Though I do miss the blog.
The holidays are a funny thing for me now being in the southern hemisphere. Christmas is in the summertime for one. It just seems... odd. But we put up the tree and played Christmas music anyway. Audrey kept trying to eat the tree and the ornaments.
I was a bit sad and homesick when the holidays started. It's the time of year where I miss my family and miss our family traditions. But over time I realized that we are a new family, with new traditions. And we are creating memories that will last with our own children. And I got really excited for all the Holidays to come. I am so blessed to be a part of this little family.
Christmas Day we went over to Phil's Aunt's house and had a big family get together. It was warm and sunny so the little ones went for a swim in the paddling pool.
I didn't bring Audrey's bathing suit or a hat, so I tied my scarf around her head into a makeshift head covering so she wouldn't burn. So cute!!
Over the Holidays Audrey has been growing and changing so fast. She has started crawling and she is quick as lightning! I'm chasing her all over the house as she chases what ever catches her fancy. It's busy work!
I'm learning, even more so, how important it is to soak up these moments in time before Audrey is grown and changed forever.
Family and growing. It's a beautiful thing!
