Mine are anyway.

My 6-month-old is in hysterics because i've been blowing raspberries on his neck. To him I am brilliant and hillarious. I find his adoration quite life affirming. And he looks particularly cute in his big knitted green hoodie.

no they are crying shitting unpleasant leaches that drain you of your very lifes bloody and all your cash and resources.

Kathyis6incheshigh Thu 30-Oct-08 13:56:44

well ok Custy but they do all that whilst looking very cute.

Yes, but they are cute crying shitting unpleasant leaches that drain you of your very lifes bloody and all your cash and resources. The sort of crying shitting unpleasant leaches that drain you of your very lifes bloody and all your cash and resources that you just can't help cuddling.

I was sat here at work thinking how beautiful ds looked in his little corderoy jacket and little hat this morning.


BroccoliSpears Thu 30-Oct-08 14:03:56

I have to give ds extra kisses because dd is big enough to tell me to "gerroff" and run away.

CharCharBaGOOOOOOORE Thu 30-Oct-08 14:07:53

Oooh yes they are so cute. I love the way DD puts her arms up and says 'Aaaaah' whenever she wants a cuddle. And the fact that she laughs at my jokes. blush And her chubby squeezable cheeks. smile
She's wearing a fleecy jumper today that's a bit too big for her and she looks like a miniature hiker grin Tis very cute.

A colleague brought a baby into work the other day - he was sooooo delicious I thought I was going to gobble him up instantly.

You can come and gobble mine up morningpaper, he is a very scrumptious 11 week old bundle, but he is crying and waking up husband who is working nights.

<<looks down at dungaree-clad 8 week old sleeping in hollow of shoulder>>

<<breathes in sleepy milky breath>>

answer is yes

BroccoliSpears Thu 30-Oct-08 14:12:11

lol at milky breath. I remember when dd was tiny, when she yawned I would have a big sniff of her lovely breath blush.

CharCharBaGOOOOOOORE Thu 30-Oct-08 14:12:37

Mmmmmmmmmmmm sleepy milky breath <<sigh>> I love that smell. In fact when DD falls asleep in my arms after a feed, I still like to lean in really close and smell her breath. She's 14 months so not really a baby anymore sad It smells lovely though, like melted icecream. smile

cyteen Thu 30-Oct-08 14:13:11

might as well make the most of it before it changes to lager and fags grin

CharCharBaGOOOOOOORE Thu 30-Oct-08 14:17:43

grin DD is beginning to get the taste for gherkins so her nice milky breath doesn't last long!

12 months ago I would have agreed with you BS but now I'm thinking custy is right.

Oooos stop it! You're making me want one! Mine's getting all grown up <sob>....

My dd, 3, is the most frustrating, infuriation, distracting, wonderful, funny, cute, sweet little pixie, there is. She wakes me up with big cheesey grins and cuddles and I love her tickle-giggles. All standard stuff. They are worth it.

I rarely feel broody, proably because I know I will not be having another one, but my friend's 7 month old was so lovely the other day, all compact and cuddly, looked the picture of health, sweet smelling, big beamy permanent smile, right in your eyes. I would have smuggled her out if I could.

It's a shame that they are so much work, and that they grow up, but it is interesting to watch them do it, I suppose.

Sky@Night I nominate your last sentence for qotw grin.
