Fake Choke

Here is Andrew doing a fake choke, followed by a real one, and then so on and so on! silly billy!


Thought I better update the blog!!!

Andrew had his first full day of proper daycare today and aparently he was a little trooper - he even slept for a full hour in a large room with 10 other babies!! So good. I reckon he is starting to enjoy it now that he settling in.

Mops & Pops are in Aussie and he misses them terriblye! ;)

Snotty Autumn!

Andrew has a nasty bug at the moment, poor wee sausage. His temp was 39 the other day,
and he is pretty miserable..... I took him to the park to cheer him up and plopped him in the autumn leaves.....

ONE YEAR OLD!!!!!!!!

Man, I can't believe that he is one! Sometimes I still cant believe he is my baby-boy!
Andrew is now a master crawler and I would predict he will be walking in the next couple of months. So cute!!!! Here he is at Milford Beach... summer is still hanging on just a little....

Kwila Cage

This is Andrew leaning up against the play pen which has become Kwila's protection!
I have it around her bed with a sneaky little backdoor that she can get in. Andrew is
in her face all day long otherwise! Now he just stands on the otherside of the bars and
looks at her!

cheesy grin follows..........

Our budding opera singer!!

OK, he wasnt opera singing, but the passion was there! He just loves to yell!

Andrew has been crawling for nearly a month now, and aparently on average a crawling baby goes 200 metres a day, and I can believe that! So after 5 days he has crawled a kilometre! and after 7 days 1,400 metres and after a month about 5.5k! Incredible... he has just about made it out to your house mum!

He is climbing and standing on everything and exploring everything and pulling everything and is generally a very happy baby. Tomorrow is he 10 Months old! I can't believe how fast the time has gone, and how I have forgotten those crazy newborn times!

I start work next week and Andrew is going into a homecare situation with three other kiddies. I am trying to be brave, but it is going to be hard leaving him
with strangers! It is a huge leap of trust.

Here is another piccie of him in the bath this evening. He is a very happy boy!

I love this picture!! It really captures how he looks to me...

Till next time....

Long Time - No Post!


Well since Christmas, Drew is sitting up, attempting crawling - he gets up on his knee's and sorta wobbles forward and then flops onto his belly and then all four limbs go at it like a fish flapping on the sand. Quite sweet really.

He is finally taking the bottle, so we are introducing some formula feeds and will look at weaning over the next few months. I want to ease him into it as he still needs boobie-conforting from time to time, so we'll see how we go.

He has been a really lovely angel-baby lately. Going down for all his naps and generally being such a wee sausage!

I am starting work again soon, so 2-3 days of daycare for him from early March. I am researching local daycare at the moment. Can't say I am too keen on not being with him for more than a few hours!

Bedtime for me!, it is late!
