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 one of thos…

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

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…
