While I'm still waiting for that famed second trimester burst of energy to hit me, I am VERY pleased to report that the nausea has gone! Thanks for all of you who wished it away for me.
And yes, we've told Romily. Of course, she doesn't quite get it, but understands it quite well for someone who's only two and a half! She came along to the scan and I'm talking to her about what's going on. She knows that 'there's a baby in mummy's tummy - just like Romily was in mummy's tummy'. I reckon that's pretty good. And she just loves babies, so I think she'll be a great little helper to me when bub #2 makes its entrance.
She is still such a little doll. Really interested in books and 'reading' right now. So a big thanks to Doodlebug Gail and her daughter for sending Romily four Dora the Explorer books all the way from Canada! Romily loves the books, and they are learn-to-read books with mini-pictures embedded in the text. Rom is cottoning on to this idea quite well...she has also just about memorised a couple of them already! Thanks Gail :)
I finally downloaded my photos from Christmas and from our holiday. Here's a photo of my sister-in-law with the messenger-style bag I made for her. She really liked it. She loves blues, and she was impressed that I'd made it myself! It's another one from the Flea Market Bag pattern I blogged about here and here.
More holiday and crafty photos to follow soon!
