{It's all going tooooo FAST}

OMG Sam is 5 months old already I wish it would slow down. He is the most gorgeous adorable little boy you could ask for. SO SO SO happy and did I say cute :o)

Here are some photos I took on friday. That day I also gave him a taste of farex which he mostly spat out but today he actually swallowed most of it. Brie was just eating a banana so I squished some up for Sam I think he liked the taste of it but would squish his eyes up when he swallowed it I wish I had it on video camera it was so cute.

Salts mum brought us some chooks a few weeks ago, so today Salt made them a chook house so we could bring them over to our house. He did a pretty good job just using stuff that was lying around our back back yard. Mia is pretty excited to own the chooks and she has called them Charli, Brooke, Mia, Brie, Ella & Libby. She is now talking about when they will have chickens...... apparently they will lay eggs in a couple of weeks how exciting will that be. They are pretty friendly chooks so I sure Mia will have lots of fun with them. Brie on the other hand isn't too keen on any animal and just screams if they come near her.

A couple of months ago Salt put up this tyre swing for the girls out the front they just love it and have so much fun on it I finally grabbed the camera the other day while waiting for Mia to come home from school. Best toy ever they reckon!

The last few weeks has seen Mia being sick the poor little thing. She has had the vomits, splats & now croup. I hope she gets better soon it is really knocking her about :o(
I haven't been in my scrapbook room for at least 2 weeks I think I am getting withdrawals LMAO I am in an Apron Swap atm with Sonia, Gab & Briony so I am hoping to get it made this week sometime. I have so many things I want to sew but just to find the time. Tonight I saw the most gorgeous fabric baskets on Mel Goodsells Blog I am going to have to go and buy the magazine just so I can make some.
Anyway I am off to feed Sam and go to bed Mia went to bed at 6pm and Brie has just gone.
Goodnight All :o)

{Soccer, Busy Busy and some Scrapping}

Mia played her first game of soccer in Tottenham a few weeks ago, she just loved it. Salt was so proud of her for getting in there and having a go. She wasn't scared at all. It was great. On the weekend we headed back over to Tottenham for her next game of Soccer where she got to be the goally for a quarter. She let one goal in out of a few attempts so that was great. The team made her job pretty easy though as they stopped the ball a couple of times too. Mia got the encouragement award for the game she was pretty impressed about the whole thing. Afterwards we headed out to the Westons for a sleepover. On the way we stopped at the centre of NSW's and took some photos. Salt is such a poser.We had a bbq in the bush the kids loved it especially Denis's chips and toasting marshmallows.

Libby and Sam are missing in this photo.

On the 23rd May we went to Cowra for my brothers 21st. Steven had a great night. It was great to see everyone, Nana and Grandad came over from New Zealand and met Sam so that was pretty special. Only my Aunty Julie and cousin Adam have seen Sam since the day he was born so the rest of my family actually got to meet Sam and give him a cuddle. Here are some photos from the next day.

This is a photo of Nana & Grandad and the grandkids & great grandkids. This is the first time we have all been together in nearly ever.

Naughty Brie thought she would cut her hair last week :o( she has taken a big chunk out of her fringe lets hope it grows soon so we can straighten it up for her. I think she has learnt her lesson cause Mia said that she was going to cut her hair the other day and she said NOOOOO Jody only cuts it!
We have been so busy in the last few weeks which has been great, ( Mia has had speech therapy in Dubbo which went really well. We go back next week for another session.
Sam is growing up way way way too fast :o Sam is such a happy baby as soon as you speak to him he gives you the biggest grin and talk..... lots and lots of baby talking I just love it. This week he has started holding his head up really well when you put him on his tummy, He has started arching his back so you pick him up. He has started rolling toward his side as well so I am sure it won't be long until he can roll over. I think I will have to get his jolly jumper out soon. He loves it when his Dad comes home he always give Daddy a big smile which I sure just melts Salty heart. Salt said the other day do you think he will love going out to the bush with me when he is bigger. Well if he is anything like his sisters he will. He has also discovered his hands and is starting to hang onto things. We just love him so much he is such a beautiful little boy I think he is going to be a bit of a joker like his Dad cause he is so cheeky already. He just loves the kisses and cuddle I give him I always get a grin when I give him lots of kisses on his cheeks. The other morning I was feeding him and Mia came out well he stopped feeding and looked at her as if to say well come on talk to me!
And just a little bit of scrapping from me........not much happening in the scrapping dept but I have got some new goodies coming from the forever always shop so lets hope it brings some mojo with it :o)
