I am getting bigger.

Wow! I am almost 6 weeks old already. Time flies when you have 5 big people doting on you.

I am keeping them on their toes, catnapping through the day. I do let them get some sleep at night though so they are not too cranky.

Mum even helps me out in the wind department when things get a bit stuck....

I have started rewarding all their efforts with big smiles and cute noises.

I can sleep anywhere and love a noisy house, especially the sound of my brothers fighting. Bliss.

Love Benjamin xxx

Handmade help.

My heart goes out to all those affected by the terrible bushfires in VIC. What a tragedy for those who have lost friends, family, houses, schools, animals...

The Aussie crafting community is getting busy making, selling and sending things to help.

Rach from grandy and baa is looking for others to join with her in making kids/babies clothes, softies, blankets, bibs, hats etc... to send down to the kids. Check out her blog to see how you could help.

Also see the Handmade Help website for other ways you could help out, or bid on the great stuff they have up for auction.


Life around here is pretty busy.

I can't stop thinking, "I am a mum of FOUR!". How did that happen? (No need to explain, I do know how it happened, and 'Yes', we do own a TV.)

Benjamin continues to delight us all. He is at that almost smiling stage, and we can't help laughing at all the funny faces he pulls, and the cute way he goes cross-eyed trying to focus on our faces.

He can be quite restless during the day, but sleeps beautifully at night so I can't complain too much. He also copes really well being in and out of the car so much with school drop offs, pick ups and after school activities. The life of a 4th child.
