Ruben had his first visit to the beach, his fingernails cut (not at the same time) and adored his first time in the baby carrier that ‘Grandad Ireland’ bought for him and he was even babysat for one evening by ‘Grandma Birmingham’ whilst Tom + I went out for dinner with “Grandad + Grandma Ireland’ to La Calabria.
The week started with another wonderful trip to Llanerchaeron woodlands, but this time with ‘Grandad + Grandma Ireland’. On the Sunday, we showed them the way to Penbryn beach – for Ruben’s first experience of sea + sand. The pushchair wasn’t so good on the sand, so we abandoned it and decided to carry Ruben across the beach ! ‘Grandad Ireland’ skimmed stones while Tom enjoyed cuddles with Ruben.
Uncle Edward + Aunty Hazel came to visit and meet Ruben for the first time. We walked to theirs and had lunch (avocado and lemon zest on fried bread) with them. Sadly they had to leave early because their friend wasn’t able to look after their cat ! I thought that Ruben was still too small to use the sling but we tried it out in our living room + he fits quite snugly. I think Uncle Edward + Aunty Hazel enjoyed holding him in it too ! So this week has been full of baby carrying.
