A good nights sleep!

Ohhh... how your ideas of a good nights sleep can change :oD

So far, most nights, Tom has been wanting a feed every hour or hour and a half, and hasn't wanted to settle into his own bed. Couple that with Jack having a few rough nights too (doesn't do well with the heat, and night before last his nappy ripped open and split crystals all over his bed!) and you get a very tired mummy & daddy!

Well last night was different! Last night we didn't have a peep out of Jack until 6.30am - which is fine - and Tom only woke to be fed at our bed time, 1am and 5am! Effectively he only disturbed my sleep once as by the time he'd had hid 5am feed & nappy change Jack was up.

We had a lovely half hour lounging in bed, Mark & I, with both our kiddies. Jack laughing, gigglimg and scrambling all over us, Tom chilling out and taking it all in. I like this whole family thing!

Now I am enjoying the peace and quiet brought by Mark taking Jack to Dad's club. I'm sat snuggling a well fed and clean bottomed Tom while I catch up on my soaps and wait for the midwife to visit. The sun is shining, I have the door open to let in the light & fresh air. Everything is wonderful!

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

Tom wanted a go at cooking this week. And beef kofta curry was his choice! Big helping hand from mum but he worked had and we had fun singing in the kitchen while we cooked. This "teaching life skills" is alright you know
