 Growing by the minute! We have fallen in love with his cheeky smile. The sweetest thing!
 
I'm sharing some phone pictures from our life lately, scroll down if you want to see.

WIWW - postpartum edition

Getting back in to non maternity clothes was and still is quite a challenge.
None fit right.
Now, being in this situation for the third time I have some a great tip for you : High rise jeans ladies! Love them. Best buy ever! And high rise skirts too!
 
Sorry for the iphone picture, it was an unplanned photo shoot :) I've been MIA for so long and I just used up all my excuses...so here I am. In all my postpartum glory!:)

Skirt: H&M
Boots : Graceland

God is good. Our baby boy is here!

 On 15 of August we meet our baby boy Alex Noah.
 He was born at 10:04 and he weighted 3.480 kg. We are so grateful and filled with  so much joy to finally be able to hold him. He is a perfect little healthy boy! 


 
I had him by Cesarean, I delivered all my three babies by a c-section ( you can read the reason for Cesarean here)  and everything went well and I am now slowly recovering.
We were so blessed to have some wonderful ladies from church cook for us for the first week and a half. It was fantastic not having to worry about cooking.
We love our church!  We now have my sisters in law here helping me with the school runs, as the girls went back to school/preschool.
The girls are so excited about having a baby brother.
Emma prayed for him even before we decided on baby no three.
They love to help mommy and give him kisses and hugs. They are great big sisters.
 


                          I think this must be one of my favourite picture ever! My heart is so full!


                                                                   Our sweet little baby!

 

For this child I prayed; and the LORD has given me my petition which I asked of him.

Letter to my son.

 
 
 
Tomorrow is the big day.
Tomorrow we meet for the very first time.
 Tomorrow I get to hold you.
 
I, your daddy and sisters loved and prayed for you even before God sent you to us.
You are a blessing and a joy !
 
I pray, I don't  take it for granted that you are here with us and that we are privileged, oh so very much so, that you are our child, our son. I can't wait to watch you giggle and grow and just be.
 
As you come into this world I pray you will live, live a full life. Serving courageously your maker, our Lord. That you seek to please Him and not the world.
 
And my son, when you fall, my arms and Gods grace will be right there to pick you up.
He will always be with you and as far as you look to him first and always, you will be in the arms of the one who holds the world in his hands.
 
Your name will be Alex (Defender of men) Noah (Rest, Comfort). 
He already knows so much about you that we now can only wonder about.
 I love you. God loves you more.

small bathroom remodel - inspiration

I gave myself a challenge.
My due date is in a week, but that doesn't seam to stop me. I blame it on the spurt of energy they say you get when you approach your due date.
 
 So, here is the challenge:
 
To make over our in suite bathroom. The girls bathroom will be next on the list, we need some storage there too and some fun artwork.
Now our tiny in suite bathroom, it works as a shower room and  laundry room, and did I mention it is very small? It has a window, so I'm thankful for all the natural light because I get ready for the day in there too.(makeup and hair).
Oh..and to add to the challenge, we live in a rented property...so we are a bit limited in what we can do with the space.
But I'm determined I tell you!
 
I keep gathering inspiration from allover the Internet, magazines and lately my many trips to Ikea...it's just really hard to decide...I blame that on  pregnancy hormones too. :)
So to make a move on it, I decided to share the process with you. So stay close for a before and after blog post and DIY tutorials that I might tackle.
 
Here are some ideas that caught my aye and inspired me.
 
 
1.2.3.
 
 
1.2.
 
 
 
This would be a dream come true! Just imagine all your makeup or body/face care products neatly organised , exactly where you need them, by the sink!
I'm telling you, My Bathrooms gets it! They have some really great designs!
No more spills on the carpet ( we do have a carpet in there), Oh my husband would be overjoyed! :)
 
1.2.
 
1.2.
 
 
 
*I take no responsibility if after this post you are going to decide and redo your own bathroom.
You are welcome!

Our Summer Fun List!

 
 
We have put together a fun Summer List with things to do this Summer for the hole family.
Now, there is a major event happening on the 15 of August in our family.
It's baby Alex Noah 's arrival (that's the name we decided on by the way:) ).
It's a planned Cesarean, so if he doesn't plan on coming sooner then 39 weeks, 15 of August it's going to be his birthday and a big event this Summer.
 
In England Summer Holiday it's really short, only 6 weeks...when I was a kid, growing up in Romania I had three full months of Summer Holiday to enjoy !
So there isn't a lot of time really to fit everything in, but that's our aim, to make the most of our time!
 
So here is our list, I hope you feel inspired and you make your own!
 
Happy Summer everyone!
