Friends, we have exciting news!
Another precious little person will be joining our family this year! At the moment, he or she is busy growing and developing - hard and important work! - to be ready for his or her arrival date in August.
Elliot in particular is very excited and is often talking about "your baby growing in your tummy, Mummy" - no matter how many times I tell him it's OUR baby! Rosie is adamant that it's a "girl baby," so we'll have to see about that... And of course Tristan has no idea. :)
It's been a very interesting time, as we are beginning to let the news out wider and wider amongst our circles of friends and family. A lot of our friends and family have become excited with us. However, despite the joy in my voice as I share the lovely announcement, a surprising number of people's reactions have been, "Oh no!" Whatever the reason, and I think it is from genuine love and concern for my emotional well-being, I find it leaves a sour taste in my mouth. Certainly it is deflating.
Nonetheless, we are very content and looking forward to meeting this lovely little gift in 6 months time! You can be sure that as soon as I get a more pronounced 'bump' - rather than the exxagerated-food-baby stage I'm in right now - I will join back in with Wardrobe Wednesday, maternity style!
