It's been a while since we updated our blog, how time flies!!

Ela is a complete delight to us. She is bright, eager to learn, and always, always happy.

She's obsessed with lipstick and nail polish, loves being chased around the house by Dad, likes a cup of tea in the morning and enjoys helping Mum with the housework.

Nana is one of her favourite people, she loves playing with our gentle dog, Molly and she is becoming quite the artist.

Here she is, playing in the sand at a local beach

WOW!! How time has flown!!

Ela is now eleven weeks old!!!!!! Ela's first Christmas has been and gone, and we now start another fun filled year with our gorgeous daughter. We so look forward to watching her grow and develop in 2011.

We are blessed to have a daughter who is almost constantly smiling, why she is so happy I don't know, but god it is just amazing to see. I am sure she was born with a smile on her face !!!!!!! :)

Ela has just started to sleep through the night in the last two days, 11pm to 6am, which is just amazing.

Ela has been the perfect baby so far, contented and barely ever cries, just does the odd little mumer to let us know when she is hungary :)

Ela loves to play, and has started making lots of funny noises and squeels of joy, it is sooooo funny to listen to :)

10 days old!!

Can't believe Ela is now 10 days old!!

We have been back to the doctors for a check up and all is GREAT, back up to birth weight of 2.3kg's, umbilicle cord has come off and is healing well. Slight jaundice has settled.

Ela loves her baths!! And just seems to get on with just about everything, nothing phases her at all.

A HUGE celebration dinner was put on by the SI Doctors last night. Many couples with babies and IP's were there to celebrate there success of reaching a mile stone of 50 BABIES!!! It was a great night, and a chance to show off our beautiful girl!! She was the perfect angel and slept through the entire night :)

All our paper are now with immigration, so we now wait........
We hope to have Ela's citizenship by Monday, all being well.
Looking forward to getting back to OZ and celebrating some more, with our close family and friends!

                                                             PERFECT ELA!!!!!!!!!!!
