First Kicks

I've been feeling Baby Bean kicking now for the last week. It's such a lovely lovely feeling (at this stage, I'll be less impressed towards the end when every boot hurts!) I usually feel Baby of an evening, once the kiddos are in bed and I'm finally relaxing with my feet up. Then the little thing goes mental! I've likened it to star jumps rather than butterfly flutterings!

It's very reassuring though. I've been in danger of forgetting I'm pregnant this time round.With three kids to deal with and entertain already, plus Hubby trying to sort the bathroom out (such a loooong project!), and I'm still working too, it seems that I just need to blink and a whole week has gone by!

And because we already have almost all the required baby stuff in place there's not a whole lot to do in the way of preparation for baby! A bit of room shuffling to make sure we can get the crib up by my side of the bed but that's all. Without having things to "stress" about and fuss over, it's like it's not happening.

It's nice not to feel stressed and panicked at the thought of a new baby coming, but I do feel like I'm missing out on some of the excitement of being pregnant. I'm very much looking forward to the scan on April 1st so that I can go and buy some little blue or little pink things for baby... mainly so that I CAN go and do SOMETHING for the baby.

The down side to being to distracted is missing out on bonding with my bump. I don't want to feel like I've not bonded. This is my LAST pregnancy, I want to make the most of it..

Hopefully, once I've had my scan and I know if I've carrying a Freddie or a Rosie, and I can go on a little shopping trip (even if I only spend £10!) I'll feel more excited, and more bonded.

But for now, I shall sit back and enjoy these little kicks from my Bean reminding me "hey Mummy, I'm in here!"

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know

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.
