so cute and so sad my "baby" is now technically a "toddler"! Kelsea is the busiest child - always occupying herself - when not tired - mostly she likes to put things in things - for example putting our mobile phones in a glass that we have finished using - or putting little nativity pieces in her dump truck or bag. Aunty Lisa Watson will be glad to know that kels is startign to acceserize - she puts my hairbands on for bangles, puts on a necklace and carrys her bag over her arm - kind of like the queen does. Funny that she also waves like the queen...

Friday night Nicki and I went to Sarah's tupperware party - well i had to "work" - so Grandma and Grandpa looked after the two girls. It was a great party - thanks Sarah! We had a relaxing night - til Sarahs oven started billowing out white puffy smoke - it si brand new and they could't figure out what ahd happened - the meat pies were still frozen!!! the girls were complete angels and went strtaight to sleep.
On Saturday night maddi stayed with Kelsea and I - Jared is STILL away!! Again maddi slept all night and Kels was awake all night - hmmmm i think she needs more "controlled" crying. Its anything BUT controlled!!! its so Funny - Lisa is out there tryign to get Maddi and Kelsea kissing!!! We are all puttimng up the Christmas tree!! yay blogged that before Lisa!!! see Lisa's Blog........lisajking.blogspot.com...........to see pics - and loads more details!!! The kids were all screaming and out of control!!! oh it was fun though.

Jared Finished work at about 11am and we headed into Launceston. Let me just say - i really don't like Launnie. Its hot in summer and freezing in winter - but it does have lovely parks - and People!! it was so hot and sticky - and i had to go to Tupperware to get some, well tupperware!! it was good to finally head down south. We had a long drive - with kels not being very happy - she only slept for a little while and is now over the whole car thing! We got to mums at about 6 and pretty much had to head off to Uncle Ricky and Aunty Pam's for my cousin Cassie's Engagement party. it was a lovely night - one of those perfect tassie summer evenings when the sun doesn't go down til about 9 and you can smell all the hay beign cut and the river. Cassie's Fiance Jared is a nice guy - they look stunning together (will put pics on later - it is such a hassle for me as I am really slow at it!!). Cassie is such a sweet warm hearted girl and Jared is lucky to have her (i'm sure the reverse is true also!!) this will be Jared number 5 for the Watson Family!! Teh more teh merrier!
Ok the next day we had a baby shower for my sis in law Lisa. She is due in about 2 weeks. lots of people came - mums lounge room was packed - sorry no pics of this "lost" my camera again! Lise got heaps of pressies - some cute little knitted things - lots of nappies and all things baby - which are all so adorable!! We played a couple of games - a drinking one that amy one - no surprise there!! hehe joke - it was just cordial!
On sat night was Amy's bday and James, Amy, Jarod, Liam and ella's housewarming. We had a yummy bbq - Amy and James always put on a great feast! Heaps of laughs and good to catch up with people. Kelsea adores her three cousins - and they her - they just flock to Kels and she laps it up!! The party went on into the wee hours long after we headed back to mums place. Mum had the kids with her for the night. Lisa and I were chattign in their lounge till late then we wenrt to bed - mum said she fell asleep on the couch and Ella was still up playing - it was after midnight!! THEN Jarod had a blood nose and bled all over the bed (the kiddies were in her bed 3 in the bed and the little one said..... I can actually see ella pushing the boys out!!)
We headed home early Sunday - as jared had to go on the Boat sunday night to Melbourne - his bosses kidnapped him and still haven't returned him - he thinks now he will be there till next week!!!
I keep gettign tonsilitis and it is really annoying me - and it hurts too!!! But the doc said that I can't have them out - bummer.

Kelsea bosses Maddi a fair bit - but Maddi seems to just take it in her stride! A lady at church commented that you can tell Kelsea is an only child (the "mine" attitude and bullying the other tots!!!) I hope she grows out ofS it! But it is great that she has a strong personality! The other day at Nickis the two girls were sitting in an armchair and Maddi had her head on Kelsea's shoulder - soooo cute - til one got kicked in the tummy and the other clawed!!

So after comign to Aus they eventually settled in Melbourne, where my mum and her older bros Peter and George grew up. So everyone flew to melbourne - well Danni and her lot drove - as did Catherine Levon and Abel. It was sooooooooooo hot for us poor tasweigens!! we are used to the cool tassie spring and it was over 30 degrees the whole time. Kelsea loved the plane - especially looking out the window when we were all tilted - she didn't like sitting still however!!
It was great to catch up with everyone and meet Abel who is abotu 8 months old - and already bigger than Kelsea! Grandpa loved the little ones and Kelsea really loved him too. We had a party at the Matthew flinders hotel - do not recommend staying there!! very noisy niteclub!
Ok i hear Kelsea beating up Grandma!! better go save Grandma!!

Kelsea also goes "running" into the bathromm whenever JAred is in the bath and screams at him and throws everything in the bath - she likes to slap his head too and gets a bit concerned when ever he washes out the shampoo. This morning when we woke up - JAred had left for work and Kelsea kept looking to his side of the bed and going dadadadada and laughing - coz she always attacks him!!

ANyway back to the house! THe kitchen is new and it has 3 bedrooms and a fire place. The back yard is all fenced in and large with lawn and lots of rose bushes. There is a HUGE shed/garage that Jared loves!! and a carport also.
The funny thing about moving is that something is bound to go wrong! Well our TV blew up about 2 days after we moved in - much to Jared's horror! (Oh well - he just has to talk to me now:) ) OH! and our move cost us $300 more than we awere anticipating - as a tree collided with the passenger side of the truck.......ahhh!!!!!!!

