NO PLACE LIKE HOME

HOME AGAIN
After spending 4 days helping Amy and Ryan settle in with Riley I am home again.
It was wonderful to be able to help them. I had forgotten how much washing a baby can create.
This photo shows Riley getting some daylight on him though the window as he was a little jaundiced. Amy and Ryan's other little boy 11 month old Leroy(he has curly hair like Natasha's darling Leroy) -a spoodle is looking though the door.
I enjoyed being able to help out at Amy's but there is no place like home. Trouble is after leaving Max and Michael at home alone I now have to clean up. Oh well - that's life.
Thanks everyone for your wonderful comments on Riley's arrival. He is one loved little man.

Oh how precious he is! LOL they have a dog Leroy! My Leroy also was jaundiced (I had forgotten until I saw the pic) and I remember taking pics like this too, of him in the window getting sunlight. Everyone said what a pretty tan he had, lol, are people saying that about Riley?

Congratulations!! How adorable. We have a puppy growing up with our grandbaby and they are just about inseperable now. I can see a freindship forming already in this photo

What a lovely photo of Riley. You foret how small they are when first born, then it doesn't seem that long & they have out grown the bassinet. I hope the boys didn't leave to much of a mess for you!

What a lovely little man he is Alison, just perfect! I'm sure with all the loving and caring attention he's getting he will thrive, glad to hear baby Max is OK, I had a laugh at your little story, yes was similar when I went away and left Tony with Todd our 24 year old...what else can you do but laugh

Alison, he is so gorgeous. New babies are the best thing (trouble is they grow into teenagers-lol). Lots of babies are jaundiced, it seems, Sam was too. Lots of sunshine fixes that. Enjoy, they grow up too soon.
Hugs, Coll :-}

Hi Alison, thank you for your lovely comments on our Blog, we always enjoy reading them! No garden in the city, unfortunately, this is going to take some getting used to!! Just a courtyard and balcony, enough for our outdoor setting and some potted plants, but once I get in there it may resemble a pink jungle before too long! Have a lovely weekend! Jenn and Jacqui

Monica said...

awee little sweetie!
I remember the jaundice and having to have my baby poked in the foot a few times, so not fun to do to a newborn , melts a new mommies heart, huh.
Congrats on your new sweetie!
