My sweet little girl is at times, not so sweet! She has managed to create a bit of havoc in our house this week, which includes causing a trip to the womens and childrens hospital for her poor brother! It started out as any other day, but then the sweet assasin struck just before I was going to leave to drop the kids to school. I got out of the shower and was greeted by screams from Ethan, and I could hear Paul telling Kaitlyn off for hitting Ethan. I had no time to worry about it, the problem had been dealt with so I dropped the kids to school. When I got there, Ethan was holding his eye, I didnt take too much notice, I just thought he was still trying to get all the attention he possibly could.
I stopped thinking he was after attention when the school rang me, and I had to go and pick up the little lad. Off to the doctors we went and with the addition of some coloured drops in Ethans eye, we could see a large scratch right across the eye! Now I was feeling very sorry for the little lad. We were also advised that he needed to be seen by an eye specialist and were referred back to the Womens and Childrens hospital. After several hours of waiting the next day, we finally saw a doctor and this time when the drops were applied, guess what, no more scratch! The eye had healed itself within 24 hours! I was amazed, but very happy that no major damage had been done.
She doesn't look that mean here! But dont be fooled by her innocently cheeky appearance, she is now officially an eye scratcher! Along with quite a little whinger, highly dummy dependant and cant live without her "waffle blanket". This little miss has also decided that she wants to be toilet trained. Difficult timing for me as she always needs to go when I am feeding and settling Ashton, but she is doing a great job so far and if I am vigilant in reminding her she rarely has an accident. On the up side it will save me a fortune on nappies when she is fully trained so I am very happy about that.
Now little mister Ashton has been stacking on the weight still. He is 7 weeks old today and I weighed him on Friday and the little chap is now over 5kg. It is amazing to think that it took 9 months for this little guy to gain 3kg, but in just 7 weeks he has gained 2kg! He has changed so much since he was born and it never ceases to amaze me how quickly they grow.
Look at those chubby little cheeks! Yes, I did finally get a couple more pics taken. I thought it was time to try and get a couple of me holding him. I would still love to get a full family picture, but the two oldest boys were having a sleep over at a friends house!
Now, changing the subject to scrapping related stuff.... I was assigned a project through Aussie Scrap Source and those that know me found it rather amusing! You see, I really am not a fan of Christmas and all the commercialism of it and the actual day is just stressful with all the running around to different families for breakfast, lunch and tea. Now to scrap Christmas pages is even lower on my list of enjoyable activities! Now couple that with an acrylic album (always challenging) in the shape of a Christmas tree (what the??) and I honestly thought I had gone to scrapping hell! Well, despite elevated stress levels, I was albe to complete the project and here it is:
I also had a layout up on the prima blog this week.
I created this layout months ago, sometimes it takes a while to b shown on the Prma blog. TFL.
