Here is my attempt at some traditional black and white photography with Milla Moo...I had her laid out on some black fleecy material I have bought for other photoshoots..
I nuded her up - for authenticity of course (hehe) and she obliged by weeing all over the material in five minutes flat! But I did get these three lovely shots and a sweet one of her bottom (which I thought I had best not post!)
Check out the tiny little rolls developing - yay baby!
Having a busy school holidays so far - we have been out or had visitors every day this week. Still going out tomorrow and Friday.. But kinda need to as Rodda will be sleeping off his 2 night shifts - eek! On my own ALL night...
Wish me luck in getting three girls, one baby, two dogs, three cats and me fed and ready for dreamland!

t's amazing how quickly after giving birth the creative energy returns. I was itching to scrapbook fairly promptly.. Had to wait to recover and I also had to wait until I wasn't napping all my spare time away!
Mind you spare time is at a premium aroud here. It is 8.30 in the morning and Milla rises around 7.30.. The other 3 girls get up MUCH later.. So I have found this a good time to post anyway. I have already put on a load of washing and am boiling the kettle for my brekky..
Thank goodness for the school hoidays.. It means 2 more weeks before I have to work out the nightmare of the school/kinder run with a 6 week old! Rodda has gone back to work today.. So it's D-day around here.. How will I cope on my own - with four..
I'll let you know tomorrow!! Hehe!
It's amazing what you learn to accomplish in little snippets of time though.. My scrapping and photo editing is done when she is asleep, or content in her bouncer.. I am learning that 'near enough is good enough'... I am happy with the layouts.. Just happy to be actually WANTING to scrap really!
Mind you I have also made to frames for gifts and I think I might attempt to get the sewing machine out for a layout today...
I must be mental..
Wish me luck for today.. Gonna go hang with my Mum and even might grab a little exercise.. OUt for a walk on this windy Spring day..

Looking pretty in pink and endearingly cross-eyed in that last shot! She was very alert from day one.. definitely not one of those sleepy bubs in the early days.. She stil likes her awake time now and can be awake up to an hour after a feed...More during that witching hour around tea time.. Her darling blue eyes follow you ar a toy if you have one..So cute.. She is also getting stronger in her neck and ill toss her little self around when I am trying to burp her...She is a very good burper - could win a competition with her belches! I am breastfeeding with her sitting up and facing toward me still and I am thankful to say that the reflux spewing has stopped...
Milla is having a lovely snooze at the moment though and her sisters are all at school and kinder - so it a lovely quiet time in our house..Perfect for blogging!
I have tried to scrap today..Hmmm failing badly..Mojo isn't quite fully restored yet..Probably has something to do with the brain fog and vagueness I am feeling due to broken sleep...Mind you Milla has been having a five hour and then a three hour break between feeds over night....That's pretty good...It's just getting used to it all over again!

Our darling Milla..Looking oh so cute..
or contented we are totally in love with her already....
She was definitely worth the wait..Even nine days overdue........I will post more shots as I get around to editing them. I am only up to day three so far!
Big thanks to everyone who has left messages for me..Especially to Mel..For posting Miss M's arrival whilst we were still in hossi...Also to all the girls from The Little Scrapbook Shop.. Thanks for still popping by and keeping in touch with me I really appreciate it - especially seeing as I haven't been at the site for absolute ages! I will get there - I promise!
I could go on thanking forever.. But also special thanks to Fee who created my nappy bag - which I adore - and it is in fully functional use!!
Milla and I are doing great. she is settling into our family well.. She is a bit of a spew bag - but we are sorting that out as I type...Gotta feed her upright..It was really the sweetest thing the first time I breastfed her that way. She looked up at me with eyes wide open as if she was surprised to see me there..So sweet...
I can here her stirring bye for now..
