It’s creative Saturday

This morning my husband and I took Timothy to a sensory class which was happening free but you had to register your attendance.

It was a fantastic class which was full of performance, song, music, sensory play and a whole lot of enthusiasm and passion from the teachers who ran the class.  

Timothy was a little young still for the class however with that being said it did include elements which he was able to engage with properly.  
The room where the class took place had been wonderfully decorated.

We also adventured into another part of the room which was completely white and a harp was played as we transitioned into this space which was really beautiful that they would incorporate such an instrument into the magical performance.  

This class had clearly been well planned and amazingly delivered, it was actually very surprising just how incredible the whole experience was.  

It is so wonderful that we have these incredible opportunity to immerse Timothy in.  It really is fantastic as a parent that such companies and organisations exist, giving up their time to provide these experiences.  

A Very Happy Saturday Friends!

Hurry up lady

This morning Timothy and I enjoyed our Baby Sensory Class.  It was weather day today and we had so much fun.  Timothy especially enjoyed being under the wind sheet.  

Timothy had great fun exploring which makes him particularly tired.  

So after the class was over and Timothy was once again snug in the pram we headed back home.  Timothy fell asleep on route and I know that his morning naps will usually last anywhere from 30 till an hour so I pick up the pace on a gradient path which is ever increasing.  

Now I’m moving at a speed negotiating our way around people walking.  Now when you have a sleeping baby and you really need this nap time, time when people are walking slowly and hogging the pavement it isn’t helpful.  

I often feel like voicing my opinions ‘lady move out the way’ or ‘come on pick up the pace’. See every minute saved is a minute more I have at home to do the jobs I need to do or eat my lunch sat down.  

I managed to get around 35 minutes at home after 15 minute’s or there abouts sleeping on route as I try to encourage myself to walk quickly up the hill. 

So 35 minutes later we are back to fun and games.  

Followed by feeding time at the zoo.  Tinkerbell is a smart cookies and sits under the high chair I decided to put Tinkerbells bed so she could sit comfortably.  This feeding frenzy turned into a paper fest as Timothy grabbed a tissue out of my pocket as I walked past.  

After a very long day Tinkerbell is exhausted.  

I also feel like curling up however I’m on the evening, night and early morning shift.  

Oh and if my pager was a cry and moving baby on the monitor than I’m wanted.  On duty again.  

Happy Wednesday Friends!  

My Little Pin Cushion

Today Timothy had his next set of injections well to be exact he had four!  

My husband came with me to the Doctors surgery as I just don’t do injections at all.  Timothy was already not feeling well and as we waited for our appointment he slept in his Daddy’s arms.  

The injection’s consisted of two in one leg and one in the other followed by one in the arm.  Our poor little pin cushion.  I couldn’t look, my husband had to hold Timothy it was horrible.  

So after this horrendous ordeal we went out to a newly open Chinese restaurant for a very late lunch.  Timothy had mixed emotions over lunch.  

Playing on the table seemed fun before the food arrived.  

Try some of the chicken from my noodle soup seemed positive.  

The food was absolutely delicious.  

We ordered a bottle of water and had this massive bottle arrive at the table.  

I wasn’t impressed how half way through my meal I realised that only the Oriental customers were given chop sticks so I asked for chop sticks and showed them that actually I have impressive chop stick skills.  I think that’s a little presumptuous on behalf of the restaurant because if that would of been a ‘English’ restaurant I’m sure they would of been in trouble for such cutlery stereotypes.  

After lunch my husband went to collect the car and I walked back home to give Timothy the opportunity to sleep which as we nearly arrived home he drifted off. 

Now this evening my little pin cushion is down for the night but I’ll most defiantly be seeing him at various intervals…Please sleep well for Mummy little pin cushion. 

Happy Thursday Friends!  

A lot of fur

While my husband was busy working today my Dad, Timothy, Tinkerbell and I visited Liverpool.  I have visited Liverpool most defiantly once before but it was a whole new experience.  

