A welcomed change of scenery for our first night away together, watching the ferries go by from our bed at @pullmanquaygrand ✨☁️

I have no idea how we've made it through this year. Looking back through photos and videos today brought us to tears, realising just how far Ru has come. There have been more challenges, isolation and grief than I could have ever imagined starting a family. No one wants to see their child suffer, let alone grow used to it. Pat and I are both physical and emotional wrecks, usually taking on the roll of nurse / carers rather than new parents, still sharing shifts each other night to watch her. But then she laughs.. her three toothed, honest laugh from the gut until she cries. And we remember how deeply blessed we've been, with more love and resilience than I thought humanly possible. We are so lucky that she came in to our lives this year and chose us. To teach us, every day.
We know each year will bring new accomplishments and new battles but we can only hope the next brings her health, us hindsight, and happy times together. Thank you for everyone's support, with love for the new year from our little family to yours. ❤️

It feels surreal to sit here with Ru pulling at my hair, a year since I sat in this exact spot with her in my tummy. This was one of my only nearby places to escape to and feel a part of the world again when I finally got gate leave while on bed rest for several weeks in RNS Hospital. Living on the Maternity Ward has been one of my most challenging chapters of the past year, hearing newborn babies cry metres away while I was desperately trying to keep "barely viable" Ru inside with steroids, antibiotics, daily scans and constant CTG. I prayed for her to be a tough cookie, but really knowing her (and her strengths) now it all makes sense. I just wish I'd known it then, to be able to enjoy that part of the ride. 🌈

From exactly one year ago today, on the last day of our road trip through New Zealand's South Island. We flew home the next day and started our wildest adventure yet... 🌱 A year of living in hospital, but now with our tiny little happy human making every moment more than worthwhile 💪✨

As most of you know we have spent majority of our year at @sydney_kids hospital for our beautiful daughter Rumi. We have experienced overwhelming support and offers during the past week from so many people worldwide who want to give to the hospital. We have decided to postpone our original intimate afternoon get together until after Christmas and New Years, for a bigger and better night to accomodate more people at the spectacular @thegrounds. Our eternal thanks to everyone who has helped so much already, and looking forward to sharing updated event details for the New Year ❤️

Enjoying every moment we have at home with our happy little sunshine 🌻
After spending every occasion in hospital this past year we feel extremely lucky that we will most likely be celebrating Ru's first Christmas at home, all together. This isn't the case for so many other families of unwell bubs and kids.
We will be back in @sydney_kids for treatment next week and thought I'd reach out and see if anyone, far or wide, person or business would like to contribute towards spreading some joy to the families in need of it. If you have any gifts for children of all ages receiving treatment, or maybe a dinner voucher for the parents who haven't been home in weeks, or to help @rmhrandwick make these families stay easier especially at this time of year, please email me at Even the smallest gift or gesture can brighten someone's day. 🤗✨

For the last few months I have been using @superelixir to help get myself feeling healthy and #happyontheinside again while living between hospital and home 🌱 "It can be difficult to allocate time to yourself as a parent of an additional needs baby but I find the most simple things can often help the most - buying groceries at the local Farmers Market each weekend, going for a walk together even if only around the block, having someone watch our daughter while we take a midday nap, and dive in the ocean any chance you get." 🌞🌻

I'm still waiting for my thicker skin to grow in, for it to bounce off when people question my "choice" to NG feed my daughter. Some babies are breast fed, some are bottle fed. Some babies are NG, G or TPN fed. If it is any of the latter I guarantee that those parents fight harder than imaginable for their children without the luxury of most choices. The way my daughter feeds doesn't mean we have any less of a natural bond. Overcoming the obstacles we have endured together only makes our bond stronger. 🌻

Making the most of getting to know Ru's whole face tubie free for the first time in months (if only for a few hours) ❤️
