July has been another fairly quiet month for us. At the start of the month we had a trip up to the Lakes to see Barry’s mum and dad, and we went on the Lakeside & Haverthwaite railway (I’ve still got a vlog to edit about it that I’ll get round to doing one of these days).
We had Toby’s birthday this month too of course, but the celebrations were quiet ones at home. It’s Gabe’s birthday in a few weeks too and we’re planning a little family party for bot of them then.
Other than that we’ve had a few trips to the park and not much else really. Toby is slowly getting used to the idea of starting school soon, we’ve even started a countdown wall chart so it doesn’t come as too much of a surprise when it happens, and I managed to get him to try on his uniform the other day, after a bit of a protest!
And Gabe, at almost two, is finally consistently sleeping better. It’s still not every night but he is sleeping through a lot more than he ever has before. He is talking a lot more now too and I think being able to communicate is helping him with his frustration so we’re not getting quite as much random wailing as before either. I’ll be writing a proper update about him for his birthday anyway but I love this age – it was one of my favourite times with Toby too.
