Baby Shower

Spoiled again... And completely blindsided by my mates with this one. Jill had invited me over this weekend ages ago to have a celebratory lunch on my first day of post-work-freedom. I'd toyed with the idea of doing my hair nice and slapping a bit of make-up on, but thought "Nah... Jill'll understand that the last thing I an be bothered doing is tarting myself up" (She's also pregnant) so just tied my hair back and went out with a flaky, un-moisturised and un-made-up face, maternity jeans and baggy jumper.

Of course when Gary dropped me off there it's not only Jill, but Jen and Sarah and Fran too, with banners and posters up for "Chiglets baby Shower", a table laden with gifts and a buffet in the kitchen!

We had a great afternoon, with mum-of-two Jen, Mum-of-one-and-one-on-way Jill, and first-bun-in-oven-me freaking out Fran and Sarah with stories of pregnancy, child-birth and motherhood in all it's glory! We stuffed our faces and drank about a million cups of caffeine-free tea.... and then came the prezzies!

Wiggle's done good again, a host of adorable outfits featuring bunnies, sheep and giraffes, and even a little jacket with a puppy-dog hood (with ears!), and snuggle toys. I also got a baby book to record those precious moments and some pamper stuff for me.

I will get round to taking a photo of some of these gifts we're getting at some point, I'm just feeling massive and lazy at the moment. But in the meantime: THANK YOU EVERYONE!

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
