Alex has been so happy and bright over the past few days and he has been so amusing. His latest favourite game is to sit in his bouncy chair and wriggle and violently kick his legs which causes him to bounce up and down. This in turn makes him smile, chat and on occasion giggle. He is still trying to roll over and in the space of 30 minutes today had rolled over 6 times getting stuck each time! We also had the messiest feed ever today which was a pot of petit filou...it went everywhere, all over me, Tim, Alex, the sofa and the floor...in some ways I think it is almost too runny for him. It was highly entertaining though. Today has mostly been a sorting out day as we went to the pharmacy, the butchers, the post office, the fruit and veg shop and the local costcutter, all with Alex carried on my front in the baby bjorn.
I have managed to do a little crafting today in the form of this quite simple, but effective ATC entitled unimaginatively 'red dragon'. The background is red, black and gold swirly paper which I mounted onto card and then edged with gold embossing powder. I stamped the dragon image in red onto white scrap paper and tore round the edges and then finally added a hand drawn Chinese character. Work again tomorrow, so no more crafting until Thursday at the earliest.
