It has been a long time between blogs. For that, I apologise to my readers if I have any left. Things have been busy, as I'm sure you can imagine!

Some things have been going on, as follows:

Firstly, Elspeth is eight weeks old today! I can't believe it's been that long already. She's doing really well, growing and eating like a pig. She's on soy formula now as we believe she may be lactose intolerant. She's so gorgeous! She can hold her head up most of the time now, and she's really getting the hang of hand-eye coordination - I hear jingly bells every time she whacks one of her dangly things. (I don't care if it was by accident, it's still wonderful!) She also seems to be smiling at me quite often! A lot of books say it's just gas or something, but it really does seem to be in response to seeing me smile at her!

Secondly, I've been studying away like... well, honestly, like somebody who really doesn't want to. I loved my Ancient Myth subject, I've finished everything for that and I think I'll do quite well. But my Religion subject is fairly dull really; I'm procrastinating doing this damn essay which is due in two days... bah!

Thirdly, my mother is coming to visit this weekend!! Yay! Always nice to see her, and she just loves seeing her little granddaughter! Last time my parents came up, mum kept just going over to stare at Elspeth with an adoring smile on her face.

Anyway, for somebody who hasn't blogged in weeks, I've said remarkably little now. I suppose I just don't want to bore by going on and on about Elspeth - although I could!! Anyway, very probably almost everybody who reads this has seen everything on Facebook.

Hey, good to hear from you here and to hear that Elspeth and the family are doing well! Our grandbaby is 8 months old and it has indeed flown, so enjoy every moment possible with your beautiful baby girl!!! Tell Aidan I said hello!! :-) ((HUGS)) Oh, and I am also doing FaceBook now and it has indeed taken time away from my blog which I don't like, but FB is pretty neat! Actually, I've had little time for either what with taking care of Jaylon! Busy, busy with these babies, hm? :-)

Stace, you go on all you like about your little treasure, she is just gorgeous, a marvellous creation ..and you and Aidan did it all by your own selves, hehe.
If you space things out, the study and the work, and then just be yourself as a loving mum and wife then it can be me, I know :)
Have fun with your Mum this weekend, I am sure she will be trilled to see you all.

She is sooo cute..and it's not gas..OK some of those smiles are gas but so what it's still a smile right?

What is your dull subject? Maybe I can stir your disdain and make you remember why you wanted to know about this stuff in the first place.

Grandmas are special..stay out of her way and let her do her thing. Take advantage and have some serious ME deserve it and so do they :)

You will always have readers! Thanks for the updates and good luck with the Religion Studies. When you have finished that one, you can chose a more exciting topic, like the use of contextuality in modern literature.

Sorry "Intercontextuality" I think I meant.

How was your essay?
