Now that Roslyn doesn’t just sleep all day we’ve been spending a bit more time at home.
It was easier to just sling her up and let her zzz the day away while sandy and I played. Now she’s awake a lot more especially in the afternoons and doesn’t want to just sit in the sling but kick about so we’ve been embracing the old homestead.
And of course the garden. Sandy has been having a blast out there as it’s been so warm. He’s been playing under the tap, chasing me as I cut the grass and eating strawberries from the garden. Speaking of, why is it my son will eat the strawberries from the garden but when offered some from the house (after a tantrum about there being none left outside) he refuses? We took to secretly planting shop bought ones among the leaves of the plants for him to “pick”. It’s wrong that I’m considering sewing sausages to the leaves to get him to eat, isn’t it?
Roslyn is the tummy time queen!!
I’m loving mornings and evenings at home just playing with these two monsters.
And their daddy of course.
I live for these moments. Ones where sandy lies on top of his sister (eek) and kisses (um, sucks..) his sisters head for an eternity. He loves her so much.
His biggest kisses always go to Roslyn. Always.
And little cuddles too. Though I must admit recently he’s been a mummy’s boy full of massive tight neck cuddles complete with little pats on my back. LOVE OVERLOAD!
Love me a husband who photobombs one’s whimsical photographs of their beautiful daughter.
And adorable ones of their son.
Such a fun loving lad of late. He’s finally finishing up on those incisors. Top two are all in and the bottom two are peeking through. He’s finally sleeping through again sometimes and I can see a trend of a happy day and a sleep through, a mardy day and night wakings. It makes me feel better when there is a reason.
Sandy has also been advancing in the world of imaginative play. He brought his shopping trolley in and let stuart buy a tin of beans from it and took the imaginary penny from him for it.
Mind you, he still prefers the real deal when it comes to making “tea”.
In other news papa is back from his Hebridean travels and in high demand from two grandchildren.
He came bearing gifts which went down well. Roslyn got a pink hippo that makes a purring noise. She sat and talked to it for half an hour happily, a record! Sandy got this car rain jacket which folds up into a wee backpack, he loved it too! Luckily we haven’t had the weather to use it yet but when we do he will be set.
Speaking of weather here is a lovely misty morning we had the other day.
And here is a little girl now moving into her 3-6 month clothing. Roslyn styles floral bloomers and looks radiant!
She’s pretty happy with herself.
Cheeky tongue sticking out.
I must always have the camera to hand just now to capture all sorts of heart warming moments that arise from every day life. Sometimes I forget it’s on manual though… But the moment is too sweet to stop me posting the too dark picture.
Sandy’s eating is slowly getting better. We had a little BBQ the other night and he ate a roll with butter and tomato sauce (weirdo) a little bit of papas roll with sausage in, a peach and a bunch of “home grown” strawberries. Not bad going. I’ve been advised to focus on the nutritional week, rather than the day, so that’s helping. Plus now I see more of a correlation between teeth and sleep it makes me worry less for loads of night waking a due to an empty tummy (though sometimes it is apparent that that is what’s going on).
While we had the barbecue next doors two little girls who are 5 and 3 started shouting “sandy! Sandy!”. He ran over all excited to see them and had a chat. I didn’t catch what he was saying but today he was over again and launched into his most comfortable verbal territory:
“Daddy’s car! daddy…the car. Daddy’s beep beep car! Daddy!! DADDYS….CAAAAARRRRRR!”
What a conversationalist.
Well, that’s me all blogged up to present and ready to hit the commonwealth games! On Wednesday we have tickets to see belle and Sebastian at kelvingrove bandstand, and then on Thursday it’s weightlifting. We are taking sandy into town for commonwealth fun, lunch at jamie Oliver’s and the merchant city festival on Friday. Then it’s sandy’s friend Aaron’s birthday party on Saturday, a brief respite and back out for hockey the following week. So it’s a busy time for us. Roslyn’s got her ear protectors looked out and the baby sitters are on standby for sandy… Wish us luck!
