52 photos – week 45

    I know the quality of these photos is rubbish, but they just wouldn’t stay still enough for long enough for me to take any better ones. And they didn’t both look at the camera at the same time, so here’s one photo with each of them looking at me! This was in Birmingham Central Library this week. We

Activity play – wot so funee?

Gone are the days that I have time to blog loads of funees from every week. But as we’ve had an early morning, I thought I’d blog one from each boy that we’ve had a giggle at this week….. Andrew is looking forward to Christmas already. The build up has started at nursery, and he’s getting very involved in the

Just a plain 2nd birthday cake

I know, it’s a bad pun, but it had to be said, particularly as Andrew has made that mistake between plain and plane in the past leading to some funny situations. When I was trying to decide what kind of cake to make Joel for his 2nd birthday, I had a few options: different kinds of transport – car, bus,

52 photos – week 44

This week’s favourite photos were taken when we visited Mary Arden’s Farm near Stratford upon Avon last weekend. It was a lot of fun and I took lots of photos. I thought these, the classic stand behind a board with a hole in type shot, were particularly funny. ph I love to get comments and always reply, so why not

52 photos – week 43

Another very late one, but this is one of my favourite pictures taken this past week. They now have matching rain coats, and we were enjoying a walk down to the duck pond on this particular day, like we often do.   I love to get comments and always reply, so why not let me know what you think about

52 photos – week 42

Whoops, nearly forgot to upload my favourite pictures from this week again. I think it’s about the only thing I have time for on the blog at the moment, and I’m not even managing that very well! These were taken as we took a late afternoon walk down to the duck pond on Saturday, before the clocks went back so

52 photos – week 41

The rain seems to have eased off in the later half of this week, so we went to the park on Wednesday morning and had a lot of fun, as usual. Both boys are quite keen on wearing their matching ‘animal’ hats that were knitted by their Great Aunt – Joel is a cat and Andrew is a bear. I

52 photos – week 40

Not the best quality photo in the dim morning light, but Andrew insisted that I take a photo of them whilst they were sitting still together on the arm chair for about 10 seconds! Again, each of their faces is classic for each of them. I love to get comments and always reply, so why not let me know what

How I wear a toddler and a preschooler (yes you read that right, though not often at the same time)

As it’s International Babywearing Week, I thought I’d write some more about our experience of baby wearing – or these days I should say toddlerwearing and preschoolerwearing. I’ve written blog posts before on our babywearing experience – you can read them here and here if you’re interested. I’ll cover some of what I wrote there here too. Like many parents

week 39

52 photos – weeks 38 & 39

I completely forgot to post a photo of each of the boys last week, so here are 2 for the past 2 weeks. The first was taken at one of our new favourite parks – the one outside Rowheath Pavilion in Bournville, and the second was taken in our back garden. Both photos are fairly rare in that they show
