Zalia is 9 weeks

I have not written much, just have been so busy with Zalia and really have been in zombie land. She is 9 weeks and a half. She is a great little baby, always quiet, always good. She has started to talk and coo sweatly like a little bird and is happy. She smiles and feeds well and sleeps well waking once a night either 1 or 2 or 3 am and then waking again either 5 or 6 am. The other night she woke at 4am for her night feed. I am on antibiotics with mastitis for the third time, it suxs and the headache and fever that comes leading on the mastitis is the worse pain, worse than the flu. However she is still eating well. We love her to bits.
Joaquin always wants to kiss her and says I love Zalia, and "She is cute" and "She is beautiful". At first he called her a he. He is also very adorable and settling in well with his new sister. He is three now and we had a party at the park for Joaquin's third birthday. It is cold here and has rained a lot. Today was sunny and we managed to go to the park in the afternoon and I managed to go the hairdresser and got my hair done.

Joaquin's third birthday

We had Joaquin's third birthday in the park. His friends came, he played in the playground and with his friends. He got presents. We had thomas cupcakes and a thomas cake, aswell as sandwiches de miga, empanadas. My mum made an ensalada rusa and Jas and I made chocolate crackles. It was a success and there was alot of yummy food. I hope Joaquin had fun and remembers this day.

Zalia is 7 weeks

Elizabeth Zimmerman suprise jacket knitted by my mother, so cute and sweet. Need to upload a better photo.

Joaquin is three today

Joaquin is three today, he opened some presents in the morning and then in the afternoon when his father came from work.
He played in the park with his little friend and we made some chocolate cake in the afternoon and had it with dinner. He helped me make the cake.
I love him so much and can not believe how fast three years have gone. He has grown into such a beautiful, sweet, inteligent and caring little boy. Happy Birthday Joaquin, you are the sun and the moon in my life, you give me happiness and teach me to grow and love. I love you, te quiero, te amo te adoro mi nene!

Zalia is 6 weeks

Zalia turned 6 weeks on Wednesday.
She had her vaccinations yesterday and did not really cry, just a small cry for each jab in each leg and drank all the oral vaccine as if she was gulping down a softdrink after a very thirsty day.
She is a gorgeous little one, she slept from 10.30 to 12.30 last night then fed then went back to sleep, then woke up at 4.55 for a feed and went back to sleep at 5.30. She then got up at 8am. So it was her longest sleep yet. Other nights she was sleeping and waking every hour and a half (a growth spurt at 4 1/2 weeks) and that was exhausting. Mostly she has been sleeping 2 1/2- 3 hour stints. I have had mastitis twice and very grazed nipples, ouch. Very painful.
Yesterday Zalia smiled ( i think) and she has started to say little things. She is gorgeous and so sweet. Never cried only when hungry. Joaquin loves his little sister and is always giving her a kiss on her head.
He has gone to day care today, the cleaners are here, my mum is knitting a little cardigan for Zalia using the suprise jacket pattern by Elizabeth Zimmerman. Lovely, All is ok.

Sydney Biennale 2010

On Sunday 30th May, we went to Cockatoo Island and the Museum of Contemporary Art on Sunday the 30th may to see the 17th Sydney Biennale. It was good, the highlight was the free ferry ride to Cockatoo Island, the giant hubble telescope made from wood pannels, the instalation of tin roofs and some art work in the museum made from stickers. We then caught the ferry back at 4.30 and the harbour was beautiful with the afternoon light. We managed to see the Sydney Light Festival VIVID, which lights up Sydney harbour buildings including the Opera House and buildings at Circular Quay and had dinner at a german restaurant. I was feeling very tired, when we got home I had a temperature of 38.2 degrees c and the beginnings of Mastitis. Not good but fun day.
