Grace Ivy Lattimore

Grace Ivy Lattimore, born 1:48PM Saturday 12/3/2011 weighing 5lb 15oz & 46cm longI’m absolutely delighted to announce that we have a new baby girl to add to the greater Lattimore family, Grace Ivy Lattimore.

After a long wait and a lot of heartache, my oldest brother Phil & his wife Tammi welcomed Grace into the world 10 days early at 1:48PM on Saturday 12th March 2011 – weighing in at 5lb 15oz and 46cm long!

Claire, Hugo, Evie and I dropped into St. Vincents Hospital in Toowoomba on the way back to the Gold Coast to meet our newest niece/cousin and it was such a happy meeting.

Grace is a gorgeous little girl and I’m now looking forward to Evie having another cousin a similar age to play with in the near future. There is just something completely amazing about meeting a fresh baby, it is the miracle of birth realised in the flesh so to speak.

Evie, 7 Months & Smiling

Evie looking through a mega-balloonIt seems like I only just wrote about Evie being six months old, however that was a month ago already!

December was an eventful month for Evie, as she learned how to balance sitting up on her own. While by no means an expert, as she’d still over balance periodically – I think Evie really enjoyed being able to sit up as it gave her a different perspective on the world; after all, you’re bound to get sick of laying on your stomach or back sooner or later. While Evie can roll over front and back now, she is still completely uninterested in getting up onto all fours and crawling – maybe next month?

In addition to learning to sit up unassisted and balance, Evie also began using her legs more and more as well. This saw her standing up, like a big girl – though still with a lot of support from Claire and I.

Eight months here we come!

Best Men’s Razor

Schick RazorsA couple weeks ago, Stephen mentioned to me at work that Schick had a promotion running in facebook in which you’d receive a free Schick Hydro 5 – the latest Schick men’s non-disposable¬†shaving razor, just for liking the Schick for Men Australia facebook page.

Like most males, I’ve tried a whole swag of different razors from cheap disposable razors, various Gillette, Schick and electric razors. For my skin, I find that a razor gives me less irritation then an electric razor and for quite some time now I’ve settled on the Schick Quattro Titanium as my razor of choice. It is sharp, a nice flexible head and it gives a close shave.

After trying the new Schick Hyrdo 5 razor, I’ve now found a replacement and my new favourite razor. While the head of the razor feels a little bigger than the Quattro Titanium, the razor glides through stubble and over your skin. I was particularly impressed with the closeness of the first pass as well, it was nearly completely smooth and I had even less irritation than I normally would with the Quattro Titanium.

Schick are suggesting that the new Schick Hyrdo 5 is the best shave for your skin and I whole heartedly agree. I really do think it is the best men’s razor I’ve ever used, certainly for my skin. If you do use a razor, I’d recommend you pick on up next time – if for no other reason than to see what the latest shaving innovation is – it might surprise you!
