It's bath time for Emily.  She loved it too.

Oh boy, does she look like Oliver!  It is quite scary just how much a like the two of them are.

Ooooh, look at these two cuties.  Oliver was so excited about his new sister and wanted to hold her - for all of about 5 seconds!!  LOL.  Look at that big smile on his face.  Bless him.

She is here!

Emily Rose Swain made her appearance at 8:07am weighing 7lb 50z or 3.315kg and measuring 51cm long.

Emily was in a bit of a hurry to come out after her eviction notice, so 30 minutes after breaking my water, she was here!

Here are the 3 of us afterwards.  Unfortunatley, Rob missed the birth!  He arrived about 5 minutes too late.

Time For A Swim

My two boys love to swim - can you tell???? LOL

Oliver has to wear his goggles now but when he was at swimming lessons, we couldn't get him to wear them at all! How times have changed.

Breath Rob!

With his goggles on, he can see underwater - that is what we have been telling him for so long and now he gets it! LOL. Bless him.

Look at me Mummy.

Well, it certainly seems to be a big week in the Swain's lives!!
  • Oliver starts pre-school
  • Move house
  • Fall pregnant!

How about that! I first thought the test was negative and put it aside in a plastic bag. Naturally, I was disappointed. Later on I went back into the bathroom and thought, I'll just check once more and to my surprise, there were two lines! Woo hoo. I think I will do another test tomorrow and if it is still positive, then I'll tell my parents.

Today we moved into our own place. No more staying with my parents. Not that it was bad but when you've been living away from your family for soooo long, it is hard to live with them again.

First Day at Pre-School

Hold onto your hats, as this is Oliver's first day at pre-school!!!! Where has the past 4 years gone? He is so excited about going but I'm sure that will change soon enough.

Here's my big boy with his bag on his back - it is nearly the size of Oliver! LOL.
I thought we might struggle with getting him to wear a hat but he seems pretty happy with it on.

A proud mum with her boy!

A proud dad with his boy!

And here he is at school. Can you tell he likes having his photo taken? LOL. His teacher's are Miss Amanda and Miss Brooke.
