Introducing Hannah Grace Anne Cheetham. My first neice, and the first grandaughter on the Toland side. (they have my boys, and now Hannah) Awww, does she just make you want another one! Ethan has been a little off colour lately. Probably just the after effects of the imunisations, but I thought it would be better if he didn't come to the hospital. Brett went during the day, then Liam and I went down at night. Liam was just busting to have a cuddle - at one stage he whispered to me that he wants a baby... but I'm happy to report, he really just wanted to cuddle this baby!
He is so gentle. He kept telling her he loved her "I wuvs you Hannah!" It was lovely to see Sal and Dave. Sal looks AMAZING. Poor thing puffed up like a puffer fish with fluid. And considering she had a c-section 12 hours before, was doing so well. She's waited 'forever' to be a mummy, and now her dreams have finally come true.
I did manage to get a layout scrapped this week. One whole layout! How's the cute little pose... I had to tell him "pose for mummy like all the other kids do" LOL It's been such a busy week I can hardly believe it's Friday.
I have found a supplier for my lights etc in Melbourne, which is great so just getting up the nerve to spend that much money, and they should be on their way. It's a catch 22 though, don't want to spend the $, need the lights to make more $.
Bought myself a slow cooker this morning. My mothers day pressie. Ethan needs to eat dinner by 5.00pm at the latest, Liam's not hungry until at least 6.00, Brett's not home from work until around 7.00 and I eat when ever I get a spare second. So I decided last week that I needed a slow cooker. I used it tonight and it was heaven. Put dinner on while Liam was at preschool this morning, did some house work and entertained Ethan. Went to preschool for a special mothers day morning (more on that later), took Liam, Aidan and Ethan to mothers group, came home, switched on the rice cooker and dinner was ready.
Mothers day morning. We had to arrive at preschool half an hour early. All the kids were lined up infront of the sandpit. They sang us three songs, then moved aside, unveiling the surprise in the sandpit. They had all written WE LOVE MUM in the sandpit with pinecones and jar lids. Then used all the sand toys to make a big love heart around it all. I have a pic of it... so cute! Then we went inside and were served truffles by the kids and presented with our very own mini scrapbooks (ahhhhhhhhhh! Excited happy dance from me!!) I have to share pics of this later. It's so stinkin' cute! The last page said this: "My mum's name is Katie. I don't call her that. She calls me Liam. My mum takes photos and makes books. I love it when my mum lets me help her. I like reading books. My mum likes me reading books."
Had to laugh at my girlfriends. Her son said "my mum is old, she's 21 or 27" He'd have a fit if he actually knew she was 34 LOL
MISS C... IS IT YOUR BIRTHDAY TODAY?!! Happy birthday to you :)
