Last Saturday, 1st Sept, was Mr Mel's birthday (happy birthday hubby!) and it was 4 months since our little bubba entered the world.
Time certainly does fly! The first month or so was hard, dealing with an unexpected c-section, a bub with silent reflux, and no family living near us. Luckily my Mum was able to fly up from Victoria for a week and give me a break, as I was nearing kookoo area! I can so understand why sleep deprivation was used as a torture technique in the wars!!!
But even though that time was hard, for the past 2 months or so, every day has been amazing, our little girl has been sleeping through, from around 7.30pm till 4.30/5am most nights, and every single time I turn on my bedside light when she's waking, she greets me with the most glorious smile I've ever seen, it honestly makes my heart swell and tears come to my eyes. I'm so loving the simple things of being a mum, they more than make up for the hard stuff!

Till next time,
