Another Milestone

4 teeth now so I am balanced enough to stand on my own and smart enough to know which remote really works on the TV!

A lovely way to spend a day

On Sunday we went to the Kids Expo in Glebe Park and I got to pet the animals and have a balloon then we went to the Food & Wine Expo. Dad made smoked salmon pasta for dinner and we had a lovely day in 31 degrees. Dad bought himself an Ipod Touch and we bought 6 new fish.

Somebody Loves Mum

These are the beautiful flowers that we delivered to Wanniassa School on Monday from someone special. I bet you can't guess who?

They really taste very nice too.

Holiday at the Beach

This weekend we went for a holiday at the beach. We stayed in a big beach house in South Durras. The highlight of the holiday was my big tooth finally coming through (top, front, left.) Mum checked it in the morning and after lunch it was there. It was mostly cloudy and windy but the pool was warm so we went for 2 swims followed by warm showers.

We went for a 3 hour lunch cruise along the Clyde River and I fell asleep for an hour and a half in the pram on the way home.

On our beach walk it started to rain just as we got back to our room and it stormed that night which made for a nice atmosphere under the doona watching bad TV and bashing blocks together.

We went to birdland before coming home because I just love to feed the animals and pet them (gently!)

The aunties took me to CISAC today for a swim.

Aunty Rach has some very big news - soon I will have a little cousin. June 13th is when the baby comes and I am already so excited!

Note from mum - you don't have names picked and do a pregnancy test on the day your period is due unless you are planning - this baby was so planned!

A Perfect Date

Mum and I went to Dendy today and she said I was the perfect date. I slept for an hour and a half whilst most of the other babies in the 'reel mums' session cried and sooked. I crawled around the chairs and had a great time chatting to the babies in the front row. Mum said this was the best movie she has seen since 'Note Book,' a really soppy girl movie - next week we are going to see Evan Almighty.

Mum - Do you know anyone who is deeply in love after many years of marriage? 2 years doesn't really count but Stu and I have been together for almost 8 years and we love each other more and more every school holidays. I can't think of anyone else I'd rather spend every day with.
