Mum and Barry came down recently, we had a wonderful weekend - it goes so quickly. Have a look at her blog for some wonderful photo's of the weekend ;) http://www.picperfics.blogspot.com/
I'm going to do an update for each of my angels so that I don't miss anything out!
She is off to junior school in September and is getting very excited about it. As all parents say - I can't believe how fast she has grown up! - It was watch day at her dance school this saturday and we sat through a very enjoyable 1 and 3/4 hours of ballet, tap and modern. She is definitely going to be something artistic when she is older.
She has spent a day in hospital as she banged her head during a swimming lesson and gave herself concussion, she was okay but the Dr wanted to keep her in for a while as the headache and sickness lasted longer than 24 hours. I've lost the little camera so I don't have a photo of her for you today :(
Oh - look at Mum's blog for a video of her doing a cheerleading routine in her school summer fair :)
Maddie has been her usual jumping, hopping, skipping, bouncing self. She is off to Infant school in September and can't wait. She has really enjoyed the four visits she has been on and keeps wanting to wear her school uniform.
She was delicious when we watched her doing ballet this weekend, she has very 'good' toes!
He's now almost 8 months old, he is sitting up but thankfully he is not on the move yet! I breastfed him exclusively until he was 6 months old. He's now on 3 meals a day plus puddings and breastfeeds. He is so active during the day I think he needs all the food he can get. He loves finger foods and things such as lentil soup and cheesy mashed potato. His favourite is pasta stars with a creamy tomato sauce.
He was poorly last week and has had a course of antibiotics for a perforated ear drum. He's absolutely fine now though, back to being our little happy chap who wakes us up in the morning by blowing raspberries!
I finished this jumper for him last night., It is Jake from Rowan Babies by Kim Hargreaves. Knit in patons Washed Haze Aran, size 6-12 months. I love it, perfect for this wet summer we are 'enjoying'!
I have finished Elspeth - yet to take a photo and put it on ravelry. It's the first thing for me that I have loved. I think I am going to make 'A cardigan for Arwen' next, just have to find the perfect yarn....suggestions?
Well, Maddie is off to preschool in a minute and needs to take lunch with her that I haven't made yet and then I will be trying to find space to move in the house. We are doing the kitchen and most of the kitchen is now in the dining room and most of the dining room is now in the front room! Arrgghh!
