His first real accident

That bastard of a dangerous highchair finally did it! This morning just after breakfast while I was putting Caelan's bowl in the sink I heard a horrible BANG THUD, followed by blood curdling screaming and crying. God I nearly died when I turned and didn't see Caelan or his highchair. I was there before I could think and found him still in the seat and table part of the chair on it's side on the floor. It had all fallen off the legs. I couldn't undo the lock as he had been really jammed against it in the fall and the table part had gone up too far in the opposite direction. I was so scared and just wanted to get him out and cuddle him but couldn't. It was sooooo frustrating! He was screaming the whole time and not moving - I was terrified things were broken, it looked like his arm was broken as it was jammed under the seat in a horrid position. I had to push him a bit and then finally was able to undo the lock and pull him out. My poor, poor little boy! I held him so tight and bawled my head off while saying "Sorry" over and over and over. Nothing was broken and when he finally calmed he was fine. His arm that was jammed was pretty red and swollen looking, had a red bit above one eye and the bottom leg was pretty red. It could have been so much worse, I'm so glad he's ok. Bastard highchair! It's lucky that it's raining today, otherwise there may have been a burning in the backyard! hahaha

Aside from that he's still a poobum! hehe Last night involved lots of crying and way more awake time than necessary in the middle of the night again. He's nearly lost his voice from all the screaming lately, it's all husky sounding and disappears when he's "talking". It wasn't as bad as the night before so hopefully tonight will be even better.

Argh the sleepless nights!

Surely this aint supposed to be happening again at nearly 8 months old... surely. Mummy and Daddy think so anyway!! He's been waking heaps at night and last night was absolute HELL with a completely inconsolable Caelan for most of the night from 2am to nearly 7am. ARRGGHHHHHH!!! Needless to say all three of us are totally buggered and incredibly grumpy today. Caelan's just gone down for a nap after a 40 minute screaming session, no doubt due to feeling so horrible and tired from the sleepless night. Didn't eat lunch cause it was all too hard - poor wee guy screamed as if it was the worst thing imaginable, sheesh it was only kumara. God I wish I could just chuck a fit like that - I'm sure I feel just as bad as him too now. I'm sure Chris wishes he could chuck a fit at work today too - poor thing. Please lord let tonight be better.

Such a big boy

Caelan's just not a baby anymore, before we know it he'll be moving out of home! hehe We went to Plunket on Thursday and he's now weighing in at a hefty 10.3kg. Not as heavy as we thought he'd be though which is good!

All is well in the Clark household... We had a great weekend, with swimming on Saturday followed by sushi and mango frappucino afterwards for lunch. He just LOOOVES sushi and thinks mango frappucino is the best thing in the entire world, even better than Mummy and Daddy I'm sure! On Sunday we left the house at 8:30am and were out pretty much all day, getting home in the afternoon and Caelan was such a good boy. He had a wee 30 minute power-nap at Tanya's house and that did him for the whole day - what a star!! It was a huge day for him at the Avondale markets, then to visit Tanya's and off to the Dogue de Bordeaux breeder to visit all the doggies. He loved seeing more Toa's and squeeled and giggled at them.

Playing in my brand new Exersaucer that Grandma and Granddad got me - I'm so lucky!!

Well it is Movember!

Laughing baby

He's 7 months old today and totally adorable! Click on the arrow in the middle of the pic below to make Caelan giggle! :)

Marmite monster

Scott took these photos while we were at his and CJ's place on Saturday for a BBQ. Caelan had a great time as you can see!

"I'll get your nose CJ! I'm gonna eat it! Now I'll get your tongue!"

Only reverse works

There's no going forward yet - he's still getting up on his hands and knees and rocking but that's about the extent of his crawling so far. He's just going backwards everywhere - I'm sure he'll find first gear soon. Then of course he just wont stop!

There was no swimming on Saturday so it was nice being able to just chill out and finally we could do something on Saturday evening/night! HORRAY! We usually can't do anything on a Saturday because he's already missed a sleep at swimming and all hell would break loose if he missed another one. Soooo the three of us went to friends for a BBQ - lovely jubbly (thanks CJ!).

Well it's feeding time so I'm off.

Can someone PLEASE deal to this lawn?!

Still only two teefs

He doesn't have any more than the original two but lordy, lordy the dribbling is still horrendous. I'm pretty sure we'll see some more soon. He's not as miserable with it either which is great - he's generally pretty happy, is a little more grizzly than usual but all in all pretty damned good. At least he's happy again - I hate it when he's not.

We FINALLY put his new carseat in the car on the weekend! About time, he'd been using his capsule all this time - yep we're bad parents. hahaha He loves the new seat, he really enjoys being upright and being able to see.

We just had a visit from Maria and George which Caelan loved, he thought Maria was heapsa fun! It's really nice to see him interacting with other babies.
