Right. It has been far too long since I blogged, so here I am to tell you about Elspeth's amazing week and our holiday on the coast.

She is now four months old.

In the last week she has rolled over, eaten solid foods, begun to regularly sleep through the night (11pm to 7am), and been dunked in the ocean. How awesome is my baby?

So anyway, mum and dad picked Ellie and I up on Saturday to head down to Merimbula - Aidan had to work, so he came and joined us on Monday. The weather was great - almost cold at times, a lovely contrast to Canberra's unholy heat. We swam in the sea, we walked on the beach, we read books, mum and dad were utterly enthralled by little Elspeth - she's turning into such a giggle-pot! It's gorgeous. She is just growing up in leaps and bounds; it won't be long before we need a priso- er, playpen!

And now we're home again, and that's all I have to say about that.

She's gorgeous! What a doll... but she doesn't look too impressed with the stuff Dad is trying to shovel into her mouth!

They grow so fast.... :-D

I just woke up this morning with you on my mind, Stace! Kind of wondering where you've been and all but then knowing that you have a new baby, husband, home and you are so busy! I know, because we have our little grandson for 12 hours a day! And love every minute of it! glad to hear that all is well and little Elspeth is doing so wonderfully and ya'll are so happy!
It's wonderful to hear from you! Tell Aidan that "Jewel" says hello!!! And give little Elspeth a cuddle for me!!
