25 Days to go before the due date of Amy's 1st baby. Lucky she doesn't know I have a blog or I would be in trouble for putting this photo on that I took last night at about 9 o'clock(not the most flattering photo but that's life). She is getting very tired and thankfully finishes work tomorrow.
We call her baby the 'R' Baby as if it is a girl she will be called Ruby after my Mum(Amy's Grandma) who has passed away- or Riley for a boy.
Amy and Ryan are both getting really excited about their baby. Me too, as I get to go in and help out at the delivery!!

Oh,how exciting! And you have to have a picture like that, I hate the ones of me but my kids love them! Thanks for your comment on my blog, it is nice to know my kids aren't the only ones who don't want to share their beds!

I hope you dont get sprung with that photo.
You are so excited arent you...i can tell :)

How exciting for you Alison, it's good you're so close to your daughter, bet she finds out eventually about the photo, we'll understand if it suddenly disapears
Good luck and keep us up to date

That is such a lovely photo of your daughter! She looks fabulous!! I hated being photographed while pregnant, but I love to look back at them (well not all of them as I was sooo fat). I love the names too!

Gosh Alison, your blog is adorable! I am just starting to enjoy tea. My parents were more of coffee drinkers (and I do love my coffee) but every once in a while they would have a pot of tea. Now there are so many different flavors and brands so readily available you can't help but try some of them.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments on my blog. It is such a treat for me to meet new people.

Let's see - congratulations on your soon-to-be-here new grandbaby! Your "cake" was about the cutest thing I have ever seen. And your teacups are to die for. Heck, even if I didn't like tea I might have to learn just to drink from cups like that. And being that Grease is one of my favorite movies, I always wanted to say this to someone: How are things down under?

Thanks again for visiting and come back soon!
