Stills - A Weekly Collection








1. Fresh vibrant blooms from my beautiful sister Amy.
2. A box full of AMAZING food that was left on our door step by my darling friend Eliza. We have been so very well looked after by our family, friends and neighbours - we've cooked dinner once in the past week (royal 'we' - Dave cooked) yet have eaten nutritious feats for lunch and dinner every single day.
3. Baby knits. Seriously, I can't get enough. Babies are kind of like dolls, right?
4. Smiles. Some might like to think it's gas, but i like to think it's love.
5. There's been a lot of story tine happening around here. A good way of keeping the children stationary for a few minutes.
6. The end of a shamelessly unceremonious mothers day. Soft cheeses by candle light- good enough for me... but next year i'd like at least one kid made card, please!
7. She and I.
Sorry I missed last week and didn't visit your blogs the week before- such rudeness on my part!

If you still posted your weekly stills last week- feel free to link them in here along with this weeks, i'd love to see what you've been up to.

  6. I think you can give yourself a little bit of a break on the blogging front, new mum again. How lovely to have such wonderful friends. And your new bubba is just gorgeous, of course she's smiling. I always those little smiles as smiles, not gas. x

  7. I LOVE that last photo of you and your Baby Doll. And baby knits - I want a thousand of them for this one. A thousand! Also, my Tristan (3rd) smiled within a few days of birth, NOT gas, a genuine smile, and knowing him now, you wouldn't doubt it! As a baby, the number one question I would get asked is, "Is he always this smiley?" So pooh pooh to gas, what a beautiful smile you have Elke!

  26. Beautiful photos, especially the last one. It's lovely that your friends, family and neighbours are looking after you with meals. I'm organising a "meal drop" rota for a friend who gave birth to number 4 last week. It's fab having food dropped off when you've got a new baby in the house! Take care. x
