And then there were three!

Enough was enough, one HOT curry and it was all action stations.  Ethan arrived 3 days early thanks to Siamese Basil (the Thai Restaurant on Coast Hwy).  We had a great time in the delivery room waiting for little man.  Chrissy and Miguel spent the day with us and we watched movies and laughed and Miguel our mexican flatmate finally came up with the RIGHT name!

And then there was some news….

After a busy couple of months, surfing heaps, snowboarding and skateboarding, Chrissy came home from work one day, out of the blue with a pregnancy test.  She said "you’re pregnant, now prove it" or some such thing.  I hadn’t at this point even stopped to consider I might be preggers!  but she was right and I was soon frantically making lists and driving Dave around the bend with weekend shopping excursions.  There were quite a few as at this point we shared a scooter and that was the sole material asset that we owned aside from our numerous surfboards, snowboards etc.
