Bendigo and birthdays and baby

Only a few weeks until we head over to Bendigo. Can't wait! :) It will be Oscar's first big trip and we're hoping he'll be alright with sitting in the car for a while. We're doing the trip over two days as we usually do and are prepared to do as many stops as Os needs. We're slowly getting organised... have made a list of things to take and will book accommodation very soon. Os may be eating some solids by the time we go, so we have to pack for that as well as pack everything he needs for his formula.
(I'm reading this out to Oscar as i type to keep him entertained, and he's just staring. Creepy!)
The trip to Bendigo is part of my brithday present from Damien. The other part is this laptop! It was a really nice surprise when Damien gave it to me. I was a bit confused at first because I thought that the "happy birthday cheryl" message on the screen was the present :) Oscar spends most of his awake time in the loungeroom, and now that he is moving around much more it's so good to be able to watch him and check out facebook at the same time ;) It has also been handy to do things like look up information for our trip etc and Damien has also put some shows and movies on there.
Apart from all of that Oscar has been doing well recently. He did a bit of a commando crawl the other night and tends to move around a fair bit when he's on the floor. He has also been sleeping much better this past week. We thought it might have been because of his immunisations, but he's stilll sleeping well so we'll see.
(PS Oscar was staring because he was tired. I put him to bed and he slept for an hour and a half!)


  1. Heh, yeah the packing is going to be interesting. I mean the pram takes up a lot of the boot, and the baby seat takes up a big space in the back too. In fact, I suspect even without the pram all Oscar's stuff will be bigger than mine and Cheryl's combined :)
    I'm really looking forward to visiting Bendigo too, and finally introducing Oscar to Nanny and Poppy (and Nanna, and all the other family members too). Should be fun :)

  2. We're looking forward to seeing you all as well. Maybe you could borrow Lisa's pram to save carting that. We have a cot and a high chair. I remember how much luggage babies needed.
