Enjoying the sights, sounds and scenery of miniature village Cockington Green in Canberra.
Dad Neil and baby Thomas were taking their safety seriously with these ear muffs on the worksite of the Bartholomew family's renovation project.
The family has been renovating a pub in the regional NSW town of Carcoar, Edwina sharing this behind-the-scenes snap of her children sharing a cute moment together in a wheelbarrow.
Mum and Molly were twinning in these adorable Christmas tees that they revealed they would be wearing on Christmas Day in 2023.
"Summer in spring," Edwina captioned this happy snap.
The family celebrated Molly's fourth birthday with a picnic in the park complete with cake, craft and their nearest and dearest.
Just look at those smiles!
"Strong Up vibes in Molly's new 'gobbles'," Edwina captioned this hilarious summertime photo of Molly get ready for a swim.
Baby Thomas at fourth months old. He's growing fast!
"A captain and her first mate," Edwina captioned this photo of her two darling children together at the park.
"Four months with my beautiful boy," Edwina captioned this sweet photo.
Marking three months with little Tom, Edwina shared this cosy snap of the two together at home.
"Human Blanket™. Winter essential," she said, adding, "#threemonthstoday #eightypercentspentlikethis."
It's hard not to steal the show when you're as adorable as Molly is, but we don't think Edwina is complaining!
The proud mum shared a series of snaps of "the most wonderful weekend" in Orange, New South Wales, where she was joined by her two kids.
Look at this trio! Edwina marked a special little milestone with her son and daughter as they posed up a storm for this snap.
"Two whole months of tiny Tom, our adored and slightly sat-on little brother," she penned.
Edwina shared a sweet new photo of her newborn son as he looked right at the camera while sitting cosy in the car seat.
“Bright eyed. Not bushy tailed. I just double checked,” she captioned the snap.
Taking a family trip up to Capertee Valley, Edwina shared her journey with fans as she shared two photos to Instagram.
In the first, Edwina posed with her son Tom and said, “The smug look of a mother who just survived her first solo car trip with a baby and a toddler.”
For the second photo, she sat in the back seat of the car alongside Tom and her daughter Molly and updated fans on the journey so far.
“The delirious look of a mother who five minutes into said solo car trip was already in the back seat feeding one child and changing another.”
Shortly after welcoming her son Tom into the world, Edwina shared her first update as a mum-of-two and posted a sweet snap on Instagram.
"SOS. Send snacks," she said. "I’ve been ‘stuck’ like this for two weeks."
Edwina delighted fans when she shared the happy news of Tom's arrival on Instagram on March 3, posting a heartwarming photo of her new bub.
"At such a difficult time for so many, many people, we hope Tom’s little face puts a smile on yours," she penned.
Her husband Neil also shared his own post to announce the birth of their son, revealing the sweet meaning behind his name.
"Introducing Thomas Donald Elliot Varcoe. We call him Tom," he said. "He arrived during a 1 in 100-year flood with flippers for feet."
He added: "Donald was my father's name. He'd be proud."
Edwina had some "big news" to share with her Instagram followers, as she revealed that Neil celebrated his birthday and that Molly had her "first day at daycare".
"Big news day at our house. Big birthday for Dad @neilwrites. Big first day at daycare for Molly. Big lunch/nap for me," she quipped.
Neil also took to the comments to joke that Molly is "now running the centre" - and we don't doubt it!
As their last Christmas as a family of three, Edwina captured the holiday spirit with this candid snap as they tried to wrangle in Molly for a family photo.
The toddler of course had plans of her own, as she walked away mid-shot, while a pregnant Edwina tried to fix her adorable Santa hat.
Edwina celebrated Molly's second birthday with what looked like a joyous party - made even more special with a Bluey-themed birthday cake.
"The unbridled joy of turning two xx," she captioned the post.
There's nothing quite like quality bonding time than getting up the Christmas tree together, and the sweet moment between Neil and Molly was captured by Edwina.
Although, Neil did cop Molly's foot to his face, making them quite the duo.
"Nothing says Christmas like a toddler’s foot to the throat @neilwrites," Edwina quipped.
Along with sweet family updates, Edwina will also share insights into the reality of motherhood, including this snap after a sleepless night.
"Up half the night. Asleep half the afternoon. Not ideal but also wonderfully wonderful," she said.
"Sunny side up," Edwina shared of her hilarious Halloween costume this year.
For Father's Day last year, Edwina penned a loving tribute dedicated to Neil, as she shared a few snaps of a sign she and Molly made for the occasion.
