The last four months have flown by and we have been graced by many visitors and grateful for an extra room in the house.
Thanks to Meg for taking her holiday all the way down to Melbourne just to spend a couple days with us! Loved having you.
Thanks to Cha Cha and Haley for the quick lunch and meet up in Federation Square.
Got to see Mom and Dad for the first time in 2 years, and despite Dad’s intermittent business trip to the Philippines, we got a bit of sightseeing in, as well as some much needed quality time.
Katie has popped down a few times despite a very busy school and family regime, and I’ve been lucky enough to see her almost every time :).
Bex made us part of her Australasia adventure, and spent a few days here with us in Melbourne.
Grant and Gumby made it out from England, and I got some great quality time with Grant over several days.

The Thompson clan decided to give us the wedding reception we never had through a surprise dinner last Saturday night at JT's brother's home in Bendigo.
My sister-in-laws Fiona and Tash kitted out Jamie and Tash's backyard in candles and rosemary to create the most incredible and thoughtful surprise. All we knew was that there was going to be a dinner saying, 'Congrats on gettin hitched in Vegas, glad you're back in Aus, welcome home!' We had no idea that there would be a set up that looked professionally done. An italian spread fit for royalty, complete with a menu and place cards.
Of course I was in tears from the moment they ushered us into the backyard with the amazing extent they had gone to with this dinner. I even loved my Snow Queen cloak Fiona made to have me in something white and warm.
My words could never justify what a beautiful evening, and what a beautiful job everyone did to make this special evening for us. And my words could never express the gratitude I have to the Thompson clan for accepting me into their family as one of their own.
(Ultrasound from about 7 weeks...early April)
Looks like we'll have a little delivery for Xmas this year. We found out just after Easter that there will be a new Thompson added to the clan. I have been blessed with 7 straight weeks of nausea, a stomach bug that lasted 2 days and now a beautiful head cold. To add to my incessant exhaustion, breaking out like I'm a teenager, I'm still waiting for the f*&^ing glow that should be approaching.
WHERE'S MY GLOW GODDAMMIT! :-)
And I can't cook anything!?! It makes me totally nauseous. My poor husband hasn't had me cook dinner save 2x in the last month, and one of the those was an already roasted chicken from the super...that counts, right?
Hopefully now that we're in the 2nd trimester things will start to settle down a bit. Looks like we'll have to postpone our Thanksgiving trip to California as my due date is scheduled just afterwards, but we'll try to give advance notice on the reschedule.
Enjoying my yoga and dance teaching in the meanwhile, and JT is busy with an insolvancy firm he used to work with a few years before moving to London. We'll keep you posted when we find out gender.

The closest I'll get to a puppy for a while.
After nomadic life since February, we are finally out of suitcases (mostly). We found a sweet, little three bedroom brick house in Port Melbourne. We're a short walk from the tram that facilitates a ten minute trip straight into the CBD. The plus side is that we're also a hop, skip and jump from Bay Street. Bay Street is the heart of Port Melbourne complete with 2 supermarkets (one of them a little organic shop), multiple hairdressers, restaurants, pubs, bakeries, and other little handy places. And the best part.......we're an 8 minute walk to the beach!
Home is sparsely decorated as we're starting over from scratch, but with the welcome addition of Azz moving in with us (JT's brother), we have a few more comforts about. Also a big thanks to Amber for lending us her couches and bean bag in the interim.
It's a work in progress, but it is slowly starting to feel like home. And we even have a special room for visitors...hint, hint!
