Although Dinky Doo will have to have a name change soon as he is not so Dinky anymore... yesterday we had him weighed and he is a whopping 10lbs 10oz now! He's grown out of his new born clothes which was a sad day... putting them all away never to be worn by a baby of mine again... sob!This was my favourite babygro which was worn, washed, ironed and worn again constantly... and I just loved this photo with his eyes wide open.These photos were taken a couple of days ago after Drew got the lovely outfit in the post from Dr Eileen, a very lovely UKS team member... thank you Eileen, he looks adorable in it, and Bear loves the Bear toy.
Speaking of Bear... does anyone know how to stop a 2 year old bulldozer from having constant bruises on his face?!?!? I swear people will start to think I am beating him up soon... we've had 4 big bruises on his face in the past 3 weeks! This first pic was a cracker of a bruise that went straight down his forehead and face after a collision with the school railings!!! It was one of those moments where the whole playground went silent... except Harry!!!The latest was done whilst in Daddy's 'care'. Only a man would let a freshly bathed child go out to play on the watered lawn in his pjs... an accident waiting to happen and it clearly did! The black eye doesn't look to bad on this photo but that is because Harry is squinting... he really does look like he's had a bit of a to do with Ricky Hatton!!!
Bear maybe a bruiser and always in some sort of trouble or other, but at the end of the day he's also still my baby and still needs his afternoon nap.... seen here snuggle up on Daddy along with Dinky Doo in his papoose!
harry also has a new love in his life... her name is Marigold and yes she is a cow! We have been to Reddish Vale Farm Park a couple of time over the holidays and I have to say it is love. He goes on about her all the time, pretends he is on the phone to Marigold and carries 3 pictures around with him pretty much everywhere!!!
At the same farm park there is an area where the kids can play in the straw. Strange how the only two children actually in there were mine, and typically Oliver came out the worse off in the straw fight that lasted 15 minutes and would have been longer had we not of broken it up before Bear got too carried away!
Yesterday I had an Ofsted inspection so am waiting for the results of that. It'll be interesting as when the inspector knocked on the door I had Dinky in my arms having just thrown up all over him and me. Harry and Freya had tipped most of their dinners on the dining room floor and the house was a general tip. She didn't give much away so I'll just have to wait and see...watch this space!
One last thing. A big fat congratulations to my best friend Annie, her Rob and beautiful girly Lola on the safe arrival of Jonas Henry.... we can't wait to meet him.
