All About Jack! (6th Birthday Weekend)

Wow.... Our Jack is 6 years old!

This really shouldn't come as any great surprise to us, he does have two younger brothers after all, and a new sibling on the way in anything up to 21 weeks time. But we're still in a bit of a daze.... Our Baby, our 1st baby, is 6! Where have the last 6 years gone?

I HAD to brag on Facebook! This is the picture I posted on Friday for his birthday. Such a handsome lad!

It's been a busy birthday weekend for our Big Lad. Largely filled with pizza!!! He chose what we had for dinner; take-away pizza from the family favourite pizza place (Starvin Marvin's if you want to know). 

Saturday he came shopping with me to spend some of his birthday money. He bought a DS game. Then he had the pick of what we did as a family. He chose lunch at The Station in Morecambe (he had pizza again), and a long play at their Wacky Warehouse. 

On Sunday he had his Jujitsu grading with Activ8 Self Defence - which he passed and is now the proud owner of an Orange Belt - and then I took him out for lunch at Subway. He chose the Pizziola, virtually a pizza sub! I can't help thinking that it's a good job my eldest son has so much energy and sends so much time running around, or else he would never burn off all this pizza! But he does, and after all, it's only his birthday once a year. If I can't spoil him rotten on his birthday then there's no point him having one!

He says he had a great birthday though. And that's what really matters. As I tucked him into bed one night over the weekend he said you me "You know what Mummy, I'm 6 now, and that means I'm nearly 10!" I smiled and gave him a hug. Inside a little bit of me sank and I thought "yes, and than you'll be 16, 18, 20odd, all grown up and moved out. I'll be happy for you and proud of you, love you always, and dearly miss this little boy who still calls me mummy and wraps his arms round my neck at bedtime for a cuddle and a kiss".

But for now I still have my little boy - 3 of them and a bump - I'm determined to enjoy every second of it!

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
