Welcome to Olivia

The Land of Oz grew a little bit brighter last week on the birth day of Olivia Daria, first child of Karolina and Janusz.

Birth Day            7th July 2014
Time:                  9.50am
Weight:               3.29kg
Length:                51cm

Janusz is the Production Manager at my work. I've known him now for 7 years and in that time he has worked extremely hard to create a life for himself in Australia, having immigrated from Poland. That life now includes becoming a Australian Citizen (not an easy thing to do), a beautiful new Polish wife, and a daughter. Olivia is being an extremely good baby and Karolina is a natural Mum.  It must be very hard for her not to have her family around her and i hope that she feels she can reach out if she needs help or just a friend.

I've got a soft spot for Janusz and have spent years encouraging him to find a wife and settle down.  I think i just didn't want him to be lonely.  I cant imagine what its like to live in another country with only a few friends. Well, he will be lonely no more and its lovely to watch him become a Daddy and to see him soften (though he wont admit to it).  He has very strong views on how a baby/child will be raised and im quietly watching (with much amusement) to see Olivia wrap him around her little fingers.  I see a princess in Daddy's future.

I hope i got this poem right and that I'm not saying something completely stupid.

Trochę zielony 

Ona jest trochę słońca,
Ona jest uśmiech na światło swoje dni,
Ona kradnie serce i utrzymać go z jej ciepłych ujmujący sposób,
Ona jest Twój cenny córeczka,
O słodkości z góry Kto wypełni swoje lata ze śmiechu i wasze życie z partii miłości

A LITTLE BIT OF SUNSHINE      (that was born in Sunshine, how apt)

She's a little bit of sunshine,
She's a smile to light your days,
She will steal your heart and keep it with her warm endearing ways,
She's your precious little daughter, With a sweetness from above
Who will fill your years with laughter and your lives with lots of love

So Welcome, little Olivia, a new little Aussie (with a twist of Polish).  

Thanks For Visiting Living In The Land Of Oz


  1. What a beautiful baby and what a lovely name. Thanks for sharing that, Lynda.

    1. Originally it was Oliwia but they obviously discussed (and i pointed out) that the poor girl would have to spell her name her entire life and most people would put the V anyway. W in polish sounds like V.

    2. sensible suggestion - beautiful baby!
