Make You Feel My Love

When the rain is blowing in your face

And the whole world is on your case

I could offer you a warm embrace

To make you feel my love

When the evening shadows and the stars appear

And there is no one there to dry your tears

I could hold you for a million years

To make you feel my love

I know you haven’t made your mind up yet

But I would never do you wrong

I’ve known it from the moment that we met

No doubt in my mind where you belong

I’d go hungry I’d go black and blue

I’d go crawling down the avenue

No there’s nothing that I wouldn’t do

To make you feel my love

The storms are raging on the rolling sea

And on the highway of regret

Though winds of change are blowing wild and free

You ain’t seen nothing like me yet

I could make you happy make your dreams come true

Nothing that I wouldn’t do

Go to the ends of the earth for you

To make you feel my love

To make you feel my love

And I will always Make you feel my love, My Son James Aiden Crimp

Cub is finally here….x


A Journey

I was already pregnant when I took this picture

Those two pink lines showed up straight away

I needed this to get a seat on the Tube

This is Cub at 16 weeks

I love our 20 week scan picture

And then it snowed and we had a white Christmas

Then I was 23 weeks pregnant

We had New Years at Home because Pete was ill

Then I was as big as a polar bear

25 Weeks

26 weeks

Then Pete got in on the action

10 Weeks left at work

Pete and I went on a date

All of a sudden I was 30 weeks pregnant

And we only had 5 weeks left at work

I bloody love Nutella

32 weeks pregnant

Then we showed ourselves off at a photo shoot

We had lunch with friends at 35 weeks

We got spoilt at our wonderful baby shower

I got a baby friendly haircut…

It was sunny for my 1st day of maternity leave

Then we had a scare for pre-eclampsia

So I rested my piggies

I am starting to get impatient and so is someone else…

I am going to miss these snuggles

But it wont be long until I have our baby in my arms.

Dear Cub

My darling Cub,

Time is moving so quickly now.

I didn’t think I would write this letter to you just yet, but I have this feeling that you are going to be here sooner than we think. So I am writing to you now because I need and want you to know how I am feeling now.

I know that once I finish this letter, you will be over due by 10 days…

But that will be OK, I’ve waited so long for you already, just knowing you will be here eventually is keeping me going.

I finished work last week and this week has been all about sorting out the little bits I needed to get done before you arrived. Cub, they call this nesting.

You gave me a couple of panics with some pains on Wednesday night, but I think You are just letting me know that you are excited to be here soon.

I am so, so excited for you to be here. Your Daddy is very excited too. I don’t think he realises how much he loves you already, but I can see it Cub. His eyes say it all, as much as he is apprehensive about your arrival, he is equally just wanting you here.

I’ve put a sweepstake up for people to guess your Sex, weight and the date you will arrive, its proved very popular.

Your nursery is ready, we are stocked up with food.

Bags are packed, clothes washed.

People have been told what to do when that time comes.

Were all waiting for you Cub.

In safe hands

These hands will guide you through life

I hope your journey to us is a good, safe one. Don’t worry about me, my pain will go when I see you. Just get to us well.

The next time we see you, you’ll be in our arms.

And then we can start our lives together.


Be safe my Cub, were so close now.

All my love, forever,

Mama x

Limitless undying love which
shines around me like a million suns
It calls me on and on across the universe


As inspired by Accidentally Kle I am going to be holding a baby sweepstake to see if anyone can correctly guess the Sex, weight, and date that Cub Crimp will be making an appearance.

All you have to do is leave a comment and let me know your guess.

The winner(s) will win a scratchcard (sorry only UK scratchcards) but why not have a go for the fun of it! (You will have to guess either the correct weight or date, no prizes for correct sex – what do you think I am, made of money???)

Now to help you on your way, here is some information that might help your guess:

I am 37 weeks +2  (5/4/11) and measuring as such.

I am due on the 24th April.

I was born on time and Pete was 4 weeks early.

I was 6lbs 10oz at birth and Pete was an Ickle 4lbs 6oz

I am one of 5 girls in my family of 8 and Pete is the only boy with 3 sisters.

If you don’t want to leave a comment, email me @ and I’ll add you to the comments.

So get your thinking caps on and get guessing 🙂
