1st Wedding Anniversary!

Dear Diary,

It's hard to believe but Colin and I have been married a year on 28th August and we had a couple of lovely days to celebrate.
Monday was a Bank Holiday here in the UK and since we both didn't have to work we decided to drive down to Crawfordsburn and stayed the night at The Old Inn. It's a lovely old hotel, built in 1614!
The following morning, after a full Irish breakfast we went home, got showered and changed and made our way up the north coast to the Giants Causeway, which is probably one of N. Ireland's most visited tourist attractions.

The Causeway is divided up into sections and this particular section is called "The Organ" which is exactly what it looks like.

This illustrates just how tall The Organ actually is!

Me Colin

Pretty cool, eh?

To get back to our car, we had to climb up what seemed a few thousand feet, which left me absolutely knackered, as they say over here - hind sight tells me that being preggy I probably should've taken the van back up the cliffs but in the end, we had a great day! The only downer of the day was that by the time we got home, I was too tired to go to Ballygally Castle (the location for our wedding reception) for our anniversary dinner!
'Til next time,
Love, Heather, Colin and little one

Be bop a lu la, She’s my baby..

Dear Diary,

Last week Heather had her 12 week scan and I (Colin), was there to give some support. I must admit that it was quite an amazing experience to see the first images of your child. I will refer to the baby as her for the blog but we DO NOT know the gender yet. Seeing her move her tiny hands and feet even at this early stage gives us a great sense of awe. The picture is not the greatest but you can see the baby's head and body quite clearly. Her little hands are also visible near her nose and left shoulder. We are looking forward to the next scan so we can see even more of her.

As for names, well, Heather keeps firing them at me and I usually throw a possible nick name back at her. So we're still thinking about that. Ultimately though, this little person already has a name, we just have to wait for it to be revealed to us from above.......Until next time.............

Love from Colin, Heather and little one.....
