Another little update...

Firstly, we are SO VERY PROUD of our little man, Eli. Over the last 5 days he has learnt how to say 'baby' and now he really thinks he's the cleverest little thing in the world. This afternoon he walked around the house saying 'bay-be' over and over again... SO CUTE! I just want to gobble him all up! I will try to get Greg to get it on his phone camera tomorrow and upload it to YouTube so you can all see how cute he is!

Here's a couple more piccies of our Princess Lani from the last few days. Gosh, it's hard to believe that its been almost a week - gee whizz!!
Having a little sleep yesterday, 5 days old: (notice all that pink, lovin seeing that!)
All dressed and warm after bathtime today, 6 days old:
And check out these GORGEOUS flowers we received from Greg's NEW workplace... these are the prettiest flowers I have EVER received... they've looked great in our loungeroom, but sadly they are dying :(

One more day with Greg at home to (mostly!) help. I think the hardest thing will be if I need to run after Eli while I'm feeding.... eek. I'm sure we'll all be fine though!

Well that's about all for now. Lani is just doing perfect. Love her to BITS!!

thanks for sharing the pics with us.
i found that if i read a book to matt while i was feeding jake, he was more than happy to sit still while i feed bubs.


p.s. i added your blog as a link on mine if that's ok with you.

Hi Nat, I know I'm a bit late with my congratulations - just got back from a trip to NZ yesterday. So wanted to drop in and say how thrilled I am to see your beautiful baby girl! She's just gorgeous!

Tam said...

Ah, sweet, she's just so precious. Looks a lot like Eli did, too. I just know that those two are going to be such good friends.

Oooh I think she looks like you Natt! It's so lovely having yummy bundles of pink isn't it :D Good on Eli for being such a good boy for his mummy and daddy with the new baby in the house. I thought it ever so cute that whenever Asha cries Joshua tells me She wants milk. Glad to see all of you are settling in well

Chrissy said...

Awwww, she's just ever so gorgeous Natti love!! Her little face makes my tummy do flip flops and yearn for another, she's just so adorably pink and pretty!!

Give your little Eli a cuddle from me ok, he IS just the cleverst little one year old hey! :)

Love to you!

hi beautiful ;) She is such a darling and Eli is soooooooooooooo cuper cute!!! How's Jai coping? Bet he's being very helpful! Well, I'm here when Greg goes back to work - not that i can be THERE to help - but if you need an ear, you know where to find one!
The flowers were BEAUTIFUL!
I have many memories of walking around the house feeding ethan while trying to watch out for liji when he was 14 months and making sure stass (almost 3) was getting on and off the toilet properly! lol!!! The Lord will enable you honey!!!
Love you all,
Lus x

I can just imagine it Lusi! I think Lani will have to get used to 'eating on the go' while I'm walking around after Eli too... :D

miss~nance said...

Katie Toland said...

she is so sweet
heres what i did with lilly at the start while i was feeding emily
and i know she is much older than eli
but...tv on for her, a snack on the kitchen bench where she could get it so it was there and ready, and then i had different piles of toys lieing around the lounge room floor so she could change, i changed the piles everyday for a while....and then she was just ok with mum being busy...i think i only did this for about 3 weeks

Nat it was lovely having a chat with you last Saturday night in the Scrapboxx chat room.

It's not normally that busy but due to the cyber crop it was pretty full on.

These photos of are adorable as is Lani. I am so happy for you all and glad that she is settling in well.

How cute and clever of Elijah to learn how to say baby. A special moment worth scrapping about.

I hope Jaidyn is enjoying his school holidays and having some fun.

Take care and good luck for when Greg goes back to work. I am sure you will get into a good routine.

Love from Susan (smiles1965) at Scrapboxx

Ahhhhh more Lani pics :-D Hey there little darling!!! :-D Oh and Lusi I sooooo know the walking around with bub on boob and rescuing kids out of things!!! Why is it that the one being toilet trained is ALWAYS going to the toilet when you feed!!! And then bring the pants to you saying "put these on" Putting on jocks on little wriggly boys one handed doesn't work LOL. So far I think that's about the only thing I've found you can't do while feeding LOL. You'll be great Nat!!! & Lusi had it in one, God doesn't give you what you can't handle :-D

Hi Nat, I just wanted to say huge congrats on the birth of your daughter - she is such a beautiful little princess! As a mum to 2 boys - then getting my little girl - isnt it awesome to be surrounded in pink! And your birth story is one heck of a story to tell her when she is older! Your daughter is sooo beautiful!! Congrats to all of your family.
