these 'under this moon' necklaces for tk's lovely girlfriend for christmas (don't worry bro, i'll pick up the romantic slack for ya). saz was delighted with her gift and so was i, so much so that i ordered a necklace for myself with o-o and wee baby j's first moons. the package from amsterdam arrived in the post on the same morning as a belated christmas package from my upsidedown sis in australia, and guess what? my present from my sis was another moon necklace! she has my birthday moon and i have hers. of all the beautiful handmade items on etsy we chose the same, that's some spooky sister stuff... i couldn't be happier (o-o loves looking at 'his' moon), lovingly crafted and thoughtfully presented by a talented maker. i spent ages trying to take some nice photos, these are the best i could manage, apologies for the slightly grubby white t-shirt, i'm such a slummy mummy.

o-o - suddenly he's all limbs!
everything is slowly returning to normal after our ten days in hospital. wee baby j, thrilled to be back at home, in his highchair vantage point, is all smiles and poke-y out tongue. o-o, on a granny vava come down and with an indie schmindie hairdo is now a very much a small boy, he's noodle-ing out fast.
being in hospital is something i'd never experienced before wee j's arrival and each time we've been in i've found it quite a challenge keeping the cabin fever at bay. however, in the midst of the tedium and the ready meals, chats in the parents' kitchen offer regular reminders of how lucky i am. with that in mind, i'm sending lots of get well soon love to all of the folk who are still up on the ninth floor and a big thank you to all the staff at RACH for being so very kind, you're all mint.

o-o - i'm colouring everything that's white green*.
* he asked for a pen and then i found him five minutes later, hard at work giving richard scarry a make over. didn't seem to be an act of vandalism. he was really pleased with himself so i waived my usual rule about drawing in books, just this once...
no photo of wee baby j and i'm very late with my 6/52 post. we've been in hospital for ten days as poor wee j has had bronchiolitis again. we've been focussing on his recovery and haven't really wanted to take photos of him. he's feeling much better now and enjoying being back at home.

who have been visiting this week, so good to have two extra pairs of hands, this 'living-miles-away-from-the-grandparents, nuclear family malarky is just silliness) have laughed at my folly. anyways, the cards are in my folksy shop now. buy one and make all those hours of fiddle-y mc-faff faff worth my while. P.S. the brown paper backdrop, your thoughts please.
