Hello Everybody!!!
We have been very busy with our new little brother and we thought it was about time for an update!

We had a lovely Christmas and we hope you all did too!

Ptolemy just loved looking at all the Christmas lights and we just loved posing with him.

Gertrude is the best baby-sitter ever - she really loves little Ptolemy and likes to keep a close eye on him
He never seems to mind about us two huge bears walking around him and sniffing him. We are very careful when he is around.
I wonder what he thinks of having us as his big sisters?

Here's Gertrude again in her new role which she clearly adores. She can't wait until Ptolemy can run around after her!

Sometimes she steals a quick kiss.....

But mostly she just likes to cosy up to him while he gabbles away at her.

Here we are with our daddy and Ptolemy

He is quite a cheeky little thing and is very funny to watch when he starts laughing and squaking!

He does some strange things and never keeps still!
He provides constant entertainment for us.

Our mummy is now a lot better and is back to her normal self - yippee!

She takes us all out together for walks when daddy is at work. Ptolemy comes too - he comes everywhere with us now!

Sometimes he is quiet though, and even our barking doesn't wake him up!

What a cutie!

Oh - take that back.....What a grump!
(perhaps he didn't like wearing that funny hat!)

We've recently enjoyed some great walks - daddy always finds us the BEST sticks to throw into the river!

Molly can retrieve any stick from the river!

And that's us!

One more thing - we have heard that our nanna in Australia has adopted a dog that arrived one day on her front door-step and is now staying for good! Aussie Nanna thinks she was dumped - poor girl.

She is called Kelly.

Good to see you!

Lots of love from
Molly and Gertrude

Gosh so much has been happening. The photos are great. Look at little Tolly. He sure has a very competent babysitter there....good girl Gertie.

Wow, your nanna has a new dog. How sad that she was dumped. It might be for the best anyway. We hope Kelly is happy.

Hi Molly and Gert,
It's so nice to hear from you. Hasn't little Ptolemy grown. Mum went all mushy when she saw his photos! They are so beautiful. Gertrude looks extremely competent in her role as nanny.
Your dad looks very strong! Does he throw those huge sticks for Molly?
We got the elk handpuppet from Aldi (available only before Christmas). Mum bought one too many this year so can you email us your address - we would like to send it to you.
Lots of Love
Finni xx

Hey, Molls & Gertie!

We have SO missed you guys, but it's obvious you've had some very important work to do. Glad your mama is feeling so much better, and that baby Ptolemy is getting plenty of nanny-ing from his sissies. (I bet he LOVES it when you all try to steal a smooch from him.)

He looks very much like a cheeky little fellow. We loved all the photos, and especially loved how happy you two looked while out by the river with your dad! Those were some great action shots!

Can't wait to hear more about your adventures in babysitting. Your brother is in great paws!

Goober love & smooches,

Hey Girls - so good to hear from you, we were getting worried.

The pictures are beautiful - and Gertrude makes such a lovely 'Nanny'. We are happy that your mum is back to normal - it must be a huge relief in your household!

My mum loves the pic of Ptolemy with the grumpy face - poor chap!

Looking forward to reading more!
