Family Photos

Hi Blogging Friends,

You will be happy to know I did make two super quick cards the other day...the first since Nicholas has been born, but they are not worth posting on here...pretty boring male cards.  However I do have more photos of Nicholas.  Not sure if you are sick if them yet??

The first one is of Ben and Nicholas when Nicholas is about to take a bath.  He is very happy in this photo.  He loves to have a bath.

The second two photos are of a little photo shoot we did at home.  You might remember that Ben has a keen interest in photography and I really wanted a photo of the three of us so on Saturday we took hundreds of photos.  Here are just two of them.  Nicholas fell asleep during the photo shoot.

On Sunday we went for a walk with Ellie and Tommy (our two puppies) and Nicholas, Ben and I around Stockton where we live.  It was a beautiful day for Autumn and here is a photo of Nicholas and I at the break wall.

We have a busy week this week with a midwife appointment, obstetrician appointment, Nicholas has to get his immunisation needles, our car is booked in for a rego check and Tommy has to get his stitches out from his de-sexing operation two weeks ago.  I hope I can get through it all!!  I have been trying my hardest to do two loads of washing a day so I can keep up with everything...I am ordering my groceries online so that is a big help.  Still trying to get on top of things.  At least the mail is getting opened on the day it arrives now!  I hope you are all well and I look forward to catching up on your blogs sometime soon.

With love,
Alicia xx

Blog Candy Winner and more photos...

Hi Blogging Beauties,

I know it has been very infrequent on my blog here at the moment.
But the good news is my Mum came this week and helped me catch up on washing and today Nicholas has decided to sleep a lot and I have had some free moments to spare.

My blog candy is well overdue being drawn so I thought I would get to that and share some lovely new photos of Nicholas.  

The winner of my blog candy is...

Congratulations!!  I hope you enjoy it! I will contact you for your address and get it posted out to you asap.  I will be putting up more candy soon hopefully.

Here are the new photos of baby Nicholas.  He is starting to laugh and smile now.  It is soo cute.  
He is five weeks old today.

Thanks for stopping by and have a lovely day. xxx

I have to apologise...I havent been returning blogging comments lately.  I have been cuddling Nicholas instead of sitting at the computer.  He is such a snuggler you see and I know he is going to grow up so quickly so I am determined to enjoy every moment.  He is already growing out of his 000 suits and getting stronger and more alert.  

When I am not gazing at him lovingly I have been doing a little housework, going for walks and catching up on sleep.

Thank you so much for your lovely comments.  I have loved reading each and every one.  I hope you are all well and happy.

More photos of Nicholas

It has been over a week since my last post...I have been taking things pretty easy and settling in to having Nicholas at home.  He has been a very good baby so far.  He is sleeping and drinking and putting on weight.  Ben and I are adjusting to the changes in our sleeping patterns and loving all the cuddles Nicholas has been treating us to.  Here are a couple more pics to share.
