My blog has been silent for the past couple of weeks due to my motivation for everything dropping to zero. Work has been keeping me very busy and I have found that being back on nights has really hit me hard in terms of how I feel. I have been constantly tired and found that I’ve lost all motivation for the things I normally enjoy doing. I have barely touched a book lately and my computer has been collecting dust since we moved into our new house. Maybe the fatigue isn’t all bad though, it has given me a taster for what I am going to be in for when baby finally arrives.
Loads of stuff has happened in the last few weeks that I haven’t talked about; albeit if you follow me on Instagram you have likely seen a lot of the stuff we have been up to. Firstly, Fathers day was an interesting one for me this year, although I am not yet a dad, I did receive a T-shirt and two new books from the bump and we went out for a family carvery to celebrate the day. Also, we had the baby shower the weekend before last and we had such a great day spending time with all our family and friends in our new home. The bump was absolutely spoiled by everyone that came to celebrate with us and I would just like to say a big thank you to everyone that came. Emma and her two best friends put on a great day with lots of games such as guess the mess, pin the dummy on the baby and Guess the flavour of baby food. Everyone was given a slip to put their predictions on baby’s weight, hair colour, personality etc.
As of today, Emma is 32 weeks and 2 days pregnant. Meaning that we have less than 2 months to prepare for our arrival. It feels like we already have mountains of stuff for baby but it turns out there is still so much stuff we need to do and buy. To make the process of making sure we have everything easier, we have used our kitchen notice board to write a giant list which we are now working through. we haven’t, as of yet, managed to tick anything off this list, but hopefully, we can get it all sorted as soon as possible!
Let me know over on Instagram what your last bits of baby shopping are/were and whether or not you managed to get everything in time for your baby’s arrival.
