It's been a while...


Since I have blogged here. I have been busy, but aren't we all? Lots of stuff has happened over the last 3 or so weeks.


Amy got her first tooth. Well, her first two teeth. Once that first one came through, the next one just popped up right next to it. Now the food fun begins! She had her first sausage last night. A little chipolata one which she thoroughly enjoyed.



Amy also turned 10 months old. I can't believe it. She is growing up so fast. It's kind of sad to think that as our last baby we wont have this 'baby' period in our lives again, so we are savouring every moment. At ten months Amy has learnt to crawl - fast! She eats heaps! She has a sandwich, jar of custard and a banana for lunch, which is more than what I eat! She can feed herself her own bottles and does so with her first morning bottle. Amy waves 'bye' and loves music and likes to dance. She spins her arms from side to side when she is dancing and sometimes topples over because she is getting into it so much. She loves the backyard. She squeals for the cat but not for the dog, not sure why, the cat pays her no mind where the dog can't get enough of her. She has learnt a new trick...



Yes, she has learnt to stand up. She is too little if you ask me! (Read: I don't want my baby to grow up just yet!) She even started cruising. When Kate and Luke are in the bath, Amy loves to stand there and squeal at them and you really know she wants to get in. Yep, she really is growing up far too fast for my liking.



All the while, Steve has been doing up our backyard. We are now the proud owners of a vege patch, sandpit and a garden (without plants as we haven't decided on them yet!). Steve has really outdone himself. He has made them look great and has put so much work and effort into each project. So far we have carrots, lettuce, broccoli, beetroot, beans and tomatoes planted. I can't wait till our first harvest! We still have a couple of more beds to put some more plants in though which we will probably do during the week sometime when we decide which ones.



Just this friday last gone, Luke had his sports carnival at preschool. Luke had a great time. They had a running race and then an obstacle course they had to complete. I took lots of video and photos, but here is my favourite photo, and also there are no other kids in it! LOL!



I had Luke's parent-teacher meeting a couple of weeks ago. Seems he is ready for school next year. I am very happy about that. I was a bit unsure as to whether he would be ready or not, but he has shocked the socks off me with how quickly he has picked things up, like numbers and letters and sums and words. Not only that, his speech therapy is also going really well. At the moment we have moved away from the sounds and are concentrating on grammar. I still have to keep an eye on other sounds like 'dr' as in drink because sometimes it comes out as 'gr'. He is growing by leaps and bounds. I was looking at some photos of him from a year ago, and I can't believe how much he has changed. He still is the cutest thing ever though.


I have also been scrapping. One I cannot share as it is going into Lusi's Top 10 feature in Scrapbook Creations, but I have 3 I can share from the newsletter for The Scrapbook Establishment.


I got to work with Kaisercraft Skull Boi paper and rhinestones. I added some Kaisercraft fozz felt and rubons to my layouts aswell.





Well, that's about it from me today. I better go and get dinner organised and then I have to start a DT layout for Apple Blossom Studio. I seriously just want to use their stamps on everything!


Oh, and I also have to do some of my pages for my art journal. If you want to join in and do some of the art journal topics, Mary is offering a Xyron 150 over at The Scrapbook Establishment for participants. Check out the forum for details!


Cheers and a heartfelt thanks for all those people who stop by and who have been kind enough to email me and support me. You have no idea how much that had bouyed my spirits. Thankyou.
