how time flies

Goodness, it’s 3 months since my last post for E’s 4th birthday in January. I guess a lot has happened in that time but in a rather ordinary, not very blog worthy way (or perhaps I’ve just been too tired!) Es birthday card - inside cropped
I celebrated my birthday in February and for the the first time in about 5 years (and the last probably for another 5 years) G and I had a meal out and overnight stay in a hotel. It was lovely but we ate too much and didn’t sleep well in our too-hot hotel room. We spoke of hopes for a blissful lie in. We woke at E’s usual 6am and were ravenous by the time we found ourselves first in line for the breakfast buffet at 7.30am. It was lovely of course but like many parents we were more keen to get back to our little fella than lounge around reading newspapers. (that’s a 30 week bump by the way not too much dinner!)

E’s being enjoying extra park dates with Daddy, grandparents and friends as I’ve found it increasingly difficulty to spend time standing around (oh the joy of a small frame and a big bump!)

Last month we visited the local primary school we want E to attend and this week we were lucky enough to find he has a place there for September.

And once April arrived we had the excitement of waiting to greet our new baby.
And waiting. And waiting. Despite our best efforts to help him along, including ”bumping bums” with his big brother, the baby is just too snug.
We’re hoping today is the day we finally meet him. We waved E off to playgroup this morning after taking this photo and the next time we see him will be when his baby is here (well that’s the plan, currently awaiting a call back from the hospital that they have a bed for us!). Bring it on!!!

    […] weeks ago E bounced ‘bum to bum’ with his brother for the last time before I went into hospital to be induced.  Two days later beautiful baby Luca arrived weighing 9lb […]

Lunch served on a bed of allotment grown lettuce to make up for the distinct lack of a certain green ingredient from my Greek Salad (I can't really call it that anyway as I can't resist adding balsamic vinegar). #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife

Fathers Day came and went with G having to work away for the day and me being busy with the boys at my parents. So I didn't get the chance to say what a brilliant, supportive and kind Father and husband G is. This is Luca at 4 days old snugged into his Dad's hoody when I was too ill with an infection to hold him We were cup feeding him expressed milk because he had a tongue tie and couldn't nurse. Hard times are always made easier with @musicalgeorgemoorey by my side. #nipitinthebudblog #coparentingdad #gloucesterlife
"This is the stuff of nightmares". If you're living and loving through childhood cancer, know someone who is or simply care about others please read and share @the_tightrope_walker 's latest post.

Both boys are home with coughs and colds today so home-made #wildgarlicpestopasta for lunch is about as wild as it's going to get today #30dayswild
Lots of redcurrant jelly makers out there judging by this week's blog stats. #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife #redcurrantjelly
We haven't even left the bedroom yet and Euan's got his nature head on for #30dayswild - pretending to be Walter the slug from Beatbugs using his IKEA tunnel! @gloswildlife #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog
Day 16 of #30dayswild - reading nature stories at bedtime. One of E's favourites 'The winter hedgehog'. When I said to E we hadn't really done a random act of wildness today he immediately replied "yes we did, we went outside, we looked at flowers and Luca picked up pine cones on the way to Alfie's party". Oh yes! #gloucesterlife #nipitinthebudblog @gloswildlife
Spotted Superboy out and about in Gloucester today! #nipitinthebudblog #gloucesterlife
