Five Months Old!

On Monday Riker turned five months old and I had to pinch myself. Where did my little baby go?

Here's Riker with another of his baby friends, Niamh:

And here's a series I took today of Riker in his play-gym:

And here he is fast asleep after the play-gym and a snack and a change of clothes:

A few people are starting to say that Riker looks like me. Up until a couple weeks ago, EVERYONE said he looked like Brian. What do you think?

Here's a baby photo of yours truly for comparison:

Mother's Group

Here are some photos from my lovely mother's group. There are sixteen of us and the babies range in age from about three to five months. Riker is now four and a half months and weighing in at 8.9 kilos or 19 lbs 10 oz. Everyone keeps asking me what I feed him and I'm starting to wonder if I should cut out the ice cream from his diet :)

Cuteness everywhere:

Last week I was in the ANUgreen office for the farewell party of my friend and workmate Clare. Here's a great photo of some of my favorite people in all of Australia:

Warwick, retired director of Facilities and Services; John, ANUgreen office manager; Beth, biodiversity officer; Clare, staff outreach; Bart, associate director F&S; yours truly, student outreach; Riker, eco-warrier in training; Jan, HR; Teifi, student outreach; Steve, energy and water; Su, assistant office manager and risk/pollution officer; Adam, sustainable transport officer; Nicki, admin and all around super support person. Only missing Barry, waste and recycling officer extraordinaire, who works from home on Wednesdays.

All the best in your new adventures Clare!
