Hello gorgeous little one…
With all this spending in preparation for you to arrive, mummy and daddy are giving themselves a little treat each for Christmas! We’ve managed to convince ourselves that both treats (tangibly) are also for you, so they’ll be guilt-free purchases our end.
Mummy’s is a grown-up camera. By the time you read this, digital cameras will have probably been replaced by something new and wonderful – but mummy wants a top of the range starter camera to take gorgeous photos of you, daddy, and the rest of the family. Mummy and daddy take horrendous photos and often look like porkies (even though neither of us really are) with 3 chins each. Right now Daddy takes pictures on his phone (an iPhone – this is the best phone on the market right now) and mummy kind of relies on him to do it. I don’t want to miss a single thing when you are born and want millions of pictures to show your girlfriend/s or boyfriend/s when you’re older. So a little bit of research has shown this to be the bestest camera out there for novices like mummy. Just in case we have a new currency system when you’re born, or you want to laugh at our £ value – it’s going to cost mummy around £200.
Lucky daddy is getting a flash television for the living room. He already has a pretty enormous one, but now he wants an upgrade. He has already upgraded his sound system from a dvd one to a blue-ray one (mummy doesn’t really understand what this means) and now he wants a new television to match. He’s been researching this for ages and mummy will be pleased to get daddy off the internet so she can talk to him again. Daddy has convinced himself that this purchase is due to you coming along – he reckons your arrival means he won’t get as much boy-time down the pub anymore (he only goes there 1 night a week now!) – so he wants a way to spend more cheap evenings in. Mummy is pretending to be moody about this as it’s expensive at £750 – but she doesn’t really mind.
In other news – Aunty Louise came to see us this weekend with Lenny. Lenny was really excited to see your hairy brother Billy and chased him around the house. Mummy felt fine then, but she’s been a bit sicky with you in her tummy ever since. She’s really tired and keeps throwing up. I’m not complaining as I know it’s you trying to get comfortable in there. I haven’t told daddy yet but I’m convinced I can feel you shifting around – it’s like a fluttery sensation. Maybe it’s in mummy’s head as it would be very early, but it definitely feels like you’re partying in there!!!
So on Wednesday it’s first scan time when we’ll get to see you for the first time – mummy will 12 weeks into her term, and we’ll find out exactly how many weeks old you are. A nurse will put some jelly on mummy’s tummy and roll a little plastic thing over our bump. The images from my tummy will then be transmitted onto a screen so we can see you! If there’s two of you in there, this will be the time we find out. It’s a very exciting time and we can’t wait.
So til Wednesday sleep tight and get some rest little one – you’re doing really well and we’re very proud of you for being so well-behaved xx
