Yes, I know I am not likely to be accused of being a ‘frequent blogger’ but I do have rather a good excuse this time…but firstly I’d like to share with you the contents of the Fall craft swap. It’s always exciting to receive post when you know it’s not a bill…especially when you know it’s going to be full of crafty goodness!!!

Excuse the less than fantastic photo but I had to take it rather quickly as Bean was so keen to be playing with all the lovely things I couldn’t even get a picture without her in it!

There are some truely lovely things that participants have made, some complicated, some wonderfully simple – all beautiful. We were very pleased to have been a part of the swap.

For reasons later explained, we were sadly unable to take part in the winter swap – I’m really looking forward to seeing the items created when they are revealed over at One Hook Wonder. I’m already planning my contribution for the spring swap which I hope Nicole will be hosting. I’m thinking chick finger puppets or felt eggs, something along those lines…

Anyway, the reason (okay, who am I kidding…) one of the reasons for my lack of postings has been due to a delivery of another kind. In mid November we were thrilled to become a family of four, thanks to the addition of little Logan…

He’s not exactly what you would call a good sleeper…but I guess that can be said about most newborns, I spend my days in a constant state of exhaustion and happiness, frequently reminding myself that these sleepless nights will not last forever, even if it feels like it right now! Bean is, thankfully, a born mother and is nothing but wonderful with him, adoring him from the start, which only makes me love her more, which I hadn’t thought was possible.

Something else, which helps during the night feeds is this lovely poem…sadly I can’t recall where I read it…

“Cooking and cleaning can wait ’till tomorrow,

for babies grow up, we’ve learned to our sorrow,

so quiet down cobwebs and dust go to sleep,

I’m hugging my baby and babies don’t keep”

Too true.
