Update on our household

Yesterday was week 35 so that means we are on the home straight now! Each pregnancy has gone quicker than the last so this ones been a bit of a blur with some hip pain lol.

Our little peanut was being good the whole time staying head down until deciding to somersault at 30 weeks to bottom down! Luckily 2 days later I felt peanut roll over again which was confirmed by my OB at our last appointment so hoping he/she stays that way until the end now!

This time around I've been taking Mummy's view photos as thats the way I remember my tummy looking, below is the most recent taken around 34 weeks. The bottom mustve been sticking out that day as it looks rounder now, not so pointy.

With Miss J and Miss M we got so many ultrasound pics but this one seems to be shy always hiding behind the placenta.

While I'm looking forward to meeting #3 I have not been as organised this time leaving packing of bags and the car seat until the last minute but my husband has definitely gotten the nesting instinct rearranging rooms and cleaning up.

Saving up for my ultimate pram (and hopefully the last as I seem to go through to many!) the Baby Jogger City Select, just trying to convince hubby this is the one!!!

The blog and facebook page will probably be very neglected in the next month or two but I look forward to getting back to shopping soon, so many new stores and products to try!!! xx

Czarque baby shoes

If you want your baby to start off on the right foot the way to go is with Czarque.

Australian owned and made each pair is handcrafted in Sydney of high quality leather, these are shoes you can hand down to your children's kids and will probably still look in new condition!

Miss M has had her Czarque for nearly 6 months now but her foot obviously hasn't grown as quickly as her older sisters did and only started fitting her at 12 months! We have the gorgeous Pink Suede Ballet Slippers (pictured below on Miss M) and they are the softest shoes I've ever felt and were perfect for when she started walking as the bottom moulds into her foot so is almost like walking barefooted. They look so cute with a dress and pair of tights and she receives lots of comments on them when out and about.

There's a whole range for both boys and girls. My favourite pick of the boys range would have to be the Cow Print Loafers, so cool and different they are sure to stand out. For the girls, besides the ballet shoes we have, I LOVE the Red Marble Patent Ballet Slippers, they totally remind my of Dorothy in The Wizard of Oz and are on my wishlist.

Check out the sizing guide before purchasing to make sure that it's going to be the perfect fit as we all know how much little ones love to pull off shoes!

Also, if you have a wedding or christening coming up and want the perfect outfit for the day their Christening shoes will be the way to make an outfit complete.

Czarque are also up for an award in the Kids Fashion Review Style Awards so if you love them as much as I do you can vote for them there and put yourself in the running for over $10,000 in prizes (including 3 pairs of Czarque shoes!). You can also find Czarque on Facebook where you can keep up to date with new releases, plus once they reach 500 'likers' they are giving away a pair and that looks like it could be soon!

Until next time, happy shopping xx
