In the beginning


Hi Bump, or as mummy likes to call you: Pumpkin. By now you are starting to develop into the person you will eventually become. You have grown arms and legs and have little-wiggling fingers and toes. You are starting to wriggle around inside mummy’s tummy, although she cant feel you just yet.

As I write this you are currently 14 weeks and 5 days cooked. It is a snowy 4th of March and we have just endured a terrible bout of heavy snow that has had mummy housebound for the past 3 days.

Last week we went to the hospital and mummy had a scan which showed you growing in her tummy. We now have our very first photo of you to cherish until we get to meet you in person. We are all very excited to meet you and shower you with love.

I still have a lot to learn about being a Daddy but by the time you arrive, I will be much more prepared. Most of the learning will be on the job, though I do hope to read several books before you arrive on how to look after you and keep you safe. There are many things that I am terrible at. Such as predicting movie plots and trying to find my way home from anywhere. But if there’s one thing I can’t fail at, it’s being a Dad.

In the following months to your birth, mummy and I will be preparing for your arrival. Making sure that we have everything we need. We have lots of family and friends who are helping us along the way with the things we need to buy you. Your great-grandma has been knitting little outfits for you for years now and soon they will be put to use.

That is all for now, I hope to write to you with another update soon.

Love, Dad x
