Where are the kids?

No comments:
Happy Australia Day long weekend! Hope everyone is enjoying the extra day to the weekend. We have Dean's mum & dad (Nanna & Pa) up from Ballarat, VIC for the weekend and they are staying at my mum & dad's. Bella & Liam have spent the weekend there spending as much time with the grandparents as they can.

Last night when Dean & I got home we made yummy home-made pasta and just sat back with a glass of wine and I'm ashamed to say crawled into bed and were asleep by 10. It was really nice being able to wake up in our own time rather than the calls of a child. We enjoyed breakky down at Cronulla for the first time in months and then headed back over to see everyone. I don't know if I can convince him to have two breakky's out in a row, but I'll try!

Yesterday I finished Liam's monster. I saw a similar design on a website I came across a while ago (can't remember which one now of course!). He is all hand-sewen again and I drew the pattern from memory. I'm pretty pleased how he turned out!

I have some lovely photos we took over the past couple of days in my Facebook-thingy. Check them out here...

And here are some we had taken of Liam a week ago...

PS. Happy four-month birthday to Liam for today! I want my newborn back :-(

How time flies.. when there are two kids to chase! Welcome to the Blog we've started from 2008.

Liam is 4 months old next week and is growing so quickly. He started rolling last week and now doesn't stop. He has done it in his sleep a couple of times and is not to happy about it when it happens. Talk about a rude-awakening! He has moved out of mummy & daddy's room (sniff-sniff) and into the cot in the room he shares with Isabella. So far they share the room well, Bella knows not to be noisy when he's in there and Dean & I often get told off for talking while he's asleep "ssshhh Baby Liam sleeping mummy".

Bella is talking non-stop and dances non-stop and plays non-stop and eats non-stop... get the idea? She started day care at Bambinos near home today, and will be going every Friday. She apparently had fun, but didn't nap 'cause she was too busy chatting to the carers apparently.

This week I managed to pull a few hours out of thin-air to do some sewing. I made a gorgeous little hand-sewen elephant and as requested by Bella, a little cat. A monster is in the works for Liam. I have some lovely fabric coming from the US for some other ideas I have, whether they work or not is to be seen!
