Back to my usual shallow posts...

Here is D'Arcy showing off his light sabre talents. The sabre in question was his 'prize' for sleeping on his own for 3 weeks running, including when the beloved and I disappeared in the middle of the night, leaving my mum to hold down the fort, while we had a baby. I've told him that the regular supply of Pokemon cards is now at an end, and he seems cool with that. I've also told him that there is a new bed in the offing - a loft style thing with a desk underneath and drawer-steps instead of a ladder. I'm hoping that the shop where we saw them still has them. It'll free up some space in his (tiny) bedroom.

Erik is becoming a bit of a screamer, which is trying us somewhat, but as long as we get enough sleep between us we should manage to avoid selling him to the white-slavers. He's eating like a champion and putting on weight. We took him to the baby clinic for a weigh in today and he'd gained something like 700g in 2 weeks. As I was feeding him there the nurse looked at the milk gushing out of me when he pulled away at one point, and said "it's a good thing the last lady who was here can't see that!" she'd had supply problems apparently. Luckily for me and my boys that hasn't been the case. I have photos of D'Arcy at about 5 months where he's almost unrecognisable as the same child, he's so fat!

Congrats to D'Arcy for winning the prize -- and good luck getting through that screaming stage. :-(

Thanks Julie, there's a bit more to go through I guess, but I know it does end eventually - D'Arcy is proof of that. He was very pleased with his 'prize'. He chose it himself at the outset of the program, though by the time he'd got there he was worried that the shop wouldn't have them anymore. Fortunately I'd been on top of that, and bought one while they were still in stock and stashed it in the cupboard. It's the Mace Windu one, for anyone who's interested!

It's too bad he and MM are on widely separated continents. MM has three light sabers. Two of them light up and hum.

I often think things like this Liz... we're trying for a trip to the states some time, but not sure if it'd include your neck of the woods. The beloved's family are all in Minneapolis/St Paul, and his job is in Chicago, but if we are ever anywhere close by we'll let you know. In the meantime Ampersand Duck brought her Bumblebee around the other day, and they promised to return with light sabres in the nnear future. Even though B is older, he plays well with D. I love blogging!
