Goldie Grace Withers' birth

Britt and I are very pleased to introduce Goldie Grace Withers to the world. Just before 11am we were standing around the birthing centre cracking jokes, measuring and weighing everything, because Goldie was two weeks overdue, even talking about the possibility of inducing Britt. At 11am contractions started and by 12:28pm on the 2nd of March, 2021, Goldie was earthside weighing 4 kilograms and healthy as we’d hope for.

We walked into the hospital at 9:18am after dropping Luna at kindy for the day, and walked back out at 5:45pm. It was the perfect birth day.

We’re so glad that our friend Bec Zacher was there to capture it for us.

Let me introduce you to Goldie Grace Withers

No-one’s betting on a 2% chance of winning anything. If there’s a 2% chance of anything happening, that basically means the thing isn’t happening. Our doctor said there would be a 2% chance of us ever falling pregnant, and an even lower chance of us having two children.

But by God’s grace we’ve won that lottery twice now, so I’d love to introduce you to our little girl born yesterday, 4kg and healthy as you could ever hope for, please say hello to Goldie Grace Withers.

Thank you so much to our friend Bec Zacher for these amazing photos.

We can dance if we want to. We can leave your friends behind. Cause your friends don’t dance, and if they don’t dance, well, they’re no friends of mine.

There’s a mum sitting in the conductor’s seat of the playground train Luna wants to drive. Do I have jurisdiction here or do I have to just sit here and let her ruin my kids day?

Turns out the TARDIS gets it’s time travelling power from books. Important lesson for us all to learn, ya know?

How to spot a good fish and chip shop.

1) it has the word ‘shack’ in its name 2) there are lobster pots hanging for styling 3) it’s near the ocean 4) it’s located at a wharf 5) Chico Rolls aren’t on the menu 6) there’s a grumpy fisherman on premises

Bonus points for the shack being a seafood type of shack, for example this one is called ‘The Lobster Shack’

All I want for all of you is to enjoy life as much as Luna enjoys ice cream

Proud to be racing in the Salamanca Place to Hobart pram race today. Photographed is my First Mate taking us over the starting line.

Whatever your wedding photographer is charging you, Luna will beat their packages by 10%.

Wedding has to start after her midday nap and she’ll need a never ending supply of Smarties.

Luna’s upgraded to a big girl bed.

Please don’t tell her that a big girl bed is just a cot with a side taken off. She thinks we bought her a new bed.

All of Luna’s friends were getting orange phones so Britt and I buckled and got her an orange phone #badparents

In other audlting news today, Britt and I just fist-pumped on a baby name subject to certain condtions.
