pumpin!

204/365

I’ve been pumping milk for a friend’s baby and Priya is rather intrigued by the whole process. If you’ve ever pumped before you would know how valuable that ‘liquid gold’ is so you can imagine how frustrating it is when a little someone loves to run up and try remove the flange from my breast and starts spilling milk! Eary this morning after I’d finished pumping and bagged the milk, Peach declared “my go!” and attempted her very best to get some milk out, it was very sweet. I explained to Peach that she didn’t have any milks (or breasts!) but she was adamant that she did. After realising no milk would come out, she picked up her doll to breastfeed instead. Like Peach, I too find the milk going straight into the babies mouth a heck of a lot easier!

      @Danielle, Thanks Danielle. It turned out really great when I converted to b&w, it was very very early morning and she was standing in a stream of light from our window.

Sarah

Today my adopted sister Sarah returned from her 6 months living in Indonesia. We had missed her terribly and Theo had not met his aunty Sarah! When Sarah left for Bali only 2 weeks before Theo’s due date, I was pretty sad she wouldn’t be around to meet our baby. In fact, I may or may not have cried and tried to lay on the guilt  (yep, I am a jerk like that). Plus, you know, when you’re heading overseas to do aid work in a developing nation, you should totally feel guilty about leaving your friends. Perhaps the guilt tripping worked, or perhaps Sarah was actually just as keen to meet her first nephew as I was to show him off because we were her first port of call back home in Australia. We picked her up this morning from Brisbane Airport and had her all to ourselves for the afternoon. Theo wasn’t his normal happy self (he’s been a little off for the last 3 days) but he was still well enough to charm his way into her arms.

    I love him, I love him, I love him! Especially his pouty little lips while he sleeps! This was the perfect thing to come home to :)

Oh my sweet boys, I love you both more than I thought possible. Theo, I am so proud and happy that your Dada is who he is, you have my permission to turn out like him. Errol, I am so thankful that you are such a kind hearted man and an amazing father (except when you dress the children in inappropriate attire)

I couldn’t decide between these two photos. Lately Theo bear has been reaching out his hands and gently touching our faces, it’s sweet to see him reaching out, wanting to love and be loved. I am so glad Errol returns his affections.

    I love these! Don’t you love when they explore your face? I love to come home from work and play tickle on the bed with Oz…he loves it when I crouch down on top of him and his eyes get so big with wonder as he explores my face and hair – I let him go wild just touching and grabbing and squeezing. ;)

    Love it! Eli has been doing the same thing and it makes my heart squirm with sheer DELIGHT because he has the softest, most gentle hands ever. Cass was SO grabby, she never just touched, she always grasped and scratched.

little hands

I put Theo and Priya’s seats next to each other for the first time last week out of curiosity. Peach loves chattering to her brother and I wondered why they couldn’t sit and talk as we drove. When Theo started fussing in his seat I called back “Tell him it’s okay Peach, tell him it’s alright”. Almost immediately, Theo settled quite quickly which is unusual as he normally doesn’t settles once he starts in the car. When we stopped at the lights and I turned to see what was going on I saw Priya was holding her brothers hand. Peach smiled at me and said “Feo sad, he so sad mama”, smiling to reassure me she could take care of this one on her own. Since then Peach has taken his hand on all our little outings, happily telling her ‘Feo’ “dere is a horse Feo! Dere is a dog!” as we pass. This morning Theo was feeling very unhappy and cried for some time, Peach held his hand and said “oh Feo, it okay Feo!”. I am so happy they have each other.

    Georgia, this has made me cry – how beautiful!! I’ve just been going through all the precious photos in awe… of the sweetness of your children, of your incredible photography and of how the young Georgia who I once cared for in sick bay is all grown up and now a wife and mother of 2! You are truly amazing gorgeous girl!

      @Annette, Aw Annette, thank you! I too struggle to believe that the once chronic sick bay resident is now mother to two (and one who appears to be shaping up to be quite the hypochondriac like her mother!). Has been a very very long time since we’ve caught up! I hope all is well for you lovely lady. xx

    Priya is going to be the best big sister. I can’t wait until they can run around together and be adorable on their little legs.

      @bene, On their adorable little legs? haha. Yes, I can’t wait till they can play together either. Though Priya has already started saying “MUUUUM – FEO TOOK MY TOY!” in this annoying whining voice. It’s not fun.
