Long time, no see.

I Neil found it- the cable that is, hiding in plain sight, where we had both looked for it many times. I blame the kids. It could never be my bad looking skills, now could it?? So now that I have access to my photos again, I have gone a bit mad. Lucky you!

Here we are at Mum's on Easter Saturday. It was lovely. Now we are inside with the fire going and rain outside. Never mind.
In case you haven't noticed, we have one walking toddler in the family. We're all very excited, but not as excited as Luke is. Look out world!
And just to prove that he really is a big boy now, he has moved into a bed. I have left the cot up, just in case, but he hasn't looked back. Such a good boy. I had talked to lots of people who have kids with DS and can't keep them in bed, and had myself all worked up that it was going to be a difficult transition. Of course Luke went to sleep and stayed in his bed all night. No problem. One of these days I will learn that these things are a personality issue and not a DS issue! I will save myself a lot of worry. Ben was the one who wouldn't stay in his bed, but he went into a bed because he was climbing out of his cot in the first place, so that was no surprise!
Luke the musician, with his sister the dancer.
Nana's new kitten Millie, who is recovering from an excess of child love over Easter.
Luke is just the latest of our children to discover the cat's bed is a great place to sit. Mostly because there is an electric blanket under it!
No he is not enrolled in ballet lessons...
...but I think this cheeky monkey has out grown his parallel bars!
And yes I do clean him regularly!
I just love this guy!

He's just so cute. Especially love all the grubby T-shirts, active, fun little boy pictures (brings back memories). Well done Luke, so many exciting new skills!

I don't believe you clean Luke! Just joking Mel! To Luke: what a big boy you are now. You are standing so tall and proud on your Nana's deck and you look so super cute in your bed.
