Just Because....

.... he's so cute! 
.... he looks so grown up with his new 'big boy' haircut
.... he stayed still long enough for me to get a couple of shots that were actually in focus!!





hehe... funny how we take so many things for granted though.  On Tuesday night, said cutie with the big boy haircut was outside with his dad, who was cooking on the bbq, whilst i was inside cutting up veggies with the phone wedged between shouder and ear talking to my mum  {always multi-tasking.. lol}.

Lachy opened the back door, stuck his head inside and said, with perfect clarity "is it Tuesday today mum?"  Without giving it much thought i just said "yes darling".

It was only after mum's astonished reaction that i realised, it probably isn't a typical 2 year old's question... particularly when Troy popped his head inside to say he had no idea where it came from... he hadn't said anything to him about what day it was.  He has always spoken well and from very early... all four of them have really.  So it just seemed normal to me.  So much so, that i am always amazed by all the comments i get from others about his quite adult conversational skills and clear speech.  Like i said, something i have just taken for granted.

Something i'm definately not taking for granted though is the toilet training miracle.  Three weeks ago we went from totally not getting it ... and totally not wanting to get it, to totally toilet trained in the space of a week.... so we've had over two weeks of perfect toilet habits.... dry nights and all!!  {YAAAAAYY} i guess they are just ready when they are ready!

Hope today finds you happy and cherishing the things that we take for granted...

Gorgeous photo's of your littlest man Julie. The things they say...they stun you at times. Hugo asked me the other day " Mummy do coconuts have coke inside them?"...gave me a laugh and then i thought wow that is a good question from a 4 year old...well i could see how he was thinking....have a good weekend Jules.
