Memories from June.
From 25 weeks at the beginning of the month …
My gorgeous boy, just before getting his hair cut. He loves his sunglasses.
My handsome boys, post haircut.
… 27 weeks …
Homemade ice-lollies (Smitten Kitchen recipe)
… Nearly 28 weeks, going to the RSC …
Exploring and adventuring at Compton Verney for Nonni’s birthday.
‘Helping’ mummy with some work.
Just one night’s collection from the garden, now made into jam.
… to 28+1 at the end of the month.
Only fainted twice this month! Maybe the third trimester will be kinder to me.
Saw and loved the Merchant of Venice at the RSC.
A wonderful day out at the Wimpole Estate with friends, which included lots of tractors and was therefore a huge hit with a certain 2-year old, and his friends. Wishing we could meet-up more regularly.
Freddie started swimming by himself (but with armbands)! He’s found his confidence in the water, which made us both very proud.
Catching-up with friends in Cambridge, in our garden for a BBQ, in our kitchen for homemade scones and out for dinner at a new find. And taking the little ones swimming with a new-ish friend I hope turns into a more permanent one.
Continue to be delighted by Freddie’s language development. At the beginning of the month I tweeted about one of his first 5 word sentences: ‘I’ve eaten all of my pikelet.’ (Recipe in Delia Smith’s Complete Cookery Course, if you’re interested.) By the end of the month, 5 words was commonplace and he now says things like ‘I want to make a little tunnel with the blanket. I go in it, I hiding.’
Another hilarious toddler phrase: ‘I not like traffic jam. I like peanut butter.’
Reading and thoroughly enjoying this book about pregnancy.
