167. Happy Halloween!

Our Halloween morning consisted of Halloween inspired crafts and a super-long, early nap. I knew we wouldn;t be taking Daniel Trick or Treating, as I think he's too young, but I still wanted to do something 'festive' so I got out some orange & black paper, pens and paint and let him go to town. It didn't keep him occupied for that long, this kiddo gets bored pretty easily (after lunch we went to the park, where he played on everything for approximately one second and then climbed back into his pushchair to go home!) so after painting he had a bath & put his costume on, then came back downstairs to do drawing. Mom fail, these are the only pictures I got of Daniel in his outfit, as my camera needed charging & we had a nappy leak while I was taking a nap (Thankyou so much Colin!) I haven;t been feeling that well, so party plans were abandoned, I didn;t even get to carve my pumpkin!! Next year ladies, will be awesome, I promise!

164. Best Friends.

Apologies for being so absent, luckily everything's back to normal now, & I am SO pleased about that! Tonight I'm home alone as Colin's gone out with the guys from work, so I'm snuggled on the sofa with a plate of chips and a pussycat, catching up on blogging! Major downside is that I need a drink but am too cosy to move! #lazy

Daniel & our new kitten, Milo, are absolutely adorable together! Milo follows Daniel round all the time, and the first thing Daniel wants to do when he wakes up/gets home is find Milo! Daniel picks up his toys and wants Milo to play, but gets cross if he's not interested. He's also always trying to force him to eat, strange kiddo! I'm so glad we got a pet when Daniel's so young, he has no fear (even when Milo's having a funny five minutes!) & that's really awesome to watch!

Yes, my living room is always this messy. Despite the frustration, I think it's important that Daniel's toys are always at his level so he is in charge of his own creativity. Basically, this means my floor is always covered in crayons!

Daniel and I have had a lovely day today, at Ascot races with my parents. It was reaaallly cold, but chasing a toddler round warmed me up! Daniel loved seeing the horses, and eating his way through Nanny's picnic! There were fireworks at the end, Daniel's first display and he was good as gold - not even a little bit scared! My babyboy and I, snuggled under a blanket watching the fireworks, watching his little face light up and his fingers wrap round mine, was absolutely magical!

163. Blogging break.

I just wanted to let you guys know that I won't be posting for a while. I'm going through some personal stuff right now, & my time is best spent with my adorable baby boy & family.

I'll be back as soon as I can!

162. Meet Milo...

MRemember on Friday I mentioned we were going to see a kitten? Well, he was completely adorable & we fell in love, so we e-mailed our landlady to ask her if we could have one, and SHE SAID YES! I was so excited when Colin phoned to tell me, & I text the girl whose kitten we wanted to ask if we could pick him up today!

Check out our gorgeous little cat (who is currently asleep on Colin, ears twitching!)!


Daniel was a little wary when we went to visit him, liking to point & squeal but backed away whenever he came too close! But today, when we went to collect him, he went right up to him & wasn;t scared at all! He ignored him for a while once we got home, shouting whenever he saw the "TAT!". Then Daniel got really brave & started stroking him! Too cute for words! He even blew kisses when we went upstairs for a bath! I can just tell they're going to be the best of friends!

We practiced sitting on the potty, until then he would only stand in it! We took a couple if things back to Asda, & ended up replacing them with Halloween goodies! Nana & Grandad popped round in the evening & lots of giggles ensued!

We checked out the Pirate ship park on the way home from our childminders, & Daniel had a whale of a time! We played Peek-a-boo, picked flowers and jumped on drains on the way to Nanny & Grandad's for dinner.

Wednesday 12th October

Daddy came home for lunch & we all ate together - silly little things that make my heart so happy! We had a movie afternoon & ate popcorn while we watched Aladdin! I made a (pretty scrummy, if I do say so myself!) vegetable pie with roast potatoes!

IMappedMyWalk to my childminders & home :) We chilled on the sofa & watched Peppa Pig, a really funny episode, while Mama ate lunch. We did some drawing with crayons, Daniel's getting really good at scribbling! We played in the garden & Daniel told me to sit on the steps while he ran off and played! Big boy much! We ate veggie sausages, tomato rice & vegetables for dinner. We snuggled on the sofa - perfection - & splashed in the bath ALOT. I made spinach & ricotta stuffed mushrooms for dinner, yummm!

We had lots of fun playing with Grandad, building towers. We had a mini photo shoot after Daniel started shouting "CHEESE!" at Grandad's phone! I had a haircut, finally! We enjoyed our dinner! Daniel had rice & fish finers & I had vegetable chilli.

We started off the day with a game of peek-a-boo & watching ourselves in the mirror. We took an early morning stroll to the park, which ended up being a Momfail because it was cold & wet, so I tempted Daniel home with snacks & Peppa. We had a yummy lunch - pasta, broccoli & peas with pesto - even Daniel approved! I made garlic-cheesy-pizza-bread, from scratch!

We spent the morning reading books & lazing around. Isn;t my kid just super stylish?! He begged me to put his shoes & socks on! We took more photos together! & we went to Nana & Grandad's, with teddy in tow (our latest word!)

Obviously, I'm linking up with Amy for Our Week in iPhone Pictures!
