a different start to the day

Evie has never liked being left in her cot while I have got on with things such as having a shower or taking the laundry out (I always tell her that I am not going out and having fun without her but she just wont believe me!).

Normally I would put a toy in with her and that would keep her occupied, but not anymore...

On Friday morning I gave her her bath got her dressed put her in her cot with a teddy and she was kneeling up holding the bars and was crying so much that I thought she was going to be sick.

So I ended up taking her into the bathroom with me and had my shower with her sitting on the bathroom floor!

And when I got out of the shower I had realised that I had forgotten to get a towel out :o(

I told James about this and his suggestion was to have a shower and take her in the shower with me...

...the thing is I still havent ruled that out as a possibility.

Anyway this morning I got James to make sure that I was awake when he left for work and I jumped into the shower and got that done with Evie still being asleep.

She will have to stay in the cot though while I take the laundry out and back in again as their really is no getting around that.

Have a good New Years Eve tonight ;o)

she cannot be a marmite hater

Ever since just after Christmas Evie has been sleeping under a cot duvet.

The cot duvet cannot be tumble dried so I decided to buy her a spare one for when the other one is in the wash.

So I went to Argos yesterday and the one that I wanted was out of stock (typically that one was on offer too) and I saw that this one was on offer and that if you buy the cot bumper you save £10.00 and as it only costs £9.99 you get it for free and save a massive one penny on the duvet in the bargain ;o).

Yesterday we decided to try Evie on Marmite spread thinly on a bread soldier - she kept on pulling the bits with marmite out of her mouth!

As no child of mine is going to be a *shudders* a marmite hater I am going to have to keep trying her on it until she blooming well likes it...

mummy brain

Since the babies have started turning one, I have been e-mailing the Mummies saying "happy birthday" as well as sending a birthday card.

This morning I e-mailed three of the Mums as there were two birthdays today and one tomorrow.

Hee hee I got an e-mail back this morning from one of the Mummies saying "thank you albeit your a day early"

So I replied back to all three saying that I have a "major case of Mummy brain" ;o)

birthday & illness

Last Sunday was Evies first birthday ;o)

We had a great lunch at Frankie & Bennys, James brother bought down our two nieces from Wiltshire (the nephew had a the Norovirus) but the girls were supposed to be ok...

...on Tuesday poor James woke up with a bad stomach ache and had the squits!  Apparently the youngest Niece had it and nobody thought to tell us!

And then on Friday I woke up with a cold!

getting out the baby walker

Ages ago we bought Evie a baby walker but when we tried to get her to use it she would just pull her legs up!

As she has now started to try and pull herself up we thought that we would get the walker out... the moment she is more interested in seeing how the bricks taste ;o)

Little Miss Reading

I have started reading the Little Miss books that I bought for her ;o)

She leans on my chest and looks at the pictures while listening ;o)

I was reading her Little Miss Helpful and I was laughing so much that I couldnt get the words out ;o)

getting stuck

Ever since Evie crawled through the tunnel she has been getting braver ;o)

This morning I put her on the floor so that I could use the pc and I heard Evie crying... I had a look but couldnt see her so I walked around to where I left her and could see a stripey bottom between the arm chair and the sofa where she had got stuck between them!

up and through

Me & Evie went to Gymbabes yesterday...

,,,and as usual I tried to get her to crawl up an inclined piece of equipment (I call it a hill ;o)

So I grabbed hold of a mini bean bag to encourage her a bit and I was well surprised that she started crawling up ;o)

It took her a while but she did eventually get to the top ;o)

I then thought that as we are on a roll I will try putting her in the tunnel with me the other end furiously shaking a rattle and she crawled through that too ;o)

There was a little boy who wanted to go through too and kept on getting behind Evie trying to hurry her along...

...hee hee she is like me and does things at her own pace ;o)

we certainly dont stock that

I while ago I picked up the Boots Christmas gift guide.

I saw in there this body wash, but it was continually out of stock and also if you ordered online (and didnt spend over £20.00) you would get charged £1.49 (its the principal that I dont agree with) to have it sent to your nearest store!

So I complained to Boots I even told them that Superdrug (their nearest competitors) dont charge!

So I kept on going into the store to see if it was ins tock and finally a week ago it was ;o)

The woman taking down my order was very snotty and when she looked on the computer she said very snottily "we certainly dont stock that" like I was ordering something really weird!

I was told that the estimated delivery date would be Wednesday and ironically I got a text message to say that it had been delivered to the store on Tuesday (when I was halfway home).

I couldnt pick it up on Wednesday or Thursday (because of the snow/ice) and picked it up on Friday ;o)

I havent opened it yet to see what it smells like and hope it makes me feel hungry for Christmas cookies ;o)

stir crazy

Evie has this morning gone stir crazy after being indoors because of the snow!

Thank goodness the snow has melted as I will have to take her out today whatever the weather ;o)

Wednesday 5 December 2012

snow & little reindeers

I woke up this morning and saw that it looked white outside

I have decided to stay in today as I dont need to go out, I just hope that I can keep Evie from being bored ;o)

Yesterday I dressed Evie in a little reindeer outfit ;o)

Christmas peas

Evie wearing a "have a happ-pea Christmas" long sleeved t-shirt ;)


The other day Evie started kneeling...

...we now regularly see her kneeling up to get at things o)

christmas outfits galore

Since the Christmas ranges have come into the stores I have been on the lookout for cute cheapish outfits for Evie ;o)

I am hoping to dress Evie in something Christmassy every day in December and will dress her in her party dress on her birthday ;o)
