kate5kiwis: sun kissed Kinsee


“If you were all alone in the universe with no one to talk to, no one with which to share the beauty of the stars, to laugh with, to touch, what would be your purpose in life? It is other life, it is love, which gives your life meaning. This is harmony. We must discover the joy of each other, the joy of challenge, the joy of growth.” — Mitsugi Saotome

sun kissed Kinsee

lovely Kinsee, we last felt you on friday, tucked up in mummy's tummy at the beach where we painted mummy's toenails for her, cos she couldn't reach! mummy was really wowed by this photo, she thought it was perhaps the moment when your soul was given to you?

last night you finally arrived at home, surrounded by your brothers and sisters. we're coming to see you on friday when we'll finally get to hold and snuggle you. we've got a pressie for you Kinsee, tucked up inside this pretty paper:

and what is it?? my first *taggies* mini quilt. it's ten inches square and has little *tags* out the sides for you to touch and hold and generally snuggle up to.

the vintage fabric side, so cutesy

the baby kisses side

when we come over, we'll be bringing a wee pressie for mummy too, cos she's the one who's signed up to grow you so beautifully.

it's a bit of pinky sweetness, with a pearl bracelet inside. we're so excited that you're here Kinsee, and we look forward to watching you grow.

'What do ya call this luv? It's sponge dear. Oh it's how ya do it.'
You make simple things stunning - and then wrap them in simple things and make them exquisite. Some people just have it - and you certainly do.

yep, you girls are *such* a bad influence on me *grin*

yeah, it's ok, there are five or six of the ladz going: safety in numbers you know...

i love the spongecake/icing sugar scene.
and just found this pearl of wisdom from dale kerrigan, lol:
Mum said it was funny how one day you're not famous, and the next day you are. Famous. And then you're not again.

yeah i really loved birthing at home the best. i hated having to get in the car and yell at hubby all the way to the hospital to *pull over to the side of the road* and then waddle painfully in and deliver the baby half an hour or ten minutes later. talk about stress out. i loved the candles and the music and the uninterrupted birthing-bubble i found myself in, staying at home.... X

yeah, The Gorgeous Debbie always says, "just tell us where and when the party is, and kate and i'll be half an hour late!!" lol

Do you remember that Grant had said that if I was late to the wedding, he would leave....which I knew he wouldn't - but just to prove him and everyone else wrong, we arrived about 4 mins early, and everyone was still standing out the front, and Grant was there chatting with someone, so I had to duck down and yell to the driver "go round the block - go go!!" Moral of the story, it is always better late than never...!
