Anders in his new Liverpool kit

Anders, aged 10+ months in his new LFC kit


The kit isn't as big as I thought it would be.   Maybe I should have bought another size up.

Here is my little Anders, looking absolutely fabulous in his kit.  But then again, it IS an LFC kit so how can anyone not look fabulous in it!  My two sons suit the red of Liverpool, they do.

Anders' new LFC kit

Anders' new LFC kit, Mar 2014

When Connor was born, friends in Scotland sent us a baby Liverpool FC kit.  Maybe it's hard for you to understand if you're not a footie fan but I absolutely loved seeing my son wearing the kit.  Even more so when he was posing with a football.   At that time, there was a huge hoo-haa on fan forums regarding the lack of local boys in our club and I had daydreams of my son (who's half-Liverpudlian) being one of the "local boys" in the starting eleven one day. 

When Anders came along, I didn't really think about buying him his own LFC kit.  After all, the one Connor wore still looked brand new and it fitted our Anders perfectly now.  I had learnt the hard way that infants grow out of clothing very very quickly and it's best to not spend a fortune on their clothes quite yet.

But then I spied this kit at 50% off.  The bargain hunter and Liverpool fan in me could not resist.  I pulled out the credit card right away and bought the kit.  

It arrived last week, all shiny and new and I was SO pleased with it.  Poor Anders.... being the younger child, he's always been in hand-me-downs and we've barely bought anything for him that's all his.  

Until this kit arrived.  This is HIS.  It's all new, never been worn and it's my gift to my younger son, one for him to keep and maybe pass on to his own son.  

I can't wait for him to grow big enough to fit this kit.  It says on the label 12-18 months but the sizing is so generous, it looks like it can fit a 2yo easily.  I don't mind.... happy to have clothing last him as long as possible!

You'll never walk alone, my little Anders.

This is what little brothers are for

It's lovely having a little brother who you can make fun of.

It's fun to be the big, powerful older brother blowing into your little brother's face making him gasp and giggle.

It's great having a little person adore your every move and think you're the greatest big brother EVER.

Here's to little brothers everywhere.

Me and my babies, Feb 2014

Me and my babies, Feb 2014

My beautiful babies.

Mummy looking worse for the wear after many sleep-interrupted nights.  Anders was teething then and waking up quite often at night.

This pic was shot not long after we woke up on a lazy Sunday morning and we're all in our jammies still. There's Connor looking more and more like me... but a much more beautiful version of me.  And our little Anders who looks more like Dear Hubby... with a touch of me in him.

I love the pic.
