I hope that you you are well and having a wonderful day.
You had a lot of “firsts” last week which included your first Networking Breakfast at Palazzo Versace. You were on your best behaviour and you received lots of compliments from attendees commenting on what a perfect baby you were. You slept for the entire event!
Last Friday you had your first flight! We went to Sydney with Daddy, Nonna and Poppa Roo and I was a bit nervous for you but I should not have been. You were great! You had a meal on the way up and on the way down and your ears were fine. You were in row 3 (and already have gold status with Virgin) and I think you even surprised the business man in our row because you did not cry! He congratulated you on your first flight when we touched down on the tarmac.
You also attended your first concert “The Eagles” in an open air theatre in the Hunter Valley. You slept through the entire show. There were some surprised looks when people saw you at the Concert but the music was not loud and we had mini earphones for you just in case! The concert was spectacular with the full moon rising in the distance. It felt like we were camping!
You slept well in your porta-cot and did not complain when Daddy, Nonna and Poppy Roo sampled some of the wines at the wineries (picture below).
The trip home on the plane was non-eventful with you sleeping most of the way! You did also keep daddy occupied for some of the flight by going to the toilet (which appeared to take a lot of effort – your Nonna and I could not stop laughing at your determined little face). Daddy changed you and he told me that it was a bit messy! The air hostess’ were very impressed that Daddy changed your nappy and told me that they do not usually see the Daddy’s doing that. You are a lucky girl to have such a great Dad.
Aunty A came to visit yesterday. She changed and dressed you and she was so impressed because you now sit and play with her, reach for her hair and chat away to yourself. We took Aunty A shopping to get her some things for Spain. You were a little angel. Falling asleep and then waking up to smile at every shop assistant and receiving compliments along the way. We bought you a few little outfits from Country Road. (We tried on four or five different outfits and you did not complain or cry once – the shop assistants were very surprised – I told them that you are used to a few outfit changes).
You are still sleeping through the night and eating well. You also “grab” and hold a lot more things now so we have to be careful. You put your hand in a bowl of tomato sauce the other night and because I was not expecting it all I could do was laugh! You also push yourself up on your hands now when you are on your tummy.
My tip for you this week is a quote by Steve Jobs “Your work is going to fill a large part of your life, and the only way to be truly satisfied is to do what you believe is great work. And the only way to do great work is to love what you do. If you haven’t found it yet, keep looking. Don’t settle. As with all matters of the heart, you’ll know when you find it.” In your lifetime I am sure that you will have several jobs but I think the same philosophy should still apply.
Lots of Love,
