We might be sick, but get a load of Tom!

We've been struck down with yet another D&V bug, or maybe food poisoning, or something. Since Monday Mark, Tom and I have been pretty grotty. Jack's been ok, which is why Mark thinks it's something we've eaten what with me still feeding Tom.

But that's not what this post is about.... It's about Tom....

Who yesterday morning produced 2 teeth! Front bottom two together, just cutting through the gum. And yes, he's bitten me once during a feed already. Hopefully that will be the only time or he'll be off the boob faster than fast! He can stay as long as he's good (within reason, I already have comments from hubby et al about "bitty", sigh....)

He's also motoring...! A kind of half crawl, half bum shuffle :oD but he can move fast if he wants to, fast enough to pilfer his brother abandoned snacks, knab all his best toys, tip over his juice the moment his back is turned.

And we finally have a "best" toy ... not as cute or as cuddly as Jack's Splodge. Tom adores his yellow drum stick. He carries it every where, jumps about and laughs if you produce if for him when he's been without for a while, and gets very very cross if anyone tries to take it away. He uses it as a teether. I can only assume it is the best teether in the world, ever!

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…
