25 week bump

I love my big belly. I love being pregnant. I love feeling this wee baba shuffle about and kick. I love watching my belly twitch and roll around. I love grabbing Marks hand just in time for him to miss the best kicks, but that baby's timing is impeccable when it comes to kicking him on the nose.

Afternoon naps are WONDERFUL!

I find it funny that I forget how big I am and that I get wedged in small spaces, or knock things over when I turn round.

I don't care if I get stretch marks. I don't care that I can't see my feet or shave my legs. I wonder if I'll get a line up my tummy or of my belly button will pop out.

I'm a tad embarrassed that some times when I bend over I make strange noises, or fart, or simply can't get back up again without help.

I'm slightly erked that my knickers have started to pinch and that my bras fail to contain my bust. Mark just finds it funny. And I really wish I didn't get heartburn.

Being at this stage in my pregnancy is great! Less then 2 weeks now until I hit 3rd tri. I have back ache, swollen ankles, and the inevitable labour pains to look forward to.

Oh.... and Squiggle to hold in my arms and love forever. Which makes it all worth while!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…
