Me and Mine - May


I'm so pleased to be able to finally share our journey towards becoming a family of four with you guys and more so that by the last month of this year our Me and Mine photo will include a new addition! There are actually two new babies on the way from the rest of the Me and Mine team which makes me feel quite emotional (doesn't take much these days!) I love feeling like I'm sharing these experiences with this lovely community.

This month I've mainly been very emotional, tired and still quite sick so it's made for an interesting one. There have been a few days that I've felt well enough to do a bit more and we took these pics in Castle Park in Bristol on one of the most lovely sunny days. We ended up at a new gelato shop and I discovered that my new obsession is coconut gelato!

Wilf has been absolutely fantastic since finding out I have a baby in my tummy, I wasn't too sure how aware he would be of the situation but he is very excited and interested. He asks me questions every day about the baby and we talk about what things he'll be able to do with it at different ages, he was so happy when he learnt he would be able to share his favourite books and with him/her and I fear it made me cry (again!). He is going to be the best big brother.

I've been going to bed super early (just after Wilf) and then he has taken to coming into our bed around 9pm and cuddling up to me. It's funny because he is usually very happy to sleep in his own bed but I'm cherishing it as I know these are the last few months of just us two, there isn't many things I love more than him cuddling up to me in his sleep.


I think the scan made the baby become suddenly real for all of us, where as before we tending not to talk about it much 'just in case'. Our friends would try and engage us into conversations about what we could expect and Tom would say 'we're not really going to think about it until the all clear'. I think it was our way of protecting our emotions incase we found our self experiencing a loss again.

Now though we've all really started to get excited! We've been making grand plans for the house that we need to do before the baby gets here (how is it people always do things to their houses before the birth of a child? We ripped out our kitchen two weeks before Wilf's arrival!). I'm also feeling very nesty which is something that never happened to me in my pregnancy with Wilf (much to Tom's disappointment the house continued to be a mess ;)). So some spring cleaning and rearranging has been taking place when I've found I've had a burst of energy.

I'm so excited to take this ride with Tom and become parents to two! Roll on December ;)

This month I'm sending you over to the lovely Alex who is going to meet her second little boy very soon!

Hahaha, I love that one of Tom pointing at your belly, as if to say "don't forget there are four of us in this photo". I think when you're expecting it's even nicer to be capturing family photos, because life as a three for you (and as a four for us) will feel like it was another lifetime soon enough, and I'll really treasure all the photos we have. Plus those first family portraits with "the new line-up" will be so exciting. x
P.S. Coconut gelato sounds amazing... I need to find some!

Oh it is so wonderful to have the family photos tracking as your family grows! We were in the same position last year, watching the bump grow in every month's picture until finally Pip was there too! And yay for coconut gelato, it's one of my favourites - alas as the small Pip still has me dairy free!!

Such exciting news! There's definitely something in the water with the Me & Mine linky. Not that I'm going to swim in it! Beautiful photos.

Gorgeous photos! I know what you mean about being a little hesitant to speak about having another baby until the scan, I was the exact same, especially more so this time around. xx

Gorgeous photos lovely and I can't wait to follow your pregnancy wardrobe haha! Enjoy these last few months as a family of three because as soon as the baby comes it will feel like you have always been a four- which is also an amazing feeling, they just slot in and it was like they were always there. Wilf sounds like he is going to be a great big brother! x

Lovely photos, I love the yellow of your top too, it's so bright and summery. How exciting that you will soon be a foursome; I can remember when Eli arrived it just seemed like the most natural fit in the world, even if Meg did keep asking when he was going back to the shop haha! #meandmine

So pleased for you and it's lovely to cherish those months as a family of three too before an extra one comes into the mix! My son was four when my little girl came along, its a brilliant age gap. Love joining in with Me and Mine! x

Hoorah! So thrilled you can share your lovely news, it's like having the biggest nct group in the world! Enjoy all those cuddles, it all goes far too fast for my liking, I feel like I've blinked and Ollie is 4 next week! I can vividly remember those newborn snuggles and listing to sammy singing twinkle twinkle to him, holding him with pudgy arms. Take in every second, you are in for the most magical ride xx
