Our Christmas 2012 - Georgie's 1st

It's been a lovely Christmas (apart from Jack & George both being sick on Christmas Eve, and my total sleep deprivation over the festive period which is starting to catch up with me now), the kids seem to have everything they wanted - and then some :)

We did the usual Christmas Eve and Morning at Nana's, Christmas Dinner at Aunty Jenny's, Christmas Night at D-Dads, and Boxing Day at Grandmas. We also managed to see all the other aunts, uncles, and cousins, had all of the 2012 babies ( our George, and Harry & Amelia ) play together, squeeze in Uncle Lee's 18th, and make it home for New Year. I didn't get any where near as many photos as I wanted to get but we do have enough chocolate to open our own tuck shop!

I don't think Georgie had the first clue what was going on most of the time, but he did enjoy the pretty lights, the chocolate ( which might have a lot to do with the sicky bouts and broken sleep ), and the massive amount of snuggles and cuddles and loves he got from everyone. His 'big' pres from us was a Bumbo so he can sit with his brothers when they are on their stools, have a safe place to play when I need to do other things ( like cook ) and such like, but he also got a ton of soft toys, games, chocolate and clothes. Think he did well for his first Christmas!

And for New Year.... My baby finally learned to crawl, and had a cruise round an arm chair too! I'm sure you're supposed to do one then the other, not both at the same time, but hey ho. We've also finally got the nursery ready for him to move into. He's in there tonight. He's had his nap in there this afternoon and seemed to like it. He's been down an hour now tonight with no fuss. I'll still be bringing him in with us for his feeds for now, but its progress. I go back to work on
Monday so I need to get the new routine established.

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
