No Rest for the Wicked..

Well, it's pretty much all systems go these days. Van is a busy 3 and a bit yr old and it seems there just aren't enough hours in the day for him to be doing something!! Phew.. Contrary to the title - our neighbour Julie did take him out for us this afternoon for a couple of hours, so we can't complain. It was lovely and quiet!!
Kai is doing well.. Still pretty young (10 weeks) -so his time is mostly spent feeding and sleeping and all the other things in between.. Not a very complicated existence.. I like it!! He's sleeping well and doing fine.. Here are some photos!!
Big smiles!!
A little snack before action!
Running...

Sliding..


Swinging...


Kai's hair off to the side..

This photo was taken last week.. Check out the hair!!

Cooling off.....

It's warming up in Darwin at the moment. It's not quite stinking hot, but warm enough to already be looking forward to the pool!!! Here are some snaps of Aunty Sam and the boys.....

It's not quite warm enough to put Kai in the water yet. As you can see he was pretty excited by it all!!


Sam and Van..

Sunday Arvo....

As usual, we spent Sunday afternoon in our backyard.... Not bad eh? Oh yeah, and we finally bought a new camera (higher definition), so we went a little crazy playing with it.
Never had a panarama setting before!
Every kids friend down the beach.
Awkward family photo?

Aunty Sam Visit

My sister Sam is visiting us at the moment. Up for a week to see the baby and Vance (and us while she's at it). Just been relaxing, watching DVDs, the usual foreshore afternoons, and the Cool Spot for the best chips and gravy. Here are some happy snaps:


Kai, Sam & Vance


Kai chillaxin'



Me after a couple of beers and Kai's preferred position to fall asleep in.



The left arm always drops down when he's about to fall asleep.

"He walked into a door..."

Well, all of us have heard the phrase "I walked into a door" and known it to be something else.. BUT, last night in the middle of feeding Kai, Van got up and - walked into a door.... After a good cry, he went to bed with Vince. Kai went to sleep and so did I. In the morning I looked in on Van and saw his face!! Oh my! You can actually see the line of the door. I've taken some photos, but it actually looks worse in real life... He's got Kindy this morning and I wonder how they are going to take to the reason why he looks so battered?.... Gotta love feeling guilty about everything when you're a parent....

Looking pretty thuggish.

More demure..

It's okay - he's not too bad!!

Wedding (Disposable)


Just got some photos from our wedding back today (no, they didn't take that long to develop - we haven't had a chance to do it!). They're the best of the photos from the disposable cameras that were sitting on each table for guests to snap away with. Click on the picture above to see the full album.

More smiles...

I'll post a couple of vids if all goes to plan.. I'm trying to get Kai doing his big open mouthed smiles and laughs but don't seem to be having any luck.. Oh well, here are a few cute vids anyway..
