Monday 28th July - Abbey arrives home at Owen Springs!!

Well we've had the BIGGEST week of our lives so far and are now at home at Owen Springs. Abbey will be 1 week old tonight at 11.36pm!! Thanks to everyone who sent their best wishes and for all the phone calls to say congratulations.

Mum arrives on Thursday to lend a hand and to meet her brand new Grandaughter. We've come a long way in the last week and we think Abbey is just perfect. Can't wait for you all to meet her soon... In the meantime here are some more photos to keep you updated!!

Say hello to our newest family member, Abbey!

Hi everyone, just a really quick blog, Kylie gave birth to a healthy girl on Monday night, Abbey Lynne Cowan. She did great, and both mum and baby are doing well. Here are a few quick pics, more to come no doubt!!

Only 2 weeks (?) to go until a life changing arrival

Well as much as I hate this photo and am embarrased to show it, here is a photo of me at 38 weeks pregnant. Looking pretty damn big all over really!

Finding it really weird to go from very busy full time work to maternity leave, but trying to savour the time while I have it. It's been good for getting that last bit of preparation done.

Everything seems to be going well but we'd still like the baby to arrive a week early... We're a bit too excited and impatient for it to be a week late!

Well this will be the last 'pregnancy posting' until the baby arrives - we'll be a mum and dad in the next photo you see!! How scary!
