Due date been and gone ...

And still no sign of Knuckles. However my mum has arrived and spent the past week spoiling us. We are enjoying having her around and don't want to let her go. On her first morning, my youngest sat wrapped in a blanket watching her sleep, waiting for her to wake. He then brought out all his 'friends' to meet his Nan. I miss living near family for this very reason.
A few crafty girls came over to meet my mum and get creative together. What a morning tea we enjoyed too! Banana cake with cream cheese icing, homemade cookies and lots of bevies. Hint: Don't try teaching at 40 weeks pregnant! I'm sure I was the most impatient and grumpiest tutor ever. Still we got some things made and picked up new skills along the way.
Here the girls proudly show their handiwork.
I will keep you posted on the baby news front. Until then, back to spending time with family and enjoying the warmer weather.

You are lucky your mum could come over and stay, I miss not having mine live close.
