Dino!

Jack's a happier baby again now, only he seems to have started teething! Hopefully (for me at least) it will still be some time before any 'peggies' actually come through, but he is getting rumblings in his lower gum.

He's started with drooling a lot, and by a lot I mean drenching 3 bibs a day.He's also been chewing his fist a lot. He's been doing that for a couple of weeks at least. But now he's combining that with a new cry. A real one with screamy bits and real tears. A couple of weekends ago someone mentioned that they thought they could see white bits on his gums which might be the start of teeth so we thought we'd get some calgel just in case, but didn't use it.

At Lune Park Baby Massage on Monday Kathy was asking the lady who runs it about some symptoms that little Katie was displaying, including those of Jacks, and she suggested that Katie might be teething so I asked about Jack. She said the same!

So it's been dabs of calgel on the gums when he's yelling (other wise he licks it off my finger coz it's nice). He can have that up to 6 times a day. He's also having a bit of calpol to help him through the night when his temp goes up.

But his biggest helper is Dino, who he cuddles and chews when he needs to chew something - which is great because he can't hold the weight of his teething toys yet, and is too young for rusks or chilled carrot sticks.

We love Dino!

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…

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…
