APOLOGIES RIGHT NOW... this is a massive photo heavy post.... and I will no doubt add more during the day!
So... having four babies in the house means one is constantly bombarded with noise. If one is quiet ... someone else isn't.
My god... imagine having triplets or more! I used to think that would be awesome.
NOW... I think not!
I had planned on having Mike and Joyce sleep in the lounge, but reconsidered that and now they are in the garage... in the 'sewing' area. They will get less noise down there, even with Griffin and Joshua for company! ha ha.
I took some photos of Dante yesterday that I want to share, I took about 40... but will ONLY show ya 5! *smiles*
ABOVE: see why I only posted 5? They were all utterly gorgeous, so I have to restrain myself.
I want to put Bodhi and Keera in the bucket too... might try that today... if I get time.
Keera was supposed to be seeing her Father today at Sylvia Park, but he cancelled, so I can stay home and meet Bex's relatives.
Bex is expecting two of her brothers, her Dad's fiance and a couple of her step-sisters this morning. They are coming up to meet Dante.
I hope to get some photos of them all.
I got a lovely e-mail from one of our puppies Mum's last night... Miss Molly got her first full grooming and now she looks like this:
ABOVE: how cute is she. She is fully house trained, AND sits and lies down on command too! I think Teddy and Coco should go and stay with Tracy for a month! Maybe she can teach them to sit too ... LOL
And NOW... let's have a few more photos from yesterday ... and when Mike and Joyce arrived:
So I 'saved' her from her cousin's loving.
Right, Mike and Joyce arrived bang on time, and came home to meet everyone... Steve and Bex said Dante had just gone to sleep, so Mike could only look at the baby...
ABOVE: yep, so there is Mike just 'looking'... Pfffft! Steve then butted in and picked up the baby and handed him to his Uncle Mike!
ABOVE: Mike didn't mind. All my son's dote on babies!
ABOVE: Mike and Joyce have a cluck, meanwhile Dante just carried on sleeping.
ABOVE: *sniff, sniff*... my three sons. Left to right, youngest to eldest! Mike (23), Steve (25) and Russell (29).
Here she is meeting her Uncle Mike for the first time...
Yes Lacy, your daughter WAS up at 11.30 pm ... Shoot me now! nah nah na na!
ABOVE: this photo almost made me cry. I haven't seen my Stew this happy in a very long time.
We are going to have a very special time now, with so many of our kids here... and all the babies... I'm in seventh heaven. Well... when they aren't screaming that is. *smiles*
HA! It's 'only' got 21 photos so far! That's not too bad!...
No one gets to sleep in with babies in the house! We were the lucky ones though. Keera sleeps all night. *smiles*
ABOVE: Steve playing with Sienna before she went off to the beach.
ABOVE: Bex's visitors arrived, here she is with her Dad's Fiance Glenda ... so that makes her kinda her Step-Mum I think, and her step-sister Tash. There was, also in the background somewhere, Tash's partner Jessie, he stayed out of the photos.
They gave her and Steve some gorgeous gifts for Dante...
ABOVE: which included this stunning cot set. So, so gorgeous... makes the one I made look a bit garish! (as in bright and in ya face!)
ABOVE: Glenda getting her first cuddle with Dante... it brought tears to quite a few eyes, even mine. I think everyone was thinking the same thing... wishing Noel (Bex's Dad) was here to meet Dante too.
ABOVE: Tash did a 'ME' and took a whole heap of photos too! She's got a Canon... that is what I want one day. *sigh*
Maybe I should set up a 'Canon' savings account! Then when I'm 85 I can get me one. lol
Tash and Jessie have gone off into the city for a while, leaving Glenda here to have a nice visit with Bex.
*** PEPSI UPDATED *** PEPSI UPDATED *** PEPSI UPDATED ***
It took 13 days... but it did finally happen!
I'm sitting on the couch holding wee Dante, who is stirring, with a nappy on... when I feel warm liquid running down into my lap and trickling down to me knickers... I'm like... What the hell? Then it dawns real quick, Dante is piddling out the side of his nappy... all over ME! OMG... even with a nappy on that boy can christen someone!
*shaking me head*...meanwhile, his MOTHER is cracking up laughing at me!
I gave that wee man right back to his Mum I can tell you!
For a start, I was all WET and needed to go change MY KNICKERS. It's not often that you wet your pants, and it's not even your own piddle! Thanks Dante. Grandma loves you.
GLENYS: HA! As if. No one spoils me at all. I can't remember the last time I got a foot rub... or anything like that. I'm Chief Cook and Housekeeper, and Stew is my off-sider.
We will get a break and some time off once everyone has gone home again!
End of Day: it's been another long, busy day.
It was a lovely day weatherwise too.. and tomorrow? It's supposed to rain again.
