You know, I used to think I had a handle on it. But boy oh boy, six kids are hard to keep track of :) So, the end of this year, Christmas included was crazily unorganised for me. But hey, it all got done in the end.
November was Lukas 3rd birthday. I suppose the fact he doestnt cry at Happy Birthday means he is growing up. Obsessed with Toy story and Ben 10, I think he liked his birthday present….
Or maybe not…
( just kidding. Thats the ‘angry face’. He loved his police car)
We started December with school concerts in the church hall, end of year break-ups, and another disappointing raffle (19 prizes and we didnt win one!!!)
I continued to dress Eden in all things pink and frilly.
And she retaliated by learning to crawl (just in time to destroy the Christmas tree- which by the way is BLACK oooh new tree and I loved it!!)
Hey, shes learning! And…..
Whats that you can see (apart from the ‘thats enough photos’ face?)
Yep, its teeth! Two teeny tiny perfect pearly white baby teeth.
* so, while I am here, and also, posting her birth story soon ( she will be one in just a few weeks!) a health update.
Eden is finally caught up on her immunizations (she was delayed because of a chest infection when she was due for her 4 month needles) She is just over 16 pounds, which is low (off the scale my tiny monkey!) but steadily gaining. The doctor is referring us to a paediatrician at her next visit (12 months) just to check out her weight and development.
Eden also sees a physiotherapist every 6 weeks, she is doing well, reaching all her milestones (she only had trouble with rolling) and she has another appointment in two weeks.
She also sees the hospital doctors once a year until she is 5, she has another appointment in February.*
And then, Christmas! An all time grand total of 19 people fed! And about 1200 photos haha. Edens first Christmas. The kids all were spoilt rotten again, and Luka terrified of Santa, but all in all it was a great day, spent with family and friends, surrounded by children, and a ute load of rubbish!
So, late as usual, but
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year
love from everyone at Chapman Crazyhouse xxx
