Ari is 6 months young

Can you believe it?....6 months have flown by already! It makes me happy and sad.....such a bitter sweet thing to see your last baby grow up. Adding to that Bethany turns 4 tomorrow!!.

Ari has the biggest smile....and you cant help but smile back at him. I still remember so clearly the first smile he gave me at a week old.....opening my eyes, saying good morning and this little face staring at me from our bed lighting up with happiness with his smile.

He rolls all the time now and likes to sit up between our legs to look at the world. He shuffles backwards and around in circles and sometimes he manages to shuffle forwards a little. He is still exclusively breastfed although I guess the time has come for us to think about solids.

His favorite noise at the moment is "Bababababababa" said at full volume, lol. I have a feeling my house will never be quiet again.

I made Ari a little celebratory outfit yesterday, he is wearing it in the above photo. A maiden mills fleece pull up cover and a matching black tie bib :).

He started cutting his first 2 teeth on the weekend which is making him a little cranky (adding to the chest infection that has come back).....thank goodness for baby carriers. Not only does it keep him happier but I get cuddles at the same time.

Now he rarely sleeps and he is a total mummy's boy......but he is my boy and just perfect in his own way.

So happy half birthday to my little man....looking forward to whatever may come next..

Spring is here and Fathers Day 2008

Its spring, the sun is shining, birds are singing and all that ;)

Fathers Day has come and gone yet again. We went out to lunch with DHs family to the local golf club, we sat and ate a nice meal overlooking the lovely Shelly Beach. It was a nice day.

Heres a shot of dad and kids....

And here is a photo I took littlest blue eyed boy and I....

and ......I airbrushed my dark circles and bags from my eyes *runs and hides*. LOL.

My Mission/Plan/Hopes

I am on a mission to loose some weight, 10kgs actually, so I have started walking a bit more and trying to stop eating chocolate. I don't want t o compromise breastfeeding so will be doing it slowly.

Pretty soon I will be going off line for a couple of weeks to get some stuff done around the place. It really is a mess and just so disorganized....not sure how I will cope, lol.

We will hopefully be moving in a few months, not permanently but just for a few months while we do some work on our place. I am not sure exactly as things are so up and down here. But if I can clean out the house then it will be easier when the time comes to move.

Anyway...gotta run
