Big Baba!

The health visitor came round again yesterday to check Jack over.

Bad news is his bum. Poor little mite has thrush on his butt so she's given us some cream for that which will hopefully sort him out - it explains why he hates nappy changes so much, they probably hurt him!

Good news is he has gained a whole pound since the last visit (which was monday last week)! So, after being born 9lb 13, losing an initial 13oz (within 10% so perfectly normal), he's gained 6oz, and then another 1lb! It makes him 10lb 6oz (which was MY birth weight - whole new respect for my poor mother!!!)

I knew he was bigger... He looks it, feels it, and EATS like it! It seems like all I do is feed Jack and it's clearly doing him good.

Yorkie went back to work yesterday. It feels odd not having him around, but I haven't had to deal with being on my own with Jack yet since Dad and Fay are here. Looks like our first day just the two of us will be Monday as Mum's over on Friday when Dad and Fay leave and Yorkie has the weekend off. I'm quite looking forward to it, but nervous as well. I'm sure we'll cope fine though!

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
