Wait A Minute Mr Postman

A quick update while the boys are asleep. Four weeks since baby boy arrived and things seem to be going well. We have some sort of a routine going, I at least know roughly when he'll want feeding and he's sleeping lots, though I'm sure that won't last - babies have a habit of changing their routine just when you think you're sorted!

I'm afraid I just haven't had the time or energy to do much blogging or commenting, so apologies if I usually comment on your blog, but haven't recently. Also blogger doesn't always update properly, so do feel free to let me know if I've missed a post!

Lovely Curtise sent me a sweet parcel a couple of weeks ago (check out her Hawaiian maxi dress today). There were goodies for the boys and Mama too!

A printed cotton height chart wall hanging, a retro story book illustrated by Richard Scarry (I had a jigsaw puzzle as a kid with an illustration from one of his books), 2 scarves for me which were wrapped around a child-sized little boy blue cup. I think it'll be a loooong time before either of the boys will be allowed to use it, if at all!

What a fab parcel from the fabulous Curtise! I remember that 365 Stories book from when I was a child! Mum always said I looked at it so much I was a fluent reader before I started school.
Don't worry about commenting, you know I'll always visit regardless!
Glad things are going smoothly. xxx
PS That mobile was from a bootsale!

Blimey, Liz, you have just created a new human being, you can't be expected to blog as well!
Good to hear that all is well. Just post a pic or two whenever you have the time or inclination, and I will get my baby fix and be happy! xxxxx

Oh Curtise sends the BEST parcels - she has magical powers! Would love to see an updated pic of you and bubba - if you can find two minutes to spare! Big hugs, Sarah xxx

Oh how I love RS's illustrations - they're so magical and I just know the boys will enjoy these stories when they can sit still for more than 12 seconds. I've never met a child (or adult) who doesn't enjoy being read to. The cup is utterly gorgeous and yes, might want to put that lovely treasure out of reach for a while;). I hope things are still going well for you. If the sleeping routine becomes a nightmare, I highly recommend The Baby Whisperer by Melissa Hogg. That book had me sorting out sleeping schedules for babies #3 and #4 in the kindest possible way (I hate controlled crying). Big hugs to you lovely:) xoxo
