Congratulations Quinn!

My little Mr Quinn has successfully completed and passed with flying colours his first year of school.


When our little students 'graduate' a school year we put on a mini celebration for them.  We do up a certificate to honour their achievement and give them a big round of applause.  We buy them a pressie to reward them for all their hard work.  We also have a yummy treat and the student who we are celebrating gets to have a 'stay up late' treat.

Here are my students excited about some raspberry cheese cake

Quinn opens his reward

and is very pleased!  :O)  
(displaying his very fake camera smile!! LOL)

Once the other two boys are in bed, we played each of Quinn's new games with him, which he really enjoyed.  It was a fun evening had by all.

Pregnancy - 12 weeks

Apologies for the lack of posts - I had intentions of an Easter post (took pics) and have a cookery Monday waiting to post but I've been extremely exhausted and some things had to give.. blog one of them.

So, we have made it to 12 weeks!  :O) 

We are all so thrilled that we have now heard baby's heartbeat several times.  Everything appears to be going really well and the children can't wait for my tummy to get huge!  :O)

I booked in a scan for next week on Friday the 27th.  It's a late evening appt. at 8:25
We're very excited - can't wait for those first pictures.

Pregnancy - 10 weeks - The Best News

10 weeks today!

Click play to listen to something very, very special!!

Thanks for walking with us through this pregnancy!  The last week has been a little bit emotional for me as I went through the time gestationally when Eman would have passed away.  I am filled with so much hope and am overflowing with joy to have heard my little baby's heartbeat (twice)!  The first listen in was before the time gestationally that Eman passed away and the 2nd time was today and still that wonderful strong heartbeat there!  Today we official enter the fetal stage of the pregnancy and leave the embryonic stage behind.

Keep growing little one!

Cravings this week - fresh home-made fruit scones!!
Felt this week - insanely tired, but nausea mild  :O)
Belly growth - 2 inches  (already!)  lol
