On a happier note our good friends Darren and Beverley welcomed their daughter to the world on Tuesday morning. Paige Addison weighed in at 6lbs 13oz - many congratulations guys! And auntie Lorraine has returned from New Zealand - hoorah! The imminent arrival of her first grandchild sealed the deal - another baby on the horizon - we can't wait!

When we went swimming it was much easier this time and we just basically flung him in and got him wet and dunked, painful but it meant he got stuck in quicker. He gets scared some times and is quick to cling on...especially when the wave machine kicked in. Yes, I said wave machine.
Coby's response to the waves was: Wicked waves Dad! - not much makes me smile in life more than him saying something cute like that :)
Towards the end we were walking back to the towels and Coby dived at the Swan Slide and we could not drag him off. He was fearless. No wings needed. He loved it!
Tonight as I put him to bed he was stroking my beard and gazing in to my eyes, he drifted off towards sleepy town stroking my bread and chuckling...nice!
Over-dramatised phrase of the week: 'I NEEEEEED pink milk' aka strawberry milk, oh the humanity!

Hattie is looked after during the day by her nanny, Sam, who used to work at nursery and has looked after Coby for us a few times too. She's lovely and made us all sandwiches for lunch...

Luckily for us Coby has become attached, in a security blanket kind of way, to his muslin cloths that he has been familiar with since birth, the cloths have come and gone of course, but as they are all identical, one is much the same as any other. This means two key things: we can never lose Muzz as he calls them and we can never run out. Perfect scenario!
Coby has a few toys, so much so I am thinking of giving some of the lesser used ones away to various good causes. But here are his Fave5 (in reverse order of Coby's need to have it with him at all times) that we will not be giving away, no matter what:
5) His stuffed soft girl (very important point that Coby will not let anyway forget) rabbit, Willa
=3) His Woody toy
=3) His Buzz Lightyear toy
2) His Lego Mac from Cars (which also contains a Lego Lightning McQueen)
and his #1 toy that he will not be parted from is...
1) His Wall-E action figure - great film!
We all went Swimming today and it was great fun. Well, when we finally got Cobes in the pool that is. 15 minutes to get him changed. 15 minutes to get him in the pool. 60 minutes to get him to leave once he started loving it. Will go every week now but he will be a good little swimmer we reckon.
Saved the best for last. Coby utters many amusing phrases but the phrase of the week this time has to be when he dropped something (I think he dropped something, anyway, something went wrong somehow) and Coby exclaimed Ohhhh, Fffffffffffffor Gods Sake. As you can imagine we'll take a For over other potential F words anyday ;)

Coby loves this song from the 'Wall-E' soundtrack and bops along and attempts to sing every time. Originally, of course, its from 'Hello Dolly'. When I showed him this video he asked if they were all going to Wall-E Land! He was still transfixed by the dancing though and I adore Barbra Streisand, so this is on our list of favourites!

Waffle House in St. Albans: carrot and parsnip soup with mega waffle followed by Pecan Nut and Butterscotch sauce waffle AND ice-cream and a Non-alcohol Mulled wine with spiced fruits! Yum, yum, yum, more calories on the tum!
"Oh for God's sake" - Coby's response when we dropped a yogurt lid on the carpet
"Its a dark, sunny day mummy" - Coby is as confused by the weather as the rest of us!
"Now play nice" - Coby quotes his hero, Woody from Toy Story
"I'll have 5 Kinder Eggs, I think" - chocaholic??

Coby is obsessed with watching his favourite movies and has even started quoting from them! His special ones are Cars, Toy Story, Wall-E and Madagascar. We even had granny replace Toy Story 1 and 2 recently because the old ones were scratched and worn to bits.
In the car yesterday, Coby announced "I don't want to survive, I want to live!". We were astonished until we realised he was quoting a line from Wall-E. And as for the music - Coby loves dancing to the music and singing along, particularly 'You Got A Friend in Me' from Toy Story and 'I Like to Move It' from Madagascar...brilliant!
