Dylan update - his 2nd Christmas.

Yesterday, being Friday, was a good day for Dylan to help me with the decorating of our Christmas tree. Although he didn’t really feel very well, he was very helpful, unpacking all the baubles for me and putting them on the tree, very carefully. When it was finished, it looked very nice. He has already decorated his own tree at home so you could call him experienced!
Last night he had a sleepover with me while his mummy and daddy were entertaining some business associates. When bedtime came, he climbed into his bed and snuggled down. I have lost my voice entirely! for now so his Grandad took over with the story and then played guitar and sang to him till he went to sleep. I have a big clock in the room where Dylan sleeps and he likes to listen to it tick-tock. I think it has a soporific affect on him.

With help, Dylan was able to put the star on the top too!

…and after all that work, he got to choose a special biscuit.

The cards are quickly filling up the window ledges…

and I am looking forward to the festivities to come and to sharing them with you too.
I’d love to know how your preparations are going?

Star - with apologies to those who have already read this post. As you know I can only post here if I post there first and I know there are quite a few people who only read here and not there and vice versa now so it seems. I have made new friends, but I don't forget the old!

  1. I enjoyed it the second time, too! How can it already be two Christmases since Dylan was born? :-)

  2. I don't know D-Jan. Time flies doesn't it! He's such a little boy now and getting tall too. He tells me that he's been a good boy this year and so Father Christmassy is coming to see him.
    I asked him what he wanted Father Christmassy to bring for him and he said 'a present'. Fair enough!

  3. Lots of work in this colourful post Stella. Great stuff.
    Favourite photo, pour moi, is where Dylan is looking up, arms slightly outstretched. What a super profile; almost angelic imo.
    Well done!

  4. I too can't believe how fast the past two years have gone by. He's a little toddler now and still a cutie.

  5. Dylan is a talented little helper, and your tree and the cards and cookies make for a festive look.