As we approached Liverpool in the car I was a little surprised how run down the approach was.  It was actually very sad that so much neglect had been shown to the streets, shops and houses.  
Unfortunately but I’m aware that most city’s have such neglected areas but to be surrounded by such a great expanse of the city appriach that seemed as if a little love and tender care was what it was desperately in need of. 

Once we had parked up in the multi-storey  we walked into the city centre along the neglected roads and past the train station and many other now city worthy buildings.  

My Dad took us all to a lovely shopping complex called Liverpool One which really was lovely and had clearly been designed by a rather talented team of town planners and architects a contrast to the city centre boundary.  

We went into the Thorntons café which was an incredibly delicious lunch.  Tinkerbell hid under the pram and Timothy sat coughing and sniffling away as we tucked into pannis, cakes and hot chocolate!  

After lunch which involved the worlds or at least Liverpool’s largest hot chocolate we enjoyed a short walk around and yes into the Cath Kidston shop.  

On our walk back to the car this rather peculiar man started talking to me thank goodness my Dad responded as I stood clinging onto the pram trying to smile as friendly as I could but probably failing.  

Timothy by the end of the visit wasn’t very happy and the car journey home involved a couple of stops because of a very distressed little chap.  

Liverpool was full of people wearing fur hopefully faux unfortunately my fur trim Gap coat was at home instead I wore my Joules rain coat with floral design most defiantly gave the impression I was a visitor.  

It’s most defiantly somewhere I like to visit again if its cold weather when I do I’m bringing out my fur trim coat.  

Happy Tuesday Friends!  

Thirty minutes

Timothy has a little cold a runny nose to be exact, I also have developed a cold.  A headache and a terrible sore throat.  I told my husband that I thought I might have the flu he was extremely quick to inform me that I didn’t.  So with his non medical diagnosis I meet my Mum and Dad after Timothy’s first class of the week.  

We went to a lovely little cafe which serves our favourite hot chocolate in town well technically the best in the city.  I don’t know what it is about this particular hot chocolate but if I had to describe it in one word it would be amazing!  

After a hot chocolate or two and cake but clearly not for Timothy and after Timothy had been fed, water and fed again he fell asleep.  

I lay Timothy on the table after my mum had helped me get on his snowsuit.  It was incredible how exhausted Timothy must of been.  
When at home after lunch I sat with Timothy in his play pen well actually I lay in the play pen while Timothy continually tried to crawl all over me.  I was frightened this his still unsteady head would bash my face as I tried to adapt the fetal position.  

Thankfully later on in the afternoon either Timothy was due a nap or simply didn’t want to listen to any more of the nursery rhymes I was singing to him.  Timothy decided to take a nap. We both had a thirty minute nap together in the safety of the play pen perimeter’s.  I was really ready for a nap.  I probably can count on one hand the amount of time’s I have napped when Timothy does.  A whole year and only a few naps shared, that’s impressive I do think.  A nap for Timothy even in the early days ment jogbs around the house.  Today however I was in real need of joining Timothy for his nap.

My lovely husband even had to make dinner which I was really greatful about.  

Cold, cold go away I’ve got too many jobs around the house that I don’t have time to be unwell.  

I think an early night is just what’s needed.  

Happy Monday Friends!  

 

  

Barron and Timothy

Parenting isn’t an easy task but it’s also full if joyous moment’s.  I’m a new parent Timothy has been party of the Karma family for 12 months so I’m still continually adjusting to what being a mummy really means.  For me among many things it’s wearing Joules tops and taking my baby Timothy to his classes where we bond and interact it’s also broken sleep, nappies and baby wearing the list goes on.  

Barron Trump is President and First Lady Trump’s 10 year old boy.  I’m very sure that this presidential couple have experienced everything I’ve listed above, nappies, broken sleep and so on.  

Barron and Timothy are very similar they are both very much loved children.  

Timothy is just wonderful it goes without saying how much I love him.  

