On the road to recovery...

I just had to share this cute photo of Harry. He has recently become obsessed with wearing sunglasses everywhere...including the bath. So this morning he was adamant he wanted to wear his glasses in "the bubbles". As you can see he is well on the road to recovery, although at this stage we are still steering clear of playgroup and childcare until both boys are cleared by the doctor. We have had 2 1/2 weeks of virtual isolation, but somehow we have survived (grin). All of a sudden my baby boys are really growing up - they love having their little boxes of toys in the loungeroom and then they pack them up before heading off to bed. Harry is a much more willing participant in tidying up - Mitch requires constant encouragement. Harry is so funny he now praises himself - I will find him packing up a puzzle saying to himself "good boy Harry. Well done". This is such a fun stage - the boys want to communicate and are very sociable.

It is now less than 2 weeks until the boys' birthday - hard to believe they will be three years old. We are hoping that they will be medically cleared so their party can go ahead. But regardless we are sure they will have an absolute ball...

Hoping everyone is coping with the cold and wet...
Hugs,
Lisa

lol! love the photo.
It's so cute when they say things to themselves that we say to them.
Mine all did it too.
Adam used to say to me, after he started toilet training and would see ME on the toilet, "Good boy Mummy!"

Hi Lisa,
I just wanted to 'de-lurk' to tell you that I've been following your blog for a while. I've also really appreciated your comments on preemie-l, you always have intelligent, respectful posts which have been very helpful and informative. So...thanks. I'm glad that your family is on the mend, and I hope that all is well. Have a great day today.
