Joshua and Mummy Day

June 27th, 2016

So, Joshua and I have spent the day together today, and Oscar and Daddy have too. We’ve had a lovely time together. Joshua has been very affectionate with kisses and cuddles and we’ve had a few hilarious moments.. He’s missed Oscar and Daddy though. Here are some of those moments…

On the train there was a man blowing his nose and laughing to himself and Joshua looks at him and says, ‘what’s that?!’ a good few times. Mummy replies, ‘oh he’s just blowing his nose, etc..’ He loves that question at the moment.

At another point on the train he takes a big sniff and declares ‘poo! I can smell poo.’ I was quite impressed. It was the cow manure in the fields. Clever boy.

Now we’re at home and the boy next door but one makes unusual noises (he’s sen) and so Joshua mimics him back like they’re having their own conversation. Haha! 😳

Russell’s April 2016

April 29th, 2016

I haven’t written a blog/posted photos in quite a while so thought I’d do a little overview…

April already wow wee .. Just trying to organise my 30th birthday party and starting to become a bit panicked because we’re heading towards May! We’ve had plenty of scarlet fever, coughs, colds and chicken pox so far this year and our biggest decision/prayer point at the moment is whether to home school Oscar for a couple of years!? To be decided…

Oscar adventures recently *still loving climbing and gymnastic activities. *improving lots on his computer games and iPad (although that’s limited by mummy to an hour a day unless we’re on a long car journey/need it as our back up.) *getting changed by himself and often getting ready by the door before Mummy and Daddy! *chatting lots and asking lots of why questions-We both love seeing how he is learning and working things out.

Joshua adventures recently *becoming cheeky and funny. He’s understanding different social clues, e.g. That if he does something funny, we laugh and he repeats. *loves climbing, running and playing with balls still. *starting to become independent with his play i.e having his own stories and what seems like more purpose to his actions (although children have purpose from babies.) *putting 2/3 words together to make a sentence and asking ‘what’s that?!’ lots.

Disneyland 2015

November 17th, 2015

We all went to Disneyland Paris for my birthday. Nan-Nan and Aunty Sarah joined us, and Oscar especially loved playing lego with Nan-Nan!

We got on lots of rides, and everyone did a great job of queuing.

We had an extra special breakfast, with Mickey Mouse, Tigger, and friends dropping in to say “Hi”, and play with Oscar’s toys. Read the rest of this entry »

Fish food!

November 17th, 2015

This is Joshua’s favourite game at the moment: he goes in the cupboard to get the fish food to feed the fish, but if it’s not time to feed them yet, then instead he takes the food out and puts it back in to the box. Repeat.

He smells like fish 🐟🐠

Wales vs Whales

November 4th, 2015

We had a good chat with Oscar on our late night far drive home (I think he was avoiding sleep!) all about where Pops and GG live.

Matthew mentioned that it was strange that we’d left Wales and it was still misty (haha we don’t think Wales has the best weather) which confused Oscar a little. So, we explained to him that Pops and GG live in a place called Wales and not in a whale 🐋 like a big fish.

Oscar explained that we’d be very sad if Pops and GG were gone in a whale and that they actually just lived in a place called Wales! What a clever sausage 🌭

Oscar and Joshua: dressing up!

October 3rd, 2015

Our kids have style 😉 Oscar has always liked wearing ‘costumes’ or modifying his own. Joshua enjoys doing it as well now. Here are a few photographs of them in some unusual attire! P.s. I also like dressing up. Read the rest of this entry »
