four little words

October 5, 2015 at 8:36 pm 8 comments

Four little words.  Caught in my throat.  Barely a whisper.  As tears filled my eyes.
G smiled.  Silently.  Before bear hugging the breath out of me.

Four little words. ”We made a baby”



a highly improbable or extraordinary event, development, or accomplishment
that brings very welcome consequences.

    For anyone who doesn’t believe in God, proof that he listens to prayer and truly provides the most beautiful gifts. Congrats! Xx

    Together you’re making 4 more
    A delightful human being.
    Congratulations to the 3 of you, whoops, + cats :~)
    for the memories you’re making, so that when E is grown
    and ready to take his place in society it will be on solid foundations.
    He’ll have so much to give a partner and children all because you
    and G had those original 4 little words.

    Oh my darling, darling girl . . . deepest wonderful congratulations to you both (must never forget the wonderful G!!!)

    I’m not very good at “reading” scans and things … but that does not look like a tiny little bunch of cells to me. You know you have now got to share more – when are you due, how long have you hugged this wonderful delicious secret to yourselves? What does E. say?

    Thank you for gorgeous email – will reply later, just off to bed now 🙂

Roadies.  When your Dad @musicalgeorgemoorey has a gig coming up and doesn't want to keep lugging his kit downstairs it becomes THE place in the room to sit!  #spacesgloucester #gloucesterlife So lush, they've made a den under the table and called for the iPad so they could watch their favourite Netflix episode inside.  #5minutespeaceandquiet Green eggs biscuits trial run for Es Dr Seuss birthday party next week.  Figured they'd be more appealing to 5 year olds than dying real eggs green!
#drseussparty #greeneggsandham #drseussfans Saturday morning Lego session.  All his own work, not bad for a 1 year old!
#welovelego #unpluggedchildhood #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog November 2011 on an unbelievably sunny day, with an allotment flourishing with green manure plants and an enormous 7 month bump.  As you can imagine I didn't get much gardening done that day!  Seems crazy how quickly the years have gone, our bump will be 6 next week! 
#nipitinthebudblog #allotmentgardening #growingvegwithkids #7monthspregnant #newblogpost inspired by @glennondoyles David Bowie quote post earlier today.  A reflection on unbecoming and being comfortable in your own skin.  Braving the Wilderness by @brenebrown is providing great food for thought when the toddler doesn't bat it out of my hand in disgust that I mistook him playing contentedly as an opportunity for pause and reflection!