"We hope you enjoyed the in-depth analysis of the sign we made you," she said.
"Thank you for all the wonderful Neil-y things that you have passed onto Molly like her compulsive need to clean up ‘ess’ and her love of cows, trucks and ‘bee-bee-bee’ (honey). We love you x."
To celebrate her birthday last year, Edwina was joined by Molly for a "beautiful birthday bush walk".
"18 months with my little best mate," Edwina shared in honour of the milestone with Molly at the time.
To celebrate, she shared a few things she's learned in that time, including that "the second you dress your child in a lovely outfit, they will soil themselves in the car seat," and "your brain will never be the same. Either will your bladder."
Edwina shared this adorable behind-the-scenes snap of Molly with her on the job, and wrote: "On the box/in the box."
Proving that Molly takes after her dad the most, Edwina shared this candid moment between the daddy-daughter-duo.
"Peas in a pod," she said. "Right down to the holes in their pants and socks."
Using this snap as a chance to express how proud she is of her husband, Edwina explained that Neil, at the time, was just about to finish his year-long fellowship at Google.
"For most of that time, he has been working away in our front room with Molly and @mateandme as co-workers," she said. "Despite the constraints of the pandemic, he has trained 1000 people from 120 publishers."
She went on to add: "I’m very proud of what he has achieved and can’t wait to see what he tackles next xxx."
"One of us woke up like this. The other has @jennifermountainmakeup to thank," Edwina quipped, sharing a happy snap of her and Molly first thing in the morning.
Another heartwarming moment to add to the memory bank is of Neil having a tea party with Molly.
"Rostered tea break," Edwina shared.
Sharing a look into their stay at a farm retreat, Edwina wrote: "A week of weeding. He did it. I watched. A week of washing. I did it. She watched."
"And now to clean up and get back to real life," she added.
To mark Molly's first birthday, Edwina celebrated with a cake covered in edible flowers, and penned a message to reflect on her first year as a mum:
"Thank you for being the best Christmas present we could have ever wished for. I have so loved being your Mum, being perpetually covered in pumpkin and even being so bone-tired at times I felt completely bonkers. Still am and still do."
Always ready and smiling for the camera, Molly posed along with Edwina for this quick snap, where Edwina used a quote in the caption that read: "‘Sometimes,' said Pooh, 'the smallest things take up the most room in your heart.’"
Edwina, Neil and Molly took their first family holiday together and marked the special occasion with a sweet family selfie.
"It’s magic here," Edwina wrote.
"A start of a bond between father and daughter," Edwina shared. "Happy Father’s Day @neilwrites. I emptied the nappy bin as my gift to you x."
For her 37th birthday, Edwina shared this family snap of all three of them together and wrote:
"I appear to be the only one over smiling here but the rest of the family promise me they also enjoyed the day* xx
"*Maybe not @neilwrites who was waiting for lunch/dinner at this point #hangry #smizing."
To celebrate Molly turning one month old, Edwina shared a lengthy message to her daughter and started by writing: "You are a delight, Molly Matilda. Sure, the full throttle crying is not so delightful but thankfully that’s pretty rare. You just get hangry like your Dad."
"The first 48 hours of motherhood were challenging in a way I wasn’t really prepared for. I was a total mess, actually. I burst into tears in the kitchen when our midwife arrived, I burst into tears when @neilwrites went to sleep and I couldn’t, and a few more times, just because."
She added: "My goals have changed. Have a shower each day is now number one. Ticked that box. Wash my hair, occasionally. I accept I may never pee with the door closed again and it will be a while before I can eat a plate of food without cutting it up onto small pieces. None of my old clothes fit and, although spirits are high, my boobs are most certainly not.
"In short, it’s been pretty magical. At times I have looked at you with your Dad and felt like I would explode with love. It could still happen. Be warned. I’ll try not to embarrass you when it does. Don’t grow up too quickly."
For Neil's birthday, Edwina also penned a touching message to her husband on behalf of her and Molly.
"We are very lucky ladies to have you in our lives. Please accept this peanut butter toast from the two of us. Molly’s baking skills leave a lot to be desired xx," she said.
To announce the arrival of her daughter into the world, Edwina shared this sweet snap of the two together and said: "Meet Molly Matilda Christie Varcoe. Late like her Mum and tall like her Dad."
She went on to reveal the meaning behind her name and said: "Molly ‘cause we like it. Matilda for Neil’s Great Grandmother. Christie was my Grandmother’s maiden name and my middle name too."
"We are exhausted and elated. @neilwrites still in shock. Thank you for all the well wishes. We all feel very loved xxx."
