Jack's 4th Birthday!


Jack's birthday was a very busy day!!!

Up around 6ish, presents from us, Nana & Grandad John, and Mame & Pape, then breakfast and off to nursery.

He had a little party at nursery (he and another boy called Thomas) with bread-bun pizzas! The other birthday boy brought some bread buns and tomatoes and cheese, so Jack took some more cheese and some ham & pineapple for toppings! He came home with a card from nursery and a toy from the birthday box (a jumping ladybird).

Since I was at the GD clinic for Smudge and Mark was working, my mum came over to mind the boys for the afternoon and then come to Jack's party. Jack loved "teaching" his Nana how to play Guess Who, and tried showing her how to use the Wii :D

4pm was Jack's birthday party at Pizza Hut! 8 kiddies and assorted parents: Jack & Tom, Adam & Connor, Katie, and his 3 friends from nursery Rory, Henry & Lucas. I think it's safe to say we were not the most organised party group they have ever had but with the average age of 4 what did they expect?

All the kids seemed to enjoy them selves (mainly by playing with the car park ticket machine coz they could type their names in to it!) and everyone went home happy. It wasn't even all that expensive!

Kathy came back to ours with Katie for an hour or so which was a lovely way for Jack to wind down for the evening before going up to bed a whole hour late (well, it was his birthday) and I think - all in all - it was a good day :D

We even have plenty of birthday funds left over for a trip to the zoo once Smudge arrives!

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
