AND WE HAVE A WORD

Well, the youngest member of our household finally found his 'talking voice', he can now say "Baba"... Bex took a little video of him last night :


ABOVE: It's a really short video, but you do get to see and hear him 'talk'.

I also took a lot of photos last night, and will share some now:

 ABOVE:  The power went out momentarily last night, so I lit some candles... just in case it went out again.  It didn't, but it was nice having the candles burning for a while.


 ABOVE:  We turned the lights OUT, and Griffin took this photo... my camera's flash illuminated the entire room!
Yes, that is me down the end with me feet up and me blankie on.  BLISS.

I can't wait till we can have the fireplace on too... it's not working and the Living Flame Company are sending a repair man out on Wednesday morning.


 ABOVE: This little man was supposed to be in bed... but he kept waking up and crying, so he spent quite a bit more time with us in the lounge last night.


 ABOVE: It's a bit hard getting crabby with this baby... he is so darn cute.  Can ya see both his little teeth now?  I can.


 ABOVE:  Bub and his Mum.

ABOVE:  And with his Dad.




THE PARENTS, POOR KID!  (JUST JOKING)

We have just realised there are no recent photos of Steve, Bex AND Dante.  Lots of individuals, but not the little family together.  I must rectify that.

ABOVE:  Poor Stew, gets his feet up after cooking dinner and all the other things he does in the evening.

TODAY:  Steve is home today as he has a 4 day block off work.  So I suppose he will spend the day with his fiance and son.

I plan on sewing, after doing some housework,  so a normal day for me.

ONWARD...

LEIGH C:  thank you for your lovely comment... but I must correct you! ... We are New Zealanders (KIWI'S)... we do not live in Australia!
Our 'accent' is nothing like an Australians!


ABOVE:  clarification for anyone not familiar with where I live.

It's a glorious winter day today.. crisp but sunny.  Yaaa.

***BEST NEWS EVER!   STEVE HAS GOT A NEW JOB.  HE STARTS ON JULY THE 8TH.***

We are all just so thrilled to bits.

Things are looking up for our son at last.

MARY H:  but of course things looked up when he met Bex ! !  I meant in relation to his work.  The job he has right now is a dead end, no chance of bettering himself.  His new job has the potential to become his career, and a damn good one at that.
And monetarily he and Bex will be so much better off.

Bex is already talking about how soon they can save a deposit on a home!

End of day: our little grandson is being a ratbag!  He gets put to bed, then keeps waking up again.  So, he's been on Steve's lap for a couple of hours... keeps nodding off and on.  We are all heading off to bed now... baby included.
nite nite.

  1. I couldn't get any sound with the video but it was easy to see what he was saying anyway. I love the pic with his two little teeth showing.
