So, hopefully you'll see more blogging from me.
7 month shot (Isaac was falling forward)They are now 7.5 months. Crazy. Ailah is on the move, commando crawling and rolling, I cannot keep her still. Each time I go away from her she tries her hardest to come after me. She's only just started this, so doesn't get very far, but each time she gets further away from the mat! The boys are both sitting up so good! We only have about 1 topple over each a day, and Ailah is also starting to get there, but she prefers to commando crawl rather than sit still.
We had our first swimming lesson a few weeks back. My fantastic nanny, Anita, and my mum, Di, were there to help and my step dad, Kerry was on the sidelines using the camera and the video camera - it was quite funny - he looked like a tourist with all the straps around his neck!
They actually weren't as in to it as I thought they would. They all love their bath time, especially Ailah who has to have one by herself as she goes crazy and splashes the boys. Don't get me wrong, they liked it, but I thought I'd see more smiles and splashes. Next time.

We spent Easter weekend together as a family which was lovely. Good Friday in the park having a BBQ with friends. Family shot a must. Too bad Daniel has his eyes closed!
They're all on 3 meals a day now, and loving it. This is what oatmeal and mashed banana looks like.
And Dylan pulling a funny face while eating some steamed carrot. I'm doing half Baby Led Weaning and half spoon feeding. I like some of the concepts to BLW but don't agree that milk should be their main source of nutrients up to 12 months. So they generally have finger foods before being spoon fed, and more and more often there is less finger food to clean up. It is also great for their fine motor skills.
But still getting boobs 5-6 times a day! Piglets!
They won't fit in the trolley like this much longer! Our local Woolies is looking into getting a trolley made up that can fit all 3!
Ailah loves doing strange things with her tongue!
I got to go and watch Amali at her dance class a few weeks ago. She was beautiful. And was the only one who listened and did everything her teacher asked - the whole time. I was super proud!
And I've been managing to get in some work with the horses! Here is my little filly with me on her back for the fist time. She's such a quiet little thing. Again I was super proud!
And Miss Amali now gets a weekly ride (trying to give her more, but it's hard!), Kerry has finished putting the roundyard up so she'll soon be able to ride off the lead in there. She even told me this morning that she had a dream that she rode all by herself in the roundyard. Too sweet!
And with all the wet weather we've been having (thankfully gone now) I found this fella in the horse feed. Luckily I din't just put my hand in there like normal. It's a Coastal Python, non venomous and it wasn't aggressive either. The kids thought it was pretty cool.
Lastly, my awesome soccer boy Jordan scored a goal today - and saved two others by slide tackling!
