Family Holiday

We went away for our first family holiday after Christmas.

One of our roadtrip pitstops was to the Australian Garden, Cranbourne. I've been wanting to visit here for such a long time. It's so different from your usual Botanic Gardens.

We spent a few nights camping with pals in Warburton. It's so beautiful out there, really lush and green, which is very different to the Australia that's presented in the Gardens.

And it was freezing at night, which is pretty weird for summer in Australia. Look how rugged up these dudes are!

This mossy fern filled forest really reminded me of New Zealand.

The devonshire tea in Warburton is amazing. Those vanilla slices were a bit much though. I could only manage about a quarter of mine.

This towel…

… Looks so snuggly. Perfect for wrapping up in after a long day at the beach.

A new year

My friend Nuala took these photos on New Years Eve after I had gone to sleep at 10pm. Having spent last New Years Eve in hospital, going to bed early with Ray asleep beside me in his travel cot was my idea of the perfect night!

2014 has started pretty well for us. After taking Ray to a Feeding Clinic for the past four months, we were finally able to start weaning him from his nasogastric feeding tube. He's now been sans tube for two weeks! I still have a lot of anxiety about whether he's eating enough, but the Feeding Clinic team have been thrilled with his progress and are really reassuring. I guess I still desperately want him to start eating like a ravenous beast so he starts packing on some weight. He's doing so great though, I think that in my head I still haven't caught up with how far we've come.

We took this photo when we got home from the clinic after taking the tube out. He looks so pleased with himself! We're so proud of him.
