Last weekend…..

….. We went to see a lady about alpacas, the animals, the upkeep, the costs etc etc

We met some amazing beasts and their babies!!! William was enthralled!!! And one of the alpacas Seraphima was utterly enamoured with James and kept trying to kiss him!!! She was however a little perplexed by William attached to my front in his sling!!!

   
    
    
   
And a gratuitous shot of cheeky chops and a rare one of me for you guys!!

The amazing reason for my absence!

Well for those of you that don’t follow me on any other social media, here is the little reason for my absence from blogging for the last two months!!

   
    
    
    
   
William was born way back in April….. 10 days late, after I had had to stay in hospital being induced for four days!!!! Upon our arrival at hospital he turned…. Having previously been in perfect position for delivery he swivelled back to back and then decided to come out face first, oh yes and he poohed before he “left the building” so he was born with green hair!!!!

He is gradually getting the hang of sleeping… he most definitely has the hang of feeding having gained 3 pounds in six weeks…. He has started water babies swimming…. He has met family members…. He has visited the farm a lot….. He loves his music, particularly Ed Sheeran and has basically rocked his Dad’s and my world in so many amazing ways!!! 

It’s tough on times, even harder initially when you feel like crap, have stitches on stitches or so it feels like because you can’t sit straight, and you are leaking left right and centre.  Sleep deprivation is a b***h, purple lansinoh cream is a life saver when it feels like he is using broken glass to hack off my nipples, colic is hideous, but ameliorated by an elevated Moses basket/gripe water/carbo veg and Colitwinkles!!! (The last two being homeopathic remedies) 

BUT those smiles!!!!!

That little tigger like hoo hoo hoo laugh…..

The fact I’ve managed to breastfeed!!!!

The hilarious comedy huge burps and nappy rumbling farts!!!!

That baby smell!!!!!

Makes everything worthwhile!!

Baby baby baby!!!!

As I posted weeks ago now….. James and I are expecting!! 

We found out a few weeks ago we are having a little boy!!! 

  
Definitely a boy and picking his nose and laughing about on some of the other pictures too!!!!

 

Catching up….

Phew its been a busy time….

We’ve spent time at the farm sorting and building etc…..

I have started back at school…. So all the usual busy stuff there!!!

I have completed and passed my Level 3 Forest School Leaders Course…..

And then there is the most important news…..

In April next year our little smallholding will have three people on it not two!!!

  
So place your bets people what will come first a finished house or a finished baby!!!!!???!!

Next scan is on Friday!!!
