Yes, we've been away. We were in Perth for two weeks (or thereabouts) visiting my sister and her family. Got back late last night. Have a zillion things to do now - unpacking, washing, sorting, downloading photos, all the little bills and odds and ends that need seeing to... You know how it is.
And Jamie is crawling now, which is making life a bit fun because I realise how far he's developed in two weeks, now we're back home. Aargh! I need safety gates, I need everything up off the floor, Phil needs to find the cover for the telephone port in the wall, etc etc etc. And we're getting the new bathroom done, so there's tiles and workmen's stuff everywhere out the back of the house.
When I say crawling, he's not actually *crawling*. Well, in his own style he is. It's more like commando crawling on his belly, pulling himself along with his arms. Occasionally he gets one leg hooked up under him and looks like he's going to crawl for real. But for the most part he looks like a little seal flippering his way up the corridor :).
Phil came back to Adelaide a week earlier than we did and painted the nursery! It looks fantastic now. Almost like a little baby's room. Except for the running treadmill standing folded up smack bang in the middle of the room, lol! It does look nice though. And now we have a double bed leaning up against the walls of the corridor. Aargh! We seriously need more rooms in this house. How many times have I said that I can't wait to move?
Well, just a quick hello. Thanks to all of you who left comments and/or sent me emails to check whether I'd dropped off the face of the earth.
I have photos to share. I have layouts to post.
I also still have washing to do, food to cook, unpacking to do, baby-proofing to do.
