I'm going to try and update this more often, yes! I know that some people are reading, even if hardly anyone comments these days.

- Toby is 5.750kg and he's 6 weeks tomorrow. He's a proper chubby baby already, and I'm having a hard time keeping all his creases dry and sweat free. He has a fat crease in the middle of his forearm. It's incredible. It must be hard to keep yourself clean if you're morbidly obese, I'd never thought of that before.

- Speaking of Toby, I forgot to mention that he was cast as an extra in an episode of Offspring! That was fun to go do. I don't watch the show at all, but it is rather popular here. They sent out a call for newborns, and Toby was 3 weeks at the time. In between the time of casting to the time of filming (like, 4 days) Toby grew heaps, so when we went to film, he was like, twice the size of all the other babies hahaha

There was a little baby green room on set, with a midwife, change tables etc. Toby was just going to be a baby in the nursery at the hospital, but it was interesting seeing all the other babies there - there were a couple of babies whose mums were so obviously stage mums, or mums who were dancers/models/actors (OMGTRIPLETHREAT). We got called on set, and I was wandering through the warehouse, turned a corner, and BOOM I WAS IN A HOSPITAL. It was bizarre. I didn't recognise any of the actors, except it was obvious which ones they were because they were SO MUCH BETTER LOOKING THAN EVERYONE ELSE.
The camera man took a liking to Toby, and actually filled out his little name/info card on the hospital crib with Toby's actual details, so that's on set forever :)

Toby didn't have to do anything but lie there and be a baby, and that was it. Really glamorous. But hey, he gets paid! It's episode 3 of Season 4 that he'll be a part of.

- Speaking of nebulous claims to fame, I was looking at the Season 3 casting spoilers for Teen Wolf, and a girl named Adelaide Kane has been cast as some sort of 17 year old mysterious werewolfy person. I used to tutor her in mathematics when she won her 3 month stint on Neighbours from Dolly Magazine, oh about 6 or so years ago! I had no idea she pursued acting any further because well, they didn't renew her contract on Neighbours. She was also awkward as hell, and also in the middle of that special teenage time where you have crippling self doubt and a gigantic ego all at once? She used to use me as an agony aunt because no one else on set liked her :\ Anyway, she seemed to have grown up mega hot and I'm pleased for her, and I hope she gets to make out with Tyler Hoechlin.

- I got to watch The Hobbit all by myself and I spent the time feeling super weird like I had left my handbag behind or something - turns out it was just Toby I had left. Also, I was wearing contacts so I could put the 3D glasses on, and that made me feel weird because I was always pushing up my non existent glasses. I loved The Hobbit because it actually felt like someone just put a fantasy book on screen. Like, they didn't care about making it into a movie with a build up and a climax and emotional beats or whatever, it meandered, like a fantasy book does. Like, Tolkien decides to put a friggin song in the middle of his text, so they put it in the movie. It was great. Also really comforting to be back in Middle Earth, I must say.

- I'm powering through what seems like every Sterek fic on AO3 (and damn there are a lot). I think I'm just reading it because it's hot. I generally tend to like pairings who are really obviously SUPER BEST FRIENDS AND WILL DIE FOR EACH OTHER OMG like Merlin/Arthur and Sherlock/John, or enemy pairings like OMG I HATE YOU SO MUCH BUT WE'RE ALIKE YOU AND I HOW CAN I EVER OVERCOME ALL OUR OBSTACLES, like Mulder/Krycek and Harry/Draco. I find Stiles/Derek to be a bit wishy washy, where the bond or the hate has to be manufactured in the fic. Having said that, I don't tend to have an OTP, I'm happy to ship members of my main pairings with other people, but the idea of Stiles or Derek with anyone else kind gives me the creeps.

- I managed to go to the supermarket with both Liam and Toby and do a decent shop so I pretty much feel like a super competent mother at this point. Even if Liam kept sneaking random things into the trolley while I wasn't looking. It wasn't stuff he wanted, just stuff that he could reach.

- Okay Toby's waking up now gtg.

I've been cutting dairy from my diet because Toby is reflux-y, to see if it helps. It's been making me a bit miserable, because everything I eat, seems to have dairy in it, but I've been doing okay.

(I mean, corn chips have dairy wtf)

Liam asked for a smoothie just now, so I made him one then took a great big swig of it without thinking AND ALL THAT WORK IS NOW UNDONE BOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOOO
