Isaac has always been a real water baby..nothing has changed! (if you want to see a pic from last year, the huggies site is using a shot of Isaac on the promotions page for this years little swimmers competition...very proud Mummy here!) He has loved these hot days when he can get out and splash around in a few cm of water in his little pool. Thankfully we have enough rain water to let him play with some...it all ends up on the thirsty lawn anyway! We have also been for a few swims in SIL pool, and a trip to the beach.
So I have done a little christmas preparation. Ive designed my Christmas cards and had them printed...now just have to get them in the post LOL Im amazed that Caleb actually co-operated and put the Christmas hat on for the photo - sure that wont happen for many more years with out some serious bribery !
Finally a couple of belly shots. My 18 week shot is on this LO....
and this is 24 weeks
Im due to get Nathan to take some 28 week shots in the next couple of days, so I will share some more then. Ive definately popped out more since this one was taken. Everything is going well with the pregnancy. Seems to be lots of pregnant people around atm...Ive got a few friends expecting. One of them (Craigs cousin Angie...Isaacs god mother) is due only a couple of days after me, so thats exciting. It was wonderful to catch up with her and her family last weekend while they were holidaying in Adelaide. Belly rubs to all those other gorgeous and precious little bundles still in thier Mummies tummies!

He was spoilt with lots of gorgeous pressies. Bob DVDs, a scrambler toy (from bob the builder) a bob tool belt (are you seeing a pattern here LOL..he loves Bob atm), a little digger toy, and a little tykes rocking horse. We gave him one of his pressies yesterday - a new bike. He has to wait till Monday to get the other bits and pieces weve got for him. Nothing like spreading your birthday out for days!
Thank goodness we decided to have his party yesterday instead of today. Its going to be 37 today. Needless to say we are going to visit SIL for a dip in the pool this afternoon.

Its been years since I updated my trusty old mobile, now I have this flash little phone. It will probably take me years to work out how to use it LOL
More excitingly (is that a word?) I have one of these to play with too.
My friend has updated to the latest 400D and Im having a play to decide if I want to buy this one off her....like Im going to give it back!!!!! Complete with camera bag, filters, 18-55mm lens and a 90-300mm zoom lens. Im lovin' it LOL although Ive only used the auto settings....manual will take me the rest of my life to master I think!
Yippeeeeeeee the kids go back to school tomorrow!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Ive got my cousin and her two kids arriving for a week today. So excited to see them! I havnt even met baby (8mnths) Coops yet. It will be nice to have some adult company. I best get and finish off the housework before they arrive.

Now we are back to regular programming, I got most of my housework done this morning and then scrapped again while Isaac slept. I had these papers out from yesterday...more photos from the other day as well...same colours, so I decided to use the stuff Id pulled out and not used on the spring LO! Much brighter....no kraft....no flowers (although I was tempted to use one right where the little circle of brads and star is!) Quick and simple, just 1 1/2 hours. Im terrible for placing things on the page and not wanting to stick them down, so today the challenge was to stick it all down as I went, and just keep adding to it. The most time consuming bit was painting the chipboard letters...I hate waiting for paint to dry! Lots of Junkitz & Scenic Route frm my EDM prize, which Ive hardly put a dent in yet! I even cleaned my desk up again after I finished - I honestly dont know how I get in such a mess!
The kids have their school variety night tonight. Each class does a small preformance. The boys seem quite excited about it....Im trying LOL

Dont you just love these gorgeous warm days we are starting to get. Its still freezing here at night, but we have had a few beautiful warm days.....ah what bliss, outside with the warmth of the sun....can you tell I quite enjoy spring. I dont like feeling hot, and I dont like feeling cold, so spring and autumn tend to suit me just fine!
We had a lovely BBQ for Fathers Day on Sunday with Craigs family. I saw my Dad Saturday cause he was working on Sunday :(

On the scrapping front I still have my awards for excellence entry sitting on my desk. Im a shocker for getting things posted off. I still have to do the materials lists etc before it can go. If it gets there, it gets there!!!!! Thank goodness for express post, at least i have another couple days to decide.Since I last posted there is lots of exciting news around! Big congrats to Steph who welcomed a little baby girl into the world, to Kate who announced she is expecting twins, and to Isaacs God mother Ange who is expecting her third just after me...babies everywhere!!!! Just as well a girl is already pregnant or Id be feling really clucky by now LOL
Well forgive me for being so slack with your monthly letters, but just as you turned 19 months Mummy and Daddy got a huge suprise when we found out you were going to become a big brother. Mummy has been grappling with bouts of morning sickness (more like all day sickness) and feeling guilty about how much quality time Im not spending with you. It seems like Ive spent the last few months laying on the lounge, grumpy and feeling sick. It should get better soon little man!!!
We spent a week at the beach during the school holidays, it was lovely to get away as a family. Lots of walks on the beach, a trip to greenhills adventure park...you loved it all. You even slept in a big bed (with a saftey rail). The last few months have seen you develop quite a personality. You are extremely stubborn and like everything your own way. Unfortunately this is causing quite a bit of grief!!!! Your spoken language is still very limited, and so you have taken to squealing....loudly!!!!! Its driving us all crazy. You also have started grabbing a toy and bashing it on the coffee table when you get angry. I know a lot of it is frustration at not being able to talk much, but hat doesnt make it any easier to deal with , especially while mummy is feeling so ordinary.
On the flip side you can be the most loving little thing. You give us lots of cuddles and cute little kisses. You love to be right in the middle of what ever is going on. When daddy is around you are a real daddys boy....a good thing considering you wont be the absolute centre of attention for that much longer. You laugh uncontrolably, your are really ticklish and you frown at us all the time..its so cute!!!!!!
You arnt the most sociable little boy. you love being around older children, but around kids your own age you tend to pull hair and grab faces - not a good way to make friends!!!!! The only one you havnt tried this on is Jamie - lucky Jamie!!!! I know we should get out more to playgroup or visiting other little kids your age, but playgroups are always at your sleep times, which doesnt make for a fun outing, and I just dont seem to have the energy to get out and about at the moment.
The other day you managed the words "mumma baby" while we were looking at the ultrasound pictures of our new little one. It melted Mummys heart.
I love you my little man....to the moon and back!!!!
