Expecting……April 2016


2016 is going to be a big year for us because we are expecting in April 2016.

We just told Elin over the New Year holiday and she has been so excited ever since. She was even more excited to find out its a boy because she is dying for a brother.


She already talks about the baby constantly and asks me all the time if he is coming out now and when I tell her he is not, she wants to know why he can’t just come out now.

She has been loving shopping with us for baby furniture and clothes. The nursery which was a home office before is now completely empty and ready for outfitting and decorating. I am now 25 weeks so we still  have plenty of time to get it ready although I would love to finish it sooner rather than later.


She is so interested in all the things she will be able to do to help with the baby and she is taking her responsibilities seriously.
