Yes, finally, FINALLY I'm able to share the news. We are expecting a brother or sister for Ethan, due in May 2013. We don't know the sex yet (the onesie I'm "modelling" is one I bought when I was pregnant with Ethan, I've never minded if a boy wears pink or a girl wears blue). We've known for what seems like forever so it's a relief to share the news. We are planning to find out the sex this time (we didn't last time) and I can't wait to find out. It'll be a couple more months before we can find out though. Feel free to take a look at my scan pictures and have a guess!!
I've made a couple of purchases for the new baby though I've restrained myself. After all, we don't know the sex yet and we have loads of stuff from when we had Ethan. I got the gorgeous star print onesie from Boys&Girls - who doesn't love stars! I got the baby a new blanket by Maxomorra from Bebaboo.com because I'm pretty sure that Ethan won't want to share his blankets! It's nice for the baby to have some new things though, stuff that's "just for them". I also got a Gloworm on ebay. Ethan loves his so I want this baby to have one too. This one is an earlier model (2002 I think!) than Ethan's. I don't want them to be too similar.

I suppose I ought to share a few photos of Ethan so he doesn't feel left out (something I'm concerned about since becoming pregnant!!).
No.. we haven't had any snow. One of the garden centres near us does Christmas in a big way and I always take Ethan along several times in the run up to the big day. This year they've outdone themselves with fake snow everywhere and an ice rink (or ice drink as Ethan says). Ethan did a good job skating. He fell backwards and hit his head but we managed to get him back on it again after a few cuddles. You can see him with his "Aunty" Luc (my fantastic friend who I've known for over 23 years!). Doesn't he look cute giving a polar bear a kiss!!

So... there we have it! In a good few months from now we'll have a new little person to show off on Tuesdays! In the meantime, you can enjoy pictures of my growing bump (it's popping out far quicker this time!).
