Why having a toddler is like being at a frat party...

I saw this on a mates facebook the other day and HAD to steal it, too funny!

10. There are half-full, brightly-colored plastic cups on the floor in every room. Three are in the bathtub.

9. There’s always that one girl, bawling her eyes out in a corner.

8. It’s best not to assume that the person closest to you has any control over their digestive function.

7. You sneak off to the bathroom knowing that as soon as you sit down, someone’s going to start banging on the door.

6. Probably 80% of the stains on the furniture contain DNA.

5. You’ve got someone in your face at 3 a.m. looking for a drink.

4. There’s definitely going to be a fight.

3. You’re not sure whether anything you’re doing is right, you just hope it won’t get you arrested.

2. There are crumpled-up underpants everywhere.

1. You wake up wondering exactly how and when the person in bed with you got there.

Remember this post...?

Well here is a wee update on it... the disposable undies - were awesome!! and I highly recommend them to all women about to give birth...

The nappy caddy - has been ordered!!! not from that site as they still don't have any in stock but from 3bears and in blue not chocolate, as it matches my changing mat in the lounge... I can't wait for it to arrive :)

The other day I was out Kumeu way for something and decided to stop into one of the local fruit shops out that way... Boy was I glad I did... I paid $21 for all this;

This is more than I would normally get for $50 at the supermarket... so all in all I'm pretty happy that I stopped...

He's Growing So Fast...

Axel was 6 weeks old on Sunday... and he's a big boy... His newborn nappies are for 2.5kgs to 6kgs and he has grown out of them already!!!  Just as well I bought all sizes before he was born, as I wanted to be "organised"...

Tomorrow will mark our last visit with the midwife {which I'm sad about} and it will be interesting to see how much he weighs now...

He smiles ALL the time now... is feeding well {still fully breastfed}... Sleeps wonderfully...

Cammy is the most awesome big brother... always giving him kissess and cuddles... yesterday I was downstairs putting the washing on while Axel was in bed asleep... next thing I hear Cammy at the top of the stairs yelling "mum - he needs you"... I go upstairs to find out what he is talking about and he is standing outside my bedroom telling me that "Axel needs you" as he had woken up and was crying... so cute... Cammy has grown so much in the last 6 weeks also... he makes me so proud :)
