I hope you all had a lovely Easter and bank holiday weekend - wasn't it lovely to have so much time off? We started the weekend with minimal plans and ended up filling each day to the point we were absolutely exhausted by the end of it. We took part in an 'Egg Extravaganza' at a local farm, went swimming, visited Oxford for the day, got lots of jobs done around the house and exchanged Easter eggs. We're currently starting to focus on getting Isabella's 'big girl' room ready for her to move in as time is slipping away and ideally she'd be well settled by the time the baby arrives. Finger's crossed we can get it done (that's the royal 'we' - I won't be doing much at 34 weeks pregnant!).

I haven't done a pregnancy update in quite a while, so I thought I'd write about what's been happening over the last 6 weeks. Life has been extremely busy recently and getting time to write the weekly updates became too much, however I have continued to take weekly bump photos.

Mexican food is one of my all time favourites - the endless avocado, beans and interesting flavours make it exciting. We don't have any good Mexican restaurants (that I know of) near where we live, so I'll often cook Mexican dishes at home instead. Enchiladas, burritos and fajitas are all easy meals to cook a vegetarian and meat version; I'll fill mine with beans/vegetables, while my husband has chicken strips and peppers. These sweet potato and mushroom enchiladas are seriously tasty, easy to make and full of flavour.

It's been a funny old week, as I've had some very rare time away from both Isabella and work. Isabella was in nursery for 1.5 days, so one of the days my husband and I had a working lunch together and for the half a day I went food shopping. It was so quiet and strange if I'm honest, pick up time couldn't come quick enough. It's made me realise I need to have some proper plans/jobs to do when I start maternity leave properly, as I'll have three days a week by myself and I don't want to waste that precious time.

Now that baby number two is making an appearance in a matter of weeks (ok, I could still say months but weeks sounds better) I thought I'd put together a wishlist. These are some of the things that I would love to get in readiness for baby number two, though in reality we really don't need very much. I think that's why these are mainly decorative because I'm keen to make some slight changes to the nursery. I am already conscious that this baby will be having a lot of hand-me-downs, as we're expecting another girl, so by changing the nursery it will feel like a new experience again. That's what I'm hoping anyway.

On Sunday we had Isabella's much anticipated second birthday party, with a floral bunny theme. The fact that my baby is now two is hard to believe and because it's her last birthday as an only child I really wanted to make it special. Last year we had a floral themed birthday party for first birthday (have a nosey here), which was so lovely but Isabella was too young to really understand that everyone was there for her. However, this year she knows what's going on and it made the party planning so much more exciting!
