Trendy Tuesday - Surprise!

A little deviation this Tuesday, don't worry, I still want you to join in and link up your trendy children - it wouldn't be Tuesday without that!  I just want to blog about something else today..

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!).

  1. Oh wow,Congratulations! I love the star print sleepsuit and Ethan's coat is fab.

    1. Thank you! It's a gorgeous onesie isn't it, and Ethan loves his coat, as do I! x

  2. oh wow big congratulations!! Ethan will make an amazing big brother :) as ever i love all the items but those onsies are lovely :) x x

    1. Thank you - I hope he'll enjoy being a brother. At the moment I don't think he's too impressed with the idea!! xx

  3. Eee!! Congratulations!!! <3 x

  4. Aw, congratulations. When we found out we were expecting again, it was the most stressful but most awesome thing ever. :) My little man is still too young to even realise what's going on, but I know he'll be a great big brother! I just can't believe I'm going to be so outnumbered! I was hoping for a girl to even things up, though I was pretty convinced it would be a boy. Do you have a suspicion what it's going to be?

    1. Thank you! Yes, I can understand those feelings... I'm lucky, Ethan is at preschool now and will start "proper" school a few months after this baby comes. Very lucky! We'll get one on one time which will be nice.

      Well.. I was convinced we were having a girl last time and I admit I was shocked when they handed me a boy! So, we're finding out this time round.. I'm telling myself it's another boy though. I would love a girl, I really would. Loving clothes so much, it'd be lovely to have a girl to dress up.. I love finding things for Ethan but it's so much easier with a girl and there's so much more choice. I know that really that's a very shallow way to feel though.. I'll get what I get I suppose, and even though I don't know what we're having yet, it's already one or the other!!! x

  5. Congratulations! I hope you have been feeling ok, I am sure Ethan will come around to the idea, I found with Alex once my bump was more prominent he seemed to get the idea a bit more and kiss bump etc. All the best!

  6. Fantastic news!! Congratulations Alex, so happy for you xx

  7. Great news, congratulations! I'd say it's a boy! I love the striped and star one-pieces. Greetings from NY!

  8. Lovely news :) I'm going with boy!
    I love the onsies and that blanket is amazing, i may have to invest in one for our new arrival.
    Try not to worry about Ethan too mmuch, we are 2 weeks in with our new baby and Seb hasn't been too bad at all.

  9. CONGRATULATIONS :) so exciting. Sorry not taken part in while, been busy preparing for my arrival. xx