Starting at bottom left; Oifa (not sure if spelling is right!) and Maddi in conversation. And Kelsea and Azhure having a chat!! How cute! The 3 girls are all very close in age and will all be in Nursery together very soon!!
Notice how all the drink bottles are the same!! sheer coincidence!!

But this magic cot lives at Grandma and Grandpa's house! It is clled the magic cot because it has this strange effect on unsttled babies - it puts them to sleep (well occasionlly anyway!)
We first discovered it was magic last summer when Eden and Steph brought Chloe to meet everybody. Prior to the cot she fed every hour or so around the clock. i think the first night in the cot she slept 13 or so hours straight. Not sure that that is still the case wit Chloe! Also The first time We moved in Kelsea slept all night. The reason i bring this up is because for the last two nights Kelsea has slept till about 7 am. she has woken a couple of times - had a bit of a scream then back to sleep. wow this is like amiracle for us!
Kelsea seems happier and so are we!!!
She is so excited to see Jared when he comes home - she looks up and goes "dada!" She is a real comedian.

I also put her on Jarod, Liam and Ella's swing set - and discovered she is a dare devil! she LOVEd it! the higher she went the more she giggled!!
Kelsea on the swing set!This photo was taken about Christmas time with Jarod, Liam, Ella and Aunty Amy. Still can't upload recent pics so this old one will have to do!

Kelsea was a little unsure of teh slide when i slid her down it - but i didn't see jared hop on the slide with her - what a fun daddy! (lucky it was him i wouldn't have fitted!!)
thanks Lisa I love this pic of Jared and Kelsea!

So before her birthday even began Kelsea had heaps of gifts!! The night befored mum and I blew up heaps of balloons which tasted really toxic! And I am so glad that we did - Kels loved them. Other present that Kelsea got included a Beuatiful Quilt from Aunty Lisa and Uncle Stan, Aunty Amy, Uncle James and the kiddies got her a book a dressing gown and a huge white bear that hides her eyes!! And Nanna Got Kelsea a little Sofa and a book and some gollywogs!! Also books and clothers from Jess and Tyler.
wow - describing lots - but that is coz I can't put pics on!!! I made a Butterfly cake - which kels was not really interested in!! (she was gettign tired - and a bit over the whole thing by then!) We played pass the parcel - which was a lot of fun! So overall it wa s a great day and Kelsea had a blast - but got toooo tired - maybe a little sick fromt he icing!! I think day time parties may be the way to go.!

Anyways - the road was closed but we decided we couldn't be bothered going around the Judbury way (like a 20 min detour)!! So we just drove through - it cleaned the car nicely.
Sadly I think a horse was washed away the poor thing i bet it was petrified!! - there were about 50 ina paddock right on the river .
And mum informed me tonight that they saw a dead cow floating past the Mushroom farm. So glad that is NOT my drinking water!!
It made me think a bit about Noah and how pannicked the people must have been when te rain just wouldn't stop. Bet they wished they Believed old Noah hey!!
Kelsea is so funny now! She copies everything. tonight stan was trying to get her to say his name - she did - once... then just went babababababababa......she was also copying his tapping his bowl with his spoon.....very clever - she loves stan.
Kelsea's sleeping is sooooooooo unpredictable. One night, 10 hours straight ...the next awake every two hours.....then I give in and pu ther in bed with us.wea re in a doubl ebed and that makes for very coasy sleeping - seeing as Kels likes to spread out!! One benefit - Jared sometimes gets back rubs from Kelsea!! I finally go ther to drink a bottle of milk - milk milo anyway! for a while she just wouldn't drink - it was a bit of a worry!! I have finished feeding her now - she will be one in two weeks.
Sold over $1000 at a parety today - thanks Mel!!
Hopefully Photos to come!!!

Yesterday was my "announcement" Tupperware party. It went pretty well - it was really hectic trying to organise everything before hand - as Kelsea was sooooooooo clingy and the house needed cleaning - plus Jenelle was trying to tell me stuff - and the food hadn't been prepared either! Luckily and thankfully Lauren showed up early and helped with the dishes and took Kelsea for me!! Then mum and nan did the food for me.
I was surprised that we sold $500 as only a few people showed up! i now have my starter kit and ALL the paperwork - there is oodles of it!! I have two parties on Friday then next tuesday and the following friday.
Ok I might go enjoy a happy Kelsea!
Oh yeah and last Thursday night we looked after Donna and Andrew's kiddies! We had a great time - apart from Kelsea being sick. they are so easy to look after and cute and funny too!! Olivia was so cute - when I left she was so upset - probably thinking - why does everyone keep leaving me????

There is a funeral being held in Glen Huon right now for a little girl who was hit by a car last week. Maybe thats why there is a strange atmosphere. Mum just came hom eand said that there were crowds and crowds of people a the hall (she drove past). I didn't knwo the family - bu they actually live up our road somewhere - James and Amy know them - Jarod goes to school with her Brother. The funeral was open to all the school children too.
Kels and I are spending the day with Little Jarod - he is called "little" as there are two of them in my family - actually there are 4 all up - and Cassie is dating a fifth!! He is feeling sick and a bit sad I think too.
Ok better go do something!!
