A little bit of everything...

My apologies for the lack of photo coordanation
But here is a MISH MASH  of Craft, Christmas And Tilly
 
Of course... I only add the best pictures
 
This was a few weeks ago....
Tilly was holding Pop's teddy hostage till he had gotten home,
in the process of his absence, there was a lot of snoring!

I finished this little fello within 24 hours of starting him, he has been stolen off his spot next to the TV several times to be asked to switch his little LED light on (changes colours)

Ah, Doctor Tilly!
She gets so inquisitive around Daddy's Insulin pens and blood tester and can show daddy what he does after he has tested his bloods.
(type 1 diabetic)
so we decided to give her one of her presents early... A MEDICAL KIT...
of course within a week she has managed to leave half of it at Nana Mumbles or somewhere in the toybox.... it's case often gets carted around like a handbag.

Oh the cheeky little monkey!
she can't do wrong with that smile...
I love to see her giggling and grinning like this!!
and I know NOONE can resist these cheeky snaps

OO a snippet of the tree. all together there must be roughly 20 or so hand made decorations on my tree.. no specific colour coordination as it was WHATEVER was to hand.

a little red and white bauble

when sat happily waiting for Sunday roast to cook, and you ask Tilly if she is playing with the tree, she shakes her head and strikes a pose

ah, same day she pinched Pop's Teddy, his name is H
Tilly can't go upstairs to follow nana, or Pops without sitting in Pop's Desk chair.
last time I got a shot of her on the chair, she was half the size.

Ah, Today.... Hubby didn't know where to start!
we treated Pops and Mumble to sunday lunch... you can just about see Tilly's Favorite, Fish fingers and chips (with a mountain of peas)... she ate half the peas and most of the fish fingers......  Oh  and 2 chips.
 
Meet Capitan Tilly Purple Peg!
every time she had gone into nana's Peg bag... one came out and got added (often got pulled off and ended up on the floor somewhere in the house.
was nice to have a brew (cup of tea) and dark chocolate digestives whilst watching sister act 2

SALUTE! not quite....   close to navy..... need to practice methinks

See!!! more CHEEKY grins because nana had a Pen Moustache that kept dropping

which makes this little monster GIGGLE...
which makes the rest of the room GIGGLE and watch

HMM...  where did you get a chocky biscuit????
(she stole it of Nana)
we didn't see until she was half way through!

The BIG project.... 
getting Bigger.... Slowly....
It just covers Tilly....
But it is to cover HUBBY
and see the scrap balls waiting? (there's a couple more hidden)
 
 Still too full to have tea....  
may have some toast with Tilly later on...

Tilly... and parcels oh and crocheting

After a week of NO TAKING PICTURES OF TILLY... I've been doing other things...  and so MONDAY (was aloud to take pictures again) I took a picture of what I was up to  ..... Tilly had to get in on it....
 
here she is (Monday) "Helping" mummy make Daddy a Blanket to cuddle under on his couch
its one of those "reclaim wool from forgotten and annoyed at projects"

This mornings" Morning Mummy, Breakfast please" Mug shots
looking like a jail bird

Monday/ Tuesday  (both we drew and both she wore this outfit during the day because it wasn't dirty)
drawing picture for Nana Lou's Christmas Card (that was what she nodded to)

"hello gorgeous!"
asking if there's any room for a mummy to join her amongst a blankies and cushion fest on the living room floor

"er, Tiddly TillyBob the 2nd!!! that's MINE"
dunking her cheese sandwich into my soup..... then deciding to tare her crusts up and drop them in.... (I spoon fed her the tilly crutons)

I drew a clown at nana Mumbles house ( tilly decided to add to it after the picture)

Girly girl 9reminds me the bow has unstitched itself on one side... must get the repair kit out before its next outing)


Hello mummy
 A regular greeting that I have managed to capture on a meander to the shop

Today, we went to Nana Mumbles for lunch..
You'd swear all we feed her is Pork Pie and Crayola...
this was not the case... cheese sarnie Ham and grapes were in that bowl along with the pie...
Tilly just decided crayons were to be carried around too!

pulling faces across the room.

Now telling everyone off

Cheeky Grins at mummy saying the words "Porky Pie"

the reaction to "Is it time to go home and make tea???"

Pinching Mummy's hat its better than hers apparently..
she wore it all the way home   snooooozing all the way  (a good half hour meander as it is not easy going uphill with 3 bags of milk/ butter/ bread plus a few other bits including a new jumper of nana and a little advent calendar ..
 
speaking of advent Calandars....
Mum sent a rather large Sack of goodies from Kiwi Land.... ( N Z )
For those of you who follow Manxgirl's Blog, you may have seen some of what was amongst the goodies...
A HUGGGGE fabric Wall hanging Advent calendar with a couple of bags of goodies to divie (devide) into lots of little pockets... and a few  parcels for under our tree (when hubby finally says we are going to get a new one)
 
This will be our first Christmas here in Birmingham as last Christmas we went to Southport...
It was to cheer Nana mumbles up as she wasn't feeling strong enough to cook a big roast on Christmas day without her number 1 son.
This year, after a few mini trial runs and a rearrange of the kitchen table she is ready  and excited.
This year Tilly will be paying a little more attention to what is happening and not just pretty coloured paper....
 
time for farewells and
 
off to finnish tea...
 
