a glimmer into the life of a mum who loves fashion, decor and prosecco

i'm nervous and anxious and . . .

With baby #2 on the horizon (7 weeks away) I am simultaneously nervous and excited for the arrival.  

We are starting to tackle some stuff on our "to-do-before-baby-gets-here" list and the most important thing was done last weekend . . . maternity photos!!! Okay not the "most important" but the most fun! 

Our photographer, Jylare, was absolutely awesome.  She is a natural light photographer and WOW does she know how to catch those "moments" . . . . she gave me a sneak peak, take a look . . . (I will post more when I get them)

She is photoshopping that car out!

I am such an organizer and a planner and the "not knowing" kills me.  Not knowing the exact date, not knowing how Emerson will react, not knowing how labor will be (I am going for a VBAC this time), not knowing if the VBAC will be successful, not knowing how we will handle the sleep deprivation again . . . agghhh it is just so hard not to have the control . . . although weirdly enough we are having a "surprise" birth!

I cant decide if I want Emerson to come to the hospital to visit while I am there because I think I will cry my eyes out when she has to leave without her mummy . . . . although I need to give her more credit, she is an amazing little girl with such a wonderfully big heart and she is going to be a wonderful big sister.

We have our "surprise" names chosen (they are a secret!) - we don't know if we are having a boy or girl so we go into it with a name for each . . . we did the same with Emerson's delivery.  I was 100% sure it was a boy and Mr. Hotpants was 100% sure it was a girl and he won!  This time I think it's a boy and Mr. Hotpants does not know either way . . . so we will see. 

Any wagers????


  1. Beautiful pics! I have a feeling that you're going to have another girl. Can't wait to find out. Good luck with everything!

  2. Love that blue dress, you look amazing in it, just beautiful.

  3. Thanks for your nice comments! The dress is H&M!!!


Thank you for your comments, I truly appreciate it! Have a fabulous day. xoxo E
