Freddie's Half Birthday!

Ikle Freddie is 6 months old today!


I love this little chap SO much! I am still really enjoying him being a baby. I'm still wearing him in the sling most days - I can't remember the last time I put him in the buggy. I'm still breastfeeding him, although he does have some solids he still chooses boobs over mush most meal times. We're still co-sleeping with him! The mattress has arrived for his cot bed but neither me nor the Hubby have done anything about it yet! He takes up most of the bed with his Starfishing and kicking, but it is so nice having him close to us.

I wish wish WISH I had had the confidence to parent Jack like this. I hardly wore him, barely ever co-slept, and had him on a bottle at 9 months. I did more with Tom, and more again with George, and now with Freddie I feel like we can do it all. It's not made any difference to my relationships with them, or to their health or mental well being... but it makes me feel better. Freddie is a very calm baby and I believe that's because we are more into this "attachment parenting" this time. Parenting a calm and happy baby is much easier than a fussy one!

I'm amazed that we are halfway to his first birthday already. I have no idea where the time has gone. I am still rocked by the thought that it won't be long before he is a toddler. He SO wants to be moving and following his brothers. He clearly loves each and every one of them. He adores his Daddy too, and loves to tug his beard. He snuggles up to Daddy at night for loves (and me for feeds).

Happy Half Birthday to my Littlest Man! Love you Freddie! xxxx

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…

Bath night with these two horrors!
