The Gallery is back this week and the theme is Memories!  Well as most of you know, I’m fast approaching the birth of our next baby due in September.  So my head is filled with memories of the approach to Little Bean’s birth and first months as a tiny squirming, pooping ball of love!

I really wanted to post the first photograph from when she was born but unfortunately I only have photographs on my laptop from March/April 2009 and she was born in June 2008.  All of her tiny baby photos are on my PC all packed and ready for the new house.

 April 2008 009

But I’ve chosen this photograph as it is one that I have always loved, Little Bean used to love laying in her cot with her cuddly toys and hiding underneath them all.  She still does it now in her junior bed – in fact when I collected her from her nap just a few moments ago she laid very still in her bed with three teddies covering her head in an attempt to hide!  The fact that her body, arms and legs were on full display still mean nothing to her in the game of hide and seek.

I’m hoping that our new baby boy is as happy and healthy as his big brother and sister are today – we’re really looking forward to welcoming him into our family!

    What a lovely picture. I love the fact that they just hide their face and think that means you can’t see them Baba does that too. xx

      I know, it cracks me up playing hide and seek with her! Today whilst out she was “hiding” from the sheep with her hands over her face!! Too funny x
