More to share

Its been a while since I posted. Ive turned another year older in that time!!!! Happy Birthday also to Mel and Katie who have both had birthdays, and a HUGE Happy Birthday to my best friend Sabine, who officially is old again today LOL!!!! (Our birthdays are only a couple of weeks apart, but because she is a year older than me, we are the same age for those few weeks)
Ive been scrapping a bit. Here is a new one from the other week. "that scrapbook thing is exactly right" were Calebs words when he checked it out!

Not often a managed to snap a decent photo of him either - well decent except for all that mop of hair (which he loves) Im hoping he will have it all chopped off during the holidays - fingers crossed!!!

Ive also got this LO in the latest SM. It was a tinkering ink product challenge.

22 months

Goodness me little man, its only eight weeks until you turn two years old! Im really not ready for that!

This month has finally seen your spoken language skills developing. You will have a go at repeating nearly everything, and are trying to say a lot more words all the time. You wander around the house all day..."Muuuuummy, Muuuuummy, Muuuumy" - so cute, well at least it was for a couple of days, its starting to wear a bit thin now though! "Go away" was really one of the first things you said clearly, NO!, digdig (the diggers across the road atm) your own little version of grandma which sounds a bit like gama and which she just loves, "car", "juice", "ou sigh" (outside - your favourite place), "Daddy", "nana" (banana), "bo bo" (botbot/bottle) are just a few of the words we are hearing all the time. oohhh I nearly forgot you can also say "baby". When I ask wheres mummys baby, you point to your tummy and say baby, and you love to plant big kisses on mummys tummy and say oohhh baby - very cute. Im not so sure that you will be quite as excited once this baby arrives, and your position as the youngest and the total centre of attention is gone.

We have also caught up with your great nanna Green a couple of times in the past few months. She adores you as you always have big smiles for her, and are happy to sit on her lap and have a cuddle. You are so blessed to have three of your great grand parents still in your life, and even luckier that two of them are quite close by.

Its always fun to watch you playing with toys. Sometimes I find you playing with YOUR toys, you know the ones that are age appropriate, its so nice to see you sitting there, stacking and posting, and manipulating the parts of your many toys. You do love those that make noises and play music, and you know where the on/off switches are on them all too!!!! You love to turn the music on and dance away, or put your 'bob' hat on and get me to sing the bon the builder song while you dance. Most of the time I find you with a spider man toy, or a transformer, or the boys little lego blocks. I know you want to be just like your big brothers, in fact I think that you see yourself as just like them already, but there is so much time for that, so many years of a boys life filled with super heroes and action figures...lets just enjoy the delights of being a little boy for a while longer, that stage is so much more fleeting and everyday of it needs to be savoured.

By far your favourite place to be is outside. The days are getting longer, and the sun is getting that gorgeous spring warmth during the day. You are so happy pottering around in the yard. Riding your little bike, pretending to water the pots with the big watering can, pushing your trucks around the yard or digging in the sandpit.

You are starting to take a lot more intrerest in books as well. Your favourites are full of animals, or things with wheels. The one you enjoy most though is a story called 'theres a house inside my mummy'. Of course its all about a little boy whos Mummy is pregnant and then has a baby - a little brother - perhaps its an omen that we are going to be blessed with yet another little boy!
My gorgeous little Isaac, I love you - heaps!!!!
Mummy xxxx

back in the swing of things

Its nice to be feeling good again. I missed blogging regularly, I missed scrapping regularly, I missed feeling like having fun with the kids, and believe it or not I even missed housework (well that was a VERY temporary feeling LOL). Morning sickness sucks!
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 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

I scrapped again!!!

Yippee, I think my mojo has returned....and the morning sickness seems to have nearly gone...might have something to do with each other I suspect. I woke up this morning and had that itch to scrap, so I did!!! I seem to have a bit of a thing for kraft c/s....I know Im a little behnd the times from when it was the trendy thing to use, but I like it now and thats what me anyway LOL. and yes that is a VERY old autumn leaves stitched rub on dragonfly....I used it on a piece of acetate, and then added kindy glitz to the top. (For my reference when I cant rememebr for the life of me what products I used on here - MME Bohemia clear frame & Magnolia PP; HS flower; AL stitched rub on; SEI tab; ricrac; buttons; date stamp)

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 :(
