January! You came with high expectations a new baby due date, unfortunately you came and went……. with no sign of baby no.3
I feel like January is always a month that drags on for me, saying goodbye to the fun and excitement of Christmas and hello to those tricky Winter months when the rain never seems to stop! This has been a month of waiting waiting, the last month of pregnancy lasts FOREVER!
We were waiting to take this month’s portrait with high hopes of being a family of 5 but we ended up taking an emergency photo in my Dad’s garden on a rare sunny day at the end of the month as a ‘just in case’ but this baby wasn’t coming and saved his entrance until the 1st February, but that’s another story!
This month I am loving getting everything just so in the house ready for the baby, cosy evenings on the sofa with plenty of candles and snoozing, slow weeks of just enjoying the calm before the storm of the new baby, afternoon AND evening naps!
Mr H is loving watching Stickman with both children on his lap after tea, drinking lots of alcohol free beer just in case of a mad hospital dash! Watching Sherlock while Mummy sleeps, scoffing chocolate biscuits! Using our annual pass to visit the zoo and penguins
Little D is loving her little brother starting nursery, holding little F’s hand wherever we go, wearing Paw Patrol pyjamas EVERY night, watching Stickman cuddled on the chair with Daddy and F
Little F is loving starting nursery for one morning a week like an absolute champ, no tears and a bye bye, high fiving everybody, climbing on the dining room chairs, eating billions of raspberries and watching the whole of Stickman over and over and over again!
