Well hello there! So what’s the deal? How are you able to poo for the whole of England and still have NOT ONE tooth come through! I don’t get it, most babies I know have about 6 already. And the bloody baby down the road “has ALL of his teeth and eats absolutely everything! He’s even on cows milk!”. Wow, hurrah for him. Naf off.
To be fair, your dentist aunt did point out it can take up to 18 months (oh my god) for teeth to come through so I guess we still have a while before worry should set in. Your nanny actually told me that my teeth didn’t come through till I was 13 months old. So I guess, for now, I shall enjoy your gummy smiles a bit longer. It seems lack of teeth doesn’t stop you from biting my cardigan and shoulder. Ouch baby!!
This month I get the feeling you might have descended from evil kenieval. The way you quite willingly throw yourself off furniture and anything with a bit of height has my heart permanently in my mouth. And I know you know you’re doing it! You laugh cheekily and toss yourself back, looking a lot like you’re about to body surf. If you could not do that so much then that would be great!
And sleeping? I think we might be going backwards this month. One night was just pure awful and everything was going wrong. It started when I thought it would be a good idea to update my iPhone. 5 HOURS later at 1am it finished but not without wiping out 3 months worth of your pictures from my phone. The rest of that night went like this
Lots of sulking over lost pics
Trying to google way to get pics back
Discovering big wee leak resulting from a dodgy nappy fastening by daddy
Changing baby fully
Settling baby back down after feed
Collapsing into bed thinking sleep at last
Waking an hour later by, fully awake, bouncing baby ready to start the day!
Suffice to say I spent most of that day in a zombie like state. It reminded me very much of the book Peace at last. I’ve now bought it for you.
Right about now I need to start thinking about your first birthday party. Now that’s going to be interesting, considering your mum and dads families don’t talk to each other. Do we have one party, invite everyone and stress the hell out of myself? Or have two separate parties and two cakes? Two cakes. I think that decides it doesn’t it? I should start organising but it’s not till mid December. We have aaaaages yet!
Until next time baby! Mwah!!

This is my first ever Saturday Caption.
Place a comment below about that, err, poor man.
There is a new Meme..Music as Therapy! Created by the one and only Mammywoo. I was tagged by both the lovely Mammywoo and TheBoyAndMe.
You can read all about how is started right here and read TheBoyAndMe’s entry here.
The rules are simple.
What musical lyrics have touched you?
If you would like to have a go, just pick;
3 beautiful songs.
3 different bands.
3 sets of lyrics that touch you in anyway you want to show.
I consider myself to have quite an eclectic taste in music. The OH translates this to be “crap”. But what does he know. The dance and trance lover. Puh!!
Anyway… Here goes my entry
I will be your father figure,
put your tiny hand in mine
I will be your preacher teacher,
Anything you have in mind
I will be your father figure,
I have had enough of crime
I will be the one to love you
Till the end of time
Can’t take my eyes off of you
You feel like heaven to touch
I want to hold you do much
At long last love has arrived
And I thank god I’m alive
You’re just to good to be true
Can’t take my eyes off you
And lastly, I’ve got the moves like Jagger (for now).
Just shoot for the stars
If it feels right
Then aim for my heart
If you feel like
And take me away, make it okay
I swear I’ll behave
I now tag….

There I was doing my daily workout of blog reading and generally avoiding the house dust, when I came across the words “Fairy Hobmother” on a post by Mum 2 Baby Insomniac. (Check out her blog, its part of my daily “avoid the house dust” blog reads!)
Like a little kid, (I know, it doesn’t take much!), I was suddenly excited. You see, the Fairy Hobmother sprinkles her magic dust far and wide across the blogger community. If you’re lucky, she’ll drop by your inbox and leave a little present too!
All I did was leave a comment on a fellow bloggers Fairy Hobmothers post and, like magic, a present dropped into my inbox… Amazon vouchers!! If you follow me on Twitter you’ll know I Heart Amazon! so I cannot wait to spend them. I might actually do it straight after this!!
In my excitement I babbled to the OH that the Fairy Hobmother had come to visit and, in his tired confusion, thought the Tooth Fairy had finally bestowed our little boys first tooth! (It’s been a long week!)
Anyway, I digress. Where was I?
By day, the Fairy Hobmother works at Appliances Online. They sell all types of electrical appliances for the home, including cookers. They have an excellent range and and easy options to find one. Fancy a new hob or whole cooker? Or maybe you’re after a more energy saving washing machine? Check it out.
And fancy your very own visit from the Fairy Hobmother?
Just leave a comment below. The Fairies (there is more than 1!) read them and if you’re lucky then some pixie dust in the form of a gift might be coming your way. Go on, make a wish! Good luck!!
Kate’s Top 5 on Listography this week are search terms. I love looking at these on my blog (ok, I know that’s sad) but it’s amusing, and sometimes surprising, to see what people sit and Google. So here are mine…
1. Not My Year Off
2. What Not to Do when Weaning
It seems mums out there are paranoid. As was I really! I wrote the post on my weaning adventures soon after I started feeding baby.. And god was it a messy time. Actually, it’s just got messier as babys got older!
3. Pink Fluffy Slippers
People must love the thought of them.. Or are a bit weird? I get a LOT of hits for them!! I posted this as an entry into the Gallery. If people are struggling to find them, I got them from George for a fiver. Best slippers ever!
Again, another popular one for seemingly overprotective mums! When Baby Boy first started standing, and tumbling all over the place, I felt my blood pressure rising and falling like a yoyo and i kept thinking of protective baby inventions that would ensure the baby just bounced around, all encased, instead of the thrice daily tears!
Yep! Witches! Where I live is famous for the Pendle Witches and my plan was to visit this summer I still haven’t been! The search results do amuse me though. My favourite witch related search has been
“Why do witches put Butternut squash on their window sills in September?”
I have no idea! (I even tried to find the answer myself!)
