I love tulips. Tulips are my favourite flowers amongst all. But I am not going to talk about flowers today, because I have something exciting to share with everyone. I am expecting a baby girl and I am currently in my second trimester! In fact, I have wanted to announce this news earlier but I decided to wait a little longer, knowing that the first trimester can be bumpy and unpredictable. And to my dear bloggie friends, please forgive me for holding this news until now. ;-)

The baby will be due in mid October; and everyone at home are really looking forward to that day to arrive, especially my four-year-old daughter because she has been telling me she wanted to have another sibling. When I told her that she will have a younger sister soon, she asked me this question innocently, “Will I have a brother next time?” My husband and I had exchanged looks and laughed. Sometimes, children asked the funniest questions.

Anyway, that does not mean I will stop my reading thereafter despite I will have my hands full with our two young daughters at home, just that I may not read as many books as compared to now, but I will definitely try my best. After all, Melody’s Reading Corner will not be complete without the books and their reviews!

    Congrats to you Melody! I'm excited for you *GRIN*


  4. Eva Says:

    Congrats!! And I totally understand waiting: my mom waited to tell her family about my little sister until her second trimester (we were living in Greece at the time, which makes things easier) because of the exact same worries.


  5. Congratulations, Melody!

    Melody, that's LOVELY news! I'm so pleased for you.

    I wish you a wonderful pregnancy!

    I love babies!!

    CONGRATS!!


  7. Sam Says:

    Well congratulations to you!!! I bet you and your family are so excited!! My cousin is also newly pregnant - waited until the 13th week to tell people, which I think is the usual thing to do these days.


  8. CONGRATULATIONS! So exciting! No apologies for waiting to tell. I didn't even tell my parents or in-laws with my second one until 20 weeks! They were so mad. But at least we could tell them right away whether it was a boy or a girl.


  9. Marg Says:

    Oh Congratulations!!! That's such exciting news!


    And I love tulips too...one of my favourites!

    Congraulations! That's wonderful news! And no harm in waiting, most people do now. My cousin gave birth 3 weeks ago, a huge but beautiful baby, though I think shes nocturnal!

    Congrats! Two girls are better than one (I know from experience)! Plus, my youngest is also a mid-October baby - it's a great time to have a pumpkin painting party as a B-day theme!


  22. Melody Says:

    Thank you, Stephanie! :)
    I agree two is always better than one... at least my daughter won't be feeling lonely without a sibling anymore. Plus, there's a good reason of having a party! ;P
