Beacon Park, Birthday Parties and Teething Hell


It's been a bit of a mundane week in the Doughty/Miller household this week. Gone are the beautiful clear skies and in replacement we have had dark clouds and rain. I find it hard on weeks with poor weather to get out and about. I don't drive which restricts me when making choices about which places to visit with Jack. I ended up trying to leave the house whenever it stopped raining and was caught out more than once. This ended up with Jack nice and dry under the pushchairs rain cover and me pushing him along whilst looking like a drowned rat.

The week started with Bank Holiday Monday where we took Jack to Beacon Park in Lichfield. We made the most of the last of the good weather and took Jack to the playground. He loved the slide in particular and cried when we went home. Jack played in the sand and couldn't quite work out whether or not he liked the feel of the sand on his fingers. I worked Monday Night and then lazed around the house on Tuesday as the bad weather set in.

 

Jack has been teething pretty badly this week. He is currently cutting his fourth tooth and has had three or four really restless nights leaving us all feeling quite tired and poor Jack feeling particularly cranky. We spent the majority of the week inside due to the aforementioned bad weather. Jack didn't seem to mind this too much thought as he has taken a liking to the Mega Blocks we bought him for Christmas and wouldn't play with anything else. His walking is improving by the day so we did quite a lot of short walks around the block. It took quite a while though as he loves to stop and wave at any passing car. He attracted quite a lot of attention with the bus drivers waving at him often. I think he now expects them to wave back at it him all the time.

Jack stopped at his Nan and Grandad's on Friday Night. After a few rough nights with him at home, I very nearly cancelled. He slept through for them though and was fine, so all was well. We had a lovely evening catching up with various television programmes that we tape but never watch and also had a takeout. (Slimming World is going fantastic...)

On Saturday we went to a family member's fifth birthday party. It was lovely seeing the family and Jack received his very first party bag. It contained a small milky-way, a bubble set and a pair of glasses with a nose. He looked adorable! Shame that I don't look quite so good in them.

See you next week xx
