we arrived on thursday arvo, dumped our bags & headed straight to the city. we weren't sure where we were headed, but just wanted to make the most of the sunshine & being in sydney.. and just as well we did because the next day mirka didn't seem herself, so we took her to see a doctor on friday & before we knew it we spent all day saturday at the children's hospital. poor little girl. it was heartbreaking to see her lying in a little hospital cot. by the end of the day we were all exhausted, but it was mirka who had the smiles, waves & generosity to blow kisses to all the doctors & nurses. we didn't have a lot of our weekend left, or time to visit all the design stores i had planned, but at least we made the most of our remaining time by catching up in balmain with my bestie jacq. not a bad view from the swings at the local park hey? now i don't normally like to put photos of myself on my blog, but i thought this photo could double as an update on my preggie belly. i'm 24 weeks now & it's quite the soccer ball, all out front at the moment. i guess that proves the old myth of predicting the baby's gender because we found out we're having a boy! ok.. where was i? mirka proved herself to be a champion little flyer on her first flight.. note the bose headphones which were plugged in to her personalised inflight entertainment on the ipod.. nothing's too good for daddy's little girl! in the short time we had to get out & about, we fell in love with sydney again, but having said that, it was so nice to arrive home to our happy little timber house in melbourne. home.
