We found out this week that we are having another baby girl! I am so excited for Poppy to have a little sister to grow up with. I came from a family of two girls and I’m really happy that Poppy will have one so close in age. The entire pregnancy I was convinced that it was a boy, I bought blue clothes and picked a boy name, but then after watching the ultrasound I was pretty confident that I was looking at a girl (here they don’t tell you at the ultrasound, you have to wait for results a few days later). So now were trying to agree on a name we both like, and I’m excited to make up another little girly nursery. Can’t wait to meet her this August!
I’ve been trying to get more creative with activities for Poppy to do at home. We’ve tried out colouring and painting but getting the pencil or brush on the paper is slightly difficult… I pulled out the playdoh for her this week, and the containers ended up being much more fun than the playdoh itself. What sort of fun things have you done with a 1 year old at home?
This Stokke Tripp Trapp is a new addition to our kitchen, and I love it! Such a good looking and practical high chair. Poppy loves it too, she feels so special being right up at the table with us and finds it so funny stomping her feet the whole time on the feet rest.
Still not an obvious bumb showing itself under my usual baggy tees. If I wear a tight dress it’s definitely there but I am still cruising through the awkward bloated looking phase a bit. None of my pants will button up any longer, and I’m even starting to push it doing the elastic band trick. But one of my favourite spring looks in shorts & sweaters, and with shorts you can get away with not doing them up at all and just rolling down the waist. I always like that relaxed beachy look and I think that it’s also cute when you have a bigger bump resting on top.
Now let’s talk about this beautiful bag that I am madly in love with. Nena & Co carries gorgeous handmade Guatemalan bags in tons of different patterns and sizes. This Lucia carryall is perfect for me because I pretty much only use bags that can double as a diaper bag. There is tons of space inside which is good because I was needing an upgrade now that poppy older and I need to carry more stuff around with me.

For those wondering where the heck my Instagram went, I wish I knew!! I tried to sign in yesterday and it says “This account has been deleted.” :O Not sure if my account was hacked, I also know this can happen to moms who post naked photos of their kids, so I don’t know if it is because I posted this photo of Poppy yesterday. But I didn’t receive any warning email about being reported. So I’m trying to communicate with them to find out what happened, but lets hope I’ll be back soon! Anyone else experienced this?
