Bits and pieces

Ughhhh I hate hot weather! We are lucky that our house doesn't get too hot it's still gross and sticky and hard to sleep. But now its pouring with rain and stormy as anything, hopefully that cools everything down.
Yesterday Auron managed to pull my hair straighter off the shelf and turn it on and subsequently burnt himself. I didn't realise how bad it was until later that night. He barely even cried but as I looked at his fingers I noticed to big blisters. Poor baby. He doesn't seem at all bothered by them though so we are lucky there. Such a tough little man we have.
Auron has his little routine in the morning. He wakes up and sits there for a minute then he's off down the hallway to the bathroom to play in the bottom of the shower. He plays there for a good 20-30mins then he's back to get me to make his breakfast. I think its just so cute that he does it EVERY morning. He also loves to talk on the phone. He uses the the actual phone, the remote, wii controller and DVD's and holds it up an babbles away to himself.
On the weekend we went to my cousins 7th birthday. They have a cool blow up pool which all the kids loved, it was a 40 degree day so it was well used all day. Auron loved it, it was a nice chance to cool down. He also loved the raspberry iceblock and bottle of juice his cousin Tiarne gave him. He definatly is a spoilt little boy. Earlier that morning we went to clean the chapel at 6am. Auron followed Aarahi around outside with his little lion bike.
Now that Aarahi has Sunday afternoons free, because he no longer teaches mission prep it gives him the chance to be able to participate in the choir which he has been wanting to do ever since we moved here. He loves to sing....and he CAN sing but he hasn't had many opportunities for awhile now.

Yey not sick!

For the first time in 3 weeks or so I haven't had a stomach bug or a cold, or bad headache it's been great to say the least.
This week has been fairly uneventful in the Matthews household. Valentines day was great! I woke up in the morning to find a bag from the jewelers on the dining room table. Inside was a note that said "I am hiPing....." confused much? I thought maybe it was an old bag and he meant we could go get something when he got home. I typed hiping into facebook and the wiggly line appears, right click to spell check "hiding"! well that makes sense. Searched the house top to toe and gave up and fed Auron his breakfast and then I saw sitting on my chair a cute little box. inside were 2 beautiful charms for my Pandora bracelet.
I still hadn't bought Aarahi anything...he's impossible. None the less Auron and I headed into town to try our luck. We settled on a new bag, he had said he wanted a new one anyway. It was a little expensive so thought I better actually make sure he liked it. Rang him to come and have a look, he approved. Then subway for lunch.
I made a yummy homemade from scratch butter chicken for dinner with some homemade garlic naan bread. Recipes from my new Jaime Oliver cook books I scored for $5 each at the small grocer by our house. (I saw them later that day at Target for $50each) Dinner was polished off with mini bonoffee pies. Boy did we feel fat!
Auron is growing like a weed, he's getting so tall and is pretty good at his walking now he hardly crawls at all. His favourite thing to do is chase the gym ball around (atleast it has some use right). He also LOVES to play xbox with Daddy, I think we are breeding a nerd. Uncle Jameson will be so proud.

Our yummy dinner

Hehe I found this photo of Auron the day he came home. These clothes fit him all of one week!

A Week of Fun

So I had a new plan this week as I was feeling like a bit of a useless mummy. I was always busy with trying get the housework done, tending to Auron's basic needs, cooking dinner, keep the house running, making sure my hard working husband was ok and trying work on my own little projects that Auron just got slotted into whenever I had a spare moment. He would always be following me around tugging at my legs while I tried to do things and complaining and the more I ignored his pleas for attention the louder he got and seriously this boy screams like a girl, so high pitch it's painful to hear.

Starting on Monday I made sure all the house work and organising etc was done before midday, I worked on my own projects only when Auron was napping or was playing with daddy. I dedicated 3 hours each day in a row to uninterrupted Auron time. The difference has been AMAZING for the last 4 days the only times hes cried have been when he hit his head and when he goes to bed. The complaining and high pitch screaming stopped immediately and no more tugging on my leg. He is now happy to play on his own when I'm busy and I am finding I actually have more time on my hands and the house is cleaner and more organised.

So what do we do you may ask? Well we've played with play dough, done finger painting on the floor...by far his favourite activity, chased the gym ball around outside, played in buckets of water, read lots of books, done 'cooking' he just likes to eat whatever we are cooking, watched some youtube clips, and just played together.

Today we went to the Bunnings Hardware store and Auron pushed around one of those trolleys they have for little kids aw he was so cute gutted that we forgot the camera. We went to buy some baby proofing supplies. Aarahi has been tying plastic bags around the door knobs in the kitchen so Auron can't get in. It works well for Aarahi seeing as he never really opens any cupboards in the kitchen but it was driving me crazy having to untie all the knots!

Aarahi rang to tax department this week to ask about our tax return which was due last year but still hasn't come through. They were no help, I guess the tax department is the same in every country. They said just wait and it will come, in the mean time they will put a fast track on it. I'm hoping it comes in time for our holiday but I highly doubt it, but it would be nice to have a bit more spending money. Although some of it will be off to meet my infamous student loan. That's a whole other story and why I hate the NZ tax department. Getting an education shouldn't be so expensive!

I crocheted this week! My nana taught me years ago and i brushed up on youtube. I made the baby this cute little owl hat. I am quite proud of it haha first time I've actually completed something like that!. My next project is to make a new carseat cover for Auron. His one is just plain black and grey, I think it could do with some colour.

That's about it for this week

Just like every other kid I eat my icecream from the bottom

I LOVE to play daddy's xbox. I even have my own controller but I still like daddy's one best

Covered in paint!

This is the hat mummy made me, this photo doesnt do its cuteness justice

Can you see the big bump on my head? I hit it on the corner of the wall

Brushing my teeth

First haircut

So I gave Auron his first hair cut today. I was a tad emotional as I chopped off a good inch off the top. It was getting long, and in his eyes and it kept getting food in it. He still looks super cute though! You actually cant really tell because most of his length was on the top.
This past weekend we went to our stake youth swimming carnival. I think everyone had fun. I think most of the youth are at that "I'm too cool to swimming" stage despite the fact its ridiculously hot. The heat got to them though and by the end of the day everyone was in the water. Even Aarahi and I ended up in the water clothes and all. Auron LOVES swimming, this kid is not even slightly scared of water, even likes going under.
Following the swim we made a mad dash home to get changed and get to my cousins 17th birthday. She's in hospital at the moment but was out for the weekend which was awesome.
We missed church this week as we we both sick. I don't know why all of the sudden I seeem to be getting every illness going around! Definatly OVER it
Aarahi also took friday off work to hang out at home with us. We didn't do too much as I was sick and Auron was grumpy. Aarahi let me have a sleep with Auron and he got to work in the lounge making a hut for us. It's really cool....so cool infact that it's still up. We slept in it one night and watched Madagascar and Aarahi made snacks. Good fun! LOVE MY LIFE.

Isn't he so YUMMY!

I Love his facials here, so cute

Oh no! a blurry Daddy!

Ahhh that's better
