Baby S will turn 6 months old just before Christmas. You might think I’m mean, but I’m not going to spend much money on him… I’d rather keep it back for when he’s older!
He has all the clothes, toys and books he needs from his hand-me-downs from big brother W! For W’s first Christmas 2 years ago we bought him small toys like stacking cups, sensory balls and sensory books. So it means we’ve struggled to think of anything S really needs…
This year I am proper excited for Christmas. It’s the first year W has any idea what’s going on so I’m already enjoying the build-up… he loves Christmas trees and lights, and has a good understanding of what Santa’s about!
So it was lovely yesterday to meet the big man himself at the launch of Santa’s post office in Cardiff Bay. (He isn’t usually at Santa’s post office – he was only there for the launch!)
W got to tell him what he’d like for Christmas (choo choo trains) and what his baby brother would like (milk and cars!).
It’s been a tough few weeks, since our lovely week in Bluestone, my cousin died, mum’s been having chemo for liver cancer, my other half was ill with the flu and both boys got viruses, on top of the 4 months of sleep deprivation!
Soooo it was great to have some one-on-one time with W last Sunday, to dust off the cobwebs we headed to one of my favourite local places – mountain view ranch.
My cousin died last weekend (see news story here) but I’m not after your sympathy, I can pass that on to his wife and 3 young children, his mum and his siblings, his nephews and nieces. And his hundreds of close friends.
Baby S turned 4 months old on Friday. In his last update I called him a delicate flower and now I would describe him as a sensitive soul!
We’re coming to the end of wonder weeks leap 4 and so it’s been a bit up and down the last few weeks – yesterday he was really grouchy all day, today he’s not really been grouchy at all. But I call him sensitive because he can be fine one minute, and the next he can scream like I’ve never seen a scream before! Bless him 😍 Continue reading “Baby S’s 4 month update “
