I’ve got Autumnal images this week for our week 37 of project 365.  I struggled for photos this week though, not really snapping N.  Not helped by heading off midweek to visit my nan and various other jobs that meant I didn’t really have my phone out and on the go.  Here’s this week’s round […] Read more…

A first in…face painting

| Activities & education, Milestones

tiger face paint

I’ve never done any face painting before, but last year there was a huge sale on at an online toy retailer and  I decided it might be worth buying the Snazaroo paints they had on sale. Now I’m not that artistic, drawing wise, but my theory was that if N had a party, someone would […] Read more…

I’ve said before that my family and friends were a little surprised when we announced we were having a baby.  I’m not a baby person at all, and I stand by that even now (although at least I know what to do with children and babies now, so I can live with them, and even […] Read more…

| Food & Drink, Observations

It’s always good when your child starts saying nice things about you.  It’s not often N says much about people. Thankfully we’ve not had him pointing out people in the street and asking about babies etc, given he’s recently got a bit obsessed with sticking his ‘babies’ (ie his Peter Rabbit and taggy blanket) up […] Read more…

I love some of the photos I take of N playing on his trampoline.  I have to use my phone as I just don’t find my camera is quick enough.  This was taken while he was pausing for breath, probably wanting to tell me something.  He’s just always enjoying himself. Read more…
