How I’m voting in 2011

This post originally appeared on Matt’s Musings (Matt’s computer focussed blog). It’s general election time again in New Zealand this year, with the added twist of an additional referendum on whether to keep MMP as our electoral system. If you’re not interested in New Zealand politics, then you should definitely skip the rest of this […]

New Zealand, Photo sharing

We’re safely back in New Zealand for our semi-annual visit and we’ve all adapted to the change in time zone without too much issue. Micah was very well behaved on the flights. The only minor hiccup was explosive residue being detected on Micah’s stroller and food as we transited through LAX (worst airport in the […]

Visiting home

We’re on the final countdown till our trip home. This will be Micah’s first time in New Zealand, his first time meeting all of his aunties, uncles and other adoring fans. To say I’m looking forward to it would be a mammoth understatement. I. Can’t. Wait!!!!!! Currently writing lists, packing suitcases for three, and planning […]

Micah – 5 months old

Micah was 5 months old and 5.6kg yesterday. Where has the time gone!? He is a very happy, active little boy now. He likes to play with his toys, bop around in his door bouncer, and smile at himself in the mirror. All this activity during the day also means he’s started sleeping for longer […]

Micah – 3 Months Old

Our little man is 3 months old today! He’s growing nicely and passing all his tests so far. As of Tuesday he was 3.75kg, much chubbier and looking much like any other newborn baby that you might see around. We went out to the shopping center last weekend, and I lost count of the number […]

Home with Micah

When we went in to the hospital to visit Micah on March 26th the nurses were pleased to tell us he had taken all his feeds overnight fully from the bottle (no milk via tube). They told us if he continued to take all milk feeds they could remove the tube the next day. When […]

Micah – 4 weeks old

Time flies and already Micah is 4 weeks old! He’s still doing wonderfully and better than we imagined he would do. Here’s the quick summary of what he’s done in the last week and a half: Moved twice, from ICU1 to ICU2, and then very quickly again out of ICU2 and into the “Special Care” […]

Micah – 2 1/2 weeks old

Two and a half weeks after his arrival Micah is doing very well. We notice the little changes each day and are very proud of our little man and the progress he’s making. During his first week Micah lost quite a bit of weight and had a rough time with his IV lines. He needed […]

Micah – nearly 4 days old

Our little man is nearly 4 days old and is doing wonderfully for someone born at just under 30 weeks gestation. He’d already completely won our hearts before we’d even seen him, but he made absolutely sure of it yesterday when he opened his eyes for us for the first time, simply amazing! Kat is […]
