Life as 5

"One, Two, Three, Four, Five people are in our family.
One, Two, Three, Four, Five people are in our family. 
We are best friends that love each other, that's our family, that's our family!"
Now sing it like Muno from Yo Gabba Gabba! My girls can be found humming or singing this to themselves of late! Quite cute really!

Our little lion cub has certainly made his presence known. 7kg of needy newborn! We've rocked and patted and shushed and muddled our way through the last 9 weeks! Thankfully he agrees to sleeping at night with mostly just one quick feed in the wee hours of the morning. 

Daytime is his trying time... Cuddles in the sling seem to be an all round solution for nap success and mummy still getting things done or playing with the girls. 

But how could you not give in to snuggles with those big blue eyes!?

So washing is taking a little longer to hang out! (And being done at 11pm!)
Dishes are dirty in the sink a few minutes more.
It takes advance planning and baby seating arrangements to water the veggie patch!
Dinner is cooked with little cub in the sling.
Dinner is sometimes yogurt. Or eggs. Or toast. 
Dinner is often cooked by hubby.
Dinner is awesome!
On the plus side - hubby bought me a Dyson Cordless Vacuum. It is amazing! Everyone should have one! It may even beat my dirty little secret that he gifted me last time we had a baby!!

Anyway, some days are rough. Some nights are rough. But we're persevering... and speaking of perseverance.. I stumbled upon these wonderful reminders to myself!
