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.

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…
