If you follow me on either Instagram, Twitter or my Facebook page then you would have found out last week that we expecting #3! A pregnancy announcement is great to see and I love looking at them, so ours took a few takes to get right!
The first thing you think of is ‘how will announce this?’ And it took me a good while to think about the best way of announcing. Here is our photo if you haven’t already seen it.
Our Instagram & Facebook Announcement:
SURPRISE!! We have a new little bundle coming in November! We are going to be making our family bigger and adding even more love into it ❤ – – – – – #rawchildhood #parentingblog #lifewithkids #worldoflittles #kidsforreal #pixel_kids #littlefierceones #illuminatechildhood #candidchildhood #siblingsproject #thisparentlife #parentinglife #celebratingmotherhoodig #lionessmama #motherslove #mymotherhood #motherhoodintheraw #capturingthemoment #rememberthesedays #cherisheverymoment #littlestoriesofmylife #lifecloseup #developinglife #myfamilyadvertures #pregnancyannouncement #pregnancyphoto #pregnantlife #pregnancy #siblingslove #brothersforlife
So far there is Leo born October 2013, then out pops Mylo in October 2015 and now we have our third little bundle due November 2017! I never initially planned to have small age gaps between my children but now I can’t think of anything better! Yes it is very hard work at times (imagine toilet training a toddler whilst your 2 week old is on the boob); yes, it can get exhausting. Throw in university and my blog too amongst a lot of other things and I was a very very busy lady!
I understand that a third baby doesn’t bring much on the ecstatic side because you’ve already been there and done it twice already, but it is special for us every single time isn’t it.
I have already had comments such as “you need a TV” to which I’ve replied.. “we have one but it isn’t as fun or satisfying”. 1-0 to me right? Do people just assume that anything over 2 children is an accident? I have always known that I wanted a big family as that is what makes me happy. We love the hustle and bustle; and the fact my children form meaningful relationships with each other. I can’t pry Leo and Mylo away from each other these days, where one goes the other follows!
There is also one more thing I wanted to mention. You already know that I have two boys so everyone automatically assumes that I want a little girl. Yes it would be lovely to buy cute dresses and flowery headbands but I would be equally as happy with another boy! I guess it’s just a waiting game for now until we find out the sex but I can already imagine tinges of disappointment coming from certain people if we are expecting another boy,
It has seriously taken me ages to consider this post and I ended up deciding to do a youtube pregnancy announcement video too; which we are super happy with! It’s only a few minutes long so go ahead and give it a quick view. If you really like it make sure to leave me a comment and like too!
Thank you to everyone that has sent us huge congratulations. It has been really lovely reading all your messages following our pregnancy announcement.
I will soon be starting my youtube pregnancy series which will be super fun and interesting I promise!
