Special Little Feet

Emily has very special little feet, One her right foot she has excess skin between her 2nd last toe and her baby toe, When she was born her left foot was slightly deformed and her fore foot is slightly curved in. On Friday my little princess has to wear a cast for 4 weeks. I am glad when a friend of mine did the pictures of the kids she got one of Emily's special feet.

Emily had had physio to try and correct the issue but they are unable to do much more and think they need to cast it. With the physio I have to do stretches every 2 hours and she sometimes loves it and sometimes hates it. Although I have become a little attached to her tiny little feet.
With Emily wearing a cast, We are only annoyed to bath her once a week and when we do bath her it is to wash the cast off as she will get a new one every week for 4 weeks. Lets hope and pray she isn't to unsettled for the next 4 weeks.

Sleepy Baby

Sleepy Little Princess wont go to sleep.... Poor little princess is so over tired.


I think I have the worlds best husband at times he makes the most yummiest foods and since I have been eating healthier and exercising he is the best support. He eats whatever I eat to make it easier and he comes up with the most brilliant idea's for my sweet tooth. This is Weis Mango Sorbet with pineapple. He even weighs it all for me to make sure I am having the correct calories. This dessert came to 105 calories and really hit the sweet craving.

The other thing Kurt does so well is he walks with me every night so for one I have the company and two to push me as far as I can go. Thank you to my darling husband, I am truly grateful for you.

Our sick computer

Today we had to take our puter (as Kurt calls it) to the repair shop (Apple Store) as it has been having a few little problems. Like not waking up from being on stand by and the screen not turning but the power is still there. We have had our beautiful mac for just under 3 years in face we are 70 days before our apple care plan finishes up (If you buy a mac please get Apple Care because you never know when your computer may just decide to play up). So we took our computer wrapped in a blanket to the store. Our computer is used a lot a part of our every day life to play on facebook to blog and for Kurt's uni stuff. So it has very much become a member of the family. As we walked into the apple store we felt very sad. I made the comment to Kurt its like taking a pet to the vet, Where he did laugh at me and call me an idiot. While in the Apple store we learnt two things. Don't take Spencer in there as he will not want to leave and not to buy a new computer from there as when someone buys a mac they all cheer and clap on your way out. Also another thing is not to go in there without money because it just makes you sad. SO hopefully we will get our computer back in the next few days. Maybe a whole new one if we are lucky. (Thank goodness for the time machine hard drive thing that has over 2500 pictures on it and 3000 songs). We can't simply live without a computer (Well I can't) so we have my dads mini lappy to borrow. So THANKS DAD.

Mini Me

I get told daily that Matilda is just like me as a little girl, Both in looks and temperament. A lot of people will say poor child with the temperament. Because I will admit to you now I was a feral child. I know a lot of the times my parents loved me but liked me is another question... But as I remind a lot of people from my childhood that tell me I was a feral child... I GREW UP, I am no longer a 10 year old that is trying every trick under the sun. I am married and I have 3 kids of my own, At lease with Tilda she also has a lot of qualities of her father's side of the family.

Like she LOVES her sleep.... For me I hated my sleep. She loves to sort things which is apparently off his side. Her favourite thing to do at the moment is to collect random things off the floor and put them in a bag and carry around the bag for hours taking things out putting new things in. I love watching her play she has side a huge imagination.

Tonight she is having trouble sleeping due to having her ears pierced today and watching her play and walk around singing just makes my heart melt the love I have for my gorgeous little princess.

Here are some pictures of our favourite game, She calls it cheese.

Playing PhotoBooth on the mac.

First Week of Weight Lost...

Well I was very proud of myself its the longest I have stuck to eating healthy and exercise and it has payed off. I am quite happy with my result thus far a loss of 3.1kgs and feeling great I am starting to fit into a size 12. Which makes me want to keep going. I have had a bad start to my week with coming back from Melbourne late on Saturday night. Which I might add I did so well while I was in Melbourne. I didn't really blow my calories but than coming back down from a high on Sunday and Monday, I was on the hunt for anything sugary possible. Today we are back on track. I have stuck to my calories but I am finding I am still quite hungry, I think it might be boredom. I went for a light walk this morning tonight I am planning on doing a more powerful exercise. I have 17.3kgs to go... Until I am happy with my weight. :)

James & Lael's Wedding

On Saturday Kurt and I were so blessed to go to Melbourne and see my eldest brother James and his lovely girl Lael get married, It was an amazing experience and a true blessing. It was good to see my other siblings on the day too... It was such a happy occasion as it is the last change all of us will be together for my mother, Although the day was not about that it was a chance to see Lael and James get sealed.

Here are a few pictures that were captured from the day.

Not coping

I have the best family in the world and being away from them is so hard sometimes. I truly do miss the support of my siblings. They are each wonderful and I am so grateful for them. Since Mum has been diagnosed with a brain tumour, I feel like no one cares that my family is big enough to support it's self but sometimes I feel I get forgotten about from people that say there my good friends. I know I will always have Kurt to lean on but other times I need someone to talk to besides a social worker or my husband. I actually want my friends to message me for once and ask how I am doing. Its not like I have been through this before.

While my 5 week old is fast asleep at 2:20am in the morning I am wide eyed a bushy tailed... WHY cant my brain turn off and let me sleep. Does my brain not know I have 3 kids to look after tomorrow by myself while my husband works hard to get a uni degree. I just wish at 2am in the morning they had better tv shows, rather than the Love Boat. I doubt old people are up this late. COME ON TV NETWORK put more good shows on rather than Home Shopping and The Love Boat.

Aching Bones

I can't believe how much I love the pain I am in right now... It's a good feeling to have my muscles ache. As I power on doing my hours walk each day, I complain and sook to Kurt how much I am pushing it. I get home and think I my goodness that was an amazing workout, I feel fantastic as my stomach muscles are starting to form and Kurt & Dad are telling me I look GREAT. I am starting to feel good again, Although now I wish I could get the sleeping right. I guess one thing at a time.

Monday the 1st Aug: 78.4kgs

Loosing Weight

I know I was 17 when this picture was taken but its on my wall at home as my goal... I hope to see this person within the next 3 months... Maybe not that skinny though. As my Mum use to tell me when I was 17 she was convinced I had an eating disorder... Kurt and I highly disagree because I was eating a lot but working my little butt off to look like that.

And to now.. Well this picture is about 18 months old and I was at my heaviest of the 84kg... I have chose to start loosing weight and to look good again to be active again. As I see all these weight loss commercials that they want to loose weight for there kids, Which I do but Kurt keeps reminding me that you want to loose weight for yourself because you want to feel good again.
