Happy New Life

by Waltrui

I've been a bit quiet during the holidays – and not just because we had a dozen parties to attend and a gazillion presents to buy. There's something else that has been taking my energy the past few weeks, something (or someone) very small but already determined to crawl its way into our lives. On a beautiful summer day, we'll whisper hello to another baby.

They say it's the biggest change, going from 'couple with kid' to 'family of four'. But I'm glad we're naive enough to take the plunge. I'm pretty sure Mon will act like a professional nanny by the end of July. And I can only imagine the amount of tissues I'll be needing when he holds his little brother or sister for the first time. Oh those bloody hormones.

Here's to a year of hope, love and new life. Happy 2017!
