Woop Woop! Today I had a three-month scan as there is most definitely a little bun in the oven: a sibling for my 2-year-old. We are all very excited. On hearing the news, said 2-year-old (and 2 months) stated, “Where is it? Want to see it? Cut it out”.

In 6 months I might well be cutting it out. I’m not one to share ET style scan pics (each to their own and respect to those who like to) it’s just not for me, plus the bean was shaking its booty so much no picture quite made it until it tired itself out and lay face down for the remainder of the scan. Totally boring pictures, believe me. Instead here is Big Brother all pensive and handsome.

So far, this pregnancy has been a real joy. Unlike my 6 and a half month vomiting stint with Oliver, I’ve not been sick once, with only a bit of nausea on an evening. I’m energised and feel really good and long may it continue.

Here are a few funny things Oliver’s said this week which reaffirms the need to procreate.

1. On being offered a menu by a waiter in an Italian restaurant he looked up at him and loudly stated, “But I can’t read!”

2. On hearing loud dance music pumping from a building site near the park, he turned to me in his sweet posh voice and said, “Mama, shall we dance?”. (Not in front of those dudes son, but later).

3. On seeing a cute little girl in the park today he bustled up all confident in his leather jacket and beanie hat and said, “Shall we kiss and cuddle?”. Early starter and takes after his father with all the ‘shalls and musts’ and the rest. I’m Northern.

4. “Mama, watch, I’m Greek dancing” jumping in the air Zorba-style. A proud day for Papa G.

    Ah wow congratulations hun – sooooo broody its unreal. My friend is having a second baby and has asked her three year old what he would like baby brother or sister to bring him as a present (and he has to choose a special big brother present for baby too). That will their ultimate and ever lasting bond. Something from and to one another 🙂 Just a thought – to keep his enthusiasm going 🙂 xx

    Yaaaaay! Ah, congratulations and long may the feeling good continue for your pregnancy! I’ve just caught up on your week’s posts – really enjoyed reading them and this is marvellous news to end on. I love the kiddie anecdotes, they are so divine and self-confident at this age. Wishing you all luck for the next 6 mths and beyond!

    I can’t believe we spent all weekend chatting about hotdogs and whatnot and you didn’t mention THIS!!!! SO FLIPPING EXCITED FOR YOU (can you tell)? Oh happy day.

    I spent yesterday fawning over my new baby niece and so many little ones seem to be on the way, it’s definitely baby season. And they’ll be the same age gap as my munchkins. Big hugs to you all xoxo

      Thank you sweetie-so wanted to tell you but wanted to wait until the 12 week scan! We are super excited here as is Mr Oliver!!! Congrats on your baby niece! Maybe you could have another too x

    Congratulations! I’d say I’m with you on not displaying the scan but then I’m not sure whether I did in my first-baby-fever phase. It’ll be so exciting for your son once he can feel the baby move! So happy for you.

    • honestmum

      @Circus Queen just one of those things I feel is a little too intimate to share really plus the whole ET thing! Totally respect those who do, it’s subjective isn’t it. Yes can’t wait for the kicks and Oliver’s reaction!
