My week on Instagram

My week according to Instagram.

I've been ignoring my online world this week and hanging out with my mother in law and spending some 'screen free' time with my hubby so I took all of six photos. We spent last Sunday at the beach with our little nippers. William is standing up more and more and destroying everything he can reach which is pretty funny to watch, the big boys are not so impressed with him. My yummy sweet chilli salmon salad, and the boys pizza. I've stacked on so much weight while I've been feeding so I'm trying to change my eating habits. How cute are my new glasses for my increasingly blindness? I now have glasses and prescription sunglasses so I can see while I'm driving. The boys had lazy dinner last week so to make me feel better about it, I made their dinner into an animal. As you do.

9 Months

One of the first things people say to me when they see William is how happy and content he is. How happy he is to go to other people for a cuddle or play pee-a-boo with. He's a real people person, and as long as I don't do anything crazy like go to the toilet or walk out of his sight he's a pretty happy kid.
I never thought we were going to make it to this stage, it seemed like he was going to be a full on kid forever, but he has started playing with his brothers more and more which is such a sweet thing to watch. 

Once he figured out how to crawl and find all the things he shouldn't be playing with he was such a happier kid. Can't blame him really, his brothers do tend to move fast and from his point of view it's all fun stuff!
Can you see his gums? Still no teeth. Not even any sign of teeth. It doesn't seem to bother him, he chews and eats pretty much everything, toast, meat, pears, apple slices, carrot sticks. I'm sure with teeth he'll be a eating machine.

Amazingly we've even had a couple of nights where we slept. Yes that's right, slept. It may have only been til 5am but it's a start. I'm planning on weaning him soon. Maybe next month. I'd like to lose some of the weight I've stacked on while I've been breast feeding. I'm sure my metabolism stops completely when I'm feeding. 

He's gotten so big to see how much he's changed see his month by month photos here

And just like that...

..the holidays are over. These holidays have been the best we've had. We didn't even get to the 'I'm bored' stage. Amazing.We've been so busy, it's been great. Next week I'm sending the big boys to school and Charlie to daycare then I'm putting my feet up!

This is how we spent the last day of the holidays. A quick picnic in the park with Michael while he was on his lunch break. The kids and I haven't really seen him much these holidays. When he's not away at work he's working his second job. So yesterday we packed up some food and picked up Dad from work headed to the park. 

Can't be a picnic without camembert and boiled eggs right? 

William had his first taste of egg and was quite happy with it. Even if he did spread it everywhere. 

I may have made a camembert sandwich. As you do. 

It was so nice for the kids to get to see where Daddy goes to work and spend a bit of time together in the middle of the day. I can't say I minded it to much either. Next week I'm keeping him home for a few days.
