happy anniversary to us

Well, here I am blogging again and what better day to start than on our 5th wedding anniversary.. At least it means I have something to write about!!!

5 years ago today was the day we said "I do", it was a beautiful day!! 5 years on 2 units, 1 house (we don't own all these but have lived in 3 places since marriage!!!), a new church and of course 2 beautiful children later and we feel very blessed indeed!!!

We are off out to dinner tonight at the restaurant that is now open at the venue we got married, babysitters are booked (by my husband I might add!) and it's off for a yummy scrummy dinner to reminisce.

In other news my Mum and Jules arrive on Monday! Yay!

Exciting news

Well, I guess I haven't been as good at blogging as I was hoping to be this year but it is only March so I have some time to make that right and I have a fairly good reason...

We are having another baby!!! Baby number two will be arriving in late September! There will be 21 months between our first baby and second baby.

We are very excited but I think I will enjoy it all a bit more when I stop having morning sickness. I forgot how yucky morning sickness was, I guess that happens so you actually have more kids huh!

So when lil 'O' has been having a sleep so has his Mama which hasn't left a whole lot of time for blogging...

I have been up and down at the idea of having two little ones under two - of course we want this little baby so much so that's not the issue, I think just because I have been feeling so tired and sick it makes me start wondering how I will cope with two. I also have been thinking a lot more about how hard it is to have family so far away, my family in England and then SP's family 4 hours away. I have been a littleysad about this over the last month or so, I see Grandma's walking their grand-kids and really wish that was mine or SP's Mum with 'A'.

But I guess we are not doing it by ourselves we have a great God who gives us all we need to get through, and we also have a wonderful new church family around this time so that will be a great support and already is...

We had our first scan a few weeks ago and there was a strong little heartbeat - one heartbeat!!! We go back next week for our 12 weeks scan where hopefully we will see a little bit more of our new little family member!

Anyway I really wanted to share with you on blogger before I mentioned it on Facebook in a one sentence status update.

Please pray that this yucky morning sickness would leave me soon and that this little one might grow safe and healthy in my tummy!!! I can't believe I am on this pregnancy roller-coaster again but I am thrilled and excited to enjoy the ride - once the morning sickness is over that is!

dummy's, teeth and crawling!

Two weeks ago SP and I decided we were going to get rid of 'A's dummy. He only had it for his 2 or 3 day sleeps but he was also only sleeping for 45 mins at each sleep. I thought getting rid of the dummy might mean he slept for longer chunks.. We decided to go 'cold turkey' and it was quite painful for the first week but slowly but surely it took less and less time for him to get to sleep by himself. He has also managed to have several longer sleeps some days BUT some days he also only sleeps for 30 mins which is less than when he had the dummy - GRRRRRR! I have no real issue with using a dummy but I think if it ends up being more of a hindrance than a help then it is time to say adios. We got rid of it at night after England for that very reason, getting rid of it at night was much less painful than in the day... Now I would love to get more consistent sleeps out of my little one and try to resettle him after the 30-45 min naps...

I think one of the reasons why 'A' has been a little bit out of sorts this last week and maybe sleeping less in the day is because of his teeth. At the ripe old age of 9 months he finally got his first tooth, (note: I was 13 months when I got my first tooth, I was practically bold and toothless, and the small amount of hair I did have was this ORANGE, how very sad) it was quite a non-event really other than 'A' drooling like a dog over a juicy bone, BUT then tooth numero 2 has started appear beneath the gum and it seems to be causing our little man some grief - and us for that matter!!!! Mum if you look really really really closely you might be able to see a tooth, it ain't easy trying to take a picture of it!!!

Anyway other than that little (or should I say) big 'A' is doing well. Still nowhere near crawling, he prefers toys and people to come to him, so very lazy.... Maybe one day, hopefully before school he will decide that getting around on your hands and knees or even your feet for that matter has it's perks. getting into cupboards, following Mummy and Daddy wherever they go, eating DVDs - the list is endless really. Gee I hope he doesn't read my blog to get all sorts of naughty ideas!!!!!
