The latest in our household

Once again time has flown and I haven’t written a post for ages – Callum is over 9 months old – wowsers!  So what’s been happening…

We recently went on holidays to Victoria to visit James’ family and go to Callum’s cousin’s first birthday party (that’s a mouthful).  We had a great time catching up with family and friends, plus a random coincidence: our lovely previous neighbours returned to Melbourne recently and we’d planned a catch up.  We were also intending to meet up with some old uni friend’s of James’ in Melbourne.  While organising these catch ups we discovered that our old neighbours live two doors down from James’ uni friends.  Seriously ridiculous.  Of all the streets in Melbourne!  We also had a delightful stay down at Ocean Grove on the coast and spent a few days in Ballarat with James’ family.  Good times!  The difficult part of the trip – the three hour time difference from WA to Victoria was pretty hard for Callum and we had a lot of night time settling angst.  A lot.

In other news, Callum stood up on his own for the first time the other day – in the bath the cheeky little monkey!!  He has also experienced daycare for the first time and is coping quite well with that.  In not so exciting news, the poor little dude has had his first nasty illness – pneumonia.  He is currently on antibiotics to help fight that one off.

James and I are both trying to get in some fitness fun too – he is back on the AFL Umpiring train and I have put my hand up as a fill in player for the most awesome Coastal Titans and have started back at yoga again.  Aaah, yoga.  Its tricky getting to these evening activities on time given that’s also when we’re trying to feed, bath and do bedtime for Callum, but we’re working on it 🙂

Since my last post we’ve also squeezed in a relaxing long weekend at Leeman (little fishing town north of Jurien), James had a work trip to Houston and I headed to Albs with Callum to hang with the fam while James was away.  Its been go, go, go!

Oh and our current trash TV series – MKR!  Some of those contestants drive me nuts though – anyone other MKR tragics know what I’m talking about??
