France!!!


So we've been back to France! As usual Jack was a little STAR on the plane, opting to sleep for most of the flight to and from Geneva. I was very proud of our little man. When we came through customs Dad and Fay were waiting for us at the fence/barriar thingumy. We said hello, passed Jack over, and walked around, half expecting him to kick off and start screaming because he had been handed to 2 people he didn't know very well while mummy and daddy 'walked off'. But he didn't. He smiled at each of them! And didn't even give a hint of concern!

We had a bit of a quiet time this trip, mostly just letting Jack run around as much as he liked in his nappy & t-shirt, or nappy & shorts. He doesn't do well with the heat, just like his dad. But Jack LOVED being nearly nude all the time! The best toys in the world right now are three globe style metal candel holders, they bang and crash and clatter and chime and spin! I think we might have to go and BUY some! He also loved his first ever box of duplo and first ever football! (he's such a BOY!)



He also had a splash about in Pappee's new pool! He was a bit unsteady to start with, slipping over and dunking his little head a bit, but he didn't cry or fuss. Just came over to one of us for a bit of reasurance, then toddled off again. By the time he was starting to get chilly he was managing to hold his face out of the water if he dunked! He did NOT like being taken out of the pool and dried off once we desided it was getting TOO cold (by the goosebumps and shivering bottom lip), as he hadn't had enough fun yet!

We're already looking at going over again before the end of the year, hopefully over my dad's birthday again! Maybe that time Jack will be talking, and swimming, and kicking that football & rugby ball we've got for him.

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
