Last entry of the day *yawn* I did it! I actually edited and am now in the processing of uploading the pix from our england trip. That only leaves Don's Convention pix left and I want him to select them, cos well, I dont know what he wants LOL The boys played well in the evening, although Jamie bopped his bro on the head but we did practice Standing without support for JD and how to get up to stand for Jamie today. Jamie loves standing and he can hold onto the yard fencing well and stand there, his upper body strength isnt as JD's at the moment. He will get there in his own time. JD's tooth (upper middle, our left) is becoming ever clearer. He looks so cute with one upper and one lower tooth! Jamie is trying harder to say 'fan' and he points upwards all the time. He can do the light and so far every picture on the wall is "clock". We try and play word games when we can. I made chocolate bread today, don is gng to be the guinea pig hehe. JD crawls on all fours now and only occasionally does his commando crawl. JD got more talkative after a slightly longer nap in the pm, he was rather tired poor dear.

don got home earlier so he got to see his boys a bit bfr bed. Jamie threw a wobbly when he was put to bed and he woke his brother up who prob had just fallen asleep so I went upstairs to help Don soothe them. After a few mins, they were put back down into bed, jamie didnt protest (I hadnt said good night to him earlier) and curled up to sleep. JD bawled and retreated to a far corner and gave you the "how COULD u leave me?!" face, at which we promptly said good night and closed the door. A few mins later, silence except for the soothing strains of their music. Jamie obviously didnt suffer from yday's dive into the bath as he tried to get a toy by leaning backwards luckily mama grabbed him, he didnt cry, good boy! a cuddle, he wanted to get his teeth brushed (he pointed to the toothbrushes) and all was fine. but whew!

Don still wont sing nursery rhymes to his sons, even in the car! He says its cos he doesnt want to give them nightmares! Silly man. but wait... his time will come. He will be the dad that will be playing hide and seek somewhere in public. One day, he will sing nursery rhymes!

Ok, I am very tired and I need to shower and chill out bfr sleeping. Gotta catch up with the kids diary too, hand written, aiyoooo.. I gotten so lazy! I must also write to our Uncle John in Scotland. (makes mental note to do so).

Later days, folks!

didnt get around to doing the photo editing, the boys only napped half an hour so had to try and settle them. JD is rather clingy today and Jamie also wants attention, aiyoooo, drama minggu ini I tell you! Anyway, am trying to sort out our domain name headache. It seems the utterly useless Yahoo domains cancelled my account (gee, thanks for telling me) mainly cos I cancelled their web hosting service (cos it sux now). I found a better place for more stuff for cheaper (pardon the english, but am annoyed). So with the support ppl's help at createspace, am hoping to transfer domain maintenance over to them for half the price. Contacted Yahoo's domain provider, MelbourneIT but they said oh it was registered via Yahoo so u have to speak to them. Well, that's just great. Well, let's see what the Yahoo customer support ppl come back with. It's very annoying. I mean my domain doesnt expire for some time yet but if I didnt go and check on it, I wouldnt hv known and I could hv lost my domain name. B****ds! soooooooooooo not sure what to do, either cancel with them fools and sign up domain AGAIN, which means I lose some time with email and the like. If createspace can negotiate and get it switched, then hey, that's even better. Who knows? But it's more crap that I dont need ya know? I hope it gets solved soon and minimal fuss and cost to us (and our site/email etc).

Boys are playing together ok. Jamie does tend to steal his brother's toys and then whacks him on the head with it but I am hoping to train him not to do that, it's hard, he thinks it's fun! but for the most part, they play ok together or seperately. The yard has enough room anyway. I think its time for some milk and a cuddle, maybe a short sleep again? It looks like an early night again tonight.

More on this later.

later days, folks!

It's a raining Monday. JD woke up when the rain started, bawling. Now this is from a lad who sleeps thru thunder storms usually. It took us ages to get him to sleep last night. we gave him some makan, a drink of water (he wanted to drink from Papa's mug so cute! he is pretty good at drinking from it too), changed nappies, sing songs, play a bit, applied teething gel, gave him cold teething rings, rocked him, sing more songs, in the end Mama took him upstairs, put him in our bed and invented some quiet stories to tell him, he fidgeted about for a while and in the end I found the position he wanted to be rocked in and I told him more stories, getting quieter and quieter until he fell asleep. When I figured he was asleep enough, I placed him back into his cot and he didnt even budge an inch. He did eat ok this morning (he was rather grumpy later on although he played with his bro quite happily) and he zoned out pretty fast (after a lil bit of crying when I first put him in and left the room) so the poor dear musta been tired.

F1 was an exciting race, from what I saw of it, what was with that nutter who ran out on track, not only that, ran headlong into the cars! Some protester or something but he's a MADMAN as far as I am concerned. But the race was full of exciting events from what I hear. great stuff! Let's see where I am in terms of our Fantasy League. I wonder if this will signal the end of the Silverstone leg of the F1 tour, Bernie (u know my mate, bernie ecclestone hehe) has been sounding off on the track etc and after this incident of the nutter protester, it might be the clincher. There's Russia, China (next year), and possibly Middle East and India. So who knows?!

Its STILL raining, it's going to be a flooded roads day I think, hope it isnt as bad as the dataran merdeka incident, I feel so sorry for those folks. You'd think they wld hv figured out we get monsoon rain regularly and then they fix the flood problem but hey... we all know how they work hehe

Ok, I am gng to get some photo editing down so I can finally upload some new pix over to our site. We hvnt taken any new pix lately, my bad! prob take so many during the boys bday party. Ah Ma takes so many anyway, she spends most of the visit taking pix LOL Anyways, will update more at the end of the day. Wld the rain stop already? I got laundry to dry!

later days, folks!
