Splish Splash...

Our boys favourite time of day is bathtime!!!

Ollie is now making huge splashes when we say "splash splash..." and tries to pull himself up to suck on the bath handle... he smiles when i pour water over his head and giggles when I tickle his back! He always smiles at him self in the mirror when we take him out of the bath - precious boy!!

New top tots shirt...

On saterday we went to toptots and Ollie played in some water.... I was unorganised and didnt have a change of clothes for him, only some tracksuit pants (naughty mommy) so we ended up buying a toptots t-shirt which is TOOO cute!!
 He will wear this proudly!!
After much playtime and learning time he crashed in the car.... we know he is sleeping well when his dummy is looks like this!

I love watching this kid sleep.... he is like a little angel!

Mc Cafe....

I always say to mike "Who would ever eat breakfast at Mc Donalds"... today that who was me.
Ollie woke up really early so we were ready for work a little earlier than normal so we popped in for a coffee at Mc Cafe - AND i got my first ever Mc Donalds!
The coffee is always good..... I recon we'll do the coffee thing once a week :)
 BUT the breakfast was not so great..... nothing i would have again!!! I suppose you never know until you try!!
So today I have already eaten ALL my calories for the day.... SO NOT WORTH IT!
I go back to my statement ".... who would ever eat breakfast at Mc Donalds??"

little feet, little feet, let me out!!

This is how our child sleeps....

I tuck his feet back in his cot and he just sticks them out again :)
He is getting too big - we had to drop his cot as he is way too active now...dont want him falling out :)

Much needed morning fix.

Our precious Ollie isnt too well again, it seems he has a viral infection that will reaccour.... its just one of those things but it makes Ollie cough and that means he doesnt sleep too well so that means we dont sleep too well!
This morning after dropping mike off at work (he injured his knee and cant walk on it or drive) I popped into VIDA CAFE for a coffee.... thank goodness they open early!!
Thank you Lord for coffee shops that open before 7am!!!
Cuppachino was the order of the day - NO DECAF..... need the boost!!
(i got some breakfast too... egg and bacon panini... - dont tell my weight, it doenst need any friends)

I hope these sleepy eyes go away.....
Love my boy BUT I also love my sleep :)

He tries out all the camping chairs :)

Chomp Chomp....

Our boy is DEF from my side of the family - he LOVES to eat, loves his food and flaps his arms like a chicken when he sees his bottle or yoghurt or food....
We gave him a slice of bread with peanut butter on it on wednesday....

 Oh man he LOVED it!!!
After he had finished eating his bread he started noshing on the little table piece as if to say "can I have some more".... silly!
I just LOVE this kid!!

Sound the trumpets...

Sound the trumpets, cue the confetti, dance for joy - Oliver is sleeping through!!!
The mornings seems so much brighter these days....

Speaking of sleeping... Oliver is the FUNNIEST sleeper ever... every now and again when we go in to peak at him this is what we see....

LOVE THIS KID.... and love it now even more that he is sleeping through the night :)

Ollie is so much better - thank goodness!!! he is back to his old self -smiling, eating, sleeping well (bliss) so we went to church on sunday!! He was dressed in his new onsie that his aunt bought him from the isle of man - a winner for sure!!!
He had a nap before church instead of during church like he normally does... so after worship I took him into the foyer and fed him and then we had play time! They do have a speaker so I can hear the preach BUT to he honest I cannot concentrace long enough with this little one to hear all of it...

 Hows this frown :)

 We then went to do some shopping and have some lunch - little boy is big enough to sit in the feeding chairs now.... I cannot belive it!!!!!!!
(all happy families unitl he got niggly and mike and I had to take turns eating our food cause he was tired and didnt want to sit or lie down.... goodness! sometimes not worth going out for a meal :)
 while I was shpping (desperatly needing work clothes which I got - yay!!) Mike and Ollie went to visit his granny and grandpa.... he looks so happy!!
and then my folks have been away for the weekend and wanted to see Ollie so we had a quick pit stop on the way home.... eating again!!! All I ever seem to do is feed this child :)

a good day all in all - tiring but good!!
