Advantages

The advantage of being a baby is that, when you're tired and weary from having your nappy changed, you can just shut your eyes and have a nap. Dreaming, maybe, of being a ballet dancer.


The advantage of being a parent is that you can dress your baby up as an elf and it doesn't occur to him to object.

See his appley hat? This is what it looked like before. Daughter 1 made an apple stencil and applied fabric paints.


And.... snooze.

All that posing for pictures is obviously exhausting. He's too cute -- looks like you are all having lots of fun with him!!!

And when he is sixteen you can produce those photos in front of his friends!

I saw that about the bridge but I will continue to use the expression. Gorgeous ones of both bridge, makes me want to rush up there, very homesick, and just to have a cuddle with gd who is smashing. I know I keep telling you, but you are so fortunate, Isabelle. Still, Wyoming cowboy will be here next month!

Oh , yes ! Take plenty of adorable baby-in-hat photos now , while you can.
Grandson , aged four , was finally given a strawberry hat by a family friend who's rather a slow knitter . He posed for a photo and put the hat firmly in his cupboard . He may have felt that he was a little too old to look cute . At least I think that's what his raised eyebrow meant .
