So it begins.  Jesse has a little more strength, Luke can ball handle a bit better.  Their baskets are all over the shop and they sometimes cheer and sometimes jeer depending on their mood. If they are anything like their dad, many hours will be spent here in their future….looking forward to (hopefully) seeing their love for the game and sportsmanship evolve! #tealilyjan2018

Hiding among the stars✨...
If you come for a visit, she is more than likely to rope you into a game of hide and seek.  Totally worth it just to hear her uncontrollable giggles and see how hilarious her hiding spots can be! #tealilyjan2018

It’s always the simple things that make them smile.  A park to themselves.  Water, dirt, sticks, and leaves.  And each other’s company on a windy summer morning.  #tealilyjan2018

My ring pop* super heroes.  Happily lost in their own little sticky-sweet world.  #tealilyjan2018 (*thanks for the props @hellonaomicakes 💍🍭😘)

Joel taught the boys and I how to play chess somewhere in between Christmas and the New Year. Our little chessboard has since featured daily and has been carted off to many a playdate.  A little amazed the boys were so interested in it, and oh so very thankful for the extended quiet time it brings…unless Mimi decides to show her love for the game by using it as a footrest or headrest of course.

Family friendly outing today and the crew were all smiles. Out with friends for Future Park and then catching up later with old friends we hardly ever see in the evening.  Amazed at the beauty of kiddie friendships, going from strangers at 3pm, a little fight over a champagne cork in between, then delivering a ‘stage show’ by 7pm.  They co-ordinated themselves to the soundtrack of Trolls, complete with coloured-in torn up paper headbands and everyone given a role to play.  The best kind of childhood nostalgia right there. #tealilyjan2018

I set out with an ambitious ratio of 1:3 today - a ferry ride and a trip to the MCA with a bag full to the brim with food for good measure. To my amazement, we strolled through Circular Quay with the little one in the pram and the other two walking alongside me (and not running 200m ahead like they always do). It was a little too good to be true and as soon as we stepped in, we had our own exhibition of Mimi screaming ‘too scary!’ and ‘I want to go home’ for an entire 15 minutes, while Jesse and Luke managed to be told off by the staff in every single room for being unintentionally too close to the exhibits. Jesse burst into tears because it was all a bit too much. I was a little disappointed as I was hoping to take a photo among one of the magical light installations but instead we left early, put the camera away, found some hot chocolate, and enjoyed some street theatre instead. #tealilyjan2018

Kooky Lukey.  Stomps through the house all day but finds a way to creep into my bed on his tiptoes unnoticed in the wee hours of every single morning. Ready to provide completely random answers at any time of day I’m not quite sure if we’re on the same planet. Requests screen time with every other sentence yet takes to sports and the outdoors with such ease it almost doesn’t make sense. Wildly jealous.  Fiercely loving.  On a mission to find his place in this world and I pray we get to do this hand in hand for as long as he will let us.  Love you Pooks. #tealilyjan2018

Big brother, little brother.  Working together to satisfy their mama’s asian genes requiring workbooks and piano practice before screen time and pool time.  I’m kind of lucky they enjoy it (most of the time), and I secretly love listening to them explain concepts in their own terms while seeing chuffed little I-figured-it-out faces like these. #tealilyjan2018

This little sparkle has made our days brighter, (our nights longer), our hearts bigger, and our laughter louder. She tells me she’s a princess, calls the boys her princes, and us her king and queen.  She’s a gift from the very best, and we still marvel that she is ours.  Love you moo. #tealilyjan2018

Sweltering, grumpy and groggy post afternoon nap.  Thankful that in their little world, cuddles and tickles* go a long, long way.  Come to think of it, they go pretty far in my little world too. (*Not actually tickles by common definition.  More so drawing little patterns on their skin, and usually until they fall asleep.) #tealilyjan2018

This time next year.....hoping to be road tripping round New Zealand stuck in a campervan with my little tribe. This idyllic little spot captured when we had only two on our hands, 3 months and 1.5 years old...feels like a lifetime ago! #newzealand #film #pro400h #contax645 #dreaming #familyadventures
