Back from Australia

We've returned from our three week vacation in Australia. We are exhausted and have spent all weekend laying around - not sleeping and not doing anything. Tomorrow we return to work. That sucks! Here are some things from our trip:

1. K's Australian godmother wanted to know all of the details of how this works. She reminded us that the most important thing is breastfeeding. She told us about her pregnancies and births, and also about when K was born. We told her that we hope to call her soon with pregnancy news.

2. We cuddled a koala named David at the Lone Pine Koala Sanctuary in Brisbane. He was so cute and clung to us just like a baby. There is a beautiful picture of K holding David and the two of them looking into each others eyes. There is a professional picture taken by the park of the three of of that we plan to put in our nursury.

3. We visited the smallest penguins in the world, the fairy penguins in Philip Island near Melbourne, just 13 inches tall. It is fall in Australia, but the penguins are confused and think it might be spring, so they are going through a false mating period. We were surrounded by penguins trying to make babies. We think it's got to be good luck, positive energy.

4. We bought two children's books for our bookshelf, both about the adventures of koalas. We weren't planning on doing this, but we had $10 left of Australian currency, and we were at the Sydney airport leaving the country, and went shopping to spend the last of our money, and these books were just so cute.

5. We really missed our dog. We can't imagine leaving children for that long.

6. Today I got my period. Looks like we are getting started with this soon, just a couple of weeks away. And we haven't even picked a sperm donor yet.

Welcome back! I can't believe you were gone that long, it didn't feel like that at all. Sounds like you had a great time - we've started buying books for baby too.

Only two weeks until you get started!

Welcome back!
Sounds like a great trip!
And now fingers are crossed for this cycle.
