In this episode, our beautiful little daughter Tallula Mae was born and we take her back to the apartment to learn how to be parents. Everybody tell's us that sleep will become a thing of the past and they are not wrong 😂 Whilst one long night sleep may be a thing of the past, our lives have changed for the better and our hearts are full of love as we take care of our little daughter. The days roll into nights and one month disappears before we know it. Tallula is growing and soon she will be ready for boat life!
In this episode, after a long 9 months of waiting, the spud finally decided to come earth side! Welcome to the world our beautiful little daughter Tallula Mae. To say we are over the moon would be an under statement. I am so proud of Bonita enduring this pregnancy abroad, away from friends and family. This is her parents first grandchild and not being able to share this with them has been difficult. She has taken everything in her stride and is already the best mum. What a woman!! I am now lucky to be surrounded by 2 beautiful women every day.
In this episode, we have left Nandji high and dry in the boatyard, patiently waiting our return. Malaysian interstate borders had been shut for weeks and with covid restrictions briefly easing, we took the opportunity to move closer to the hospital while we could. January saw a second wave of covid infections across Malaysia, prompting borders to be closed again, shops shut and a new lockdown to begin. Unable to return to Australia to be with family during this time has been difficult as we are now alone in a foreign city expecting our first child. BUT, together as a family this is just another obstacle to overcome. We are thankful the hospital is close by and we have a fancy home on land to call home for now. One month disappears as we patiently wait to become parents.
In this episode, with Nandji on the hardstand and not ready to be launched, we need to pack her up and move closer to the hospital. Bonita is now 9 months pregnant and the baby could come any day. With the hospital a 3 hour drive away, we move overland to the city of Penang. Due to Australia's tough and expensive restrictions and the fact it being near impossible to get a flight into the the country, we have had to think how and where we are going to have our baby. With great health care in the city of Penang, Malaysia, we decided this would be our place. Away from friends and family and alone in this new city, times can be difficult. Together we can face any obstacle and this is a new challenge for our family to overcome.
