Two and a half weeks seems to have flown by, Elmer is getting fatter by the day. Last week I thought "Ahh, I must photograph Elmer in that cute stripey outfit of his".. only to discover he has already grown out of it! I have an uneasy feeling I'm going to wake up from a nap and be the mother of an angry 16 year old. Better make the most of these cute baby days!
A selection from the last week or so then... Here is my son, 6 days old:
10 days old....
12 days old...
Baby in a basket - I couldn't resist!!!
And finally today, 18 days old... (these last few were taken with my gorgeous 50mm lens which I just got back from canon servicing after 6 weeks. Its my new favourite lens again)
I won't go on about how gorgeous he is because you can see for yourselves. And whilst he is still asleep on the sofa.. I should go and do something outrageous like eat an entire meal in one go.. woohoo!
I imagine... ahem.... I may be taking a few more photographs of Elmer in the coming days and weeks, but promise to try not to clog the blog with them. Normal service should resume in the coming weeks. Suffice to say, we are completely and utterly in love with our new baby and can't believe how lucky we are :)
Oh, that teddy card is a Happy Pregnancy card from my mum!
Poor Steven has done a lot of the installing and updating for me on this new machine, and since its the first time he's ever used a mac it was a frustrating process! Ugh, rather him than me, I prefer the fun part of playing with software once it's all set up for me.
In the meantime I've been trying to insert (very expensive) eye-cream into Nails the dog's eyes (he has conjunctivitis). I have never come across a dog more determined to avoid this fate... two grown people, four hands between us and still the eye-cream is mostly on the carpet.
Meanwhile, inside the barn, we are all ready for the arrival of baby Jenkins. There's not much space upstairs but just enough for his baby bed and his tiny little clothes...
And since its now officially spring here in Dunedin, a between-the-showers rainbow, ahhhh:
