No, I haven't been writing a childrens' book, although the title of this post sounds like it would make a great kids' story!
I am happy to announce that I am pregnant with my third child, due St Patrick's day (March 17, 2012). So, in honour of this due date, (and because we plan to not find out the sex), I will call the little chap (or chapette) "Paddy".
So far Paddy is already playing games with us and giving us some rather amusing sonogram pictures.
At 8 weeks I put this scan pic on my fridge. Master J (2.5yrs) immediately came in to the kitchen, noticed the picture and pointed at it saying "tiny effelunt! tiny effelunt!" Yes, there was no mistaking it, at 8 weeks, baby muck #3 looked a bit like a baby elephant.
Then a few weeks later I went in for my nucal thickening scan and the poor doctor had to work so hard to get Paddy to stop moving. He had the hiccups and was jumping about like he was using the placenta as a bouncy castle. It would have been hilarious had the scan not been "internal". That's a long time to be "in that position" with your male Obstetrician. :/
Anyway, the scan showed that everything looked alright, and when the doctor went to take a picture, we got this.
No longer an effelunt, Paddy decided to pretend to be a unicorn, or a glee fan, who knows which. At any rate, the picture made me laugh. The "horn" is actually the row of his fingertips.
We also got this one where he looks like a teddy bear that someone needs to sew together.
Well, I apologise for the lack of posts lately. Aside from having visitors and getting my little girl ready for her first week at school, I have been really nauseous and incredibly tired, so I just haven't felt very "create-y" lately.
I'll leave you with a pic from Miss S's first day at Swiss Kindergarten a couple of weeks ago (the first two years of school are called kindergarten here). She is loving it so far, although the new routine is taking a bit of getting used to for both of us!
