the finished product

The casting of the belly

As promised, we cast Mummy's tummy on the weekend and she has said its ok to post a few of the photos as it is such a crazy thing to do anyway - you have to see it to believe it.
I wasnt' actually that much help, as I wanted to sit on Mummy's lap and when I couldn't, I cried, ran around falling over things, hurting myself, and then took off my clothes. All quite distracting really as Daddy was trying to do the plastering very quickly.

Mummy is now 39 weeks and is pretty huge and uncomfy - there is not much lap left for me to sit on.

For the first time ever, I asked to wear a dress today

I like parties!

Here I am at Tamara's 3rd birthday enjoying the delicious croquem-bouche (spelling?) birthday cake. When the sugar kicked in I decided to give Daddy a big bear hug and got him in my special strangle-hold.

I really liked Mr Wiggles (the entertainer) and the next day copied his little trick of walking about with a plastic snake (a gift from Auntie Clare) wrapping it around mummy and saying "would you like to give the snake a kiss" - creepy stuff.

my mummy has a big tummy

There are only 3 weeks left before I get my baby. I have tried out my crib-rocking style and folded up baby's clothes. Mummy bought baby a new bear because it cannot have my bear. Tomorrow we are going to cast mummy's bump in plaster of paris (mummy and daddy did the same for me when I was only a bump) in case baby decides to come early. Mummy may or may not put a photo on the blog of the process - depends how big she looks. I am going to help lots.

Mummy's not working now

So I get to spend much more time with her! We've been creating works of art, we've been baking pink pies and we've spent a lot of time in the park. I have my own pink apron for when we do messy activities. Viewers, please note mummy's kitchen aid in the background.
