This week has been a big one ! We have a five week old Ruben + have managed to move house with the help of family. Unfortunately, our previous landlady gave us notice on the on the old property until January. But we found a beautiful, little dormer bungalow in the same county in West Wales and it is named ‘Field of Trees’. It has a garden for Ruben and a garage with a driveway for Tom’s cars.
I couldn’t have done any packing without our sling, so there has been even more baby carrying this week. Ruben quite likes to fall asleep when he’s tucked up inside it. ‘Grandad Birmingham’ helped me do a lot of the heavy lifting + he took me to The Aberystwyth Arts Centre to see a Jazz Band from Birmingham called ‘King Pleasure and The Biscuit Boys’. He used to be the band’s driver so we had chat with them all after, which is always entertaining.
We have noticed that Ruben is finding more with his hands now, maybe not with much accuracy but you can tell he is exploring different textures. He has even grown out of his ‘tiny’ baby clothes and into 0-3 month sized clothes !
