My Wonderful Wife!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

As you all know it was my birthday on thursday and i turned the magical 25, i had a wonderful day with Kerrin coming out to work for lunch and bringing my a flash as lunch, then coming home and having my favourite meatballs cooked for dinner, not to mention the fabulous afternoon tea that my team put on at work. But i had a wonderful day.

Then under the disguise of having Ang and Jay around for dinner last night, i get the surprise of my life when all the rest of my friends start turning up. Kerrin the sneaky devil had been planning this for about a month and with the help of Ang had got everybody organised without me knowing a thing. So our poor little lounge was bulging at the seams and everyone had a good night.

So with all that excitement over back to waiting for baby.

Impatient Daddy-to-be!

How silly, Alan calls me every day from work and even asks before he goes to work in the morning, "Are you having my baby today?". It is so cute. I keep reminding him that baby will come when it wants to and to get as much sleep as possible now as soon he won't be sleeping much and his time won't be his own. His reply: pouting and telling me, "But i want it to come out and play!" Hehehe, silly daddy.
I have everything ready for the much wanted arrival, have washed all those little clothes and made up the cot. Baby is slowly moving downwards and the midwife says things are progressing normally, so poor impatient daddy will just have to wait!

The curse of the first baby.....

Someone told me a couple of weeks ago that first babies are always late, I took one look at Kerrin and said "yeah right" she looked ready to 'pop' at any minute, however I haven't been around many pregnant women to have that much credibility behind my predictions.

So the talk now has started about what happens after "D-Day", quite honestly I am thinking a week (well certainly the way it is dragging at the moment) is a long time and there is still every chance that by next Friday I will be a proud new Dad, but others have different opinions.

But I guess it is still one of those wait and see things, ain't much I can do about it.

2 weeks and counting.....

Someone told me that the last month seems longer than the whole 9 months and I would have to agree with them. Anyway 2 weeks till due date has ticked over which means anytime in the next four or so weeks I am going to be a Dad.

Kerrin keeps getting my hopes up stopping for mysterious pains and has been really uncomfortable today, she hasn't sat still for too long. But knowing my luck this baby is going to hold on for as long as possible.

Anyway other than sitting here twiddling our thumbs, not much has been happening everything is pretty much ready to go.

Still no baby!!!!

Despite many requests the baby still does not want to come out and play!

But all that aside Kerrin is now home and getting things ready for the big arrival. The washing machine doesn't know what has hit it and the house looks tidier than normal, but still no sign of baby (just need to get her doing the garden and life would be good).

I guess i am just getting impatient but the count down is on, only 2 weeks and 3 days till due date, so could be any day now (except for next Thursday).

Baby Shower

Yesterday was the baby shower hosted by a friend from work who did a fantastic job, we all found out what our names mean, had a memory game etc and lots of chocolate!!!
Mum came up from Wellington and lots of work mates joined in the fun. Got lots of presents both from those who came and those who couldn't make it.
Thank you to Lynette and Trevor for the gorgeous handmade(?) blanket and jacket and AFL set! and of course everyone for all of their presents.

Here is Kerrin and yes it is all baby!!


With the difficulty of living away from family and of course the impending arrival of our little boy or girl, we thought it was about time to bring life to the internet and give everyone a reason to do a bit of surfing.

So here we are counting down the final three weeks to due date (so could be anytime from now i guess) when our little "Jack" will be born.

Why "Jack" you may ask? Well in picking names i came up with a great one (obvioulsy it was Jack) and tried for months to get Kerrin to come around to it, but to no avail. But after all that trying a lot of other people came accross to my why of thinking and now no matter what this baby comes out like it will be called Jack as a way to wind Kerrin up.

So now that Kerrin has finished work she is bound to get bored and i bet it will get updated frequently, but we are kind of new to this so bear with us for a while. But keep checking back regularly for new updates and stuff (who knows what we will come up with).
