Whats being happening in my silent period…

I’ve been rather silent.  There has been a lot going on in our lives and it’s been all go, go, go with seemingly no end in sight.

So what has been going on?

We had to wait until our 20 week scan for the big gender reveal.  We were both quite pleasantly surprised to hear that we were expecting a baby girl.  Reason for this surprise is quite simple – there are very few girl children in the Young family lineage.  I had really just assumed that with the Young gene pool history that our second miracle would be a boy.  It was initially quite an adjustment for me to think about this baby being a girl but now that I’ve wrapped my head around it I’m really chuffed to be getting a daughter.

There have been many visits to bathroom and tiling stores.  Meetings with our architect and many quotes obtained on everything from builders to tilers to tiles to plumbers to electricians to toilets to staircases and so on and so forth.  We’ve officially entered into the mayhem that is pretty much an entire household renovation and it’s certainly been… interesting.  We are learning a LOT about building and going with the flow that is living on a construction zone and not sweating to much about just how DIRTY and DUSTY EVERYTHING is 😉  Moving all of us in to our cottage and storing 3 bedrooms, 2 bathrooms and 1 kitchen’s worth of STUFF in one cottage and a double garage has also been challenging.  Finding that STUFF again when you figure out you actually need it is… lets just say fun.  (I’m lying) We’ve had to amend bed time routines, and microwave meals lose their appeal REALLY quickly when you’re eating them every night.  I am going to say that my child impresses me every day with his ability to adjust to change in his life.  He’s taken this renovation in his stride.  He teaches me everyday to let go and allow life to happen.

There’s some things on my mind that I need to get out but that’s for another day.

So yes, life is busy and there is a lot going on, but all in a very, very good way!

  1. So excited for you Sam…a little girl! Lots of shopping ahead . I love the pics. Enjoy the rest of the busy weeks ahead. Looking forward to more updates. Xxx


  2. Sympathy for the constant dust in your house. Once all of that is done, it will be worth it.

    Your shot of pink…I love it. DH’s family also had a lot of boys, except that the generation that my husband is in has got more girls than boys…such a turn!


  3. A girl!! How lovely! We were also very surprised to see it was a girl but we adjusted the minute we held her in our arms. Love love love the pics of the renovation, not sure if you remember but we also did some major work to the house when I was pregnant with Oliver, must be the nesting need! Love, Fran


  4. Congratulations on having a little princess! Gosh, you certainly have a lot of guts to do such major renovations! I’m sure it will look great when its finished though!


  5. Jealous you are having a girl! I have a 2.5 year old boy and I’m pregnant with twin boys. I knew they were boys and wanted boys but adjusting to never having a girl has been a little challenging. Congratulations!!
