    • I love that colour on him. The onsie came in a pack of three; from memory the others were lime green and a sort of pale lavender. My mother was very much a “babies in white” person and disapproved heartily.

  1. Love it – why should girls have dibs on pink, totally?! πŸ˜€

    Pink was my son’s favourite colour until he went to school. I recall him coming home during the first week and saying “I HATE pink! Red is my favourite colour.” Isn’t it awful how kids are conditioned into this sort of sexist stereotyping so young?

  3. Aww he looks lovely in pink and such a cute little smile! It’s great looking back on old photos of them when they were little isn’t it? My youngest, who will also be 16 this year, in May, had lovely curly locks when he was a toddler and looked adorable… now he’s 6ft odd and towers above me but his hair still has this quiff at the front! It reminds me of the fact that he’s still so young really! πŸ™‚

    • Thanks πŸ™‚ Mine was such a baldie when he was little – I was always a little envious of babies with curly hair. It ramps up the totally adorable factor by the power of about 10.
