When we imagined ourselves as parents we all have our "we will do's" and "we wont's." Mr H and I had gathered a fair few "we wont's" over the years, gained from watching other 'imperfect' parents and their devilish offspring's. When Mr H was smacked over the head in a pub by a balloon held by an unruly five year old, we decreed that our child would never be left to run riot around a busy establishment and would be made to sit still. In the supermarket we witnessed toddlers screaming in the trolley, demanding to be freed and vowed our child would be as silent as a mouse. On airplanes, as our seats were kicked or the angelic little mites peered over our seats for the whole ten hour flight, we were determined our little darlings would sit perfect content for the duration.

As of tomorrow I will be 31 weeks pregnant with Baby Boy, which means I now have just over 9 weeks to go. Holy crap! I thought I would write a bit of an update just so I can look back and remember what it feels like to be pregnant, as this will be our last. Note to future self: you do not take to pregnancy very well, don't try it again!

Since Holly was seven months old, we have made reading part of her bedtime routine. John tends to do most of the nights, as he doesn't see her much through the day so this is 'his' time. We get Holly changed for bed and then she has her bottle whilst we read a book to her. Not having had children before, we were not really up on our children's literature, so it has taken a while to build up a few we like.

Today Tara at Sticky Fingers decided to start the Blogger Wedding Album and I decided that I would love to join in. John and I were married in August 2006 on my 23rd birthday and I love looking back on the photos of our special day. So much has happened since then, it's crazy to wonder where the years have gone.

After a pretty terrible week last week (see my post on Survival), last week was a vast improvement, and was topped off with the celebration of John's 30th birthday. After planning his present for a few months, I was very excited to give it to him and was up early on Friday morning to give Holly her breakfast and cook John a birthday breakfast in bed! I think he was quite pleased with his pressie.
