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!
