a new direction.

Life is a funny old thing. It throws up so many great surprises. It delights me. I can't get enough. Newly married. settling in a new role at work and now a good 14 weeks pregnant! Boy, that feels good to say.

Yup. Little old me and little older Ben have ourselves a honeymoon baby on the way. What joy!! It's something we have wanted for so long now and to be currently nestling baby in belly feel nothing short of a miracle. My belly is starting to pop (much to the dismay of my new op shop jeans) and I have passed the hard sickness stage of the first trimester and moved my grooving body onto stage two. I only occasionally feel light headed in the shower or really tired from growing bodies and brains and stuff.

Anyway, as a result of this news, I wanted to share two things with you. Firstly the awe inspiring ultrasound!

If you look really closely as Baby Brock's arse you can just make out the 'Made in Vietnam' stamp.

And with the ability to be able to share this news, I am also able to share my latest project. A blanket for baby of course. This will be the biggest blanket I have ever made - quite the challenge for me. I am making it single bed size so that during cold nights when I am feeding bubs and I can stay warm, and then when he/she is big enough, they can have it on their first ever bed! You'll notice I have kept the colours very neutral as we wont be finding out the sex of the baby until I have pushed it out over a 36 hour period. make a square. I like this one.

This fabulous red material is a fav. I purchased it from Patchwork On Central Park.

Each square is different. See how great these colours are!!!
Right now? I am going to go home and eat soup and change into trackies that fit and watch TV til my delightful husband comes home. I might even eat some of that smashing apple and blueberry crumble I made last night - geez I'm getting domesticated!

Congratulations! Brilliant news. LOvethe wuilt fabrics, especially the red. Gorgeous.

BTW Apparently Pure Baby is having a big sale at their Collingwood warehouse. They do the best organic cotton sleep suits ever! I'm wishing I had an excuse to go crazy.

The really poor typing is what happens when you have big babies who climb on you when you type ; p

Congratulations to you both! All three of you! Seeing the scan brought it all back, the magic of the first picture.

I felt bad that you read my post about how boring parenthood can be, just at this magical point in your life, so I've dedicated my last post to you because what you're just beginning to experience really is the most beautiful, wonderful and rewarding journey life has to offer. I never write about the mushy bits, but they happen all the time.

I hope you have a happy and healthy pregnancy: it's an incredible thing to go through. Congratulations again! x

Over here from Antonia. I think I might need to come back and visit lots, you are only a little bit more pregnant than I am. (I hit 13 weeks today).
