According to the baby books and apps, the littlest member of our family is about 40cms long and weighs the same as a cabbage which is almost 3 pounds.

Preparations for the New Arrival
The nursery furniture has finally arrived, which is kind of a big deal. It’s all still sat in boxes in the garage until we empty the study-cum-dumping ground and get the decorators in but it feels like a relief to know we’ve actually done something now!

Add to that some random pelvis pain, hopefully from running around all weekend after a toddler and nothing more serious, and a baby who thinks dancing on the ceiling of my stomach at 3am is his kind of fun. I feel done in!
I have also begun to start to feel totally unprepared, with nothing really bought no nursery ready or pram ordered I think it’s time to get a wriggle on! Once ive had another nap….
