THE OWNER OF THESE LITTLE FAT HANDS

BABYSITTING
For 2 days a week for at least the next three months
I will be babysitting the owner of these little fat hands
Guess who it is?

Yes sweet little Riley.


Amy had the opportunity to go back to work for a few months for 4 days a week, so Riley will go to crèche 2 days a week and me for 2 days.Riley is now 6 months old and at a fun stage. He has his 2 bottom teeth and his 2 top ones are trying to come through. .He sits up by himself and has also recently started on solids. So far he loves his rice cereal, banana, potato and adores pumpkin

It will be fun watching all the changes over the next
three months, so long as he does some of this too - sleeping.

Hi Alison,
What sweet pictures of Riley and how lovely for you.
It made me laugh when you mentioned rice cereal, I remember when my daughter first started eating that ages ago. Have a blast (I know you will). Lovely music ~ Twinkle, twinkle little star - magical!

Oh I so miss that age! Well, except for the diapers and putting things in the mouth and toddling too close to stairs/sharp corners... So I sorta miss that age =) But that's when you can squeeze them and kiss their little piggies and do their hair however you want - yeah, I miss that age! Blessings... Polly

You are so lucky to be able to have your lovely grandbaby, Riley two days a week. I am too young to be a grandma, (My oldest is 14 years old)and none of my friends has babies and I have been feeling baby deprived lately. I miss holding babies so much I am seriously thinking of going to volunteer at the hospital, just so I can hold me some of those sweet babies. Have a fun weekend!

How adorable! I am so anxious to wrap my arms around a little one again.....only 3 months to wait until my grandbaby make san appearance!

Lynn@ The Vintage Nest said...

Oh how fun for you. I'd given anything if mine lived close by. Look at those sweet pudgy fingers.

Kim - ScrapToMyLu said...

oh no, don't be jealous of my camera. I begged for it for at least 3 yrs and now it was my Christmas present, my birthday, mothersday, anniversary.....it's for everything this year. That's why I'm using my ad money for any new lens. My husband would crack!

Pearl Maple said...

What a darling photo. Congrats on getting the opportunity to spend time with your grandchild, even on the bad days it is the best kind of day to have.

Followed your link from Natasha today and ever so glad we got to visit your lovely blog.
