What a year
Well tomorrow is my birthday. I'm not telling you all fishing for birthday messages. It is just that exactly one year ago tomorrow there were big things going on in Gaijin Housewife Land and I can't help but reminisce.
This time last year we had just moved to our awesome new house (which then turned out to be our awesome new house in a disaster zone). My sister and her husband had come to stay. I was desperate to get pregnant and some of you will remember my rantings in clomid induced craziness. That was fun. Then there was my birthday last year when I thought we had been unsuccessful AGAIN and I think I spent some of it crying and feeling very sorry for myself. Then the next day for some reason I thought I would do a test and for the first time ever saw that little thin pink line that today is a nearly 4 month old little munchkin called Amelia! But I couldn't tell you all that until later.
So a lot has happened to me in the last one year that is for sure. I'm kind of hoping the next year will be rather more calm than the last one has been.
So here is a picture of skinny Amelia, when she was just on boob juice, which I was struggling to produce enough of:
Actually looking at pictures of her when she was so tiny makes me quite sad.
Anyway, here is Amelia now (6kgs!), in the same outfit, which I kind of had to squeeze her into.
Looking much more healthy and is currently weighing in exactly in the middle of the curve of acceptable weights.
This is what Amelia got up to on the weekend.
Bareback dog riding.
Sebastian not so impressed.
