Internet Blackhole

We're pretty much all moved in to the new place! The only hiccup? No internet yet (I'm using the hotspot thing on my phone). I'm hoping to post properly soon and show pictures of the new place and the baby. I've been doing a little knitting too.

Aurora and I are going swimming with some of the mums from my mother's group. Should be fun and a perfect day to do it, it's supposed to be 37 or 38C today.

Beautiful Day for a Walk

I took a break from packing today and went for a walk with some of the girls in the mother's group today. The weather is gorgeous so it was nice to be outside and by the river for a while. We stopped and had some lunch (some of the best pizza I've ever had - they aren't traditional pizzas they're thin crust with "weird" toppings like lamb and minted peas or chicken and couscous). It was nice to get out of the house and have a chat with the girls about the goings on of all our babies.

We took a load of things over to the new place yesterday and Glen's taking some things over on his way home from work. If we take little loads like this when it comes to moving the big stuff it should only take one trip (that is if I can convince Glen we need to hire a truck rather than using a tiny trailer!).
Aurora was in a great mood while we were unloading things and happily sat in her capsule and wiggled around on the floor

Happy baby in her capsule.

Can't wait until we can have a BBQ and play table tennis at our own place!

Trying to get into the groove again.

So we're a month into the new year and I haven't blogged yet. I've been meaning to but every time I sit down I don't really know what to say? We haven't been up to a whole heck of a lot - well nothing that would make exciting blog material anyway.
A little recap is in order I guess. My mum left at the beginning of December after a whirlwind end to her trip so we're now a family of 3 and we've been enjoying working out all the little quirks of our now 3½ month old. We had a nice Christmas and a very quiet new year. I've been going to a mother's group once a week and that has been really great. It's so nice to meet up with other people with babies the same age and get support through any difficult situations.
Aurora is an awesome baby. She's calm and easy going and is usually quite cheerful. She's been sleeping through the night for a little over a month now (with only a few hiccups here and there).

Here's a few pictures of her with her Christmas stocking:

In a few weeks Glen and I are moving to a little house about 10 minutes from where he works (we're about 30-40 minutes away now). I'm really excited about having a little yard and a bit of outside space. I'm also hoping to get more of a chance to do some sewing (we'll have a spare room that I can use for crafty things). I have a few "Little Differences" posts up my sleeve so hopefully once we move I can post those as well.
In the mean time, to get some of my blogging mojo back, is there anything anyone wants me to write about? Australia questions, Canada questions, baby questions, random questions? Ask in the comments!
