Oh wow HELLO!! I've missed you here.
I'm not even going to try to say I dont know how the empty space here happened. I know how exactly how it went down.
I weaned a baby onto food (which was such a big deal and I wasnt ready but he clearly was and loves everything), finished a sesquicentenial quilt for the boys school ( I'll post some photos later but its out and hanging and everyone loves it so phew), spent a lot of time moonlighting over at In Alfie's Room and did a spot of knitting. And Pinterest. Man oh man do I get stuck inside the vortex of Pinterest. Wow.
I cannot tell you how many times I have made and devoured this caramel slice recently. Pinterest is my recipe google. Guru.....?
We finally admitted that this little person was about to bust hulk style out of his moses basket. One last sleep heavily photographed. I believe I sobbed just a little. Milestones and all that....
Into a cot. Not 'The Cot' but one that fits behind the door until further notice. He wasnt quite sure what to do with the space. Laughed like a crazy baby for quite some time. Again-heavily photographed.
I knitted this vest (which took forever in 4ply) only to decide that I could not send him out in public looking like Wallace's understudy.
So I knit him a cardigan. Rather similar effect yes?
I spend a lot of time making tickle hands. And singing in kooky voices. The things I do for a grin from this kid!
I learnt that photoshoots are getting challenging. Yes I wrestled with a seven month old over felt letters. He won.
But I dont care cause he's the sweetest thing on the planet.
And I have realised that I am happiest with black or blue on my nails. A maintenace nightmare but I love seeing my fingers all dark and moody. Butter London has a lot to answer for. Another addiction! Sheesh.
So I would understand if you thought after all those pics that I'm only here to show off the now giant baby right?!
Nah. That was just a bonus : )
Henry went on his first big school camp. Henry has also decided to start behaving like a teenager which I guess makes him a tweenie yes?
Oliver seems to be going through some family position reckoning which I hadnt banked on AT ALL. I thought the age gap was so stupendously huge that there would be no bumps. Wrong.
So we are all good. Cabin fever, teething and hormonal tweenies but good. Chocolate fixes everything. And I need a haircut but thats normal.
How are you??
