Totally Useless Blogger.... Rach gave herself the title but I think I can say that the crown is definitely mine!!!

I cannot believe that I have been AWOL for soooooooo long. But to be fair I have been a bit busy!
Baby number 3 arrived on the 2nd March, 3 days before his due date. I had to be induced to high blood pressure and 'grossly abnormal' bloods, but he didn't want to hang round.... so after a 44 minute labour Drew Isaac Stevenson came screaming into the world.... and to be honest he hasn't really stopped screaming since! OK so that might be a bit mean... he only screams when you try to put him down, so as long as he is curled up on my chest, or snuggled into the crook of my arm he is absolutely content and cute! Of course this means that housework and internet time are limited and I seem to remember a hobby called scrapping.... seems such a long time since I did any though!
We were expecting Drew to be another big baby after the whopper that was the Bear, however he was only 8lbs born, and at 4 1/2 weeks he weighs 9lbs 1oz.... still quite a bit smaller than Bear was born!!! We were also worried about how Harry would react to having a baby around, but he has surprised us and is very gentle and protective over Drew (nick named Dinky Doo, as Bear calls him Doo and he was very Dinky).
Anyway enough of the baby talk for now... here is a piccie of the little guy, although I really need to get more taken.... bit difficult though when I am holding him all the time...LOL!!!
As for scrapping... I have been promised scrapping time tonight whilst Rob is on Dinky Doo duty.... yey!!! I bought some lovely stash before I had him and can't wait to get stuck in and use some. There are a few LOs I have done for the Sarahscards DT that I can share with you now. These were made using MME papers which are gorgeous and thick.... a bit too nice to be cut into to be honest. These ones were made using the January kit.... I also got to play with the March kit which was full of fresh spring colours... I am going to make much more of an effort now to be back scrapping/blogging/blog visiting! I had a spooky dream about a friend last night and need to go check their blog to see if there is anything in it!

Great to see you back in the blog and UKS world - we've missed you!

Hope you're enjoying Drew, I just think it would be nice if you could occasionally enjoy him from a little bit more of a distance!

Love the stuff you're doing for the DT.
