Wearing jeans in the Middle East can only be compared to that scene in The Full Monty where he goes into the sauna wrapped in cling film πŸ˜‚. Shame all my maternity clothes are still lost somewhere in the middle of the sea along with our furniture... πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ#sweatpantsaretheonlythingthatfitmerightnow

Jack and his beloved spoon! I swear this boy doesn't like toys... he seems to be interested in the most mundane household objects, so much so that our cutlery drawer is always empty (contents to be found in the back seat of the car), we have a "play" TV remote, our house is littered with empty lidless water bottles, the only bath toy he likes is my shampoo bottle and you'll often find him cuddling my sunglasses case! πŸ˜‚ Anything for an easy life I suppose... .

"This time I have been (in the words of my husband) a horrific beast"... got to love those pregnancy hormones πŸ˜‚πŸ™ŒπŸΌ. My 12 week pregnancy update is finally up on the blog along with some photos of my 16 week bump! Trying to think of an excuse as to why it's so late but #mumlife! Also pleased to report that the crazy mood swings have now subsided and my marriage is safe for now πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈπŸ˜‚πŸ€°πŸΌ! #ilovesecondtrimester

Holding that little hand as tightly as I can while he still needs me to! We're now up to 10 steps and this little man seems to be enjoying his freedom more and more... so amazing to watch him develop new skills like this πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸΌ

I sometimes wonder if there is enough emphasis put on the importance of raising boys?! I'm forever seeing posts about raising strong, independent girls, but I very rarely see anything about boys?? Whilst I understand that raising girls like that πŸ‘†πŸΌis EXTREMELY important (and I'm all for acknowledging that as much as we can 😍)... I feel as though there is an equal responsibility on mothers to raise kind, respectful boys and to teach them that they too are capable of anything they put their mind to... just a thought from a sleep deprived, hormonal, slightly ill, preggo mama! πŸ€”πŸ˜‚ #proudboymum

It's so good to be back with my boy! πŸ’™ My little hospital trip was an amazing reminder of how I need to be looking after myself for both of my babies! 😊 I've never missed punches to the face, snot in my hair, sharing half eaten sweaty palm food or sloppy kisses more! 😍 now time for a team nap 😴

I felt my first kick last night! πŸ’ž It was so special because I haven't been feeling overly pregnant this time (the way I did with Jack)... my symptoms are much less and it's almost been business as usual! Just one kick was all it took to remind me of all that is to come with this pregnancy... I can't wait for those movements to get stronger and more frequent 😍! Here is a little flashback to 34 weeks with Jack, my bestie @rpsnaps came round and captured some photos for me and I'm so glad she did because these pictures never fail to amaze me, the human body is seriously incredible! 😊

Today has turned out to be extremely special because it is the day that Jack took his first proper steps! 😍😭 I even managed to catch them on film... I wasn't going to post this but after noticing Ricky's face in the background I just have to... his face says it all, we're so proud of you little Jack! #timetobabyproof πŸ’™

The weekend starts on a Friday here in Doha and we're not mad about that! πŸ˜πŸ™ŒπŸΌ Would love to say we're cooling down in the water but the swimming pool here is like a warm bath due to the insane heat! πŸ’¦πŸ”₯ I'm also feeling a little self conscious in bathers because I'm in the awkward "don't quite look pregnant/boobs the size of melons stage" 🍈🍈 and a group of 'hot' young girls πŸ‘™ and 'chiseled by the gods' boys πŸ‹πŸ½ were having a pool party to the left of us! πŸ™ˆπŸ˜‚πŸ€¦πŸΌβ€β™€οΈ... when did you POP in pregnancy?! I'd love to know! 😘

This set up is something that is going to be pretty commonplace over the next 3 years... this mama has finally taken the plunge and commenced studies towards a Masters in Business (long distance). πŸ€“πŸ“πŸ““πŸ’»πŸ‘©πŸΌβ€πŸŽ“I know it's going to be full on with 2 babies in tow but I'm so excited to embark on the challenge/have something that is just for me! Now to remove the cobwebs from my brain which has fallen victim to babies and motherhood! πŸ™ˆπŸ™ŒπŸΌ #mustshakethebabybrain

And just like that you are 11 months 😍!Yesterday you stood up yourself (which you've done for the past week) and you took a step... only 1, but I know it is the start of many. You love to say "mama, dada, cat, quack and hiya". You are the most inquisitive little human being I've ever come across and you explore every single part of your surroundings (I could watch you doing this for hours). You have learnt how to be gentle with the cats and just love our big boy Thor 😻. You LOVE to dance and the second any music comes on you wave your arms around madly and want us to join in. You are mildly obsessed with the Teletubbies. You always want to share... whether it's food or toys, you always offer what you have to me and if I don't accept, you look sad! You find the coffee machine hilarious and you're terrified of the vacuum cleaner! You still clap your hands and smile when daddy gets home from work, I think it's your favourite part of the day. You are super cuddly and affectionate, very much a mummy's boy! Next month you will be ONE and mummy can't cope with how quickly you're growing up 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭!
