Point + Shoot

Here's a few snaps of my weekend for Chantelle's latest Point + Shoot bit of fun. Head over to Fat Mum Slim to check out more.
!!Short Hair!!
More than 20cm cut off, and shorter than I've had it since I had no hair when I was sick about 8 years ago! A good move I think - I had a silly long hair = health association that needed a kick in the butt.

Littlest Buddy (Lachie) hanging out in his new bumbo (such a clever head-holder-upper) and... intently watching the cricket!!! SO cute.

The tree is trimmed

Our Christmas tree is a constant work in progress.

T and I have a tradition of buying one very beautiful ornament to put on the tree each year. So at the moment, the tree has fleeting moments of beauty, in amongst some pretty stock standard baubles. But each year the balance shifts. I love this ongoing transformation.
This year we bought the Wedgewood 'my first christmas' booties for the boys, and I can't wait until they start picking our their own decorations each year.
I can't guarantee that our tree will always be beautiful, but I can be totally sure that it will be grow to be more and more meaningful every year.

12 weeks!

Darling boys

You are 12 weeks old today! Happy 3 month birthday little ones.
You are very special little monkeys and we love you so so much.
I know people don't believe me when I tell them, but you're really no trouble at all. You're both good natured, and pretty easy to please.
It's a privilege to watch you grow and learn. You're such funny little things.
You pull hilarious faces. You smile at us - right at us - it's amazing. You grab hold of toys and reach out to touch things. You stare at us with such intensity. You grab each other's hands. You both love snuggles, and that's a good thing, because your Mama and Daddy do too.
As ever, all the love in the universe
Your Mama
