An EXTRA special Mother's Day :)

Tuesday, May 15, 2012

I've been very quiet of late haven't I... well hopefully this post will explain a bit more :)

How were your Mother's Day celebrations?! Well I was lucky enough to have my Mum fly up from Melbourne on Friday night to spend the whole weekend here with us :) On Saturday we treated her to a massage at a local day spa before she had to put on her baby sitting hat... MR B and I had a party to attend on Saturday night so Mum gladly watched Allegra for us so we could get glammed up and have a night out (quite a rare occasion these days)! I was spoilt with some stunning jewellery (which you will see me wearing below) as well as a few other little goodies. We asked my Mum if there was anything in Sydney she wanted to see and she suggested Madam Tussauds! We hadn't been yet either so the four of us heading in early on Sunday morning, it was lots of fun and scary how life-like some of the recreations were! We had originally planned to go out for a late lunch on the Sunday, however, the weather was rather chilly with a real bite in the air so we decided to cosy up in side, pop on a movie and order take out instead :) Here are a few pics from our weekend :)

As the party was on Saturday night, I got
my Mother's Day gifts a day

 early so I could wear them :)
Here they are! Gorgeous right?! :)
My complete outfit!

AND the extra special news....
YES, you guessed it, I am pregnant with

 Baby Bouw #2! This photo was taken on
Sunday, 2 days shy of 13 weeks :)

So besides being just busy with life in general, I have also been busy feeling rather lousy for the last 4- 6 weeks :( Allegra's pregnancy was quite smooth and I didn't experience many of the yukkies that come along with the first trimester... this bubba on the other hand had other plans for Mumma! I have only just started feeling (and looking) human again this last week which explains my absence. And I think looking after a 17 month old this time around definitely changed the landscape a little! We are very excited that we are finally able to shout our news from the rooftops :) I am 13 weeks pregnant today with bubba's expected due date being 20th November (the exact same due date as what Allegra had ~ unbelievable right)!

And if you weren't already sick of the obsessive (proud) Mumma in me than look out, because it's about to double :) I hope to share this pregnancy with you all and create a beautiful log for both myself and Baby Bouw #2 just as I did for Allegra :) And hello, it means I get to decorate a whole new nursery... yeeehaaaa! :)

I hope your Mother's Days were just as special as mine! Have a great week :) x

    Congratulations!! I must say I have been waiting for this very special news for a while now. Can't wait for all the BB#2 updates. Looking fabulous as always.

    PS - where did you get that fabulous black shift dress, I have been looking for something like that for years now. :)

    1. Hi Meagan! Thanks so much for your congrats :) Re: the black dress pictured above, it was actually the first dress I purchased post-pregnancy (as we had a wedding to attend when Allegra was 7 weeks old) so it's over two years old! It's Scanlan & Theodore and I snapped it up half price during their sales... it was originally $600 ~ yikes :/ But I must say I have worn it about 4 times now mixing it with different accessories and I think it will be one of my got-to dresses for many years! Every girl must have a LBD! x

  22. Congratulations Sonia!! That's such exciting news, I'm really happy for you. Amy xxx

  23. Thanks so much for all your congrats and well wishes... we are very excited indeed! :) x

  24. Congrats to you & your hubby Sonia!! Very exciting news. I've been reading your blog since you were pregnant with Allegra so very much looking forward to reading your posts over the next couple of months!! Can I ask you where u got that gorgeous dress you were wearing at Madam Tussuands? You look stunning!!

    1. Thanks so much Kate! I don't know how regular my posting will be with this bubs but I will do my best :) The dress I am wearing at Madam Tussauds is a 'Wish' dress and I bought it at Myer. I originally spotted this Zepplin Cape in the same fabric online however they didn't have it in store BUT they did have the dress which I love even more :) Happy shopping! x

    2. Thanks for the quick reply, I'll def keep an eye out next time im in Myer. I love the cape but the dress is sooo nice. I'm pregnant with bub no.2 as well & this pregnancy is a lot more hectic when you have a toddler to chase after! Its very tiring. All the best xx

  25. Congratulations on the second baby! I love your blog, and Allegra is adorable :) Cant wait to see what you do with the second nursery..

  26. Oh Sweetheart..thats FANTASTIC NEWS!! Congratulations!! I hope the yuckiness subsides and that you start to feel better soon. YAY..another little baby beautiful if you have one of each..either way little baby bouw No 2 is going to be nothing less than absolutely adorable! Look forward to sharing the second journey along with you x

  27. I have just been catching up on your news and OMG, so exciting....
    Bubba number 2 will be just beautiful and Allegra will be the best big Sister.
    Take care and look after yourself....xK
    I also realise now you and my hubby share a birthday, what a great day.
