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

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

Recipe Review: Hairy Bikers liver & bacon with onions & gravy

I need a bit of comfort food at this time of year. I really love this recipe from The Hairy Bikers:  Liver and bacon with onions and gravy  and freely admit that I have whipped this from the BBC Food website. I follow the recipe (but sometimes chuck some mushrooms in too) and split it four ways at 11 pro points per serving. It's a classic, and even my 6 year old likes liver cooked like this - the 4 & 2 year olds need a little extra ketchup to convince them. The Hairy Bikers’ traditional liver and bacon makes a simple supper packed full of flavour and bursting with vitamins and minerals Ingredients 450g/1lb lambs’  liver , sliced and fully thawed if frozen 25g/1oz  butter 2 tbsp  sunflower oil 4 tbsp  plain flour 1  onion , halved lengthways and sliced 125g/4½oz rindless streaky  bacon  rashers, each cut into 4–5 pieces 1  beef stock  cube 500ml/18fl oz  jus t-boiled water 1–2 tsp tomato  ketchup salt and freshly ground  black pepper Preparation method Rinse the liver in a cola
