The doctors realised Mummy was always so tired because she was terribly deficient in Iron - so Mummy had an iron infusion & suddenly had all the energy in the world!

Almost 8months pregnant, with a heatwave hitting 38 Deg - Mummy needed to cool down in the lake! Luckily it is only a few minutes walk from home :)

We can't wait for next summer when we get to bring Mini Habibi to the lake with us - our new favourite place.
The nursery is almost ready for you little one. Mummy designed a few Winnie-the-Pooh poster frames & Grossmuetti's knitted a beautiful toy and blanket for you.

Sometimes all you need is a little splash of colour!
Your outer world is a reflection of your inner world.
It's Week 34: Mummy thinks she knows how little mini habibi is lying in her tummy, and attempts to "map-the-baby". Turns out my dearest boy is the other way around with his head at the top in a Frank Breech. Turn my little murmeli, turn.
Mummy somehow managed to sprain her ankle, and after a week hobbling around, the doctor suggested a brace. Well, more time for sitting and reading and preparing for your arrival.

Mummy practising her driving in Orca: so she can take you on car rides too when you are here.
