SADIE OLIVIA ACKLAND!

Hey!

So, since Sept 21 we've been busy with our new baby girl, Sadie Olivia Ackland. She's amazing and Angie and I couldn't be happier!!! She's so awesome, she's even inspired me to write a book for her...it's all about associating things with the sounds they make. So below is little Sadie with a friend and further below are the first couple of illos from the book.

I hope everyone had a great holiday and a Happy New Year!!!

I think I'm going to change the colour of the dog saying "oOOo" because as it is now it looks like the black dog is pooping.
