The family wagon

Hi there everyone. Kylie is doing well at the moment - 13 weeks gone by and counting! We thought we better buy a family wagon if we are going to have a family, so here it is! In truth, I have always wanted a Ford Territory, so the family thing is just an excuse really. Apart from that, all is going well. We are finding the days a bit hot, but we must be getting somewhat used to it, as it doesn't feel as bad as it once did (above 40 degrees, that is). Talk to you all later, Phil & Kylie

Hi all, we have some exciting news that we are glad to finally let everyone know about. Kylie is pregnant (12 weeks) and we are expecting on the 21st July! It has been hard work to keep things a secret, and Kylie has been sick on and off for a while now (really sick while we were on holidays unfortunately), so it is a relief to explain to those who hadn't guessed our news already. We have bought a family friendly car, so we are well on the way to becoming a Mum and Dad!! We have both seen its heart in an ultra sound, and Kylie heard its heart beat last week, so it is definitly happening. I'm hoping for a boy, but clearly will not care either way, and we want it to be a suprise on the day. Anyway, we will update you as more news comes to hand....
