Here we are on day six, eyes open and ready for a play. More visitors (although numbers are down on the previous birth…), lots of cuddles for all.

Here are some visual updates


Homecoming

I don’t think Mieke even realised she was in a car today, slept all the way home (mind you, the whole journey takes about 4 minutes!).

We did find time to stop off at a café on the way, hot chocolates and raisin toast…

Let’s see how sleep goes tonight.


Cleaning up

M & S stayed in hospital for a couple of nights to rest and recover. While they were there, it was time for visits and various jobs, like having a first bath.

Here are some of the pics from their time in hospital.

Meeting big brother

A busy first 24 hours of Mieke’s time on earth. Plenty of visitors today, the most excited was Big Brother Cosmo.

Here are some more picks from day one. I left for home with an exhausted Mumma and little sister, resting in each others arms.


Remembering how to spell Mieke…

Sarah has a great tip on how to remember Mieke’s spelling.

In German (and perhaps other languages), whenever i and e are together, the second letter is the one that you take to sound from.

For example, ‘Steiner’ is Sty-ner, whereas Mieke is, mee-ka.

While you were tucked up in bed, Mieke slid into the world.
