Ellie Belly

Haven't had a chance to catch up on the HS:MS photo prompts yet, but whizzed by today to check what prompts I've missed and instantly knew I had the perfect photo for todays'. So I've cheated an incy bit as it's an old one, I it took to use on a LO about how much I love to sleep, but it's one of my faves - so much so it's been my screensaver since I took it! Hope you like it too :) The prompt is rather funny given my recent state of affairs!

Tired: In need of rest. Show us tired in your space





Had a wonderful day yesterday with Ellie-boo! She's such a happy, sweet, delightful little thing, even when she's teething! I didn't get to see her toothypegs, but certainly got to feel them a few times! Ouch! How very nice of her! I was really disappointed about my photos - first of all, I'd mistakingly left both my memory cards at home, so was restricted to the limited internal memory on my camera, and then when I came home and viewed them on my PC realised something wasn't right as she was very out of focus in all of them. Checked my camera only to find that some how the settings had been set to landscape, so no good for upclose portraits! I tried to make the best of a bad situation by adding some soft focus and spot colour filters over them, to try and keep Ellie's face the main subject rather than the distracting backgrounds (which were perfectly in focus.....grrrr!). Still, at least she was happy to play and pose for me to mark her seven months in our lives! Love her so much xxx


Thought I should add that the blue thing behind her in the photos is not a potty!! It's her Bumbo seat!!
The Swansea Crop is celebrating it's 1st birthday this Friday! How quickly a year has flown. Looking forward to the evening and meeting up with all the fab people who come together there each month, it's such a lovely group. I've made some fabby friends through the crop - people who I feel I've known for years, rather than just months - you know who you are!! It will also be nice to actually sit down and do some scrapbooking - I really haven't done anything in aaaages now and I've got a creative itch that needs it some scratching!!

My parcel arrived yesterday afternoon! Yay! I've managed to convince Lee that it was from a magazine for using my LO as a solution on the Q&A page last month - yeah right!!!! Big thanks must go to my mum for assisting me in this devious ploy by sitting there and exclaiming excidedly "Ooooh that's a lovely lot of freebies", "they are very generous with what they give aren't they", "you're very lucky to be given all that" and the such like as I showed her my goodies when Lee came in from work this afternoon. Awww mums are just the best! They'll get you out of just about anything!!! Love ya Mummy xxx

The pix are dreamy. And how cool is you mom for helping explain the stuff to Lee. I've taken to hiding all my QVC stuff from the beau because I've got a shopping problem. He doesn't know the half of it.
