It's not just my waistline that's been expanding of late, but that of my niece. The same lovely Louise that got married last October is now very much "with child"!
I am sooooo excited! There were a few health issues in the beginning which is why there has been a bit of a delay in putting this news on my blog, but now all is well and baby will be putting in an appearance at the end of September/the beginning of October.
Aaaaaaand we also now know that it's going to be a GIRL! FANTASTIC! We need a stronger female presence chez Dawson as it's only Louise and I (and Tomasina the cat) flying the flag for "girl power" at the moment.
I've posted a few pictures of our recent trip to Italy, pictures which not only capture what an amazing holiday we all had, but show mum-to-be in full bloom!
Everyone is asking what the baby will call me because of the special relationship that Louise and have. I can confirm, that contrary to what some are saying, there will be no "granny Dawson"! Auntie Anne will do just fine
I do hope you're enjoying the sunshine that we're having. The temperatures have been phenomenal! Next week I'm taking the youngest to Israel. Having just looked at the forecast for Saturday at the Dead Sea, I see it's going to be 43 degrees! Are you sure?!
Will touch base when I get back.
Love to you all.
