I wish I had posted lots in the last month - because lots was/has been happening - but I just haven't had a spare minute! Once everything settles down, I'll post some photos and fill in all the gaps...
For now, just a quick update:
About 21 or 22 weeks pregnant (lol I have to check calendar - can't even remember - that's how busy I've been!) and all going well. Had second ultrasound and baby seems healthy and happy. We didn't find out sex of baby as we wanted another surprise. Everyone is dying to find out though! So the suspense is building I suppose and everyone has an opinion.
My friend Paola got married and it was a beautiful wedding! Also got to catch up with old school friends which was wonderful!
Friends Dom and Cherie welcomed baby Vittoria and she's an absolute cutie!! Haven't had a chance to see her after she came out of hospital but can't wait to see how she's going.
Other friends have not had it so easy, with a diagnosis of bowel cancer rocking their world. It shocked Sam and I but we are confident our friend will recover. Please say a little prayer to help him and his family on the journey ahead.
And finally, we are surrounded by boxes as we prepare to move out and in with my parents! Today is our last day here and that makes me sad. I do love this house and wish we were wealthy enough to stay in it while we build again! Don't think the boys fully understand that they won't be coming back here :( I get emotional and sentimental at the best of times, but this pregnancy has seen me more emotional than usual! Having said that, at the end of the day it is just a house (albeit one filled with thousands of memories) and I'm thankful that I'm leaving it with my family. In light of what our friends are going through, it just seems silly to be emotional about a house. We have our health and each other - and those 2 things are priceless.
So on with the packing - the boys are having a field day with the boxes and anything else they can find! The coming months should be very interesting...
