Does anyone else seem to find the week draaaags, but then suddenly it's Friday and you don't know where the time went? I've definitely had one of those weeks! We've been getting into the festive spirit a lot this week, although I think the novelty of the tree is starting to wear thin - Parker loves pulling off all the baubles and switches the lights on and off alllll day....
It seems like everyone and their uncle Vlogmas this year, so there's not been much chance for reading. Don't get me wrong I love it, but there's simply not enough time to watch everyone I love.
I'm still making my way through Me Before You when I can though - a Lush bath was the perfect excuse to relax with a book!
I'm a bloody awful skater, so it was just these two on the ice at the weekend. Our local rink does parent and toddler skates, so it was perfect for Indie. She loved it; so much so we've booked to go again in a couple of weeks!
I also watched these two run wild and free at the park this week - does anyone else love when you get it to yourself? Parker is soo confident now - he can climb and jump and slide all by himself. It was only a few months ago that he needed my help. They grow up waaaay too fast. How adorable is his puddle suit (essential winter park wear) too? It's from Sainsburys!
Lots and lots of new words from Parker. I wrote a long list in his 16 month update earlier in the week!
If you've followed my blog for a while you'll know I'm not a lover of messy play. We finally bought some decent (washable) paint, so I thought it was time I let the kids get messy. I was straight onto pintrest getting ideas for Christmas cards, and I think we ended up with some really good ones!
I honestly thought I snapped a picture of my Christmas jumper, but apparently not! We've all been getting into the Christmas spirit with our outfits this week though. I picked up these matching tees for the boys from Asda - the nose on Jack's flashes!
Indiana's dress was another little bargain find from Tesco's. It's covered in snowmen and actually really snuggly and warm. We wore them on our trip to see Father Christmas on Sunday.
We've been having a bit of a tough time with Indiana and favouritism recently. Well, I say we, but it's actually me who's feeling it. Indie's always been a daddy's girl. But these past few months she's been telling me she 'doesn't love mummy, I love daddy'. I know she doesn't mean it and I shouldn't take it to heart, but it's pretty upsetting!
This past week though we seemed to have turned a corner. She's told me (without prompting) that she loves me a number of times this week. She even picked me flowers and said they're for being the best mummy. I almost cried!
Have a lovely week :)
