We have been spending a lot of time outdoors as a family, especially lately with the warmer weather and daylight savings. It is great. It feels like we have more time together during the day. Yes, the “winding down” time at night after Micah goes to bed seems shorter, many times like right now, I look at the clock and can’t believe it is 10.30pm already when I should really be in bed by 10pm, but it is great to be able to spend more time together as a family as Micah doesn’t need to go to bed until 8pm so that’s plenty of time together with dad when he gets back from work.
Hubby loves to take Micah out for a play in the grass, and Micah loves to laugh whenever we tickle him with grass or whenever Cookie our bunny rabbit happens to hop past.
The three of us would also often go out for walks after dinner, just before bath time. Today we walked to a park and let Micah go on the swing for the first time. He absolutely loved it! Such a happy boy who brings so much joy to our hearts 🙂
The coming weeks are extremely busy, as we have all of Micah’s friends’ 1st birthday parties to go to. I also have a baby shower to attend, a music team dinner, we’re going to hubby’s work Christmas party (it will be held at the Melbourne Zoo so I’m very excited because it’s not only Micah’s first trip to the zoo it’s also MY first trip to the Melbourne Zoo!) and of course we’re having family over for Micah’s 1st birthday, hubby and I are celebrating our 5th wedding anniversary (oh I really need to book the restaurant!) and I’m celebrating my birthday just with a few friends, and I have a couple of photo shoots scheduled just before Christmas, a few catch ups with friends, and of course… Christmas! This month will go by really quick and then we have to start planning and packing for our big trip to Malaysia!! Oh, Micah’s passport arrived today it’s so cute that my little man has a passport! So we are all set to go.. yayyy!!
