my creative space...

Our funny little man turned 6 months old on sunday, the time has just flown by. We feel so blessed to have him in our lives, he's always making us laugh & he just makes us feel like we're on top of the world. Having a baby is such hard work & parents are always so exhausted, but the rewards are so amazing aren't they.
Here he is, the cheekiest fellow getting around.
He thinks my funny accents are hilarious. He loves mama's apple-pear puree with cinnamon. He talks to us when he eats his meals, last week he said "ning nong" (must have been referring to his dad).
He likes to suck on his big toe. He can never keep still. He rolls all ways & commando crawls backwards. He likes to wriggle out of my arms to get to dad/toy/dog/my lunch. His eyes light up when he sees his monkey & hippo. He sleeps so well & is getting better at sleeping during the day. He just loves paper, he thinks the sound it makes is funny & likes to eat it too. He likes to sit in the grass & rip blades off with his chubby little hands.
Our funny little man, we love you to the moon & back over & over & over again!
Oh & yes, before I forget. My creative space this week was all about making a shirt. A shirt for Huckle, he's modelling it oh so nicely for you here. I finished it today. I'm really so very pleased with myself. I found the tutorial ages ago & I've been building myself up to this day. I was nervous to draft the pattern & to sew with knit fabric. I did make a few oopsies, but I learnt alot along the way & it is still very wearable. Can you see my biggest oopsie? The neckline on the left is meant to match the right! I got a little confused & rushed the last sleeve. It was an exciting moment, don't you know. Anyway, mum says maybe I started a new trend... thanks for the support mum.
I'll definitely be making more of these, I think I have the hang of it now. Maybe some short sleeved versions for summer.
Make a cuppa & pop over to Kirsty's for endless inspiration.

I had to go backwards to find the oopsie so its definitely not noticeable at all. Happy 6 months to Huckle! Maybe we should all start celebrating half years too... does that mean double the cake allowance for the year?
