The Apron

Just a couple of pics to share of Tilly wearing her new apron that I made for her this week out of a tea towel I bought from Aldis.



Tilly trying to take a photo on my phone of me taking a photo of her lol-


It’s a bit long but it should last her a while so thats ok. I love how it turned out and she loves wearing it and helping me cook. So cute. xx

22 weeks!

I know I’m behind but I just wanted to share a few piccies I took on Easter sunday when we caught up with the family at Lillydale lake for a BBQ.

Here is Tilly and her huge egg that she got from her cousins Amy & Nick-

Don’t worry, she didn’t eat that much of this one (she did happen to sneakily finish off one of Braydon or Tessa’s though 😦

Here are two piccies from the lake of Tilly and Granny-

I am now 22 weeks through the pregnancy and have officially passed halfway. I am feeling pretty good and just suffer from a bit of heartburn and the occasional sore back. Nights are starting to get a little more sleepless as I feel a bit uncomfortable and achy if I sleep in one spot for too long. Here is a photo of my belly last week (21 weeks) –

I have been feeling bubby move a lot more these last two weeks. I have even felt movement from the outside, now just to get Shannon there when bubby is kicking to feel it too. 🙂

We took the side off Matilda’s cot this week. We want to move her into a big bed for her birthday. This will allow us to have bubby in our room in the bassinette until Christmas time then we can put bubs in the cot. That should hopefully be long enough for Matilda to settle into her bed and forget about the cot being hers before bubs gets it. She has done really well so far. The first night she got out of bed at 6:10am but I took her back to bed and she slept til 7:30am. Her day sleep was a little more interesting trying to get her to stay in bed. I only went into her twice though and then she cried for about 2 mins and was asleep (I wasn’t game enough to open the door though to see if she actually stayed on the bed or slept on the folded blanket beside her bed… but she did stay asleep for a little over 1.5 hours so thats great). Last night she got up at 5:45am and I put her back to bed and she woke up at 7:20am for breaky. It’s almost time for her sleep today now so it will be interesting to see how she goes today.

Shannon got up bright and early this morning to head into the city to attend the dawn service for ANZAC day. There were apparently about 40 000 people in attendence this year. He wasn’t able to get any good photos to share as it was too dark to get a clear shot.

I bought Matilda a teatowel yesterday and converted it into a cute little apron for her to wear when she helps me cook now. It turned out great and I am really happy with it. I will take a pic and add it later when I get the camera back. Matilda loves to help me cook but often ends up with stuff all down her front so an apron was just what she needed.

I will be back another time with a photo for you. xxx

We’re Pregnant! (again)

I realised the other day that I hadn’t even officially announced on my blog that we are expecting baby No.2. How slack of me. We found out Christmas day and the morning sickness began at 5 weeks 1 day. I have passed the halfway mark now and am 21 weeks tomorrow. Bubby is due at the end of August (estimated 28th) but will probably arrive early september is my guess. All is going well and bubby is growing and moving around just nicely now. I was quite sick early on but that has eased off a lot now and I only have rare and random attacks of sickness now which is much more manageable.

I first felt bubby move at about 14 and a half weeks but hadn’t felt much since then. I am beginning to feel a lot more now though. We had the 20 weeks scan today and found out that my placenta is actually lining the front of my uterus which is why I haven’t felt bubs a great deal. It was difficult to get any good profile pics of the little one as the baby kept rolling around and laying on it’s tummy. Here are a couple that we did get though –

(the thing above bubs nose is the umbilical cord floating there)

Here is also a photo taken with my big sister Tammie who is due about 3 months ahead of me in May-

Shannon celebrated his 28th birthday earlier this month and I bought him a bass guitar and amp. He is teaching himself how to play and is doing a great job. I will try to get some pics later of his new toy for you to see. Anyhow, I need to go get a few more things done while Matilda is sleeping. Toodles xox
