This Boy …

… is four months old today. Time flies!

… is full of cold and breaking my heart every time he goes “HAAAAAOOOOOOOOOOOOWWWW” in pain after he coughs :-(

… thinks that Calpol is just as disgusting as I think it is (that’s my boy. Although I wish he was a little easier to administer it to!)

… is super duper at holding things and using his hands

… is totally dotty about his daddy

… is allowed on Lovely Blanket for photo purposes only

… is teething (urgh)

… is currently asleep allowing me time to sew in the ends on my crochet which I have not forgotten that I promised to share, but I haven’t photographed it yet as all my time has been spent caring for Poorly Boy.

… is actually starting to stir as it approaches 3 hours since previous feed … hmm best get ready to go up and see to him :-)

p.s – yes the snowflakes in my last post are real! I took the photo through my window on my little camera, my big camera wasn’t interested. I do live on that steep hill, it is a Challenge but I’m pretty confident we won’t get flooded! Yes I do have some yak trax to go on my shoes but I can’t find them, however I have some snowboots which are pretty good for keeping me upright :-)

  1. Hi there, after seeing your snowflake picture I have just been out in my garden trying to emulate it. I am pleased with the results, but I love how you can see distinctly different shapes in yours. I have made mine black and white and that really helped to define them. I will try and post them later this week so you can compare if you want to. My word, your street really IS steep isn’t it!

  2. It must be really hard pushing a pram in this weather up such a steep street . I imagine it’s a nightmare parking a car. I love to read your blog and am so happy that you find time to do it.

  3. Poor TTB and poor you and Andy, sympathy all around – hope he’s feeling better soon. You’ve got much further on with your sunburst squares blanket than I have with mine but I’ve picked the squares up again tonight. Mine is eventualy destined for SIBOL and it was a challenge to myself to make a nice blanket AND join it. I’ve been practicing Priscilla Hewitt’s flat braid join and it isn’t as difficult as I first thought it would be but I’ve only rehearsed it so far so keep your fingers crossed for me when I get round to doing the actual join. Pity TTB is a little too small to frolic in the snow at the moment – wonder if he’ll be like Lucy’s Little B was last year?

  4. Lovely baby, lovely blanket for photo purposes only. I’m sorry he’s been poorly ~ we’ve had it all here in New England these past few weeks. Four grands all under the age of 5 and each and every one has been stricken with cough, cold, flu-ish type things. Poor, poor little ones…especially the very young like yours. Sending healing wishes!

  6. Poor little boy and poor you! It’s awful when they’re ill and this weather is doing nothing for little snuffly noses. I have a little girl who is five months old :) I know too well how it feels, so have some hugs!

  7. Hello, thank you for your comment on my blog. TTB looks gorgeous, as ever. Hope he’s feeling better and you’re getting a break from it. The Little Man had a cold a couple of weeks ago and it’s so sad. I can’t believe you and TTB don’t like Calpol – my Little Man’s eyes light up with excitement if he sees the bottle! Abigail x

  8. My daughter’s little girl Emily is a few days older than your little boy so I follow your blog with interest! She tells me that Emily will not take the sugar free Calpol at any price but she managed to find the original sort with sugar in it which Em will take, albeit still slightly reluctantly. But sugar-free? Instant spitting out. Hmmm, does this tell us something about sweeteners, lol? I know there is the great antisugar movement at the moment but at least we know what sugar is, unlike many of the sweeteners these days. So, if you can bear to, that may be worth a try.
    Hope he feels better soon!
