Chez Clampett

is now finished apart from the floating timber floor to be installed and some tidy up with the furniture inside all but done.

The kids love it and was the best anniversary present we will probably ever give each other.

2 months old

Already...where did the time go. Way too fast might I say that is for sure. We are getting heaps of smiles, laughs and 'talking' she is ever so cute and we love her to bits.

She had her first big bath with me the other day and she did the biggest belly laughs for some reason she found being in the bath with me very funny.

Mrs Dotty Wonka

Isn't she beautiful.

Lovely child baring hips, manky arms, eyebrows that really need to see a beautician and a neck head combo reminiscent of ET.

Beauty is in the eye of the beholder I am sure Baby Hillbilly will love her...we hope.

Where do babies come from

A conversation with Baby Hillbilly which originated with why BH should not be wearing nappies anymore.

BH: But mama you wear nappies!

Me: yes but only after I had a baby. (Regular Reader please know that i do not wear nappies that was just what I called feminine hygiene products to her when she asked one day)

BH: Mama are you going to have a baby?

me: No BH 3 is enough (me thinking cripes it has only been 8 weeks give me a chance woman to lose some post baby belly flab- yeah right who am I kidding that flab will be here for the long haul)

BH: LO was in your belly wasn't she.

me: yes and now she is out, you were in my belly too as was Jnr.

BH: and Daddy too?

me: No Daddy came out of Nana's belly and I came out of Grandma's belly

BH: and Poppy's too?

me: ummm no baby...

I genuinely look forward to our next discussion on how exactly the baby got in my belly....NOT

Some crafty stuff

Have been trying to do a bit of sewing of late but have not really been successful.
Lets just say if you are my friend and your kid is having a birthday expect a crayon roll in the gift bag.
Here is my latest one which is a jungle theme for my nephew Jack.

Really happy with it except I should have done the final sewing on the bottom as opposed to the top where you would not have seen the green cotton...damn it. I have also made 2 pairs of pj's to add to his birthday bag. I am yet to attempt a proper pj top as to be honest I cant see the sense when you can buy a set of pj's for less than $10. So I just buy a skivvy or singlet (on sale) and sew a fancy pocket on it. Also I am yet to try and sew a buttonhole - way too scary for my sewing skills or lack thereof.

Also on a crafty a note the final snuggle rug for Jnr Hillbilly he was the last to receive his but he was really happy with it. I used some old fabric we have had floating around the house which was a piece of material from spotlight that was the makings of a fabric book about dinosuars (Jnr is a mad dinosaur geek) so I cut some of the dinosaurs and then just sewed some panels around it. I then used flannel (to make it snuggly) as the backing - just some stuff I had in my 'stash' unfortunately it is not dinosaurs as it would seem that like most 'fasion' things in retail trying to buy for boys is extremely limiting especially if you are trying to buy cheap stuff. Rant over.

Last a group shot of the 3 musketeers and one of the not so Little One and one of her many chins. She is huuuuge.

Seriously I have just dropped Jnr off at Prep, Baby HB off at daycare and the Little One is sleeping (ooh she is a doll) It is now 1.30pm and it is almost time to turn around and pick them up again.

Where the frick has my day gone?

Out of context

I overhead a line on Baby Hillbilly's DVD yesterday...

"...Max is upset because I wouldn't let him ride me like a horse..."

It sure made my head spin around the mind boggles.
