This is Mav practicing for being homeless some day. We picked up the babys' cot yesterday and Mav decided he wanted to sleep in the box with all the foamy stuff. Looks like he likes it. I guess I don't have to worry about him if he ever loses everything. lol

This is Aden's first 'shiner'. He was wrestling with some friends yesterday arvo and copped an elbow to the cheekbone. I think it's going to be very colourful come the end of today.

Nina is growing up so quickly. She's about 19 months old and she's speaking Vietnamese and English. I am sure she's going to be much taller than my wife and me.

I'll post up a few fairly recent pics of her.

My wife isn't bad looking either. She got skinny again right after we had Nina. She wants another one now.

Ali, I meant to ask you whether it was a Boori cot on another thread.
But in the UK, Boori assemble the cot and take the packaging away, so I guess not.
Still, if the box is good enough to sleep in... whydya waste ya money on a COT?! Favouritism

I'd love an update on the shiner too please!

Radar, you have a beautiful wife and an absolutely gorgeous daughter.
And I am so pleased you are raising her to be bi-lingual.

Years ago I got a cab to the airport in New York, and the taxi driver said proudly that he was French and his wife Polish (or the other way round) but his children grew up to speak only American. I thought that was sad. I'm not big on roots (we're all mongrel over here) but I know how hard it is to learn a foreign language, and how wonderful it is to have one without effort. I envied my schoolfriends from Italian families enormously.

It made me laugh when I saw your comment about a Boori cot. Over here, Boori is a derogatory word for an aboriginal person. Oh the cultural divide is so great even though we try to pretend it's not. lol

Aden helped me put it together. It was pretty simple actually. Only took about 10 minutes, so I was happy. 10 mins is about as long as I can spend bending over these days. lol

I really don't know why Mav wanted to sleep in it, but it's not the first time. He still loves playing in boxes when he gets the chance. He's still a kid and I'm very glad. Aden is growing up way too fast imo. I wish he'd slow down, but I don't think it's reversable.

The shiner is mostly gone now. I meant to take a pic of it the other day when it was at its most colourful, but it's pretty much back to normal now. He's been telling everyone he got a backhander for being a smart mouth to me. lol Little bugger!
