Its been a while

Wow - I can't believe it has been over a year since I last blogged.  So much has happened.  My last post was about hospitals and it ended after my own hospitalisation.  Well I have to say that something good did come out of that - it was rather unexpected but never-the-less a fantastic thing.  I was taken off all medication while I was recovering.  I fell pregnant with our third baby!

We now have a beautiful baby girl who joined our family in January this year.  The boys are completely smitten and smother her in kisses everyday.  Even when she is sleeping.  And they want another baby - so I think its safe to say that they are quite happy with the addition to the family.

DS1 started kindergarten this year and is going well.  I miss him though and really enjoyed having him home over the school holidays.  We didn't do anything big - just movies and bowling and cooking and going to the indoor play centre but it was lovely.  He and his  brother also had two sleep overs with Nanny and Poppy which gave me some one on one time with DD which was great too.

I have to say that I am loving being a mum more each day.  I try to remember everyday to make the most of it as they will grow up too fast and this will all be over.  I savour every cuddle.  I don't mind being woken during night (mind you I am not so good when I am napping during the day). I enjoy all the smiles. I am consciously trying to be less cranky.  Take my time with things whenever possible.  I hope the kids grow up and remember the good fun we have.  I scrap lots - to be able to show them all the fun things we have done and just how much they mean to me. 

I am trying to make a better me - I am exercising most everyday and eating a lot better and hope to be around for the kids for a long long time.

I have learnt some pretty big lessons in this last year and will come back to those soon - but for now I should get some rest (I have to remind myself that sleeping is not wasting time). 

Sweet dreams

This one was easy to pick the photos for, my DD - hope you like it!

I printed this picture of DS2 on regular A4 paper for a change.  I like the way this page has turned out.  The blue contrasts well with the black and white.
