then and now

I have a poorly toddler at the moment. We've been enjoying extra cuddles and lots of time reading together which is lovely, and just about makes up for the broken sleep, grumpiness and occasional non-stop crying session (on both parts)!

Here we are enjoying "Fresh Delicious" together - a book I illustrated whilst he was in my tummy, maybe having a peep out from my belly button. I finished the artwork on his due date - lucky he didn't arrive early!! The 2nd and 3rd picture show work in progress and are dated about a month before he was born. Funny to think we hadn't met yet at that point, and here we are a year and a half later, sharing my lap and the book :)
