Smudge Scan!

Awwwwwwwwww! This is "Smudge", our 3rd wee baba, who measures 11 weeks today - officially...

I say "officially" because every measurement I saw the woman take displayed 10 weeks 5 days (I'd worked us out at 10 weeks 3-4 days) so don't know why she settled on 11 weeks 0 days. but never mind, that doesn't matter so much. What matters is little Smudge is alive and well.

Its a shame that me n Mark both felt that we hadn't had the best sonographer the RLI has to offer. First off she thought this was our 2nd scan (no... that'll be the other couple we were just talking to outside) and then she wasn't chatty like they usually are. I was worried to start with coz Smudge wasn't moving, and I couldn't see a heart beat. And she said NOTHING for ages.... Then finally she went through head, bum, arms, legs and heartbeat (which I STILL couldn't see). Then Smudge moved.... phew! Think baby was trying to sleep and did not like being prodded. She missed out on the best photo ops and we wound up with this shot of the back of Smudges head (on the right there) and has us whisked out in under 5mins :o(

Never mind though, we'll no doubt get a better one at 20 weeks, and if I get checked for GD again then there will be plenty more scans.

I'm just happy to see our baby alive and well :0)

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…
