Another family outing...

Wow, twice in two weekends! That must be some sort of record for our family in recent years!

Not terribly exciting, just another trip to the shopping centre to buy MIL her birthday presents for tomorrow, and see if Santa was set up yet for taking Christmas pics - apparently not until next Saturday...

Had some lunch out, and you could have knocked me over with a feather when Erik and Luey asked for sushi rolls for lunch!!! I honestly didn't believe they'd eat them, and made a point of telling them sushi rolls cost a fair bit more than a happy meal and so I wouldn't be impressed if they turned their noses up at them once they arrived and demanded something else...

They each got a cooked chicken and cucumber one and a raw salmon and avocado one. Erik ate both of his, and Luey ate his salmon one (he loves avocado!) and then was full so Erik ate his other chicken one as well. I waited until they'd finished before telling them they'd eaten raw fish, LOL...

So good to see them choosing something relatively healthy of their own volition!!!

I thought I'd give you all another Tiny hit :)...

Starting to get a bit spotty, but still irresistably cute!


This is why I need a little point and shot camera... Blurry close ups are not a lot of fun - but can you see that my boob is bigger than his head, rofl!!!


Had to dress him up for the Christmas picture, LOL. He doesn't look wholly convinced that being dressed up as a ladybug is WAAAAAY COOOOOOL! Does he? "Mummy, do you PROMISE not to put this in my 21st slideshow???" "Yes, dear, I PROMISE!!!" (XfingersX)


Oh, and FINALLY the tail end of a smile (sorry folks, that's the closest I've come so far to catching one!)

Gosh he looks like Luey in the first pic. Very cute

Yeah, he's Luey's mini-me :). We have a pic on the mantel of Luey as a newborn and we can't get Bryn to understand that it's not a pic of Ari, LOL...

Just as well, though, because Luey has always felt a little like the odd-man-out in our house, because of his golden hair. We're hoping Ari will have some tone of red in his hair - most like Auburn...
