Wow ... where does the time go ... its taken me 4 months just to get round to typing this blog. Its amazing how much of your time one small pink squealy girl can take. Making it out of pj's by midday and getting out of the house by 2 p.m. seems quite an accomplishment these days ... wait, erm, maybe that's not so different from my hangover Sunday mornings from weekends in a past life. Getting up at 6:30 a.m. every day though, for those of you that know me well, you'll realize what an accomplishment that is for me ... especially caffeine-free. And lil' Keira Collin's isn't quite so little anymore. Our gorgeous little chubster is growing at an alarming rate ... on the plus side, I developing some hefty bicep and shoulder muscles. All the things that used to be so easy like popping to the supermarket and or nipping into the bank are not quite so easy anymore. I used to think that drive-through atm's, bottle shops and even drive through Starbucks were for fat lazy people, now I realise they are a lifesaver for little mum's who get to stay in the comfort of air-con in 90 degree heat and not have to cart little snoozing or screaming babies in and out of the car seats to pushchairs to supermarket trolleys constantly.
So, being a mum? Well, it's definitely a life changing experience Going from 20 plus years of doing whatever the hell I liked to having to devote 99% of my time to this beautiful little girl took a little adjusting ... but she's worth every second of it ... she's developing quite a personality and while those vocal cords create some ear screeching squeals, they also create some heart melting moments like her new word ... 'mama'.
Its so amazing to watch this little part of you grow and develop and we are such proud parents ... I wouldn't change this lifestyle for the world.

Well... for those of us who have children we know the sacrifices we make for the sake of offspring , but for those who only simply "admire" the never ending "joy" of parentho0od....Please cherish the free time and simplicities of life for all of us.

Here are the first of many pictures we are planning on posting. We thought that rather than trying to send pictures to everyone that we would just publish a large number of the ones we have taken and everyone could just pick the ones that they want.
We will be leaving our on our "around the world" journey home next week and we will post many pictures from Australia as well.

I would like to thank these two great grandparents for everything they have done to make this much easier on the two of us....whether it be much needed advice or the willingness to babysit first thing in the morning so we can catch up on some much needed sleep, they have been there.
