Then and Now

Marthie did a post on her scrumptious young man growing up.
I really cannot comment too much because the fact that this tiny human being has filled such a void in my life, gets me all teary eyed.
So what I'll say is that I love you so very much my little boy!

And now

Jordan's nursery

It dawned on me that I never posted pictures, or the drama of obtaining, Jordan's nursery.

Our dump, aka house, falls apart when you try to repair it. What started out as a paint and floor overhall, turned into a pull the cornices off, patch up the walls because certain bits fell off, yes you read right, FELL OFF!!!!!!, and way too many other bits and bobs to mention.

Come to think of it, it's not suprising that Jordan made his appearance early, when you consider that I was 7 months pregnant and painting the nursery, while my husband felt rushed and somewhat nervous that I was going to "park", his words not mine, his son on the incomplete nursery floor.
Anyway, here are the stripping photo's.

Somehow this blog has morphed into something I never intended it to be.

I never intended to have my every thought consumed by one tiny person, nor did I ever think that ones chest could feel as though it was going to burst, literally, with pride.

The last thing on my mind, was that I would take photo's and actually share them with complete strangers, who have become my internet sisters.

And finally, I always looked at those Mom's who eagerly shoved photo's of "the most beautiful child on earth", in my face with a little bit of criticism and cynicism
But anyway, before I digress too much.

Look at the most beautiful child on earth!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
