Update on the family

Little Miss just recently had her 5th birthday and has started big school. She absolutely loves it :) She loves coming home telling me about all the new friends she has made, and count how many she has :) She received a merit award the other day for 'always following the school rules' Awwww we're so proud :) :)

Mr 3.5 seems to have grown up a bit since Little Miss has started school. It didn't take him long to realise  (or should I say *think*) he's the boss when Little Miss is at school. He's such a great help, and loves to prove ''He's a big boy now" :) Oh yeh, On New Years Day he decided to potty train himself, and the past week has been nappy free at night and with only one accident on the 2nd night :) :) The poor feller decided to take on the TV unit only to come out second best and end up with 3 stitches. He had them removed yesterday my big brave boy :)

Mr 2 is our loveable little terror. He has recently started preschool one day a week. Normally we'd prefer to hold out until the kids are closer to 3, but this child was an exception. He needs it. He's starting to show interest in the potty, and lets us know when he has dirtied his nappy, but isn't quite ready. He's such a stress head and such a clown. He's a crack up :)

Bub is now 6 months old and has had a bit of a rough start to life. Nothing major thankfully, but still not nice seeing him sick or in pain :( When he was little he had such a bad time with pain in the bowels, thankfully that has now eased. When he was 4 months old, he came down with this virus which we thought was either croup or whooping cough (to this day we still don't know). He had the symptoms of each. The Dr put him on antibiotics to cover both illnesses. This lasted a month :( He finally got better only to come down with it again last week. It doesn't seem as vicious this time thankfully, but both times he got sick when he was due for his needles. He's still booby fed and has a bottle or two of formula a day if we're busy or out.

As for hubby and I, we're happily chugging along with the ups and downs of our crazy life :)

Still here

I've been VERY MIA the past few months, with the new bub (now 6 months old :)), sick kids, Christmas/New year, Birthdays and getting little Miss off to school, hubby and I haven't had much down time. I'm hoping now that things are starting to settle down a bit, we'll have some time to do some of the things we enjoy :)
