our ever lovable mischievous, shoe destroying, going through the bins family Dog.

We have had him for almost 1 year and he has given us so much joy.  Admittedly it's not always been plain sailing especially with housebreaking him and training him on his walks, however we have all bonded so well especially Toddler and him that his arrival in the family is firmly cemented.

Happy 2nd Birthday!

Happy Birthday my Dear Daughter.

Yes I am late in posting but not when we celebrated your 2nd Birthday.

On your Birthday Pappa made you a delicious Chocolate Peppermint birthday cake starting at around 6 in the morning so it would be baked for when you woke, whilst I hurriedly huffed and puffed at blowing and arranging Pink Balloons all around the kitchen for you.

When you awoke and stumbled downstairs to greet us with your just out of bed crazy hair and squinty morning eyes, you were so happy to see us and so happy to see your Balloons!  You immediately ran over to the balloons pulling them off the wall and began playing with them.

I gave you your breakfast of Weetabix while Pappa took the dog for a walk, and on his return Pappa dressed you and we sat at the table and you opened your Birthday cards and Presents which you loved doing and were able to do a great deal on your own!  Very impressed :)

We took you to the temple for your Birthday Blessings and made our way to Thomas Land at Drayton Manor Park.

You had such fun!  I was not able to join you on the rides so Pappa sat with you on the Helicopter ride, the Car ride and the Carasole.

Next you ran riot at the indoor soft play, and after enjoyed seeing animals at the Zoo section.

Before we knew it, it was home time. You slept in the car and little at home before your Aunties and Uncles descended all bearing lovely Birthday Presents for you!

We cut your yummy Birthday cake where you LOVED blowing out your Birthday candles and you made Pappa relight them a few times!

After a very long wonderful day you finally got to fall asleep at around 10:30.

Happy Birthday Toddler, we Love you very much

I feel Good

I'm at week 36 having the usual niggley pains that comes with Braxton Hicks and Baby bouncing around on my pelvis bones whilst trying to get into position.

And you know what?
I feel good.

Last night and tonight Hubby was able to take care of Toddler on arrival leaving me to have a soak in the bath, lather myself with luscious body cream, light some candles in the living room and watch some films all on my own.

Ahhhh...Sheer Bliss :)

I feel hopeful about the future, our 5th year Wedding Anniversary is this summer and I've been day dreaming about Hubby romancing me with a lovely meal and then dancing the night away looking oh so glamorous in my prebaby size 8 special emerald green silk dress.

I think about how Toddler and Baby will be the best of friends with each other, playing together, getting into all kinds of mischief and of course fighting with each other.

I'm looking forward to the wonderful summer we are going to have this year with lots of lovely sunshine.

I'm Happy :)
