Yes, it's our fifth baby....



Aaah, Modern Country tunic, I love you. Can you see the fabric this gorgeous frock is made from? It's a grey Union Jack. I know, I know...L:O:V:E, right? It's not maternity wear but because it's all floaty, it just slips right over my baby tummy.


Tunic: Traffic People, Jeans: Crave Maternity, Boots: Clarks, Belt: Thrifted, Sunglasses: Boots 

This baby sugarplum is the fifth little addition to our family. 

Guy and I always hoped to be able to have five kiddiewinks. I can remember sitting on the lawn with him in my parents' garden when I was seventeen, talking about what we would name our five children. And now, here we are....

Makes me a wee bit tearful reminiscing.

I have sunk to new depths of romantic nostalgia and am listening to Unchained Melody as I write this. On repeat. Double dang those hormones.

I myself am a child of five, and I can tell you, that's one blessed baby, Sarah. Great parents, and since the apples never fall far from the tree, I'm sure your little ones are awesome siblings. You've got lots of little helpers too. So happy for you. And such a stylish Mum ;)

Good grief, Sarah, you look even more gorgeous than ever. How can that be! Love the dress. Love it over jeans with boots. Love love love. Xx

i am not preggers but your post is making me cry, too! you are so so so freakin adorable! i love that tunic on you!

Tricia said...

You look so beautiful, Sarah! That top looks so cute with those jeans. I'd say pregnancy agrees with you. If this is your last baby, does it make you feel sad to think about that? That's how I was the last time around...that's what I cried about.

You Rock that little outfit...
your dress is flowing and your face it glowing...
I had four of my own babies...five would have just as nice, I bet.

Hi Sarah! I'm a long-time lurker...but I love your blog and your style, LOVE that tunic, and love that you're having your fifth child!! I'd like 5 or maybe 6 myself (we have 3 so far). My hubby and I are from big families and we love it. You look smashing!
God bless you all, love from the U.S. (Washington State)

Sarah, I can not believe this will your 5th baby - you look amazing. I completely blew up with No 2! oh well. It's all worth it in the end, right? Best wishes. Liz

Sarah, you are so beyond adorable. Just stunning. It is fun to see how much the sweet babe has grown.

Dave and I both grew up in big families and loved it.

You know what, I was exactly the same...wanted 5, talked about it with my sweetheart when we were 17...20 or so years later and same sweetheart but I could only make it to 2! A pigeon pair, so I'm happy.

You are awesome! All the best wishes in the world to you : ) xo

Oh Sarah, you gorgeous girl. What an extraordinary achievement. Having had our 3 pixies in 3.5 years, I applaud you for taking on the blessing of having 5 littlies to care for. Full plaudits to you, Lovely. J x

You look beautiful and certainly not old enough to have five sweet babies. What lucky children to have parents who have been in love for so long.

fourkidsmom said...

Sarah, You look so cute. I can't believe you already have four and this will be the fifth. Cute, cute dress.

Mimi said...

Sarah, You look great in that cute outfit. Have a wonderful weekend!

Redlilocks {Swoon Worthy} said...

My first thought was OH MY GOD SHE CUT THE DRESS!! But I see it's another Traffic People number all slinky and rock n'roll like!!

Yer lookin' less Modern Country and More Rock Chic, I think ;)

So pleased the baby dreams are coming true! We are still working on getting to number one here - obviously need more practice! Now where is that W.... lol

Hope you're having a smashing weekend darlin ;) xxx

Richella said...

These photos of you are just gorgeous! Love the Union Jack top--that's wonderful!

I'm so happy for you to be looking forward to your fifth bundle of joy. How cool that this is what you've always dreamed of!

chris said...

Oh, you beautiful lady. I love seeing how happy you are with that wee one growing so big.

Karen said...

Ah Sarah! You are glowing and radiant. Pregnancy agrees with you. I would have liked to have had a whole soccer team myself, but it wasn't to be. However, God did give us three beautiful children and I get to teach as many other precious children as I like. I am blessed. I wish you much joy and every blessing x x

lizzybradbury said...

Just lovely!

I really want to have five kids and I started going out with my husband when I was eighteen :-) We will get there one day and you shall be my inspiration!

How wonderful that you can have the five babies that you have dreamed of, such joy and happiness! God is so good!!!
Love and hugs, Cindy

Dear Sarah, This has to be one of my favourite Modern Country Style posts. You look really lovely; the dress is stunning; and Unchianed Melody is one of my all-time favourites - it was my mother's favourite song too! So - a wonderful nostalgia trip for me as well! And all that remeniscing (sp?)about choosing your five children's names in the garden with Guy; here you are, a really grown up Mummy yourself with number five "growing" beautifully! Congratulations! - Angela

Megan said...
