Yep. You read right.
A little (a lot) earlier than expected, given this little peanut is definitely unexpected, but such are the joys and surprises of life. I felt icky for a few weeks but simply couldn’t get my mind around that possibility, so I ruled it out entirely and just plodded along, blaming the extraordinary tiredness on busy season. Long story short I decided I better take the test to rule it out, and the practical side of me quietly had a heart attack and my dear husband might have actually had one. I’m due right in the middle of our next busy season which included a destination wedding I was looking forward to, as well as being a bridesmaid soon after! The rest of me just wanted to hold my little Jesse for awhile, as I didn’t feel quite ready to lose my alone time with that precious little boy just yet. But people have told me it will be nice that they grow up together, so I hope the little ones agree too!
So since we’ve now had a bit of time to adjust I’m rather excited about the next few crazy months – settling on our new home in a couple of weeks, trying to figure out how to make it pretty (there will be finally be space for a studio yippeeee!!!!), getting a much needed break in Singapore and Malaysia in winter to bring our little Jesse to visit all his relos, and getting ready for this new little addition. We also decided to cancel our extended holiday so we could just get our new place homely, so overall the timing has been quite a blessing.
I wanted to say a huge, huge thank you to the clients who have been so amazingly understanding through this time. They were the first to know and I was honestly so anxious about telling them as I can imagine what a big inconvenience this is to say the least, but their warm congratulations and willingness to come to a happy compromise made everything okay. Thank you also to my fellow photographers who helped me out in this pickle so that everyone could be taken care of (even if you didn’t flat out ask me if I was expecting haha), and I know that everyone is in wonderful hands!
So that is all for my little life update. I am now just past 12 weeks and looking forward to getting some energy back, having fun with a bunch of sweetheart and family sessions in the next few weeks, and…oh….living in leggings all winter….again :P
Much love!! xo
<edit> p.s. Just in case I freak people out inadvertantly, please rest assured that if you have not been contacted prior to this announcement, your wedding with us is snug as a bug. On the booking front however, there are very few spots left for 2012, but we will be ready to rock and roll into 2013 so please drop us a line whenever there’s some sparkle on that finger haha! Mwah!</edit>
