Today Sammy and I went pram shopping. It was lovely. Firstly because I could actually shop without ‘the fear’ (of a toddler spilling/smashing/shouting/stamping on something). Secondly because Sammy got all the attention. Thirdly because it was just us for the first time since in hospital after he was born. We went to John Lewis. I… Continue reading Mummy-Sammy shopping trip
Today we had tea with the boys Slender cousin Martha and Uncle Jamie. Everyone had a lovely time together playing and the toddlers ‘painted’ the chairs (with water).

This evening we walked to the local shop, just Sammy, Daddy and me. Sammy was all snuggled up tight for his evening stroll.
Here are my boys today. What brotherly love. Sammy at nine days old has changed today. He’s much more alert, properly focussing on faces and shadows / outlines near to his face. He’s had more awake time today than ever before, studying things, especially his big brother. The pob is wanting Sammy to wake up,… Continue reading 2013 365 #142 ‘Brotherly love’
Today we went to the park. The pob learnt to balance beautifully and walked the tightrope under Daddy’s watchful eye as I fed Sammy. He was so proud of himself shouting over ‘look mummy!’
