2 Years.....

It has only been 2 years but we miss him so much! We were so close to our grandad as my mum was a full time carer for him and he lived in the house with Mum and Dad, so we seen him every day!

Mackala doesnt remember him at all now :( like up to about 6mnths ago she use to find a pic of hima nd say who that? But not nay more Dad reckons she has no memory of him now as she was only 16mnths when he passed on...Noah never meet him but has my Grandfathers Middle name. The Cameron in Noah's name is from my Grandad....


My other grandfather is very sick too and going down hill very fast! This is my Dad's Dad. He is in the nursing home and use to be so independent, not now. I havent been back to see him as now he cant remember who anyone including himself is. He has had so many falls and looks really bad. He is now deaf and you have to yell at him. They are saying not long now...He even shakes my dad's hand and gives my mum money! So not Grandad! He keeps saying thanx to every one for every thing that they have done for him. So maybe he knows not much longer either. I know I harsh by not going up to see him but I remember him like I last seen him.

Ok enough sad stuff now.....

Oh what can I say!

Now why I have been tired and shitty and just plain 'sick'! I havent scrapped or sat in my scrap space for like a mnth or more! I havent even wanted to scrap! :-0 I have been falling alseep by like 8.30pm and feeling like I want to sleep all and every arvo!

Yes you have read correctly!

Just have to say!


Well I have to be honest I was so in shock I cried and thought I cant do this...Again! But after sitting down and talking to my beautiful mum and some close good friends I calmed and down, oh and talking to kenny!

If my calculation is correct then yea Im due in mid April and are already nearly 12weeks! OMG only 6mnths left and I have another bubba around!

I dont have my first scan to the 13th Oct they are really busy! Like a 3 week wait!! It must be in the water!! Im pretty nervous for my first scan as I guess everyone is. Just cant wait to see my lil' one and for all this shock to settle in! Does not feel real!! Im not annoucing this to after the 13th oct. I have told 2 people on msn and all of you that read my blog! My mum knows (of course) and havent told the IL's yet, gunna leave that as long as we can as they will have a heart attack! They are older then the normal parents iykwim. I mean they are lovley and great grandparents but yea the shock will be a bit hard on them....

Im already showing looking like Im 6mnths!! LOL and I was looking at merternity(sp?) clothes again! I havent sold any of my baby stuff which now I need again LOL!

Well for birth Im hoping for a VBA2C but I reckon after my last 2 my OB might not let me! I have had very large babies! So my good friend that I told today turned around and said "oh a 15lber??" thanx heaps chick!! Yea Mackala was 10lb and Noah 3 weeks early and only 7lb but was meant to be somewhere up around 11lb!

Im looking at looking after myself, eating healthy and going to try and excerise a little (alot) more! I want a small baby, well time will tell.

My tummy is so itchy and I can feel it stretching! My stretch marks are coming out more....Im finding a have less breath and carrying Noah is becoming a little harder! So maybe another big kid!!

Names, well that we are already fighting about! I like unusual names, so if anyone has any please would like to hear them :) I know its like early but I wanna be prepared with a name..

I reckon Im having a girl, I feel like Im having Mackala all over again! Morning sickness from day one which I thought was me been just 'sick' and having cravings for dim sims again! Im not finding out this time as I have one of each and have all their clothes still so dont care what I have as long as its healthy :) I reckon a surprise is going to kill me but oh well done it with Mackala.

WOW Im going to have 3 under 4!! :-0 This is going to test me!! LOL

Well I will leave it here...Will keep you all informed with what goes on :)
