A tiny secret

Back in January when I felt sparkly and powerful and made the decision that this year was going to be MY YEAR, I didn't think for a moment that it would be as big and magical as it would be.

For 6 months (technically 24.5 weeks) I have been quietly brewing the second batch of miniTTDER. And we couldn't be more excited to grow our petite famille of three to an even FOUR.
Olive is already the best big sister with helping me and saying things like "when the baby is here, I will sing 'Stay Awake' and play wiv it" and my hormones explode and I have to quickly hide my emotional tears! She also animatedly points out how big my tummy is when I wear dresses and then she strokes it, kisses it and nuzzles in to it and says "I love you baby" (I'm not crying, YOU'RE CRYING!!!).
Bébé number 2 is due in October and I couldn't be happier for an Autumn baby. Staying cosied up indoors for the first few months is all kinds of perfect.

After many discussions and umm-ing and ahh-ings we finally decided that we wouldn't find out the sex of the bébé. It took a fair bit of convincing to Sebastian that we should have another child and if this one is potentially going to be my last then I really want to experience the magic of not knowing. He of course is still to this day desperate to find out! 
I think I feel even more excited that we don't know. Okay we will have to buy some neutral newborn babygrows but whether this little one is a boy or girl they'll still be swaddled in florals and sleeping upon floral bedsheets because that's what we already have! So it really doesn't matter that we don't know.
So 3 more months or so of growing, preparing for change and enjoying my quiet evenings and each moment I can before our next chapter of soggy muslins, cosy home days and all the bébé snuggles.

I also have a serious urge to get some creative moments in before I completely lose myself again due to the lack of alone time ... and of course to gain my golden ticket out of the office once and for all. Time to get inspired and motivated for ALL the good changes that this year can bring me, and embrace the (insert swear word) out of it!
