Wednesday, 1 January 2014: Nine Months Old.
Today is our last day at The Station, and it was hard not to feel sad!
It’s been awesome to escape from the daily grind and although a few dramas from home still managed to find us in the bush, being surrounded by Hubby’s loving, honest and down to earth family has been unexplainably wonderful.
It’s also been fantastic to watch Ayla hanging out with her cousins and second cousins.
Seeing her play with three other babies in a puddle of water left behind by an afternoon storm today was adorable, and watching her take her first “crawl step” this morning was priceless.
Ayla’s definitely going to miss all the activity when we go home, and although she won’t remember the trip her first visit to The Station has been recorded forever…
After todays storm, Hubby and a couple of the men set about fixing a concrete slab out the back that was pooling water.
And just before it set Hubby let Ayla stand on the slab, leaving behind two tiny footprints and an unforgettable memory.
