All creatures great and small!

It was bright and sunny this morning and in a moment of weakness I had said to my husband last night that I would cut the back grass. I was mad totally and completely but I am a woman of my word so out I went this morning ready to take on our very tall grass. My husband set everything up so all I had to do was strap my little one, on to my back and away I went. We however met a new neighbour to us and that was our local friendly Possum. They are meant to sleep during the day but this one was just having a look around before slowly retreating under the shed for it's sleep. I am getting more and more amazed my the wildlife around here. So far we have had Peter the rabbit and Charlie the chipmunk and now (hmmmmmm..... a name???) Twila the Possum. Who knows how many rabbits and chipmunks we truly have but for pointing out purposes we just have the one. Anyway the grass is now cut and my little guy fell asleep on my back and has been now transfered to his crib where he sleeps still. I am hoping for not too much longer as I need to also go and get some shopping done.

Bumps and Lumps

It happened today. As my little guy finally decided that responding to mummy calling him was a good idea he turned and tried to run towards me. Alas he mind and feet did not manage to keep pace and we crashed with a bump onto the floor. Now this is not the first time this has happened but this time it was hard enough to get a lump right on his forehead. I almost thought he was getting a third eye. But no just a lump from his bump. My little guy however recovered quickly and is back to trying to run. I do keep telling him however that he should really grasp the idea of walking before we try and run!

Sleep is Golden

For the last few nights my little guy has done the amazing task of sleeping through the night. I can now fall asleep with no fear of waking within the next hour or more. Usually we have woken around 6am but this last two morning it has been 7am before those first cries have occurred.

Other than that life is in many ways uneventful yet full at the same time as day to day events occur. The new house is becoming more and more like home as we hang up curtains and unpack everything.

Number 6!

If I was into lucky number I would choose 6 at the moment. As finally number 6 tooth has arrived which is a joy to both me and my little guy and also something amazing happened last night and that was my little man slept through to 6.15! I woke to him crying and had to stare at my clock in disbelief! I hope and pray this is now going to be the norm.

However the ret of the day was not so great as my little guy had to go for a follow up scan on his kidney. It was enlarged when he was born. Now this involved no invasive procedures, just a simple task of lying still! This is a task however that even asleep my little one struggles to do, so as mummy had to pin him down while the doctor took the ultrasound the world ended and I went deaf. Recovery was quick and sweet after and a long nap in the car was taken. All we have to do now is wait and see the doctor for the results. Hopefully it willbe a hello, good bye type visit and never see them again.

New House = New Home!

As I sit surrounded by unpacked boxes and feelings of being overwhelmed creep over me I remember that in the long run this is all worth it. An example was yesterday when we were having breakfast and a Chipmunk sat outside our sliding door eating on some seeds. Lucas stared out and watched this little creature run around outside. It is then I think these a the little memories that bring a happy childhood. Our unloved house is slowly turning into a loved home. The rooms are slowly, very slowly being to take shape. Things are being fixed and I am sure if this house could speak it would be saying "Finally someone cares!" The house is having new this and that added, along with fix this, clean that. I am sure that in about a months time this house can stand proud next to its nieghbours as it will look like a home that someone loves to live in.

My little guy is enjoying all the space to practice is walking and soon running in. Although we are still struggling to nap during the day. I think it is because the room is so light ad=nd having never been a good napper this is adding to his problems. But the new curtains have arrived and hopefully put up today. My boy is now getting better at night although we are still waking up. I also hope soon to encourage sleeping till 7am. But we are taking it one step at a time. The same way unpacking can only happen one box at a time.

Moving, teething and so much more!

We have finally made it into our new house! Boxes are still waiting to be unpacked and projects are still needed to be finished but we are here. It was an interesting move as when me and my little guy arrived at our new home with the truck ready to unload we found two guys who have broken into the house because they were here to foreclose on the house. No one for whatever reason had told them that we had purchased the house. So after a few tense moments things were sorted and our stuff was unloaded. Since then it has been a whirlwind. Before we arrived our church had come out in amazing force and painted 95% of the house. My little guy has been enjoying the yard and all the space. To christen our first night sleeping in the house my little guy provided us with a new tooth. I can't wait for the parties and the memories in this house to unfold. I truly feel blessed!
