Today we flew from Sydney to Wellington and Scarlett got to see her grandma and aunties for the first time since she was 6 months old! It was great so see them all reaquaint with one another 🙂 She is a very loved little girl 🙂
At Sydney airport in the morning, I bought Scarlett a scone for breakfast. She shunned the scone and proceeded to eat the butter straight out of the pottle using the handle of a plastic knife. Nice one bubba!
Today was our full day in Sydney. In the morning we attempted a nice brunch on Darling Harbour – instead it was a game of tag team, trying to scoff some food down before it was your turn to run after the monster, who was intent on investigating the fountain, wandering into the chocolate shop and chasing after and shouting at the seagulls!
She seemed sleepy after all that, so we postponed a trip to the aquarium and went home instead. Naturally, she then didn’t go down for a nap for about another three hours! So we just had some chill out time in our lovely hotel. Luckily, the aquarium was open late, so we headed down after bubba woke up from her nap.
Not so luckily, it turned out Scarlett was really not that interested in the aquarium! She gave a few obligatory “wow!”s… but really the things she loved most about it were running down the ramp ways and the little blue lights on the walls to light the way lol!
Chasing seagulls on Darling Harbour!
Nap time for everyone!
This is perfection. Sigh.
Today is the first day of our holiday – the mission day… our first flight of the trip! To be honest, it was a nightmare. I used to LOVE travelling and flying. But flying with a baby is NOT fun. Especially not flying four hours with a very active toddler.
But we survived and FINALLY made it to our lovely serviced apartment in central downtown Sydney just in time to flop on the bed and order some DELICIOUS burgers from room service, while bubba enjoyed munching on the hot chips.
It’s a holiday… but not as I used to know it!

Hey cutie, whatchu doin’?
Today Scarlett came with me on a trip to visit her Dad’s pregnant niece and take some maternity photos for her. She was a very good girl and quite enjoyed running around the park and only got in the way a couple of times 😛
But of course, any day is bound to be good when you start it off chilling out outside just casually wearing a fascinator…
She looks so little!
We headed out to the small local mall today to visit the Santa who lets you take your own photo. Scarlett wasn’t having a bar of him though and would only sit in front of him on the floor haha! She enjoyed the lollipop he gave her though 😛
In the evening, I tried to coax her into eating by giving her a selection of foods outside on the picnic bench, but she wasn’t terribly interested and preferred to play in the dirt.
Scary Santa 😛
Having a munch on a ping pong ball. As you do.
Pineapple for dinner for my fussy girl tonight. At least she ate some!
