We are having a...

We are thrilled to officially announce that we are having another BOY!

We both knew in the back of our minds that it was going to be a boy but I think we were maybe secretly excited that it might be a girl.  I felt the slightest pang of wistfulness as the sonographer announced that we were having a boy.  Saying that thought, having another boy is awesome in so many different ways.  We have everything we need already - other than buying a few sheets and muslins - we are more than sorted for clothes and toys etc.  It also means Jack will have a brother to play with and grow up with.  Same sex babies, as one of my friends so aptly put it "Jackpot!".

Jack: 17 months

I am so glad I did my month by month update for the first year with Jack.  I still look at the collage I did and smile.  As I haven't done one in a while I thought I would share a few snaps and a few things I want to remember at this awesome age.

Let him sleep, for when he wakes, he will move mountains.

I love taking photos of Jack while he sleeps.  It is the one time he sits still and he looks so peaceful.
It also means I can take a photo without the blur of him running around like a mad thing!

Naptime to me, when we are at home, is a sacred time.  As soon as he falls asleep - normally in the carrier - I gently put him on the couch and tuck him in with a blanket.  Then I pop the kettle on and either have biscuits, a danish or some toast - depending on what tickles my fancy and what time of day it is.
