Little miss Ivy

It’s official, there are now three strong females in the Tucker household. Ivy has joined the ranks, yes at an entry level, but have no doubts that she will progress to become as headstrong and resolute as her sister and mother… Her determination is already clear, and she’s just fantastic because of it… Currently, she is absolutely committed to standing up on her own, and totally focused on beating her current instability. There’s nothing she won’t leverage to get on her feet, and she takes advantage of whoever and whatever is nearby at the time before letting go for the few seconds her inner ear and chubby legs will keep will keep her upright… I expect she’ll be walking soon, which means she’ll be just eight months old, a whole 2 months or so ahead of Scarlett, who was by no means slow to get mobile. So, as I commented in a previous post, I think we have another live one on our hands…

Got to love Sydney Weather

Loving the daily show the Sun puts on in Sydney, maybe we should applaud the sun’s spectacular performance each sunset like they do in Ibiza, although there’s a good chance they do that for other reasons… It’s true that there are is a fair amount of complaining goes on here about how cold it is, but I think that’s for two reasons… One, it’s kinda nice in Summer, so Winter feels like a bit of a low blow, and two, few houses in Sydney have appropriate heating, so chances are you are freezing when you wake up in the morning if it’s a chilly 9.6c outside.

But right now, I’m loving it, my morning ferry ride sets me up nicely for the day, a chance to sit outside with my sunnies on soaking up the Sun’s warming rays while lightening my mood through a wee spot of photosynthesis… 🙂
