I’ve been meaning to post a layout for the last two days and just have not found the time! I had even told Rochelle to look out for it, sorry Rochelle =)
We had Christmas lunch with Dave’s family today at our place as we won’t be making our usual trek down to Waitomo this year. For some reason I have felt the need to not be too far from home. I wonder why! I’m sure there’s nothing wrong with Te Kuiti hospital, I’d just rather have my own midwife and be in familiar surroundings.
Anyway, today was wonderful especially as my in laws did everything! They picked up a whole lot of food at the supermarket and we had a lovely simple lunch of Ham and other cold meats, salad and buns and Strawberries and Melting moments for desert. We had planned to have a picnic at Cornwall Park but realised the weather was not going to play along when we woke up this morning. But it was nice to be at home anyway, Isabella was given a new ‘big girl’ bike as she has outgrown her smaller one and is now riding without training wheels. Sophia got the most beautiful baby doll. It’s a little boy one and is nice and chubby and soft with a very realistic looking face. She also got a lovely wooden crib to rock him to sleep in. She was very taken with it and as I told my MIL it’s perfect timing!
Oops before I forget again here is the layout! It’s only scan photo’s but it’s amazing how detailed they are these days! This is my little guy at 18 weeks sucking his fingers in the bottom photo. It was an important scan for us, we had been told earlier of some risks of a possibe genetic disorder such as Down’s but after opting not to have an amniocentecis this scan was the only way to get a better indication that everything was ok. At this stage all seems to be just fine but we’ll need to wait until he is born to be 100% certain.
I’ve used bits mostly from this months kit and some from previous kits as well. I love to mix my stash up a bit =)
Enjoy the rest of the weekend everyone and I hope the rest of the lead up to Christmas is not too stressful for you!
