So begins the start of an exciting story. I decided to start this blog to document our adventures and lifestyle. Expect to see posts and photos of our pregnancy journey, baby related goodness, yoga, food, rollerblading and parenting as Alex and I attempt to mould our very own human into existence. If she is anything like her parents, she’s going to be a teenage mutant ninja wild child and we can’t wait!
As I write this post, she is currently 26 weeks kicking away in my belly (I think she likes the Mango I just ate). When we found out we we’re having a girl, we were elated! I kind of thought it was a boy until 20 weeks but could never settle on a name, we were torn between Kai and Raphael but neither of them felt quite right. ‘Alice’ on the other hand has always felt like a part of me. The name would ring bells in my head as I said it aloud, so maybe I knew all along that she was a she indeed. Its a classic and timeless name that brings fond memories of one of my favourite books and also honours Alex’s Great Grandma.
Alex and myself are expecting our little ninja on May 13th… 14 weeks away (just over 3 months) seems like ages, but the days are starting to fly by and I do keep remembering something we have forgot to buy or prepare for! I’m a firm believer in the power of good thoughts and I know everything will work out by the time she is here.
Watch this space for more updates and thank you for being a part of our life!
