In the world of Nev, there sure is a lot happening and whew does it wear him out. Dad has been working at Adelaide High School where they are constructing a new building on top of the original Adelaide Observatory. A really important site that helped establish time and location beginning in the 1840s. Here's a shot after a rough day. Nev's shirt says: Instant Archaeologist...Just add coffee! It was from an archaeologist friend of ours, Jo.
Many of the photos I take have an empty look on Nev's face because he is engaging in something other than the camera or me. This one, however, caught his attention. He's quite alert, and will turn 3 months on Wed.
Compare that image above with him at one week old: Crazy to think that those eyes remain the same size. How huge they and his nose & mouth look in this photo?
Of course, he's doing so well because he sleeps so well. Nevlin comes from a long line of sleepers. Here are two shots that I took coming in from the car.
Drooling is a newer pass time, hence the frequency of more bibs in photos. The light was just so soft on his little fuzzy head.
When Nev wakes up from a nap, he often looks like a deer in headlights. Then he smiles so big because he forgot you existed, let alone that you would come back. What a wonderful surprise every time!
Also upon waking from a nap Nev is hungry...he frequently tries to get milk out of his hands and rub his feet together vigorously in anticipation of the flow of white stuff. Even if you make the noise of shaking a bottle, his eyes light up. This kid is not wanting for food.
Finally I have a shot with a few presents from the states: the platypus on Nev's shirt was put there by his OH cuz, Jess (I LOVE IT!) and it matches his Cleveland Browns pants while he "hits" at his red football from another cuz from TX, Liam. We had the football in the bath, but it sinks and passes out of Nev's view much too quickly.
Nevlin's 45 min morning nap has lasted well over 3 hrs now, so I think he's going to have an active afternoon. We will see! Its always a bit different each day, but the consistency of eating well & sleeping pretty good keeps everyone happy.
