2 teeth and a wave!


Teeth are finally showing themselves!  Not only 1, but two at the same time, no wonder she has been a tad cranky!!!  They’ve not cut fully yet, but you can certainly see them!  I thought there was something going on today, she’s got a fairly nasty nappy rash, has a slight rash around one ear, she’s been pulling at her ears and generally pretty cranky (well cranky for Emma!) so wasn’t at all surprised to see two white shadows under her gums.  You can see her teeth about to cut in this photo!

AND, she’s learnt to wave…it’s too cute!  Nanny was pretty happy that she was the first to see it…and since then she has been showing off her new skill to perfection.  Will have to take some photos to show!


9mths old


Thought I would share some photos of the kids.  Emma turned 9mths on Monday…here are some photos to comemorate the day!  Poor little Emma’s eyes are so red because of her cold!

Arhggghhhhh….don’t you hate head colds!


I do, started off with a chain saw in my throat yesterday and today the cold has descended…stuffed up head and nose, itchy eyes and a lovely headache!  And it gets better, both Cayden and Emma have the same cold!  Woohoo!

Onto a nicer subject…we picked the tiles for the new house on Monday.  It’s all so very exciting.  We are continuing the brown and cream theme through out the house.  Now we have to sit tight until we start building in August, with any luck!  I hate waiting.

Not much else happening I’m afraid!  I had better get off the computer and go and do some housework…yuck!

Choices! Choices….toooo many choices!


Yesterday we chose the colours for our house…from the bricks to the carpet.  Its all very exciting!  We are going to be having brown brick, gunmetal grey roof, wood front door and a light brown garage roller door.  (Just reading over that it sounds terrible, but it really works nicely together!)  Inside we are having dark chocolate brown carpets, wood look laminate kitchen, a quartz bench top, and the walls throughout the house will be a colour called Turkish bread!  Monday we choose the tiles for the kitchen, bathrooms and laundry, so that will be cool too.  It’s all coming together…now we just have to wait until July to start building!  The wait is going to kill me as i am not the most patient person in the world!!!

On to other things…our little girl is almost 9 mths…9mths on Monday!  It’s hard to believe how time flies past so damn quickly.  She is commando crawling everywhere and into everything that isn’t nailed down!  She occasionally gets on her knees as if to do a traditional crawl, has a bit of a rock and then her knees go out from underneath her and she gets around on her belly!!  Have to be a bit wise as to what i dress her in at the moment otherwise the neck of her top ends up down around her tummy and she actually crawled out of her pants the other day!!!  She is very interactive now and screams very well…especially if she wants your attention or she is calling for Cayden, the cat or the dogs!

Today we are filling our freezer!  We have bought our-self a hind quarter of beef and 1/2 a lamb at $6.50 a kilo…good value when steak is up around the $14.00 per kilo mark.  I’ve also been busy and making sauce, stocking up for the year!  Need to get another case of tomatoes and do some more…then i don’t want to see another tomato until next year!

Anyway, had better go and feed the kids and get going for the day…I’ve a massage booked in for this afternoon which i can’t wait for!  Have a good Saturday!

School starts!


Well Cayden started school and just hasn’t looked back!  He was very keen to get going on his first day, didn’t have any nerves and certainly no tears (can’t be said the same for Mum, although not lots!).  Cayden has been placed in a composite class with grade 1 and has a lovely teacher whom he is getting along with.  He is making friends and fitting into school life just swell!  Doesn’t he just look too cute in his huge uniform!


Also have to brag a bit…my big boy got called up in assembly on Monday to be awarded Student Of The Week for being a friendly and co-operative student.  Couldn’t be prouder!

I’ll try to be better and try and blog a little bit more often!!!
