Turning 26 and the best Birthday present EVER

Wednesday, February 12, 2014

Yesterday was my 26th birthday! I have to say, it was one of my best birthdays yet. Dave surprised me by taking the day off and letting me lay in bed until 9am. I mean... 9am! Can every day be my birthday please??

We spent the day at Westfield because the weather was horrendous, definitely the downside to having a birthday in February. But it was lovely. We ate ice cream and cakes and laughed at Alice being a complete little rascal all day. She ended up with more treats than me!

Amazing. I mean... I want them all now!
Here she is dancing away to the music while Dave tries to stop her from running into innocent members of the public!
That faaaace!! NOT impressed at being disturbed for a picture during ice cream eating! 
Another wonderful picture that I couldn't help but post. Find anything good up there Alice? Haha!
She loves the duffin. I mean, who doesn't right?
And possible (definitely) the biggest highlight of my day was attending our first scan. Yep. That's right! Baby number two is due August 19th and we are already smitten. This may explain my absence from the blog these past couple of months. I have been suffering from terrible morning sickness, sleepless nights and headaches. But I am pregnant and I could not be happier.

Now roll on summer!!!

    Pregnancy with a toddler does get easier too. But these days of exhaustion & hanging over the loo with your wee one holding back your hair are all worth it just to see your two babies having their first cuddle together! Looking forward to following your pregnancy now as well.
