More Tom progress

I think Tom must know it's nearly his first birthday... He's suddenly doing so much all at once. It's like he wants to get it all under his belt before he turns 1 :oD Today not only has his crawling turned up a gear (he can really motor now) he fed himself his tea with a spoon!

To be fair, he was hungry coz tea was a bit late, and as usual Jack was demanding 110% of mine and Marks attention by fussing and sulking and tantruming and not eating (tea time is such a struggle with him, he uses it as a time to get attention by misbehaving). I think Tom thought that if he didn't pick up his own spoon he wouldn't get fed any time soon! Which isn't actually the case... and he had finger food too.

When I tried to spoon feed him his rice he refused, took the spoon off me and did it himself. Some of it went all over the place but he did brilliantly. It seems he likes paprika coated roast chicken with chilli risotto rice. It sticks to the spoon well too so it's easier for him to feed himself.

I just wish my toddler would eat as well as my baby!

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…
