Oy with the poodles already

The alphabet project – U is for Up (too early!)

Nerys is going through a really fun phase at the moment.  It’s the ‘it’s 5.30am and I’m wide awake and ready to start my day’ phase.

Fun.

So my mornings have been fuelled by multiple cups of coffee and made easier by watching taped episodes of the Gilmore Girls.  Early starts are definitely more bearable with the Gilmore Girls.  I’ve seen all the episodes so many times now it’s just really comforting and familiar to watch.  And it’s provided me with some great quotes, including the classic on my mug.

There’s just something so right about watching the girls while drinking tons of coffee!

I’m not the only one still watching this show am I?!

The alphabet project – T is for Tiny

I’m still quite new to this whole blogging malarkey, and one of the things I’ve been really enjoying is finding and joining in with various linkys and blog hops.  I’ve been finding them really useful for giving some structure to my blog and for giving me some inspiration if I’m not quite sure what to blog about next!

I’d been thinking that I wanted to join in with some photography-based linkys so was really happy the other day when I came across PODcast who hosts a couple of different photography linkys every week.

So I’m jumping in with the alphabet project and making my peace with the fact that I’m starting at the letter T rather than A (which the perfectionist in me would prefer!).  The first word that came to mind that starts with T?  Tiny!

Nerys is 15 months old today and far from tiny – she’s right at the top of the height and weight charts in her red book.  Which makes me a little bit nostalgic for when she looked like she did in this photo!  She was a month old when I took it and time has taken on that strange quality where it feels like so long ago that she was this tiny, but at the same time if feels like the past 14 months have flown by.

She is so busy and so entertaining these days; I’m absolutely loving this stage.  But I do miss those tiny baby days!
