My sweet little love, JJ.
Oh, he is so adorable. A proper little gorgeous face which had its eyes closed most of the weekend due to the heat. My fam visited my Bro's fam for an overnighter/BBQ/England match get together. I was so excited to be seeing JJ again. My dog couldn't wait to see my brother's dog again for stupid doggy lovin (both boys, say no more). Belle wanted to enjoy family time and Mark wanted to stand around the BBQ, all butch whilst flipping burgers (because men love barbies and feel all manly whilst tonging food). It was a lovely surprise that our cousin and his wife should pop over too with their foster children (who stole me heart). And boy was it hot! Woooooooooooo 29 degrees it was and not a wisp of a breeze.
Overnight we had the fan on full blast and it was still boiling hot. I tossed and turned all night or was that because I promised the morning shift with JJ so that my bro and his wife could have a nice lie-in? He heee, the latter of course. Once I got that cherub in my mitts, both belle and I sat together in the lounge enjoying the changing and cleaning and feeding and cuddling. JJ lay on my chest - fast asleep all morning and we were all so content.
This is Elllie mid afternoon. I couldn't resist taking this picture, she really does look grown up here.The day got warmer and warmer and we all got excited at the prospect of the England V Germany match bearing fruit. Erm, short lived!
The cursing, the screams, the joy. The cursing, the screams and little pieces of more joy erupted from the lounge as we watched our team get a total and utter thrashing from the Germans. We played really baaaaaaaaaad and the goal that wasn't a goal??!!!.........see pics below for the fun that is doing the rounds on the internet relating to that.
Before we left, it was time to get some piccies of JJ for me to cry over whilst in my absence. Im not sorry, but I am so attached to this little boy who is a delight to my heart. We had a few moments with his eyes open this afternoon and a couple of breath taking smiles ensued.
Here he is with his daddy - all smiley for Auntie Kirsty again!
This picture makes me want to cry with joy!
And so we left after being defeated by the Germans (no shocks, there - its a regular occurrence). I slept all the way home as the heat really knocked it out of me to arrive with enough light to photograph this layout for my run of 5 layouts in a week - woo, go me!
Im off to go and listen to the rest if my New Moon audio book which will be followed by Cclipse on Audio before I watch New Moon on DVD followed by a trip to the cinema to see Eclipse. Im a tad 'cited.
