Word of the week: Anticipation

Yes, you guessed it, baby is still not here. But this week has been all about nesting: stocking up on frozen goods, tidying, doing loads of laundry and ironing and anticipating the great arrival.

I think I have actually been so busy with all the preparations that on some level it seems a bit unreal that in a few days (hopefully) I will hold my newborn in my arms. It has also been a time filled with anxiety and the normal questions: “How will I cope?”, How will Emma react to the change?” “Will he be a good baby?” “When I be able to resume normal life?”…etc.

All in all, this week has felt like the end of a long and tiresome journey: the last hours always seem the longest, don’t they :-)?

  1. Brilliant #WotW choice. I keep checking your Twitter for news of an arrival! I’m sure he’ll be here soon, and those questions are totally natural. In my case, Little Man just fit into our lives from day one, and it’s like we’ve always had him! Best of luck when the time comes. Thanks for joining in with #WotW x

    • Thank you for the encouraging words, they mean so much! Yes, I will let everybody know once he is out!xx
