Tom's 1st Birthday


Awwwwwww! My Wee Tomska is a whole year old today! It's gone so fast, too fast. Isn't he a cracking lad though? Almost toddling too.

He's had a fab birthday. Kathy and Jen came over for the day with their kiddies - it's half term so that made it even better. The 2 lads from across the road that are Jack's friends came over for a bit too.

Tom seems to love all his presents. We gave him the Yojojo and Tinga Monkey toys from his Mame & Pape (they gave me the cash to buy him something he wanted), he got a car & garage set from Uncle Bob, Aunty Rach and Cousin Ben, Kathy & Katie (by coincidence) bought him some cars that are from the same set. How perfect is that? Jen, Adam & Conner game him a ride-on car that he already loves shuffling about on. From us he got mostly Weebles, along with a book and  DVD. He's played with everything and loved it all.

Jack and the bigger kids spent most of the day chasing each other round and round. Tom and the younger kids played mostly in the house with Tom's cars & weebles and Jack's trains. But EVERYONE played in Tom's BIG present.... the play house!

It's been a great day though. I'm very impressed with all the kids, who behaved so well! Including my own two; Tom held his own until 2.30 when he finally started to nod off in my arms, and Jack coped amazingly well with not being the centre of attention or getting all the presents. He's getting to stay up a little late playing on the Wii with daddy as a reward.

On a personal note: The diet is totally blown for the day, an estimated 44 points (Ouch) and with Saturday at my mums likely to be another scoff-fest I think I'll be gaining a few pounds this week. Oh well.......

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