Pasta bake  NOM

a doll I have made for Tilly a little while ago... I will hopefully be making some other mish mash dolls to go with her. (been playing and practicing when I can
this was my first attempt.

apart from that... Here's a TILLY FIX..

Andy Pandy!
some of you may remember him... I'm a little too young...
 
See the resemblance???
yes.. Lovely Mumbles (j's mum) pointed it out to me.

Cheeky Little devil causing Havoc in the living room...
I hadn't long tidied everything up
"mini tornado"
 
Cheeky smiles

Cheeky Grins


All for the little things.
look at that cheeky face...
jus want to squeeeeze her all up!!!
 

Mummy's Hat!
worst thing is,  she suits mummys Hats.... and mummy can never find them when she wants one
Bulls eye (Disney's toy story 2)
she loves him... He is as big as she is!
and she carries him around.
Funny to watch.

some snaps to keep us going

 
I've not been crafting as much as I would like.
Tilly has a habit of joining in every time I get into a rhythm anything I have done ... ends up getting crumpled up and scribbled on too...
no point in trying once she is asleep as I am not far behind her at bedtime.

***
 
Right... Snaps...
We have some phone/ tablet pictures and camera ones too...so there will be a couple that are older then the others
 
Ready???
 
This was supposed to be a picture of JUST TILLY,
but I ended up in it also...
 

Tilly snoozing.... 
All she did was climb up and sit like a big girl... next minute all you could hear was snoring

THIS MORNING.. Tilly and I sorting out her toys for Father Christmas to take away for other babies so there can be room for big girl toys.

Yesterday's Cheeky Cookie Crumbly Grins
 

Another one of today whilst sorting out toys
She forgot what the tent looked like empty

E.T came to visit...
Pinching Daddy's hoody.. its fleecie lined so was soooo  cuddly inside.

This one was taken a couple of weeks ago, Tilly chose to wear a dress....
I wondered where my little Tom Boy Terror had gone.
the dress got covered in chip dipping sauce at lunch time  (all clean and put away again now)
but girly looks good some days

this one is a good couple of months old now.
cheeky smiles!

Look at all these pristine crayons! this was when we got them and they sit I a tin when they aren't being used.
 they aren't so new looking anymore. some broken, some no covers and getting well used.
comes with the territory of being in a house of artsy origin.
(insert my cheeky smile here)
 
A Stint behind bars!
We have gates to stop her from wondering into the office and kitchen now (being able to leave to door open so she can natter to us and we can hear/ see her)
"I want in!!! Want to play with draws and cupboards again... PLEEEAAASSSEEEE???"

Tilly's BIG girl Car seat! For when Pop pops rents cars for Day trips Out and about. (cheaper and easier than owning a car )
Pop's is a member of a car club.. he has a card that he has to swipe on the windscreen when he wants to use one of their cars. (of course he has to reserve the car a few days in advance).
Last week we went out on a day out to Worchester to see the Cathedral and to WEBBS on the way back  (Hobby craft store/ home and leasure ... and the beginnings of the Christmas decorations on show)
She was sooo well behaved!
Able to see a lot more than in her old seat
and was LORDING it up with chocky buttons here and there (when she hadn't fallen asleep)

Worchester Cathedral
most of the pictures we took were blurry due to the lighting.
Such a beautiful place. Tilly liked the stained glass.

Dinner!  at the Cathedral still....
"hiya! Hiya" to everyone that went by the table   waves, smiles and cheeky faces to anyone that smiled and waved back... an elder couple were waving and cooing for a good 10 minutes laughing at anyone who jumped out of their skins when she called "hiya" to them
her new favorite word is Haylo as in HELLO..
but more on that later.

"hello mummy... I'm not up to mischief, honest"
Face says it all.

Yes you are...
Look how tall she is getting, Granted she is on her tippie toes there, but she is getting sooo big!
 
(there has been a few days of grumpy tired  not happy or hungry Tilly...
My thoughts are GROWING PAINS.
A dose of calpol, and lots and lots of cuddles sorts that out.
she is a little Taller than last week... a Centre meter or 2

This morning Drawing a picture for POPOPs birthday

today trying out her Right hand..
So far she has a like for being Left handed
 
Vocabulary!
yes... talking a little now.
we have got a few words.
 
Hiya and Heylo (hello)
mumum (mum)
dadee (daddy)
nana (obvious)
and Aah (Ta or thankyou)

such a clever girl
