10 Months










This post is a few days late. I usually always upload Aston’s monthly updates right on time but this month we were away and too busy to do it. Yesterday Aston and I went to the beach together. I planned on going for half the day but little miss decided to nap for 4 hours and didn’t wake up until 2.30pm! I think she is catching up on sleep from last week. Anyway, while we were at the beach I decided to do her 1o month photos there but I didn’t have the camera on me. So you’re stuck looking at my iPhone photos haha. The quality isn’t so good but I had to get creative with the shells and didn’t want to miss the opportunity to shoot photos.

Aston is almost a year old! I am still figuring out what to do for her birthday. I have ideas but ughhhh I can’t rely on the weather! In one month she starts kohanga and in two months she turns ONE!!!! Gosh, it’s crazy.

We’ve done lots of things in the last month. We had Christmas and went kayaking (not Aston), we went to Hastings for my Koro’s unveiling, we slept on the marae (mine and Aston’s first time), and we’ve spent time at the beach. So here are a few photos, again, from my phone.

This is a new smile she’s been doing for the last couple of weeks. She really shows off her bottom tooth haha.


This is my favourite. She’s so loving. Sometimes.
