What a year!!!

The bad stuff:

2 bad bouts of teething, 4 colds, a febrile convulsion, 2 chest infections, conjunctivitis and a broken ankle

....and that's just the little man.

For us two there has been Curly Boy losing his job for the 2nd time this year, a burglary, my Mum being pretty poorly and been in hospital for a week or 2, 2 bouts of gastroenteritis, flu, chest/sinus infection and 5 colds

But the wonderful news is that....

The little man has now settled beautifully, has had a ton of fun, met some lovely new people and found some little friends, has grown 2 1/2 inches and gained a kilo, had his 2nd birthday and has finally started saying a few words.

Best of all, we have now got to know and love the loveliest little boy ever. He's bright, lively, mischievous, funny, handsome, sweet and affectionate.
We love you little man!


  1. Oh my!! I'm ever so sorry about that very long list of challenges you all faced in the past year and hope that 2012 treats you more kindly. Your wonderful news trumps all, though. So happy for your family!!

  2. Stretch and grow, as my Grandma Millie used to say, is so apropos for you. Take care and enjoy your sweet little man.

  3. So lovely to hear from you - I kept wondering how you all were. Sorry to hear there have been so many challenges this year, I hope the rest of 2011 and all of 2012 are quieter but I'm so happy that your little man has settled and that you're all enjoying being a family...take care x

  4. I see starry socks! Squeeeeeeeeeeee.

  5. I hope 2012 is a better year as far as challenges. They say that what doesn't kill us, makes us stronger. Let's hope! What a darling diversion though......

  6. I hope that here on out will be better for your family. He looks adorable and I am glad he is settling in. Enjoy him every day. They grow up fast.

  7. So glad you are able to look on the positive side after so many challenges in 2011 -- I hope 2012 brings more of the good than the bad! Congrats on your little boy, he is surely a joy!
