November has well and truly whizzed by for us. It has gone so fast. I don’t even know where to start.
All I know is that it has been a busy month of finishing up work bits, and clearing the house ready for the new baby, making sure I have everything ready for him.
This is going to be our last month of being a family of four. Which is both exciting and quite surreal at the same time. We all look so forward to welcoming our new little boy. I am going into hospital tomorrow to be induced and I cant quite believe that potentially I could have a newborn baby as of tomorrow.
Archie also turned four at the end of this month and he had the most loveliest birthday filled with lots of family time, a perfect cake for him which was of a motorbike, and a lovely party with his close friends from preschool. He is very lucky to have so many lovely friends and family to help hm celebrate his special day. It always makes me so proud watching him blowing out his candles.
We managed to put our Christmas tree and decorations up this weekend which is great because it is one less thing for me to worry about. Our Christmas shopping is also nearly complete which takes such a weight off my shoulders especially as the new baby is due to arrive it is nice to know I haven’t got a huge list of things still to do before Christmas. My list is easy and doable and that feels good.
I know our lives are going to change quite a bit over the next month welcoming a newborn really does make you slow down a lot. At least for me with establishing breastfeeding and making sure the other two feel as included as possible are really important to me.
I am looking so forward to soaking up those newborn cuddles and just keeping my baby close.
I feel like the end of this year has gone by in a heartbeat, I almost want to relish each day of our weekends just because of the fast pace of our lives at the moment. Sophia and Archie are both so excited to meet their new brother and I am very much looking forward to having them come to hospital to meet him. which should be in the next few days. I still find that so surreal to write down and I sill cant quite believe I am going to be gifted another baby I feel so lucky and so grateful and Im wishing this little one an amazing and calm birth. I hope he is ready to meet his crazy and loving family.
Its not always easy capturing the four of us with the camera timer but I managed to capture at least two that were lovely. These photos although not perfect really mean so much to me as they are most probably our last as a family of four before our new baby arrives and I just know as soon as he is here when I look back at our Me and Mine posts it will always feel like someone was missing. We cant wait to meet you little boy.
