Another milestone reached!

Well Elliot, this week you have reached another milestone on your way to being a big boy – you’ve finally started getting out of bed and coming to find us in the mornings!

We took the side off your cot way back on Easter Monday, and since then you’ve been patiently (or not so patiently) waiting for one of us to come in in the morning before you get out. Not any more, you’re so pleased with yourself, it’s lovely, and I’m for the moment enjoying hearing your footsteps along the hallway and the “mummy?” as you open the door to our room.

We now spend time most mornings playing snap with some Dinosaur playing cards we bought in Lyme Regis some time ago, you love sorting them out and shouting “SNAP!” when you spot matching numbers.

I know I may rue the day you learnt to get out of bed, when we start getting woken earlier and earlier, but at the moment I’m loving it 🙂

Lots of love,
Mummy xxx


Goodbye baby, hello toddler!

We’ve reached another milestone in this house this week. Our little man now sleeps in a bed (well, his cot bed with one of the sides removed) and I feel like he’s really growing up, noticeably getting clearer in his speech and actions each day. It’s amazing!

Any nervousness I had about taking the side off his cot was completely unfounded as he’s managed brilliantly so far, and seems to love his bed. He still hasn’t worked out that he can get out of it himself in the morning, so still shouts for one of us to go in, but he hasn’t fallen out yet(touches wood) and an added unexpected bonus was that it made it far easier to sort him out after a poorly nighttime episode on Monday night, which would have been much harder if he was still in the cot.


Catching up on some light reading

So there we are, next stop potty training (whenever the sun comes out, and yes I’m sticking to that as an excuse as to why I haven’t started it already, did you even read my post on potty training? I’m terrified!)
