Oh my goodness, I cannot believe it has been over two months since the last post. I guess that is typical Ben and Alison style of losing track and being generally, pretty awful staying on target!
SO much has happened in the past few weeks that I am thinking this will be an uber long post. Actually, I may break up the updates over a few posts just to make it easier.
We are 35 weeks and 5 days pregnant today which means there is exactly 30 days to go until our due date of the 26th April 2014. However, I am fingers crossed, hoping he may decide to make an earlier appearance. Partly due to discomfit and generally being over it all, and partly due to impatience and desire to finally meet and snuggle him!
From where I left off, we had a pretty successful trip to Rockhampton and it was great to catch up with Matt and Liz over Australia Day. The heat wasn't an issue at all, as it was cool and windy the whole time we were there, which actually made for a very pleasant stay.
On the 1st Feb we hosted our baby shower at our home, and the weather for that day was a completely different story. It was stinking hot and muggy, which put a bit on a dampener on the day, but we got to catch up with some pretty excellent people and celebrate our Bubba, so all in all it wasn't too bad. I didn't get a chance to get many photos, which I regret, but I have included the few that I do have below.
We ended up seriously over catering, as I think the heat depressed people's appetites. Ben and I were eating sandwiches and cupcakes for days afterwards... which wasn't actually that bad, lol!
