umm- blogging took a backseat for a long time, during the past 18 months.
I've made a few things... but I am most proud of this one....
another baby, boy he'll be turning 1 in a few weeks. Our oldest is nearly 3 ! So, that is where all my time has gone. Babies, cooking , cleaning poopy and mommy groups... `

As Tonya has been so busy as of late, I thought I would take the opportunity to share this classic headshot of our dear friend. I am not certain if I should be seeking permission from the Kathy Muller Agency, as I know this circa early eighties shot was taken at the height of Tonya's modeling career.

Share your love and adoration for our dear friend by sending your classic photos with any details to xoxo

it's been a really hard month.

kainamu's grandpa-koro passed away on 20 february.

i'm also back to work full time, but kainamu is near in the creche at my work - so it 's not as horrible as i can imagine it might be if he were farther away. we are still adjusting to not having all of our days together.

he really loves dancing. he has 6 teeth now and is on the verge of walking. he loves his kitties and plays with them alot. he is also eating lots of new things- loves blueberries, vegemite and ice blocks.

check out these delicious purple Maori potatoes!! yum !! they are the most vibrant purple!

i've been making these japaense plush animal- they are really fun - my new stress relief.

it's been a long time since i've blogged-oops

it's been busy, we were in hawai'i for a month.

kainamu is 9 months old , and in the last month while we were away, he got 4 teeth, started crawling , pulling himself up , eating cherrios by himself, he can say "mama" , "dada" and "nah-nah" when he is annoyed , irritated or tired!
we had the best time in hawaii. we caught up with lots of friends and relatives, but it was really too short.

here's our little monkey in his pants that i knitted him,which i didn't think he'd get a chance to wear as i finished them a little late in the's almost summer for us.. but we did have a cool day last week.

I also made a pair for his friend matthias, in mint (or is it green tea ice cream green?) and chocolate and started a striped vest/tank too.

they are going to meet each other in 5 weeks!! and matthias lives in the northern hemisphere and he should get some good use out of his pants.

And i had to included a pic of monkey in his french swim suit. we 've been going to swimming classes- or more like introduction to water classes. it's a salt water pool which has been great for his eczema!

knitting pants for Kainamu , these are my first attempt- wool .., stars can do with some improvement.... but not too bad for a first attempt.

these are definitely for next year as it's finally getting warm and they are too big anyway.

I added a drawstring to them, but haven't taken a pic of that yet.

My next project is a pair for Matthias and pair of merino sewn pants for both of the munchkins- kainamu and matthias --

SPRING IS HERE!! ( in New Zealand)

it was the first day of Spring - yesterday and we had fun taking these pictures.

I think we have his eczema fairly under control -he still has flare ups every week.

He got his first cold last week , had his first bites of solids-I fed him poi. And he started rolling over all by himself!!

I can't get over how quickly time is going by and he is already growing so fast!

Knitting wise- I am knitting a pair of orange pants with green stars- I guess it will be for next winter - or for a smaller friend -if they are too small . I am also knitting a great little sweater with a bamboo yarn that is soo cool, and I am going to try and make a little periwinkle romper thing to go with it. I 'll post pics of that later.
