Holiday Fun

Christmas and New Year was a great time spent sharing good times and love with family and friends. We had both sets of grandparents down and the trio were totally spoilt with all the love and attention that they received.
ince the new year has arrived we have had surgery on all 3 for grommets which was quite an event as we had to drive 500km to the hospital where the surgeon operates and then return 2 days later... thankfully the toddlers( am deliberately trying not to say babies anymore!) seemed to recover quickly and travelled well. Since teh operation you could see the difference almost immediately.. they seem to hear better and their pronunciation and new words has increased incredibly. But I truly believe selective deafness is a male trait... both boys seem to not "hear" me when I call them to do something!  Hopefully now we will have a decrease in the ear infections. Also Oliver has been given the all clear for CP... he just has low body tone and we are to push him into swimming, beach walking and trampolining to strengthen him... it hasn't held him back as he can out climb the others and out run Harrison but not Anastasia.
It is so delightful to see them chasing each other around and giggling madly. Their personalities are really developing.... Oliver loves music, dancing and singing of any kind and often serenades us with his own song as we drive. Harrison has developed a real love of books and keeps trying to get us to read every possible moment... and gets indignant when we have to say no! Anastasia loves been involved and helping anyone she can.. constantly looking to pick up things and puts them away or give them to the right person.. it is amazing that she knows exactly which clothes, toys, articles belong to everyone and will make sure that they get the right ones!
They got little tricycles for xmas as well as a water slide... it is designed for 3 and over but Daddy thought they had to have it! It was wonderful watching Anastasia just leap into climbing up and sliding down... and touching seing Harrison getting very concerned and saying "don't , don't" in very worried tones to her as he thought it was too scary... the video shows how she just loves it!

Special friends lost their little one recently and it just makes me treasure every moment with our trio.. they can be so frustrating, and we are having daily battles about things like eating, dressing, playing nice and at times I feel that I am overwhelmed but since then I have appreciated everything about them.  We are now both very aware and check on them more often and give them extra cuddles every day.

Happy New Year to everyone and hope all your wishes come true
