Alice and Oscar are mobile.

Alice started to crawl last week Smack bang on 8 months old. Oscar also started crawling yesterday at 8 months and 1 week of age. Jonathan is still trying to master the art of rolling. I am sure he will get eventually get there. We have had to move everything up out of reach. The barriers to the kitchen went up on Sunday. Alice sits and observes how we unclip the gate. She must be plotting her escape. The are all very vocal and love talking, especially when you are on the phone.

They are not all sleeping through the night however they are becoming more consistent with when they are waking up during the night. Yesterday I decided that we needed a bigger car. We really needed the extra space of a 7 seater. So I went to the local Mazda dealer as they had a promotion on the CX9.  We decided to ditch the CX7 after only 6500 km.  It was a good car but sadly it just wasn't big enough for the triple pram and the kids. The new car is the same colour as the old one, it is just much bigger.  We should have the car delivered by Friday. Ummmm, new car smell, again. We now have to work out how to get the 3 baby stickers off the back window and transfer them to the new car. I have attached a small video from last week of Alice crawling.


  1. Well done babies!!! You realise once you baby proof the house due to crawling, you then need to baby proof again as they starts standing and walking around the furniture. Then when they get a big bigger, they figure out how to open doors, so it's another round of securing everything. Good tip on the car, we need to get a bigger car, think we'll go straight for the 7 seater (already have 2 adults, 2 kids, dog and one or two on the way sometimes in the next year or so.

  2. Wow....now you are reallys screwed with 3 soon to be crawling !!!! Great to see the babies. We must meet up for a Chrissie play date. 7 seater is a must I think....our dogs have to go on the roof rack or stay home at present !!!
