Saturday’s stuff….

Saturday March 24th, 2012….

Asher and Cherie dropped in this morning and after lunch we went out to do some errands (and hope Rubes would have nap in the car!).  We picked up our aboriginal artwork from the framer (Artland Indooroopilly) and it looks fantastic.  They did a really great job!

My two pics today are Instagram ones…. having a bit of fun with that on the new iPhone 🙂

You did have quite a big sleep in the car today in the end… which meant a later night.  We put some ‘In the Night Garden’ on for you and here you are glued!!  You’ve taken over my feeding chair as you think it’s the best chair in the house for watching the tube!!

A pit stop for a feed was required today whilst we were out and about… you fell asleep promptly your tummy was full and looked so cute with your face all smooshed up that Dadda had to take a pic.  Well, actually, Daddy’s first effort was strangely as much about my bosom as your sweet face, so we had to get a second shot 😉



No. Sleep. ‘Til….

March 17th, 2012….

So, I have the Beastie Boys song in my head… actually I think Ruby is running it as her theme song… through the day at least.  Surely 21 months old is too young to drop a daytime sleep??…. Pleeeeeeease Universe!!

Apparently this is the position one should assume when one is very tired (but has refused to sleep) and needs to poo….  worked remarkably well for you today Ruby 😉  Your father was wishing you had a disposable nappy on….

“C’mon seriously Mum, I just want to sleep.  Get that camera out of my face….. you’re worse than the paparazzi!”

But, you’re just so yummy, my boy! xxx

Lucky she is cute!!

Saturday 28th January…

I really have so much to be grateful for today… not one, but two lovely family catch ups, a great acupuncture session (loooooong overdue) and my husband and mum-in-law just did the washing up!  Yet, I am still feeling blah!

Had a lot of trouble deciding on a pic for today…. I think in finding the energy to journal about it too….

Little one, I woke to you sitting up in the bed saying “everybody here!” – meaning you, Dadda and I…♥ Your Granny Chris is borrowing your bed while she stays so you are in with us for a bit.  I slept most of the night on the king single on the floor and you with Dadda…but when I got up to go to the toilet at 5am you were lying horizontally across the bed on the pillows with your feet in Daddy’s back!  Daddy was asleep, but clinging to the edge of the bed!!  So I got in and snuggled you up to me… which Mummy liked a bit 😉 and you seemed to like too…  We had a lovely morning – we made a smoothie and then went to Dondy and PaRoy’s for brekky.  Mumma went from there to an acupuncture appt with Uncle PK… and when I came home I hoped you’d be sound asleep so I could climb in with you…. but I could hear you talking and crying a bit.  Granny Chris told me Daddy had been trying to get you to sleep for an hour and a half!!  I came in and lay down with you, but after another half an hour we gave up…. so the pic above was taken just after we got up again… your eyes look so tired to Mama, but you were demanding to look at “photo o’ Ruby” on Granny Chris’ laptop….

We had a really nice evening at Aunty Mel & Uncle Chris’ house… you played with your cousins and we had fish and chips for dinner 🙂  Dinner time was like feeding time at the zoo!!

So a day of challenges and delights, you’re lucky you’re cute!

You crashed out in about 5 minutes tonight… Mama’s joining you soooooon!  xox
