Still alive

 I was feeling very daunted before Angus was born, I honestly didn't know how I'd cope with 2 children under 2 years.  I have to remind myself now that when I was heavily pregnant there would be no way I could manage 2 under 2 at that time.  But I'm not pregnant now, I have lots more energy and a little boy who's pretty easy going. 

Tamsyn is getting used to having a little brother (he's 7 weeks old now, how did that happen?!), and even helps me burp him by patting him on the back when I do.  She loves to kiss him, and put his dummy in when he wants it, and points to his nose....  stop me now before I get too gooey....

Mealtimes with Tamsyn have always been good, and now we have company.  Those bouncy seats are worth their weight in gold, we got this one for Tamsyn and it usually follows me around the house.  I love slings but they make my shoulders ache after a while.

Tamsyn is at that age where she wants to feed herself, which is fine but this needs to be supervised of course.  So what do I do while watching her eat? (unless I'm eating too)  I knit...
Ravelry notes here.

I've done the odd bit of sewing too, mainly a flowergirl's dress for my girlie.

Happy days.


  1. how sweet that tamsyn helps with her baby brother...and how cool you can get some knitting done, that's a great idea...dzintra

  6. Seven weeks! Time flies when you're having fun, doesn't it? Angus is really growing! Looks like Tamsyn is a camera ham! Both are so cute! Enjoy them each day! ---"Love"

  7. You are amazing. I first started following your blog right after Tamsyn was born. I couldn't believe all you got done with a newborn. I can't believe how she is growing up (so fast).
    Now you are doing it again with your handsome little man Angus.
    Enjoy those beautiful babies.

  8. I so understand about coping with kids when they are so little, I had four under 3 1/2 !!! But thankfully boys seem to be quite content just bouncing. They both look great ...Karen xxx

  9. Two littlies and you still find timeto knit??? Seriously impressed here.

  10. I have been away for a while and I decided to pop in. So happy I did. It brightens my spirit to see how you are doing. What beautiful children and so precious. Enjoy every moment they grow up so quickly.
    How do you find time to sew and knit? You just amaze me!!!

  11. How do you find the time? I think I would be (was?) in my nightie all day!

  12. so sweet! I actually now look back on the time I had my twins and 2 year old at home as mostly good times as we didn't have to go anywhere! enjoy, the best thing about having them close together is the 24/7 playmate they have
