I can't believe today is mine and my husband, Peter's 10 year wedding anniversary. A whole decade. Wow!
I don't have a daughter but I know that lots of my readers do, and being a big fan of heidi klein, (the UK’s first luxurious one-stop beachwear destination) I had to share their exclusive swimwear collection for girls ages 2-10 years. They are utterly beautiful!
So this morning we took the cute pictures of my toddler Alexander, just 2, in his nursery uniform, the same nursery that his older brother Oliver attended (and pre-school) and loved dearly- and we all smiled sweetly as my nerves were building...another day, another huge milestone for us all (after Oliver started school only last week)!
Oliver loves cars almost as much as baby Alexander adores footballs... the playroom is literally bursting with them (both).
I shall let the pictures do the 'talking'. OK, most of the 'talking'...Baby A turned 1 last Friday and we celebrated as a family (here he is with his great family friend Papu Andy (Grandpa Andy) with his beautiful birthday cake (made by a brilliant professional cake maker, not I, I'm afraid).
Another post, another beautiful shot captured by my husband Peter. I simply can't resist: my boys are my greatest co-production. Wrapping my arms around my baby boy makes my heart swell. He's my living doll. Look at that face!
I remembered something I read on facebook a few months back, today and it really grated on me. A woman I barely knew but met through other mothers, commented after her 20 week scan that she was, "relieved she was having another girl". It startled me a little.
