20 Days to wait

20 days until due date.
My daughter Amy left work on Tuesday to await the arrival of Baby No.2
This means no more babysitting of recently turned 3yo Riley for 2 days a week.
Took this photo of Riley kissing 'his baby' this morning.
Love him standing there on his 'tippy toes' to kiss his Mums belly

 Can't wait to see if it is a boy or a girl.
Amy would dearly love a girl but thinks it will probably be another boy.

Three weeks after Amy's baby is due we will be ready for
my son Daniel and his fiance Candice to have their little girl
This is Daniel reading a story to their baby - the book was a gift to Daniel from Amy

 Love hanging out the washing and seeing this gorgeous climbing Pierre de Ronsard rose in bloom

 Such pretty petals

 Becoming so soft and pretty

Pretty flowers on the Mock Orange - Murraya paniculata

How pretty the Banksia Rose looks climbing along the fence behind the Silver Birch

Beautiful Banksia Rose

Hi Alison,
Thank you for your uplifting words of encouragement. I really appreciate them.

How exciting to have two new babies added to the family! I love the picture of Riley kissing his mommy's tummy. How cute is that!

Also love all the pictures of your gorgeous flowers. Ok, I'll admit it. I'm a little jealous of your garden.
