As I'm sure you can gather from the title it's rather snowy here. I'm such a kid I love snow, not that I feel the need to go sledging or build a snowman anymore, but it just makes everything look nice.  Showed Kai it earlier, I don't think that he was too impressed though!

It might have had something to do with the outfit I made him wear, it's a wee bit big for him at the  moment!

I'm sure he'll grow into it soon though!
After all my worry of last week, I'm feeling much better now.  I was feeling better anyway, but after I took him to be weighed on Tuesday and he'd gone up to 13lb 5oz I felt so relieved!  To top it all, I was playing with him later that day and he rolled over from his front to his back.  I kept putting him on his front just to make sure that it wasn't a fluke, but he managed it again!  My little man! :-)

Check out my nappies!

Well I've managed to take some pictures of my home-made nappies, and I'm very proud of them I must admit.  Of course I had to get the little man to do a bit of modeling for me, but he loves to have his photo taken so I'm sure that he didn't mind!

I've made the nappy so that you can fold it down to a smaller size, so it fits him now, and open it up more to fit him later.  I've got plenty of the first sized nappies, so I thought this would be more useful.  And yes, I did cheat and copy one of my brought nappies!

I think the little man might be getting ready for a bit of food some how, I think that he wants to eat something he can really get his teeth into (even if they're not quite through yet!) as he was certainly trying to eat his bear earlier.

I think I'll have to find him something more nutricious than stuffed animals to eat somehow though!

Nappy Making!!

I'm feeling much better about the weight and food thing today, Kai seems happy and certainly has plenty of energy so I can't be doing that much wrong, and there's no point worrying if he looses weight one week, I'll have to see what happens next time!  He is a very long baby though, 65cm a few weeks ago and I'm sure that he's grown since then!!  Mind you, would be very surprised if he was a short baby, people would think that he was the milkmans!!

I've been making nappies over the past couple of days, and I'm feeling very proud of the results, they look just like the brought ones and are a fraction of the price, the terry fabric was only about £5 a metre including postage from somewhere in Bristol.  I had a bit of trouble getting the elastic right around the legs, but I think that I've cracked it now.  If nothing else they do the job!!  I haven't taken any photos yet, need my little man to model for me I think, but when I do I'll post the photos.
