Oh Baby O. How I love your arms. Such chunky, bunky bundles of squishiness. Nom, nom, nom!
Grandma came swimming with us on this day - it was on her birthday, in fact. She loved swimming with Little R (he loved it too), then I swam with you. Lots of giggling, splashing and chatting in the water. Grandma got in a muddle with the towels though. She struggled to wrap Little R up in a tiny white towel, but then you got to relax in his HUGE scuba diver towel!
Playing with music. You loved grabbing hold of these bells and the rattle and listening to the sounds you were making. When I helped you to shake them, you giggled and squirmed with glee.
I'm loving pairing up your summer rompers, which only just fit now that it's getting colder, with long sleeved-vests and tights. Cosy and CUTE!
Last night was Bake-Off final evening, and I'm going to hedge my bets now and say you're going to be a little baker, because you refused to fall asleep until after the final had finished. You were very interested. You were also very determined to SEE what was going on on the screen. You twisted yourself almost in half trying to get a view but I was even more determined, so I kept you turned away. You are too little for hyper-stimulating television, young lady. It was a bloomin' good night of television, though!
Enjoying some October sunshine. Little R was busy washing some toys which we've been using in the garden all summer, but which need to come in for the winter, so need to be CLEAN. You really love being outside - you love looking at the leaves, the sky and everything around you. The outside is so much more interesting than the inside. Outside, everything is always moving and making noises. Babies weren't made to be kept inside the walls of a house. I was sitting out there trying to work out ways we can continue playing outside on horrid wintery days. This being Britain, I feel there will be some days just LOOKING out the window will be the best I'll manage!
