i love these two crazies and i love this picture, even though it's blurry, i love it. it sums these two up, mad as a box of frogs. like seriously i don't know who was having more fun.

we've had such a good weekend with grandma liverpool, who has been the perfect distraction for a teething caleb. four teeth in a matter of a week. ouch.

living away from my side of the family, is well, pretty crap but i do stand by that when we do spend time together it is always quality time. that is if you call quality time being on your hands and knees chasing a one year old around? that's quality time isn't is ma?? i mean i did supply wine too ;)

there were a few tears shed tonight after we said goodbye to grandma liverpool. mostly caleb, okay mostly me. i count myself incredibly lucky to have the friendship i have with my mum, and now seeing her and caleb form such a strong bond makes me so happy.

we love you, grandma liverpool, and the fact that caleb is now saying 'oops' because of you :)


  1. Awwww bless!! You look a lot like alike, the three of you!

    I so relate to being away from your family, it's not nice :/

    1. it can be tough hey! love the time when we do spend it together though.
      hope you've got a visit home or family visiting you booked in soon :)

  2. awww! sweetness! I really love the blurry photo too. I seriously don't think it would be as good if it was tac sharp...you just totally get the feel of love, laughter, and fun! Isn't it amazing how much those relationships with the grandparents mean to you. I mean, of course...but I was surprised how special and important it is for me. Sigh, hope you get lots of visits soooon! I love that you are so close to your mom. OH, and thank you for the essay on my blog in the comments, ha. Thank you! loved it and needed the smile. :)

    1. i swear all my best pictures of caleb are blurry. oh well.
      you're more than welcome for the essay ;)
