Morning lovelies, i hope you’re well! It’s the middle of the week already – yay!!
I’m loving weekends at the moment, mainly because i can sleep and sleep. Why, all the sleep you may ask? Well, (*insert dramatic pause*) , soon (ish) myself and The Captain will be welcoming a little person into the world! Yip, i’m 14 weeks pregnant – holy freaking moley!
I’m still getting my head around it all and it’s been a bit of a roller coaster to be honest. Some of you may remember i was in hospital for a week before we left for our holiday. Well, part of the reason they kept me in there for so long was because they were worried about me losing the (then very new) pregnancy and as a precaution they put me onto enormous doses of meds to sort out my then-broken stomach and keep things cool on the Mama front. Well, the holiday was obviously the perfect thing for this little poppet that is growing inside of me because all the scans thus far have shown things to be on track!
Since it’s still early days, not much has really changed in our lives (except i’ve gone up 2 freaking bra sizes!) I’m pretty exhausted and veer between crazy fits of giggles and Medusa-style madness moments – The Captain is a brave soldier indeed! His girls are thrilled at the news and have been too cute – saying good night to the baby and eagerly awaiting any updates – according to the app i downloaded it’s now the size of an orange having graduated from a kumquat to a lime. Part of the reason we’re bashing things down at home and making space is for our impending little arrival which has timed things to be around our wedding anniversary – cute!
So, i’m sure you can imagine, i’ve been having a few baby’s room decor moments. This is what’s currently on file….i love the idea of a grey palette with subtle pops of c olour but if i’m honest with myself, it will be colour, colour, colour all the way
I’m in love with these honeycomb balls – i recently bought some from In Good Company and they’re so beautiful!
PS. If you’re wondering whether this means there’ll be some kidlet stuff on the blog – well, that’s an affirmative. I Want That Kids has been in the pipeline for well over a year but timing and vairous other factors (like time) have prevented it happening. What i’m trying to figure out is whether it needs to be a completely separate platform or whether a post or two a week right here on I Want That is how it needs to work – i’d love any feedback on this question!
PSS. If you’re wondering just what kind of baby is joining our crew – well, the pix above were likely clue enough – yes, it’s a pink baby!
PSSS. Many of you have been patiently waiting to hear who’s won what in my Holiday Giveaway series – i’m busy with sorting out the winners and they’ll be announced in the next couple of days
