Bank Holiday Weekend

Tapete Jumper    /    Uniqlo Jeans    /    Toms Shoes 

It's a bank holiday here, so we're out and about enjoying the mild (yet typically fickle) Irish weather. Will it be warm, a little chilly, rain or shine? Well, all of the above, daily, actually. So every day I carry suncream and raincoats to be on the safe side.

Noah is well on his feet now, and has been for a few weeks. He's loving it. He's also getting a right little 'tude on him. It's actually kind of funny when he's being downright petulant. But I know that wont last so it's time for the excuse "he's just a baby, he doesn't know what he's doing" to stop, and some discipline to begin. Says the Mama who almost had her nose broken this morning when he got cross and whacked me with a hard plastic toy. Jack will be glad of this as all I hear at the moment is "Mummmmy, Noah is bothering me!" To be fair, Noah seems to really enjoy bothering Jack. He's a bit of a wind up merchant.

The boys looked so comfortable in their Toms today that they inspired me to dig mine out too. Jack and Noah really make them look good. Plus, Ickle baby Toms are the cutest! Isn't Jack getting so tall? Look at him - he's over half the height of me! 

We haven't achieved much in our two weeks off, so far. It's been blissfully slow and relaxing. However, Jack has learned to write his name - just in time to start school. We have 3 picnics to attend this coming week, we're looking forward to that, so long may this mild weather continue.
