We went surfing today, it was awesome. We were so excited to get a morning by ourselves (Kylie's cousin was looking after Spence) that we forgot to take sunscreen....bad mistake for two redheads with white freckly skin......
We now have heads like little beetroots....I give it a day before my whole face peels off.
As well as our beetroot heads here is a pic of Spence and Ky in the pool a couple of days ago.

It's been a week of firsts for the little man. When we got to Caloundra, Kylie's cousin picked us up and the baby car seat was forward facing. First time he's been in a forward facing car seat. His first little teeth are poking through. He has had his first Weetbix and his first cow's milk. He played for the first time close up with some cute puppies and LOVED them!! All good.

He's taken to waking up at 5am and not going back to sleep at all, so that's one not so good thing. Means our days start really early!

I've been running in the mornings - bloody sweaty business in this heat and humidity. Sweat is kind of a foreign concept to me as I don't really sweat much at all usually - even if I've been to the gym or something.

We're up in Caloundra on holiday at the moment. It's hot and muggy. The little boy has been pretty good, though had a very grizzly day Jan 21st. It appears that some little teeth have poked their little heads up through his gum - explaining his grizzliness. We're still waiting for them to come right up but you can definately see and feel the little white bits. About time!
Spence has been loving swimming everyday. We've been to the beach and swimming in the pool here.

The Pute has packed it in....

My desktop computer has called it a day and I've had it carted off to hospital today. The silly thing has been dodgy since the day we got it, but it's one of those intermittent issues that goes away then comes back and build up till it stops working. I've had the warranty fix it guys out here three times now, this time, it's gone to hospital. Hopefully they can fix it all up and send it back better than ever!

Thankfully I just copied some work files I was working on to a USB just before it died! I can't access all the rest of my work stuff which is a bummer, but thankfully am about to go away for a couple of weeks anyway.
Also means i can't make the cool vid i wanted to to show you the little Spence who is crawling around like a champion! I didn't realise that they get such red, bruised looking knees....poor thing!

Gosh i wish i was a better blogger! I wish i had more time to blog about all the awesome things that are going on in the development of our little Spencer!
Yesterday he started crawling! Really crawling! He's been getting onto all fours for the last few weeks, managing to push himself in circles and backwards for the last week but yesterday he really crawled, like many 'steps' in a row and today he's off and about like a flash! Heaven help us all!
Ky and I spent alot of today rearranging our house to make it safer....we'll see about that!
He's just alot of fun right now....although his sleeping is still a bit funny, but I guess well just have to live with that.
I managed to capture him crawling on my mobile phone video and sent it to Ky at work yesterday - she said it brought tears to her eyes....ahhhhhhhhh.
Anyway, gotta go, he's demolishing the venetian blinds right now!
