Is it just me or has January been the longest month ever?! It’s just been another normal week for us really. The weather has been a bit better this week at least so we’ve managed to walk on a few more school runs.
On Tuesday Toby started a yoga class after school – we’ve done Cosmic Kids Yoga on YouTube at home a few times so he was keen to have a go. He loved it by all accounts so that’s good – it’s only on until half term though I think so not long. They have different things every half term though so we’ll have to see what the next one is.
Toby had his swimming lesson as usual on Wednesday – he’s done everything he needs to do to get his next certificate, except put his face in the water which he’s terrified to do! We tried to get him to do it in the bath at home but he wasn’t having it at all. If anyone has got any tips how we can encourage him to do it then do let me know – he’s already got goggles but they don’t seem to help!
Toby had a busy Saturday – a soft play party in the morning and then we went out to meet my brother and sister-in-law in the afternoon, and then we went to Pizza Hut for tea. So yesterday we had a day at home to recharge for the week ahead – this picture was taken when he was watching Up in the afternoon and chilling out.
Gabe has had another good week. We had a couple of ropey nights’ sleep but I think that was just because he had a cold, and he seems to be back to normal now. He’s doing great at preschool – he’s so settled now and never cries when I drop him off any more. And Gabe was a bit more successful at swimming than his brother – he went under the water again on Friday! He did it once before Christmas but hasn’t wanted to since we went back after the holidays so I’m pleased he was brave enough to give it another go.
We had a couple of quiet afternoons at home this week – Gabe loves being able to play with all the toys without his big brother around. He loves looking through things at the moment – we’ve got a magnifying glass, mini telescope, binoculars, and this camera too…
See you all next week – when it will finally be February!
