On Thursday I was thinking about the flight and having to tie the wrap up and then get Lilli into it and I just thought maybe I should look at some front packs and see if they would be easier to use. We jumped into the car and shot down to Baby City (honestly Nana and I must be their best customers!) to have a look at their front pack selection. We tried on 2 different packs and found one that was great. Nana bought it for us which was lovely. We got it out today and had a practice run in it. Lilli seems quite content in it and it really is easy to get her in and out of.

On Thursday, 14 May, we went to plunket for Lilli's last check up until we get back from Germany. She is doing really well and is above average on all counts. Her length and weight are both above average. Yay!!! My little girl is above average in height! At least that means she should be taller than me. :D She is still suffering a bit of colic and has really learnt how to express when she is not happy by screaming. Haha. It's pretty full on sometimes but we get through it. Little darling. She has a little hissy fit while we were with the plunket nurse and Tany calmed her down with me. She was quite impressed by how worked up Lilli gets herself and how wild she gets. Hahaha. My little feisty daughter. :)
She does look like a little angel in this photo though doesn't she?!
Then we went to town and bought a dress for Mummy to wear to Ulli and Tony's wedding in Germany which is just gorgeous before heading up to the hospital for Mummy's specialist appointment. Unfortunately some of the blood tests came back positive so some more blood tests were taken and we need to see the specialist again when we get back from Germany. It's possible that I have some tissue disease that sounded something like Lupis??? Hopefully all that it will mean in the end is that I will have to take half an aspirin a day during my next pregnancy but I guess if I have got the tissue disease then we will have more to discuss. Anyway we'll find out in September.
Last night poor Lilli had a sore tummy which would normally just make her a little grisly. But... unfortunately she was also very tired so I'm afraid that her colic got to be a little too much for her and she basically screamed all night. In the end I popped her in the car and drove to town to get some baby Panadol. I gave her a dose before driving back to Tony and Annie's and by the time we got home she was a lot better. We had a nice hot shower and got ready for bed then had another quick scream before going on the boob and falling asleep. Hallelujah! I went to bed pretty much straight after her - I was worn out too after all that screaming. It was awful - if I could have taken her pain and upset for her I would have gladly.
Today has been a good day. Lilli was back to her usual happy self. She had a wee episode this morning but has been lovely tonight after having a good sleep this afternoon. At the moment she is playing with her doting Uncle Toot and her cousin Jack in the lounge. Everyone here is going to miss us soooo much. We will miss them all too.
