{A Big ol'round up}

Apologies blog land I have been both enjoying the gorgeous sunny weather we have had here in the UK (making maternity leave that much better) and also just enjoying creating, spending time with the family and friends and watching TV (whoops).
Without further ado.....
My March and April document 2010. I have used some of my yummy new stash and also some older stash in attempt to stash bust!!
Then a little layout I pulled together of our first 'official' family pic. Maxwell not even 24 hours old! This is a blimming awful pic of me, and I did think about not posting it here - but you know what, I had just given birth and been in labour for over 24 hours prior to that! But this picture and the moment caught in the picture - makes my heart fill with joy and love!!
I don't think I mentioned it, but I nabbed myself a studio calico kit. *happy face* so I have a few layouts I've created with it. One a photo taken while at the hospital on the maternity ward. As the title says we were 'Almost Parents' and the other just of my little man not more than a day old (and yes that is pink on my little boys page!! )I also made this little shadow box for our front room 'photo wall'. Our first name initials run in alphabetical order - which I think is pretty cute and so not intentional. The frame is from Ikea if anyone is interested, I have also made one for Maxwell's room using some yummy sassfrass (yes SJ lots of Sassfrass ;)!! ) Will post pictures of that another time. In a little Maxwell round up... He is now in his cot as of last night, he wants to stand all the time!, we took hm swimming which he loved, he will be 16 weeks on Thursday, when i Put him on his front for tummy time he keeps falling asleep! lol, he went to his second birthday party this week and we are off to another on Saturday ! Also I have been reading up about baby led weaning?? I will leave y'all with some Maxwell pictures

With his 'Sophie the Giraffe'
Looking rather smart at the birthday party

I will try not to leave it so long next time ;)
