New Photos!

Dearest Malakai,

My boy... I am writing you now from my desk back at work... yes! Mommy went back to work today. I thought it was going to be harder than it has been to return to work, but having Joyce at home with you has made it so much easier! I can call Joyce and she tells me what you're up to - eating, playing or sleeping. She tells me you have been such a good boy today - but what's new?? You are always good!

We had a really great last week together my angel. We moved to your aunty Leigh's house last Wednesday because she got married on Friday and we had to help her with all her last-minute plans! Mommy had to buy you a new camp-cot, which is really cute! It was like going on a 4-week holiday - the amount of stuff I packed for you!! Hot Clothes, Cool Clothes, Emergency-I-pooed-my-pants Clothes, blankets, towels, nappies, cream, shampoo, wet wipes, medicine, sterilising equipment, nose-sucker-thingy, bottles, formula, car seat, relaxing seat, toys, gymni, your favourite cow... all had to be packed and brought along! Needless to say, I didn't use half the stuff, but at least it was there in case... So! It was our first overnight experience, and I think we all did very well!

Aunty Leigh got married on Friday to uncle Kim and now they are also expecting a baby! What a wonderful surprise that soon you'll have a cousin you can play with!! I am so happy for them!

Your Granny Dye was here for a week as well - so it was so nice for her to see you and and your smiles! She missed you so much my angel!

Ok - so that's our news for the week!

As always, you and your dad remain my soft place to fall (now more than ever), my bright shining lights that I follow. As long as I have you two in my life, I have no need for anything else.

You are all my Reasons for Being,

Congrats Kim and Leigh - may this little bundle of joy growing inside you bring you an endless amount of joy, love and happiness! Your wedding was like a fairy tale - Im sure it seems like a dream to you both! Malakai - you are looking so cute my boy, not only on the photos but also in real life! You looked too adorable at your aunty Leighs wedding, and everybody has fallen so in love with you (did you know that grown men were fighting to hold you!!!) thats some accomplishment!! He he... Anyway I think you have such a wonderful and sincere mommy - she loves you so much so that she went back to work today to give you everything she can! She is just the greatest! We are all lucky to have her in our lives! God bless and much love, Conrad, Megs and Keaton
