Is anyone out there?

Yes, you'll have noticed that there has been a lack of posts over the last couple of weeks. That's because we're off to Kenya tomorrow and every spare waking moment has been spent either at the Doctors, or in Boots, attempting to protect Maddie from various flying insects, general diseases and sunburn. We have enough room in our suitcase for one t-shirt each. And a pair of pants.

Reaching for the stars

We've left favourite hubby in London this week, whilst me and the Noise Box have a holiday with Grandma and Grandad in PonteCarlo.
The fresh Yorkshire air must have done her the world of good as she's since learnt how to reach out her arms to be picked up. I couldn't have been more excited if she'd recited the works of Shakespeare. Backwards. And in French.

Another great baby blog

Phillip Toledano's The Reluctant Father is a wonderfully insightful blog about, well, becoming a dad, obviously.
And his transformation, as he puts it, "from observer to participant".
Some truly stunning photography of his daughter Loulou, which puts Kate and my snaps with the iPhone to shame.

Oh, we do like to be beside the seaside

Even if it means a flagrant disregard for the safety our our child, as seen here, being walked along a crumbling concrete wave breaker in Bridlington:

"Get me away from the edge, and that big wet thing".
That's what Maddie's thinking. You can see it in her eyes.
