Alex is still not very well but we had great fun today sorting out his toys in order to have space for a play area in the study. It is time that some of his toys went into storage to make way for the new ones. We also had fun playing with trains, cars and spent some time out in the very frosty garden. He is gradually improving healthwise although it does seem like we take very small steps forward and several steps backwards at the moment, especially where eating is concerned. I really hope that his throat heals soon and he will go back to eating proper food as it is very hard to give him a nutritionally balanced diet at the moment.
In order to start my New years resolutions as I mean to go on I have made two scrapbook pages over the last few days and ordered about 100 photos for my photo album and scrapbooks. That should enable me to make a good start in terms of getting my albums up to date. Both these pages used my new Cuttlekids Tadpole Alphabet. This first one is entitled 'Making Music' and uses velum, notes printed from the internet and Bazzil cardstock. The journalling reads 'Alex, Sam and Tom playing Granny's piano!' and the photos were taken on 5th April 2008.
The second page uses photos from much earlier (Aug-Sep 2007) and is meant to represent Alex's attempts at rolling over and the fact that he liked playing like that. The journalling reads 'From the moment Alex learnt to roll over aged 4 months he was never happier than playing on his tummy and wriggling across the floor'. It has been strange to srapbook on such a large scale and in bright modern colours again and it is taking some getting used to, but I am determined to get going with it again. I just need the photos and papers I have ordered to turn up as I am somewhat limited until they do!
Anyway, Happy New Year everyone and I pray that 2009 is rewarding, fulfilling, filled with peace, joy and laughter for you all.
