Easter and frocks and a BIG bump

EASTER again..
It's a LOVELY time of year here in NZ. Getting a bit colder but the days are absolutely beautiful. ACtually I believe we've had a bit of a heatwave in the last 3 days.. SO HOT!
Iris's easter frock. (she thinks they're easter eggs)
This was another one that I had as a kid.
Bless my Mum for keeping them all.. she was SO thrifty, and sentimental!

Frock from yesterday.
A LONG maxi that someone gave me. Lightweight cotton from Glassons.
With my trusty navy cardy and the belt I got the other day at the oppy.



More balloon action.

This is what I put on at 6.30 am last week..
I didn't think about it as I chucked it on,but I had actually DRESSED like a BALLOON.
LOL!


I picked this up a couple of days ago. LOVE IT! Will try and get a full length shot at some stage.


Had a scan yesterday to see how big the baby is. ( I have big babies, and since the delivery of my number three -11 lb 10oz -   we have had to monitor the sizes to avoid another baby getting stuck as it was
NOT NICE!
( I am a natural birth advocate but that was SCARY. )
Anyway, this baby is currently about 6 pounds something, and I still have 8 weeks to go. That's big.
Explains why I'm busting out of all my frocks and why my feet are so swollen.
Happy Easter.
Back in a week or so!

Hope you all have fun!
I'm looking forward to op shopping in other parts of this island!
YAY!

MY FLIPPING GOODNESS 11 pounds!! DEAR LORD...
I was a average baby at 7 pounds something and my Husband was born 2 months pre-mature and looked like some sort of Alien creature... (Cute but Alien-ish) shh don't tell him. heheh
I REALLY hope I end up having small babies. I am nervous about the whole thing to begin with ... but thinking about a 11 pound baby makes me want to hide under my bed. *lol* Thats probably around the weight of our Easter Turkey this year. ;)

Your top pic is so cute.
Iris's dress is just the sweetest and I love that it was owned by you before her.

Happy Easter to you and your family.

Happy Easter to you and your pretty family. I have yet to break open a box my mom saved of my baby clothes 0-6 months. It says "don't throw away" on it haha. Glad for my mom doing that.
