At the beach with Joaquin

We went to the beach this morning, it was very hot and by the time we had stopped at Clovelly shops to get a cafe and papers it was already 11 and the hottest part of the day.
The water was beautiful though and cooled us off immediately.
Joaquin was scared at first but loved it afterwards and could not get the smile of his face. He also played in the sand with his dadi.

18 months

Joaquin is nearly 18 months, that means he is nearly 1 year and half, where has all the time gone?
Well he certainly is gowning.
He just had one wheetbix for breakfast with milk and his bottle (approx 200mls) before that, and now I am making some Vegemite toast for him.
I stopped breastfeeding approximately 3 weeks ago (the same time my rash came). I am very obsessed with this itchy scratchy ugly rash. Luckily through the day it does not itch just looks horrible. At night at about 4am it itches and I can't sleep.
He loves to play by himself but if I sit on the ground with him and play or watch him he comes up to me and gives me lots of kisses. How beautiful!
He loves to make trains out of the plastic blocks and push them along, actually he loves trains and loves Thomas the tank engine.
He is having his 18 months chickenpox vaccination next week, I hope he will be ok.
He had some diarrhoea last night and was not happy, even though he is eating well and I gave him some boiled rice with a tomato and cheese sauce and broccoli and zucchini.

At home on the balcony

This week J mum has come to visit and has looked after Joaquin while I go to uni and try to do things. But for me there is not enough hours in the day to do everything. The weather is starting to be nice and warm and after uni we played around on the balcony. Joaquin loves it outside and he has been a very good little boy for his grandmother (Nani).
It has been good for me to be able to go to the uni and get away a little, I still have the rash and I went to the gym and ran over 7km and the rash and little red dots got redder and very fired up. I hate this rash with a vengence. I think why me? But i guess it is relatively harmless and does not really hurt me or itch me.
