Joshua James

He is here!
My brand spanking new Nephew is here!
Born 14th May at 11:38am weighing a respec'able 7lbs 12oz. Momma and baby doing well and my brother is the most amazed father in the world (he can't stop texting us that "JJ" is perfect"). And I agree.

iPhones "best" quality (why is a phone so sophisticated with a rubbish camera?!) - he is literally just born here!

Here he is a few hours later, filling put the squishy and puffyness - he heeeeeeeeee....I LOVES!
Ive been on tenterhooks the moment her due date came and went. In fact, last night I had a brilliant nights sleep knowing that he was in the world and glowing pink, squished and alert.

Im dying for some more pictures from my Bro and I can't tell you how fast I want tomorrow to arrive so I can pop over and see him and hold him and begin to idolise him (ok, I idolise him already!). Ive waited a long time to hold a family baby and I won't lie when I say that I've been feeling broody of late too.

So last night Mark, myself, Belle and my parents "wet the babies head" with a glass or two of Nasti Spumante with tropical fruit. Our poor mans bucks fizz was GORGEOUS and I got tiddly after one glass. Don't my mum and dad look super delighted? There has been tears from both of them today, they are over the moon.

And lastly a quick make card that I made using Banana Frogs flower from the Super Dreamy stamp set and the "thanks" from the Flowery Thoughts set

Im in love with rippling ribbon right now, I might do a quick tutorial on it this weekend (after baby cuddles and sighs of adoration, of course!)
