easter and all that

Easter's here (how did that creep up so fast?), it's nearly April and Rory is now just over three weeks old. Time is flying - days go so fast and nothing's getting done except for that which concerns Rory, which is okay for me!

The last couple of days have been full of visits - first to my old workplace yesterday in Burwood East (I don't miss the drive to and from AT ALL!) where Rory was introduced to workmates - and the recently purchased babysling worked a treat. This morning we visited fire brigade friends Rob and Jo and this afternoon we visited the girls in Balnarring.

Now I'm paying bills online and am exhausted. Time for a nap.

something to talk about

"I've been dreaming
of the things
I've learnt about a boy

(Something to Talk About - Badly Drawn Boy)

It's been a week and 2 days since Rory was born. After a long inducement, which started Monday 25th Feb, he made his entrance in the small hours on Wednesday (27th Feb) morning. Our much anticipated, long awaited son weighed in at 9lb, 6oz and entitled his mother to many stitches.

In the days that followed, we've had many phone calls, cards and parcels. We've slowly become accustomed to this individual who now rules the household. We've begun the habits of sleeping/changing/feeding shift changes. We've adopted new measures for settling and soothing. We've learnt that 3am television sucks.

Still wouldn't change it for the world, we're both utterly, utterly in love with this gorgeous little monkey. Still can't believe that he's here.
