Today was a fantastic day! Jacob and I had so much fun. In the morning we went to visit Nan (at the farm) and Uncle Steve and Nettles were there too.

Jacob had a go at sitting on his own and it was the first time we had the toys out at Nan's - and what a great mess we made too!

We loved Uncle Steve's attention (anyone who gives JB vegemite toast and biscuits are friends for life :D )

This must have all too much fun because JB then slept for 2 hrs, which he never does at home 
- I was told that "everything is just better at Nan's"

We came home for our afternoon sleep and then we had a lovely visit from Aunty Tegan and cousin Mia (4 weeks).

A few jumps in my jolly jumper, a big feed, warm bath, a few cuddles and Jesus loves me and that was it! Big Sleep time for JB.

Of course, Daddy most likely had an even better day at the Christian Men's Convention in Wagga - I wonder who won the Go-Carts this year??

Introducing Jellybean

Here are the first pictures of our little jellybean!
He looked just like a little jellybean, and so his nick name was found :)

What an amazing experience!

I still can not find words to describe all those feelings...

Thank you Heavenly Father for the safe arrival of our healthy little boy.

How proud is his Daddy!

Week 2 ~ We were all so tried but happy...nothing like a Sunday afternoon snooze! :)

How small was his tiny head and how big his Daddy's hands.

Our first big drive - A trip to Sydney at 3 weeks old to pick up Joe & Helen (Our PNG friends) and stay with our Sydney Mum & Dad (Les & Carol)

Growing up so fast, smiling and giggling,,and just a little drunk!

JB and his toys and good mates..theres nothing like a good bath!

A great day of celebration was the day that we had Jacob dedicated. We made our promises to God to bring up our beautiful little boy to know our Lord Jesus as his saviour.

To Market, To Market...

Well, today is the big day of sending off our hard work to the sale yards.

Our lambs are big and fat and the market is quite good, so we are looking for a good return.

We had to ear mark them and then take them out to Col's.

He is sending some over tommorrow,
so they can be sold together.

We had some great helpers! (not) Thanks Custard!
Jellybean had a ball, going for a drive and then a quick cuppa at Nan & Pa's.

Today Damo planted our oats and clover - what a beautiful day for it!
Moist ground and warm sunshine!
Hopefully, come October we should have some excellent quality hay for Charlie (our milking cow) and her calf to be.