People have over my life time said unkind word’s to me, texted thoughtless messages and written hurtful remarks which is most defiantly just mean.  It doesn’t make it easy to understand why and can often take time to get over but when it comes to Timothy I don’t want anyone to say, write or message anything that could be deemed hurtful.  

Once someone at Church called Timothy an unkind word it hurt me.  I made me feel unhappy, thankfully Timothy didn’t realise.  

As a parent I don’t want my children to experience such hurt after all what right has an adult to verbally bully a child.  

I feel very sad for Barron Trump unlike Timothy who’s only 12 months Barron most likely will be aware of the unkind things adults are saying about him on a very public platform.  I can’t imagine how the presidential couple must feel I’d be heartbroken and very angry.  

Maybe just maybe thoses who wish to verbally abuse Barron need to stop and think how they would feel of it was their child or a loved ones being bullied.  

Whatever peoples thoughts and opinions are of adults, children really don’t deserve to be treated this way.  

Happy Sunday Friends!

Baby Boy’s Birthday

Today our lovely baby turned one!  A whole 12 months spent with this pure bundle of joy so we had much to celebrate.  

One my Facebook news feed this morning my blog I wrote a couple of January 3rds ago popped up.  The blog was about my late Grandad’s funeral which was conducted on 3rd of January today the anniversary of his life.  The funny this is that it has taken me and my family a whole year to realise this fact.  

God took away a wonderful and kind man and gave the world another one in its place.  

To celebrate a whole 12 months with Timothy in our lives my Mum and Dad joined my husband, Timothy and I for a delicious Thai meal.  The amazing thing was Timothy slept through the entire lunch, it was wonderful! 

When Timothy was born he stopped breathing and spent a short period of time in the neonatal unit.  Every one of Timothy’s days has been a blessing to the whole family, like all babies but knowing that without medical intervention we might not have our baby with us to celebrate this special day in his life.  

Happy first birthday Timothy we thank God for you and we are so happy that we get to share each and every day together.

Happy Tuesday Friends!  

Family Fun

Today we had a little birthday gathering for my brother in law.  My brother in law and sister so wonderful how much they love Timothy and Timothy seems to adore time spent with this fantastic pair. 

My family love a good buffet and today we enjoyed a real feast.  

After a rather large plate of delicious food followed by chocolate birthday cake we went for a picturesque walk with Max the Doberman and Tinkerbell sat under the pram.  

Later in the afternoon I had given Timothy something to eat in his high chair whilst all the family gathered in the living room listening to a Dutch composer.  My sister suggested that I could fit Tinkerbell under Timothy’s high chair, so I decided to try and the answer is yes she will fit.  

Timothy clearly oblivious to the little furry family member sat under his seat.  

We ended the celebration’s with a game called Dobble which was such fun.  

Most defiantly a time of family fun, a perfect way to spend the last Friday in 2016.  

Happy Friday Friends!

Baby Pumpkin

Today Timothy went to a Baby Pumpkin Sensory Autumn Party!  Mr Happy wore his Ladybird outfit for the second time.  Before the Baby Pumpkin party began Timothy explored the exciting sensory play area.

dscn18991The black bed behind Timothy was actually a blow up bed which he had fun crawling over.

The party was structured into lead sensory, free play and lead sensory activity.

Timothy had fun in the ball pool but didn’t seem pleased when he had to share it with a pumpkin.

To end the Pumpkin Party we enjoy fireworks.

Timothy and I had such an enjoyable afternoon that we continued the Baby Pumpkin Party at home.

Happy All Things Autumn Friends!

A Monkey with an Uncle

This evening Timothy had two of his most favourite people over for a wonderful inpromptu visit.

dscn16531

I realise that most people are busy but these two individuals are actually very busy people and so it really was touching that they took time out to spend with us.

Timothy was trilled to share his evening and a late night with these lovely two and his new monkey, which was an extremely kind and thoughtful gift which Timothy already seems to be very much taken by.

A great person once said that a great life is simply a collection of great days, well this was most definitely a great day or technically evening shared with people who love Timothy as much as we do.

Happy Friday Friends!
