Georgina started interacting with us not too long ago (She turns 3 months on 25/4). She breaks into this gorgeous smile as soon as you start talking to her and she even replies! (I must take a vid of this some day soon!) Pity she isnt giving us any winning number or else we’d be debt free by now.
She is always up for a chat and has a pot full of facial emotions to boot!
Mona Lisa look
Lump of Grump look
Deer-caught-in-the-headlights look (But tis really Mummy who forgot to turn the flash off – Sorry darl! And that’s how I got the evil lump of grump look by the way.)
And then of course, we have the flying kick just coz she can!
I cannot believe how time has passed me by…..doesnt feel like I was still preggers some JUST 2 months ago. How truly bizarre but time and tide wait for no man. And if I dont buck up and get more shots of her, I might miss out on it forever!

Going through some of the shots we took when Georgina was born, came across this lovely family shot Mum took of us.
NRL’s Parramatta Eels should be darn proud to have us as fan!!
Only 3 days old and already a Parra fan – GO THE EELS!!!!

Yesterday was Georgina’s baptism so she is officially one of us. Sadly, we have no shots to show off yet coz the USB card is acting up but I’m hoping to get it going after today, if not we will just print out some copies at the shops.
The baptism was done on Saturday during the Easter Virgil and I only have God to thank that she slept for most part of it! It started at 7pm and finished after 10pm – it was the longest mass I have ever attended and the cathedral wasnt even full!!! That was another surprise….really.
I’m really hoping that the pix are fine coz we have shots of the Bishop holding her in his full garment. Fingers crossed, all will be ok. At least we got a candle to remind us of this day but we were also thinking of getting some mexican silver something similar to commemorate this beautiful celebration. Please pray that we find it tomorrow.
O and HAPPY EASTER TO ONE AND ALL!!

Ever since Brandon’s hair started to grow longer, people always thought I had 3 girls (this is pre-Georgina of course). And even though I dressed him up like a little boy, no one thought he was one. I was more than happy to give him a haircut long before this but Ted kept saying no because he had beautiful hair and I do not doubt that one bit. BUT with his long hair, poor fella is always sweaty and while he may just be a kid, I’m sure it must be so terrible to be sleeping like that. So finally, Mum and I decided once and for all, it had to go.
My pretty handsome little boy (at home, at the front door, waiting to step out)
Absolutely stoked coz it was his first bus ride but had no idea what was lying ahead of him. Mind you he didnt want to cut his hair but a bit of bribing solved that. And it only cost me $2! lol
He was an absolutely gem!!! Sat quietly all through the hair cut, didnt have a clue what was happening and the lady who was cutting his hair did a might fine job of cutting his hair so quickly!!
My handsome little man after – at home, totally engrossed watching tv.
Apaprently, he looks just like me when I was his age and makes it more scary that we both had the same haircut too!! lol

I cannot believe it but Mum leaves in just 2 weeks!! Not too sure how 3 months just zipped passed so fast but it has. So on 24/3, we had a family get-together to celebrate Easter (early) and for everyone to meet up before Mum went home.
The do was at my cousin Jenny’s place at Long Jetty – pity we didnt get to dip ourselves in the water. Maybe next time.
On our way!! The travel DVD player was the best ever Christmas present my brother in law gave us. Life saver really!!! lol
Some rare cam-whoring going on….
We left home at about 10am and at we Jenny’s about 12 noon so apparently we made it in good time. Such a good Ted for getting us there and home safely seeing that he had worked all night the night before!! See, God is good….. Anyway, the first thing that caught the kids eyes was the pinball machine!
KR concentrating with all her might
Arianna’s turn with Freddie and John looking on – not sure how well she did though.
Aunty Jenny finally gets a cuddle and is showered with loads of smiles. Why not when u take centre stage, sweetheart!
Then we had a balloon maker sitting around so poor Aunty Vicki got conned into pumping up the model balloons.
KR has a go at making something
Arianna hard at work
She actually made something close to a dog which was surprising once she figured out how the modelling works! Such a clever little Cheeks.
We finally left about 4pm coz it took us nearly an HOUR to get the whole tribe strapped up. All in all, it was a pretty good day especially when you get to spend it with family.

I didnt think it would happen so quickly but looks like Arianna is now part of mu club. Yup, she now wears specs because she’s got astigmatism. Poor thing didnt stand a chance coz both Ted and I have it and I’ve had to wear glasses since I was 12 years old whereas Ted was wearing glasses but they were corrective ones and now he doesnt need it anymore.
We’re really hoping that these glasses will help correct her eyes so that she doesnt need to wear them when she grows up. Some times I wonder if she is getting teased at at school but she says no, so one can hope that she is still coping…..

WAAAHHOOOOO!!! The dream has come through….
YUP – officially houseowners on 21/2/2013.
It’s such a bittersweet moment to be honest. I’ve been waiting for this moment for so long and now that the moment has arrived, while I am SOOOO excited about this new purchase, I cannot but be reminded that our mortgage now has been increased! lol It’s just one thing after the other, eh?
Now, packing up has been stepped up a notch – we move on 5/3/2013!!!

The first time G had her bath at the hospital, she screamed as if the midwife was trying to drown her or something. But since she’s been home, she has been absolutely loving her baths!
As you can see, someone is totally in her ZONE. I reckon she actually fell asleep!!
She could soak all day in the bath given the choice – Daddy’s girl for sure! It’s so funny to see how calm and relax she is in it. It must be a darn good bath.

Ok, not super proud of this but I caved in. After another insane bout of continuous feeding from 12-2am simply because she needed something in her mouth, I got out the magic plastic piece and won me a few extra hours of sleep.
I have to shamelessly admit that those extra hours are precious!!! And although I had not wanted to resort to this, sometimes a mummy’s got to do what a mummy’s got to do. I’ve only used the dummy at night as that’s when she really gets into the feeding and then just feeds and feeds and feeds. It may be a growth spurt but as I feed on demand, I think she is getting more than enough – her wees and poos speak for themselves!!
So now my new best friend is Mr. Pacifier.

Gosh, time has really flown!! Can’t believe the little miss is already 2 weeks old.
Seen here wearing a mama-made onesie of course!
She has been an absolute dream…. I really cannot complain more except when I’m engorged and she still rather sleep and drain me dry! Then again, she tends to pull such stunts from 12-2am which normally leaves me really worn out…. >.< I’ve been thinking of caving in and giving her the dummy only at nights to help her fall asleep. But I havent decided coz I feel guilty about it.
Other than that, the kids have been crazy over her. Especially KR and Brandon but especially KR. I can normally find her fussing and playing with bub and always wanting to hold her. It’s really very heartwarming.
