It’s been an exciting week for us this week. Everything has been a little upside down with our new move over to my parents. It’s been a week full of adventures (and bruises) as we all learn to navigate living together. Apparently in toddler terms this translates to ‘finding every new hiding place, plug socket and death trap’. But we’ve made it through the first week and we’re all alive. No-one’s killed anyone and the most contentious thing has been sorting the recycling so I think we’ll survive!
This weekend has been focused on me for a change. On Saturday, I turned thirty one (sob!) so it’s been a weekend of celebrations. It’s funny that only six weeks ago we were having to help him open his own presents and yet now, he’s ripping in to mine like nobodies business. He even managed to sneak himself his first bit of chocolate whilst I unwrapped – a Hotel Chocolat one, clearly the child has taste! He’s really starting to assert himself more and more these days. His words are coming on leaps and bounds and he’s started making it very clear what he does (and doesn’t) want to do. Unfortunately that also means we’ve had quite a few bumps and knocks as he tends to throw himself off things. I think this photo perfectly sums life up at the moment… he’s got Daddy and Grandma trying to stop him throwing himself off the bench!
