Loving This Week...

Image
I wholeheartedly believe that no matter what is happening in your life, there is always something that you can be thankful for... no matter how simple it is. 

As usual I am linking up with: PaisleyJade
1) Loving the safe arrival of our new niece - Indiana April (Indie) arrived at 10:30am this morning after a 38.5 hour labour... weighing in at 6lbs14! Sharlene did it all naturally, and we're very proud - what a trooper! Can't wait to meet Indie tomorrow afternoon ;-)! Ahhh - newborn cuddles, nothing better! Photos to come!
2) Playcentre and PAINT... the latest favourite thing for Button at Playcentre is the paint; but not just painting the paper - painting herself! Here is what she came home looking like on Monday (and the Wednesday session was even worse *grin*)!

Did you notice that even the hair is green!
3) The gorgeous weather this week... loving the sunshine, and the promise that summer this year is going to be long, hot and dry. Ahhhh - love, love, love!
4) Loving the longer sle…

Pregnancy...

Image
Oh - they can be SO different... makes me wonder what this wee child will be like! Totally different to their big sister I would imagine (especially if the pregnancies are anything to go by)!

Take this for example: Left - me at 18 weeks with Button Right - me last week at 11 weeks
Anyone else notice the SIZE difference... I am bigger this time at 11 weeks, than I was at 18 weeks previously! Seriously?!? I am not even out of my first trimester, and couldn't have hid it if I tried (or wanted to - thankfully we're not really worried about hiding these things)! I am HUGE; it had better be an All Black I growing in there ;-)! Oh, and just so you know; I started out this pregnancy almost 10 kilo's LIGHTER than I was when I got pregnant with Button, so it's not literal weight gain either (you can see it in my face in these photos)! Weird huh, I never believed I would lose that kind of weight after a baby...
The scary thing is - there are twins in my family... like serious (copious…

Just a short one this week, as it is already after 9:30pm; which is way past my bedtime these days!
1) We have FINALLY got the hang of pushing and steering the pram... it has taken a long time, and much frustration on all parts; but it is now a favoured toy and much treasured by all members of our family!



2) The Rugby World Cup - GO ALL BLACKS!!!!!


3) Our very patient pussy cat... after having been away for 5 days, Button was ever so excited to see Pixel. She spent about 10 minutes cuddling and tormenting her when we first arrived home!

7 Years...

Image
It has been 7 years of married life... if I said 'blissful' married life you'd all know I was lying, we're not perfect. However I can tell you, as much as there have been some hard years -  they have still been the best 7 years of my life; and I wouldn't have it any other way!
Thank you for always loving me - through thick and thin (quite literally *grin*), for knowing me almost better than I know myself, for being the best man for the job... I couldn't imagine life beside anyone else, and I couldn't imagine a better Daddy for a precious girl, and the new babe to come.
Praying the next 7 years just get better and better, and some of those dreams we have been dreaming together start coming to fruition!
Love you Mr. C xx

Going Computer-Free

Image
Button and I are heading away for a week... so I will be going computer-free during this time...
I may see you on my return, or I may enjoy it so much that I take a longer break!
Either way - enjoy your week, we'll be relishing being spoilt and looked after by my parents ;-)!


Lizzy's Letters - GONE!

Image
Just reminding you that as of September, my old blog 'Lizzy's Letters' has now been deleted and is GONE!
You will no longer be able to find it... I can only hope you have made the change ;-)! Guessing you will have IF you're reading this though!


Loving, Loving, Loving

1) Loving that I can finally share with you all that:

I AM PREGNANT!!!!!! 9 weeks along now, due 13th April 2012. Button will only be two weeks off turning two when this bubs is due... We're thrilled!!!!!!!!
2) Loving having my Mum staying with me this week... I haven't had any major morning sickness at all, but I have never known such fatigue! So she has come up to give me a hand with Button for a few days:

3) Loving that, after we gave Button a 'quick' trim this morning... (read: she moved and now the fringe is shorter than planned and slightly crooked - ooops) we went and found the album that had hair from my first trim in it, at 18 months (Button is 16 months) and our hair is the exact same colour! How cool is that!!!!

The slightly crooked and very short fri…
