Tom is settled in his new bed :)

It only took a week! How impressed am I with our super boys?

Basically all I did was stick to our original bedtime routine, but putting Tom in his new bed. That way there was only the one change for him to deal with. Then just putting him back to bed, silently, each time he got up. That took 3 nights. Not bad.

Next I started to put both boys to bed at the same time, but with the same routine, and I introduced Tom to the bedtime story - which Jack has had since he moved into that room. That went well too. Tom got a little giddy but I ignored the silliness and put him back to bed. By night 5 he was used to it.

Night 6 was easy and by night 7 we'd done 3 nights in a row without Tom getting up or crying!

Sadly both kids (and me) have now come down with nasty colds complete with coughs and wallpaper paste snot, so we are having disturbed nights while they are ill but even now they aren't giving us any problems going to bed and they do stay put... They cry coz they have headaches/woke up coughing/can't breath well, but we go in to them and for the most part they settle back down.

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
