Its been snowing A LOT here in Cardiff – which is very unusual… so schools have been closed all around and we’ve had to come up with home activities. A big part of today the boy was a Pirate. And i took a lot of photos:)

The big boy


We are all waiting… and waiting! only two weeks to go now till we’ll be a family of 4 but in the mean time the big boy has started nursery school – and wait for it; he actually loves it! No more teary mornings dropping him off to the private nursery.. now its just fun filled afternoons:) Oh! and then he’s had a haircut, so all in all, a good time to stop and take a few snaps of him before it all changes – again.

week 21


its week 21 and its getting pretty hard to keep finding new ways of photographing the boy! (but guess that’s the whole point – so that i push my self to find new ways to photograph!)

In week 21 the boy decided to act his age – ie. join the ‘terrible twos’! There has been many arguments this week and lots of wanting to shout and scream at him…but then i called my mum instead;) “just keep strong, keep showing him you are the boss” and by the end of the week it was much better… i may have won the battle, but im sure the war is not over yet.

So this week I tried to have a few activities inbetween where we could calm down and do something he really enjoys – like water play in the sink:)

We also started potty training (on the happy days!) and so far its ok…. i’ve only taken his nappy of when at home and not pushing him too much as he’s still not totally aware when things are happening but im easing him into it.

Sunday afternoon, though, I just needed to get him out of the house(!) so we met with a couple of friends in the park for a walk and cake – good finish to the week:)

week 20


So im almost up to date now on this little project:) I’ve also got a little new baby and a beautiful registry office wedding to share(!)

For this week it was all about getting back to a normal routine. The weather was lovely so one night we went for  a little walk before bedtime – LOVE THE LIGHT:) There was also a naked day. On his behalf – not mine! It was great as it meant he did really well on the potty (too much info but im a proud mummy!)

The weekend was kicked in with his very first sleepover. Connie (his very best friend from the day they were born – only 5 days apart) It went really well even though Tobias was a bit ill and spend the most of the time sleeping, but when he was awake they did really well:) There’ll hopefully be lots more to come!

 

 

Week 18 [personal]


Better try catch up a bit in this project:)

For week 18, we came back from Florida, was home for 2 nights and then off to Denmark for my mum’s 60th birthday! It was hard. Very hard. Not only was I working the day job Monday and Tuesday so the boy was in nursery but we were struggling with jet lag and the poor little man couldn’t work out WHERE in the world he was… But it was totally worth it:)

We had SUCH a lovely time! Tobias played with his cousin who is exactly 9months younger than him and they were racing around in their little cars and running around in my mum and dad’s amazing garden.

We got to meet the newest family member -my brothers little girl, Line, who is tiny and cute and had lots of cuddles from me and lots of head stroking from Tobias.

It was great to see the family again (as always) and the birthday party went really well:)

Tobias had the nursery bear ‘Barneby Bear’ for the weekend which was ‘great’ as we had to find space in the suitcase for him and his clothes too;)

Week 16 [52 weeks]


This week it’s been week1 of our epic 2 week Orlando holiday. I’ve never been before – used to live in the US so been lots of other places, but never Orlando. We’ve done 7 parks in as many days and it’s SO HOT here -my Scandinavian genes can’t cope:)
(but still very happy to be avoiding the rubbish current British weather!)

But the boy is LOVING it. He’s so much like his dad. Fast rides and lots of water play! It’s great that he’s tall for his age, as it’s taking him just over the minimum hight restrictions for the kiddie rides:)

He’s seen his favourite Disney characters, seen the killer whales, been riding roller coasters, sung with Barney (what an annoying dude!!) and been on water slides “all on my own mummy!”.

Not sure how much he’ll remember after but right here, right now, he’s having a great time!

Here’s some instagram photos of our past week.

an instagram catchup


as we are off on holiday on Saturday I’m trying to round things up and make sure everything is double backed up – including my personal pictures!

I love taking photos on my iphone4 – and now with Instagram, its even better! I’ve always got my phone on me so its very easy to snap those little moments that would have been lost if you had to wait and get out the big camera:)

When looking at these pictures i feel proud. He’s such a lovely little man. He’s good at lots of things, and he takes pride in what he does. He loves his friends and he loves playing with his toys. He’s got a fantastic imagination and he’s just strait up handsome! Dont get me wrong – he can make me wanna rip my hair out and just sit down and cry, but its all part of it all right? But most of the time I just wanna hold on to him till he says “mummy im stuck!”

Here’s a little round up of April with a few of the shots from the past 4 weeks… stay tuned for the holiday pictures! As Tobias says “we’re going to America on a BIG airplane to see Mickey Mouse – he lives in a castle! and we are gonna see whales, and penguins and cars in a pond (not sure about the last one..!)
