a Ta-Dah of a different kind!

Hello everyone!  I'm back in the land of the living after a very hectic and up heaved couple of months.  The house is nearly finished and looking fab.  We've been able to move back in after over a month bunking with my Mum & Dad.

But the big ta-dah moment is the birth of our little baby girl!

On the 12/12 at 8.54 am Amelie Matisse was born.  Now I'm breaking my own rule here and I will let you have a little peek at my gorgeous princess.  She was 3.4kgs (7 pounds 9) and 50 cm long.


Big Brother Guy is so proud - as is Daddy Guy.  So far our beautiful little bundle is being very well behaved and doing all those things that bubbys do - sleeping, eating, burping, pooping.  Apparently one's 30+ body doesn't bounce back quite as quickly from a C section as my 25+ body did - but oh well, a small price to pay.

And for a touch of something crafty - check out these gorgeous plaques that my friend Amanda made.  she has the most amazing eye for detail and colour - although she claims to be craft-impaired.

Congratulations!! Sorry i missed this, such a silly time of year, i was just as nuts as you having babies too, only 10 years ago. I didn't have C sections but having all 4 babies in my 20s was a breeze. Can't wait to see you all (i'm here for 5 weeks) yay, love Posie
