Photos to Share!

They say you take less photos os your subsequent children in comparison to the first... rest assure that is no where near the case in my household!!! Poor Matilda has a mere handful of photos when compared to the hundreds I have taken in Ollie's first five weeks of life!

Here are a few of my fave photos from the past week;

Ollie wearing his new t-shirt, given to him by his Aunty and Uncle. It reads; Ollie the Octopus has 8 legs. Too cute!!!














Who could possibly resist this adorable little belly button?!














Ollie with his week-old friend, Hayden;


















Hanging out in the sling at the shops (yes... I was walking through the mall taking photos!!!);














And most recent of all, cuddles with Tilly this morning;














Aside from taking way too many photos, I have also been crafting. I have started my Christmas cards (not long to go now!), made the thank you cards for those people lovely enough to have given Ollie a gift to celebrate his birth, and I have started on a layout for Scrapz.Biz's Scrapper of Oz competition. This particular comp is awesome because you get more than a week to create your layout whichsuits my curent situation perfectly. Also, every participant to complete all 4 challenges gets a $10 store voucher... the perfect incentive to get over the sleep deprivation and do some scrapping!!! Poor Ollie is yet to have a layout made of himself... but come Wednesday night, he'll finally have number 1!

I have also just stumbled upon a new crafting passion... making softies... cool retro soft toys! I have bought a few books and have begun tracing and cutting the pieces for my first softie. Pretty sure my sewing machine is stuffed so it may be a while before I actually get around to having it serviced and sewing up my project, but I will share asap!

Well, that's it for me. Enjoy the rest of your weekend!

Gorgeous photos of my 2 cuties, Clo.
Ollie looks so contented in the sling. Glad to hear you are slowly getting time to create again.
