My little man turned 8 months this week! What an amazing journey it’s been getting to this stage!
I definitely have to say motherhood has been a lot easier better this second time around – breastfeeding for one was smoother, weaning is going better and I guess I’m just more relaxed as a mother. I pray I haven’t jinxed things now!
Junior is still a serious little man, chilled out and not fussed at all, except at night or when he isn’t getting what he wants. We still have to work for the smiles but when they come it melts my heart every time!
I had given birth by this time so it’s quite strange to find I’m still pregnant at 40 + 5 weeks. All things considered, it’s still ‘early’ days as I’ve still got at least 5 – 7 days to go before I can get induced but it really does seem odd as I always thought the second and subsequent babies would come earlier and quicker – I stand corrected!
Yippeeeee! Now, I can officially say we’re ready for this baby 🙂
All my bags are packed and I’m ready to go… but I don’t feel like this baby is rather to make an appearance though!
Plus it seems like I still haven’t dropped based on my picture, although I looked about the same thing last time, only bigger! My parents were also in town already this time with Aj at 39 weeks! So we decided to mix it up this time and invite my mother-in-law over instead! It should be fun, especially as she’ll be here for a few months! Another person for Aj to harass with her chatter – yes, we’re getting to that stage with the little madam, she’s absolutely hilarious!
Thank You Lord for another month, and what a special month it is/will be! I can officially say I’m due this month! How exciting is that 🙂
Among being the birth month for our unborn child, February is also the month I was born and our wedding anniversary month! How blessed is that? So much to be thankful for… No, we didn’t plan to have a child this month either, it just happened… So this month will always have a special place in my heart!
This pregnancy is definitely shaping out to be the first of many isn’t it! First it was my surprise baby shower which I didn’t get with AJ and now it’s a Maternity photo shoot which I also didn’t have with AJ! We did this earlier in the year when I was about 35 weeks and it was COLD so had to stick with an indoor shoot.
Now this is something I had mixed feelings about for a number of reasons…
This second pregnancy of mine is turning into the first of many! For one thing, I had my first every Baby Shower over the weekend! It’s one of those things I didn’t have the first time as we were in a new town with most of our friends back in Newcastle so didn’t do anything and the same for this second time as well! We’ve been living in North Wales for just about 2 years so once again I really wasn’t planning anything but surprise surprise it happened, and it was a lovely surprise…
