Enough of these landscape images – we need some more of these wild chops.
We have got attitude to match our new found attraction to funky headwear.. not shy to voice her opinion and loudly at that, soo much so that we have pretty well lost our voice 😉
Among many things on this day, I made two mistakes;
1) I offered tickles a lick of my icecream.
2) I asked for it back
needless to say i had very little icecream 🙁
her we can see her scoping left then right to ensure there is no threat to her prize:) (noting that her sister and her mum were on the left and right 🙂
screw you punks I am outta here
Once seen never forgotten, even at 14 months tickles memory is disturbingly good, after one visit out this gate it was stuck in her head and was very determined to revisit the outside world 😉

Its hard life when ya gotta spend all ya time smashing down those darn towers people keep building 😉
17 frames of mayhem goodness 🙂
So I come back after leaving chaos and mayhem together for a few minutes and find someone got face painted with a crown and rosy cheeks and got loaded up with some crackers…
I should have known better than to leave them together alone, these two are gonna live up to their nicknames I reckon 🙂
I see some similarity to “Ben and Holly” here 🙂

i am riding a white mare across a green plain with the hooves thundering on the ground as the wind catches my cape and sweeps back my hair
well.. that’s what she probably reckons it looks like 😉
far from being satisfied with walking and climbing, the ability of being able to mount, ride and dismount the trusty steed (worn in and dutifully demonstrated by her sister chaos) was high on the priority list. After several close calls, i think we can safely say, tickles, you have nailed the rocking horse. nicely done 🙂
check out those grandpa pants too 😉
4 frames, all edited in

proud mum and a happy baby with a fist full of cake
5th October 2014, little old tickles has clocked up a whole year, 12 months ago (and 20 hours) the sound of her cry as she came into the world (yeah i know that sounds corny) is still something that is as fresh in my ears as if it was yesterday. The feeling of relief and joy that followed that moment still washes over me whenever I think about it. Anyway, enough of that 😉 fast forward 12 months and we have gotten onto two legs, climbed ladders, climbed onto stools like a little elephant and sat there, successfully eye gouged dad several times, nearly booted dad’s teeth out with some serious ninja kicks and most importantly of all, given us lots of giggles, laughs, smiles and happy memories with many more to come.
Happy birthday tickles. enjoy your cake.

and a serious license to use them
Whilst we have not quick cracked the running around the backyard yet and we seem to think crawling on all fours is a much superior and fast (apparently 🙂 ) means to get around, its quite a treat to witness the transition of a children from crawling to be able to walk – the marvels of the human body and development eh!
Although, i could do without the ear piercing squeals at random moments when driving.. thats kinda dangerous tickles! and while i am here, the eye gouging and kicking could also be improved upon 😉
btw, check out that belly…baby fat to the max!

Welcome to the tickle studio
I just found the best studio for doing portraits in, well kids portraits anyway 😉 now coined “The Tickle Studio”
Its a background, diffuser, child barrier and child entertainer all in one and for less that 20 bucks 🙂 My little tickles dutifully adorned with head band, testing it out for me, this is her corporate look – nicely done and I reckon your pretty darn cute 🙂
We are getting there, we have tried all the options and alternatives and I think that we have mastered the art of getting the yummy stuff that gets put in a bowl ( which is suctioned to the table for safety:) ) to the place that satisfies… the face 🙂
ya doing great tickles.
Tickles looking very mischievous 🙂
Not much stops Mayhem, even with being hit with her second bout of Bronchiolitis (which is pretty rare apparently) she is still motoring around, albeit wheezy-ing around :), this child has got one very fast crawl happening and is becoming very helpful when I misplace my car keys 🙂

Happy 5th Birthday Chaos, you have brought happiness, joy and an insightful perspective into our lives and its a privilege 🙂
Mayhem (aka tickles), is yet to have a birthday, but is well and truly living up to expectation and terrorising everyone around – but we still love ya 🙂
