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!

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
