We're back! Sorry about that peeps, this newborn baby business seems to take up rather alot of ones time!
I had kinda forgotten how totally-crazy full on things get when a new tiny person makes their way into your family, but its been the most amazing four weeks anyone could ask for.
Yes, thats right, this tiny man is now four whole weeks old(and a bit). And we've all loved every single second of him.

As a family we all seem to have been drawn even closer together, people pop by more, are more considerate, cry more and love more.
William is a lovely little boy, very cuddly, LOVES his milk, and generally although im dog tired most days, i wake up each morning and thank the lord that i met Mr P and he gave me this amazing gift....

So enough of me gushing on about the love of my life, ive taken hundreds of photos in the last month, of each day which has passed, of the people William has met, of the places he has visited.
Capturing all those firsts.
Today i thought id share with you his first proper trip to the cathedral city of Winchester.
My mum lives in Winchester so im very lucky that we can pop into town, shop till we drop then drive 5 mins up the road and flop on the sofa and drink tea for the afternoon!

Here he is in his pram, 3 weeks old. Growing at a rate of notts, he's already grown out of that sleepsuit!
After heading up the main high street, stopping to ooh and ahh in white stuff and fat face, its time for lunch so we sat here on the bench for a quick feed, opposite the West Cornwall Pasty Co, and watched the world go by, dont you just love doing that, a million different types of people pass you, all with a different agenda, i like to imagine what they're all up to on their journeys.

Sat here we also have a view of this monument, called the Butter cross...one of the figures is of someone called William of Wykeham, how apt?
Its a favourite spot for my girls to sit on while they munch their cheese straws, they love to climb the steep wobbly steps and chase each other in and out of the carvings! As i did with my brother 20 years ago.

On this day a lovely old man was playing his accordion, it was lovely to just, sit, listen, chill.
MMMmm, that sweet baby head smell....cant beat it!...

On this day, William visited a shop dear to my heart for the first time...can you spot it?..

Yup, you guessed it...!

'Say cheese'!
He already has a CK Sleepsuit which was given as a gift when he was born so we didnt make a purchase on this occasion but the staff all said 'hi' and cooed over him!
We wandered on round to the cathedral grounds, there was a lovely warm breeze, and people just milling about...

...Sitting in the cathedral grounds, enjoying their lunch breaks...

Everything is so green at the moment, full of colour and life...

On our way back through town we have to stop off for fuel for mummy...

Looks good eh?

This is my favourite local bakery...i'll have a mushroom ciabatta pizza please!

Down past the street market and home we head.

I hope you enjoyed our mini tour of winchester, im sorry its short and sweet and I will try and pop back as much as possible to fill you in on what else we're all up to. I have an IPhone now so i can read all of your blog posts as 4am milking time, so i may not be actively posting as much as usual but im checking up on all of you and wish you well.

Lots of love, Kirsty xox (and William)

He looks utterly scrumptious, and I'm glad your getting him some CK training, never too young to start!

You look fab too - I looked like something the cat had dragged in for the first years!!

Take care
