Kaisha's Birthday & Christmas

Christmas Day

Opening their sibling gifts.
We have a tradition that the kids make each other a small gift. This year Kaisha sewed a bag for Coen out of felt and Coen 'made' hair ribbons for Kaisha.

Kaisha will have a Birthday Party in early January when both Grandma & Grandpa and Nana & Granddad can come.
And one last random Jaya photo
Jaya is an angel so far. She has a bit of Jaundice which is probably contributing so just sleeps all the time. Now that we have Christmas and Birthday's over we have been enjoying just relaxing and having lots of cuddles.

Jaya Esme Wood

Hello everyone, Nick here.
Just a quick post to share with you the day the 5th member of our family arrived.

At about 6:30am Melissa's waters broke, we quickly tried to get Kaisha & Coen fed and dressed. By 7:45am we dropped them in the door of their daycare (literally).At 8:00am we arrived at the Royal Brisbane Women's Hospital, baby was already well on the way.

8:20am Jaya Esme Wood was born. 3.41kg or 7lb 8oz

Mel and Jaya are both doing well. Jaya is totally different to the first two. She is already feeding like a champion, in-between sleeps.

And what everyone is waiting for:
Warning: Some photos below were taken quite soon after birth.

 Jaya - just born
 Cuddles with Mum

 On the scales
 Nana came to visit quite early on

I'm sure there will be more to follow in the coming days.

Night all,
