Remember Sugglepot and Cuddlepie? I do. Quintessentially Australian and totally adorable. I used to love the stories when I was young. It really is essential that I search around for the story books I had as a child and pass them on to my kids. Essential because when I asked Byron whether he knew the stories of Snugglepot and Cuddlepie. He promptly replied “Huh!? Snuggleup and Partypie! What? Huh?“. Geez the kids of today. I need to pull my finger out and start educating them.
Anyway, I digress….the reason I mentioned those wee little characters was because the moment I saw the very first picture shown below, I immediately was transported back to my childhood. There really couldn’t be a cuter little Gumnut Baby. Surely not?
He was so teeny tiny, delicate and all things beautiful. It was such a pleasure spending a few hours with him and capturing some of his essence.
Enjoy a peak at his loveliness below…
