Getting ready for a baby...

Well, with only 4 and a bit weeks to go, we are sneaking ever so closer to having a baby in our house! I still can't believe it's actually really happening. Simon and I are going to be parents! Eek! I know Simon is going to be a great and wonderful father, but I'm sure it's only natural to have doubts about our own abilities, isn't it? I just hope I measure up to the task! If I can be half as good a mum as my own mother - I'll be very content and happy!

A small baby blessing was held at our home a few weeks ago to celebrate out little possum. A few close friends and family members came to eat and drink, and then pray over Simon, myself and our baby. It was a wonderful and happy little occasion, and a delight to have possum blessed.
I had a fabulous time decorating the house in our "Cute as a Button" theme, and styling the food to match. It was a lot of work, but oh, so worth it!

My lovely and talented sister in law also induldged us with some baby bump photos to mark our pregnancy. As you can tell - we are so not 'model/posing' people! But it was great fun, and we now have some lovely photos to remember our baby journey.

And isn't it so nice to be able to wash baby clothes!? The best kind of washing, by far!

Good luck on your new journey. The best journey ever in my little humble opinion:)

I LOVED washing all of Thumper's baby clothes, and a year on, still delight in doing Alyssa's washing :)

You are going to be a wonderful mum, Sam - possum is a very lucky little bubba! xox

Just stopping by as I read your review of the Pfaff 4.0. (Mine is still in the box I got it this week)

I see you are having a little one. COngrats! And speaking as a mom of a 23 yr old and a 27 yr old, you take it one day at a time and do your best each day. One moment and one challenge and one day at a time. You will be a great mom. :D
