25b-52 25-52a portrait of my son, once a week, every week, in 2014.

I couldn’t pick just one this week. I really don’t get why is loves his Daddy’s shoes so much. Currently whilst B has been away they have made the most excellent toys (and are currently filled with sand from the garden- shhhhh)

Strawberry picking


I’m really late in posting these but things have been busy. A few weeks ago we spent a good part of a Saturday morning lost in deepest darkest Surrey trying to find Garson’s Pick Your Own. When we finally got there, it was about a million degrees and I was completely starving having skipped breakfast. So after the world’s most expensive flapjack (I would of needed to sell the baby for the price of a sandwich) we went trampling around the fields in search of carrots and potatoes. Sadly neither were ripe for picking but it didn’t matter anyway as Forrest had his mind absolutely blown by the strawberry tent (I say tent – is there are proper name?). Once he realised what was on the bushes and that he had free will, there was no stopping him. That baby is a machine when it comes to fruit. Everything went into his mouth. Ripe berries, very unripe berries, trodden on mushed up berries, dirt…

Here are just a few half a million snaps of a lovely afternoon spent with our beautiful buddy Alex.

After the strawberry farm you would think we might have been done with fruit but no! We decided that it would be an excellent time to introduce Forrest to his first watermelon.

He waddled around Alex’s garden like this all afternoon in a total state of bliss. If ever there was a reason to keep up with this blog it is to remember just how fat my baby really was. I think I will always treasure these pictures, sticky giant thighs and all…

Forrest & the styrofoam



I shared a little fragment of this on my instagram feed already but couldn’t resist sharing the whole film in full. Forrest has never ever shown dislike or fear for anything in his entire life, until now….
