Adjusting to early pregnancy...

Nausea, napping and so sleepy.

Luckily I don't feel too bad though. 

Louis has been saying so many words like "banana" and "ted".  Such a clever munchkin.

On Sunday Dad called and we went off to watch Carlton vs Collingwood at the MCG.  We went with my brother, sister and nephew.  It was a nice break!  Michael and Louis had a nice day together and I missed them so much.

Sharing the news in Bonnie Doon...

Up to Bonnie Doon to let Oma and Opa know they are going to be Grandparents again!  So fun to share the news and they were very excited to hear.

Louis loved seeing the cows and kept saying "moo". 

Getting stuck into a bikky...

Louis with his first beer...not for another 17 years 2 month Opa!

It's always so nice to visit the country.  The open space, fresh air and quiet is so peaceful.  Louis had a big nap today so I had one as well.  So nice!

Gearing up for some big news!

Another week coping with running a dance school, feeling sick and loving on this little cutie...


Louis had his first visit to childcare which was not fun.  He only stays for a couple of hours when I drop him off at around 2pm and Michael collects him around 4.30pm.  Not the end of the world but I still struggle with it!

He had his first visit to Lilydale lake and wasn't so sure of the grass and sand but by his second visit he was a little more interested in it!

Louis is now 10 months old!  The time is flying.  He now is 71.5cm long and 8.8kg in weight.  Growing nice and healthy even though he is a little munchkin. 

Louis and I have both been fighting off a rotten cold this week.  Poor little thing has slept terrible with his snuffly nose, therefore I've slept terrible as well.  A long week. 

I had a check up with my Dr and all of the iron and vitamin levels look good.  That's exciting because I'm really looking forward to trying for baby number 2!!! I'm so clucky. 

Which is interesting because just a week later I took a pregnancy test and...

I'm so excited and I think Michaels very surprised! Haha.  I took the test because I woke up feeling a bit strange and little queasy and a nice strong line appeared!  (I found out later from my scan that today I was 4 weeks 6 days pregnant).  Another little bubba to add to our growing family!!  So happy.

On to August...

 Ups and downs this week with a few challenges with work and organising day care.  We also had a rotten weekend with a tummy bug affecting Michael and I.  Luckily our little Louis didn't seem bothered at all!

Seriously, check out all of the cuteness...

We've been having lots of giggles and playing and so much fun. (What a little dribble pot!).

He's standing up all the time and saying words like Dada, dog and moo.  What a little chatterbox!

He's standing up all all of the time now, for a good 5 to 10 seconds all on his own!  What a champion.

I keep saying it but I think this is my favourite age so far!
