Mum Mum Mum!

Friday, August 12, 2011

Yep, you guessed it, Mum is the word! Well it is on Allegra's lips anyway. Yippeeee! She finally spoke the magic word a few weeks ago now but it was only just the other day that I managed to capture it on film! Music to my ears :)

You might remember this post where I shared a video of Allegra's first word  (for those of you who don't already know, it was indeed Dadda), so how could I not do this same and share the evidence of my baby girl saying Mum Mum Mum Mum.... love you Allegra! x

And I just had to throw this next video in for good measure... Here is our clever and very chatty Allegra Isobel at 8 1/2 months old saying both Mum and Dad as well as 'hi' with a super cute wave....

See, I haven't been lying when I have said she has alot to say :)

On a separate note, I am very excited to say I now have the keys to our new place in my hot little hands! This weekend will see us move our suitcases across from our lovely temporary accommodation and stock the fridges in the new place (yes, that's plural, the kitchen comes with not one but TWO fridges) before our container is delivered on Monday and the real fun begins! Have a great w/e! x

On the home front!

Hello! I am finally back in Sydney after darting home to Melbourne for the last week and a bit and I'm happy to say I will be staying put for at least the next month! Before flying back to Melbourne, I spent a chunk of time with a relocation agent inspecting various properties in different areas around Sydney in hopes to find something that we would like to call home. With the rental market here in Sydney being so fierce and properties getting snapped up almost as quickly as they are listed, I was a little anxious that it might take us a while to secure something we liked. Thankfully, I was wrong! Call it luck, fate or just darn good timing but we get the keys to what will soon be our new home this Friday!!! Yeeehaaaa! And we got news last week that our container sent via sea freight cleared customs without a hitch and is being delivered on Monday! This also means an end to living out of suitcases... joy! I know I will have my hands full unpacking, setting up house and looking after Miss Allegra but I am SO eager to get settled in our new city and am once again itching with the decorators bug... hopefully this will see me return with some decor focused blog posts!

But for the time being, and as promised, I thought I would share a few pics of the temporary accommodation we have been staying in since arriving in Sydney last month...

The dining and lounge area.
The kitchen!
The master bedroom.
The terrace... heaven!
And the view :)
Once again, lucky Mr B isn't afraid of the colour pink! hee hee... Allegra and I on the other hand feel right at home :)

Oh and I promise to fill you in a little more about our new home soon! x

Allegra Isobel Bouw is 8 Months Old!

Monday, August 1, 2011


I'm a week late with this post... Allegra Isobel turned 8 months old last Tuesday! I cannot believe our delightful bubba girl is 2/3 of a year old!!! And what a delight she is! Allegra continues to grow into the most amazingly beautiful, confident, chatty, opinionated, loud, hilarious, cheeky and life-loving little girl. She really does fill each day with so much joy. More than I could have ever imagined. My little ray of sunshine. Oh, and I think it is totally worth me mentioning that Allegra FINALLY said the magic words last week... Mum Mum Mum Mum!!! Music to my ears and the sweetest sound ever! I am yet to capture this on film so for the time being, here are a few photos taken over the last couple of weeks...

Check out her cheeky, toothy grin...
 Allegra already has 8 toothypegs!
