6 months

Aden Henry you are such a big boy now. I watch you change before my very eyes everyday!

It was just a matter of days between a rolly-polly baby and a crawling boy! That's right at just a few days short of 6 months Aden crawled! It started with comando crawling, at 5.5 months, where he would drag himself along (proving just how very dirty the floors were/are) to get what ever it is that was just out of his reach.

Happy Australia Day!

I used to dread Australia it ment back to work day...not this year! DH returns to work tomorrow after 7 (looong) weeks Aden and I can get back into more sewing time without feeling guilty about the neglected housework!
I hope all those littlies going to school for the first time tomorrow have a wonderful day...I imagine in a few short years I'll be sad sending Aden off to school!

Just a quick one of my little Aussie kid!
