Last week of February
We only realized after they left that Hezekiah has all four eye teeth pushing through at the same time. So no wonder we did not have the normal happy face for the photos.
He will still smile for his baby sister though and I got these lovely photos later that day. You can see how much cooler it was today. She was just in a vest last night but is bundled up today (and these photos were taken at midday).
Saturday 23 Feb. Asher enjoying a bath with me. I just love how new born babies naturally just turn their heads to get their ears (and sometimes eyes) into the water. They did spend 9 months in water - so it must be very familiar to listen to everything in that context again.
I had to laugh at Hannah wanting Brendon to take this photo today. She stood sideways (just like I did through the pregnancy to show my "bump"). She must think this is the way you pose for a photo. :-)
Monday 25 Feb: Brendon saw the homeopath again today to get a new remedy to try and stop the migraines from happening again. When he saw her ages ago for the first time she picked a perfect remedy at that stage as he did not have any headaches for so many months (and she got rid of his heart burn too). So things have obviously changed since then and a different remedy is needed.
I did not want to have a long afternoon / evening on my own (with him going straight to the appointment after work) so we organized to visit the Fawcettes. Brendon dropped us off on his way and we had a lovely visit with them. Hezekiah just loved this tractor as well as the big go-cart (although I did not get a photo - it was so sweet looking at his happy face sitting playing with the steering wheel).
Paulette had graciously invited us to have tea with them so that we did not have to "eat on the road" as we travelled home. It was quite a site watching her dish up for 16 people (they have 7 children and there was an extra visitor with one of the boys).
Rachel enjoyed watching two new horses being unloaded (their owners are immigrating).
All dressed up for a wedding. Doesn't Ruth look so good with that hat on. :-)
Wednesday 27 Feb: Enjoyed BBQ Pork Chops this evening and decided that perhaps instead of cutting Hezekiah's up we would just give him the whole thing. He always loves chewing on the bones and gets all the extra bit of meat off them - and this worked really well. It actually managed to slow him down a bit (as he normally just shovels the pieces of meat in as he loves meat so much).
