a new perspective

It feels like only yesterday that I lay in bed with my new baby, cuddled up in the warmth while the rain fell down for an entire week. But no, it was almost five months ago.


Poet is pure joy. She has this fabulous ability to look you straight in the eye, lean forward, and get exactly what she wants. She giggles and squeals and gives the very best hugs. She radiates happiness and attracts attention wherever we go (this makes shopping a rather lengthy process).

Poet, Poe Poe, Poppet, Little One. We love you!

  12. It does seem such a short time ago to me too. But the proof is right there, in that sweet face. Surely our perception of time changes once we become parents? School years seemed to take a lot longer than Mama years. (And I loved school.)

  26. people used to say this about my family all the time when all four of us kids plus mum and dad were out and we (ie, from the oldest child perspective) thought it a bit strange .. but you can see jodi and daniel in che and poet.

    To us people would say "you all have such blue eyes" or "you must have strong genes because you all look similar" .. and we were used to looking at each other, so we saw the differences. It is only when I look back,having moved out of home, or at my youngest sister who is 12 years younger than me, that I notice the similarities. And I love that.

    ps. I remember reading you'd like more children at some point. as the eldest of four I (am obviously biased)... my family is wonderful. people did often used to say 'wow you have a big family'. When we moved with all four of us and E (youngest) was 6 months, Mum and Dad would "ration" which children got to go into each open home... and our "people mover" ie, car that fits 8 people, we got second hand and it had the numberplate XS (and then numbers). ... XS as in excess as in excess children :-) Miss E was a surprise (but for me, it was my dream come true. truly. mum would ask the night before my birthday 'what would you wish for your birthday?' and it was always, always, always .. a little sister. Mum and Dad said our family was complete and I did still wish for a little sister. I remember when they told us mum was pregnant (we knew something good was up) and I also remember when mum had the 6 month scan. the big scan, where they can tell the gender. she rings me at the family bach where I was with my cousins. I was expecting the phone call.. the phone didn't ring often at the beach house. I answered and said "mum is it a boy or a girl?" and she said "georgi the baby is healthy and you are going to have a little sister". I relayed the sister part on extremely well but my aunty had to talk to mum to get the healthy details. that is how my dream came true.

    sorry for this essay comment.. but families of four/five .. however many children are wonderful and i felt i had to tell you about my childhood dream that became a reality. x georgi

  28. She is absolutely adorable! And that outfit is the cutest ever, I love it! I know exactly what you mean, I have a 4 month old and it feels like only yesterday we brought her home. I can't believe that was back in August, that it was summer, and now it's December and cold. If it weren't for the changing seasons, I may not believe the passage of time at all, she still feels so new to me in many ways.

    Enjoy that beautiful child of yours!
