Easter / Week 27

Posing with the train she made - sparkles the horse is the driver!
And the train again - with pony as the driver now. She taped all the bowls together and was very proud of herself (her idea!)
Supervising the workers in our backyard - she pulled a chair out to just sit and watch them :)
Easter morning! Bunny pancakes to start the day
Time for the egg hunt
Found it!

Any back here?

Ahhh maybe deep in the grass (Helen i.e. the Easter Bunny, did a great job hiding them out of the sun as it was quite warm out!)


Showing us what she found :)
TWO !!

After 4 years of numerous photos she sure knows how to pose :)

A beautiful sunny day and SO much fun hunting for eggs :)

Back inside opening gifts from Nanna & GrandDad - my first egg cup - exciting!

Back in the kitchen putting wrappers on boiled eggs (I forgot to buy white eggs to dye - oops!)

She was happy with the wrappers and stands Grandma sent though :)

Loving my  new dress too - I'm the Easter Bunny!
She had a blast playing with aunty Helen too!

Trying out the egg cup with one of her boiled eggs
And me - 27 weeks! Today is the start of the third trimester - WOW had time flown!
I forgot to tell the story last week how Genna likes to talk to Jingle through my belly button - like it's a microphone! Quite funny. She gets her mouth right up close - usually to say 'it's time to come out now Jingle.' Ummm no - not yet!

Week 26

Last weekend we went to see GrandDad
And Nanna! (and Genna wanted pictures with both of them with her baby seal)

picture with Dadda too :)

I love this pic :)
Genna brought along a puzzle to do with GrandDad
She enjoyed watching
Helped a bit
And played around a bit :)
But they finally finished it together!
The next day we went out for a lovely lunch in town
While we were packing up the car to head back home Genna set this up - her bed and baby blanket apparently! It was a great visit :)

Back at home she dressed her puppy with headbands, clips, etc (notice the feather headband...) and was VERY proud of herself 
The next morning before school she ran outside to see a huge rainbow with Dadda - exciting
The roses Genna picked from our bushes
Pretty girl, pretty flowers :)
Week 26 - Genna wanted to be in the photos with me this week
Everyone has been commenting that I have 'popped' - I guess so - I just feel huge!
Jingle has been moving a LOT these past 2 weeks. Mostly arching back against my stomach (OMG tight!) and big hard lumps popping out (head? bum?). Still a few kicks a day, but much more shifting. Genna got to be the 'doctor' at my appointment this week - my ob gave her the wand and she got to put it on my belly and 'find' the heartbeat -she had a HUGE smile and was totally thrilled.

We had a cute conversation in the car this week. She was talking about how it was getting dark outside (daylight savings has kicked in). I pointed out to her that the sun was going down, then the moon and stars come out. She said 'When the stars come out I want to come out and make a wish so my dreams will come true' ahhhh so sweet

Week 24

Week 24

We felt/saw Jingle's first 'big' movements last night - we were quite impressed. There was a larger than fist size bump pushing up where we could actually see it without feeling it. Felt hard like a bum or a head, we think it was a bum. It moved from side to side, and then gave some big kicks that you could see through my skin - freaky! 

Birthday celebrations with Dadda - she was thrilled to get to come down in her pjs to open presents with him (i.e. boss him on how to do it) and have cake (she chose vanilla cake and vanilla frosting with blue candles :)

Showing off her new pjs :) Thanks Grandma & Grandpa

I'm done now - time for BOOKS!

This week we went to the 'Baby Proms' - Space Odyssey at the Opera House. It was fantastic as usual. Afterwards we got some gelato -  chocolate for Genna!

We also went to the Castle Hill Show - she chose the Ferris Wheel for a ride - fun and a good view of the whole fair.

She was most thrilled about the ice cream afterwards though :)

This weekend we took a trip to Manly beach too - gosh what a GORGEOUS Autumn day - just amazingly beautiful!
