Yesterday Lacy finally got the courage to bath the baby...

ABOVE:  Gee I hope this woman knows what she's doing... cos I'm not feeling it right now!

ABOVE:  sheesh... I really don't like this!!!

ABOVE:  see?  This is me super grumpy face!  Get me clothes on Mum!

ABOVE:  finally!  The torture is over.... thank goodness. Time to have a big sleep to get over the trauma.

TODAY:  more of the same... looking after baby and Mum.... housework... sewing.... and after lunch the midwife is visiting again.


After Keera's very unsettled night two night's ago I suggested Lacy give her more formula if she didn't settle last night. 
So of course Keera wouldn't settle in the night, so Lacy gave her a 'top up' and what do ya know... baby slept !
Awesome, we have a wee piglet in the house!
She is taking after Griffin for sure. lol

HAPPY ELF MOM:  She is not as yellow today, so won't need to go under the lights for treatment, which is great.  She is feeding well and sleeping well and pooping well... so in all... EXCELLENT!  lol

Just got a text from Russell (son) ... his partner Tess is in labour ... so she will no doubt be having her C-Section TODAY... soooo exciting.

I've been out and done a few jobs.... and am now home, sitting in front of the phone waiting for NEWS!  I can hardly sit still...  lol

There will be a new baby in less than half an hour!!!!!!!!  Tess is heading into surgery NOW....

ABOVE: he sent me this "GOING IN"!  And I told him the next one better be of a baby!!!  *smiles*

ABOVE:  WE have a new BABY BOY!!!!!  Moments old... in Kalgoorlie, Western Australia.  Name to come.... weight to come....

WELCOME to our world BODHI ISIA H.

Russell just sent me a little VIDEO of the birth... magic!  Clearly I will NOT be putting that on here! lol
But so amazing!  I wish so badly that I had been there. 

ABOVE: minus the hat.... he looks a bit like Russell did as a newborn... only Bodhi has less hair.  Isn't he freakin cute!!!

I'm wrapt... No# 10 grandchild.
How many get to welcome 2 grandbabies into the world in only 6 days!!!

ABOVE:  Sleeping like an angel....BODHI is adorable! He weighed 6 pound 7 ounces, so just a little man.  3 weeks early, but perfect.

Anyone getting confused with all these babies on me blog?  lol
There will no doubt be lots of photos to come... sorry in advance!  *smiles*

End of Day:  what an AWESOME day!  I'm so happy right now... it's a lovely feeling.
nite nite.
ANON:  THAT is none of your business !!!


  1. Very cute and such a lovely name :)

  2. How is the yellowing/jaundice going? Is Keera doing ok? What's up?

  3. Keera is precious! Congrats to all!

  4. I wonder if it's worth trying some lavender baby wash in the bath? I know it's a warm bath you're using, so it may just help soothe her. Massage after too, might make her look forward to the bath.

    Just a couple of suggestions... :-)

  5. Glad she is so well!! She sure looks loved. :)

  6. Omg ...in the last photo Keera looks soooo much like Griffin!
    Such a sweet baby!

  7. wahoo another baby comming

    Congratulations for the 10th time!! And a handsome little boy!! You are going to need a bigger house so you can get them all around the dinner table at Holidays!! Two in 6 days is amazing!! Lucky you!!! Keera doesn't care for her bath does she? You know doing it in the kitchen sink might be easier on the knees and back!! you can put a big towel in there and fill it with water and wash away - it'd be so much easier!! ...debbie

  17. OMG! How wonderful! Congratulations Russell and Tess xxx

  18. Congrats Grandma! He is adorable!

  19. 6pd 7 oz?? I think thats what i guessed for Miss Muppet! How exciting for your family. Congrats to all.

    Congratulations to you and Stu and all the families. What a great week! Lots of grand babies, yeah!! Cheers Glenys

  23. I had planned to NOT publish this comment, but changed my mind as you lovely people wouldn't know what I was cross about, so here it is: Anonymous has left a new comment on your post "KEERA BEING BATHED BY HER MUMMY":

    Question? By the looks of it you guys have plenty of money for new rugs and new beds so why the hell dont you visit your own son in Oz????

    Congrats on the new baby & well done Lacy, you are doing such an amazing job and you should feel so proud!! Chris I am so glad you feel happy today. It's funny isn't it? There are some miserable A•holes that only feel better when they stir the pot or put other people down. Don't let the troll take the shine off your happiness, instead pity them & their misery. Congrats again & bless your beautiful (huge) family xx Bec

  25. Firstly congratulations on grandbaby # 10.

    Secondly, you must be so proud of Lacy, she is doing really great, having a new baby is stupidly stressful and a huge learning curve.

    Thirdly - Anon WTF seriously!!! I really want to give you the benefit of doubt and assume that your comment was written quickly & wasn't meant to be so rude.

    Finally Chris - we could never get sick of pics of the babies :-)

    Congratulations on your handsome baby boy love the name.

    Lacy looks as if she is getting the hang of bathing Keera .... not an easy job,at the best of times...lol. Is she looking forward to getting them into her new home. How lovely to have all those lovely grandchildren, I'm very envious.

    Those that are giving such cruel remarks, what sort of head and brain have they. You do the best you can with what you have..., you don't have to answer to anyone.
    Such nasty comments I hope it comes back on them and bites them on the bum

    lots of hugs to all your babies. from the UK.


  27. Congratulations on the newest addition to your family ... another cutie :)

  28. Oh my what a beautiful little guy. Congrats again!

    Congratulations to everyone!

  30. Keera has a ton, I mean a ton of hair...what a cutie! Nice that you are taking care of her and mom for a bit. And Bodhi is adorable too. He looks like a big one! Where did they get the name, very unusual, at least for around here. You are so lucky to be blessed with so many grandchildren. I wish for just one! at least one! lol

    Love your quilt, that is a different way to put them together, but much easier than sewing them all together by hand!

  31. Congrats on the new addition to your family!! Such a beautiful looking little one.

  32. He's so beautiful! Congrats on another adorable grandchild!

  33. Hi, Chris. Interesting this "anonymous" is going on in two different blog entries on the same thing. Check your stats and see where "anonymous" is coming from; should be interesting. :/
