Baby news - 12 week scan - feel free to skip it!

I know this isn't strictly professional but I feel this is the best place to post this picture.

I am 13 weeks pregnant (tomorrow) I am busting with pride and want to tell the world. I am also aware that many people are struggling to conceive, are overcoming loss, or are just plain bored with other folk’s baby joys so they do not want more gushing status updates or pictures popping up on their social networking walls.

Many people have asked me to post my scan picture on facebook, and although I do want to share it, I didn’t want to ram in down people’s throats, so I though a more suitable forum would be my blog. Lets face it, blogs are online diaries so it seems a suitable platform.

Rambling explanation over, if you have landed here, chances are you chose to, so here comes the good stuff….

I had my 12 week scan at Fairfield hospital in Bury this Monday at 0930. Rob was working so my baby sister Sophie came with, thank cripes she did as I had a proper wobble and blubbed before, during and after. Think I was overwhelmed with everything. The appointment suddenly made it real, after waiting for so long I was finally here, and was thrilled but equally terrified, what if there was nothing there, what if I had invented the whole thing?

Well there was certainly something there, initially dozing, the wee monkey woke up and started kicking it's legs then proceeded to invert up the umbilical cord. Think we have a pole baby!! They were some chunky little thighs so got Mummy's legs. I could have watched it for hours.

Mr H puts it down to is supreme fertility, I just think Mother Nature has been kind to us and that so far the timing and environments have been good. It is still early days and things could go wrong, but we take comfort and assurance that we can get this far.

So, I will be posting the occasional bit of baby news on this blog, under personal and baby tags. If you want to skip them please do, but if you want to check out what we have been up to that is equally cool.

Here is the picture, science is amazing, allowing us to take a sneaky peek inside. I also thing Mother Nature is pretty amazing too, check out what she helped us build.

Wedding invitation arrived


How cute is this? Rob's good friend and former housemate Hamish is marrying Alys and have kindly invited us to share their special day. This invitation is designed by their friend Lucy Palmer.

Excuse the quality of the photo, I used my phone!

I have just taken a sneaky peek at Lucy's jewellery work, if you like this cute design you must visit her website at lucypalmerjewellery.co.uk

Funky little spaceboy - Zoom Zoom

Done and dusted. Here is the final version of the animation for year 2. I love the music, found it on youtube, perfect for my little space boy. The track is called 'Zoom a little zoom' sung by Tom Glazer & Dottie Evans. The track is from Ballads of the age of science by Hy Zaret and Lou Singer.

The 11 second teaser was to show an emotion. I chose excited, don't think I have executed it as well as I'd hoped but I can develop it with time and more practice on Flash.




Final Marks: 70 = First
