This past week

In a week, we found out that we’re having another boy.  I will be the mum of two boys, with a 15 month age gap.  I foresee fights and squabbling in the future.

My sister had her baby.  Two weeks early but beautiful.  Harry. Three boys in the family in 15 months.  It’s definitely a bit of a culture shock when it was just my sister and I growing up.

And then my boy has suddenly discovered he can crawl, say mama (normally when food is around – so I’m associated with food.  Good or bad thing?!), stand by himself, take a few steps by himself and say cat.  How did that happen!??

I’ve also finalised my return to work date and organised Theodore’s introduction sessions at daycare.  

What a crazy week!!!!


Approaching one year

Theodore is 6 or so weeks away from turning one.  I can’t believe how fast the time has gone, and how much development he has done in the last month.  It’s quite frankly amazing.

We’re also half way through pregnancy with baby 2.  Which has also gone crazily fast.

I’m now starting to worry how I will cope with 2 babies with a 15 month age gap.  I almost wish I could have more time with just me and my boy. 

And worrying about the fact that hubby does not want to give up his own social time now – let alone when we have two.  I hope baby 2 is relatively easy else I am really going to struggle.

I’ll be going back to work for about 6 weeks between maternity leave which is laughable but I definitely could do with the money.  I’m wondering if I’ll be able to afford to take a year off with baby 2 but we’ll have to see how our year goes as we definitely need to move house.

This little house is most definitely full – with 2 adults, 1 baby and a cat.
