Look Away Now If You Are Likely To Be Offended By White Flesh, Fat Bellies, Stretch Marks Or Spotty Children

And if you're still here you may just win some DaisieDavies goodies in our little giveaway type thingie.

Simon and I have been preparing the children for another home birth (fingers and everything else crossed), Nathaniel doesn't understand where the door is to my tummy or how his brother is going to come out and to be honest although he is included in our discussions and picture viewing he has no idea what is about to happen in our house. Francesca being older this time is fascinated and asks lots and lots of very relevant questions and listens, captivated to explainations. Elizabeth, on the other hand, being older is appauled that some strange woman is going to see my bits! Bless. The change between six (when Nathaniel was born) and eight is incredible. She is aware of her own body and nakedness and is highly embarrassed by the nakedness of others. She will be excited when the time comes and hopefully her blushes will be kept to a minimum. She was very helpful last time and both girls want to help this time which is really lovely.

Nathaniel got bored towards the end of this session and Elizabeth became embarrassed so they decided to hide it with some humour and did 'impressions' of a woman in labour;


Which brings me to a little giveaway. In theory our new baby boy should be arriving on or around the 15th of September. None of my babies have ever arrived on time though. Simon says he will be here on the 18th in time for a weekend of snuggles. My friend Claire has bagged the 11th, she is convinced he will break the Davies' lateness curse and arrive early. If you would like to choose a date and maybe tell us why (if there is a reason other than randomness) in a comment on this post when he arrives I will send on some small goodies to those of you who guess right.

Now I took a picutre of my huge belly (also affectionately known as the penis shot) a while ago and someone asked about my pregnant bellies of the past, think it may have been Jude but I may be wrong and to be honest I can't be bothered to check. These are photographs of photographs so I apologise for the lack of quality but to be honest you really don't want to see them in too much detail (especially if you are eating at the time)!

This is Elizabeth (outside) and Francesca (inside) some time late January 2004;


This is Elizabeth (outside) and Nathaniel (inside) June 14th 2007;


Francesca (OS) and Nathaniel (IS) June 14th 2007;



And all my babies (some in and some out) June 14th 2007;


Just look at Francesca's terrible chicken spots :-(

There will be a picture of similar matter sometime in the next few weeks with three children outside and one inside for the very last time. I can't wait :-)

So pick a date, feel lucky and keep watching to see when the youngest Master Davies makes his appearance in the world!

Claire said...

I go for the 9th, just because it makes a pretty pattern -09/09/09!

Elizabeth, the biggest sister! said...

I just know he will come out on the 17th I've got a feeling he will!

Hi Daisy
I say 17th as that is Jimmy's birthday. I predicted his birthday the moment I knew he was due in September. Why? Because my dad's b/day is 16 september. I just knew that Jimmy would come right about then. Infact he was only 37 minutes late! Good luck with yours Daisy, i think it's great that your other babies are involved in the whole process and have enjoyed reading about it. xxx

Right 13th as this is Samuels birthday. That is the only reason!! You are brave with the pics - I've not got any of me at that stage!! Hope it all goes very easily and you cough and he falls out!

jennyflower said...

I am going to plump for the 7th of September, I have a lovely day planned for then and knowing you've had your little chap would finish it off a treat! xx

Bellyboo said...

I shall guess the 19th. No idea why.....M xx

smilernpb said...

I was eight days overdue so that is why I am guessing the same for you, which makes the 23rd, if I have added correctly.

Also - I think it might have been me who asked about the 'bump' shots as I had some on my blog that a friend took of us?!

Hope all is well xx

Well, as you've prob noticed daughter gets married on the 5th (bit early!!)
She was due on the 28th Sept and arrived on the 10th Oct (too late)
So, we come back from Wales on the 8th Sept so I'll go for that..make sense??

Becks said...

I guess the 20th. DH's birthday, FIL's birthday, child #3's due date(although she arrived 8 days earlier). So a big day for us and maybe for you too?
