Well its been a while now hasnt it???!

So sorry I havent updated in so long! There are two reasons...firstly, I was waiting until our broadband came back so I could upload some pics, but its still a few days away - so I will post them in the new year, and secondly - we have just been to busy!!

Lets see now, we'll start with daycare. Thats been a bit of a hit and miss really. we went three times a week for two weeks, and I stayed for every session. Jason FREAKS if I even LOOK in the other direction, let alone go for the door! Its weird - cos when we're out and about he loves new people and places, but for some reason daycare wigs him out. Either hes a bit psychic and knows its an 'abandon babies place', or all the other kids and the noise puts him off. Im betting its option b. Anyway, daycare starts back up on the 8th of december, and I think im just going to have to bite the bullet and leave him there. I thought it should have been done last week, but daycare thought there was no point as a two week break was about to start. Fair'nough I suppose.

MERRY CHRISTMAS!!!!!!! J's first proper Christmas since his last one happened when he was only four weeks old. (incidently, Christmas day was Jasons due date - thank goodness he was nearly a month early! (and still managed to come in at 3.5 kilos!!!!). So anyway, Christmas was a bit of a bust. Both Chris and J had terrible headcolds, although J put on a brave face and still managed to charm the whole family. We suffered for it on the drive home though...he screamed half way from Rotorua to Putaruru.

And now were approaching New Years and its still the same story. Both Chris and J have terrible headcolds, although I took J to the Doc today and his lungs, ears, throat and temp are all fine. Hes basically just a big snot ball with periodic crankiness. We're still umming and arring about whether or not we should go to the Mount for new years. We might just stay home until both J and Chris are fully mended....and today my throat started to hurt :(

Oh well - there are many with far worse ailments! This Christmas we thank God for our beautiful, charming, clever and gorgeous son, our lovely little house and each other.

Oh yeah, theres been an exciting development!!! Jason has been saying Muma, dada and bubba for a while now, but we dont count them as words cos he doesnt know what they mean, and all babies learn these basic sounds first. BUT, the day before yesterday he very clearly said 'up'. I know he doesnt know what it means, but out of all the sounds he makes, this is the only one that is unmistakenly an actual english word!!!! Hes been saying 'up' heaps since the first utterance and everytime he does i pick him up and say 'up' as well. Also, when I lift him for any reason I say it. We'll have him understanding in no time! There are actually several words that Jason clearly does understand.
He understands that Jason, J and baby all mean 'hey you!'.
He knows that 'bottle' means milk and 'juice' means 'wanna drink'?
He knows daddy is daddys name, and he knows that 'wheres daddy'? means Dads home! lets run to the garage to meet him!
Im pretty sure he understands 'toast', 'cuddle' and he definately understands 'No'!

I cant wait for him to start speaking in complete sentances. So many times throughout the day he flashes you this incrediably cheeky grin and I would LOVE to know what hes thinking when he smiles like that. I think hes going to have a great sense of humour. Sometimes he gives this really slow grin and looks you dead in the eye, as though hes laughing at an in joke the two of you have. That grin usually happens at night after hes thrown a wobbly and hes calmed down enough to appreciate you being there. My mother says its a victory smile cos hes just gotten his own way. Shes probably right!! LOL

He also has two new teeth popping through, one on the top on the right side, and one on the bottom on the left side. that makes 10 teeth in total - which is great, cos its nice to have teeth, but its also bad, cos he LOVES to bite. And he bites with no warning, it just comes out of the blue. he bit his dads upper arm while we were in the Warehouse yesterday. Poor guy nearly shout 'F**K' at the top of his lungs in the middle of the shop! We are doing our best to discourage the biting, but its early days yet.

OK, ive rambled enough. The next post will be nothing but pictures to make up for it, I promise!!!
