Well I said it would be a while, and it sure has – though for me the past couple of months have just flown by!
We had a beautiful baby girl at the end of May, who will be known as Miss K. She is wonderful, gorgeous and the spitting image of her big sister, Miss A. The first month was incredibly trying as we realised she was suffering from the mysterious colic, but we cracked out the infacol, Dr Brown bottles, soothers and burping techniques and found it was manageable and once we got her into a routine (no mean feat when fitting around Miss A as well) life has definitely improved. No the colic has been replaced with a mild form of reflux, which, on balance, is a
million billion trillion times better than colic – to hear that painful cry for hours on end was super hard to bear. Hubby & I do still resemble zombies due to the lack of sleep – I would pay good money for 12 hours of uninterrupted sleep!
As you know we are moving to NZ in about a month’s time and preparing for the move has become a never ending To Do List. It has been interesting trying to tackle all of this with a screaming baby and I cant say I would do it again in a hurry, but as the days draw nearer to our leaving date, I am starting to see a light at the end of the tunnel. After all of this moving malarky though, we are definitely well deserved of a long holiday, which is how we plan to start our adventure in NZ!
We have started saying our goodbyes to friends and family which we knew would be the hardest part of all of this, but everyone is being really supportive of our decision to move and they also know that they can come and visit us anytime – what a great destination for a holiday 🙂
Shall be posting again soon but for now – take care y’all
