Did somebody say Baby?

You may have noticed that it has been a bit quiet around here in the last few weeks, and there are a number of reasons for that. Once again we have embarked on way too many things at once, which is something we tend to do way more often than we should. Although these developments are really exciting, it hasn't left us with much time or energy to do much else. Throw Christmas into the mix and it just gets chaotic.

One of the reasons for me being kind of lazy, lethargic, out of it, exhausted and therefor not really giving Yellow Dandy and my wonderful readers the attention they all deserve, is something that we are VERY EXCITED ABOUT... 


Yep, we decided that we were nearing the desired two year age gap between kiddos and that we needed to get a move on! Bubba #2 is due to arrive on the 25th June 2013.


Right now I am 15 weeks along, and I have been blessed with no morning sickness again for this pregnancy,  I don't know what my deal is but it may have been inherited from my Mum who had no morning sickness in 4 pregnancies. One thing I am feeling this time round is absolutely EXHAUSTED, and of course having a toddler around doesn't help matters in this department, and for some reason day naps have become almost impossible for me, I used to be a pro day napper.

Now that the first trimester is over I feel like I have my head a bit more together and have the energy to think and plan!

I thought I would use this energy to do a silly photo shoot to announce our new family member. These pictures make me laugh! I love my family, we try not to take ourselves too seriously.


Happy New Year everyone, I hope 2013 brings lots of joy and unexpected blessings!!

I'm linking up with Essentially Jess for #IBOT, and head over and check out the new members of the IBOT team, I may just be one of them!!
