It’s been a brilliant week ending on a high with Mother’s Day on Sunday, it’s also the start of the March when the weather starts to get a little warmer and we say goodbye to those dark nights in favour of lighter evenings. My best bits of last week include our monthly trip to the comedy, our little one standing, and Mother’s Day. We also had our little one’s BCG jab which went surprisingly well. Here’s a look back at the highlights:
Last week was our monthly trip to daytime comedy at a local pub with some of the NCT ladies and their babies. Like last month we had a great giggle over wine and burgers, and baby food. The two acts were stand-up comedian Tania Edwards, and James Redmond also known as Fin from Hollyoaks and Abs from Casualty, I was quite amazed that he was doing a comedy gig for about 50 Mums with babies. I had to Google what he looked like in Hollyoaks, taking me back to when we would watch the Hollyoaks omnibus hungover on a Sunday at uni.
She can stand!
This week our little one gained another new skill, she can stand against something without being held. We have a fabric topped ottoman in our living room which is the perfect height and also soft to avoid any knocks and bruises. It’s also dark grey to hide any dribble marks. I can’t quite believe she can stand, it’s so cute when she does it as she looks like a mini person.
The BCG jab
This is not really a highlight, but it went better than expected so I’m going to write about it. The jab is only offered to those under 1 and in high risk areas of the country, we live in London so we are classed as higher risk. Now with the last set of immunisations our little one screamed the surgery down so I was a little worried about this one, but with the BCG she was fine as the needle only went under the skin rather than into the muscle. They say that a blister or lump may appear up to 6 weeks after the injection which is the body reacting the jab, so far no signs of any lump or blister appearing.
This is the highlight of the week for me. The day started really well with a cup of tea being brought to me in bed, and still being in bed at 8am! I can’t remember the last time that happened. We then all got up and got ready to brave the underground and cold weather of central London for a lovely walk from Green Park to Hyde Park taking in a loop around the Serpentine, before heading back to Piccadily for lunch. Fortunately we managed to bag a booth in Prezzo, we hadn’t booked so we were unsure if we would get a table with it being Mother’s Day. The booth turned out perfect for us and our little one, we were also able to keep the buggy next to us meaning we had somewhere to put our little one when were eating. As it was Mother’s Day I enjoyed a glass of Prosecco on the house, and had a lovely meal of Fusilli Gorgonzola followed by a Blood Orange Polenta Cake. We did have a starter of bread that I hoped little one would share, but it went straight on the floor. My husband was awesome, getting me some lovely chocolates from Hotel Chocolat and a bunch of gorgeous flowers from my daughter (here’s a pic, my first pic on my blog!)
I had a great first Mother’s Day, and I hope that everyone else did too.
