Being happy doesnt mean that everything is perfect.

It means that you have decided to look beyond the imperfections...

Slack Slack Slack... But ALOT has been going on

How slack am I? No blog posts for 3 weeks... Its not that I haven't wanted too... I've had an excuse..!! I've been tired.. I've even been napping in the afternoon when Ellie sleeps...

My tiredness will all be worth it though... as of June 23, 2012 we will have another addition to our family... That's right, Little Ellie is going to be a big sister.. We are very very excited... Nervous slightly, but still very excited...

Here is the little one at 12 weeks

I have to admit, I felt extremely sick walking back into the same ultrasound place... As my last memories of this place was weekly scans of Ellie from 2o weeks to 38 weeks to monitor her growth. The feelings I remember associated with this place was fear, upset, worries and concerns... But the amazing sonographer put me right at ease... I think she saw the fear and almost tears in my eyes before we did the ultrasound...

So far everything looks as it should, however we will do more testing and scans at 16 weeks and 20 weeks. The little thing was extremely active, so that was great to see.

We walked out with allot of photos, and a much more relaxed Mummy (+ Daddy)

Ellies Eye
As some of you may know from FB, last week we lost Ellies eye at quite a large shopping centre... I do know what part I lost it at, however it is so little that it was impossible to find... It was inevitable.. Ellie just has to rub her eye and POP it can come out... The funniest part was when I rang the shopping centre, to enquire for lost property. The conversation went like this.

Me - "I would like to enquire about some lost property that I lost last friday"
Operator - "What exactly did you loose"
Me - My daughters eye...!!!


Operator - "You have made my day interesting, I have never been asked to see if an eye has been handed in"

So.... So far we have not found the eye, and no one has handed it in, maybe some child is rapt that he found a "Cool" new marble..!!!

This afternoon we are off to Ellies Occularist, so we can start the process to make her new eye. We have the mould from her last one, so I assume its just the painting that needs to be done.

As of now, we have actually insured Ellies eye for accidental loss or damage in and outside of the home... so there are now alot of relieved people, that look after Ellie on a regular basis, as they were always scared Ellie would loose her eye on their watch.


  1. We are so excited to hear that Ellie is going to be a big sister!!! I know she will instantly love and adore her little sibling, just as she or he will love her. So happy for your family!!

  2. How exciting to hear the news about another Young joining the fam!

    Hope it does't take too long to have Ellie's new eye made x

  3. Congrats!! What a wonderful picture of the little one. I am so happy for your family!

    I love the new picture of Ellie on the top of the blog. She is so beautiful.

    Best of luck with the eye. I would loved to have been able to see the operator when you told her what you were looking for.

    Lots of love!
