STOP THE PRESSES....EXTRA EXTRA Read all about it!




Yes I did it! I'm expecting, knocked up, incubating, in the family way, got a bun in the oven, building another tatter...o.k. I've already run out of euphemisms.
Folks, this is why I have been ill the last couple of months so I hope you will forgive the major slow down I have been experiencing.

We are happy to share that we are bringing a baby girl into the world near the end of October early November time frame. I am three months along now and so far me and baby are both healthy.

Here she is just kick'n it...can you see the five little toes on her foot? So cute!
I am still recovering from my weekend at Shuttlebirds, it really took a lot out of me. But it was so fun to share the good news...especially at my age. It looks like this little one will have lots and lots of extended Aunties and Grandmas and Uncles and Grandpas. What a lucky little lass!


....and Picadilly (that's what we are calling her until she is born and we reveal her real name.)

Trimester #2 should see a return of some of your pre-pregnancy energy. And hopefully the end of morning sickness. Feel better and rest. Think pink! Your new lil' snowboarder will be here before two shakes of a puppy-dog's tail.

Such wonderful news! I just want to hug you!

Congratulations, I was ready to explode keeping this secret. It's the best news ever. That's the cutest scan.

We are ALL so excited.

I can't help feeling that Blathnaid had an input in this little bit of magic.

First Girl leprechaun....baby girl.
A new little potter, a new little tatter.

I wonder what this will do to your creativity. Just don't work too hard.

What a fortunate little girl to have such a creative Mum; Picadilly can learn to: tat, throw pots, and OMG

Tattycat said...

Oh, wow! I am so excited for you, DH and little Picadilly! What a wonderful family she will have. I really hate that I have been "absent" so long and just now found out. I wonder if Grandma Lala will have time to get ready..... I echo the previous post how lucky she is to have you for a mum and how many things you can teach her. I'm sure Dad will have his share of things to share with her too. So, so , so happy! Love you, Lala
