holidays update

well our Winter bugs are fading and we have managed to get out and about a bit.
We've visited our favourite local park, had Wendy's for dinner (Finn's request), been to the new Harry Potter movie and we went to MOTAT today. I managed not to get photos of any of it!!!

I did get some cute bubbles in the bath shots the other night though :)

been hibernating.....

..... while we have all had the 'flu. A nasty 'flu it has been too! I have been in bed for about 5 days and still feel yuck. All the fun things we had planned for the school holidays have been pushed aside while we all felt sorry for ourselves and huddled inside waiting to feel better.

So hopefully we will all be better by Monday and we can do at least some of the fun things on the school holiday list.
One of the things we were going to do is make a doll's house. We actually got started on it before the 'flu hit.
Kasper helped me put together some cube units from the warehouse, and then we gave them some wallpaper.

Now i just need to find some cheap furniture to fill it on trademe.

We are also hoping to go up the skytower and go for some bike rides and Finn wants to go stay with Grandpa too but unfortunately Grandpa has the 'flu also!

My poor sick baby

Kasper has Pneumonia again. He's a bit miserable about it and is spending a lot of time hanging out on my back or napping in bed.
I snapped a whole lot of photos oh him being all sick and cute yesterday.

The Dr actually thinks that Finn has Pneumonia too but he seems far to happy to me! They both have antibiotics to take so hopefully Kasper will feel better by next week.

big communication progress!

Mikko has finally grasped the concept of repeating words! It's not every time and it's not every word but he will no say 'please' and 'ta' and a few others when prompted. I am working on teaching him when to say 'help me' at the moment which will be awesome when he gets it :)

The other day the neighbours were over and when the started playing Mikko rushed to join them :)
The no struggle dinner times are saving my sanity. I am making dinners he likes and not bothering with dishes I know he won't touch and the whole process is much less stressful more me.

Finn's bash to the head is healing up nicely and last week he progressed in school to the 'independant writer' level. We have his first student led conference tomorrow - that's PC talk for parent-teacher interview!

Kasper is just so cute at the moment, pointing and waving at everything. Still not talking much yet but we'll get there.

watching a movie this evening

Thanks for checking in!
