The Little Mister loves his baths and he is shaping up to be a real water baby.
Most days The Mister will bathe him and I can hear him chatting away and The Little Mister giggling and screeching with pleasure. It’s just delightful.
The Little Mister has been enrolled in swimming lessons starting in September, but we are going for a holiday in Jersey in a few weeks so we will see if the hotel swimming pool is warm enough for him. I am not sure he will like the cold but I think he will love the water!
The Mister’s brother lives in America and has not yet had the pleasure of meeting his gorgeous nephew yet, although he is coming over in June to spend some time with us which will be lovely.
Uncle David sent him this very cute Philadelphia Eagles vest which he is modelling here.
We are all looking forward to seeing you soon David!
Just a quick post today as I am not feeling great. Hope I’m not coming down with flu or something.
The Little Mister looks like he is scheming in this picture, Maybe he is scheming how many ways he can refuse to take milk in his bottle. Little pest!
Our poor boy has a nasty cold which seems to have been making him a bit pukey. Poor little thing is coughing and sniffing all over the place.
We were having a lovely snuggle when he suddenly puked all over my shoulder. Gross! Minutes after this he was all smiles again though.
I hope he gets over it soon because I hate seeing him poorly.
Today the last of our visitors went home and my in-laws moved in for a few days.
We have had a brilliant week with our friends visiting. It is such a privilege to have friends who are willing to travel and spend time with us and we try to grab a few weeks together over the year, whether it is camping, over New Year or at Greenbelt.
The Little Mister seems to tolerate sitting in his ring for a while as long as he has some toys to play with and chew on. It’s great to have somewhere to put him for little while whilst I cook a meal or tidy up. This is my son and my father-in-law entertaining each other – they were smiling away at each other which was quite entertaining.
Today we had a really lovely day as it was The Little Mister’s thanksgiving service. We decided not to have him baptised but wanted to have a little service to say thankyou to God for him and welcome him into the Christian church.
Lots of our family attended which was really special for us and we were thrilled that they could share our day with us. Also my Uncle Nick was able to do the service as he is a Bishop in Argentina and was over visiting for a few days. Today’s picture is of part of the service and obviously wasn’t taken by me. My Auntie Karen sent it to me and she also does photo of the day and she blips over here.
Here is also a bonus picture as I just love this photo of my beautiful boy. He is also wearing the most awesome tank top ever!
Morning! This was what greeted me on waking up today.
I think he is looking much older than his 15 weeks, and he has a really strong neck and back. I moved him out of his Cocoon into the proper sitting up buggy. I did this because yesterday when we were out walking he was wide awake and looking around. Today however, by the time I had finished faffing about with the buggy he was sound asleep. Typical!
(Sorry it is another baby picture which must be getting rather dull for some people. The rest of my day consisted of cleaning, cooking and lunch with my parents. No other interesting photos at all!)
Our little bear is such a smiler these days. He has this gorgeous lopsided grin that makes my heart skip a beat.
When I see his little face it makes me remember that all those disappointing months were worth it. I remember all too well the disappointment and the fear that it would never happen. We are very fortunate, that much I know.
I still hope and pray for those of my friends who haven’t managed it yet. I hope they do. The wait is worth it.
The Little Mister has a new friend called Sophie the Giraffe.
She arrived in the post this morning and The Little Mister already loves chewing on her nose. This toy is meant to be really good for teething babies as it is easy to grasp and soft to chew on. It also squeaks so it kind of reminds me of a dog toy!
This evening The Little Mister rolled from lying on his tummy and pushed himself onto his back. He did it twice but refused to perform when I got the camera out!
Today we were at my parents house for lunch.
I left The Little Mister asleep in the hallway whilst we had our meal and when I went out to check on him it would seem he had been partying all on his own.
I think Grandpa might have been responsible for this photo somehow because he thought it was hilarious!
