Christmas 2011

Christmas was relaxing & fun filled.
It started with a little glass of bubbles....and ended with the wonderful one making everyone bankrupt in a game of Monopoly!

My darling Ma's house looked divine, with twinkling candlelight, old remembered tree decorations, and presents by the fire.
Even Pip had 3 pressies...a beautiful cot blanket, some reindeer boots for next year, and some snugggly baby grows....s/he is so spoilt already!

The Wonderful one is back at work with Ma....I have my feet up as week 27 is proving to be a tough sleep and those silly restless legs are back ;(

I hope you all had an amazing Festive few days

The Bob & The Bump

26 weeks and the Bump is starting to feel big!
Me, Pip & Bob had a few hours on the sofa this afternoon, the Christmas fever is hotting up in our little shop.

Bob is finding the space for his big bum limited!

However we enjoyed a cuddle all the same.

15 Weeks to Go!!

Oh My God....that fact is rocking my world right now...25 weeks has come around so quickly I'm finding it hard to believe that in 15 weeks I will be a Mummy....It really is the strangest feeling!

I am feeling great...tired, but wonderful. The shop is so busy but I find myself totally exhausted by the end of the day, and often get sent home by the wonderful one and my Ma to put my feet up!! I have the best family ;)

The photo above was taken before we went out for dinner at a friends house...I felt amazingly pretty, however I paid for the heels later!

Our friends had just come back from holiday where they picked up these amazingly cool olive picks! I thought it was some form of modern art, until someone used one!

We also have our tree up! It is just divine!

Our last Christmas as 'just us' year we will be looking forward to Pips first Christmas!
As this ever growing bump wiggles, turns and perfects his/her star jump, I cannot help to feel totally in awe of my body...I feel relaxed, calm and thoroughly excited ...
...I can do this.

Pip's First Sinterklaas

The flight was no different with a Pip in my belly thankfully!
It didn't snow.
 We sat in a the most stunning cafe in Haarlem, surrounded by friends and watched the world and all the bikes go was blissful.

Pip got his/her first presents from Sinterklaas, spoilt is the word of the weekend. We have raided HEMA and bought all Pips clothes for the first few months of his/her life...all so fantastic, all so Dutch!!!

My Dutch menu reading is getting much better...the Pip is on full view now.

A busy trip Home for the Wonderful one...many good luck wishes for March & Pip...a gallon of coffee drunk....suitcases full to the brim with baby loveliness...Family and friends enjoyed....Nephews treated to human horse rides, cuddles, and bedtime stories.
Exhausted but.....Mission accomplished!!

Thank you everyone
