i love the idea of documenting the kiddos' growing up, weekly photos next to a metre rule, height charts, monthly foot prints etc but i never seem to be able to remember to do the necessary regular photographing/measuring/printing. another problem is what to do with and where to store the resulting items. so now, when i give a book to m or other family members i include o-o's (and now wee baby j's) prints next to my written dedication in the front.
i've managed to take a few photos of the new background colour option for the shipping forecast and cuppa screen print. it's a true grey, i'm calling it 'dark clouds grey'. available here and here. please specify your colour preference when ordering.
i've finally finished the third edition of the shipping forecast and cuppa print. the perfect christmas gift for a tea enthusiast or radio 4 aficionado. I've misplaced the camera, the listing photos are of the second edition. i have two background colour choices now. 'stormy seas' grey-blue (v. similar to the colour shown in the photos) or a true grey. available here and here.
wee baby j is six months old today, his half birthday. he's started eating solids and spends many happy minutes trying to wrestle rice cakes and such into his mouth. here he is enjoying some broccoli. we love him very much and are so happy he's ours to keep.
sorry i've been away from the blog for ages. we went up to manchester for half term and while we were there wee j was admitted to hospital suffering from bronchiolitis, very scary and sad to see him so poorly. wee j seems to have inherited my grandpa's penchant for pretty lady nurses, we knew he was on the mend when he started charming them all with his gummy smiles. the staff at the royal manchester children's hospital did an amazing job of caring for wee j (and me and m!) and we are really grateful to them all. the NHS really is aces.
