20 Week Scan!!

We were at the hospital today for Lisa’s 20 week scan…..

Say Hello



Ugly Bug Ball

Sunday 21st March 2004
We have had another busy week, Daddy is still learning on his Scuba Diving course which is taking up his free evenings, so we are only getting to update this on Sunday at the moment. 
Today is Mother’s day and so the children had cards and flowers at the ready for Mummy this morning to wish her Happy Mother’s Day.  Also they made her breakfast of Melon and Orange Juice.  Her main present she had had the day before when Daddy worked all day to lay the new flooring in the kitchen.  Looks very good now says Mummy. 
Scott has been entertaining us with his new song, the Ugly Bug Ball which he debuted at the hospital entertaining Aunty Lindsay.  He has also performed it for camera and at the Siswicks.  Mummy can’t help show him off and thankfully he doesn’t get too embarrassed, just yet anyway. The video clip is available for download as an mp4 clip.  Elizabeth has also been joining in copying his actions and Emily is now learning Wind the Bobbin Up. 
We have been trying to stop Elizabeth from whining so much at the moment.  She has admitted that she pretends as she has been teaching Mummy how to whine.  It is very funny to watch. 
Scott has learned how to do buttons this week, so he can now do up and undo his shirt buttons etc..   there’s no stopping him now!!!
Anyway that is our short update for this week.  More next week….

Saturday 31st January 2004
On Friday we had a surprise visitor in that Grandma B turned up at the house, turned out she had been staying with Aunty Lindsay and Uncle Gary for a few days as Aunty Lindsay had not been very well.  The children were so tired though from a lot of playing that they could hardly keep their eyes open to say hello before they flaked out to bed, although Emily did get a second wind and came back downstairs for a bit to play before going off to bed again.
Also Nikki stayed with us overnight as she babysat all the children while Mummy and Daddy went to the temple on Saturday morning.  While at the temple Nikki took all three to serendipities and McDonalds, I think Scott and Elizabeth talked her into that.  When we came back from the temple they were excited to show us “Grandma C is here as well”.  Two surprise visitors in two days how lucky.  She had baked cookies with them while we were out.  Yummy!!

Tuesday 27th January 2004.
The morning started with Elizabeth pushing Daddy out of bed and sending him off to work, she wanted his space in bed.  Of course this was the one morning that Emily had slept in.  She then asked if it was time for breakfast, mummy replied no not yet, Scott isn’t even awake yet.  To which she jumped out of Mummy and Daddy’s bed, thrust open Scott’s bedroom door, and solved that problem.  The children at the moment are having very creative breakfasts.  There is no need to choose just one type of cereal when you can have them all.  Elizabeth’s favourite, Fruitabix and Shreddies, Scott’s Cheerios and Crunchy Nut Cornflakes.  Emily enjoys shreddies at the moment, but only from Elizabeth’s bowl.  Mummy likes a cooked breakfast, but you can’t have everything you want in life.
Elizabeth also enjoys her mid-morning snack after dropping Scott off at Chatterbox; Hot Chocolate and Biscuits whilst watching teletubbies.  It’s a hard life for some folk! 
Scott has started swimming lessons, he is now on his third lesson and was complemented by the teacher on, not only how good he is in the water but how patient and kind he is with the other children.  There are definitely benefits to having younger siblings.  Watching him today, we can see how much he loves the water, having confidence without armbands. He went so fast on his back that the teacher could hardly catch up. 

That’s it for today….
