In this episode, life with Tallula our daughter has become normal but our life of living in an apartment is far from it! The city of Penang has served its purpose during these difficult times. We have had to endure lockdowns in a small apartment, all whilst being pregnant in a foreign country and now having our daughter abroad. The city of Penang has housed us well and we will always be thankful for what has happened here, but it is time to get out of the city and get back to Nandji!! Let's pack up our lives once again and travel across the country of Malaysia!
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, 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 of Sailing Nandji, we need to head to the hospital for a baby check up. With Nandji on the hard stand and the hospital in Penang a three hour drive away, we need to drive across Malaysia for our check up. To make things more challenging, Malaysia has implemented strict travel restrictions and is on a level of lockdown... With road blocks and police check points to navigate, this is a pregnancy we wont forget!
