Swimming!

Just got back from taking Jack swimming. I don't think we've been sice we were in France... To be honest I haven't been happy at the idea of taking him swimming when it's winter incase he gets a chill on the way home. Silly I know, but that's how I felt. Anyway. The weather is warmer now, and although today is too damp to go to the park as I'd planned, it's ideal for a swim at the baths!

He was a little freaked out at first - I think he'd forgotten how to swim. His head went under a few times including when he first went down the toddler slide, but he soon got over it and was having fun with the other kiddies messing about with floats and actually going up and down the slide continuously for almost half an hour!

He tried out the spa pool, but wasn't sure about the bubbles, and the big pool, where he had to cling onto me because he can't reach the bottom. In the end we only came out at 12 because he was getting hungrey!

For me it was really nice to be weightless for a while! My bump is getting pretty big and heavy these days and my back is suffering so having an hour and a half in the water felt wonderful (even if Jack did dunk me once). I think we might start to do this more often again. We used to go quite often last summer so there's no reason why not! And when Squiggle's here daddy will have to come too!! Yay!

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
