God Mother!

Last weekend was the baptism of Caitlin & Mia, and I officially became Caitlin's God Mother! It was a shame that Yorkie couldn't go, and both girls were asking for him and wanting to know where he was. Mia insisted that I make him come to her 'next christening'... How many is she planning on having? Still, with a bit of luck he'll make it to Caitlin's confirmation in May.

Both girls looked lovely though and where great during the service. Mia got a little stressed at being held like a baby so that she could have the water on her head, especially since Caitlin got to just stand on a step and lean over the font instead.

I've never been to a Catholic baptism before, and even though I was 10 at my own CofE baptism I don't really recall much about it. It was fun though, like Jacs said, you get to renounce Satan, and the girls were exorcised too! Even the priest accepted that this was something to giggle about, and has nothing to do with the girls potential for being possessed (rats).

The godparents where Daves two sisters, Jacs brother and sister, Daves bestest bud, and me as Jacs best mate. One of Dave's sisters was so late that she missed half the service and almost missed out all together, and I was maybe a liiiitle bit worried about Mia waving her baptism candle about the place before she got to blow it out. Taffeta doesn't take much to burst into flame! Still, she was good and nothing terrifying happened.

Got some nice photos of the day and when I get chance I'll post them up.

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
