Catch up (again)

Jack's been poorly again this week. He's had a horrible snotty cold which has been keeping him from sleeping well because his nose kept on blocking up and he couldn't breathe. It's been hard, but he's coming through it now. I'm so glad I kept that little bottle of drops for his nose from his first cold because we'd have been stuffed without it.

But we've been keeping busy. Jack's slept through most of it, but busy is busy. On Monday my boss came over and took us out to lunch as Hest Bank. It was lovely weather and we sat out in the sun to have our fish n chips - which was the one time Jack perked up. He's getting very interested in food! Me and the Boss-man talked work and I have been given the OK for the days I want to work, and for time off in Oct to see Dad & Fay (just waiting for Yorkie to get the same from his boss) so that was all good - and it meant that Jack got to have a ride in the boss's nice blue jag!

On Tue the health visitor came over to see how we're doing and check on Jack's cold - the conclusion was that we're doing just fine. And then Kathy popped in with baby Katie. Mum came over on Wednesday and took me and Yorkie out for lunch. Thurs' massage class wasn't much good. Poor Jack cried and just wanted loving, but at least I got to have a cup of tea this time! Debs came over in the afternoon and Jack was introduced to the Ann Summers store on town while she picked out some new undies to impress her new feller with.

Friday was a lovely day, although Jack slept through most of it. It started off duff with us turning up to a baby session which had changed days and I hadn't noticed (it's not one I go to often and it changes each month apparently) so wasn't on, but we met up with Jen and her lad Adam (who was dressed in his Spider-man suit - I wish I had some photos!) and went to the park for a while and had a pic-nic and then back to mine for a DVD.

Today was supposed to be Fairfield Funday. We were going and meeting up with Jen & kids, Jill & Gary & Kids and Chrissy & Kids. But this morning it was raining sheet water! So we wound up cancelling, although Jill did invite us round for the afternoon (Jen & Chrissy did stuff too, we didn't just ditch them!)

Jack seems to be felling better now too. He's gone to bed without needing his drops and has been very playful all evening. Even having a damn good go at getting to his daddy! This kid REALLY wants to be walking!

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
