Koala Cuddles Explained

On Thursday the lady baby was listless. When i put her down on the couch she curled up and went to sleep. When I sat with her on the bed she snuggled into my chest and slept a little while longer. This followed a week of especially clingy behaviour - a couple of trips to the doctors and an x-ray later i was informed she has pneumonia. As a result, things have been pretty lazy around here. We've been hanging close to home, listening to these melodic tunes, working in the garden and relaxing in the shade of the magnolia, only heading out for fresh coffee and supplies.

if you're on instagram you would have been bored by the bombardment of koala cuddles, but if not- this has been the general state of affairs.


How's your weekend shaping up friends?

  3. Aw poor little girl. And poor mama. Hope you ladies are ok. (How beautiful is a sleeping baby on mum's chest?)

    I've been hanging out with the next door neighbors kids today, Rosie and Ben were busking out the front with their harmonica's, but I think Rosie thought she was waiting for a bus. x

  5. Oh poor little darling, bless her. Sorry to hear she’s been so unwell. It’s so awful when they’re ill, but the clingy cuddles you get are at the same time so precious. Take care and get well soon xxx

  10. Oh sweet little darling girl. Nothing breaks my heart faster than seeing a sick or injured little one. I say injured because my Mr4 seems to be doing lots of crazy 'boy' things of late and leaving himself somewhat worse for wear. Hope your little koala is all better soon xo

  18. Oh, poor Lady Baby. Good job on the koala cuddles - my midwife always told me you can't cuddle a baby too much and and I think that's true for all kids! You just can't give too many cuddles! All the best. Go away, nasty pneumonia!
