1 week countdown and a swim.
Amy is one next tuesday. Where on earth has this last year gone? I don't know. Well, here is the big girl with 1 week to go until her 1st birthday.
She has another tooth, which now totals 4 teeth. She is still cruising about the furniture and is getting braver because the gaps are getting bigger that she goes between.
On the weekend, the kids had a swim in next door's pool. They had a great time and Kate and Luke are getting so confident in the water! This was Amy's first swim. She enjoyed it and had a bit of a hissy fit when she was taken out.
I was supposed to go out to Spotlight today to get the kids some stuff for their Halloween costumes, Luke wants to be a ghost and Kate wants to be a cat. Both are going to be quite easy costumes to make, so it's ok if I procrastinate a little. I have had a interesting day and all I have to say is I feel quite lighter within myself. I feel great! Thanks Lus!
Well, that's about it from me today.
Cheers and TFSB! :D

A DT layout and a zoo trip.
I have had these photos developed for ages and I never knew how I should go about scrapping them. I saw Julie had done a layout and titled it Pit Crew Boss and I knew the theme was perfect! I am pretty bad with titles! Sometimes I would prefer not to have them at all, but they do serve a design purpose. This layout came together quite quickly and I used 3 different Apple Blossom Studio Stamps. I went with a circle theme because of the whole car has wheels thing. Anyway, this is what I ended up with:
On the weekend we went to Taronga Zoo. The new Underwater Encounters exhibit is pretty cool, but nothing can beat this:
Isn't that photo special? Totally. Love it.
And the token kids photo:
And before anyone asks, no, as a scrapbooker I did not put my children on the elephant statue for a photo opportunity! They saw everyone else doing it and wanted a photo on it! But as a scrapbooker, I am overjoyed! ;)
TFSB! Cheers! :)

Check out The Scrapbook Establishment's Cybercrop!
Plenty of fun and 5 scrapping challenges to be done!
My duty this CC was to create a game. So I decided to take snippets of images from the shop and the challenge is to work out which products they are.

A sketch and some scones.
The October sketch challenge is up at The Scrapbook Establishment and I created the sketch! It was very exciting to do and I think it could be quite addictive to create them! (I guess, just ask Becky Higgins! LOL!) You can either create a layout or a card and you then go into the draw to win a $10 gift voucher.
This is the sketch:
And this is my layout:
and some details:
On wednesday we went to Mamre Homestead to have a morning tea of scones. The scones were the best I have ever tasted! The kids were not so adventurous and decided to have muffins instead. Needless to say when I gave them a bite of my scone, they wanted to swap!
And finally, a half decent photo of all three kids! YAY!
Now, some things I have to remember about Amy's 11th month.
Amy stands all the time and has started cruising along the furniture.
Today she was pushing along a stool and taking steps behind it.
She loves music and will crawl at a rate of knots when you turn the music on to be near the tv or stereo.
She dances by swinging her arms from side to side and sometimes overbalances and topples over. She even gets her head in on the action.
She loves going outside and will make a break for it whenever she sees the opportunity. The other day she pulled a leaf of one of the lettuces we are growing and ate it. LOL.
She takes three dummies to bed, one for her mouth and one for each hand. The only time she has a dummy is to go to sleep, otherwise she doesn't like to have it in her mouth.
She sleeps for about 11 hours during the night. Will have one big morning sleep and a shorter sleep in the afternoon.
She started saying "bah" on wednesday to indicate the bath. So, I guess that is her first real word?
She loves to wave and will do it randomly to you during the day.
Amy now has three teeth as she has one up the top too.
She is the cutest thing ever and we are so blessed to have her.
