H-Bear // 2 Years

Two years of H-Bear. Two years!?! His second year on the planet has involved rather more sleep than the first year – thank goodness! And what a gorgeous little boy he’s growing up to be. He’s so affectionate and silly… and is very cheeky!

H-Bear // 23 months

H-Bear // 22 months

This month has been a fantastic one for H-Bear in many ways!

He’s constantly trying new words out too, and fitting them together. However, other than our family names, everything is said with a ‘g’ in  ...
