Since about 6 weeks you’ve been wearing size 000. In fact you are already too long for some of the 000s. You are really starting to vocalise, smile and interact with toys. You love to tell us stories about everything that happens. Edward is fascinated by you and each time you make a sound he […]

Lucy at 6 weeks


You are an amazing little girl. Since 6 weeks you have been sleeping 5-9 hours at a stretches at night. In the last week or so you’ve begun to vocalise, much more so since you had your frenotomy on Monday (11th August). You have been feeding well but are still adjusting to a correct latch. […]

You love to join in with the animal letter sound songs, art and animal action poems at school time each day.

You try to help with Emilys little Lego and she’s finally realised that you are trying to help, not […]

Phill, Emily and Edward headed to church this morning leaving me at home to rest (and not share the bugs with 300 other people at church!). Emily practised for her part in Family Service next weekend. Today I spent the whole of the day in bed and we called a Doctor to just check I […]

Another mild day in Perth, I thought I was supposed to be summer, but I won’t complain. After an early start with Edward and then Phill leaving on a trip to site we had a nice quiet day. Today we did the washing and tried to spend a little bit of time outside while it […]

A false start: December 1


So this year I got my dates wrong. For some reason I had it stuck in my head that Saturday was December 1. Phill was wondering why I wanted him to get the tree down early, but he didn’t mention it. As we drove home from Christmas shopping I heard an add for uni admissions […]
