My widdle nephew

Well yesterday I met my itsy bitsy teeny weeny little nephew Cooper. Oh he is so cute and sooooo very tiny. I had a beautiful cuddle with him. Tassy sat beside me and even without me saying anything she was so very gentle with him. Touched him so softly. She even very gently stroked him from his forehead down to the end of his nose, just like I do to her sometimes (which she loves) and he closed his eyes and went to sleep. It was the sweetest thing. I was so proud of how she was with him. We had a lovely but short trip to Sydney. It was mainly to see Cooper, but it also happened to be the day my cousin's son was baptised, so we saw the entire family which was great. There was a huge casual "do" at my auntie's afterwards. We had a great time. And sorry - no photos at the moment!

We got a package from Lea a few days ago with some goodies for Tassy and me, and also a little present for Dave. Very nicely wrapped up with a fancy tag and all. I'm wondering why Lea is sending my husband a little present... When he opened it up it was an emergency raincoat lol. Now he'll be prepared when the next downpour occurs! Funny timing actually - if he'd opened it when the parcel arrived, rather than when I got home from work, it would have come in very useful that day!

Lastly, this is a little 6x6 layout I did for a feel-good mini-album for Mardi, along with a bunch of other girls.
