Significance of Number 2

Now when I talk about number two I mean it purely in a chronological sense - all babies are created equal - especially the wee ones. :)
This pregnancy has been much easier than Oliver so far - the morning sickness isn’t nearly so bad and I just seem to have more energy. I’m now moving into my fourth month - which helps of course. The morning sickness I did have was just awful. Why does no-one tell you how truly draining and debilitating it is? However I have to say - if that was the worst I will have to endure I am indeed a lucky woman.

Other salient facts - I’m craving fish this time around. Last time it was mangoes - this time fish - oh and ice cold water to boot. Stranger and stranger. Last night steven made me a fish finger sandwich (or the nearest thing in this country that there is to fish fingers) slam it in some white bread with ketchup and you got one very happy girl!

And lastly we’re kind of househunting. Keeping our eyes open to see if anything, affordable and halfway decent comes up. Last week was disastrous - there seemed to be nothing of any quality around. But this week - some potentials. Not going into too much detail in case we jinx it - but wait for the Kydd House blog to liven up distinctly sould it all come together.

Summer days in Maine

The other night I went to sleep to the singular sound of rain gently falling on the roof. That was quite literally ans astonishingly for someone who lives in the city, the only sound I could hear. Perfection.
We have been here just over a week now and I’m loath to leave. The days have been heady with sunshine, family, laughter and glorious scenery. We spent the weekend in Orono before heading down to the farm.
Seeing Dad play with Oliver and them getting to know each other was wonderful to see.
The farm has never looked better - I never cease to be amazed by everything they have achieved here, it is a truly magical place. Seeing Oliver roam around and explore this part of his heritage with his grandparents was unforgettable. Steven said this morning that this was a seminal trip for me and it’s true, I think it was for both of us. A moment to feel grounded again and remember what’s really important. With Oliver and number two on the way (our other news!) as well as my lovely husband beside me in this beautiful place - what else could a girl’s heart desire?
