Squishy 9 (Friday)


My camera has been playing up today, so this is the best of a bad bunch of photos…Hubby has played around with the settings & assures me that my photos should be normally coloured from tomorrow.

Squishy 8 (Thursday)


She hasn’t gone to sleep on time for a lot of this week…

Hubby wears Squishy in the evenings if she’s still awake when I get Twink to sleep. I love the way she’s looking up at her daddy in this picture.Hubby wears Squishy in the evenings if she’s still awake when I get Twink to sleep.

It’s been so hot today, so Squishy has spent most of the day in just a nappy.

Squishy 5 (Monday)


Well, it had to happen sooner or later, although I was hopefully thinking that it would be later…I forgot to take today’s photo. All was not lost though…I simply had to investigate some of the more obscure camera settings so I could take a picture of her sleeping without using the flash (which would almost certainly have woken her up). This was my first attempt:

Then some blurry ones:

Then I got it!

I’m pretty amazed that all those pictures were taken in the same lighting…all it took was fiddling with some settings (and finding a steady surface to rest on…damn shaky hands!).

We’ve had a lovely father’s day, pottering in the garden (i.e. Hubby doing gardening, me wandering aimlessly, looking after the children and letting him get on with it!). Twink learned how to saw up a tree into bits, and I melted slightly over the 3 of them having a group hug with Twink being so gentle with Squishy.

Hubby says she looks like an alien…she’s just frowning at having a camera pointed in her face again.

I’m having to be sneaky writing this post as Hubby is right next to me, & these photos contain clues about his Father’s Day cards…but I don’t think he reads my blog much, so hopefully I’ll be okay!!

I love my big brother

I've been painting!

For the record – Crayola washable paints? Only washable in the sense that you can get rid of all traces of paint except the colour if you wash the foot immediately…hopefully the colour will fade…I’ve had to keep her feet hidden all day so DH wouldn’t ask why she had funny coloured feet!

One of her favourite things is to blow bubbles and chat away to us…she gets so loud at times! Definitely likes the sound of her own voice!

Only my second daily photo post & I’m a day late…these are Friday’s photos!

She still seems a bit too tiny for the bumbo

Quality time with her friend Flora (Twink's birth day gift to her)



I’ve recently upgraded my laptop from a second hand Acer to a second hand MacBook Pro (there’s a second hand theme here…). So I’ve been transferring all my photos and have been amazed at how many thousands of pictures of Twink I have….and saddened at how few of Squishy I have. This may be second child syndrome, but only by default I think…every time Twink sees my camera he wants to play with it (a.k.a take close up photos of his own eyes) so I can’t use it as frequently as I did with him. In fact, I take the easy way and rarely use it at all if he’s around. It also ran off AA batteries, which lasted about 5 minutes, so every time I picked it up I had to replace them.

Anyway, I got a new camera for my birthday from my dad who was shocked at the poor picture quality of my old camera (I tried to explain that I’m just not a good photographer…I just don’t have steady hands!). So I’m ¬†setting myself a challenge. I have to take a photo (with a camera, not a phone) of Squishy every day. I may not be able to post it every day as…well I get busy sometimes! But I have to take a new picture each day. I’d like to do that until she is at least 6 months (7th August)…although then we’re getting into the messy photo op fun that is baby led weaning, so I might continue.

Here are today’s pictures. They were taken in bed as she was looking so adorable despite having kept me awake all night…she doesn’t look tired though!

As you can see from the black and white shot, I will also be playing around with the editing stuff in iphoto…lots of fun to be had! So far I’m finding it much easier than photoshop. Sorry if any of these shots are blurry…I’ll check back later, but my glasses are on the bed next to Squishy, and now she’s asleep I am NOT risking waking her! Besides…I’m not very blind ;-)

I’m glad I’ve started this…was feeling a little guilty for having so few photos of her…especially as I love the whole newborn stage!
