30/12/08 - Oh my goodness, look how little Penny looks too! And look at his little skinny legs!
And so, the year has flown past, a year that has been riddled with ups and downs - the biggest down being trying to manage Tim's reflux while juggling a toddler that still needed her Mummy. Tim's reflux was a 8 month ordeal for all of us and now that it's pretty much gone (I'm not saying 100% as we still have instances of reflux like reactions from Timothy) and we've been left with a deliciously contented and easy going fellow - phew!
Today, we started the day with presents in bed, a family tradition on the Greaney side. We had my mum, sister and niece visit today with lovely gifts and stay for lunch. A birthday cake was devoured and candles blown out.
And can I just say, if you know of people who say that they have a Christmas baby, can you PLEASE not say 'oh, poor thing' rather something more along the lines of 'oh how wonderful/how lucky'. You'd probably be one of the first - but also, it really is a lovely time of the year to celebrate a birthday in NZ.
In our household Blair was home all day as work finished up for the year yesterday, the weather is stunning - perfect for going to the park or beach, people are in a reasonably good mood due to Christmas, and few people would actually forget the birthday/birthdate as they might if it was a normal date.
We wouldn't change a thing about our Timothy, we know he is an absolute gift (did I mention he snuggles in when you say 'hug' and does kissing lips when you say 'kiss' - awww).
