We have another adorable baby!

Our godson, Benjamin, who is now 11 days old. We met him today for the first time and it was love at first cuddle!



Gordon, Ben and Tusket (the Nova Scotia Duck Tolling Retriever) chill out together.



I love this shot that Marie-Emmanuelle took of Gordon and Benjamin. Gordon is smitten.



Godparents, baby and beautiful Maman!



Gordon with proud papa Patrick, who has a very cool thing that lets you "wear" the baby. Things they didn't have when my Mum had me in the 1960s. :)

Benjamin is a very happy, relaxed baby (with his Dad's red hair!) with very happy, relaxed parents. We feel honoured to play a role in his life and are looking forward to our next visit.

Babies, kittens, ducks... so much cuteness in my life these days!

  4. You and Gordon both look absolutely smitten with little Benjamin. Congratulations! He's is beautiful. Maybe the little fellow will grow up to be a Sens fan LOL.

  5. Your Godson is adorable!
    Gordon should nick the sling to tote Miss Emily around.

  6. Little Benjamin is very handsome and looks good on you two. His Maman looks fantastic, especially for one who just had a little bundle 11-12 days ago. Congrats to all!

  9. Congratulations! He looks to be a healthy and bonny boy! Love babywearing at our house, too. We have five or six different carries at the moment. Wonderful things for snuggling with babes as much as possible. :)

  11. You are very kind, Spitty. His parents might be worried if he had fur! ;) Although with four dogs in the house, there's plenty of fur to go around...
