Point + Shoot - 1/52

Point + shoot - our weekend in pictures

The New Year is here and one thing I want to do is take more photographs so I am joining a number of photo linkies, including this one - Point + Shoot.

So this is detailing the weekend. The weekend after New Year. The weekend where we did very little. I was ill and it was just good to sit about the house and do nothing after spending every day for the past two weeks travelling up and down the country.


One of Molly's most recent party tricks is to stand on her head and feet with her bum in the air. Is this a sign of her wanting to stand? Is she just playing? Whatever she is doing it is cute.



Over the festive period we spent so much time with family and friends that Molly did not get to nap much during the day. I was worried she would get into the habit of not napping and that my days of naps were gone. I need not have worried. Not only did she take a nap, she did so by lying on top of me, something she very rarely ever does. I cherished every minute of having her snoring on me.

Bath times are important times for us as it is a time that Molly just loves so much. Even in the hospital the midwife commented on how relaxed she was in water. She very rarely ever cried when in water and so when she got a bit grumpy during the weekend I popped her in the bath and she instantly cheered up.


Christmas meant lots of new toys but no time to play with them. This was the first time Molly had really gotten to look at the Playmobil zoo that she got from her Great Granny and she seems to really like it. I was so looking forward to having time with her to play with her toys and so it was great that we finally managed to do this.



I love this picture. It was snack time and this picture looks like she is daring me to take her banana away!

So that was our weekend. Nothing happened. We barely left the house. It was pretty uneventful but nice to get to spend it in the house.
