It's been a while between postings. Tyler has cut two molars and had a dose of champylobacter which was not pleasant.

Today we took advantage of the fantastic weather and went to the Edendale Crankup Day. This features vintages tractors, so Tyler was in his element.

Tyler was restless during the night so came and slept with us (as I started work today and needed the sleep). He spent the day with Chris and was a bit feverish, refusing food and wanting cuddles and sleep. He also had 'interesting' nappies. Lo and behold, tooth No. 7 has just poked it's head up! He's now a box of fluffies.

Totally zonked out! When he sleeps, he's all over the place.

Here he is just after daddy gave him a haircut with the new clippers (thank you Grandad & Jan).

He is a budding mechanic and loves to help Daddy do things to the cars and bikes.

Here's Tyler's 2005 Santa photo.

Yesterday we drove to Cromwll for their New Year touch tournament. We've played in it for the last 3 years. It was overcast and windy, but still warmish. Our team came second in it's grade, although we played 3 girls/3 guys whereas everyone else played 2 girls/4 guys. We lost the final 5-3.

We also stopped in to visit Chris' Uncle Ron and Aunty Noeline near Arrowtown. Tyler didn't sleep on the way home so was grumpy and overtired. I also think he is teething - this will be tooth number 7.

On Monday Rachel, Chris & Samantha from Dunedin came for lunch. Tyler and Sam had a great time together, and both were pretty tired by the end of it all. Rachel is 12 weeks pregnant and glowing!

Tuesday, we went swimming with Helen, Stephen & Rebecca. Tyler was very reluctant at first, but finally decided that he wanted to join in the fun, and then demanded to be with Anton all the time, preferably at the deep end with lots of splashing :)

Tyler's latest word is 'tacta' for tractor. He is also very good at waving goodbye and saying 'ta-ta' and blowing kisses. His repertoire of animal noises has expanded to include 'bk bk' for the hens and 'ssss' for the snake. 'RRRRURRRR' for the lion is still the enthusiastic favourite.

Happy 92nd Birthday Great-Grandma in Dunedin!!

We went to Te Anau for New Year's. We stayed with Bruce and Ali, where Tyler had more fun on the four-wheeler, checking out the animals. We also visited Paul and Kirsty and their new baby Shelby, who is a wee darling.

We were all big Nanas and in bed by 11:3pm so did not even see the New Year in!

Back to Invercargill today. Rachel, Chris and Samantha from Dunedin are visiting tomorrow. Sam is 5 days older than Tyler.
