Reiss @ 9 months

I cannot believe that Reiss is now more than 9 months old!  Wow, time is really flying by so fast at the moment.  Everyone is telling me that he is such a "little boy" now - that makes me sad that he is going to be a toddler soon and not my baby baby anymore.

His stats at 9 months are:-
Weight - 10.76 kgs
Height - 75.5cm (he grew 1cm in a month!)
Head circumference - 46cm

He is loving his food and his eating at least 3 meals a day, I am still breastfeeding and feed on demand.
He is pretty mobile, although still not crawling yet (he is starting to get up on all fours at the moment), he rolls himself everywhere, he is starting to roll away from us at the moment and go into his room or our bedroom from the loungeroom.  His smile just melts my heart, he is just adorable!

I am still yet to get a look-in in the talking department - still all bubba and dadda.
Here are some pics:-

Bel's Baby Shower

On Saturday I was very excited to be hosting a baby shower for my good friend Belinda and baby snowflake :-)  I decorated the house in snowflakes and elephants (the theme for their nursery) and pink and blue as they dont know the sex of their baby.  I made cupcakes with pink and blue elephants holding snowflakes - I think they are really cute (Thanks to Nicky for making the blue elephants).

The day was fantastic!  Everyone had a great time, we played some games, had lots of laugh, ate lots of food and snowflake got spoilt.

Here are a few pics from the day:-

We have a teenager in the house now!

Oh my goodness!  I cannot believe that our baby is now 13!!!!  Where has the last 13 years gone ?  Christian has just grown up too fast, well all the boys are growing up too fast really.  Christian is in Year 8, his favourite band is Muse, he loves playing RPG PC Games, playing with his ipod and listening to music, he still loves playing Yu-Gi-Oh (trading card game) and soccer.

Tonight we are having take-away chinese for dinner, chocolate mud cake for desert and then going to watch the latest episode of Survivor :-)  Christian is having his friends over for a sleepover next weekend.

A day at the beach

Friday last week Bel and I took the boys down to the beach.  It was a gorgeous day down there.  The boys had a blast having races up and down the beach, as well as playing around in the water.  Bel and I sat in the beach tent with Reiss.  Reiss seemed to enjoy the beach as well as eating the sand - LOL.  We stayed down there for a couple of hours, we didnt really want to leave :-)

I took some pics (heaps actually) mainly of Reiss but also of Bel and her gorgeous pregnant belly (31w 1d).
I have more photos and layouts to share soon too.

A day at the park

On Good Friday Tanyah and I took the kids to the local park.  It was such a beautiful day to be out and about with the kids.  The weather was just delightful and there was a really nice breeze too :-)  I put Reiss in the swing and he just loved it.

Here are some pics from the day:-

Unfortunately I didnt take any pics of Ethan on this day.

I have more pics to share in the next couple of days and then hopefully some more layouts too :-)

Homemade Pies

Brendan made this delicious beef stew on Friday night and on Tuesday night he made them into little pies - yummo!

Ethan wanted a smiley face on his plate, so Brendan made one for him :-)

Peter Rabbit Reiss

I have to admit that I have a bit of a Peter Rabbit fetish.  I love the books and I also have loved dressing the boys in Peter Rabbit clothing.  I havnt bought any for a few years,  but I still have heaps of the clothing ready to dress Reiss in.  I bought this Peter Rabbit Rabbit suit for Ethan's first Easter in 2004 and I searched high and low for it on the weekend so I could dress Reiss up in it.

I took Reiss up to mum and dads yesterday to put Peter Rabbit in the garden and take some photos.  Here are some of the shots that I took.  

Isnt he just the cutest bunny you have ever seen ?
