A New Addition to the Family

Sorry for my blogging absence!  I have a very good excuse - promise.  Our family recently welcomed another beautiful girl -
Sarah Nahla

Contractions started Sunday and she was born late Sunday night weighing 7lb 3oz and is a very healthy and happy baby.  Lucky for me the nurses thought I was doing pretty well so I was able to be home the following afternoon (Monday). 

Sarah sleeps well - only problem is she has needed the constant contact when she does sleep so hubby and I have been taking shifts which leaves us both super tired but all part of having a newborn.  Chloe has been finding it tough to adjust to sharing her parents but is getting better.  We bought Chloe a present from baby Sarah - her own baby to look after which has been thrown to the ground a few times along with "I don't like my baby" usually when Sarah is getting some attention. 

Although Cloe does get a little jealous she still loves her sister and often strokes Sarah saying "it's awright" even when Sarah isn't crying and asks "let me hold him!" and calls Sarah baby George (the baby of a friend) ;p. 

I will try and post more regularly as I now have a new computer (and HEAPS to blog about!) - although with a new baby and trying to get into a routine I can't make any promises.
