3 and a half months old
Well this week has been slower since having the Kayberry's gone. Back to work and life as usual.
We went to help drop the Kayberry's off on Saturday and decided to leave early so we could go to the Aquarium called 'Kelly Taltons' in Auckland. We thought the kids would love it. But we didn't make it. The car Dru and I were driving decided to pack it in and die on us. The alternator went out. So lucky for us Dru was driving and got up parked up at a petrol station in Auckland. There happend to be a mini van taxi that was filling up at the station so Lenoard went up to him and asked if he could take the rest of their luggage and other passenger to the airport. He said great and they were off. We said bye and were happy they just made it to the airport. Mum and Pete are members of AA which is like triple A in USA and they came out and told us what we knew. It was the alternator. They said they could tow the car down to Tok with all of us for $560. So mum decided to send my brother up in the camry and we swaped battries all the way back to Tok. We had the walkie talkies and had a great time. We swapped it three times on the way down and had lots of fun talking amongst each other with the walkie talkies. So what ended up being a bad situation turned out pretty fun. While we were waiting for my brother we had fish and chips and got to meet this girl my brother, Haydn, met at the YSA conference. She's really nice, go Haydn. Anyway that was a bit of fun. It's all fixed now and running. Thanks to Pete and mum. This week Dru helped Llewellyn finish the outside BBQ area. It looks great. I'll take a picture of it. We've had Sarah's kids for two days, so that's been exciting. We just got back from the pools. They had a practice fire drill and we had to rush outside in our togs and wait for them to do an inspection. All the kids were worried. I kept telling them it's not real, and their clothes would be fine, the pools weren't going to burn down!!
Nothing too much else has been happening. So I thought I'd just take some close ups of Yuki so you can get a good look of her. She's doing great. She's eating around 5 times a day and sleeping 12/13 hours at night. She's giggling a lot and loves company. She's quite white. I can't remember Masaru being that white, not that he wasn't, I just can't remember. Her hair is still dark, so we'll see if it sticks. Her eyes are still very blue, so we'll see if that sticks as well. She's half rolling from her back to front. She almost makes it rolling left but not yet. It looks like it'll be soon. She's starting to reach out for things to play with and hold things.
Sorry no pic's of Masaru. He doesn't change as fast as Yuki though so one week without pic's of him should be alright. We're considering giving him a haircut. I've been contemplating styles. So maybe that will be one of next weeks pictures.
Love you guys
