A little piece of England.....

We had a wonderful wonderful time in England!
I have lots of exciting stories and photos to share.
But to wet your appetite here is a little (long) video of Harrison playing Sir Robin Hood at Arundel Castle.
It was the highlight of the trip.

Harrisons turn...

For the goose egg Head!!
He took his step stool, put it on top of the ottoman and tried to sit on it. Yeah accident waiting to happen. Just as Daddy Matt said something he fell. He has a cut right by his eye. He fell on the steps legs as it turned upside down. It was very very close To his eye!!

Allister Update.

I thought it was about time I did an update on my little man! He is so adorable right now, and I have been so busy this summer that I don't have much time to blog. Matt is also working a lot of hours lately, so we've been tired and busy!

So Allister is now 17 months old.
He has been getting a lot of teeth lately, and he is really not dealing with it well. And therefore neither am I :(
He is cutting molars, finally! 3 have broke through and 1 is on its way, together with the missing side tooth from his bottom set. I may even see the beginnings of his pointy teeth too. So all in all he has been a grumpy baby! He has also had a slight cold, some kind of virus (we think) that keeps gicing him hives. Although we are watching to make sure its not a food allergy.
So most nights he wakes up screaming, and I don't mean just screaming, I mean SCREAMING!!!!! Like the world is coming to an end screaming, he wakes up the whole house. And maybe next door too. Im surprised the police have not been called.
This happens at least once a night, maybe 3 or 4 times. I try not to pick him up because I don't want that habit, and he settles pretty quick once I appear. I lay on the floor beside the crib and he settles down back to sleep. I try to sneak out and hear a little whisper "Mumeeeee" caught red handed! So I lay some more, until I then fall asleep on the floor!
Its no fun, and Im hoping once this last molar breaks through he will stop suffering, and we can all get some sleep.

On a brighter note, he is talking up a storm!
His latest list of words added to the first list are.....

Eyes, Up, Arm, Soap -bup
Wash, Sign potty, More
Nooooo- this is a favorite!!!!!
Yes, Tea, Juice, Cup,
Hat, Teeth, Fish, Hi
Trash, Bah Bye, Birdi, Buzz, Woody,
Tweet tweet, Whoo whoo owl,
Choo choo, Buzzzzz buzzzzz for bee,
Grape - bup, Soap sup, Trash, Pop (as in lolly)
Cup - dup, Pool, Drum, Phone
Uh oh, Peepee, Cat, Duck, Jump,
Arm, Tummy, Nose, Eyes, Umi zoomi,
Bubble guppies (buba buba)
Tee for TV

I know Ive missed lots here, he's got to the stage now where I lose track he is saying so much. I love it! He has also started saying a few two word sentences, like "Hot Tea!" just like Harrison.

He can point to several body parts, Arm, Toes, Nose, Eyes, Head, Hands, Tummy.

He loves the word NO! and says it so cutely, in his little squeaky voice :)

We love our little man!
