I've caught the flu. This is so not the right time and so annoying and tiring. Especially since I got vaccinated last November! I've had a few pretty bad days trying to be better and now I feel a bit better but I'm still tired and coughing. I just want it to be over.

On a good note, my Mom and little sister spent last week with us and it was such a great treat to have them here. My Mom did all my ironing (THANKS Mom!!) and Gaby helped around with vacuuming and the dishes and we've spent a lot of quality time talking and just be together: we went to the restaurant, ate French fries at the frietkot, went shopping for my little sister and I spoiled them both to the hairdresser and they look amazing! My Mom helped me finish my maternity bag (blogpost to come) and she taught me how to make apple compote, which is actually so easy! And oh so very yummy!

Today we had a pregnancy photoshoot done at home; it was lovely and fun even though we didn't know what to do with ourself. I can't wait to see how the pictures will turn out.

I capture this moment just after our photographer was gone: I was taking to Peter about what we still had to prepare before bébé arrives and at some point when he didn't answer I took a look and saw he was fast asleep. It was SO cute! I think this photo is my favorite of us three during this pregnancy.

I've finally finished the whole series of Harry Potter. I still love it as much as I did when I first started reading them. They're just amazing and really take you out on a beautiful journey.

When I read, bébé kicks, I think s/he loves it too, especially when I read out loud. I've started reading a little story about a little thoughtful hedgehog who shares the big apple he found in the forest and I can already tell that this is going to be a lovely moment with bébé when I'll read to him/her when s/he is out and bigger.
