Its a new year

and so much has happened already...well to be honest lol not a lot can happen when all you do is stare at our cute little boy everyday...

see why nothing gets done around here with this gorgeous little man... he is now 2 months old and so much is changing everyday... big big smiles and little talks we get from him now just so cute...

look at how big he is getting now... getting those baby cute rolls on his arms and legs... he is now sleeping in his big cot after figuring it out that if he squirmed down the bottom of the bassinet he could kick at it and wake himself up... so far so good in the cot...
the looks so tiny in this big cot but I'm sure he will be growing bigger very soon...


So other then baby news not a lot has been happening.. this year i have decided my one word for the year is to "FINISH"... finish off some or all of those projects that i started...
and i have actually done pretty well so far here is Jaxon's baby blanket that i started when i was pregnant and finally its finished ready for him to use... very happy with how this turned out...
another project that I'm working on to get finished is this blooming flower cushion... i saw this over on the Attic24 blog and loved the pattern... here is my version so far... just need to finish off the back part and sew it together and its finished...
another project i did manage to get finished just in the nick of time was this christmas cross stitch sampler from The Frosted Pumpkin Stitchery. This was made for my parents for christmas for their new house they have just moved into...



ok here is a list of projects that i need to get finished

* Jaxon's baby album
* project life album 2015
* continue with the cross stitch yearly sampler Story time 
* continue with the monthly crochet block (blue, grey and white) from Moogly Blog
* start blanket for my bed

ok 2015 is going to be a busy year i think LOL... lets see how i go (and hopefully more blogging in that list as well...)

till next time

Seriously

time needs to slow down... Jaxon is now 1 month old and i really don't know where that time went to... he is becoming very aware of all around him now and he follows things around when i move them...growing up so big and i still love getting in all the cuddles i can now until he gets too big for mummy time cuddles LOL

hoping he will always love mummy cuddles...
it was my birthday last thursday...another year older but thats ok as i have the best family to grow old with now...i got very spoilt by hubby and my gorgeous kids and of course my wonderful man made me my favourite pavlova for my birthday cake it was yummy...

on saturday we went off to kaitlyn's physie christmas party that was held at the pools... was very proud of my girl getting a trophy and new sash to carry all her medals on... it was a warm day so it was lucky we spent it all at the pools and even Jaxon got to have his first swim in the big pool
ok off to be creative (or try to be LOL)

2 1/2 weeks old

We are all slowly settling into new baby in the house routine... its been great having hubby home for the last 2 weeks while we all got settled in...he is back to work tomorrow so its time for me to get into our own routine and see how we go...

Jaxon is doing so well now and has put on quite a bit of weight which is great after all the weight he lost when he was born...he is now 3.6 kgs and getting those chubby cheeks back again... such a good sleeper which we are very blessed with, sleeping at least 4-5 hour stints each night then feed and back to sleep...couldn't ask for a better little man....

isn't he just divine lol (of course I'm biased i can be I'm his mum lol)

so since we have been home I've been quite crafty doing a secret project for a christmas present so i can't share just yet... hoping to get a start of jaxon's album soon i have it all set out just need to get motivated to start on it... but with the weather so hot lately its too hot to sit out in my craft room...hopefully this week i might be able to ...

ok sharing a few more photos of our little man...just cause i can...
check out our little elephant

he loves being wrapped but he is a little houdini and gets his hands out lol

not a very good pic but check out the hands and how he looks so at peace in his rocker...

ok thats it for now ill be back with my cuteness for sure lol

Welcome to our little family Jaxon

Well I now can finally share my exciting news... 

On Wednesday 5th November 2014 we welcomed our gorgeous bundle of joy Jaxon Gregory George Milne into our family....

He was born via c section at 8:43am weighing 8 pounds 6 ounces (3800 kg) and measuring 48cm in length...

Bit of a hard start for our little man with him being put into special care for 12 hours after birth due to swallowing too much fluid... he was kept in a humidicrib to try and dry out the fluid....so it was a bit hard not being able to hold him for that time....

Finally he came out of special care only to be put back in 3 days later due to not feeding properly and losing too much weight and slight jaundice... they never found out why (although he was given antibiotics which really helped) but finally 1 week after he was born he was allowed to come home and we were all very happy that our boy was finally on the road to a healthy life...
Everyone is so excited to have a new one in our family but most of all daddy who is a first timer... he is very smitten with his son and won't stop staring at him lol... his big sister is also very much in love with him and being such a big help which is great to see (all she wanted was a brother LOL)
so our little family is now complete and i couldn't be happier... now to get back into some sort of normality with a new bub... and hopefully we will get into a routine soon so i can get into some crafty stuff like starting on his baby album...

off to check on my little man (ok must stop staring at him LOL babies are such time wasters LOL)

Work in Progress projects...

Its starting to get warm here and I'm loving it... October already and the year is nearly over....still got lots to look forward to which i will be able to share in the next few weeks....

But with the warm weather its been fun getting out and enjoying the time in the sun... we have been doing lots of gardening around the house with our vege garden now planted and growing nicely... just have to do a bit more with the front garden then it will be nice again...its good that it is now daylight savings so much more light in our days to get the things done that we need to get done.... Kaitlyn was even a loving daughter and washed my car....



crafty wise not a lot happening... trying to get a few crochet projects completed that have been sitting here for a while now.... so this weekend I'm planning on trying to finish off one of those WIP's (bathurst car racing is on my hubbies fav weekend, so its good to sit and watch that and crochet at the same time)....
