I have decided to share photos of our little one, she is just too gorgeous not to share! This week I have been looking through photos and can not believe how the time has flown by! Here I am back in August heavily pregnant, it does not seem like 5 minutes ago!
And our little one, lying on my chest, just a few minutes after been born
Love, love, lover her so much!!!!!!!!! How she has changed! Here is Little J, taken a few weeks ago, wearing the bonnet I crocheted for her
How gorgeous is she! She is simply amazing, and so beautiful! And here she is wearing the Christmas outfit I crocheted for her
I adore this girl!
So this week has been a kind of stay at home, lets get cooking week, with a few bracing walks with Little J January means hearty, home made soup
packed full of root vegetably goodness
January is also the month for warming home baked ginger cakes, covered in yummy chocolate…
Yum And why not make a batch of cripsy cakes too, love these!
Hubby made a batch of cakes, his own recipe, a concoction of digestivey biscuity base, with a filling of whipped up condensed milk with dessicated coconut folded into it, and topped with melted choccie, all left to set, cut into bite size squares, which taste absolutely delicious! These did not last long!
And while not cooking, baking and eating, I’ve been browsing through some of our recipe books, looking for comforting new recipes to try…
I took a small selection of some of my books, and pondered over which to begin reading…
I settled on this one
As you can see it is well read I love this book, it is by my bedside now, and I read it while nursing Little J to sleep at bedtime, and also if she wakes in the night for a feed, I’ll read it while rocking her back to sleep, baby snuggles and a favourite book, bliss Little J is starting to sleep through now, she is amazing
I love Little J’s new dress I put her in one day last week, this is the first time she has worn it, now been big enough to fit into it, goodness me, how she is growing!
and look at those little shoes!
And here is our gorgeous girl, all bundled in her Winters coat, ready for an outing in her pram
Our darling girl
My dad and step mam came over yesterday, and my step mam so kindly brought these for me
The diary and address book she bought as she knows I love this kind of thing, and also because the cat on it looks like our Whiskey, and the teapot and cup are heat pads, you crack them and the crystals in them heat up, ideal for putting on crampy tummies and backs My step mam is so very kind, she is always bringing little gifts up for myself, hubby and Little J, and always buying my dad little treats, we are all blessed to have her in our lives
Righty ho, I am going to bake some flapjack now before hubby does Sunday dinner , do the housework and washing, have a lovely bubble bath while hubby looks after Little J, and then we’ll all get settled for a cosy Sunday night, watch a film, and I’ll continue crocheting Little J’s vintage matinee coat
Happy Sunday everyone X
