I'm back.....

I'm back....jet-lagged, but back....
What can I say...the trip was bloody fantastic!!! The long flights not so much, hubby really struggled with those, economy seats are not all that comfy but who can afford to travel any other class....certainly not us!! 
Alaska was out of this world...loved it and I would go back tomorrow if I could. So much more to see and do there.  The cruise was great, wasn't a fan of the ship. The crew on board were great, as was the food, the people....but the layout of the ship was terrible, we weren't fans of it at all. 

Vancouver was great too, we really enjoyed our stay there. Saw heaps and even managed to catch up with a long time MSN messenger friend who travelled way out of his way to catch up with us, that was awesome of him. 

I thought the cold would really bother me but it didn't, my scarves and jackets saved me from freezing.

England was was picture perfect in Surrey where we were. 
It was like looking at a postcard/picture then stepping into it. 
We didn't get to see as much as I would have liked due to our host being ill and us not wanting to leave him on his own. Maybe one day we will go back and see a bit more.
Hubby says he never wants to fly that far again....but I will. 

 I wish I had a camera on me when William saw us come out through customs on our arrival at home....we heard him before we saw him. It was a big "Jenna" "Poppy"  I looked up and he was standing there shaking with excitement from head to toe with a huge grin on his face. I just knelt down and held out my arms and he flew into them. From then on he never stopped talking....bless his little heart.
And our Miss Summer.....just look at her, how she has grown.
Thankfully she remembered us....we got lots of lovely little grins from her even though she is sick with the flu. 

What a holiday, one I will NEVER EVER forget.
But geeeeeee its nice to be home.

This is the last post for 5 weeks....tomorrow evening we leave for our holiday of a lifetime.
Perth to New York via Dubai and Milan, we overnight only in New York.  New York to Dayton in Ohio where we stay 5 days. Dayton to Los Angeles where we stay 2 days. Los Angeles to Anchorage in Alaska where we do a 3 day land tour around Denali National Park before boarding a cruise ship and sailing for 7 nights down the past glaciers and through the inside passage to Vancouver where we will spend 6 days. Then we fly to London for 10 days before heading home. 

So its goodbye from me till our return.

Alls well...

Kylee had some professional pics done of our little "Snugglebug" taken. What a beautiful job she cute is this little girl.  She is her mummy all over at that age...certainly takes me back.
An absolutely gorgeous day today, the weather was perfect. Shawn had his girls, I had William so after lunch we took off down the beach, a 10 minute drive away to enjoy it while we can....rain and wind forecasted for tomorrow.
William had an absolute ball...he just ran and ran the whole 3 hours we were there. He should sleep well tonight thats for sure. He talked too...heck this kid can talk, its constant yak yak yak...drives ya batty after awhile. 

Now isn't time flying...little Miss is now just a few days off 6 weeks. She smiles, she gurgles and talks to you now, just an absolute delight. 
William is as besotted as ever...hope that bond stays.

Weigh in was Saturday, weight was down reached a number I haven't been at in a long long time. Hope I can keep this up, would be nice to see a bit more gone before we board the plane for our trip of a lifetime in 2 weeks time.

Its been crazy...

Its been crazy here of late. 
Ted's 70th birthday is this weekend so been doing a lot of shopping and prep for that.
Been babysitting Master William and Miss Summer a little too. Kylee has had a few appointments, house has been sprayed for nasties and the list goes on. Also had Shawn's girls some holidays and their foster mum works so they have had extra Daddy time.  William loves spending time with them too....I don't mind either as they wear him out and he has a arvo nap!!
Diet....well thats been up and down. Had 2 weeks of gains, anniversaries of loved ones passed really got to me.   But back to it and I recorded a good loss last week, hoping for another this weigh in. 

Will leave you with a few pics of the little ones...
4 weeks already, time has flown. She is a good baby, sleeps well most nights...Kylee usually gets a good 4 hours, sometimes 5. 

William is still besotted with his little "Sum Sum" as he calls her. Talks to her telling her how gorgeous she is,  always touching her and loves to help Mummy with her. 

This was taken today. Absolutely gorgeous day. Little Miss was not interested in a sleep after her bottle so I stripped her off and let her kick her little legs and play in the warmth for 3o minutes. She loved it.

Little Miss Summer is now heading towards 3 weeks old and coming along fine. She is feeding well and gaining weight as she should. Has a small hernia in her belly button that we will hope will go nurse is keeping an eye on that.
William is absolutely besotted with his cute little "SumSum" as he calls her.

Our new arrival...

Everyone....our little granddaughter is here....she arrived at 4.12am on the 27th March. 
Pleased to show you our Summer Rose. William is besotted with his little "SumSum" the name he affectionately calls her.  She is a real little doll.
Kylee got her natural birth that she was wishing for, no intervention at all, it was a quick and intense labour. Kylee had asked me to be with her during her labour, so I was there to encourage her and witness bub come into the world. I am truly blessed.

Just quickly..

Kylee has somehow gone past her due date... she now overdue.
Didn't expect that...we all expected her to go early!
Last few days she has had off and on cramps...then they surely bubba has to come soon...

Weigh in day yesterday, 800grams gone (that was for 2 weeks)
