A post on FB got me thinking this morning about how fickle people can be when it comes to children, and I know I’m guilty of this myself! When Dex was born we were of course inundated with visitors.

Baby K-D v2.0

Baby K-D v2.0

Well the magic has “happened” and we’re finally expecting a brother or sister for Dexter this Christmas.
