Ophelia's 2nd month

I can't believe I already have a 2 month old baby, well actually I have a 10 week old baby so nearing 3 months. The time is going way too fast for my liking.


The first month was way too much of a blur but I think that was partially because my mother in law died just days after she was born.

She had a good first Christmas and the lucky thing then got to have her first holiday as we flew to Australia to stay with my mum and sisters on boxing day. She was an angel on the flight and was no trouble at all.  I can't believe at 5 weeks old she had a stamp in her passport. I think we've set her up for a travelling lifestyle.

We've also decided to stay in Australia until mid March. My poor hubby has had to go back and we are away from him for 7 weeks. He's coming back though for another 2 week holiday with us at the begging of next month.


Since being here Ophelia has been to the beach, had her first swim in my mum's  swimming pool, met lots of animals such as kangaroos and koalas and seen some gorgeous Xmas lights.

We also had to get her first lot of injections here. What a palava that was. They have them at 6 weeks here so that's when she had them. She also had more than she would have at home.

I have no idea how much she weighs as we're not seeing a health visitor but she seems fine to me. She is honestly such a well behaved baby. She is happy and content all the time and constantly smiling. I am so lucky. Perhaps she'll turn into a demon later on!! I hope not. Since being her she sleeps very well at night. If I feed her about 11pm, the majority of the time she'll stay asleep until about 6am.

She loves me singing to her. Her favourite song to here is beautiful dreamer.

She idolises her sister. She's always looking for her attention and tries to talk to her whenever she's around.

I'm so glad I'm making the most of this maternity leave by being in Australia. She is loving having quality time with me, her nanny and her aunties.
