Baby Love

I was going to start this post by apologising for my lack of posting over the last few months, but that would be predictable and cheesy, right?

As the majority of people who read my blog are friends or family that I have on facebook, instagram etc, you will already be aware of my lack of blogging recently, but to those of you who are far away people who I have never met (if there are any of you...?) I guess I better spill the beans...

My last blog post was on Friday 15th August, the hot weekend we decided to do a bootsale. The whole time we were at the bootsale I felt like crap, I'm not gonna sugar coat it. Not that i'm a drama queen, but I thought I actually might be dying. No, not really, but I did feel like utter rubbish. It was on the Monday morning that I was sat with my Mum, not eating my toast because I felt sick (So unlike me, right?!), that Mum, in her infinite wisdom of motherdom, proposed that I should take a pregnancy test, just in case.

Well, I did. And of course, she was right. I was shocked, Rich was even more shocked. It was a BIG surprise, we weren't planning on extending our brood just yet. Timing was bad, I was feeling rubbish...But...we had somehow managed to fall pregnant, and although it was a shock, this was the next big step in our lives, that we had to deal with.

Don't get me wrong, I was over the moon to be expecting another bundle of joy, but i'm just going to be real with you. When you haven't spent months planning and trying and making the big decision that 'Now' is the right time, when it just kinda happens out of the blue, its....well, it's a bit of a shock, and you have to get over that initial 'OgMyGodImHavingAnotherBabyAndImGoingToGetFatAgainAndOhMyGodAmIReadyForTheNightFeedsAndTheEndlessNappies?!' feeling of panic.

I got over the panic, and of course, started to plan the future with immediate affect, as any woman would do. Rich, he took a little longer to wrap his head around the whole thing. I don't know if I've mentioned it before on here or not, but Rich is the president of a Motorcycle Club, and needs to spend time with his club, and now that Logan is getting older, it's easier for him. Having another baby will mean he will need to be at home more, helping me with the kiddies and things. Any of you that know my husband will know that he HATES surprises. I mean HATE HATES them. he hates surprises so much that he demands to know what he has for birthdays and Christmases because he would rather know than have a surprise. I know, weird right (i'm the complete opposite). So this was a pretty huge surprise to him, and I think he was a bit taken aback for a little while.

When it started to sink in that we would be having another baby, we decided we needed to move. We needed a 3 bedroom house. So we bought a house, and we moved in 2 weeks ago. We got the best house for what we could afford, and yes, its not the perfect dream house in the perfect dream road lined with oak trees, but it has potential, and for us, now, it will do. It needs work doing to it, and we have started slowly, to chip away at the long list of 'Need to Do'.

There are a lot of other things that have happened in the last couple of months since we found out about the baby, but for now, this will do, otherwise I will end up writing the longest blog post in history and there may be a hazard of falling asleep at your computer, and I can't be held responsible for that.

So for now, my lovelies, I will leave you with this picture of baby #2 that is currently wriggling around in my ever expanding tummy.
