My little buddly-woo...




Isn't he a doll??? This is what I get to look at all day, while I'm feeding him. I wish I could freese time, sometimes...

I've been shopping for him, he's going to be one cool little dude this summer!

I've had to do most of my shopping online though, because I just can't find stuff in the shops that I like for him. Today a package arrived with two pair of Baby Paws in it that I ordered last week some time. By ordering them directly off the site, I got to choose the style and the colour. So I chose a pair of Jade green Wrap-Ovas (sic), and blue sandals. They're sooooo soft and gorgeous, and now that he is cruising the furniture (how did that happen so suddenly???!), he is so much safer wearing these because he really doesn't slip.

I've NEVER seen any store stocking these shoes in these colours, so I'm wondering if the manufacturers were there last week going, FINALLY! Someone ordered jade green suede (and we thought that would never be sold!

I'm really relishing Bryn! I find myself wishing I could just freeze time.

I've been trying to remember if I "got into" the other two boys in this way. I have vague memories of being this emotionally involved with Erik. With Luey though I think I was sooo depressed for the first year of his life. I remember how beautiful I thought Luey was, and as a toddler he was soooo cute - Dave and I used to go on and on about it (he still is cute, says the funniest things0...


I really would love another baby, but then again when I think forward in time to when the boys are older, I can really see us as we are now, just the five of us, and it will be great, but still I can't quite let go of the hope that Dave will wake up one day and feel the deep need for "just one more" (Hey, I just heard the faint flapping of pigs wing!)... Hahahaha!

He's such a gorgeous boy :)Love the baby paws, i had those for Liam, but couldn't find them anywhere for Sienna :( I didnt want to order online, which as it turns out was a good decision, seeing as her feet are so big lol. LOL at "faint flapping of pigs wings" You never know though-I've heard pigs do fly sometimes, and indeed have been known to do it even backwards and upside down ;-)

I love my made to order baby paws in lime green leather but wow how gorgeous does the jade suede look on Bryn? We have the rap ova style too. I love how easy they are to get on. And yes that is one bewdiful face to look at all day :) One of the best things about breastfeeding is baby gazing...

Hahaha, Rae, clothing twins indeed! I'll definitely be ordering more paws as he gets older, it's just a shame them only go up to size 6, they're far more reasonably priced than Robeez!
Rae said…
Yeah it is a pity, we're on the size 6 now. :( I love the freedom to make up your own colour combination too. Although with freedom comes procrastination! Our last order took me, no kidding, three hours to decide on a colour.. Oh dear. I was having visions of a closet full of rainbow shoes. LOL

12 Things Happy People Do Differently - a self-reflection...

A few days ago a Facebook friend posted the above poster on her wall. I believe she got these points from this blog which she enjoys reading, and the bloggers on the Marc and Angel Hack Life blog derived their discussion of these points from this book, available on Amazon - you're welcome! I have to admit, I haven't read the blog or the book I've just mentioned but wanted my readers to have access to the sources of the poster for their own reflective purposes.
The New Year will be upon us in but a few days and I thought this a great opportunity to do a little personal assessment on how I'm playing the happy game. I'm often not very happy at all - I don't need to be happy all the time, let me just say that up front - I personally believe that life is a balancing act and those who seek euphoria often will also often feel desolation because in all things there must be balance. The great riches of the few on this planet come at the personal cost of the many as is …

The symbolism of elephants...

Just recently I've been seeing and noticing elephants everywhere!

A few weeks ago I saw the Samsung Elephant Ad, and watching that led me to watching a video with an elephant painting (seriously, you have to watch it to believe it!).

Then last night the boys told me they were having a free dress day at school to raise money for 'Mali the Elephant' - who turned out to be a paper maché statue which the children will paint and then show around the council before it comes back to the school to stand outside the performing arts room.

Then this morning I followed a link from Twitter to Toushka Lee's blog and read this post about an elephant orphanage in Sri Lanka.

This morning the Grumpy Old Man did another driving test and unfortunately didn't pass. We've booked his next test and are looking forward to that now. About ten minutes before he walked in the door I saw this poster on Facebook...


At the time, I didn't know if the Grumpy Old Man had been successful or …

Alone... And Stuff...

Do you ever just need to be alone?



As the boys are growing up, we have more times when the house is quiet. The youngest will be asleep. One will be reading, one will be playing on his computer with headphones on, one will be painting and there is stillness.

Sometimes, even that is not enough.

Sometimes I crave being alone, with no possibility of someone suddenly realising they have to tell me something important or ask me a question or even just crash about in the kitchen.

Sometimes I crave S P A C E, lots and lots of space, being able to walk from room to room without encountering another soul.

This is how I felt when I woke up this morning, so instead of getting ready for work, I decided to stay home. Get up, but not go anywhere, no hear the sound of my own voice, or anyone else's.

I think this might just be part of getting older. After a lifetime of chasing after other people and trying not to be alone, my mind and body is full of thoughts, experiences, feelings, and busy-ness …
