Let Your Heart Sing

Let Your Heart Sing
"Let Your Heart Sing"

:-) I'm very happy with the above digital piece which I created during the lessons week 4 & 5 for Digital Dreams. (You can still join if you like btw, if you want to learn how to make art like the above, just go here: to sign up).

I've been feeling pretty exhausted lately though. I keep getting new viruses over and over and my back ache is still not gone. I often just want to take a week out and just sleep and sleep and sleep.

Baby number two is now 22 weeks gestation! I'm much less involved with this pregnancy than I was with Dylan, and I think the baby knows because it keeps trying to get my attention by kicking me! ha ha. It's a really active baby, much more active than Dylan ever was! It's nice though, it's like he's saying: oye, don't forget about me, I'm here too! Ha ha. In 2 weeks time the baby is officially viable which means that if he came early, there is a 50% chance he'll survive, amazing! I know it's early in the pregnancy to start wishing for him to be here already, but I do look fwd to him being out and healthy and happy and then I can kind of get my body back.

Dylan is a sort of up and down little toddler lately, he has days where he is very difficult to be around, he complains about everything and whatever you do, nothing is 'good enough' to appease him, and then on other day he is this hilarious, easy-going little boy who is just so delightful and funny! He's still not talking much, but unlike a while back when he was also not interested in trying, he's actually interested in trying now. It's quite funny though, because you'll go: 'Dylan can you say "monkey"'? And he goes: 'boobahf'. LOL. Something completely not even similar! Ha ha.

He's also lately learned to do 'thumbs up' and it does it to everything and everyone, lookit:

This is one of the most hilarious pictures I've ever taken of him!

But yes, it's tough sometimes, it's very up and down and the battle of wills can be exhausting, but in so many other ways it's also just so wonderful. A range of emotions on the spectrum.

Anyhoo, this is a short but sweet little bloggie post. Hope you are all well! <3


  1. Ahh yes, any consequent babies after the first don't get near the same sort of attention, as you're so busy with their older siblings! Such is life!
    It's hard when they're Dylan's age. I remember Zack being such a wilful little boy! Oh wait... he still is. >_<
    There are two years and 3 months between mine. It was hard, but it's oh so worth it! :)

    Take care of yourself, sweety! xx

  2. such a cute photo, made me laugh

  3. Your son is so cute. I love how he can show you a thimbs up. Looking totally happy!
    Your art is beautiful, loving the cute little nose and huge eyes!

  4. I'm glad that you're still doing all right baby wise Tam and I hope that the viruses stay away so that you can get and stay healthy.

    Hugs XX

  5. Good to hear you're well Tam. Pregnancy is a weird time when time slows down (did for me anyway!) The weirdest thing of all is that when the baby arrives Dylan will suddenly look like a grown up! ;) Enjoy your weekend! :)xx
