I’ve finally been able to get take a moment to introduce you to our newest family member, who arrived in November, 2014. On the blog she will be known as ‘Boo’. I have to say, giving her a special online blog name has been harder than picking her real name!
The name ‘Boo’ quickly become a nickname that older sister Possum (aged 3 years) began calling her from the moment she arrived. It has consequently stuck within our home and is now used as a sweet term of endearment.
When Possum met Boo for the first time in the hospital, it was quite clear that she was feeling a little overwhelmed, despite all the preparation we’d done prior to her arrival. It was, however, after a few short minutes, Possum began playing a sweet little game of Peek-a-boo, almost like an ice-breaker. It absolutely melted my heart to see their sisterly connection begin within hours of Boo’s entrance into the world.
And so it has continued…..
Sometimes I need to pinch myself at how truly blessed I am to have two beautiful girls in my life. I know I’m lucky and I take a moment every day to feel thankful. It’s wonderful being a family of four. It opens up a whole lot of new challenges but I’m taking it one day at a time and doing my best to enjoy the journey.
So, whilst I may have a bit more on my plate these days, I look forward to continually bringing you all sort of wonderful ways to engage in play with your children. Thank you to everyone who has emailed and shown their support and love. I appreciate it more than you know. X
