This was Dante in the tin at 12 days old:

 ABOVE:  12 days old... still got a bit of jaundice... but oh so cute!

ABOVE:  here he is... at 5 weeks and 1 day old.... almost too big for the tin!  Still OH so gorgeous.

ABOVE: posing for Grandma....   Then his Daddy got in on the act:

 ABOVE: a rather interesting way to take a photo!  Neat though.

ABOVE:  he goes cross-eyed when he's trying to focus on something!  Can he be any more adorable?  NAH.  Impossible.

Today:  well I intend to take us all out.  I'm sure there is a reason why I want to go out... but right this minute I can't remember ... it WILL come to me I'm sure.


So... I just remembered we have a builder coming at lunchtime to peruse the 'damage',  so they can give our insurance company a quote on how much it will cost to fix it.  Therefore we won't be going out until this afternoon... which is fine I suppose.

Just means I get to do the housework eh?  Yeah, yaaaa...  I am THRILLED to bits about that.

SPOTLILGHT... is having yet another SALE.  The only thing that caught my eye was the 30% off ALL QUILTING FABRICS!  Might just have to go there....

MARYH:  yep, I think I can see a bit of the ginger creeping in too!  We will have to wait and see... I'm picking he will be a strawberry blonde by the time he's 2.  *smiles*

ABOVE:  a video.  It is very short... cos it was damn hard to find anything to talk about without feeling like a right dick! 


  1. Super cute!! They sure grow fast don't they!

  2. I remember the day my little sister came home... in a picnic basket!

  3. OMG how he has grown adorable just adorable! Sewing gear, groceries?, doctors. hair apptments. school shoe shopping, books and stationery shopping? just a few hints.... text me if you dont go out ok.

  4. Dante is just gorgeous Chris, Steve and Bex must be so proud :)
    Louise (Retail Girl) imports her stuff on TM from all over the place as she couldn't find the products here.
    I hope you had a lovely weekend and I am sure you will remember where your quilt is eventually.

  11. I love the photos of Dante, it gives a good visual on how much he has grown. I am surprised Steve didn't want HIS photo taken in the tin :-)

  13. Chris, just let me know when you want the lipsticks.


  14. Hey Chris, we have just gotten back from a 12 hour road trip from our holiday in Queensland, but I wanted to write quickly and say I was following you while we were away over the last 10 days.

    I hope Stew's workload on returning to work wasn't too too too horrible.

    Love, Christy xxxxxx

  15. Aww, the photos are fabulous and really put into perspective how tiny he is. VERY sweet!
