- Bath Chair
- Bouncy Chair
- Play gym 
 We are getting them 3 things next month when my bf gets paid so we dont have anaything to worry about really :) I do need the sterilizing equipment as well but my mum is going to be buying that for me so i dont need to worry about that. And then when it comes to all like the baby lotions and bath stuff my bfs nanny is getting that all for us plus some clothes, nappies, mittens, socks all little bits that will help out and shes putting it all in one of them bath boxes so i dont need to worry about any of that stuff either so yeah we are basically done withe everything we need :)


Movement :)

Well not really much to tell other than i can actually now see my belly move when my little princess kicks....omg its so weird just seeing my belly flick out but i love every minute of it :) Me and my boyfriend have just sat there staring at my belly for the past few nights just watching her be a little ninja, i love how active she is now because it makes me worry a hell of a lot less because its like a way of her telling me that shes there and shes okaay. Seriously though it seems like the closer my due date gets the slower the time gos, i have 15 weeks left and it feels like its just going to slow i just wanna meet my baby girl already! The first 20 weeks went like super quick and then all of a sudden the weeks have just slowed down and its crazy. Good thing is we have nearly finished baby shopping we only have a few extra bits to get next month when my bf gets paid and then we done :) I cant stop myself buying her clothes though, its like if i see something cute i have to get it, got to have my girl looking cute haven't i hehe :) Ohh and we got some total bargains in asda the other day, at they have their baby toddler event on we thought why not get some bits out the way.....we got a huggies hospital starter kit which has 27 nappies, a pack of wipes and cotton soft sheets all for £3 and then we got a pack of 75 newborn huggies nappies for £8, a box of 6 packs of little angels wipes for £4 and then the best thing that is seriously amazing we got a pack of 6 Tommee Tippee closer to nature pink bottles, they were meant to be £25 but they were down to £10, seriously how could i not get them for that price??? So im happy with my bargains i got lol :) Ohh and i have already packed Taylor's hospital bag as i have everything for it apart from the formula but we are getting that closer to the time and i have briefly started on mine but not in any rush at the minute. Lastly my bump is growing by the days now, its like she is just having a massive growth spurt because i just feel like i am getting bigger and bigger every day i wake up, evan my bf mentioned it to me saying i look bigger every morning lately :)
 This was taken at 22 weeks and 3 days......very proud mummy as you can see :)

This was taken at 23 weeks and 2 days....i don't no about anyone else but i can see the difference from 22 weeks :)

And then this was at 24 weeks and 4 days....and now i can definatley see the difference so she is growing very quickly but im proud of my bump and im proud of the fact im going to be a mummy to a beautiful baby girl :)

Yeah i no its a little late but i have been so busy haven't had time to write an update of whats going on. So my baby girl has started kicking like crazy and actually getting to the point where its keeping me awake but it feels so nice i love it, just reassures me that she is okaay :) My boyfriend finally got to feel her as well like a couple of days before Xmas, he was so happy and then he got to feel her Xmas day as well which was amazing for him and i cant tell you how happy it made him feeling our little princess, hes such a proud daddy :) But yeah our Christmas was really nice and my man spoilt me rotten bless him but then i was a super top gf by getting him a ps3 so i think he was quite spoilt as well lol :) But boxing day was the best day, i had my step daughter round mine opening all her presents from me and my boyfriend and she loved it, she took about 5 hours opening everything but it was an amazing day and she had a lot of fun playing with all her new toys, the only thing is her birthday is January 25th so shes gonna be getting spoilt again soon....more money out my pocket lol :) I had a good new years eve as well, we had family come round for a little get together and it was such a laugh, my boyfriend was  there as well and it was just so nice that he got along with all my family, he is the first bf iv ever introduced to other family members other than my mum, dad and brother so it was nice that everyone can see how serious i am about him and how much he is supporting me through this pregnancy, but he is such an amazing dad already so i new he was gonna support me the second i found out. But now its new year and a start to a new life, its now weird saying my daughter is gonna be born this year!!! But i have the most amazing first memory of  2013, and its one i will never forget because it was so perfect, me and my man laying in bed watching ted while we both feel our little princess kick away, now that is what i call a moment for life :) Hmmm what else can it i tell you......ohh we finally booked our 4d scan which i cannot wait to have, we have it booked for February 17th!!! I'm literally so excited hehe :) Also booked my 25 week appointment with the midwife as well which i have on January 29th so will probably get to hear my baby girls heartbeat again which will be amazing!!! :) Omg though my belly is literally growing daily now, its getting so big and i actually look pregnant instead of fat now....and its weird because i can actually see my belly move when she kicks its so beautiful to see and makes me such a proud mummy. Other symptoms are pretty much the usual but i have been getting the craziest back aches and it sucks, and i keep getting leg cramps as well which aint to good but i mostly only get them at night time when im sitting in the same position for to long. So everything is going super well with my baby girl and i love her more than anything in the world, she is my everything and i cannot wait to meet her, she is has been getting so spoilt as well i just cant help but spend money on her, she has so many clothes now and most of everything else to be honest lol :) So bring on 2013 i can see this being my year, and defoo a changed me, im crazy in love with the most amazing guy ever, i have a beautiful step daughter, should be moving out either before Taylor is here or not long after, going to be doing home study to get my qualifications in English, maths, fashion design and child psychology, maybe get engaged we will see as i no my bf wants to but i keep holding it off, and last but not least the main thing of this year going to meet my beautiful daughter which i cannot wait for im literally counting down the days (126 days left to be exact lol) hehe :) Anyway here is my latest belly pic, i have like a perfect bump atm, its perfectly round and i did have tiny stretch marks on my hips but they have faded so all good :) This pic i am 21 weeks and 6 days........

 Look at my beautiful baby girl bump, love my bump so much :) Mummy and Daddy love you loads princess cant wait to meet you <3 xxxxxx
