Nudey Rudey in the sunshine.
Her favourite bike.
(It's her brothers but luckily he's progressed to a bigger bike)
Hanging in the park
Catching up with friends (Gaby and Boo)
What happens when you wake up at 5am and wont
go back to sleep? You fall asleep at lunch!

Boo is finally better, a really nasty viral infection with scray high temps. She's still snotty, but I think that's teeth. We are back try (who I am I kidding) I am back trying to night wean
again. I'd only just done it for the 2nd time and she got sick. She's a stubborn wee thing, and I thought we'd got there again, but NO last night she yelled at me for almost 3 hours on and off before I gave up and fed her!
James has a job again, nothing permanent but a few weeks work. Meant he worked all day Saturday so not much happened this weekend. We had planned another excursion, but James is leaving for work at 5am and getting home at 5pm (not that we complain work is work in this current financial climate) so he just wanted a chill day.
The dogs got washed (first time in a VERY long time), trees moved, seeds planted, kids spent the day in the paddling pool. I even have sunburnt legs. I went scouting for some fruit trees with no luck, but hope to find some this week and plant them. It was a lovely one day weekend.How proud can you be of your little man. It appears (much to our pleasure) that we have a little rugby follower in the household! Titans and the All Blacks here! (Both won on the weekendd too!) BLake decided to wear his Titans' Top as pants....he's bit strange at times! LOL...he thought it was the biggest joke.
My little girl is growing up. She's a real character, and really comes into her own on the days her big brother is at daycare...Although she misses him when he's gone, she does enjoy not having to share. She found the potty and wanted a go. No luck, but she enjoys sitting on it. This photo is a bit scary as it makes her look ALOT older than she actually is. But I can't believe she's almost 16 months already.
I also finally turned her car seat around this week. I was getting a bit sick of heaving a 11 kg monster into a rear facing car seat. It's a bit naughty I know, she could still be rear facing for another kg, and it is safer but you know how it is. The things you learn though...we turned Blake around at 6 mths/9 kgs as that was the limit on the seat we had for him. I am SO thankful we never had a crash with him foward facing being that young. Now I know better and we had a better seat for Boo that allowed her to stay rear facing for SO much longer.
Anyway she loves it, and Blake isgetting used to it. He cant see her as easily so I think he prefere her facing the opposite way to him.
I have been wanting a nappy out of this minky floral material for a long time, and got my hands on some fabric a while back (only a nappy cut, so am trying to stretch it), but am not really in a nappy making mode. So a friend (thanks Linda) suggested a skirt. I created the pattern, and am quite happy with the result, it does have a few issues, but they aren't too noticable when its on. Of course it would have been better with an overlocker (all the raw edges are zig-zagged)
And my hat goes off to all those nappy makers who sew with Minky...man its a pain to sew with.
Well that's all for now. I'll be back tomorrow with my weight update!

I thought if I publicised this I might be less likely to stray....
I jumped on the scales this morning and I have 10kg to lose by Christmas (will work out how many weeks that give me later)
So if you want motivation (or you want to give me some, I know I'll need it)...lets get a Blog Weightloss Challenge going...weigh in once a week and lots of encouragement!
I got out for a 30min walk yesterday and I need to do that most days! So will keep you posted on how that goes!

ok..so more of a goal...I was about to put this top up...when James walked in...he loves it, although its been a LONG time since I fit into it...so at his suggestion..this top is my goal. I also love it, and would love to get back into it...so this is my public declaration that I am going to get off my butt and lose weight...I reckon if I can get into it by Christmas I'll be happy....
I think I'll try and use my blog as a bit of motivation too!
