Jack's Potty Training - Update

Around 6 months ago now I first started to potty train Jack. This week - for the first time - he has gone ALL WEEK with clean dry pants! Whooohoooo!

Ok. so if you don't have kids that will leave you pretty cold, but for us mums (and dads) it is a big deal. We still need to remind him sometimes - before meal, before we go out etc - but this week he's been brill, even going on the toilet by himself not just the potty.

I'm thinking, if we get another week or so like this I'll start trying him over night in pants instead of nappy-pants. He has a potty in his room, and a roll of toilet paper. He uses it sometimes if he is playing in his room by him self. I'm feeling optimistic!

It's another important milestone. At the risk of tempting fate I'd say he was dry now during the day. He's talking fluently too and people (not just family) can understand him. He has bags of confidence and loves to play out with the other kids on the street even though they are all at least 2 years older than him.

Can't believe he's going to be starting nursery in September....It's only 4 months away! He's so grown up!

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
