9 Months / 40 Weeks

Hey I'm 9 Months old!

Still drooly as ever :) But it's a good excuse to wear cute bibs!

6 teeth and super fluffy hair

and LOTS of personality!

My big toothy smile!
He LOVES ripping things up!

SO much fun :)

Waving goodnight to Mama

Just this week you have started reaching forward (for toys) far enough that you go down onto your tummy! One of the skills needed for crawling!

Sunday we went to Balmoral beach

It was the first time I let you play in the sand - but you spent most of your time just chewing on beach toys.

Genna & Helen down at the water collecting shells

We're building a sand castle!

It's finished! And Genna's all dressed up to go splash in the water a bit (she insisted on wearing her new swimming outfit even though the water is way too cold to actually swim)

You guys have the BEST time in the bath together

The new fun thing is both of you banging your legs up and down so water splashes - you think it's hilarious

My sister is SOOOO funny!

Just this week you have started feeling textures in your books with 1 finger as well - you LOVE books :)

Your friend Sophia stopped by one morning to say hello - you loved seeing her

We also made our way down to Freshwater beach this week - you had fun playing with Kameko

Max had fun digging his hands into the wet sand

We stayed in the shad while everyone else was busy playing

Very proud she filled 4 buckets with sand and a toy on top - fun!
Yesterday we went into the city with Selina, Amelia, Clara & MacKenzie - I LOVE this pic of us by the Opera House!!
Posing with MacKenzie (a few days ago Dadda was reading Genna a short version of Lady & the Tramp before bed. The story is basically they met, they played, they fell in love. She said 'Dadda, I fell in love too, with MacKenzie :)

Genna going up and down the man Opera House stairs

Cuddle picture. He's been a BIG cuddler this week - I LOVE it
Max at twilight

Fake smile for the camera - ha ha

9.6 kilos this week (21 pounds) !

Week 38 & 39 (Easter)

Cutie Pie :)
Showing off that his middle teeth are JUST starting to pop through!
Easter! Genna's favorite holiday!! (she LOVES the hunt!)

We did actually let him have a little taste - he spit it straight out :) Too sweet !

I love that these chocolates make a peter rabbit picture!

pre Easter lunch with Clara & Amelia - the girls decorated the cupcakes!

necklace making - fun!!!!

Dyed Easter eggs - harder than it looks when we only have brown eggs to dye!!
Max very happy on his horsey Genna

I like the pink egg the best :)

Waving to me in the kitchen - hello Mama! He just started waving this week :)

Serious :) He's getting quite strong pushing up on his arms

Our to lunch - he's such an easy baby to take out and about - Mexican lucnh with Mama & Genna
VERY proud of her Easter craft!

Genna was thrilled to show my cousin MacKenzie her new trainers (tennis shoes)

Featherdale wildlife park YAY! Genna knows the place so well she was telling us about each thing. She was VERY into the little kangaroos (until one bit her on the finger when she was trying to feed it - oops!)

patting the koala

Max had a feel too
It was a REALLY fun day out!

Most of the kangaroos were full by the time we got there though (around lunch time) must have been a lot of morning visitors - we did find one or two who still wanted a treat though

Happy happy boy at 39 weeks today

Check out those CHEEKS! 

He now has 6 teeth (4 on the top, 2 on the bottom). LOVES avocado, pasta, peas, broccoli and rock melon (cantelope). He can wave, sit up unaided and is LOVES his big sister :) They love screeching to each other (which drives Mama crazy!)
