Not much longer now...!

c. 12 days to go..................!

As you know, Gertrude and I have been very interested in all the new things arriving in our house. This funny basket thing moves and there are some very interesting noisy toys inside it that we have our eyes on...!

We are practising our guarding skills - I wonder, do you think we should drag our beds up here too so that we can be on constant baby watch??

You see - I told you there were interesting toys everywhere - just hiding from us!

Here I am checking on everything in the nursery

And look - just some of the Airedale pictures that baby Torney will be able to look at!
It's a peaceful place.
Our Aussie Nana made this great quilt for the baby - it is really clever and has little mice and flowers and toadstools all over it. We are hoping for similar blankets for our own beds.....

And some other friends made these sweet little clothes. We think those mittens look really cosy - do you think they'd fit us?
So - 12 days to go.......
AND 12 days to go until Molly's birthday!! Yippee!! I hope that they don't forget what with everything going on....
Mummy finishes work this Friday and then she'll be home with us for 9 whole glorious months!!
Lots of love from
Molly and Gertrude

12 days wow thats gone so quick. I hope you girls have been learning your babysitting skills.
This will be a life changing experience when your little baby arrives. Be patient with your new baby it won't belong until Torney will be your best friend ever.
No work for 9 months your mum must be over the moon. look after your mum now.

Ludo the cool dude (also the wise one hahahhah)

This is so exciting! Only 11 days to go. I have to wait 16 days for my girls and boys to arrive. You never know if they come early your hooman brother and my girls and boys could share the same birthday as Molly!

That is a very beautiful nursery for your brother to come home to. Your Aussie nana is very clever - what a beautiful quilt!

Wow - time is ticking away now girls. I really think your mum should have gone for a home birth and then you could really have been in on the action...........second thoughts - maybe not!

Good luck - 9 months of having mum home - what happens then do you get to look after baby when she goes back to work?
