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!

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
