Exciting announcement time!

picobee scan

So, I guess some of you might have guessed this already, and instagrammers will have seen as well: We’re having another baby! The picobee* is due 25 June. We’re delighted!

This was the life thing I was talking about in my intro to the December break. I went massive really early on this time so it wasn’t really possible to do outfit photos without announcing it, plus I had a pretty shitty first trimester with the morning sickness. I had no energy or motivation to do anything at and it’s always really annoying not to be able to talk about it at the time when you most need people’s sympathy and seats on buses. But I feel all better now, and am looking forward to the second trimester burst of energy!

* we call Milo the microbee (originally microbe), and for some reason we thought that the pico- (gram, metre, second etc) meant 1/1000th of micro. Actually that’s nano, pico is 1/1000000th but by the time we’d worked this out, picobee stuck.

    Congratulations! that is very exciting. Glad you are over the worst of the morning sickness.
    PS I don’t know if it matters to you, but on the scan above your surname is visible…(I know nothing about internet anonymity, but thought I would let you know..)

      Yeah I know, but I’m ok with that, it’s not a secret. If anyone emails me and I email them back they’ll have my name as well.

      • Franca 17 December 2014, 2:37 pm

        and thank you!

          Ah well, it’s alright then. It’s a lovely Scottish name as well 🙂

    Congratulations! Glad to hear that the first trimester nonsense is behind you. Babies are great arent they? And, midsummer – such a good time to have a birthday ;-0 (mine is 28th June, not that I’m biased or anything)

      Thank you! Well, mine is 7 June, it’s the best time. We’re just chuffed we manage to sneak it in before the school holidays – assuming picobee isn’t late of course!

    Congratulations! So very exciting indeed. I did wonder a few months ago, when you wrote on an outfit post something about not feeling or not looking wonderful, but I thought in the pics you looked really glowy! It must have been right in the first few weeks. So excited for you and your lovely family. (I have 4 kids, so it is excitement with full understanding!).

    • Franca 18 December 2014, 2:43 pm

      Haha, I’m not sure I was ever glowy at the beginning. I started feeling sick and tired pretty much the day after I found out! But I’m glad you thought so!

    Congratulations! How wonderful for you and your lovely family. : )
