A Photo a Day While Daddy's Away 4

Originally uploaded by Crit Chicken
Two boys on the sofa, looking solemn, but at least Erik's not screaming. He was, but I managed to snap him when he wasn't. D'Arcy is going to his dad's tonight, as his dad is getting married tomorrow (I know, on a Friday). D'Arcy is very excited - he gets to wear a suit and look after the rings, and he gets to see his Adelaide grandmother.

My mum has been here, and we've made a big mess in the guise of cleaning things up getting ready for Grandma Joyce to come. It is very good.

Also in the good category - Erik has been asleep for 2½ hours this morning. Showing some signs of waking up soon, but not there yet. So I've been looking through cooking magazines for nice things to eat over the next week and a half. Lots of fish.

Ooh, Erik is making his "I'm waking up" squeaky noises.

D'Arcy is getting so big!

Erik is the cutest thing - I can say that, having never heard him scream. ;-)

I was thinking of recording it and posting it on the blog, but haven't figured out the tech side of posting yet. I can do all the recording bit fine. I have to say that he can even be cute when he screams - he gets a little dimple on his right cheek,and sometimes his mouth turns down at the corners and he says "wah" just like the stereotype.

D'Arcy is getting big - I guess he was only 3 or 4 when you met him. He's still on the small side for his age though, and close to underweight (I've been looking at the height and weight charts in the back of the blue book).

Wow! Big wedding year in D'Arcy's life!

Yes, it is! I think he's handled it pretty well.
