Big News! A new addition coming home this winter!

I have been kind of sparse for a while on the forum and a bit unwell off and on. There is a very good reason for all that! Myself, Joe and Kiwi are all waiting for a new addition, this time of the tiny human variety Baby is actually due on New Yearís Day! So sometime in late December or early January there will be some huge changes for us. We are all very excited! I had the scan the week before last and despite my awful cold/cough Iíve been battling, baby looks perfectly healthy. The gender will be a surprise

Kiwi has been a good boy. He had been extra protective of me and definitely knows something is up! Iím unsure to what level he understands what is going on though. My computer and art stuff is also in the babyís room (itíll have to be a shared space) and Kiwi already spends a lot of time in there with me. Hopefully it will be an easy transition for him. Heís been very curious about the strange ďcageĒ(crib) that has appeared in there and seems pretty offended by this super fat blue front plushie I found Out in public, Kiwi likes kids and hams it up for them, so we are hoping heíll adjust well. My moms amazons were very curious about me as a baby and spent a lot of time in my room, so going to give Kiwi the chance to do the same and I think heíll be fine. He isnít the jealous type so long as heís being included with what weíre doing and is a more hands off bird so I donít think heíll actually get in the way/closer than he should

Wonderful News April. Very exciting, may you both continue to grow in health.



You think you know what love is, and than you have a baby. It's a love like no other.

The first 3 or so months dragged by very slowly indeed! Now that I feel human again, things are going much faster. Thereís a lot to do for a baby, so it passes the time.

Iím ok with either. Iíve heard little boys are more difficult when toddlers but little girls are more difficult when teenagers.

Iím hoping for a nice healthy baby. I already fell so close to it. It moves a lot and itís just a crazy feeling. Iím sure once born, itíll be even more so.
