Where do I start?
This person to follow means a lot to me. She dropped me on my head when I was a baby. She changed my nappies (also as a baby) , gave me my first drink, taught me to drive, grounded me when I was a naughty 14 year old, made me an Aunty at the ripe old age of 12 years old and stood by me when I got married. Considering we as sisters are two completely different people. We are still as tight as ever.
Fast forward 13 years. 4 kids later between 8 and 13. My sister Carol, is pregnant again with her 5th child. FIVE kids!
When we were young, she vowed and declared she would NEVER be a mother. Never say never sister!
And thank goodness she ate her words. Because she is such an amazing Mother. And my nephews love her so much!
So one lovely Sunday morning bright and early, we caught the wonder that is pregnancy in Hagley Park with the bluebells.
It hasn’t been the easiest pregnancy, infact it’s really given us all quite the scare, but here she is at 31 weeks. When we were unsure she’d get to 24 weeks.
With some massive difficulties Carol has been on bed rest for the last 4 months. That little tyke inside doesn’t seem to like anything more than a glacial pace in movement. But with the INCREDIBLE support (not to mention watchful eyes of Terry to make sure she doesn’t lift a finger) Carol is getting through what seems to be the longest period of her life.
(Bed Rest = trying to slow down an Ellis?! …Ya, watch out universe!)
This has to be my favourite. Must be why I’ve framed it already!
I kind of want to cry at how much this photo makes me happy. Yes, I’m a sissy, deal with it! :o)
I’m trying to limit the gooey content I put in this blog post because my sister will probably shudder.lol.
So on that note, I shall defy what I just said and gush over how much I love the way Terry looks at Carol. Nawwww.
And in turn, I catch Carol looking at Terry the same way. Gush, gush, gush!
Well hello green eyes.
I am so glad number 5 is holding on for dear life because once he or she is done baking, I really can’t wait to meet him or her. 4 older brothers? It’s going to be welllll protected!
At a day by day, week by week stage. Regardless of a few knock backs… baby is getting stronger by the day.
So keep the wee one baking, so I can actually do some work, because we just knowwww that once you pop Carol… me and my camera are going to be stuck to you like gum.
Thanks for a great shoot on Sunday morning Carol & Terry. You two are my heroes.
Love you loads! xxx
