On Monday, we went swimming and afterwards Thomas came home and chilled out with some chocolate milk.
On Tuesday, I went to work then came home and made vegetable soup.
On Thursday, Thomas tried a monkey costume borrowed from a friend on, to see if it would fit for a fancy dress day at nursery soon. I think it is a bit big for him this year but he will hopefully be able to wear it next year.
Today, we went and visited Thomas' cousins and they were playing with something called 'Wammys'. Thomas enjoyed having a hat made for him and liked to model it for us
Yesterday, we went to the Birmingham Nature Centre for the first time. The nature centre is a small zoo located near Cannon Hill Park, just off the Pershore Road in Birmingham. It was very cold and quite a few of the animals were hiding but we did get to see lots of monkeys, meerkats, birds, sheep, goats, and otters. It was a lovely way to pass a morning. Thomas enjoyed it as I took him on his trike, meaning he could see and interact more with the animals. I am hoping we can return to the nature centre in the summer when the weather is warmer!
I have not taken part in The Gallery for a while but I could not resist when I saw this week’s theme of ‘boys‘. Here are my boys in a picture taken a few days after they first met. Thomas was only 3-4 days old when this was taken. This is one of my most favourite photos I have ever taken, showing the two people I love the most. Since this photo was taken, Thomas has grown into a cheeky independent toddler and Stuart has become my husband. They are both still my boys and always will be
Last week, the parent blogging community was shocked when Jennie of Edspire announced that her girl Matilda Mae had died in her sleep at 9 months old. I have never met Jennie but have followed her blog for a while. I have been thinking all week about writing a post about it but I have been struggling to find the right words to say. I am still struggling with what to say but I just wanted to let Jennie and her family know that they are in my thoughts constantly. I just want to give them all a hug and take the pain away. Other bloggers including Jennie herself have been able to beautifully word tributes for Matilda Mae. I do not have the way with words which they do but I would like to encourage everyone to donate some money to Bliss who are a charity for premature and poorly babies, which is a charity close to Jennie's heart.
Rest In Peace Matilda Mae – You are the brightest star in the sky xxx
On Sunday, Thomas tried to feed himself yoghurt. He is still getting it everywhere but more spoonfuls are now generally heading in the right direction!
On Monday, we went shopping and I got Thomas some play fruit and vegetables. When we got home, Thomas enjoyed sorting it and putting it in his shopping basket
On Wednesday, Thomas had a day with Daddy as the nursery was closed for training. When I got home from work, I got lots of cuddles
On Friday, we went to my Grandad's 80th birthday party. Thomas enjoyed seeing everyone and had a great time
Today, we have had a relaxing day and Thomas has played with a balloon from the party last night
