Rafe is three months old today, and in my completely unbiased opinion, the cutest baby boy on the planet.
Just look at him.
He’s still ma vas, but he is happy to be left with Nana and his sisters when I tutor. He comes with me to drama class, and naps in the wrap while I teach.
He prefers to sit rather than lie on his playmat, but he’s still a bit of a bobble-head. He is always smiling, and often interrupts his feeding to grin at me. He wasn’t too impressed with his vaccinations last week, but only cried a little bit before he was all smiles again.
His eyes are changing colour. It looks like I’m going to have a brown-eyed boy.
It seems like he is always drinking, but I can hardly blame him. This heatwave has been intense. I’ve been trying to get the girls to drink more water, but they weren’t interested until I made this chart. It wasn’t supposed to be a competition between the two of them, but it’s turned out to be. Whatever gets them drinking, though, right?
I also made these yummy frozen yoghurt popsicles. This time I used peach yoghurt (with peach pieces inside). It actually works out cheaper than buying the six-pack of small yoghurts all the time. One litre tub makes about 18 popsicles. (The only issue is that I keep hurting my fingers trying to pull them out.)
The girls are loving their swimming lessons. They were bummed this week when I cancelled a lesson because they were sick. “But I want to show Teacher Kelly how I float!”
Because they were both sick, we took a break from school this week. Next week we’ll start our final block of school for the year. And next year is grade one, but I’m trying not to think about that too much.
The girls are in our church’s Christmas play this year. If you’re in the Edenvale area this weekend, head to the Baptist Church to watch the sweetest two shepherd girls in the history of nativity plays. In my completely unbiased opinion, of course.
I hope I get to see some of you at the play.
What have you been up to?
