Dear Georgie,

This week you are 12 weeks old and you have done two very funny things.

On Monday Daddy was eating a lemon, and decided to give you a little taste, so he put a little drop on his finger and gave you his finger to suck. Oh how I wish I'd had a camera! You were so funny! There was a two second delay and then you pulled the funniest face ever! Mummy and Daddy were in hysterics. You grimaced and smacked your lips and looked so surprised! We may be mean parents, but, oh, it was so funny!

Then on Wednesday night I was giving you a bath. I've been hopping in the bath with you and we've had lots of fun together, we sing and you splash and kick and play. You LOVE being on your tummy in the bath for some reason, which means you get the occasional mouthful of water, but you're tough! Anyway, on Wednesday you'd been a bit grumpy and then you got a lot happier in the bath, and right towards the end you did an enormous poo in the bath all over Mummy and yourself.... I was not very pleased!

Anyway I should go now, I'm not sleeping very well as I'm a little worried because your Dad has had some interesting blood tests lately and the Doctors did an ultrasound and saw that his spleen was a bit large, so they have decided to do a bone marrow biopsy on him next week. Poor Daddy! It's going to hurt a lot, I know, because I had to have one when I was 17. But at least Dad is going to go under general anesthetic... So it's another trip to the city next week! I'm a bit scared but your Dad seems healthy so we are hoping for the best and trusting God. He loves this family more than I do, and we love him- so all will be well, even if it's not always in the way we think.

I love you, you are wonderful.

Happy Fathers Day Shane!

Tomorrow it is Fathers Day, so I've been up a little late getting things nice for tomorrow. The house is nice and I ironed Shane's clothes so they're all ready for church in the morning. The poor boy worked today from 4am until 6pm, and then drove back from the town he was working at which was a 2 hour drive. Plus it was raining and storming- so not a good drive. I was praying heaps for him to get home safe, I really don't know what I would do if something bad ever happened to him. As soon as Shane walked through the door he picked up Georgie (who was rather grizzly) and cuddled her for about half an hour.

Georgie, your Dad really couldn't love you more.

I bought Shane a lovely children's book called "My Daddy thinks he's funny" I thought it was so cute and a great present. I had no idea what to get him, but my sister Cathy came up with the idea- she's brilliant. I never know what to get people, and I would love to have the gift of being able to get people really wonderful presents. I am determined to start Christmas shopping soon, so that I can get on top of it early and buy people things that they actually want and like, and not just bestow useless junk upon them like I normally do.

Just so you don't think that everything in my life is all sunshine and roses, I'll let you know that I've actually had a horrible week. I've been really tired, my hormones have been all over the place, I just want to do something exciting and different, and I've been taking it out on poor Shane. Plus, on Tuesday I got the Implanon birth control rod inserted in my arm, and for the next few days I think my milk must have changed a bit, because Georgie really wasn't fussed on it. But I'll see how things go.

Also I'm getting really sick of having to eat plain boring bland food. It's been 9 weeks now, and I really want something spicy or even just an orange- but poor Georgie just reacts so badly with alot of things I have to keep my diet really simple. Georgie, I love you and you are worth it, but sometimes I would love to give you a bottle for a day, just so I could go have yummy chinese or something! But I really do believe that breastfeeding is better for you, even if it does hurt and can be difficult, it still is much easier than having to worry about sterilizing bottles!

Anyway, enough rambling, I really should go to bed, Goodnight.
