With apologies to those on Facebook who saw a very similar post yesterday...
Soft play yesterday morning with Rod and Thomas, and with Hania (our childminder) and her daughter Nardjess. Matthew happily played with them for a while - letting me step back to give him some time to get used to me not bring right there, and me a chance to have a cuppa.
Then a quick lunch, and a short 20 minute nap in the bike on the way to Sawston to see the Health visitor for his one year review. All is well, and he's apparently very in proportion with height, head circumference and weight all on or just above the 25th centile. He doesn't seem little to us mind! Now weighs just over 9kg (or 19lbs 14oz in old money). His red book only notes that he's still breastfeeding on demand and that he's developing well with no concerns.
We had pancakes for tea. Going a bit non-traditional with haggis in one of them. Plus ham/cheese, jam, Nutella/banana and the traditional lemon/sugar. Matthew had a good go at trying them and seemed moderately impressed.
We've had a nice little wander round the garden and then end of our cul de sac this morning in his new shoes - which he keeps trying to eat! Looking forward to the baby group at the church this afternoon. Rod pointed out most of the toys are a but young for them now, but I guess we keep going for the company and the biscuits :) we'll move up to the under fives group in the mornings next term.
I got the platters off.( A few more picturesCollapse )
Update:( What the table looked likeCollapse )
A year from now...
|Crimea will be part of Russia, the remainder of the Ukraine will be working on EU membership|
|Crimea will be part of the Ukraine, with Russia still using the Crimea as a naval base|
|Crimea will be part of the Ukraine, and Russia will have pulled itself from the area|
|Russia will have annexed the whole of Ukraine|
|We will all have died in a nuclear holocaust|
As well as the spare disks mentioned in the previous postings I have a number of broken disks. I’ve been meaning to disassemble one for a while and today I found the time to do so.( PicturesCollapse )
Matthew is now over 11 months old, learning to walk on his own, has his first pair of outdoor shoes, and is generally feeling quite grown up - well, for a baby anyway!
I'm going to be going back to work the day after his birthday, so he'll be starting at a child minder to settle in next week, and she's asked me for some information about his routine and likes to help her get to know him, so I figure I may as well post it here. It'll probably be useful when we have our one year review with the health visitor next week too.
I shall close with the obligatory cute photo :)
Does anyone have any use for the following things?
All are fairly well used. (I have some PATA disks around too but I assume nobody still wants those.)
Terms: you collect.
Update: all now allocated...
