My Little Man is growing up

It turns out that I had nothing to worry about regarding Eli’s development as I mentioned in a previous post.

He has started rolling around and moving himself to get his toys and we have also been encouraging to sit and he can sit unsupported for short periods so we just have to keep a close eye on him when he is sitting.

I am sooo glad that we didn’t have to take him to a physiotherapist.

Well done Little Man!!!  Mommy’s very proud of you!


Frugal Living

First thing we have cut out was take aways.  This has not only helped reduce our spending but has also been keeping us healthy.  Friday nights were usually take away nights, since Hannah enjoys making her own food we have been making homemade take aways.  We have been having pizzas, wraps, burgers, wors rolls with home made chips.  Hannah loves putting together her burgers, and adding toppings on pizzas ….I think she definitely takes after me in that regard.

6 month Pediatrician appointment
