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 one of thos…

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

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…
