Long Weekend

Tiny Today. (look at the look of desperation in her eyes.... FOOD.... GIVE ME THE FOOD.)
Its been a long weekend here, and we have been FLAT CHAT! We've caught up with 2 families everyday of the weekend... and quite frankly, we're exhausted!

Tiny seems to go with the flow, so well. We were out late last night, having a BBQ with our neighbours, and Miss T was quite happy to sit in her pram (stroller), whilst we ate, drank, and talked for hours! She eventually nodded off to sleep, around 830pm. I was amazed. I really didn't think she would, or that we'd be able to stay out, past 9ish.

While we've been socialising, all weekend, some WONDERFUL friends in Queensland, have finally received their allocations for their beautiful children! One couple are now proud parents to a angelic 20 month old girl, and another couple are proud parents to a gorgeous 6 month old BOY!!! So I offer my heartiest CONGRATULATIONS, to all those families who have now finally seen the face of their long awaited children. So so wonderful. (I'll ask if I can pop a picture, on my blog, so you can all have a squiz!)

I've been spending my nights, organising photos. I've been downloading photos to a jumpdrive, so I can take it into the photo processor, and get hard copies. I normally, just print a few, on my printer... but I think it'll kill my printer - so I'm get them professionally done!!

OK... I've taken a few snapshots over the last couple of days... but it seems like such an effort to download them!!! hehehe... funny how time just doesn't seem to stretch like it used to?!!

I managed to get a few off for you...
Bow Victory!!!
Not happy... the bow victory was short lived (like 10 seconds?!!)

Tiny has earned her nickname "Seagull"... I have no idea why?!!! (she'll take food from absolutely anyone... just incase you couldn't work that one out!)

Tiny ready for Church, on Sunday 8th March

I call this one "Kookie Face"
Who needs an alarm clock, when you have a little sister (and a very vindictive mother?!)

Success! She woke up!!

I think this is hilarious... Miss M braces herself for Tiny's "whack" to the face!!!

I just LOVE this little face.

Such sweet photos! I SO love the first one!!!!

I dreamed that you came to visit us in broken hill LOL!!!

When do you jet off to Bail?

I think we have a seagull on our hands, too. She has been up - wide awake - since midnight. It's 4:39 a.m. now. She has eaten 2 bowls of congee, half a jar of applesauce, and a bowl of oatmeal. Plus, she has had one bottle and a part of another. All since midnight. AND, she had a big supper around 6 or 7, before going to bed! Bottomless pit!

We used to call that "gimme food" look the Tongginator's "baby bird mouth." Somehow I like seagull better...

Ava's family said...

I get that same look in my eyes in a slow service restaurant! LOL!
Cute pictures!

Linda said...

Tari looks so great.. Just proves she is in the right family... Love the pictures of her waking up Miss M. Life as she knew is done. She better put all her good things away as her sister will be playing with them. Looking forward to more peeks into life in a family of 5. Linda

LOVE the pictures! Soooo, cute! I love the one of Miss M waiting for the whack! :)

Jenni said...

how many strands of hair did you manage to gather to put that bow in?! how did Miss T cope with the crowds and volume at church? Is that the first time you've been since you got home? She looks like she's been with you forever :-)

Alyson and Ford said...

Love the Kookie face!! She's so bright-eyed!
AA ate way too much the first few months but they will learn to feel full, it finally happened to AA as we gradually put less on her plate for her first helping.
Yes, we don't have much time for the computer... so here I am at 4 a.m. or 9 p.m.!! I do miss visiting our bloggy friends every day...
