what we’ve been up to

Well tomorrow we leave the hospital and I’m definitely looking forward to being home and getting on with  life as a bigger family. Retro daddy has done an A-M-A-Z-I-N-G job keeping things running at home and bringing everyone in to see us each day. We’ve been enjoying warm baths and opening our eyes…….

opening our eyes

and being idolised by big sister Keira who is totally smitten and has wanted to spend every night in the hospital with us
keira keeps a close eye on things

and of course we’re feeding…..oh boy the feeding. I forgot how much time you spend parked on your behind feeding! But I’m so happy miss elodie is so good at it. Even if I only get one hours sleep because all she wants to do is feed and cuddle…..it sure beats feeding two babies at once who don’t want to feed.

those lips

And I just love staring……….getting to know all of her little features like the way her little bottom lip curls in and looks oh so adorable. And so tomorrow real life starts…………..and we can get out of the hospital gown and into some cute clothes.


  1. She is so gorgeous Corrie.
    Enjoy every minute with that little newborn baby. Oh how I miss those snuggles and noises. Enjoy being home with the rest of the crew. Number 4 for us was a breeze…they just slot right in and just follow with what everyone is doing…they dont really have much of a say! 😀
    Much love

  18. She’s so big Corrie, what a beautiful face, i think she’s a Retro Daddy look alike for sure.
    I loved bringing home number 4, it was just so right & yes, lots of big sisters, he was very comfortable with all the movement, like he’d be listenign to it for the past 9 months, i think he knew he was at the right house!! He was so easy, go with the flow. Yippee, 4 under 5 rocks!! Well, now i’m staring down the teenage years, 4 between 13 & 17is going to be nuts!!
    Can’t wait to cuddle her, love Posie

  19. She is such a cutie! And I know what you mean about the feeding – I had totally forgotten just how long it takes to feed a newborn! But it is such a good excuse to cuddle and stare at them.

    Hope you have a lovely first day settling in at home.

  20. She is too cute for words!

  21. Just divine, and what a great crop of hair – good luck tomorrow and hope all continues to go well. I’d love to be home cuddling a baby.

    you know things are going well at home if the kids turn up to the hospital dressed in decent clothes with their hair done 😉
