Have you got use to writing 2017 yet or do you still put 2016? Because I’m not at work but staying home with my wee ones, I very rarely write the date so I of course filled my daughter’s baby diary in with all 2016 dates. That’s dates 6 months before she was even born claiming she has started solids which is no mean feat!
When we were down visiting my sister last weekend Aiden helped bake some little cupcakes. He was delighted to play chef and thankfully he is much better than me and they were yummy.
Although it was rather wet and rainy for most of the weekend we did manage a walk and a trip to a really amazing adventure park and cafe. This was the very first time Faye has been on the swings. With Aiden flying high and squealing next to her, she loved every minute of it.
Aren’t siblings the best? Faye is totally besotted with Aiden. She hangs on his every word and finds him absolutely hilarious.
Every time we are down visiting my parents Aiden wants to play in the garden. They have so so many garden toys for him to play with that are all kept in a special shed just for his things. Today he found a fairy and had a good chatter to her.
The kids are chocked with the cold and from the amount of really lovely cuddles and kisses I have been getting off them I am sure to be struck down too. So today we decided to make things as easy as we could for ourselves. Aiden picked Lego Star Wars to watch. It is really good! (I say surprised and grateful he didn’t pick Dora the Explorer again! What utter drivel!)
Faye rolled fully over on her own today! Just suddenly out of the blue over she went. I was so happy because it seems with the second child a lot of these milestones are missed. Even Aiden started shouting yeay Faye well done!
Aiden and I are still full of the cold but we are going the theatre today which we always all absolutely love. If I could I would go every single day, I kid you now. Before then my folks have taken the kids out to play so I can catch up on a bit of work and put my feet up. I love my folks for many many reasons but one big one is definitely how great they are with their grandchildren.
