One Day to go!

Yes it is hard to believe but our family will become a family of 5 in just over 24hrs. I feel like I have been pregnant forever but I can't believe it is tomorrow already. It is exciting to know we will meet our little bundle so soon but I am so nervous at the same time. Everything from the actual procedure to how my little boys will be with my mum and stepdad and their reaction, and to how bub will be post op is all racing through my mind. It is still such a miracle to me that God gives us such a gift in bringing a little one into his world. We pray for safety for her delivery and so many thanks for the bubs and my health so far.

Next post will hopefully be of our beautiful healthy little girl (hopefully a name too lol as we are still a little undecided). Please keep us in your prayers.

Baby Girl (no not arrived yet)

We had a scan of bub yesterday just to check on growth and a few other things. Baby appears to be definately a girl so I can go and wash the cute little dresses I have. She seems to be growing and developing normally. A little chubber though lol. Very round little cheeks and nice meaty lips. I can't wait to meet her in a week and a half (If I last that long as I had a show yesterday morning). Just thought you guys might like a sneak peek. Its a bit of a messy pic as she wasn't in a good position and her little hands kept moving about in the way. I'm sure you will work it out.

If you look towards the centre and to the right you will see a round little nose and then lips below and round little cheek left of her nose just before the shadowing. It is a little tricky sorry.

Cubby Building

My boys (yes all three) are so excited as we scored a cubby house from a demolition site that my stepdad was involved in. It is suppose to be up high like a fort with a huge slide and sandpit underneath but for the sake of mummies nerves and to hopefully incur less injury we are just having it at ground level for now. The boys helped daddy put it together on saturday. It still needs the roof to be put on but it is all colourbond with sharp edges at little Lucs height so we will wait until we can trim it with rubber hosing.

Even little fingers and hands were in on the job. I just love watching the boys imitate their dad and try to do things so seriously. Finlay is such a helper.

I'm not sure what is scarier. Luc hurting himself on the cubby or Luc helping with tools in hand. They both had so much fun and felt so important that they were using daddy's tools and doing big boy jobs.

Of course there is always time for a quick ride in dad's fathers day present - or should I say the boys new toy.

I will post a pic of the cubby once it is complete. We also managed to get an animal pen/cage sort of thing that is quite big. We are planning on converting it to a chicken house and yard. Hopefully should be up and functional in the not too distant future. Can't wait to have chickens and lots of eggs for yummy biccies and cakes.

Sweet Bits

One of my big loves when preparing for a new bub is washing the tiny little clothes and seeing them dry. I did mine about a week and a half ago and of course took pics of a few of the gorgeous little pink things drying (I'm still hoping that they got it right when they said bub was a girl - although a little boy would be just as precious). I just love the smell of lux too. Can't believe it is all so close - now under three weeks. I still have a bit to wash but I thought I would just double check at my scan next week as I haven't taken any tags off and I have kept dockets just in case lol. I just can't wait to hold the tiny little one and meet them for the first time. It's such a precious time.

My Amazing Mum

My wonderful mum has been tirelessly knitting for the last few months to give us a beautiful shawl for our little one. Even painful shoulder surgery couldn't stop her. This is a picture of it after I washed it. It will be treasured always and will surely become a family heirloom. What a beautiful blessing to have a mum like I do.
