Siblings in June

I always new the wee man had a genuine caring nature. So I should not be surprised about his genuine love and care for his sister.

 There is great comfort in being able to leave the room and knowing I can trust him to look out for her. I love the moments best when you catch him unawares entertaining her. He will sing for her, read her a story and get her toys. She loves it too as she has huge smiles. She is hard work my diva too but he takes it all in his stride. He has gotten so much better at entertaining himself now which really helps too when she is being extra demanding of my time. It's been great remembering with him all that he used to do as she plays with his old toys. 

There have even been secret kisses and he does not generally do kisses these days. I am really enjoying watching this relationship grow.

The gardens at Chatsworth

Last weekend we enjoyed a beautiful sunny day at Chatsworth. We decided to have a picnic with friends in the house gardens. The gardens are expansive so even with the crowds there was plenty of space for everyone. It's also not the cheapest of outings but we got our money's worth as we explored for the whole afternoon.  Particular favourite spots included the rocks garden which consists of huge boulders that you can climb on. The maze took us ages to figure out and the cascade was pretty impressive. Being peaceful to just relax and with loads of space to run about and explore it offered something for everyone. We enjoyed a well deserved ice cream after a busy day.

My Diva

A new pet peeve is when people ask me if I have a good baby. I ideally want to say to be honest she is not just bad she seems to be evil. I know when they think good they think about a baby that sleeps well and hardly cries. My baby thinks sleep is for the weak and does not cry but screams when she is ready! Fortunately I certainly don't think any baby is bad and my baby certainly is not possessed by evil spirits. You see she has the most beautiful smiles. She is really clever rolling about already. She loves her music and toys. 

So I have settled on calling her my diva, she's just high maintenance. I have changed my whole vocabulary when it comes to parenting her and it's all about survival. With two children the last thing I need to worry about is spoiling her. So yes often she shares the bed with me, we have discovered the joys of baby wearing and I am not worrying about when she will sleep through the night.
