Well, it’s certainly different being a mother of two than of one. But I guess that is no surprise to anyone…
Me and our new little miracle, babygirl Elsa, came home on Saturday afternoon, and we have been trying to settle in at home since. She is fantastic, eating and sleeping is all that she does at the moment, but it’s still a lot to take in for me. I feel quite relaxed though, taking one hour at a time. Luckily, my DH has not started work yet, so he can help with Tova and everything else. And then there is only 10 days ’til my mum and sister comes for a visit. YAY!!
We aslo found out today that our DREAM HOME that we have been hoping to buy is ours!!!! So we will be moving in a few weeks time. Not that we are busy with other stuff or anything… 🙂 It’s a great year 2009, so far!
Anyway, here’s a pic of our lovely Elsa:
Scrapbooking? Have I done any? Actually, yes… Trying to anyway. The first LO i have to show is actually my first LO of the year, I finished it the night before I went in to hospital. It’s about how Tova loves to be pushed outside the house in a wheel barrow… 🙂 This LO will most probably be available as a class at Scrapbooker’s Delight later this year.
And then I’ve been trying to get into it since I got back. Have mostly been shuffling papers around really… I have finished on LO though. One of my best friends here in NZ inspired me… She has been visiting me and Elsa at the hospital EVERY day, and have just been so supportive and helpful. She has always been an amazing friend, and fantastic with Tova, an extra aunt really. Since I have no family here, she’s just invaluable (is that a word??). A photo of her and Tova has been on top of my pile of photos to scrap for a long time, and the events this last few days gave me the inspiration to do something about it. It’s not a fantastic page, but that’s not always what it’s about – right? This page is DEFINITELY about something else but perfection…
On this LO I have used a few of my favourite things at the moment… Dotted CS from Bazill, MM mini alpha’s, Fiskar’s threading water punch, kindy glitz, Eva creative bling swirl, liquid pearls and charms. Most of these products can be found in the Scrappin’ Patch shop!
Oh. One more thing before I go! I made you all guess the sex of our new baby, and I had five guesses for a girl:

I let Random.org do the job, and the winner is…
Please send me your address Trace and I will get some goodies out for you!
OK. It’s taken me HOURS to write this post. A sign of the future I imagine… See you all soon again, hope you’re having a good start to the year – I certainly have!!
