It's A Boy!

Today's Try Stampin' on Tuesday creation, has been made for some friends of ours. Who seem to have been pregnant forever! Poor love glad its not me, madness in the winter but being pregnant when its hot...no thanks!! 
She gave birth to a gorgeous baby boy Tom, on the 10th August. We haven'e been to see the little cutie yet as they have a lot of family, fingers crossed for this weekend xx
Anyhoos, the reason behind this image....Our friend is the kinda Dad who just does the fun bits, no nappy changing, feeding etc unless he is on his own with bubbs. If anyone else is around they always end up doing it lol....so this image just seemed perfect!

GOAL!!!!!

First things first...update on Nico! He is eating & playing now thankfully, but still hasn't got much energy. The other night when we had all that rain, he decided he wanted to go outside at 3am. So there I am standing in the street with a t-shirt on chasing a skunk in the rain!! lol it must have made him feel better though as all he wanted to do for the next hour or so is play lol!!
So thank you for all your texts, FB messages, email & phone calls he is on the mend xx

Now the reason I'm here today, we have a new challenge starting over at My Time To Craft. But also over at Inky Impressions we have a brand new never seen before image release & they are fabulous!
