Where have 5 years gone?

After having read a friends totally up to date blog, I was reminded how poorly I did with my own and keeping it up to date - so, we shall continue after a long pause.

With Atticus's 5th Birthday just two days away I am ashamed to admit that I have missed almost 4 1/2 year of blogging. I shall post some pictures to catch up to present day and a brief insight into our adventures and day to day activities but it shall remain brief and from this day forward be more thorough.

Hanging around with Tata

We just kinda hung around outside the house. Apparently I am a 'chick magnet' to hang around with Tata said.

Granny Branka Visits

Atticus had a lovely week when Granny Branka visited. We took the train to town and he got to shop lots and is becoming a true professional.

Head to the Hills

We took Atticus to Marin to do some hiking in his new backpack carrier. He seemed very happy to be carried up and down the hill, even settling down for a nap on the way back up.

We stopped for a picnic at the bottom near to the beach which Atti seemed to enjoy. He went exploring with Tata, Tata enjoyed this more I think.

There were a lot of sail boats racing in the bay so we sat a while longer and watched them pass. They only passed in one direction which was puzzling but I'm sure they made it back eventually.

It was an exhausting day for Atticus, and we took him home for a well earned nap.

Yummy Lunch

We went to Leena and Prashant for lunch today and it was delicious. Atticus tried his first spicy food which he seemed to enjoy a lot.

We passed him around the table taking turns in eating, a little exhausting but it all panned out ok. We had a group 'hug' photo taken to remember the great lunch.

Pondering on Life and Food Shopping

Off we went for the weekly shop to TJ's and now Atticus can sit in the cart it makes things a lot easier. Whereas before I had to use the Bjorn carrier, now we can calmly stroll around and Atti enjoys the view and also the attention from many other shoppers. The cute hat helps. Mummy had to buy this hat as Tata didn't want to go out with Atti wearing the first hat that Mummy had purchased saying that it was a "girly bonnet". Fair enough, we'll just use it when Tata isn't with us.

And he's off........

Today was the day that Atticus progressed from the commando crawl to the full on move like lightening crawl. He just got it as he moved across the nursery, up onto the knees he went and there has been no stopping him since.

Deda and Winnie are now constantly on red alert as they seems to be what Atticus gravitates to once he is on a roll. Deda especially is a nervous wreck and I suspect wishes he had eyes in the back of his head.

I, Mama, am getting fitter by the day due to all the running or crawling around after the boy.
