7 days in to August...
and I haven't blogged...I haven't told you about our new addition...
HENRY EDWIN GARDNER was born on 15 July @ 8:18am by CS weighing 9lbs 5oz, 52 cm long and 38cm head circumference.
My eyes well up just writing this...I am totally in love with him...I didn't realise how excited I would be to have a boy. Don't get my wrong, I would have been just as excited to have a 3rd girl...I was quite excited to be able to say I have 3 girls...thought it sounded cool LOL.
But now that he is here I am just so overwhelmed whenever I look at him and it's been 3 weeks since he arrived.
He put me through hell for a while...the last week was very hard, he was posterior, spine to spine...labor started, stopped, started again and stopped again, there was bleeding and horrendous pain...why pain? well unbeknown to us he decided to turn around and was feet down when my OB opended me up! So you can imagine how uncomfortable I was having a 9 pound baby turning around inside me.
So life with 3 kids??? is amazing! I love it! I love that the kids outnumber the adults. As Nathan said the other day if he knew how great it was having 3 he would have decided to have 3 LOL! Yes Henry was a surprise. A pleasant surprise....NOW!
So what's my title of today's post all about? Well I have decided that I want to change my blog...I want it to not just be for my scrapping...I want to blog daily, put down my thoughts, my experiences and what is going on in our family. I have been following a few blogs lately such as Picklebums and the Organised Housewife and The Small Notebook and I am inspired by their openess as well as their ability to organise AND let go of certain stuff.
So in an effort to let go of stuff I am going to blog every day and put my ideas down here...that probably doesn't make sense to you LOL.
Ok well we are all still in pjs, Nathan is out riding...I need to have a shower, clean another pooey nappy and somehow get the girls to pick up all the duplo that is strewn all over the floor. Duplo is the toy of the week atm...great for fine motor skills...but it really hurts when you step on it without any shoes!
