Settled in :)

Finally settled in to our new house, and omg im loving the grown up life so far. Its so much less stressful being in my own house with just me and my boyfriend, its nice to spend alone time together :) The house looks so nice and im so impressed with how well we have decorated everything and how we have laid out all the furniture, it looks amazing and im so proud to call this my home! I couldnt have done this all without my families help though, they have been so amazing the past 2 weeks helping us get everything in and helping us pay for some of things, so im very grateful towards my family!
Anyway Sunday i had the 4D scan which was the most amazing thing i have ever experienced, i didnt realise how clear they actually were but i saw my beautiful girls face and she looked so cute i just wanted her there right then to give her cuddles! The scan lasted for 20 mins and the whole thing was put on  a dvd which came with the package we paid for so now i can watch my baby girl as many times as i want.....and then we also paid extra to get a cd rom of all the still pictures that were taken, so we have nearly 100 pictures on a disk which im happy about :) I have a weird daughter though, the woman doing the scan said that babies usually have their hands in front of their face, but not my daughter she had her feet in her face.....typical of my child lol :) But she was very active through the whole scan and kept kicking the wand of my belly which was so cute, her face was clear and i can already see she has my nose and lips, and then she gave us a huge smile and stuck her tongue out which looked exactly like lacey's smile, so i have a feeling she is gonna look like Lacey which doesnt bother me coz she is a beautiful little monkey hehe :) So it was all worth the money and im glad i got to see her like that because it was the most beautiful thing i could have possibly done.....i wish i could do it again to be honest but i dont have the money to if not i probably would.
Today i had my 28 week midwife appointment which went really well, everything is fine, im measuring how i should be at 28 weeks and Taylor is head down so thats good, i was getting worried she wasnt going to move and something would go wrong but shes a good girl....and we got to hear her heartbeat and omg it was such a strong heartbeat, so beautiful just to hear it and no that she is okaay :) Booked in my whooping cough flu jab for thursday as i want to protect my daughter as much as i can so anything i can do to prevent anything happening to her i will....shes my world and i love her so much i couldnt bare having anything happen to her it would break my heart!!!
She is so active now though and my whole belly moves when she is having an active moment, its so weird watching it though it looks like something you would see in an alien film but i love watching it, me and my boyfriend will sit there and watch my belly for like half an hour straight, he always sits there and talks to my belly and touches it and she goes crazy so obviously a daddies girl already bless her.....its just nice to see him get excited like i do because i no a lot of guys wouldnt but he loves being a dad already and the thought of another little princess makes him feel amazing!!! Its nice that we can bring the girls up in a house thats nice and spacious, huge garden as well so we gonna be building them a wooden playhouse this summer and get a little climbing frame and trampoline out there, they are gonna love it!!!! Heres some pics of my bump and the 2D/4D scan :) <3

Im such a proud mummy its unreal, didnt think i could ever feel love like this for a human being but i have all this love for my daughter and shes not evan here yet!! <3 xxxxxx

New home!

So good news im finally moving out!!!! My grandads friend had a house that he wanted to put up for rent so we said we would rent it, its a 3 bedroom house and it is huge.....im so happy that Taylor and Lacey will get to have their own rooms and then the main bedroom is bigger enough to split into 2 bedrooms....i love it!!!! We have sorted most of the furniture already so literally we just need to do some painting in the living room and girls bedrooms and get the furniture in the house plus connect the cooker and washing machine so we can actually use them. Also the front door is  super stiff so we getting that sorted through the week. I havent been this happy in ages, finally i can start my own little family. Its so weird to think in the last 8 months i have found the perfect boyfriend i could possibly ask for who has given me a beautiful little girl thats going to be making an appearance in may and now we have our own house.....like everything is just going to perfectly for me right now couldnt ask for a better life!!!! I love the fact we have a huge main bedroom though, ever since i was a little girl i always wanted a big dressing table that i could have all my makeup, perfumes like all that stuff on and me and my bf managed to find a really beautiful one, someone sold us it for £50 but they paid £320 for it i am litrerally so over the moon its beautiful!! I will try get a pic of it because it is to die for im in love :)
So for the living room we have brown leather recliner sofa's (that are so comfy) and a tv that my nanny and grandad gave us, then we got coffee table and tv unit that my bfs mum got us, we  bought a computer desk and chair (only a little desk) from someone that wanted £25 for it so i didnt mind paying that as it looks brand new, and we using the dvd unit i have in my bedroom already as it looks new so thats all our living room sorted we just have to paint and get some new curtains.
The kitchen is quite big so im happy with that, all it needed was a good scrub down so i spent the other day doing that now its spick and span shiny...we bought a washing machine and cooker £150 for both, they are second hand but they are in good condition and work perfectly fine, and then we bought a fridge freezer from this woman and it cost us £60 and its basically brand new so that was a total bargain :) We have been buying all our kitchen bits as we go by like toaster, kettle, microwave, cutlery, dinnerwear ect and we have now got all that so as soon as we move in properly i will be putting all that in the kitchen.
The bathroom is not the best bathroom in the world, its quite small to be honest but cant have everything perfect, and it does need a really good scrub down as well, also needs a new toilet seat which my grandad is sorting for us. But its a good enough bathroom for us so im okaay with all that just need to give it a good clean and then it will look fine.
Our bedroom is amazing it is huge, like seriously i can fit so much in there. We have a double bed that my nanny has given us and my mum and dad are just buying the mattress for us. We have bought our duvet set and covers with pillows and pillow cases so we don't need to worry about them.We have just ordered 2 sets of drawers so we have one each and a 3 door wardrobe and they should be getting delivered Friday. And then obviously i have my dressing table as well. We still need to get bedside tables but i think my mum and dad may be getting them for us.
Lacey's room doesn't really need a lot of done to it because obviously she doesn't live with us, but she is going to be having my single bed i have in my room so it saves us buying her one and it has storage under it as well, then we are going to get her a little set of drawers to have her clothes in, then she will have a toybox in there with all her toys so i can see her room always being quite ummm messy lol :)
Taylors room is slightly smaller than Laceys but there isnt much difference in them, my nanny said she will buy a cotbed after Taylor is born so that helps alot! And then i will be putting my set of drawers in my room now into her room so i can store her clothes but apart from them i dont really need anything else in there until she is a little older so i will worry about other stuff later on in the year :)
And then lastly the garden....well omg!!! It is huge so i cant wait for the summer, Lacey and Taylor will have a garden to play in, and my bf and dad both love gardening so they will be getting stuck in doing that when the weather gets better :)
So we are very lucky really, i just cant wait to actually be moved in! If things go to plan this week we should be moved in by Friday or Saturday but we need to be in there by Feb 11th because we are getting our sky sorted then but we will if all this weeks decorating and moving goes to plan :) Only 14 weeks till my baby girl is due, and only 2 weeks until 4d scan, i cant wait to see my baby girl on a scan again just wanna no she is growing okaay and everything is fine....we did have midwife the other day and im measuring how i should be and got to hear her heartbeat and it sounded fine so she is all good in there but i wanna see it with my own eyes not just hear it.....So busy week ahead of me, moving is so stressful lol :)
