Growing up fast

Our lad Jack...

I can't get over how much he's changed this last few weeks.

He's been sleeping through the night now for about 2 1/2 weeks, which is wonderful! We put him down about 8.30pm and that's it until 6.30am, with the occasional feed as we're going to bed if we wake him up by mistake.

He's crawling forwards now, first just a couple of little crawl steps, then - once he had the right motivation - really motoring forwards. Take last weekend for example. We went to stay with Jenny for the weekend and see the family. On the Sunday we went for lunch at my mother-in-laws and little Alex had Jack's juice cup. Jack was not impressed since I had taken it off him (so he wouldn't fill up on juice and not eat his lunch which he's good at doing). He growled and stomped across the floor to snatch it back!

He's got two teeth now too! Both front ones on the bottom gum. He's taken to wanting to feed himself too. He's pretty good with his tommy tippy juice cup, trys to wrangle the bottle out of his daddy's hand, and would rather stuff food into his own mouth than be spoon fed by anyone! And he's eating proper food. We hardly blend anything up for him now, chop it up small, but not blended.

And just tonight while I was down on the floor playing with him (other wise known as not letting him play with the nappy sack containing the dirty nappy I just took off him) he pulled himself upright! Supporting his weight on his own two little feet, with just my hand hovering over his bum at the ready to steady him if he fell. Which he didn't!

I can't get over how amazing our little lad is. Every day he's different, more wonderful, more fun. I just want to spend all day at home playing games with him.

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola

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
