...and then he smiled!

Now he is grinning at everything (especially us!)

Suddenly, everything has become very exciting!

...and then blew his nose....

Even the gas man who came to service the boiler has been giving me lectures about how we can't take enough photos!! So here are some more:
At two weeks

We share an interest in sleeping!

But still not big enough for the 0-3 months clothes!

Many moons ago we collected a travel bug from the deep south and had every intention of dropping it off somewhere in Leeds in the hope that a slight;y more ethnically diverse location would aid it in its quest to get to India. And I did try! Several lunch times saw a shifty looking pregnant woman prowling St George's Field with a GPS. But there were always far to many pesky students around for me to actually locate the cache, and so the bug is still with us.

We realised that this wasn't really on, so we made the most of today's glorious autumnal weather to introduce Nathaniel to geocaching. Admittedly, he fell asleep in his buggy minutes after we left the house, but we enjoyed an easy find in a little out of the way graveyard which we knew off but had never been into, and a lovely sunshiny walk.

Today Nathaniel sneezed.....

Actually, he didn't, but we are under strict instructions from Nimmy that we need to post about his every move and put up photos of everything so that she doesn't miss anything. To be honest, theres not much to miss yet - he does a good line in sleeping, eating and having his nappy changed. And not all of those activities are so great for photos! But here are some to start with....
