The Simple Things

Last Saturday, me and my sister Rach decided to take Elijah to the park. I don't know why I never thought to take him before? I think we forget about the simplest things in life. It was lovely to get out the house into some lovely sunny fresh air! I've finally transferred him from his… Continue reading The Simple Things

2 days to go

I'm two days away from my due date. That'sΒ like 99% through pregnancy. 40 weeks of pregnancy. I'm very heavy and very pregnant.
