I hear rumours of people wondering how I am going, wanting to know what is going on and what's news.  Seems people remember me!

So here it is.  Update:

FawnChild is to be born in March this year.

Yes, we are having a baby.

For those who don't know - we found out we were pregnant a couple of days before Avery's first birthday.  

Don't know who Avery is?  Click Here.  Take Tissues.

The Divine Miss T will be 7.5 years old when FawnChild arrives.  And I thought she was going to be "big" when Avery arrived!

Life is still going on.  But I am very much in denial.

"I am not pregnant, I am just tired..."

Slowly I am waking though.  Maybe my eyes will be open before this baby arrives...

Been following your journey on FB, will be awaiting the news of FawnChilds birth. I am sure its to be a beautiful birth, and babe will be welcomed into a wonderful loving family! And just as before I bet T will be a beautiful loving and attentive big sister. I know its been a rough ride for you, your grief has been so raw, and its so refreshing to see your openess in what is usually such a private journey for people. Bless you all. I remember when T was born via another forum (to do with weddings wink.gif )

I have been following your blog and wondering how you were (kept thinking I should see if you were still around here). I was in your DIG with Avery, but I left early when my little one grew wings at 9 weeks sad.gif
