Hmmm - an older post from about a month ago

Ryan is obsessed with his mouth - like all 3.5 month old babies - he's either got his dummy, his hand, whatever toy I put into his hand shoved into his mouth. There is always drool and slobber everywhere. So tonight I was giving him a bath which is a very cute process - fist in mouth the whole time. He changed the position of his hand and put three fingers in... there was a noise "ack" and then he vomited. So have decided he's a bit bulimic.

Tomorrow is the start of creche. I'm a little nervous. He's still so tiny, the other kids in his room are all mobile, he can't even sit up yet. He won't drink from a bottle, only me! But my house sure needs a good tidy. So I'm hoping to do it on Thursdays when he's in creche.

Life is cruising along nicely at the moment. Mark is at school and its going well. Jamie is coping with work, and his business is growing nicely. He is still extremely busy and that is quite annoying, but its the way he likes his life. Ryan and I are having a good time at home. We're getting busier as we have Mother's Group now. We try to have one outing each day. I'm learning his "cues" and trying to get him to bed before it becomes problematic. Feeding is currently a HUGE issue. He is refusing a bottle. Luckily it is not imperative he have a bottle (except for when I go out and Jamie can't feed him), but we're all getting a little stressed about it. We'll keep trying.

This is part one of my series ... the three bears. There is a photo of me with two teddies when I'm in the nude (yes I'm just a baby at the time), I've got the same photo of Mark in the nude with two teddies. Just need to strip the bub off and get another bear. This Roger, the bear that Mark chose for him when he was only about half way grown. Very cute and soft bear. Ryan hasn't met this bear before, hence looks a little nervous.

This is a very common face that Ryan pulls. Not really sure why... but the "bug eye" face makes us all laugh.

Finally, this is me with my two sons. We had a half day trip to Karuah so Jamie could get some spare parts for his Commodore. Instead of watching him pull a car apart, the kids and I stayed in town. Karuah is so sad, they put a bypass in and now the town is almost dead. We had a snack at the bakery and then went town to the Myall River which runs through the town and has a little walk along the paths until it started raining. It did have a beautiful park and Mark had a play whilst Ryan had his lunch. Two boys on BMXs rode by several times whilst we were feeding, I think they wanted to catch an eyeful of my boobs... how exciting.

Things I love

Link1. Dummies - its not very PC, parents that are cool have kids who don't use dummies (I was one with Mark, smugly saying, "he doesn't need a dummy"). Sadly not so for #2. He, and his parents have a total dummy addiction. I think its so cute when Ryan is snoozing and then he cries out... he's lost the dummy and all we need to do is pop it back in and he's back asleep. Totally fallen in love with his "dummy catcher", much cuter than the NUK ones a the supermarket, but totally necessary.

2. Cupcakes - yes still in love with making cupcakes. Made some delicious strawberry ones last week with fresh strawberries. AND I forgot to take a picture of them, sorry. My lovely friend Rebecca bought me a cupcake carrier. It holds 24 cakes in two tiers and is amazing. Her only criteria for giving it to me... that I bake for her sometimes.

3. Quilts - I want to learn to quilt. Need to take a class. I feel I would be good at quilting.

What are you watching?

As a lot of people already know, I love my telly. Just a little too addicted, but at the moment, I don't really care. So this is what I'm watching....

1. UNDERBELLY: The first series. I just started again today. I think its a brilliant series, I really don't want to think of it as a true story (but it is), as its SO violent.

2. THE BIG BANG THEORY: I love the nerdiness of it, Sheldon is my hero. He comes up with the best one liners. Always had a crush on Johnny Galecki, from my Roseanne days

3. WINTER OLYMPICS: I totally loved the Vancouver Olympics. I loved the skating, skiing, snowboarding, luge, skeleton and the bobsled. I even watched the hockey but I really don't like figure skating. Totally adored Johnny Weir and how he flirted with Leila on Channel 9... adorable. Thought Sean White was very cool - but didn't hear him speak.

4. HOW I MET YOUR MOTHER: Just seriously cool. Doogie Houser all grown up.
