Our Thursday Photo #40

Ah 40 weeks. I knew there was something that rang a bell about that number. Apparently it’s how long a pregnancy is supposed to last. Not so for me, I was induced both times. So I should be able to tell you that Lia has now been out as long as she was in. But not just yet, give me another couple of weeks. But I’m not bitter.  So, Lia’s 40th week could only possibly be classed as busy. I’ve had quite a bit of work on for a while now, but this is the first time I’ve had so much on that…

I’m very aware of how much both girls are growing up and changing each week, but occasionally something really makes me stop and think about it.  This week, the trigger has been lots of talk about school. I overheard a conversation earlier in the week about the problem parents face when taking school age children on holiday.  Some people were willing to take their children out of school to avoid the price hikes during holidays and all of them were complaining about the fact that they could be penalised for doing so.  We’re not yet in that position ourselves, but…

Libby has been busy making herself the centre of attention this week. At a time when I hear on the news that children are no longer learning to speak properly because of their reliance on iPads and computers, Libby is proving them all wrong.  This evening, I put Lia to bed and went to see Libby. She comes and sits with me for a few minutes after Lia has fallen asleep. When I went in today, the conversation went something like this:  Libby: Is Lia asleep?  Me: Yeah, she is.  Libby: She’s very good now isn’t she? She’s sleeping well…

This week, we have been getting used to the new dynamic of having two mobile children in the house. It’s just over a week since Lia started crawling now, and it really does make a big difference.  I have to be much more careful when I nip out of the room. Lia doesn’t seem to be particularly destructive, but she has a strange habit of wanting to be in things.  So far this week, I’ve found her under two tables, a piano, three chairs, a talking dog and her sister. This afternoon I found her sat on the shelf with…

Our Thursday Photo #35

I’ve just sat down to write this post and looked back at last week’s Thursday photo to check what number I was up to. I can’t believe my last Thursday photo was only a week ago, we’ve had so many adventures since then.  Today, we made the most of our last full day at Bluestone. We went swimming in the Blue Lagoon then headed over to the adventure centre for soft play before lunch. After lunch, hubby took Libby to toddler sensory while Lia had a nap. Toddler sensory was just Libby’s sort of thing, playing with gym equipment and…
