This week’s word of the week has got to be:
Firstly, I took the plunge at the beginning of the week and went self-hosted – launching the blog with a new name and a different design. It’s something I’d been tempted to do for a while and so far I’ve been really pleased with the increased freedom of being self-hosted.
Secondly, hubby and I are having a night out without any little ones in tow tonight – the first one since Sophie’s arrival. We’re out for a meal with some friends and I’m looking forward it.
And finally, I’m going to my first blogging event tomorrow – the Tots100 BlogCamp. I’m really looking forward to meeting other bloggers who I’ve been getting to know online over the last few months and it’s also my first day out on my own since before Sophie was born. I’m even excited about the two hour train journey each way – the prospect of two hours to sit and read, or blog, or just watch the world go by sounds utterly blissful!
Here’s a summary of how this week has been:
Out and About:
We’ve had a trip to Herschel Park to feed the ducks and collect autumn leaves, time at the playground and an afternoon at the local sling meet (where I finally managed to get confident enough with a back carry to carry Sophie on my back whilst out and about).
Jessica and Sophie have been enjoying having indoor picnics with the toys and making cakes out of Duplo. We also tried to make a leaf collage but Jessica was much more interested in just smearing the glue all over the paper, sticking the leaves down and then immediately pulling them off again so it wasn’t very successful.
Not a lot of that this week as hubby has been away for most of it – my ‘me time’ has mostly been catching up on blogging after the girls are in bed.
My happiest moment:
Watching Sophie as she starts to get more confident with taking steps on her own – she’s now starting to stand up in the middle of the room and take steps towards the furniture. I love watching the way she seems to analyse how far away the furniture is before taking those little steps. Precious moments.
Next week I would like to:
Find time to make at least one of the cushions that I need to get finished before the beginning of December!
