Loving Life

3 kids is so much better than having just 2, I feel like I'm back to normal, I can do a bit of housework without it wearing me out, 3 is so much easier than having 2 and being pregnant! I've so enjoyed the last couple of weeks, I'm glad that I'll never be pregnant again, but I will miss having a newborn again for sure. Charlie is a laid back quiet baby (so far) and even though he doesn't follow the guidelines for feeding or sleeping that a 'normal' newborn is meant to,(feeding for 3 hours and then sleeping for 3 hours are not what your 'meant to do') he's very easy and getting very predictable which I'm very impressed with considering he is only 2.5 weeks old! Wearing 000 suits : ( I can't believe how much he's grown already!

2.5 weeks ago James was my baby, now look at him!

One beautiful boy, pity about the scowly face : )

More Presents!!

Well we've received lots of gifts for Charlie Bear since we came home but this is the only one I've remembered to take photos of!
My naughty sister has sent me more things! A beautiful soft elephant for Charlie a very cute bootie for my pandora bracelet, and most importantly a handmade card, how she finds the time to sleep is beyond me, between working crazy hours as a nurse, a second job in an office, making amazing cakes for all her friends birthdays/christenings/weddings, and seeing her boyfriend occasionally!
She's crazy but shes the best sister I could ever ask for : )

Home Alone...

My darling Mummy went home this morning, so now its me and the three little boys, a scary thought but so far were doing ok, big boys are watching cartoons eating their morning tea, and my beautiful little man is having his morning nap. I'm not sure how I'm going to cope everyday but I guess we'll just take it a day at a time, or maybe a feed at a time ; )
My beautiful Charlie Bear, and nope I don't think there are any photos of he and I yet!
Mumma has been invaluable, before I've even noticed something needs doing around the house she's already done it, she's up earlier than the big boys and has been letting me and Charlie snooze while she feeds them and gets them ready for the day, makes me a cup of tea once I'm up, puts the big boys shoes on and hats on, gets them in and out of the car, makes them lunch, gets their craft stuff out, reads them books, I could go on and on all day! Michael told me last night if he took the car to work today she wont be able to get to the airport and she'll have to stay a bit longer : )
I think he's ready for us to be a family of 5, but he knows how much I'll miss mum and how much help she is.

She's laughing at me, can you tell?

I'm going home for a visit in November, so she'll have me and the three little boys invading her house for 2 weeks, I can't wait!

Where are you baby?! Its Fathers day!

Well its Fathers day and here I am, still waiting for little Charlie to grace us with his presence!
I'm not shocked or surprised but I am getting very sick of myself, so is Michael. He told me he cant wait to have this baby so he can have his wife back, and I completely understand! It's all ok though because my mumma gets here today! Yay!
Michael's off work, everything is washed, dryed and put away apart from the car seat cover which is in the washing machine right now. James has his 'baby' a gift he'll get from Charlie when we get home, Jack is getting a new service centre with a car wash and ramps for your cars. Its very cool and I think it will keep both he and James amused for at least 5 minutes!
Michael didn't really get any special treatment for fathers day no gift, no breakfast in bed, I feel bad if I make him anything naughty because hes doing so well with Jenny Craig, but he is getting a new baby on Wednesday so I think that's gift in it self!
I told him he could do whatever he wanted to today and I wouldn't complain or whine, so he's off on a motorbike ride with his fishing rod for some quiet time to himself. I think its just what he needs.
I managed to get a quick photo of the three of them this morning before he rode away, can you tell Michael dressed them this morning? I didn't say a thing, little bogans with there singlets on ; )
James is still sick and so unimpressed with everything at the moment, usually he is jumping to have his photo taken : ( poor little duck, he isn't even sleeping well during the night. Most mornings Michael asks me what time did the noisy one (if he's not talking he's making sound of some sort, usually race cars or trains or something, he's so very loud all the time!) get in bed with us? I don't mind him coming in when he is sick, there's nothing like a mumma cuddle when you feel like hell. As long as hes better before Charlie gets here or our bed is going to get very squishy I think!
Hopefully my next post will be with a picture of our newest and final baby, I am so glad to be pregnant and having another baby but I'm also very glad that this will be the last time I will be in this much pain and discomfort.
