Big Steps for Small Boys (esp Georgies)

It's been a busy old day here! Our Big Lad Jack was off to a friends house after school, not the first time by a long shot, but this time he was staying out for his dinner. That's a first! I'm perfectly happy with him going out after school and the family he went with are smashing. My only worry was that today I had no mobile phone signal! (I've had an upgrade at it taken ALL DAY to get switched over, Grrr) so I felt cut off from him! But he was fine and behaved himself well enough. 

The friends dad, however, did mention that Big Lad was now wearing a pair of his mates underpants..... It's been a scorching hot day and they were playing in the back garden with some water. Jack felt the need to strip out of his uniform and splash about in his boxers...


At least he had the sense not to wreck his school clothes!

Blondie Tom has had a bit of a day of it too. As well as 4 days in a row being Clean & Dry (whoo potty training) he's had a MASSIVE hair cut! Can you believe these photos are only 5 days apart?

I have to admit I felt like crying as the lady took clippers to my Angels beautiful golden locks... but it's not the first hair cut he's had, and with it being so hot lately the poor boy has really suffered with the heat. His head has been sweating and his hair was getting matted. Plus there's been a threat of head lice in nursery so better safe than sorry. At least we'll be able to SEE if he gets them.

But the biggest and best news is for our Georgie Boo!

He took his first proper steps today! At 1yr, 2m, 1w and 2days old he took 5 wobbly steps from me to his dad totally unaided! We're SOOOOO proud! I wish I could have caught it on camera, but when I think about it, it's much more important to have been able to witness it first hand. There will be plenty of time to capture him running around. Only one time to smoother him in kisses and cuddles for doing it the first time!

I love these mile stones. I love seeing my babies grow into young boys. They mean the whole world to me!

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…
