Baby's Bedroom

Thank you, thank you, thank you for all the lovely comments on my last post!  You're all so sweet!!!

Now here's a post I've been meaning to do for aaages.....  Bo's bedroom!  

It was a joint effort.  Simon did all the decorating, sticking on of wall-stickers, and putting together of IKEA furniture.  And I did all the making (and buying)!

Here it is (apologies in advance for the photo-overload).....

We're very happy with how it turned out!  I love how bright and colourful it is!  We hope Bo'll like it when he eventually starts sleeping in there.....  Fingers crossed!!!

See you soon!

Bo's Monthly Photos (1 to 3)

Hi All,

Thank you for your sweet comments on my last few baby-sewing posts!  Unfortunately, I haven't yet got a snap of my big and little boys in their matching bow-ties, but I'm working on it.....  ;-)

I'd LOVE to share some photos of Bo with you today, though! 

Inspired by Pinterest (as ever), I decided that I wanted to take a special photo of Bo, every month, to record how he grows and changes.  I saw some examples where people had used chalkboard walls as backdrops, and written about their babies' monthly milestones on them.  I thought that was a brilliant idea!

Simon had been talking about painting a blackboard wall for a while.  He wanted it for writing food-ideas and notes on.  With a bit of nagging from me, he got around to it just in time for Bo's 1-month birthday! 

I tried writing on the wall with chalk.  In 'real life', it looked good and really clear.  But, on the photos, it didn't look so great.  So I cheated and did the writing during the photo-editing stage! 

So, here are Bo's monthly photos numbers 1 to 3:

I know I'm TOTALLY biased.....  But isn't he scrumptious?!? 

Time has just FLOWN by!!!  It seems like no time at all since we were bringing a tiny little newborn home - and yet he'll be 16 WEEKS on Sunday (photo shoot time again)!!!

See you around the blogosphere.....
