Meet Xander...

We had two lovely days in Sydney meeting my new nephew Xander. He was born 6½ weeks early, so when we met him on the weekend it was only two after his due date! He is absolutely perfect and beautiful and soooooo very snuggly. Well, he pushes himself away to have a look at who's holding him, then comes in to snuggle and go to sleep.

We stayed with my sister Alicia, David and Xander, and my sister Charlotte and Will came over to visit, as well as my cousin Kirrilly and her family. We didn't get to see my sister Felicity and her family cos 7mo Sienna was in hospital with Bronchiolitis. Poor thing, she's still in hospital four days later.

So here are some more pics from our weekend. Beautiful Xander, smiling a little as he was waking up...




We went out for delicious Yum Cha, next to Ikea, just before we came home. It was SO good and we ate so much. {Nice face below Will} As we were leaving Dave said I could look in Ikea for 15 mins.... well I think that's impossible. I whipped around the top floor and as we were about to go downstairs to see all the "market" stuff (I think that's what it's called, and that's what I was mostly interested in) Dave said the 15 mins was up! So I didn't get anything! So near.... and yet so far... I love Ikea. :(

Hi Yvette
Aw, baby Xander is gorgeous!!!! I'm glad you got to have a lovely visit with your sisters and I hope Sienna feels better very soon and is able to come home from hospital...

Ikea - well I would have ignored that 15 minute time limit and kept shopping! I hope you managed to grab a catalogue at least!!! KIM:)
