Little Pea in the Pod

Sometimes life happens when you're making other plans!

Here is a picture of the newest member of our family. I'm 16 weeks pregnant with baby Number 4. This little one was a lovely surprise. I'm still getting used to the idea of having a baby around again, and baby proofing my home now that we have a place with steep stairs, a fire place, a tiny space for lounge room and two boys with their Lego that seems to find its way into every part of the house. I'm trying to relax, hoping I'll have it all sorted once the little one is here.

I have 3 very excited children who like talking to my tummy, and the odd baby disco consisting my boys flashing torches at my belly and singing out loud to my tummy.

Time is flying by. I'm almost 1/2 way and I'm feeling I have got so much to do and so little time. I was sorting out my kitchen the other day, decluttering and re-evaluating what I have and what I don't need anymore.

I'm still feeling very tired in the evening. It doesn't help when I keep waking up at 3am each morning and having trouble getting back to sleep. I'm over the morning sickness and starting to feel much better.

The little one is due on the 1st August.

I have been on Ravelry checking out the baby knits. The big knitting plans this year are trying to finsh my UFOs and get some baby knits done before lack of sleep and my 'baby brain' kicks in. :)

So precious! Everything will fall into place. Enjoy every little moment. Yay for baby knitting!!! Great way to use up those single skeins and leftover bits. Hugs, wish I were a little closer.

Congratulations. Isn't the image of your baby amazing!
Have you tried sprinkling some lavender oil on yourself when you wake up? That might help you fall back to sleep.
Happy days...

Loving the hands on head, aren't ultrasounds amazing these days? Adorable! I am also hitting the baby knits at the moment. You were the 2nd person in a week that told me you were expecting so I wonder who number 3 will be? Hmmmmm :-)

Oooooo my dear friend, (sorry I haven't been up here before and saw your other lovely posts) but daughter warned me I HAD to go over and see ... Ha, ha, now I know why !!! I love that pea in the pod !
One big sister and two big brothers to-be ... I can imagine they're elated !
(I see it every day with Jaïr's big sister and brother ;-) !!!)

But take it EASY, there will be plenty of time for everything ;-)
Love !
