I'm really going to try and update more. I don't have anything interesting to say, but I think I'll like to come back and read these in the future. I love [livejournal.com profile] starfish11's daily updates. It's just her and her everyday life and it's just lovely.

Yesterday was Adam's 30th birthday party here at home. Adam had a really good time, so I'm going to chalk it up as a success, but there were lots of things I could have done better. Adam's brother Bill burnt all the barbeque food and I left the salads inside so hardly anyone ate them. I also forgot candles for Adam's cake :( And I forgot to take photos :(

Liam refused to sleep the entire time. He did fall asleep at 8:30pm, but as soon as I set him down in his cot, BAM! eyes flew open and he was awake. The party was rather loud though. He fell asleep at about 11pm after everyone had left and slept for over 8 hours straight! I actually don't know if he did or not, because I was completely dead to the world and didn't even notice Adam coming to bed after me, so I may have slept through noises.

Other babies at the party all fell asleep at about 7:30-8:30. I was a bit jealous. One baby was in a Hug-a-bub baby carrier - similar to a Moby Wrap. She looked so snug and fell asleep. I tried it, and Liam loved it (he hated his Babyhawk Mei Tei, so who knows what the difference is) but he wouldn't sleep. I went out and bought one today ($80 for a length of fabric :\) and well, I worry that if I wear him all the time, how is he going to be independent without me? How's he going to learn how to move around and stuff? WHEN DO YOU WEAR YOUR BABIES? I do like having him in a pram when we go shopping cos he definitely falls asleep in that. I'm already being told I spoil Liam too much because I hold him all the time.

Liam's pretty much refusing to fall asleep for naps now unless he's in a car or a pram. It's driving me bonkers. We have sleep school in a couple of weeks, hopefully it's not brutal, otherwise I'm going straight home. I do hope it helps with his naps. He is so obviously tired and sleepy, he just won't... fall asleep.

OH! Liam's got a new cousin today! Adam's little sister Amy came around for his birthday last night, 5 days past her due date, and this morning she had her baby! A little boy named Hamish Edward. Or rather, a big boy, 9 pounds, 6 ounces. His big sister is a midget, so it's a bit of surprise. They're so pleased to have a boy. And Matilda, who's about 20 months, isn't as jealous as we thought she would be. First contraction at 5am, baby out by 8:24am! My MIL didn't even make it in time. Amy was even allowed to deliver it herself at the hospital. Pushed, and put her hands down and pulled him out herself.

So that's 3 boys in 9 months for our family, they'll all be in the same year level at school and we all live so close together. Hopefully they'll get along.

The Australian Grand Prix was on today. I'm still not over the disappointment that Vettel was world champion last year. Webber came a disappointing 5th so I think we're in for another shit year.

My dad built a sheltered wooden frame in his garden for his new orchid collection. He's very proud of it.

I went around to visit him today and heard a rooster sound. Dad lives in suburbia. His yard is completely paved. Apparently this little black rooster flew into Dad's backyard and liked the frame so much he uses it as a roost.

Dad can't get it to leave so he's given in and has started feeding the guy.

I have no idea where the rooster would have come from. Animals are always popping up in Dad's garden though. It's bizarre.

And that is it for photospamming for today. Sorry if I clogged up your flist.

I will post photos from the pic meme tomorrow.
