About Us

My photo
We are the Pomario Family and we used to live in Johannesburg, South Africa. On the 10 July 2009 at 8.05 our little family grew to 3 when our precious daughter Natalia was born. We were blessed that she had chosen us to be her parents and we were privileged to have her in our lives. We believe she is here to teach us many lessons and give us plenty of joy. We relocated to Australia in April 2011. These are our stories……

We've Been Married 1 Year Today


Hello my gorgeous husband.

Wow. How fast 1 year has flown by....... a year ago today we were stressed out, having planned our wedding for 11 months it was all happening today. Wow. And just 2 days before on the 26th we found out that Natalia was there; just a tiny olive pip and only existing for 7 weeks. Wow exciting. What a whirlwind year it's been. We became an instant family overnight; just the way we wanted it. We are blessed!

Now bring on the year no.2.

Love you stax

OMG


You will never believe it -

Natalia slept through 3 nights in a row; not a peep from her. And I had the best sleep in it feels like forever. It happened on Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday nights. I was too scared to tell anyone in case it broke the spell. But anyway, she didn't sleep through last night (Thursday). I had to get up 3 times between 2.15 and 3.15.......but nevertheless!!! This could be the start of it, I'm being positive. I also bought her a 'teething necklace' which people swear by, but I can not see how it works. Its supposed to calm babies down during the teething process. I don't know if this is what has helped her sleep through so successfully.

What's changed lately you may ask? Well, Natalia has been eating cereal every evening at 18.30 for the last month or so. She now gets 2tsp of cereal mixed with formula and shortly after eating she passes out until her 20.30 bottle and then she's hopefully a goner until the next morning when she wakes up around 4.30 for her next bottle. She also, since this week, gets 2tsp of cereal in the morning around 10.30. My little girl is growing so fast.........

Anyway, hold thumbs that my baby girl sleeps through more and more.

Happy Birthday Granny Bugs!!!


Look at me sitting on my own

mmm, i like Piglet

Mom and me

Cutie Pie


Happy Birthday Mom. Hope you have a nice day and we will see you in 2 sleeps time.

Natalia is giggling more and more these days. Dolly was blowing bubbles yesterday and she thought this was the funniest thing. Dolly also spends afternoons sitting outside in the garden with Natalia (when it's warm) and let's her lie there without her nappy on. It's good to air her bum out and she just loves it.

Here's a video of Natalia giggling this morning. She thinks it hilarious when I drop a pillow next to her on the bed. I think the wind it makes stimulates her.

Solids !


This is interesting......

mmm yummy, can I have another bite please!

Tummy time

Ay, what you looking at?

That's hard work!

Relaxing in my Bumbo

Ooh, what's this?
Natalia went for her vaccinations on Wednesday at the clinic, the last until she's 9 months old. I'm sure she's happy about that - I know I am. I think I need to take a Valium before we go, cause I'm more nervous than she is, but this one went well. She didn't scream as much and she only had a temperature for 1 day. We also weighed her while we were there. She weighs a whopping 7.5kg and is 65cm in length. Our little girl is growing very fast.
Natalia also started eating solids on Wednesday night. Just 1tsp of rice cereal at night so far. At first she pushed it out, but she quite enjoys it now. So this is the start of solids....

I also start work tomorrow, which I have mixed feelings about. Let's see how it goes.
Love

To The Jhb Zoo


Yes Mom, I'm ready to rock 'n roll, and dolly is coming too........ let's get outta here

All comfy with my sun-hat on. What a lot of fun we had. No time to sleep.
The other moms and babies from the Moms & Babes Class


Natalia and I joined 3 other moms and babies this morning for an outing to the Johannesburg Zoo. The zoo is very well kept and I was surprised how clean and spacious the enclosures are; its a 5 star zoo. Natalia had a ball and didn't even fall asleep. She enjoyed herself too much and didn't want to miss out on anything. We spent a good 3 hours there. Walking around the zoo beats walking around the block by far!

Happy 16 Weeks Big Girl


My new favourite thing to do

Passed out

Watching the Curry Cup Final with Dad
My new stroller





Natalia is almost 4 months old and she slept in her big cot last night for the first time in her own bedroom. She has been sleeping in our bedroom since she was born. I was a little nervous as to how it would go, but happily all went well. She cried once at 2.30, I turned her over, put the dummy in her mouth and she slept till 4.45. I have been putting her in her cot in her bedroom during the day for her day naps for the last 2 weeks to get her used to it. I just hope it goes well tonight and every other night to come - hey, wishful thinking..... until teething starts!!!

Natalia also got a new stroller this week, lucky girl. She loves sitting up and hates it when I lie her down. It's like she a little ahead of herself..... it's too early to be sitting, but she loves it. Her neck control is almost there and who knows, maybe she'll be sitting before 6 months.

She has also been sick the last week or two so I have not taken her for her vaccinations which were supposed to be done 2 Wednesdays ago, so she'll be going this Wednesday coming. At the same time I'll also find out what she weighs - would be nice to know. The little munchkin is getting heavy to carry around........
Love and Hugs
