The Instagram Project

It’s a new year and I’ve beenĀ on maternity leave for just over 3 weeks. The Little Jedi’s due date is in a couple of days. Everything is going well although I don’t think he is in any rush to come out. I’m going to take that as a compliment.

We started the year off perfectly with a dip in the ocean….


The Wifey moved into her new office and ourĀ Little Jedi officially became a North Melbourne Kangaroos member (you have to brainwash them young).

The labour bag is packed, the car seats are installed and his nursery is complete.

I’ve been cooking dinners in bulk and the fridge and pantry have been cleaned out and reorganised. The nesting phase has truly settled in.

Are we excited to meet our Little Jedi?

Of course!

Are we ready?

As ready as we’ll ever be!

Am I terrified?


For those of you that don’t know, The Wifey has been documenting our ivf journey. Named, “Our Story To Make You”, you can see the teaser trailer here. Our journey to a positive pregnancy had not been an easy one so grab a tissue.

Until the final product is complete we decided to start an Instagram account of the same name.

Giving ourselves a “photo a day” challenge, The Wifey shoots the images while I write a story to accompany it. It might be a journal entry, letter to our son or a random story. Sometimes there will be an image explaining our backstory.

Hopefully we can keep it up.

For now, it’s all about the beach ball that is my belly….

The New Year

To be honest, I’m glad 2014 is over.

Don’t get me wrong, it had its moments:

Adding this little troublemaker to the family….


Revisiting one of our favourite cities (image courtesy of The Wifey)….


Catching up with family and friends in Hong Kong and Vancouver and having a relaxing vacation in Bali.

Bubbas were born, lovers were married.

The Wifey and I live a very fortunate life and we are incredibly grateful.

But last year was hard for us. Very hard.

I have never been through such a rollercoaster in my life. I know the ride’s not over yet but this year I have my hands in the air and I’m ready to take the next turn.

When we arrived home from Bali I was sick for 6 days with Bali belly. Thankfully it cleared up before Christmas Day – always a highlight for us.

We’ve started exercising again and our fridge is full of fruit and veges.

We spring-cleaned the house and ended 2014 at The Sister’s house flying tiny helicopters, playing darts and colouring in.

It was a great way to end the year.

2015, I am ready!
