David and I were able to borrow the Harveys’ car to visit some beaches around Perth.

Life's so fun when you're two!

It's not often that David captures the camera, so I thought it only fair to include this shot of myself. It was taken while I was dancing with Aïcha on the grass. I'm five months pregnant.

Siesta in the shade, December 2007
I remember admiring the way the Blisses put their girls down to sleep wherever they were. We managed to get ours to sleep outside, in the shade, and though I dozed, it wasn't for long. We're all covered with towels because the wind was chilly.
