    Updates

    Alex has been sending out updates via email for a few weeks and I’ll link to them here some time in the next decade, I promise. I may even post some pictures here, the new camera is getting a workout, it’s up to something like 2000 shots in a couple of months, considering the old camera only hit 6000 in 4 years, that’s a lot!

    I’m only posting this because the picture is creepy as all get up.

    Yes, this was a chain letter and I think people who forward these are morons, just read the text, what kind of idiot would believe that crap? I just love the picture (see below), despite being a really bad photoshop (nice shadow on the guys shoulder).

    
    
     READ BEFORE VIEWING THE PICTURE - Spooky !!
    
    The guy in the photo went to the Sundarbans with his friends and he asked 1 of his friends to take his picture in that very place. While his friend was taking the picture he screamed and fainted, 2 days later he died in the medical college. Doctors said he died because of heart attack. When  the photos were exposed, in the last photo there was a lady standing right beside him though friends claim that he was standing alone. Many people  said it is a rumor and the picture is the result of the blessings of  latest technology. However, the photo itself is very scary and I'm sure you'll also feel the same way I've felt.
    
    Here you go with the photo!!!
    
    A navy officer sent this letter to 13 people and he was promoted.
    A business man received this letter and threw it away..not believing in it.. and he lost everything he had within 13 days.
    It reached a labourer and he distributed it to 13 people.. he was promoted and all his problems were solved within 13 days..
    
    So you must send this e mail to 13 people for something good to happen to you; so people. get sending!!
    
    PS : Do not send back to the person who send this to you!!!

    Things I have learned in the last 6 weeks.

    1. I’m glad I took 4 weeks off work after the birth.

    2. Make a list of stuff you need for the bub, use it when people ask you if you need anything, if you just say “oh I don’t know” you will end up with 56 cute jumpers and no pants (this still happened to us, despite a list)

    3. You can never have too many nappies.

    4. There’s this thing called a Tomee Tippee nappy disposal system, which is a big yellow container which you stuff dirty nappies into and it keeps them sealed and non-smelly until you can chuck them all in the bin, a bit expensive to buy and refill but PRICELESS.

    5. Disposable nappies are the best invention, ever.

    6. Dont’ fall into the “I must buy this and this and this to be a good parent” (this advice originally told to me by Cav) there are so many things on the market that seem like a great idea but you just don’t need and will hardly use, baby socks are a good example, we have about 20 pairs and we’ve used maybe 2 so far in 6 weeks.

    7. Stay Calm.

    8. Bonds Wondersuits are, well, wonderfull. It’s a one peice suit thingy with feet and makes change time super easy (and you’ll be changing nappies A LOT), they don’t look as cool as seperate shirt and pants+socks but for every day use they rule.

    9. Baby poop doesn’t smell so bad, yet.

    10. Point the penis down, secure the nappy well. (that will get me some google hits for sure!)

    I’m sure there’s more.
