Naked Pig Hunting

Sorry about last weekend and not posting. We had a buzy weekend as we shifted into my sisters house. We loved the freedom at Llewellyn's and when he came home Sarah offered us to stay with her for free if I look after her kids when she needs it. So we took her up on her offer and moved in last weekend. We couldn't keep up with the payments mum was asking for at her house so decided to move out. So there's 5 kids under 5 at the Hulme household! So needs to say, the house is somewhat chaotic sometimes. But we're having fun and so far so good. It's been a week today and everyone seems to be happy with the arrangement. So we'll see how it all goes.
While we were staying at Llewellyn's we had to feed the pig he has in the back. Now Llewellyn got a free pig from a mate so he can feed it, let it grow, and have some ham this Christmas. So it's very important that the pig gets fed. So Bevin decided to clean out it's pen and Masaru just had to look, even if it means being naked. I thought it was a great shot!
On Feb 2nd Yuki did her official roll from back to front and front to back. There's no stopping her now. She's rockn and rollin all over the show. So now changing her nappy is a little harder. She chooses to sleep on her tummy 50% of the time now but sometimes gets frustrated being on her tummy still and we try to teach her she can just roll back!! She'll get it soon enough.
Masaru started kindy again and is loving it!! He's done 2 paintings so far, none on his face though Leslie!!
Dru got put on the wait list at Seattle University. So hurray for us. They'll get back to him soon if they want him. They haven't finished going through all the applicants. So they might get through and decide the do want him or we could get a call up latter on when their seats don't get filled. So we'll see. So so far 3 out of 3. 7 more schools to hear from. Looks like 2008 is our year for a lot of reasons.
The weather is beautiful and we're off today to do some climbing and swimming in Taupo at a beautiful spot Delwyn thinks he found. So I'll take some shots and we'll find out.
Love you guys

All for a good time

Seth and Tate had a face painting activity at preschool last week. Needless to say, it was a messy and wonderful time for all. A day and a half later Seth woke up with puffy eyes and a faint rash on his face. I couldn't figure out for the life of me where it came from. Later that day I suddenly had an epiphany...the face paint!! I noticed that the areas most affected was where he had concentrated the paint (i.e. his eyes). Interestingly enough, it didn't affect Tate. Oh well, it didn't seem to bother him and we treated it with a little Benedryl. We'll just have to watch out for that in the future. They look cute though!

It's official

Here I am in my new big boy car set "Cowmooflage".

Myles is huge. He went for his 4 month check up today and he is in the 95th% for weight, and 97th% for height. That translates into 18lbs. 2 oz. and 27 inches long. We are starting to move him into 6-9 month clothes and size two shoes. I'm really starting to miss the "little" baby I HAD I guess all I can say is that my child is WELL FED! Here are a few pictures from this week.

Splish splash I love taking a bath.

Especially when I get out and get all "cozy" in my hooded towel.

Here I am sitting like a big boy in my new hat from Auntie Birgitte.

Here I am having some "Tummy Time". Something I really hate, you know it's hard to hold up these big cheeks!
