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)

Slowly I go....

Weigh in day today...a 200g gain on ww scales, 300g loss on mine, guess the day will come when they both will be the same. No matter if they don't...because I won't be forever going to ww meetings. Will see how the finances go after I come back from holidays, I may change to online for awhile till $'s mount up again.  
Very disappointed that I showed a gain on ww's. It's my first gain...and I am studying as to where I could have gone wrong ( I tracked every day). I actually thought I would have had a big loss as I was only over points for 1 day...the rest were spot on or under. Plenty of walks, heaps of active minutes. 
So my aim this week is to vary my diet a bit. Have different breakfasts and try out a few new recipes.  Should have a loss...have a colonoscopy on Tuesday...that means no grains or red meat tomorrow, fast on Monday ready for Tuesday.   Dear Daughter better not go into labour while I in hospital...well if she does at least I will be close, she going into the private hospital next door. 
Next Saturday weight watcher weigh in might not happen...I have an early shift that day and I don't know if I will make it to hop on scales. Will see what happens.

Right, daughter is here. There is a big fire in the next suburb....a lot of houses are without power including Kylee's. We are fine where we are, anyways we have solar power and work off the grid mostly. 

Kylee is over 38 weeks now....noticing baby is dropping. Come on baby, we are impatiently waiting.
Next Dr visit Monday unless bubba arrives before.

Baby Q

Last night we had a Baby Q to wish Kylee and Garry plus William all the very best for the coming of their little girl and Williams little sister.   It was a lovely night. They are on the countdown down, Kylee is 36+ weeks now.  No sign of her "dropping" yet, but I think she will soon, as I think she will go go early.
So....pen and paper was out yesterday, we have all written down our guess dates and weights and now wait impatiently for the arrival of our little girl.  She has a name...that will be revealed when she is born. Its S----- R---    Any guesses?? 

Weigh in was Saturday...a sts   A disappointment as I thought I had done real well.  
This coming week.....mmmmmm after last night and the over indulging I will have to work hard to redeem myself......

Birthday week

Another week down but her above ^^^^^^^ is counting them too, 5 weeks to go and it can't go fast enough. She is loving the pregnancy, loves feeling baby grow, kick, and move around but is getting so tired. Sleep pattern is erratic but she now has the advantage of napping in the afternoon now she is on maternity leave and William is at Kindy or daycare. 
Bubby is head down, lets hope she stays there, Kylee desperately wants a vaginal birth this time around. William was stuck breech under Kylee's ribs so was a caesar. Fingers crossed it happens for her. Her gyno says it being a former twin pregnancy so it could go anyway...but he is letting her try to go naturally. 
Having a Baby Q on the weekend as a baby shower for both of them....just a few friends over, a lot have other commitments as we left it a little late to decide on a date.

Had a busy week last week. Visitors from the USA were here and we took them on a quick tiki tour down the South West...taking in the chocolate factory, wine and liqueur tasting and some beautiful coastal scenery.
Result at weigh in showed was a 100g gone....but I was happy about that considering my week.
Hoping for a better week this week although it is my birthday week.

Back to work...

Just a quick post. Its 6.30am Sunday morning, and I have my first shift back at work today after my op. Also have some American radio friends that are touring Australia and New Zealand coming this afternoon. Hubby has "met" both of them on ham radio and has been chatting to them for a few years now. Friends who live up the road (Neville is also a ham radio operator and chats to them too and his wife ) are going up to Perth to pick them up and bringing them down here the inland way and showing them points of interest as they travel. They will be dropped off here in the late afternoon as tonight we'll have a bbq with them and Neville and his wife Margaret, and tomorrow we'll take them touring a bit further down south before taking them back to Perth via the coastal highway (so they will get to see more) as Tuesday they fly to Hobart with their tour group. Looking forward to meeting them and doing the tiki tour with them. 

Weigh in was Saturday....yay to another 800g gone. Loving the new weigh watchers plan...its just so easy, too easy to be true...but I am stoked its working!!

Right...I gotta go move...a few more things to organise. Have to pack myself a lunch so I don't veer too much off plan today and I have some chores to get done before I leave. 
As the pic above ^^^^ shows I want to keep going and stick to the plan as much as I can. Holiday of a lifetime looms and I so want to travel in comfort. 

Focus Jen, focus...
