3 months ago...

3months ago I gave birth to this precious little boy. It wasn't a long labour but perhaps a little longer than the last two labours I had. Right now he is snuggled next to me as I have some time of my own. He loves to smile at me and talks ALOT. It's mainly cooing sounds but it's too cute. He's also started to giggle when he's tickled. Sometimes I wish he wasn't my last but other times I just can't wait for him to grow up.
I have always loved the look of canvas prints and when I recieved my very own canvas from Bags of Love in the UK, I was really surprised how lovely it turned out. The picture of Elijah was printed on a very thick and durable canvas wrapped around a wooden frame. I chose this print as it was a lovely black and white photo I took recently but obviously I needed more light and photography skills.  I really like how his features are so clear on the print and not grainy. We haven't put it up on a wall yet but I will do it this week.

Princess Party and a Tutu skirt Giveaway

We had a few days of celebrating for a special little (not little anymore) firstborn who turned 5. Quite honestly I am not a party planner. I think of things to add to lists and hope they don't get forgotten come party day. First we had cupcakes at Preschool. Fairy sprinkles for girls and choclette sprinkles for the boys. These were already in my pantry but if they weren't we'd have boring cupcakes cos I'd forgotten to buy any type of sprinkles at all. I ruined the first batch of icing with melted butter and luckily hubby was already out so he picked up a box of icing mix for me which was just enough for 24 cupcakes.

Then we had dinner at mums and my sister made lots of little desserts and cupcakes. The chocolate custard filled cupcakes were a hit. Lastly on Sunday she shared the Fathers Day celebrations with the whole family and we had a Tiara cake made up for her. I made the trifle cups and felt so very happy that they too turned out. The icing I sprinkled on top…
