Pregnancy Update – 17 Weeks

Well I haven’t blogged for a month – since I announced that we were expecting another LP! This last month has flown by, everyone now knows about Belly-Baby and I have started planning maternity leave at work. Realistically I’ll be leaving at the end March and taking my annual leave before starting my maternity leave in mid-May, ready for Belly-Baby’s arrival towards the end of May. I am really looking…

A Little Announcement….

I haven’t blogged in a while. Going back to work and LP breaking her leg didn’t really give me the urge to start writing again. I thought I’d wait for something worth writing about. Well, LP is going to be a Big Sister! Baby number 2 is due on the 26th May with 21 months between them. I am 13 weeks today and know the next 27 weeks will fly…

I fed LP before I left in the morning and made sure Daddy had instructions on everything LP needed through the day, food etc and then I left for the Hen Do. There were five of us including the…

The Path to a Decent Night’s Sleep!

Well, what better to blog about than a sleeping through baby? As you all know, LP has never been very good with long stretches of sleep, preferring to wake at best every 4 hours for food. 3 weeks ago though, that all changed.
