About

We chose the name Cayce (a variant of the unisex name Casey and pronounced ‘Kay – See’) because he was born on St Patricks Day (17th March) and it is an Irish Gaelic name – and because we couldn’t decide on any other names, so this was it! The name means observant, alert and vigorous and he’s already showing signs of these traits! Folarin, Cayce’s second name, is of Nigerian origin from the Yoruba language and means walk with glory.

Date scan at 7 weeks! You can’t really see anything but it’s absolutely amazing there is a little human being growing in there – cocooned within the womb!

At 18 weeks and 5 days, this was the second scan in my pregnancy and is called the Morphology scan – here you can see a little more of baby Cayce as he’s developing in the womb. In this scan you can find out the sex of your baby but we chose not to, preferring to have a surprise!

Leaving the hospital with Cayce – the midwives and other hospital staff had been so supportive and it was such a wonderful experience – the long nine-month wait, all the anxiety and pain was all worth it for this amazing little fella!

At just nine days old we took Cayce to The Photo Studio in Glebe to take some professional photos of him whilst he was still in the newborn stage – I’m so glad we did this because at six weeks his skin changed when he developed a rash from all the hormones going through his little body.

And some family portraits…
It’s amazing what professional photos can do!

From the Wise side of the family – Cayce is yet to meet his other Grandma in London.

The first couple months at home
Cayce is growing very quickly! We are noticing new improvements each week and sometimes daily in his awareness of the things around him; he’s smiling and starting to interact with us, which is adorable – such memorable times. He’s a big boy too – at 8 weeks he already weighs over 6kg!

Goodbye Sydney – Hello Mansfield
At the start of August we moved from Sydney to Mansfield (also called the ‘High Country’) in Victoria – a picturesque town and the gateway to Mount Buller. We bought a vineyard just on the outskirts of the town centre.
Here’s a photo of the view we have from our property:
