This week...

Well blow me down, its been almost another week since I last posted. Boy, the time goes fast!

This week has seen a considerable move in the right direction for Lani's sleeping... she is now sleeping through most of the night (at 6 weeks), yay!! I give her her last feed usually about 10pm, then she usually goes almost straight down and sleep through until 4 or 5am.. this has happened for the last 3 nights now - woohoo!

We had a horrendous time with Eli at bed-time last night... he just started screaming and screaming and screaming... I assumed it was his teeth coming in again, but he wa sjust so distressed, screaming and kicking at us and didn't want cuddles or anything.. I was preparing for a long night.... after a little while (probbaly an hour) I decided to change his nappy to see if it was burning or something.... no probs there... then I checked his clothes and when I pulled off his booty - there the problem lay!! He must have had a hair or a thread or something caught around his little toe, it was all red and sore looking.... but thankfully just pulling it off was the solution, and he calmed down straight away and went to sleep. And praise God he slept well through the night too, it didn't bother him again and he's woken back to normal!

**Edited to add: OH! How could I forget!! Eli also had his first 'real' haircut this week.... bye bye baby... he looks more grown up for sure, but still as gorgeous as ever, and he *really* needed it... I didn't bother taking the camera though (too much effort with the two babies alone!) so will have to take some nice shots of him this week to show...

Had a special visit with a special girl Rozzie yesterday arvo... boy, I can't believe it had been close to a year (Oct last year) since I saw her last.. boy time flies... we had a nice chat together, with coffee/hot milo and muffins (thanks for those Rozzie!)... and she even stayed through the witching hour (baths, cooking etc) and ate dinner with us before heading off to the airport to pick up her friend... was soooo good to see you honey.. let's not leave it so long between visits again hey!

Had a big long chat with my girl Lus during the week too... we are just sooo excited about her coming up for a visit in... let me see... 48 days time!! (Gee that makes it seem ages away still doesn't it!?) We are trying to organise a lovely get-together for the Brissy SOF girls and some of Lusi's other scrappin buds up here, so hopefully that will work for everyone and they will all be about to come... I'm also really excited because Lusi is going to lead worship with me at church on the Sunday... oh this girl is such a WONDERFUL TALENTED musician and singer... and although she'll put my voice to shame, its all good coz we'll be singing together to our God!! Wow, what an experience that will be, can't wait to worship our King with you honey! Also planning on having an SOF crop at my house that weekend too (maybe) so stay tuned SOF girls...

Have really had a lovely social week! Was out shopping on Wed and Thurs... had coffee with Michelle and Karen while out on Wed.. and went shopping with Hayley and her new bubby Caitlyn on Thursday.... both days I seemed to be there forever and not get a great deal done!! And poor Eli, being strapped in his pram for 5 hours for 2 days in a row.... oh well, a girl's gotta shop right!? Will have to head back next week too as I have 2 engagement parties to buy gifts for, and need to exchange some clothes too...

Well, that's all... no pics this week. Hope you're all having a great weekend. We don't have a lot planned this weekend... were thinking of going to the Sons of Korah concert at Brisbane City Church tonight, but then decided against it as we'd have to take Lani and I don't think there will be room for her (or I'd be confined to the parents room all night) PLUS its free so it will be PACKED! They are such a wonderful band to see though (they played at our old church a few years ago)... but I'll have to just listen to my CDs today I guess!

It's our 3rd wedding anniversary on Tuesday. Don't know what we're going to do... it seems to come around so quickly and then we never plan anything or buy eachother anything... shocking huh... oh well.. might try to find some time to make Greg a card today...

Have a good weekend all xx

Yay for Lani sleeping through. Similar thing has happened with Joel this week - the last 4 nights he's had a feed at 10 and then woken again around 4 for another one. I have totally enjoyed the 5-6 hours of straight sleep. Let's pray it continues for both of them!!

Well done on getting Lani settled into such a good routine so early! I hope it continues. Poor little Eli! The stresses of not being able to communicate! I guess if he ever carries on like that again his clothing will be the first thing you check!! Glad it was nothing worse.

OK so now I'm just a little green jelly LOL, I'd love to have had a milo/tea afternoon with you and Rozzie!! Sooo glad you girls had such a lovely time with one another. :-) Rozzie sounds like such a sweetheart!

Oh dear, poor little Eli, don't worry sweetie, it happens sometimes, I'm so glad his little toe is ok.

Hugs and love to you darl!

Me Chrissy, great that you were able to catch up with Rozzy Nat, hope she gets to come in Sept when Lusi is here too. Looking forward to catching up with you all then. How good too that Lani is sleeping through for you. What a blessing. Can't wait to see photos of Eli with his haircut too.
