After some window shopping on Marylebone High Street and taking Sean to the library, we popped in to nearby Zizzi for an early dinner
Hubby surprised me with the excellent colour combination he put together :-)
I'm 34 weeks pregnant today, with 42 days remaining until my due date
As the indigestion has returned, I have to be careful with what I eat (and drink), or else my upper torso feels like it's on fire!

|Bear and I set the alarm for 6am, got up and prepared toast with peanut butter and a hot chocolate for Sean, and surprised him with singing 'Happy Birthday' as he was pretending to be asleep|
|Ta-dah! The custom-made hedgehog chocolate cake that the young man chose himself|
|Blowing out the five candles|
|When it's your birthday, a little slice of cake is allowed before going to school :-)|
|I can't quite grasp that I'm soon about to feel the same strong motherly love I have for Sean, for another little person!|
|My dashing little man changed in to this outfit after school (here he is talking on Daddy's phone to his Auntie Keri, who's wishing him happy b'day)|
|And off we went to Winter Wonderland in Hyde Park|
|WW provides endless entertainments incl rides that suits all ages|
|The entrance is free (although everything is very expensive there so make sure you have cash with you as they don't take cards!), and you will never go hungry or thirsty with numerous stalls selling all kinds of food and drink.|
|Daddy taking a break from all the rides, with a German beer and sausage, in the Bavarian Village|
|Sean in his new black glossy hooded puffer coat from Moncler - providing stylish warmth when the temperatures falls - so much so that he had to take it off at one point for being hot lol|
|In a taxi going home after all the fun - tired, but very happy :-)|

Bear and I went for an appointment with my consultant at The Lindo Wing this afternoon, and a scan showed my baby has turned around and has her head first now :-) What an incredible feeling - I can't even begin to describe what a relief that is Whoop whoop, I am so happy!!!!
|27 November 2008 - Sean, here only a few hours old|
We were sitting on the bus together the other day, and I was stroking Sean's head, like I always do, looking at him and remembering the first time Mum and I took him on the bus (with our big "Rolls Royce" of a pram, the 'Emmaljunga') to Kilburn, back when he was just five days old.
My Mum stayed for six weeks back then to help me with my new mummy-role, but after that it was just me and him everyday, going on adventures around London town, and developing a child/parent relationship, and I remember I did everything to keep him safe and sound.
Sean introduced me to parenting and all the wonderful things that come with it. He is really funny and smart, and personally I think he has a sense of humour, well beyond his 5 years.
My favourite thing about him, though has got to be his big heart. He is so compassionate and full of love. He shares, is often selfless and it makes me so incredibly proud of him.
Yesterday he brought home a gift from school for his baby sister, a prize he had won for completing a task. And he decided to pass it on to his unborn sibling - how thoughtful is that?! Also, I honestly can't count on two hands how many kisses he gives me daily!
He has made me a better person, a more patient person that's for sure, and these have been the fullest and best five years of my life.
Another thing that I must highlight before I go is that he has taught me that there is such thing as unconditional love, and I am grateful for every single day I get to spend with him!
Happy Birthday my darling son, my flesh and blood, my treasure - I love you immeasurably ♥
Now let's get the celebrations started shall we?!
