Love you so much, little man.

I can't believe it's been a year already! It's just gone by so quicky. He started walking just over a week ago - so grown up!

*Pokes LJ* Typical... the day I want to update, it goes down for hours. It's getting more and more irritating to get on here. And what's with the random icon selection? It's reverted to a free account and the icons I have left don't seem to be any of the ones I actually USE. Very annoying.

Anyway - busy couple of months in Tux land! Aedan did get into his school which is a huge relief. A lot of the kids weren't accepted, so we're very lucky. He's having a full 'taster day' next month, before starting full time in September.

Marcus is almost walking now, but lacks the confidence to really go for it! I actually expected him to walk sooner, since he sat and crawled early, but I'm not worried - it's easier this way, lol. I can't believe I'm planning his first birthday already!

Chocolate business taking off now. :) Did a stall at Aedan's school fair and it went really well. Doing another school fair next week. My facebook page wouldn't say no to a few more likers though, so pop over to http://www.facebook.com/hookedonchoc if you fancy a peek at my business world!

*Uses an Elf icon as that's all that seems to be left - maybe they're trying to tell me something? lol*

I hope everyone had a good Christmas. Mine was celebrated on Boxing day, since I was trapped at the inlwas on the 25th! The boys got far too many gifts, my living room is definitely more of a playroom now! Need to buy some storage boxes!

I recently updated my dreamwidth journal imports I want to make sure I have everything if I need to switch over. I'm seriously unhappy with LJ at the moment. Not so much with the changes, although they suck, but with the unprofessional and dismissive attitude.

Funny though, I hadn't used that journal since late 2008. Was quite nice look back... read entries long forgotten about! Found some old fics too, uncompleted as usual! Ah well... one day! I would like to go back to the Gildor/Orophin series again.

Christmas pics below the cut for anyone who isn't sick to death of my boys by now!

We're all sick at the moment - stupid winter bugs dragging us all down!

Aedan has his school play tomorrow, his first ever, so I'm pretty excited! I've already sent his elf costume into the school - even though I still say it's the wrong kind of elf. ;)

Spoke to his teacher about the seemingly random toy cat story request. Ended up feeling a bit daft - apparently, when the toy pet comes home, it's as a reward for completing something they find particuarly difficult. Can't say I really understand how it works, but I'm glad I filled it in!

Below the cut are pics of the boys and some recent cakes.

Halloween isn't really my holiday. I'm grossed out by the guts and gore and am not a fan of trick or treating. But there are certain things you just do when you have kids... and the Toddler Group Halloween party is one of them. And I certainly had to 'do' it - I'm on the committee, so was involved in the set-up and running.

But on the bright side... I think my boys looked soooo cute in their costumes!

Not what I'd call scary... )

These DDoS attacks are getting *really* old. I'm kind of regretting renewing my paid account now! Three days since LJ was working properly. I have a rarely-used Dreamwidth account, (tuxedo_elf there too) but even that seems slow!

But onto more pleasant things. Am gradually getting used to life as a Mum of two! Marcus doesn't sleep much - he's generally up every 2 hours - so I'm exhausted beyond all words, but other than that he's doing well. Aedan adores his little brother and is always kissing and snuggling him. :)

And speaking of babies - two more have joined the LJ babies! Big congratulations to [livejournal.com profile] ford_of_bruinen and family on the birth of their daughter and to [livejournal.com profile] oloriel and family on the birth of their son! I think I also missed congratulating [livejournal.com profile] trekqueen who had her daughter in June, so belated congrats there too!

Aedan woke Marcus up and I couldn't get him back to sleep... I tried everything before giving up and just rocking while playing silly music videos on youtube.

... He only fell asleep listening to K-Pop. O.o I have passed on my bad music taste genes!

Aedan's comment? 'That's definitely not quite right.'

Thanks so much for all the baby and birthday wishes! As promised, here's the full story, with pics! Fair warning, there may be some TMI related to birth here!

I went in to be induced on Saturday morning. I was an hour late, due to panicking! As with Aedan, the hormone gel didn't really do much except give me contractions and that really dragged things out. I eventually made it to 2cm dilated and got transferred to the labour ward. After several really painful hours I got an epidural... especially since I wasn't really progressing and the pain was sending me loopy.
