Had a midwife appointment today. Caden is growing like a 'monster' according to Cathi. He is puttimg on over double the normal weight gain each week and is now 10lb 14oz or 4.940kg! Haha. Little fatty. :)
And here's Lilli at the same age. How similar are they?!!!
Caden in his cute as wrap. It's like a cocoon.
Also we had a visit from Jo and Maiah. Here is Maiah holding Caden.
Hmmm, stretch, ahhh...
Uh oh, might be getting grumpy...
Yep, sure is...
Oh no, it's ok...
Ah nah, it's gonna blow...
And later again all is peaceful in my world...
Back in his favourite place again.

I put the kids in the stroller today and walked down to town. We did a couple of errands and then I got hot chocolate and a fluffy for Lilli and Caden slept while we drank them. Such a good little guy.
Lilli has started saying eeekk today. So cute. Every time something happens she'll be like 'eeekk'. Hahaha.
Doing the aloha/cher bro sign...
Might stick with thumbs up Mummy, it's easier.
Here's a windy smile.

Caden really really smiled for the first time today! He followed it with another smile and then I swear he nearly giggled. Ohhh, so cute.
Later on he had his first bath with Mummy in the big bath.
Here he is with Daddy.
And a photo of Daddy with both as well...

Lilli said to me today "you're not the winner, I'm the winner". Haha. O-kay...
Here's Lilli with Pookie Bear - the huge bear that I won at the Parent and Child Show this year!
Caden is so close to giggling. he's lying in his bassinet while Lilli and I have breakfast chatting away and almost giggling. Plus I got another two smiles when I got him up.

Lilli and I did some baking this afternoon. I love having her help me in the kitchen - except when she is continually into everything with her tongue - including flour and cocoa. Hahaha.
And here we all are in the kitchen...

Weight: 11lb 7oz or 5.180kg
Head Circumferance: 38cm

Oh my gosh, I took Lilli and Caden to MacDonalds today, well Caden wasn't there to eat or anything obviously but anyway I got them both out of the car and into MacDonalds without incident and we had a great time in there, then when it was time to go home Lilli started playing up a bit. When we got outside she held my hand to cross the road but when I opened the car door to let her in she took off. I screamed at her to stop and she did and came back (meanwhile I had 'thrown' Caden's capsule into the base in the car and gotten ready to run after her). Just as I went to grab her hand she laughed and ran off again - straight across the road!!! My heart stopped. I caught her three quarters of the way across the road and I tell you I don't know who or what was smiling down on us but the road that had been total chaos all the time we were in MacDonalds miraculously had no cars coming either way at that precise moment. I tell you what though, the stress did me in and I fair smacked her butt right there in the middle of the road before marching her back to the car and practically throwing her in it. Ohh I was so furious and upset I ranted at her for a full 10 minutes before I could even drive the car. All the way home to Waiuku I cried and cried. I rang Mum and she didn't really get what I meant because I was so upset that I wasn't even making sense I think. Haha. Funny now, looking back of course - not the part where she ran across the road though - that will never be funny. :( All I could picture was her little body being thrown in the air by a car etc, etc, etc. I pray that I never have to see my or anyone's children be hurt like that.
Here's Caden sleeping anyway again... :)

Lilli was talking about wees today. She said 'it's going down in the water'. Later talking about the rain she asked Brian 'it fires down in the water aye?' and then she's like 'yeah and there was a rainbow'. Out of the mouths of babes...

The cute little outfit that Dad and Trish got him in Aussie.

Today I said to Lilli 'You've got tired eyes baby. Are you tired?' and she replied 'No. I've got beautiful eyes. They not black.'. Hahaha. I'm always telling her that she's got beautiful eyes so I guess saying they were tired was a bit of an insult? Did she mean black because of tyres? Hmmm :)
Caught a smile on camera with my phone!
'Watching TV' together - Caden is actually watching his toys. Although I have to say he is rather fascinated with the TV!
