Making Tom official!

We've had some family round this weekend!

On Saturday Kate and Dave came over to see us and meet Tom, and on Sunday Jenny & Ash called in. I didn't manage to get many photos this time round (think I'm still in a bit of a daze, it didn't register to get the camera out) but Mark did manage to snap a couple.

Jack was a bit overwhelmed with the guests. It took him ages to come out of his shell and play when Kate & Dave were over, very much out of character for Jack! Mind you, a belly full of food and a new wheel barrow complete with gardening tool set warmed him up!

He wasn't much better on Sunday, but I think he was starting to get used to having so many people round and (again with the help of some food) he did relax after a bit.

Tom, on the other hand, has taken it all in his stride opting to sleep and feed and look cute :oD

Today's been pretty busy too. The midwife came over this morning to do Tom's 5 day checks and his heel pricks. Poor wee Tom, screamed his little head off! Jack came charging over with a "What are you doing to my brother?" expression on his face, and he laid a protective hand on Tom until I reassured him that it was all ok, and he could go and play with daddy. The out come being that both Tom and I appear to be fit and well. Tom was weighed and has only lost just over 2 oz (which is great, Jack lost 13 oz in his first week and even that was considered not to be a worry given his size).

My mum came over for the afternoon too with John, who hadn't met Tom yet. They took Jack to Morecambe for lunch and a mad hour or two at Happy Mount Park while we went into town to get Tom registered and pick up a passport form for him. We'd planned to get to the bank and open an account for Tom too, but since the car battery is flat AGAIN (for no apparent reason this time) and we had to walk we ran out of time. But since daddy has been offered a few more days work again this week (whoohoo!) I might just potter in to town with the pair of them through the week and get it sorted - it'll give me a chance to start looking at Fathers Day presents, and a birthday present for Nana (aka my mum) too.

Dress Shopping

Yay! Another thing of the list - two things actually because I'm certain I have the right replacement shoes for me too!

Drove down to Mum's this morning, picked her up and drove over to Jacquie's, and from there the three of us and Jac's two daughters headed over to the Trafford Centre.

It turned out to be a really easy shopping trip - and surprisingly quick too!

First off, Debenhams. The first dresses we saw for child bridesmaids looked just about perfect. Little ivory dresses with chiffon type fabric over the skirt and little flowers embroidered on the top. This means that they are the same ivory as my dress, and have some green included too which makes them ideal. And they had Caitlin & Mia's sizes too. The girls tried them on, with co-ordinating shoes, and looked brilliant! We looked at others, but none of them came close so we had them put aside and moved onto the next shop.

Monsoon had a sale on, and we were hopeful, but nothing was quite right. They had plen…

Tom's 1st Jujitsu Grading

It's that time of year again! Jack and Tom have been preparing for their grading since September. Jack is used to the whole process now, but for Tom it was the first time. This time we were taking Jack's friend Rory with us - he goes to a different school but does jujitsu with the same club.

Tom was trying for his first belt which is white. Rory was going for orange, and Jack was going for blue.

As usual parents can't stay to watch, so after dropping the three of them off I went for a wander to get some steps in for my own fitness (and a coffee and mince pie) with Freddie. In the freezing cold and bitter wind of Morecambe in December! Lucky old Hubby and Georgie stayed at home in the warm! Freddie didn't rate it at all - if he wasn't still 100% a boobie baby I wouldn't have dragged him out in it and left him home in the warm too.

When I got back to the school and queued up to get in and watch the belts be awarded I wound up chatting with another mum. We got on…

Bath night with these two horrors!
