Oh, Baby 😳

Well, if you haven’t heard it yet via the Instagrams and the folks who assemble there… then I’m a little surprised but it’s totally fine 🤪

First question – Due date?

Come September (9th if we are trying to be specific) of this year, our family is going to grow by a mini person 😬

That’s right, we’re expecting.

That still sounds so weird ^ 🤪😬

As of this moment, I’m 16 weeks along with our visit ever offspring and things have been going good 💁🏻‍♀️

Which leads us to the second question- How I’ve been feeling?

I experienced ONE instance on a Sunday morning while preparing for church, where I suddenly got nauseous and hot and shaky but as soon as it came, it then left, never to happen again.

Thus far 😜

There was also a week or so nearer the beginning where I slept most of the day and felt hungry but absolutely nothing held appeal and opening the fridge invited disgust, so suppers for hubby were, lacking 🙈
I consider those symptoms prettttty minimal compared to things I’ve heard others go through during this stage of life though 😬

Now it’s mainly been hunger and having to eat ASAP 😜
Which doesn’t stray THAT far from my usual I guess 🤓

Next question – Are we finding out the gender?

YES! I’m not a patient person when it comes waiting for a thing that could otherwise be known and neither is Mike, so the decision wasn’t even really a decision, so much as an appointment booking 🤪

Now it’s your turn to answer questions that I have!

I can give as little, or as much detailing about this all, as you want.
I don’t want to overdose you on stories and happenings to do with this ‘situation’ 😜 unless the information is desired.

Do you want to know who we told, when and how?
Do you want to know room plans, LIFE plans?! 🙈

WHAT DO YOU WANT TO KNOW ?! 🤪

Keep in mind that the above question is asked in an ‘only slightly raised volume but mostly nice and happy’ way… I know caps can be confusing 😉

Carpentry And Coupons

Saturday May 20th –

I awoke to a baby’s rustling sounds, something that hasn’t really occurred before 😜

The nephew was picked up and taken upstairs to cuddle for an hour before Grams and Uncle woke up and he decided it was time for food.
Cuddles aren’t a bad thing… but I do wonder what the point is of waking up over an hour before you’re ready to do stuff 😉😋

Breakfast for all was a testing of the chai pudding I’d prepared the night before, as it had to sit overnight to… ‘pudding’.
(Thicken could be the word I was looking for 😋)

It wasn’t half bad!

It’s for sure a different texture but with a couple of tweaks it’s a breakfast I could get used to with some fresh fruit, granola or coconut, since I’m not much of a yoghurt person.
Spencer, Mom and Mike all enjoyed it as well so once I get the tweaking right I’ll probably share the recipe if anyone’s interested😉

Mike left to work on the house, I began blogging and Mom began cookie making while we took turns caring for the miniature human.

The plumbing, electrician and mechanic bro had fixed Mike and my lawn mower, so I headed back to the house with Mike after lunch so I could get the very thick grass cut, before the towns folk became utterly disgusted with us 😜 Continue reading “Carpentry And Coupons”

My First Pomelo And A Vase Of Yellow (ish)

Sunday Oct 30th –

 

 

 

Last Sunday we woke up too late, this Sunday it was too early 🙄

Our neighbour below enjoys his music played loudly and at 6:30 am it was frustrating Mike so he got up and ready to go knock on their door but then decided not to.
Him getting up, woke me up… a whole hour to early 😳😠

The new coffee beans got tested and they were a whole lot better than the others, but not as good as the ones before 😕
I think this ‘finding new beans’ will be a long process ☕️

We left and I got to hold cupcakes for the hour long drive 😋
