So, I gave back Mel's MeiTai on Monday but not before I got in a go at a High Back Carry (HBC). I'd never managed to get Jake that high before and it was heaps more comfy. Yes, I look like cr@p, had a terrible night beforehand.
And here is a picture Ben took of Jake while I was vacuuming. He does this the whole way around the house, and for anyone who has been to my house, it's a BIG house. It takes FOREVER. If I pull the vacuum too hard, too far, too fast he falls over. The other kids were frightened of the vacuum but not Jake.
See the bike basket? This is what he was putting all the floaties into, lol.

I think I've figured out how to 'steal' my Avatar off BellyBelly :) BellyBelly is an online forum I've been a part of for a long time now, and paid members get their own Avatar. I've just had mine redesigned to include Jake as an older baby and I love it :) I love how smokin' I look, LOL :D

The Back Carry
The Hip Carry (sorry about the blurry pic, Benji took it ;))
My biggest news first....we've bought a house! :) Well we've signed a contract anyway, assuming all the paperwork gets done and goes through ok we should be in our own home by the end of January. We made a big decision and decided to move to a whole new area, because the houses there are much cheaper than they are in the Huon Valley. Although we would ideally love to find a house here to buy, it just wasn't happening so we made a move on New Norfolk. It won't be so bad, it is closer to
Other than that, the breaking news is that Jake took his very first two steps alone last night :) He is just 8 days shy of 9 months. It was pure accident, he didn't realise he wasn't being held. the last couple of days he's been working on standing alone, keeping his balance. One minute he's on the floor and the next he gets himself up on his knees, then one knee and then slowly stands up! When he gets wobbly he squats a little until he gets his balance. So cute to see :) I give him the two weeks until Xmas to be walking much more. I was gonna save this pic as I'm sending it to some of you in Xmas cards but I just have to share.....
