Life with 4

Where I have been for the past few months? 

 I have been flat out juggling life, studying and being a mum of 4 boys.   Life does lead us into uncharted direction though when we least expect it.
So a quick run down of each month :

I Turned 27. Yes, I am 3 years closer to being 30.
Me with Alistair on my Birthday.

Not quite a "young mum" and not quite "middle aged".  Tyson got a Principal's Award  on June 7th.  On June 20th, Alistair learnt to climb things, I watched him one day flip a washing basket so he could use it to climb on to the couch. Cody had an ASD assessment in late June.On the 15th my brother had a son , So I got a new nephew. He is very small and cute.

Alistair's birthday cake that I made.

Alistair was walking by the end of July. Alistair also turned 1 on the 23rd. I can't believe he is 1 year old now, the year has flown by.  I helped run a facebook auction to fundraise  for a friend in need called Community heart connection it raised approx $10,000.  My Sister had a son on the 19th  , so I got a nephew who is very cute.  I also founded a  local support group for parents/carers/relatives of children with special needs on facebook. The group is awesome, it has grown so much , and the ability to network with those who are behind the movement to push for an autism specific school in Geelong , is very educational for me.

Well, so far (and bear in mind we are not even halfway through august yet haha) I have been told Cody most likely has aspergers  & ADHD, & Auditory Processing disorder.  Yep its quite the mouth full. 

I start a Bachelor Of Early Childhood Education this month, So I hope to blog more often (fingers crossed) .  I am in love with my steam mop and slow cooker (yes I know no one cares haha) 

Also check out this post for some tunes since today marks 6 years since my brother Aaron passed away

  1. Hi Jess,
    Hope you're travelling well and 2013 has been good to you so far. I'm guessing that with four little lads there would be never a dull moment!
