In case you’ve not kept a note Elliot, since my last blog the following has happened:
1 – In November I went back to work, in a new role which is really exciting and will hopefully be made permanent sometime soon (this means my days of travelling the globe are done but now you’re around I’m happy with that!)
2 – as a consequence of 1, you’ve been in nursery 2 days a week since October and with your Grandparents for 2 additional days. This is working really well. After a couple of months in the baby room you moved up to Toddler 1 and are loving the fun and games that go on there. Nursery has taught you how to feed yourself – which you are now excellent at, and you’re so nearly there on the walking! I can’t wait for those first steps! You are also developing a good set of gardening skills (see picture!)
3 – you turned one in December, my dear lovely boy. You’re growing up so fast.
4 – we took a holiday to France last month (April) and you loved all the food- especially sneaked bits of Mummy’s chocolate crepes and ice creams! The first of many family holidays, it was fabulous to spend an entire week with you!
5 – you’re going to be a cousin really soon- little one due this month. Hope they have as much fun and enjoyment as we’ve done. It has been lovely to pass on your baby things for them to use. You’ll have to teach your little cousin how to do lots of things, I really hope you’ll be the best of friends despite the distance.
Lots of love
