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!!!

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Bath night with these two horrors!
