OK, moving on with the layouts. And, yes Mel, I had you in mind when I started posting these - I know not everyone gets FK. So.... I just couldn't help myself one afternoon and snapped a shot of baby clothes hanging on the line. I love doing these sorts of layouts - just about the everyday stuff. Where the layout is as much about the story of my life as it is about showcasing a photo.
Journaling: I couldn't resist taking this photo. I had taken advantage of a spell of warm weather to wash all of the little outfits we've got for the baby. Little growth suits, summer suits, singlets, and shorts and tops. Most of them have been given to us by Cherill, as Angus was born at the same time last year. They looked so cute hanging in rows on the washing line. I had to take a photo. And capture my feeling of excitement. Because I'm sure that in a few months' time I'll look back and shake my head that I ever could have been excited about row upon row of baby clothes hanging on the line!
Interestingly, even though my washing has doubled and baby clothes are so fiddly to fold and put away, I still adore Jamie's little clothes. It's great that babies grow so quickly in these first months, because I get to change Jamie's wardrobe every few months, lol! (Not so good on the purse though - thank goodness most of my friends wanted to get rid of all their baby clothes and gave them to us.)
And you know what I love the most? Hats! Jamie always wears a hat. My excuse is that he's still bald and needs a hat to stay warm. But that's totally just an excuse. I noticed with some consternation yesterday, however, that he'd pulled his hat off and was using it as a teething ring. I hope this is not a sign that I'm going to have to battle with him over the wearing of hats. I do have one with rabbit ears that has a nice velcro strip that does up under his chin. I will threaten him with that, if he keeps pulling the others off. I think he looks cute in it. But I'm sure he will beg to differ when he sees the photos in 15 years time :).
