18 months!

Today my little guy celebrated his 18 months birthday. First big thing was that he slept till 8.15 am. There are times when as a mother I can't really decide whether I should be freaking out that something might have happened or to just enjoy the few moments of peace in the morning before he awakes ready to take over the day. My little guy seems to be growing up so quickly, he will now stay in the church nursery without any issues happily playing and doesn't even scream upon me leaving or arriving. Which I have to say that I enjoy. Occasionally when teeth are bad or we just managed to awake from the wrong side life can appear to be ending but most of the time life is good.

Once again the delights of teething has hit our household. This time however it griped tighter than it ever has before. My poor little guy has had a runny nose which in turn has lead to a cough, diaper rash and just moments of screaming. This so far has been going on for days and finally today I saw white! Yes the smallest bit of tooth has broken through the gum on both sides. In turn the nose is drying up and the diaper rash is vanishing. So hopefully peace can reign. Well OK the crying will reduce.

Getting Dry!

My little guy has come to quite enjoy his baths now. We have bubbles and blocks and many other things to keep ourselves entertained, whilst mummy dear scrubs out the potatoes from behind the ears etc. The only thing now is once we are out of the bath we have to get dry and that is now what we scream about. However I have come up with a plan! That is once we are out of the bath we play chase. My little guy runs around and I chase after him. Once caught we have a rub down with the towel before being release and chasing again. So drying has now become a game and now only screams of delight can be heard. And since I have wooden floors in the landing I also don't have to worry about soggy carpet. So we all win.

Slides, bubbles and bunnies.

This morning since the weather as dropped to a cooler level I decided we would go outside and play. While we were outside I also took out the new foster bunnies we have and let them have a run about in the pen. my little guy decided he wanted in the pen and to stroke them. After which we decided to run around after the bubbles and my little guy squealed with delight. Followed by climbing on the trucks we have, backwards. I don't think he has quite figured out which was is which or how you can move them but my little chap is getting closer. Then he decided to climb up and down the slides which was all great fun. This tired out my little guy completely and having got up really early this morning he started to meltdown. And so he is now having an early nap. He tried to protest about the whole thing but fell asleep before he could really scream.

All in the line say "What a cutie!"

The other week me and my little guy set off to the post office. It was a nice day so I decided to walk the half mile there and back. At the post office it was quite busy and my little guy decided that it was his job to entertain all in the line behind us with giggles and peek-a-boo's. I think all in all he had 12 people laping it up with sounds of "oh he is so cute" and "just look at the smile".

We also went to the store and my little one decided that being in a cart was a thing worse than death and so we screamed till I could think no more. So against my better judgment I let him run around. I have to say that little guy had a complete blast running around the store never going to far from me but staring at people and then smiling before running back to me. Everyone smiled and waved and even gave a few games of peek-a-boo. I think fun was had by all.

Over the labour day weekend we decided to have our house warming. We scrubbed our house till it shone and I doubt it will ever look this good again. We had over about 60 people through the evening and my little guy loved all the fun and kids and everyone. He ran this way and he ran that. Now it is over, I have to clean again but it was all worth it!

8 years!

Ok people don't panic my little lad has not just leap to the grand old age of eight. There has been no time warp, but what has happened is that me and my hubby have been married 8 years today. So to acknowledge this event we went out on our OWN. I know the hock the horror but it was great. Conversation without screaming or chatter or the clatter of cups and toys being thrown. We also went for a walk around the town centre and it was then that I realised I have truly passed into a new stage of life. Shops that I once viewed as grown up and hip have passed into being too young but kids clothing store now look like fair game. When I think about it I have passed through young and carefree a while ago not that I am in anyway sorry it has gone. But I am married, I have a kid and I own a house! Oh no I am sensible!!! and grown up!!!!!! Quick run for the hills!!!!!!!

On a sad note Sable the fish passed onto fishy heaven, the other two are still going sstrong so now they have passed the first week I feel I might have them for a few months
