Still here with a baby safely in my belly, not even really waiting, just getting on with living. A blessing of having a baby at this time of year is that there is so much other stuff happening the days seem to fly by!
There is of course lots of talking and planning being done
The boys love using these wooden figures to talk about how our family is going to grow. Kaya especially is so matter of fact about it all, talking to him you would think this baby has always been part of our family. Arlo, well obviously hes not really sure what its all about and thinks he has a baby in his belly too.
Ive been making a few things for our little person, we have so much already but I do like them each to have some things that are just specially for them.
These little booties are so cute I had to make some, the grey are cashmere and the pink are the softest organic plant dyed wool you ever touch, pink just in case. (if they arent needed here I have no doubt I will be able to find them a home elsewhere!)
The cutest hat for winter

He still has a sleep most days and sleeps in our family bed, even after an attempt to move both boys to their room. He greets the people he loves in the most enthusiastic way. He is starting to want to be just the same as his brother. He loves lawn mowers (lawnlawnlawn) and golf. He is so good at sports (lucky Jimmy is their father!) and loves to draw. He has a sweet tooth and can usually get whatever he wants from his Da.
Arlo brings something so special to our family and we are very very grateful to have him.
We love you bubbading.

There are the 2 amazing boys I spend each day with
The editing of SO MANY photos that leaves me tired of sitting at the computer
The Christmas crafting (which is really fun!)
The little person who will be joining us oh so soon has me not so comfortable and questioning my on line presence. I go through stages of wanting to protect my family's privacy so will remove a few facebook 'friends' who I never hear from, let my blogging go for a while but I find myself missing the journal side of blogging, I started when Kaya was 6 months old and LOVE reading back over my old posts.... so here I am again, we shall see what happens from here ;)
While on my break we celebrated Advent at our schools annual fair the doll from a few posts down found a new home and Kaya was thrill to find these socks we chose for our baby at the craft stall 'are just the same as the ones in our book', our book being our favourite story of the moment, a gorgeous home birth story that I catch my boys sneaking peaks of, especially the birth pages.
This week of advent we are adding plants to our nature table and the boys have been peeling a walnut off each morning in their countdown.so a happy advent to you all, Id love to hear how you celebrate

Since Thursday he has watched it a few times, not all at once.
Skip to yesterday.....
I had just got home and Jimmy was outside with the boys, he came down to my craft room and told me to come and have a look at Arlo. He told me that on the golf dvd the 'instructor' recommends wearing a glove to help with your grip. Arlo had disappeared inside and come back out moments later to continue his 'putting'. Like this.
