Lily seems very excited about the prospect of a new baby arriving and pretty much informs everyone that Mummy is very fat because she has "Beeba in her tummy". Beeba will be a girl and she will mostly like eating chocolate, licking snow and playing hide and seek; a stroke of luck really as Lily loves to do all these things too.
Everything looking fine at the 20 week scan and certainly the little one is making his/her presence known by what feels like hardcore, 24 hour, uterine partying.

More Lilyisms.

Lily (pointing wildly at me) : "You are a talking mountain!"
Me: "But mountains don't talk."
Lily: "Some mountains do."
Some time later...
Lily: "What exactly are mountains for Mummy?"

Sound advice:
"You don't eat bottoms Mummy, they are big and smelly."

Just before bed, having 'built' a pram out of towels and blankets:
Lily: "I'm in my pram."
Me : "Oh, going anywhere nice?"
Lily: "Yes, I am going to a lecture on poorly seahorses."
