12 weeks and all is well - plus Christmas 2011

We just received our 12 week scan, everything is perfect, nasal bone seen, HR 155, amniotic fluid adequate, nuchal lucency 1mm, no obvious GCA. Phew! Now a whole month's wait til 16 weeks scan ... arghhhh!

Onto Christmas 2011 ... amazing that this time next year we will have a two-and-a-half year old and a 5 month-old baby, not to forget a 14-year-old going on 20!

We didn't do a whole lot for Christmas. Rather than travel interstate for family Christmas, it was time to put down some roots and start our our family traditions, me, Bob, Willo and T-Boy. Willo has just turned 13 and he walked in last week with a newly-blonded coif - OMG! - apparently he dressed in drag for his year 7 graduation and did a hilarious dance in front of the whole school assembly (1400 students and their families). He sure isn't backwards in coming forwards our Will.

William - clearly delighted with his Christmas Gift of a World Vision sponsor child from Ecudaor.

Santa photo Christmas 2011, poor bubble was too sick to go to the shops and sit on the red-suited man. His brother made a commendable stand-in, despite Tobo looking absolutely MISERABLE!

Boxing Day 2011 at Claremont pool 
... the cousins Toby (18months), William (13), Callum (7), Turan (9), Aoife (4) and Elif (5).

Toby with Aunty Karen (mum of Callum and Aoife).

Swamped by Evil Aunties and lovin' it ... Amanda, Sally and Belinda aka Tombliboo Ooo, Tombliboo Eee and Tombliboo Unn ... yep, too much In the Night Garden

THE most evil Christmas present to give a child whose mother has a serious snake phobia. The thing hisses and moves!!!  Bet I wake up to that thing in my bed in the morning!!! Thanks Tobliboo Unn. Yes, to the left of pic, that is a book called Dress Up Your Dog (Costumes to make for your pooch) ... thanks Tobliboo Eee!
