Motherhood Moments

Dear Dainty : Welcome To The Fam

Dear Dainty,

You’re here!  You’re here!!!

We’ve been so excited.  We’ve wanted to have you for a long time { since your big sister, Bunty, was 9 months old } and we’ve prayed for you and when we finally found out we were DEFINITELY going to have you { via CVS genetic testing }, we were overjoyed.

Welcome to the fam!

Welcome to the alpha thalaessamia trait fam where we – me, your dad, your big sis and you – all have two abnormal alpha global genes on the same chromosome!  I’ll explain it to you when you’re older but basically, do not follow in my footsteps and marry someone with the same blood genetic disorder otherwise you’ll be in for a lot of heartbreak.

Anyway, you arrived in a different way to your big sister and I must write down all the details before my mummy brain takes over and I forget.

I have described you as ‘little but loud’.  However, you’re not exactly little weighing in at 3.73kg but you’re a little little-r  than your big sister who was 0.1kg heavier { but in all fairness, she baked 9 days longer than you… }

We can already see a lovely sister bond forming between you two.  Every time your big sister comes home, she rushes to see you and she says “Big sister is home now” and kisses you.  It is simply gorgeous.

That said, she said you were smelly yesterday when she kissed you!!  But that’s because you had some dried spit up in the corner of your little pouty mouth haha.

You’re 8 days old today so you’re still sleeping most of the time and I am going to enjoy as many newborn baby snuggles on the couch as I can.

We love you loads and can’t wait to have more precious daily moments with you.  Thank you for joining our fam.

Love your Mama x

Tiny Toddler Friendships

toddler friendships

I get a warm and fuzzy heart-warming feeling when I see my tiny toddler hanging out with her tiny toddler friends.

They don’t even have to talk to each other.  They just glance at each other, make funny faces and noises and then giggle non-stop.

And it’s super duper cute when these little human beings cuddle each other.

Of course, it can all go t*ts up the next minute when they all want the SAME toy so when one cries, the other two will follow suit.

But then, the next minute, they’re BFFs once again!!!  #toddlerlyf

28 Weeks Later

ling out loud pregnancy announcement

28 weeks today and entering my third trimester!!! #notafoodbaby

I’ve been trying to keep this pregnancy a secret on social media { except for the odd Snapchat snippet } so a lot of my friends don’t even know I am pregnant.

It’s a good thing really because I have spared them all from my whingeing { I have severe pelvic girdle pain and I can barely walk some days! } and my TMI stories about vomiting 8 times a day { thankfully this stopped at week 20 }.

Anyway, we are over the moon and so thankful for this ‘coming-soon’ addition to our little fambam.  Exciting times, dirty nappies and sleepless nights await us!  And the newborn snugglessssssssss…!!!!

P.S.  In case you are wondering, Bunty has super red lips in the photo because she just finished drinking beetroot juice and not because she’s wearing my red lipstick haha.
