I have a new niece. Her name is Sadie Joy and she is beautiful. She was born this morning at 12:30am via C-Section. 8lb 2oz, 49cm long. My sister Clare is doing so well and as is her hubby Matt. We went and saw them tonight and she is just beautiful. So much hair and gorgeous squishy smooshy cheeks.
Thought I'd upload some videos of her for my mum and dad and also some pics!

Tomorrow hey, I'll be back to update tomorrow. Pfft!! What a slacker hey.
Well I'm about a week overdue for this update but better late than never as they say.
Life is finally starting to return to some sort of normalcy around here. Andrew's reports are done and Joel and I are over all the sickness that's been running rife through us. We have pretty much written May off - a bout of gastro each and two colds for us. Hopefully that will be it for the year!! I think we've had our fair share of the lurgies.
Some exciting news for me - I got a job!! I've been looking for a part time job for a few weeks now. One where I can still spend most of the day with Joel. Got a position with a organisation called Australian Homecare. It's run by the MS Society and it provides homecare/personal care for clients in their own homes, who struggle with a range of issues, such as MS, intellectual disability, physical disability, etc.. So I will be doing shifts mainly in the afternoons and on weekends. I'm excited about it but also very nervous as it's been a good 5 years since I've done anything like this. I have an induction/orientation morning tomorrow. So yeah. Cool for me, hey!
Apart for the sickness, Joel is doing really well and is constantly making me smile and laugh with his funny little antics. Some of the things he enjoys doing at the moment is going into our bedroom and standing up at the window (on his tippy toes - so cute) and looking out on the world. He's fascinated by it.
He also enjoys putting anything and everything into his mouth - toys, leaves, little bits of dirt, fluff, newspaper, the phone book. I've never vacuumed so much in my life (which presents another problem, as Joel is frightened of the vac cleaner!)
He's growing up ever so quickly and in 2 weeks today will be 1!! ONE!!! WHAT!!! Have no idea where the last year went. We are having a little party for him - going to have a bit of a jungle theme, like his room so I am busying myself with little details and preparations for that.
I've discovered a new scrapbooking website - Aussie Scrapbooking. Such a cool website with lots of great giveways, info and pretty things to look at. I won this Scenic Route prize pack there last week. I got it in the mail yesterday and it is so yummy.
Have managed to fit a bit of scrapbooking in. Spent Saturday night with some of the girls from Scrapniques, That was heaps of fun - only managed to get one LO done. Really need to learn to
scrap and talk at the same time!
That's about it for now. I really want to try and update more (but I'm not making any promises)
Till next time
