Wow, I can't believe your bubbas are walking already.. Claire is still just trying to work out how to get onto her knees to crawl.. She gives up after landing sprawled a few times and then just continues to crawl her way.. She still looks very much like a baby with no teeth or hair but does like to stand if we hold onto her hands, pulls herself up too, not so keen on holding onto the furniture though.. I think once she's figured out how to crawl on her hands and knees she'll work out how to pull herself up on her own.
Claire's talking, started saying bub-bub-bub awhile ago then yea-yea-yea, Abby is a-a-a and now mum-mum-mum DH is trying desparately to get her to say dad-dad-dad but it just hasn't happened yet smile
I'm having few probs feeding her now as she's so distracted and just pulls on and off constantly.. Her teeth could be coming (PLEASE PLEASE PLEASE) but still eats like a trooper. She loves grabbing chunks of fruit and devouring them now..
We are going to have a joint party for the girls birthday either the 6th or 7th of june but it depends on what my SIL's have arranged for my FIL's birthday which is on the 4th.. We might end up having it on the 30th of May it all depends.. One of my SIL's is getting married next year on the 12th June which means we will be competing the week before with the wedding preperations and costs. I don't know when we can have the party next year because May/June is really busy for the whole family, DH's b'day is 21st, we go to Esk for the show the same weekend, then claire's b'day, FIL's b'day, Abby's b'day so I guess this is just another event to squeeze in, better start saving..
We aren't going away for easter, we're actually have some family over next week for a little morning tea thing as no-one could really be bothered doing anything and SIL and family are going away anyway. We decided we're over the family politics of holiday season and we're going to plan a week away at christmas and have our first true family christmas smile Thinking tasmainia since it will be very far away and won't be 40 C and the Cabury chocolate factory is there woot whoo what more could you want? smile
Anyway, I'd better go, I'm trying to figure out how to wrap MIL's gift, the bag I was going to use isn't big enough so I might just have to keep it in the ugly carboard box it came in and wrap it in pretty paper, abby has made a card - I don't buy cards anymore I get abby to make them smile
Ciao Girls smile
