He rolled!!!

Our clever little boy rolled for the first time today ... from his tummy to his back, twice in a row. He was lying nudie on our bed, after a shower with Dad when he did it. Gareth and I were so excited that we cheered really loudly. Poor Jambin - he got such a fright at our cheering that he burst into tears. What a way to celebrate such a momentous moment.

His new trick!

Jambin likes to throw his hands over his face while feeding - maybe he thinks he needs to protect my modesty.


This is Jambin's usual look after he's finished a feed and is being supported in sitting to have a burp.

Twinkle toes

Gummy smiles

GreenKids Nappy

In groovy clownfish design.


Gareth and Pop tried, unsuccessfully, to get Jambin's handprints. Unsuccessful, because his little fist stayed curled up, and just wouldn't open out flat.


We're still having lots of problems with breastfeeding, but these are some lovely photos of when it's working out OK:

Some great resources for anyone experiencing breastfeeding problems are:
Australian Breastfeeding Association

This is the rug that Nanna knitted ....

... while going across the Nullabor Plain. Grandad says that he helped by doing all the driving so that Nanna could knit.

Berry Plush nappy

We've been using modern cloth nappies with Jambin, and disposables for outings. Some of our favourites are Baby Beehinds, BumGenius All-In-Ones, and hemp prefolds. This one is a Berry Plush All-In-Two nappy ... very luxurious for Jambin's bum!

Snuggles and smiles

This is the Cosy Hugs bouncinette that Nanna and Grandad bought for Jambin:

Stripey Boy!

Kondalilla National Park, Maleny

Terri and Wendy - the 'aunties' - came to visit for the long weekend, and took Jambin on a trip up to the Sunshine Coast Hinterland to the Kondalilla National Park, where the adults had pretzels, organic cheeses, and some nice white wine ... and Jambin had milk, glorious milk!
After lunch, we went for a walk to the Kondalilla falls.

Another bath photo (they're just too cute!)

Baroon Pocket Dam, Maleny

On Sunday we took Jambin to visit the Maleny, on the Sunshine Coast Hinterland. We are hoping to instill in him a love of nature from a very early age.

Bubbles and Bathtime

Jambin, at 5 weeks old, enjoying his bedtime ritual. First, a lovely warm bath with Daddy. Next, a massage with Mummy. Then, back to Daddy for story-time, and back to Mummy for a feed before being tucked into bed.

We make gorgeous babies!

These two weren't very happy about having their photo taken ...
