… Alice has settled in beautifully. The past few day’s have seen an improvement in her ability to self-wind, which has meant a lot less walking around with her upright and propped up on our chests. She’s been feeding well and giving us big, hearty, appreciative burps in return. She’s getting stronger and more alert […]
Baby Eyes, by Bernard Shaw Large Baby eyes smiling joyfully at me, Baby eyes as brown as can be. Two deep pools most innocent and bright, To me are symbols of sheer delight. May I greet you every single day? For you are sunshine on my way. Other people see you smile so sweet, All […]
Alice, like all newborns, really is the best kind of time waster. Stuff the baby sleep books telling me to put my baby to bed in her cot – whilst I can hold her in my arms and watch her sleep, I will! But how do I get anything done? Well, my Natures Sway sling […]
A neighbour dropped round the other morning and brought with her every new Mum’s most desired gift – a large coffee. As I gratefully sipped the fuel of latte we chatted about life with a newborn third time round. She also has a baby – a few month’s older, as well as two other children […]
The sun greeted Wellington for a change yesterday morning and pre-made plans to meet some girl-friends at the pool were laid to one side as the sun was just too good to miss. Just as well we grabbed the chance to enjoy it, since today is like a throw back to winter. As I write […]
Summer nights and the girls are usually asleep around 9 o’clock. Thankfully, they sleep till nearly 9 in the morning, so hubbie’s been having to set the alarm clock for work – for the first time in nearly 5 years! We’re really loving the evenings and the stress free mornings. There’s such a sense of […]
Sophie had her ‘Plunket‘ check (health-nurse) this week and it was really just a formality as I know she is absolutely fine on all levels. When it came to her ‘weigh-in’ Sophie started to cry (a rarity for her!) and I said to Sophie, ‘Well, never mind, it’s really not necessary as you’re obviously not […]
Sophie says: ‘More!’ The first time I said, ‘More’ was when I wanted to feed our cats. Pouring the cat biscuits out in the morning is so much fun. I also love pouring water and filling up bottles in the bath to make lots of bubbles. Blowing bubbles in the bath and at the swimming […]
The summer evenings have been tempting the unstoppable Lee girls to frequently stay up past their bedtimes. Last weekend Mummy and Daddy gave up all hope… Daddy went out for a jog and Mummy painted some pebbles. Finally Sophie crashed, but Charlotte took a little longer to wind down!
Five month’s old and real food is yum, yum, yummy!
Another beautiful day in harbour Capital. It’s always like this in Wellington
Our Grandmas are now back in the UK and we’re having to all cope on our own. Sob.
Cock-a-doodle-doo, the chicken wants a poo!
Hurray! Grandma Aspinall has arrived to give me lots of cuddles and coos!
