Night Waking
January 1, 2010

Last New Year, we were awake until 4am with a screaming week-old baby.  Last night, we were woken up by a teething, grumpy one-year-old.  Some things never change…

Friends of Joe’s have a little week-old baby girl, who shares David’s birthday.  We’re thinking of them tonight.


Sparkling Eyes

David LOVES Christmas.

I don’t usually shoot with a flash: I’d never been taught how and I hated the way the on-camera flash made the pictures look.  Today, my brother-in-law lent me a flashgun, and I realised what I’d been missing!  I’ve ordered one and I can’t WAIT for it to arrive!  (Canon Speedlite 430EX, if you’re interested.)

I’ve written more about today over at Barefoot in the Kitchen.

Birthday Boy
December 24, 2009

David turned one yesterday.  While I’ve been wrestling with the decision to only have one child, he’s been eating cake, opening presents, and generally having a wonderful time being spoiled.  (Yes, his birthday present is wrapped in Christmas paper.  No, he doesn’t care.  It RIPS!)

On The Phone
December 20, 2009

David’s current favourite game is to pretend to talk on the phone.  When he can’t get access to the real one, which he does with surprising ease, things like Duplo bricks have to suffice.

Baby Driver

Another from the weekend.  The little yellow car in the picture belonged to me when I was a toddler, and I love that David is old enough to use it now.  He loves it, too.

Photography Assistant

David loves helping me take photos!  He especially loves “helping” to put the lens cap back on when he’s had enough of being photographed.  I can’t wait to buy him his first camera!

My Boys

Taken at our favourite soft play centre in Banbury.  I’m not sure what I’ve done to deserve two such photogenic boys, but aren’t they wonderful?

Wasn’t me!

Here is my gorgeous, walking, talking baby boy.  He enjoys destroying bathrooms with the help of his ginger sidekick, Eric.

Little Big Feet
November 30, 2009

David’s feet are now a size 4.5G.  They have always seemed impossibly huge and impossibly tiny at the same time.  This is the first photo I’ve ever taken of his bare feet.

Christingle Service

…and the best part of the Christingle service is that you get to eat the sweets!
