Another year, another new home

Here we go, moving again. In her four years sweet B is now up to six homes in three different cities across two different continents. My husband and I had the very opposite in our upbringings. His Mum only eighteen months ago sold after fifty years and my Dad still lives in my childhood home. My hope for the next 5 years is for us to not move as often and for all three girls to have the opportunity to stay at the one (fantastic) primary school .

There is so much to do, but tomorrow I would love to take a little time alone with my yarn to become reacquainted after all this time.

Another milestone today. Darling H is four months old. I can't even put into words how full of love I am for our little poppet. I can't think about her without breaking into a smile. She is not feeling so jolly today as she has her first ear infection. Poor little sweety. I am optimistic that she will be better in no time powered by mother's milk.

Oh and she has started solids. Early? very. Guided by me? NO! She has been eating the steri strips that hold her orthodontic plate in place. The whiskers from my last post. I was beside myself watching her pull them off just as quickly as I put them on. The above image was one of my failed attempts to foil her- train tracks that took me longer to put on than her to take off.  Thankfully one of the orthodontists at the RCH came up with the great suggestion to put some of the duoderm base tape over the top of the steri strips. No more surprises at nappy change time. She can still take her plate out, but that is a whole different ball game. Before we know it, this will be a thing of the past. Time really does fly.


  1. Good luck with your moving again. Your little one has certainly grown-hope all is going well:)

  2. I hope all went well with the move, and you all are settling in well. Look forward to catching up when your up for it

  3. I found your blog through the CCS yahoo group. I have had a hard time keeping up recently since we just recently moved, our second time in the past 12 months as well. I am hoping we can settle in and be here for a while.

    My little guy, Aiden, was born with a Unilateral Cleft lip and palate and also wore the NAM (the device with the whisker tape - LOVE IT!) :) he will be two in March and is doing fabulous. I look forward to reading more about your precious little one and the rest of the family in the future.

    Hope you have a blessed day.
