I no! This is NOT fun...

Sorry about the quality of this photo, it was taken with my crappy old Kodak EasyShare, because I still haven't found the time to get the DSLR to the shop, argh! Had to sharpen the photo myself, so that's why it looks grainy and strange...



Anyway, check out what our poor little Buddhi-wa did today. We were at the boys' school, and he was taking a single step down on his own, there was nothing for him to hold onto, but he usually manages just fine, but today he must have been a bit distracted or something and he went down head first!

The Klonk! was so loud that a mum 50 metres away came running because she was sure I was going to need to call and ambulance or something. Luckily, I could offer him booby for comfort or else I think he might have been inconsolable - as it was he was pretty distraught...

Since turning two, Bryn has had another huge language growth. It doesn't feel like he "learning" more new words, so much as he's finally found the confidence to try them out. One phrase he uses a lot is, "This is fun!", other variations are, "That's funny!" and "Erik/Luey/Daddy funny!" - I'm apparently not very funny... Anyway, today I have expected him to come out with, "This is not fun!" Poor little Buddha!

In other news...

Dave and I seem to be getting back on track, relationship wise... It's really amazing was a bit of sex can do, LOL, we're actually being kinder to each other during the day! There is a softness in his voice that I hadn't heard for a while, and he's not complaining as much about life in general! At least it seems that way, I hope I not just seeing what I want to see!

I've caught up on most of studies now, and that's just by not being on the computer for two days! Imagine what I could achieve in weeks of day time computer freeness!

I'm totally hanging out to see Jen's little boy, named Archie, but want to wait till the frey of postbirth visitors dies down a bit. Not wanting to project, but while I REALLY enjoyed having visitors after Bryn's births, I enjoyed the visitors who came when he was 2-3 and more weeks old far more than those who came in the early days when I was still struggling to concentrate on anything but gazing at him, hahaha!

Writing is flowing like blood through my veins atm! Doing a couple of the Writing for Children exercises yesterday really got the juices pumping and it was harder to stop than it was to get started, LOL! Mum is 3000 words into her novel (which is due in about 12 weeks!!! Only 37000 words to go! I'm so excited to get to that stage of this degree! But first I have to complete these units, hahaha!

Oh *snap* on the big bumps and scrapes as you know. It must be the big birthday stuff! Poor Harry couldn't even speak which is, of course, unheard of. And glad to hear a bit of rumpy works well in the non-naked times too. :o)

I don't think you are imagining the softer voice/more kindness, we get that phenomenon around here as well :)

Sif, you're so heady from bathing in a haze of oxytocin that your children could be busily running onto train tracks you you'd be none the wiser, LOL! Poor Bryn, lucky you :)

PS. Cass, sorry to hear Harry is similarly (?) challenged!

Ohhhh... OW! Poor Bryn, that looks like it would have caught even La's attention! X_x I'm a bit shocked Bryn has managed to get a big bruise before La though, he's so much... y'know, saner and all! ;-p :sending lots of virtual icepacks:

And YAYness with the nookie!!! Long may it be a continuing trend! (And result in Disa before long...)

Poor Bryn - luckily little kids heal so quickly!

*So* glad your camera has been fixed - can't wait to see the pix you took today!

Change, and then change back...
