Princess Abbey

Down in the river bed at Simpsons Gap
Phil and Abbey

Having a paddle

All the princes and princesses (complete with a castle and dragon!) Abbey complete with Tiara and stolen high heels

Abbey's favourite part - cake time!

Lunch time (notice Abbey enjoying a honey joy that she stole of another child's plate....)

Abbey's new 'smile' face - she blinks in anticipation of the flash and thinks that's what we want her to do when we say smile.

Decorating the castle with the party girl Princess Taryn

A shot from behind to show the piggy tails :)

Posing for a photo in the bright backyard

Wearing her big girl nickers! They go up, down, up, down, up down and she often gets frustrated because she can't pull them up over her bottom which looks hilarious.

Abbey went to one of her best buddy Taryn's 3rd birthday yesterday which was a princess party! The tiara was off after about 30 seconds but I still think she looked pretty cute and her first time wearing piggy tails made up for it. In a day of firsts she also had her first drink of juice and her first drink of cordial - so pretty exciting for her!

Phil is recovering from a chest infection and pneumonia(!!) but we still managed to get down to Simpsons Gap in the afternoon for some cheese and bickies and a play in the (very shallow!) river that is flowing past the back of our place.
Everything is going well - Phil is yet to hear back about the Senior District Ranger job and potential move and things are progressing along well with the pregnancy... starting to show already!! I'm also enjoying acting in another job role in the P&W Tourism & Visitor Services Unit for another 4 weeks.
