Two years ago…


Two years ago last week, on the 29 May 2012 Mummy was going for her 20 week scan. This is what she wrote in her diary –

‘9.30am – Omg I am so excited! will find out shortly if you are my son or my daughter – I can’t wait! Nor can the children – your brother and sisters. I am so looking forward to seeing you :)
I am so happy and content – the weather for the past two weeks has been beautiful – so warm and sunny. I have felt you moving and kicking loads, I love you so much. I wake up to you waking up too! I feel so well, healthy and happy – the best I’ve ever felt :)

We’ve had days on the beach, enjoying the sunshine, next week is half term – the Diamond Jubilee bank holidays, I hope the weather is lovely and I’m looking forward to time with the children, Luke went to St Davids yesterday, Lea’s off to Llangranog tomorrow to Friday, and MeeMee’s in the middle of her GCSE’s. She officially finishes school this Thursday – her prom is on Friday and her exams finish on 20 June. I wrote this in M&S cafe, having a cuppa before my scan. Got to go now, ‘See’ you soon! Love you xxxx

My son <3 <3 <3
My beautiful baby son. How wonderful, how thrilled I am. Another darling baby boy. I am so blessed, you are so active now – daddy, your brother and sisters have felt you kicking in the last week. You’re very wriggly! I can’t believe seeing your little heart beating – and seeing the four chambers of the heart. Amazing.

I wish all the love and happiness in the world for you. I’m watching the Diamond Jubilee Concert at home – you’re loving the music! 2012 – such a big year. Everyone trying to be positive and celebrating our country and The Queen. It’s a very proud weekend. And I have the best gift of all. You.
I love you, my son, my precious little boy

  2. I often wish that I had kept a dairy when expecting, but I had terrible pregnancies and would have just moaned and moaned!

  3. What a beautiful post, it actually brought a lump to my throat! You sound like such a fantastic mother – all your children are very lucky :-)

  4. Awww – I wish I had blogged when I was having my babies, only photos now! TOP TIP – scan in your ultrasound pics and save them as they fade!!

  5. Lovely! I so wish I had done this. Oh well too late now, not having any more, that’s for sure!

  18. Ah I got goose bumps all over reading this! What a special memory to keep. Precious moments.
