My Last Hurrah

I’m almost positive that this pregnancy will be my last, two kids is just right. But I’d be lying if I didn’t say I was a little sad about it being the last time.

The last time being pregnant (although I’m actually quite happy about that, I don’t enjoy it), the last time giving birth, the last time with a little baby and the last chance I’ll have to have a baby shower.

I had a baby shower when I was pregnant with Elliott, that was almost four and a half years ago and I decided to have a much smaller and lower key one recently, a baby sprinkle, with just a few friends and family. I knew if I didn’t have one I’d regret not having that opportunity to celebrate with friends and family again.

I decided on a breakfast at a magnificent old home in my hometown called the Ipswich Club. A perfect example of late federation architecture you can see everywhere in Ipswich, the Ipswich Club was actually designed by George Brockwell Gill, the same person who designed my friend Nicole’s home from The Builders Wife. If you’re not following Nicole’s blog yet, do yourself a favour and follow her…you’ll be inspired!

The Ipswich Club is located right next door to my obstetrician’s office and I ever since I’ve been having my appointments, I’ve marvelled at the home each time.  I just had to do something there because I knew I’d remember it.

My FUJIFILM instax Mini 8 came with some lovely accessories. I was terrible with keepsakes for Elliott so this time I put them together straight away!


Disclosure: I was gifted the FUJIFILM instax Mini 8 and accessories to use in this post.

    Wow that looks like a fun day! Congratulations

    PS. Ipswich is my home town too! My brother got married out of the Ipswich Club. It’s a beautiful building.

    Looks fabulous Eva. Love that photo of you and Lauren comparing baby bumps – very cute. Wow, not long to go now. Exciting times ahead! Look forward to hearing all about it on the blog 🙂

    Oh I love the baby sprinkle concept. There is nothing more lovely than gathering with with your favourites and eating some of your favourite things! And bumps! Look at you and Lauren! Gorgeous! I feel that same sadness too now my third is nearly one and not really a baby anymore. I’m battling my sadness telling it to quieten down because 3 is definitely enough! All the best for the coming weeks/months with a new little person to love xx
