                                           Wriggle Pip Wriggle from Emma Bakker on Vimeo.

This is mine and Pips first attempt at getting those wonderful belly jiggles caught on camera! It took a lot of practice, as Pip is not only daddy shy, s/he is also camera shy....the minute I gave up and turned the camera off s/he showcased their biggest kick or forward roll :)

This has to be one of the most wonderful things about being 8 months pregnant...I will miss these movement in 4 weeks, but at least I will have a beautiful bouncing baby to giggle with!

Happy Days

Week 35 ~ Bumpiness!

This Girl is feeling good right now!!

We are loving being pregnant...our gorgeous bump is blossoming....and the wriggling Pip is keeping me pulling great faces...s/he is one strong bambino!!

The growth of my bump is amazing me, I can seen it has grown, but these photos confirm it..I wonder how much more it will grow in 5 weeks?

Life is great
I cant wait to meet this wriggling bump

Kicking to the Beat

This was Pip, The wonderful one and I on Sunday. Chilling out in bed while playing Pip some music.
At one point Pip was kicking along to the beat...s/he was liking a little bit of Nina Simone & Elbow.
Watching my belly move is our new hobby... surreal is the word!!

This is one of my favorite photos of Pip so far!

At Last!

At last Pip's room is complete! This Mama can now relax :)

It seems to have taken forever but we are so happy with the results. Me and The Wonderful Dutchman keep popping in to this lovely new room in our house...we walk past and say 'Hello Pips room'...sad I know but it makes us smile.

We only bought the bookcase new, everything else, we had, or is an ebay bargain. There are plenty of charity shop finds too, and my passion for finding wonderful books which are in great condition at car boot sales might have got slightly out of hand but who doesn't love a bedtime story!

 We have plenty of Dutch books too!

The world is yours to discover Little Pip.

Handmade curtains made by me on my 1950's trusty sewing machine...she is a gem and fantastic to use...I think she will be getting plenty of use once this one arrives.

Now all we need is a gorgeous baby to make it perfect.
7 weeks to go...time to pack the hospital bag I think!!

Sleepy Head

Pip's room is starting to take shape. I couldn't resist making his/her bed.

It's getting harder to bend right now...this bump is growing by the day. 
We had a scan yesterday and my darling Ma came along to Pip was her first ever scan, as she never had one. She loved seeing Pip's chubby cheeks and was amazed with what they can do. S/he is measuring a week ahead at 33weeks and weighs around 4lb 4oz!! 

I have to stay I did get a bit teary eyed making Pip's bed all lovely...the thought that a bouncy baby will be snoozing in it is still hard to believe. 

Hopefully next week I will be able to show you the rest of the room...that is if I start to sleep a little better...this Mama is tired of these restless legs and only being able to nap for an hour before has been the worst thing about being pregnant...but the positives outweigh the negative every day. 

Must be time for a bath now!
Happy weekend
