Yes they are milk bottle tops :) I just love them so much! Gorgeous little balls of fluff, each with their own personality already! I can't wait to find out what colours they will be when they are older!

All still doing well :) my little one who had splayed legs (who we made a hobble for - no easy task!) is walking much better, but the hobble has fallen off now after 3 days. Should we try to make another? I don't want to cause more distress than necessary x

Well, if it's helped him, it might be worth another try. Maybe he's a bit bigger (!) three days on?
