Merry Christmas from PAXbaby!!!!

Merry Christmas, Joyeaux Noel, Nollaig shona duit, Feliz Natal!!!!

Can you believe that another holiday season is here already?? For the last 5 years, we have had the same traditions, same people (no offense, dear relatives & friends!), same food, but this year we have suddenly become adventurous!!!! This year we decided to do something so unlike us, so CRAZY, so unthinkable! We took our 5 children zoo on an airplane, flew for hours and have been traveling New Zealand for almost 3 months. We celebrated Halloween, Thanksgiving, and 4 of the kids’ birthdays while adventuring there, and now we are counting the days til Christmas while relaxing at the beach in Australia! We are in a tiny town on the coast in a tiny house walking distance (even for my newly walking 14 month old) to not only a lovely pool, but the clearest, bluest, loveliest sea you have ever seen!!! And all this splashing and swimming in a tropical heatwave while our friends write us with daily weather updates that include rain, 10 inches of snow, and hail!

Merry Christmas, mate, and to all, a good night!

As usual, my youngest is kept close thanks to my all time favorite baby carrier, the Beco Butterfly 2! THe ocean waves were warm and no babies were harmed during our photo shoot! Although my Beco did need to be hung to dry after all that surf!

  1. Hello Jillian – that’s a great shot on our famous Pippi Beach in Australia’s No: 1 town Yamba for 2090. It was lovely to meet you and your family today. Looking forward to catching up with you all again soon.

  2. Can I just say that if you truly have 5 kids (I’m not calling you a liar, I promise) you look amazing! I would love to have a stomach that flat! You go girl!!!

  3. Thanks, Felicia!!! #5 is a mirror image of #1 but with BLUE eyes instead of BROWN! It’s really fun comparing baby pictures! :)

  5. I’ve recently become obsessed with pax baby blog and have been looking though all the old blog post over the past month or so. I had seen you where traveling in austrlia where I liv rand wished I had know at the time, then I came across this! This is so close to we’re I live I’m so fascinated! I wonder if we ever cross paths and I just don’t remember. Anyway. Love the way you write! And the way you talk about baby wearing addiction. Hha makes me feel a little better
