hooray for camomile?
so as of the last couple of days, egon’s skin’s taken a definite turn for the better! no thanks to me, after i thought he might like to try some greek yogurt. a couple of tiny tastes and his entire face was red, blotchy and ITCHY! i felt terrible :( this subsided after about 20 minutes but he was left looking pretty bad from all the scratching. doesn’t help that it’s...
egon gets his feet wet!
the weather was hot this last (father’s day) weekend, so we decided it would be perfect to go out to arsenio’s parents’ place for a dip in the pool! jo, tony, penny, fran, leif and ziggy all joined us and the babies had some fun in a paddling pool and the big pool! how happy is egon? very happy! happy family in the pool :) daddys and babies!

hands and knees and some food!
egon’s now doing a great job of keeping up this hands and knees pose (we help him to get into it!) - and i think he likes it - a lot of the time when we sit him up now, he lunges forward to try and get into this position, usually ending up on his face! and then he cries and we have to save him, aww :) he’s getting ever so strong. he turns himself around when he wants to look at...
egon’s first symphony :)
