At last, I am free!

The big finish On 28th December, Jude turned 18 months old.  He can walk (he can run and climb for that matter),  he can (very nearly) talk, AND, he has teeth. LOADS of them! He’s a proper little grown up lad, really.  For the last 6 months, I have still been breastfeeding him, but only…

These boots are made for walkin’

(When breastfeeding sucks…

Boys grab their willies

Being a dreadful mother / succumbing to a Jumperoo Whilst pregnant, I decided to sew and make a lot of the items for Jude’s bedroom myself; curtains, cushion covers, baby mobile etc, and generaly be a bit of a domestic goddess.
