I should probably start this post with a round of apologies… To anyone whose texts, emails or phone calls went unanswered earlier on this year, this is why. Or more to the point, the lost hours and days on the sofa feeling generally rubbish were why – Baby number two is on the way!
Some of you will have already guessed what I was hinting at when the blog posts stalled, I wrote March off as “a funny month” and revealed I had been under the weather, but that was as close as I could get to letting the cat out of the bag, so thank you for quietly humouring me.
The latest addition to our family will be arriving in October, shortly after Theo turns 4 and starts school. I see mums who do a great job of juggling two children close in age, but I didn’t feel that was me, so we took a gamble and held off a little with this one.
Theo is delighted he will be getting a brother or sister and is telling anyone who will listen. His favourite choice of boy’s name (for he won’t entertain that it will be a girl) is “Theo” which errr… wouldn’t be at all confusing!
Now I have made it into the second trimester (I’m 16 weeks on Friday) I’ve been feeling much better health wise, although still prone to the odd afternoon nap if I can manage one! A few people have asked if I’ll be doing pregnancy vlogs and after initially dismissing it, I am now giving it some consideration… They didn’t exist last time around, or at least I didn’t know they existed!
