Wedding Suits

This weekend we were invited to a wedding. The beautiful bride is my Hubby's (sort of) step sister, so there was a big chunk of his side of the family there. Good times had by all, and a lovely bonus in my brother-in-law and missus staying in the same hotel as us. She's pregnant too, just 3 days ahead of us with their 2nd child.

We stayed at a Premier Inn this time over at Brighouse, Hudderfield (Hudddersfield North) and I think it's safe to say the kids and I are sold on them! Even if we did all wind up sharing a room. All 5 of us plus bump (the kids are no where near old enough to be in a room without us yet). Luckily the room was MASSIVE being a proper family room. And the breakfast was excellent too. There was no need to go and hunt down any lunch afterwards!

My mother-in-law had bought suits for my boys and had them sent over to us. I must get the website link to share with you. The lads looked adorable! It's such a shame they wont get another chance to wear them before they are grown out of. She ordered some similar ones for their older nephews too. Someone took a photo of them all together, and I must track a copy down!


The wedding was a lovey do, and the wedding breakfast was excellent. Most of the kiddies got to sit at their own table in the middle too (not Georgie or the 5 week old baby girl whose mum shared our table) which was fabulous! They loved the independence, and frankly we parents enjoyed the break! The evening do was fab too. My 3 boys dragged me onto the dance floor for a little while where we did a strange circular dance that made sense to them... Georgie loved it and kept shouting "Dance!" and playing in the lights. Jack, we barely saw once the music started. Tom preferred to stick to his Dad's side - but that's Tom all over!

By about 10:15pm they were ready to go so we drove back to the hotel and they passed out just before 11pm. They slept the whole way home!

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
