The one with class and heritage park

Today we had a busy day you slept in and i had to wake you to go to our last baby in your back yard class, we were late so we stayed a little after and spoke with Miss Jennifer.  We adore her and she adores you, everyone was shocked at you climbing up and standing and letting go.  No one said it but im pretty sure they were impressed with my reactions and the fact that i caught you!

Then we went to Heritage park with Evan, Darius, Myla, Arden and Izzy.  you guys had a blast and we went on the boat and walked around.

I love you today and always, mammy xxx

The one with the Stairs

Today we headed up to see Shannon and Ros, you had a good time and were well behaved, Shannon couldnt believe how you were pulling yourself up and walking along things :)

Then when we got home you discovered the stairs, I let you climb up them and you had a little slip down but you didnt hurt yourself, hopefully you learned your lesson and wont go back to them.

The one with the Frozen Yogurt

Today we headed out to the dollar store to pick up felt for your lap books and daddy suggested we get some frozen yogurt.  From your face im guessing you didnt like it but we liked the new place in McKenzie towne you pick your yogurt, then your toppings so you can have whatever you want, daddy and i enjoyed it :).

The one with the Highland Games

Today we went to the Highland Games with Dave and Noreen and to be honest we weren't impressed.  To be honest there was just a lack of organisation and competitors.  They came for dinner and we had fun and im super happy to see you in your kilt

The one where Daddy took the afternoon off

Today we had baby in your backyard in the morning with Miss Jennifer, you were off with Erin and Elizabeth and pretty much ignoring me!  You and Darius are so cute together.  Then we went to pick up daddy he had the afternoon off. We went to the Ralf Klien building and had a look around but some of the paths were closed so we decided to use our Corn Maze Pass again and we got our round of golf in before you woke up, again your Daddy beat your Mammy!

Then home for Daddy to cut the grass and jet wash the house.  It was a fun family day :)  LOVE afternoons like this make me so happy.

Love you today and always, Mammy xxx

The one where I woke to you standing in your crib

In the mornings I try to leave you as long as possible so you get a good nights sleep, so sometimes when you are moving around I just ignore you until I know you are awake, normally you put on your aquarium and thats how I know.  However, today i looked over and you were standing in your crib chewing the cross bar.

Today was a low key day we just chilled at home and went for a couple of walks.  

You did have a moment with Hamish where he tolerated you petting him and you LOVE to pet him, hopefully if we keep working on it you two will be friends!

I love you today and always, mammy xxx

The old one with the Corn Maze

On August 4th we took you to the Corn Maze, we made it round the little maze but about half way through you were asleep so it was down to Daddy and I to get back out!  Then whilst you slept Daddy managed to beat mammy at mini golf! (seriously what is the world coming to?).  Then we just walked around and went to the petting zoo, it was a fantastic day out with my boys.

I love you today and always mammy xxx

The one with the Height and Weight

Today we went and got your height and weight measurements for 8 months (yes I know im two days late but the clinic isnt open on a Saturday).  You are now 73.5cm tall and weigh 18.76lbs!  Which puts you in the 82nd percentile for height and 28th percentile for weight, still tall and skinny :).  I knew you had grown this month you just seemed to be so tall but i still got a shock when i found out you grew 4cm!

After the clinic we had a boring day we went to Target and all you got were socks and a discount CD, then home for lunch.  You will pretty much not take your bottle at noon now, you took 50mls today but then you wolf down your food.  I was a little worried about you not eating enough but you put on about a lb last month so im thinking we are good, ill just keep letting you guide me!

After lunch we had a walk around 130th getting stuff for dinner!  When we got home i got you down for a nap which you really needed but as always decided to fight.

I had to take your mobile off your crib I caught you standing trying to use the elephant to keep your balance, my life is never going to be the same it's going to be full of mischief and adventuring and I couldn't be happier.

I love you today and always mammy xxx

The one with the Rock Garden

I know I know I sound like every other mother out ther but seriously where has the time gone I honestly can't believe you are 8 months old already. They have been the fastest, most amazing, most rewarding, most fantastic, most hectic and most sleepless 8 months of my life.

 We took you to Reader Rock Gardens today and it was beautiful. We has the stroller so we couldn't really go round all the garden but we managed to get some photos. We put you down to crawl and you HATED the feel of the grass on your legs and hands. Daddy tried to show you it was ok to crawl but you still weren't convinced.

Your top right tooth broke the skin fully today and your teeth are sore, you also seem to be catching the cold you gave me and you are miserable my heart aches to hear you sob in your sleep beside me, I wish I could take away all the pain and discomfort.

 I love you today and always, mammy xx
