Weekend in Wagga Wagga

30 Sep

We went to Wagga Wagga this weekend for the wedding of Ross’ friend Jacka. Ross was one of 5 groomsmen and was busy on duty, so it was the opportunity for me to get comfortable with traveling with a baby. Isabelle has been fantastic during the two car trips of 5 hours, and has been sleeping through the night at the hotel room too. We couldn’t really follow the routine this weekend and I think she had enough of the car, but overall she was adaptable and it was good practice. On Friday, I will be traveling to France with her by myself and I now feel more confident with what I need (especially we had 3 pooh explosions during the weekend so taking extra clothes for her is a must).

Nous sommes parti en week-end pour le mariage d’un ami de Ross. 5h de route aller et 5h retour, ça faisait du trajet pour isabelle. Et une fois la bas, difficile de suivre le rituel des siestes et les habitudes mais Isabelle s’est bien adapté même si je crois qu’elle en avait marre de la voiture. Elle a dormir presque tout le trajet mais une fois sur place elle n’aimait pas trop les transitions voiture/poussette. Ross était un des 5 garçons d’honneur alors était bien pris, ça m’a donné l’occasion de m’entraîner à voyager avec un bébé et me préparer pour le grand voyage pour la France vendredi. Elle nous a fait 3 explosions de caca pendant le week-end alors lui prendre des habits de rechange est nécessaire!

La voici en dessous à l’église, elle a été bien sage et n’a pas pleuré. Elle a juste eu le hoquet!

She went to the church for the first time and was very well behaved, she didn’t cry but had the hiccup the whole time.


Isabelle is now 3 months 3 weeks and starts to communicate with little noises. She is also starting to reach out and grab objects, which is amazing to watch as parents! She loves play time and when we read stories (short ones!).

Elle a maintenant 3 mois et 3 semaines et elle commence vraiment à vouloir communiquer. Elle commence à tendre les bras pour attraper des objets, c’est magique en tant que parents! Elle adore quand on lui lit des histoires (mais des courtes!).

    Cinq heures de voiture, çà fait déjà un grand voyage…
    C’est quoi une explosion de caca ?…
    Génial le moment passé avec elle avec un livre à découvrir, elle grandit à toute vitesse.
    Le voyage en France se rapproche rapidement, bons préparatifs.

    Hey guys,
    Lovely to hear you are enjoying playing mummy and daddy and that the pooh incidences have you well equipped Elodie for your trip home. After looking after many kids i say you can never have enough ‘wet-wipes’. For bums, mouths and everything in between they are a god sent! Tom has been keeping me up to date with your progress and i hope you’re both enjoying parenthood as much as he portrays. Enjoy France and the best of luck with the journey. Ross – try and stay out of trouble with Tom whilst your mrs is outta town. Lots of love, Fran. xx

      Hello Beautiful! It is Lovely to hear from you! Thank you for the advice, the wipes are my new best friend 🙂 I would have loved Ross to come to France too but he couldn’t take so much holidays! We hope you are well, lots of love xxx
