that day. I'll have to send you the pics of Rich eating watermelon/sand :) miss you so much xxxx

Kate! You all need to come visit us for Vietnamese food in Footscray (much better than Victoria Street just quietly! lol).. How are you liking the new IB program?
