These past few weeks have been full of milestones for our little miss Allegra which I wanted to share with you! She had her four month check up just over a week ago which consisted of another two injections (where our brave girl barely shed a tear) and of course being measured for height and weight. It turns out we have one big, healthy girl on our hands! Allegra is in the 95th percentile for her weight and 97th for her height! Wowee! This might have something to do with the fact that I had noticed some changes in her behaviour and sleeping patterns over the last week (as well as her eyeballing us when we ate!) so we made the decision to slowly introduce Allegra to her first solids! So yesterday we gave her her first taste of rice cereal mixed with Mumma's milk... and... she loved it! The other big milestone is that for the past four nights Allegra has slept right through the night... for 12 hours straight... yeeeehaaaa is an understatement! And seeing as many of you have given me the thumbs up to share as many photos as I like, here are a few more taken over the last couple of weeks!

Happy bubba = happy Mumma! :)
Allegra, you are our little superstar and we love you beyond words!
My Mum (aka Nanny G) arrives for a 12 day visit this Thursday which we are all really looking forward to... especially as she hasn't seen Allegra since she was 7 1/2 weeks old! Allegra and I will then fly back to Melbourne with her for a few weeks over easter to visit family and friends yippee! Although it's such a bummer that Mr B will be unable to join us due to work committments :( However, it will be a very special visit for us none the less as on of my closest and best friends, Emma (I have blogged about her previously here and here), is due with her first bubba... the day we arrive actually! I am SOOO excited. It is something all best friends dream of isn't it, to raise their children together?! Such a blessing!
Anyway, I should be back with a few posts this week. I hope you had a great weekend! x
