Last week :)

Genna asked me to do a plait (braid) across the top of her head like a crown & a pony tail
she was very happy with the result :)
 

 
I love that little hair tuft - we went for lunch at the rsl
Big boy in the stroller :)
 

I'll take that cup Genna!
 

 
He's getting so good at throwing balls :)
 

 
Someone found how to reach the monitor!! It's attached to the end of the crib - we may have to move it up on the wall now!
Very proud - she traced the words & drew the pictures all on her own ;)
Family dinner - only missing Dadda - but it was fun to sit together
Checking out a local park
 

These swings were great for little ones!!

Swing in the 'spiderweb' swing with Genna


 
GORGEOUS Minnetonka moccasins on Maxi - thanks Joni :)




Genna decided to make this one day so she could play 'Christmas Day'
her favourite holiday of course!
 
 
LOVING this discovery toy!!
 
 
At the mall the other day she spotted these 'horses' you could ride - so cool!
Unicorn!!
 

 
 




I have a new phone (not happy about how unclear the pictures are!) I also get stuck on a certain page sometimes and I cannot figure out how to get it off the screen - Genna decided to try and help me :)
 
 
 
And all his walking progress - before the broken leg drama :( Oh well, doc says he'll pick it up again when the cast comes off no problem!

Busy times!



Picking out Genna's fish the day before her birthday

She chose a fighting fish - she was SO excited! (must post a pic of her with it on the next blog!!)

Day out at the RSL - Max was loving the fake grass

Genna was loving the 'magic' show

investigating - he was loving poking his fingers in the holes

snack time!

SO happy to get a face paint!!


Another day at the mall they had a dinosaur display - Genna LOVED it!!

free dinosaur painting too - super fun


Max had a ride in a truck while Genna painted ;)

 

Bath time is more fun together
 

I know I have a walker - but I LOVE putting things on the upside down stool and pushing it around :)
I was cleaning his room the other day and moved the cot to find all of these on the floor against the wall!!! I thought we were running low on clean dummies (nuks)!!!

Lovely winter day - outside enjoying the sun & bubbles




Genna prepping for her outing to Disney on Ice with Helen (her special bday present) she was SOOOOO excited
All dressed up for the show with her lovely new Ariel doll from Helen

She LOVED it - was absolutely amazed :) And so happy to have a special day out with her aunty!
Back at home - we played blocks :)

Later in the weekend - Dadda put together Genna's big present from us!

Such a poser!

She was nervous at first but then gained a bit of confidence when she realised the training wheels wouldn't let her tip
 

Always so good at playing with her brother too!


SO tall with Dadda!

Getting into all of Genna's stuff!!

At the park :)

Our for a chilly walk - can you spot the Baba? He has become SO attached to it! When he wakes from nap he often clutches onto it for awhile while playing.

The stool again!!
Playing with his sister - we're trying to teach him gentle touch so he doesn't hurt her accidentally by hitting her in the face!
 
 
Big news was I started back at work last week. It was a tough first long day for me and for Max, but by the second day we were both feeling more settled.
 
He also started 'kind of' using a spoon this week :) Most of it still goes on the floor - but he does get a bit in his mouth!
 
On the weekend he started the big next step towards being a toddler......
FIRST STEPS!!! He figured out how to stand up from sitting a few days ago then every day progressed a few more steps - I think he's up to 4 now!
