Tigerboy is two today.
I can’t quite believe it. The time has flown – it seems moments since I was sitting painfully right here in this chair, crying, thinking I still had two weeks of pregnancy left. (Hint, I didn’t).
In some ways he’s very much still a baby. The no speech makes him seem much younger than he is. When he’s happy he dances on the spot and laughs, wanting applause. He’s still wearing sleepsuits at night (stops little hands going places they shouldn’t 😉 ) and he’s so very cuddly and huggly.
But there are fragments of the boy he will be showing through. He loves his big brother.
And bubble wrap. He *really* loves bubble wrap. So Small got him some pull back cars, and packaged them in bubble wrap, making the wrapping into part of the present
Other than that, it’s been a pretty low key day. Small has been out at a home ed friends – I dropped him off this morning, taking 90 minutes to drive 15 miles :'( (It only took 18 minutes to get back, without any speeding!) so I think we’re going to do cake and things tomorrow. Wouldn’t want him to miss out, and let’s face it, Tigerboy doesn’t know.
And I printed out a batch of stuff from Twinkl – I’m reviewing at the moment. I did him an alphabet train, and cut out the cars so he could play with them. Sneaky way of practising his sounds as well, but you could have knocked me down with a feather when he just about managed to say ‘ball’. Yay!
So, all in all, it’s been a lovely day. And because I’d like to share the joy, I’ve dug out a bundle of baby stuff I’ve been given recently at various events, and I’m doing a giveaway.
Here’s what’s up for grabs.
So that’s an organic cocoon towel from Little Green Sheep. A Skibz bandana bib – it’s camo. A Le bibble bottle bib and a Quack Quack Moo bib. That’s nearly £50 worth of baby goodness if you went out and bought it, and you could win it just by leaving a comment!
Yes indeed, easy comment entry. I just want to know what’s the baby product you couldn’t manage without? (If you don’t have a baby, give me your best guess!)
Additional optional entries (leave a separate comment for each entry or it won’t be counted.)
