Marvellous boy!!!

If there was ANY doubt about Bryn's genius status, let me put it to rest now...

WARNING: the following anecdote contains descriptions of feeding a toddler commercial FAST FOOD, and may offend some readers...

Today after buying the plane tickets to go visit my parents in Adelaide next month (YAYAYAYAY!), Bryn and I went and had a celebratory lunch! I decided, because they serve poptops with their kids meals, to go to Red Rooster (ok, it was really because I LOVE their Flayvor meal)...

So, Buddha got three chicken nuggests and some far too salty chips. His meal was VERY hot when we sat down and he tentatively bit into a nugget, but recoiled from the heat and put it down. A minute later, he tried it again, but it was still too hot. Then he took the nuggest and broke it in half, peeling away a bit of the batter and eating that. At first I didn't think much of it...

Next, having not eaten any more of the first nugget, he takes the second nugget and breaks that in half as well and …

The bittersweet of turning six...

Well, after a surreal night of constant waking to seeing if Leah had sms'd me, Dave and I woke with the alarm just after 6am this morning, which was not a great departure from how our day started six years ago when we were headed off to the hospital to have my waters broken to encourage Luey out into this world (he didn't take much encouraging, after 15 minutes of no actions, then 1 hour and 15 minutes of painless contraction, then transition and 30 minutes of painful contractions, came out like a ball out of a canon...

Last night I was waiting to hear the news that Kate had finally met her baby, and she did! At two am, Baby B (no first name as yet) made his grand entrance into the world at an impressive 10lb and 2oz!

After cereal Luey was ready to attack his presents (cereal went half uneaten, truth be told)...

From Bryn he got a Luey Blue soccer ball!

From Erik the red he got a footy!

From us he got the safety gear Dave insisted upon, and the skateboard Dave swore on his life ou…

More babies at the museum...

I'm REALLY happy with this one...

















Isn't that just the cutest BIG smile!!!





Three of my favourite things...

Took some pics yesterday when I picked the boys up from sports clinic after school...

This is Bryn playing with a gate of a house down the street from us, he loves this gate... In this shot he's on the property to which the gate is leading, LOL... He's not shy, that's for sure...

Bryn is LOVING scrunching through the leaves that are blown into heaps by the side of the footpath... He'll walk back and forth through a pile a number of times to satisfy his desire to feel the inertia created by the leaves and the sound of them crackling under his feet... His favourite place is a natural strip under a Maple tree near the boys school where the leave are so deep he's wading up to his knees in them!

One of the houses on the way to the bus stop has a mini Japanese inspired rock garden right out in front, and Bryn loves the feeling of the little rocks falling through his fingers...

He'll routinely pick up several handfuls and just watch them as they drop out of his hands.…
