6 Months

I can't believe Megan is 6 months old already. 

 Born on Christmas Day 2012 
 What a Christmas present she was :)
 One month old
 Two months
 3 months
 4 months
 5 months
Present day :)

Megan is growing day by day and is such a little sweetheart.  She has two teeth and is teething off and on at the moment. She beams when she sees us and her little legs kick wildly.  She is very much a Mummy's girl and watches Claire whenever she is near by. She rolls over and moves from one side of the room to the other and now she's started sitting on her own. She absolutely loves Alice and the two of them together are the cutest! Some of you may have seen the little videos Claire puts on Instagram of Alice reading to Megan in the morning or telling her nursery rhymes. I can't wait to see their relationship develop as they get older.

Emily's Prom

Today is Emily's Prom and we spent the afternoon at her friend, Natalie's house as the four friends got dressed together.  Emily, Charlotte, Natalie and Ella have been friends most of their Senior School years and it was fun to listen to them banter with each other as they got dressed.  I took over 130 photos but have edited a few to put up tonight. There may be more over the next few days.

 Emily, Charlotte, Natalie & Ella

 An hour before the girls were due to go to the school to catch their buses, another four friends arrived and we took a few more photos.

I will be staying up till 12.30am to go and pick Emily up again. I really hope they had a lovely evening.

Hugh is 25!

Today is Hugh's 25th birthday! Where did the years go?
I thought I'd just share a few photos of him through the years. It's been interesting looking through the years and seeing the changes.  In the later years it's been more the change in hair styles, piercings and tattoos. I could have put in loads more but I thought I'd better not. 
Days old.
6 months
Aged 2
Our super heroes

Brooke Alexis (our newest family member)

A week ago today we welcomed the latest member of our family.  My niece, Theresa, gave birth to Brooke Alexis - a little sister for Tyler and Alyssa.
 Unfortunately, she was taken into the Special Care Baby Unit but, I'm happy to say, she is fine and is now home with her family.
 On Sunday afternoon Norma and I were able to go round and meet her for the first time.  She is tiny and one of the most alert babies I've seen for her age!
She looks intently at whoever is holding her - almost like she's trying to work out who is who ;-)
 Theresa is glad to be home and Tyler and Alyssa are happy to have their Mummy and baby sister back.
