14/52 – it's not a babycino if it doesn't come with marshmallows!
15/52 – ignoring my attempts to bicarb clean the carpet (FAIL), our adorable son reading a bedtime story to the dog.
As always, linking up with Practising Simplicity.
Random: Officially 21 weeks today and still not feeling very big other than my boobs which have exploded…the men of the world thank you…the Jess’ of the world curse you. I’m refusing the bring out the daggy bras just yet but I’m not having much luck with my normal bras any more.
As I mentioned in the previous post we’re currently playing the name game. Sadly we’re not agreeing on much and I’m getting nervous we’re going to fall back on the name we were tossing around when I was pregnant with Logan that I don’t ‘love’ any more. I’ll just tug on the Hubby’s heart strings after the labour and hopefully get my way hahaha
Thank you for all the well wishes in regards to our new baby daughter on the way! We are all extremely excited and slightly amazed. Whilst I ‘felt’ like I was having a girl I was sure the universe was going to give us another little boy to run rampant with Logan. We’re feeling very lucky and Logan is now asking every day if his baby sister can ‘come out now’.
This blog has definitely fallen to the wayside, not that my life is full of fun adventures I am just exhausted. I’m not sleeping very well and added to the whole pregnancy thing it doesn’t make for a very productive mother let alone blogger. All my energy is going to Logan, myself, the Hubby and our home along with work (one of the Mum’s scored we a little typing at home side gig which is great although all the money will be going to our car boo!).
I’ll try and keep updating about the pregnancy and get around to some bump photos – although I’m definitely not popping yet unless I wear super clingy stuff. But everything else is going out the window. I’m aiming to do Project 52 as well but as with everything else it will get done when it gets done.
Someone explain to me how I’m going to survive when this Little Miss is on the outside!!!???
PS: We are also open to baby girl name suggestions as our girl’s list is just not working for me. My only self-inflicted rules are it cannot be in the top 20 (WA 2013 baby name list), can’t start with L or J and preferably not A due to our last name! See what my poor Hubby has to deal with! Oh and it can’t be an adjective again due to our surname – grrr.
Random: A bit of a slow week.
Random: I promise I will do a big reveal but for the moment I’m keeping it to myself until after a family party. I don’t think any family or friends read my blog but just in case! You’ll all find out over the weekend hopefully!
I also promise some bump photos to come, I’m being so overly slack at the moment please forgive me.
A little bit of an update on life, I feel like I’m very behind the 8 ball with this blog. I may never find my real groove with it but ultimately it’s a record for me and a way of keeping in touch with friends too.
So what has been happening with me away from the keyboard:
We are counting down to Monday morning and hopefully finding out the sex of Peanut/Grumpy. If we don’t this scan I have about 5 more scheduled after so we should at some point! But first we have a 30th birthday party to throw on Saturday so send sunny wishes our way as I really don’t want to host it at our house if it rains!
Random: This time next week we’ll know if we’re having a boy or a girl! Exciting. Bear in mind I’m a week behind with these so I’m actually 18 weeks turning 19 weeks on Thursday.
I can’t remember when the idea of writing a novel first popped into my brain. I know I was writing stories when I was in high school so probably then. I doubt I was that forward thinking in primary school.
Reading has been ingrained in me for as long as I can remember which is why I was always a little worried when Logan seemed to turn his nose up at books. Since moving into his big bed he’s lapping them up though which is both a good and bad thing – the funny thing about being a parent!
I started to re-read Stephen King’s ‘On Writing’ book in the hopes that the desire to write would hit me. Unfortunately it hasn’t, I’m loving the book but I’m just not feeling any motivation. The same can be said for this blog which was sort of my writing outlet. Don’t get me wrong I’m going to keep going with it but forgive me for the lack of regular posts and who knows what will happen when the next baby comes along!
My dream will always to one day have a novel published and I think in this era of e-books it may be a lot easier than what it use to be. Although in saying that I’m not going to be publishing anything that wouldn’t be worth it! I don’t know when this will all come about though, maybe when I’m a lot older or maybe it’s just around the corner. That’s the fun thing about life, you just never know.
