I’m Back!

Soooo much has happened since i last blogged.

I have had baby number 5! Little Levi is 12 weeks old now. He is an absolute delight. So cruisy, sleeping through already…he has just fit right in! I am enjoying snuggling him! He has only been in the pram once, i carry him in the sling whenever we go out!

My pregnancy was really tough, displaced hips (to the point that i couldn’t walk for a while) dislocated tailbone (couldn’t sit down comfortably!) , sick right through…but the labour was awesome, i can truthfully say i enjoyed every moment of it!!! Oh, except for the week leading up to my induction, i had contractions (my non-painful, but exhausting ones) every 10 minutes for the whole week! Every time i rolled over in the night i would wake up thinking my waters had broken, and i was to scared to get up to go to the loo in case the baby decided to come! (For those of you who don’t know, i have VERY quick labours. Ruby was born 25 MINUTES after my first pain!!!)

Anyway, here is our new little man….Levi, born 27th march, 8lb6oz (my biggest)

I have been crafting non-stop, sewing – sling, quilts, clothes. Knitting – a dress for Levi (before he was born and i thought he was a girl!!!) Soakers, tops for Levi. Painting canvases.  I will post some photos this week.

And a big thank you to Tania at myrtle and Eunice, Chickummyjig arrived today…He hasn’t been put down once, the kids LOVE him! I will have to steal him back while they are sleeping! And i LOVE the card you sent, your cards are beautiful.

 and finally…3 days after Levi was born PinkyPie had her kittens! a litter of 4, Jarrod and Zoe watched the whole thing, and even had to help deliver one!!! (it was breech) Here is Levi meeting Striper(He now lives at Uncle Blake and Aunty Jenna’s house)…

    Oh. My. Goodliness. I mean, I KNEW you were busy – but not THAT busy! Hearty congratulations to you all, (PinkyPie included)! Levi is a very sweet bundle. Er, where do you get the recipe for such short labours?

    Excellent to hear the Chickummyjig has fit right in…

      I wish i knew Tania!!! I would be a VERY rich lady! My Mum had fairly quick labours, and my Nana lived accross the Road from the maternity home and they didn’t even manage to get a nurse across to her in time when she was having my mum!

    Hi Jess, thanks for the reminder about no scissors on the plane. I’ve been traveling quite a bit this year and would enjoy being able to craft a bit during all those hours on planes. Luckily, my journal keeps me busy — so far no restrictions against colored markers :).
