Wow... 21 weeks

Which now means there are fewer weeks to come than have passed... And I guess I'm feeling a little spooked!

Wiggle was booting extra hard last night, and for what seemed like ages! Tried to get Yorkie to feel it, and he did have his hand right over where I was getting attacked, but he's not sure if he felt baby, or just me (doh!). I guess we'll have to wait for Wiggle to get a bit bigger before he's convinced he's felt it.

Jen came over for a bit last night, and brought some baby cloths with her. Her mate Chris is also expecting another baby, and Conner is already out growing stuff at an alarming rate (12.7lb at 6 weeks!), so she'd packed up stuff that was too small to give to the two of us .

She gave us some teeny-tiny socks, scratch mits, a hat & snow suit, some grows and vests, and a selection of bibs. So cute! And our first lot of baby stuff! If only I had a fully kitted out nursery to keep them in

I'm dying to go out and buy stuff - cloths, toys, nursery equipment and decorations, but I am still determined to wait until after New Year. Aside from anything we need to get Chrismas paid for before I splurge my whole bank account on baby, and I suppose that plodding around babys room in the last few weeks before the birth, setting out teddies and mobiles and stuff will be better than diving right in and doing now, leaving me board and restless waiting for baby to make an appearence. And I still worry that aquiring stuff before New Year might be pushing our luck. I'm still a bit scared that something bad might happen and I don't want a house full of stuff to get rid of, but I was hardly going to turn Jen's offer down, not when she's brought it all the way over any everything.

Wheee! Baby stuff!!!

Romance

Now, we don't really do Romance, Yorkie and I. We're not the sort of couple that goes to posh restraunts, buy hearts and flowers on a whim etc, but last night we had a really sweet night. We didn't really do much that was classically romantic, it was the mood, the feeling in the air, if you know what I mean....? I cooked us steaks for tea, which is always a winner for Yorkie (his second fav after anything pork) and had the candles lit in the front room. Not that I was going for a romantic atmosphere, I just like to have candles lit on cold dark nights. We snuggled up on the settee together, watching nothing much on telly, all warm and cozy under a blanket, with the cat curled up o us. We'd been talking a little bit about the wedding and stuff, and about what my doc had said to me about what to do before we start a family. Yorkie's eyes went all soft and sweet, he was hugging me close and saying all the right kind of sweet thinks that I love to hear. It was on

International Babywearing Week

This is AWESOME! And I didn't even know about it until this year! International Babywearing Week ! I am a big fan of babywearing, although my journey to comfortable, workable babywearing was a slow one. With Jack and Tom I tried a variety of strap and buckle slings and they never really suited us. I gave up with them and thought that babywearing was for other people. Then when I had Georgie my step-mum gave me a Moby cloth wrap sling that she had found at a car boot sale. It came with a book of instructions for how to tie the sling and how to fit baby in safely and comfortably. I gave it a try. Georgie loved it. I loved it. I was totally sold! So from then on when ever I went shopping, or on the school run with the older boys, or to visit friends, or anything.... I popped Georgie in the Moby Wrap. He was comfortable, warm, close to my heart and his much loved boobies (I breastfeed), he could see the world around him, and was a very very happy baby! When I found out

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
