Tom is 4 months old!

It's shocking how fast time passes. Tom is already 4 months old. In 4 months time I'll be back at work. It'll still feel too soon.

Still, in the meantime I am enjoying every day I spend with my boys! I love my boys! One of the best things in all the world (and forgive me if I have said it before, but it's true) is simply sitting on the sofa with Tom on my knee, and Jack snuggled up next to me with my arm round him, while we settle in to watch a DVD. It means I get to cuddle both my boys at the same time for a while.

Jack is still the doting big brother. Everything is "Tom!" all the time. "Tom's Toy" or "Tom's Tea", he laughs himself silly if Tom smiles at him, and then Tom laughs back too. It's SO sweet! He loves to play with the baby toys too - and at the same time Tom is eyeing up everything of Jacks!

Tom's getting to be so big too. He's now in 6-9 month baby clothes and has been for a couple of weeks. He's having some baby rice and some rusk with his milk. He's due for his jabs this week and I'll get him weighed. He's spinning round on the spot now when he's put on his tummy to play and is starting to look like he might roll over if he's on his back - especially on his change mat because he can dig his toes into the side from leverage!

I wonder if he'll be crawling - or more - by Christmas!

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
