Oh so good!

I have been obsessed with making these delicious fruity ice drinks lately. They are so quick and easy, and so many variations you can try out to suit your own taste.

The one pictured above is one of my raspberry, watermelon and lemon creations. I have also made pineapple and passion fruit which was just as good.

24 weeks pregnant... a little late.

So I am actually 26 weeks and 4 days pregnant as I write this post, but I really wanted to share a pic from my 24 week photos (courtesy of my Mum). I will try get a current photo in the next few days.

I just really like this photo because Mikayla is in it and is touching my belly. I can't wait till she has a little sister. We tell her all the time that there is a baby in Mummy's tummy and she kisses and hugs it all the time, but I just don't know if she really gets it. She can definitely see my belly growing and points it out all the time. I would love to know what she is thinking.

I often wonder and worry how she will be once the baby is actually here. It has been just the three of us for so long now, and she is so use to getting our full attention. She is such a gentle and caring girl, so I am not worried about her being rough or mean, I just worry that she will take it out on me and make me feel guilty. It will definitely be a learning curve in different ways this time round. I am looking forward to it though and can't wait to hold my baby girl.

I would love to know how you told your children there was another baby on the way, and how they took it once baby was born.
