A whole month without blogging. My bad.

I'm full of excuses (of course), but really, I'm lacking inspiration. That'll change soon I'm betting!

A recap of our last month:

Thomas got rotavirus. It was naaaasty. He was off care for a week! He's then eaten us out of house and home for the last two weeks, but finally seems to have settled down again!

We went to Hamiton for a long weekend, and it was SO SUNNY! All my Wellington buddies were not impressed when I rubbed in how much SUN we saw :)

Thomas has been to two zoos in one week! Hamilton and Wellington! He loves animals (said an-i-mals by him, hilarious!), especially monkeys, elephants and meercats. Giraffes, not so much!

And loooooves jumping on the trampoline. We stayed with friends who had one, and he spent hours out there. Needless to say, we're hoping to get him one for Christmas.

OMG how is it almost Christmas!

A wee operation

Our wee man is having a wee operation today, to remove a malformed vein smack bang in the middle of his forehead (and they're also snipping his tongue tie while they're in there).

Thomas was born with an odd malformed vein in his head - it looks like three little blue ink spots, right in the middle of his head. Many people ask if he's drawn on himself, or if he's whacked his head on something. It changes from time to time, gets bigger, gets raised etc, but the point is, it doesn't go away. It isn't a birthmark that'll fade in time.

So we made the decision to have it removed. Mainly because its unpredictable and they don't know what it will do. If he hits his head, they don't know if it'll bleed. They don't know if it'll just keep growing as he grows. They really don't know much about it at all!

We're off to hospital at 9 am, and hope to be home by lunchtime!

Wish us luck xx

Oh blog, how I've neglected you

I've been a terribly unreliable blogger lately, I do apologise. No excuses, I'm just lacking inspiration!

Watch this space :)
