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……

FINALLY


As the image above states, tooth no.1 is on its way. It started making its appearance on Friday 20th already and its still only halfway out ...... how long do they take to be out fully.
Natalia has been taking the pain in her stride, but I think the teething necklace I bought her is definitely helping. She is waking up more during the night, but I don't think we have it that bad - yet anyway.

Rocking & Rolling


Surfs up

Check me out Mom

I must crawl through what?

Oh I love grapes

Well Natalia is doing fantastically this week. She is starting to get into the crawling position, but then flops onto her tummy. She is spending hours on her tummy now, when she used to hate it. She rolls from tummy to back to tummy to back and we sometimes find her on the other side of her play room when not looking. Today we went to Moms & Babes and she rolled to the other side, but didnt want to come back - she has found her freedom! Cute!

And, her teeth are still eluding us... the buggers have still not emerged. She also started eating more complex meals this week, adding chicken, mince and fish to her diet. Mmm she just loves it! I hope to start her on pasta as soon as I can find little pasta shapes...... where do you get them?
Kim is away on business in Cape Town for 2 nights and will be home tomorrow night.... with lots of pressies and goodies I hope. He is not allowed to go away that long without bringing gifts!

Natalia Is 8 Months Old Today!!!






Gee, out little angel is 8 months old today – and still no teeth! I know they’re coming – I’ve never heard of a toothless toddler.

Natalia is growing very fast and now weighs close to 10kg. We are very lucky as she’s been sleeping through just about every night in the last week. She does wake up, but it’s a matter of giving her a bit of water and putting her dummy in. if she wakes again, I turn her over and she sleeps on her tummy till morning. Kim and I have our routine down to pat. I do all the getting up until 4am and he does the rest. Weekends are the best as I get to sleep until 7.30am.

Natalia is also eating a lot more kinds of food:
Veggies – butternut, carrots, gem squash, marrow, patty pans, sweet potato
Fruit – apples, pears, prunes, nectarines, banana, avo, grapes, watermelon,
Cereal and yoghurt
I can’t wait until she is eating what we eat. Preparing her food is a lot of work!

So in just 4 months time, little miss is turning 1! These last 8 months have been the most challenging, exciting, daunting and inexplicably happy months ever in our lives. You can’t expect someone to imagine it if they don’t have children.

Natalia Meets Harlan


Natalia and cuz Harlan

sneaking a ride on Malakai's wheels


Natalia was introduced to her new cousin for the 1st time today, she just loves babies...... She didn't get to interact with him much, but I'm sure they will be playing up a storm in a couple of months time.

Otherwise, Natalia is doing very well. She is much much better and her mystery virus bug seems to be dead! Gee, she really gave us a scare. She still has a lingering ear infection, even after all those antibiotics. We are glad that our little girl is almost 100%.
