Sandwell Valley, Farm Time and Snotty Baby

by - 12:13

It's been a bit of a busy week this week. The week started with a lovely trip to Sandwell Valley with my sister and Jack. The sun was shining so I thought I would make the most of it! With lots of grassy fields Jack put his new found walking skills to good use. It's so strange to see him walking. He has been walking around the house a lot but this is the first time he has walked well outside.

Jack loved the adventure playground. Whilst the majority of it was aimed at older children there were things that Jack could use such as the toddler swings and a sandpit. It was particularly hard to get him away from the sensory equipment.

We enjoyed our visit so much that we actually went to Sandwell Valley twice this week. I didn't want Wayne to miss Jack walking outside. We also took Jack to Forge Mill Farm. Forge Mill Farm is a small free to visit working farm where Jack saw Ponies, Pigs, Chicken, Cows and Sheep for the first time. I've never seen him so mesmerised and interested in something.

I also took Jack to Walsall Arboretum this week. It was so nice to get out of the house and be outside. I don't drive (as I may have mentioned before!) so when my dad popped over unannounced and suggested it I jumped at the idea. Jack is fascinated by daisies in the grass and only managed a few steps before seeing them and stopping. This continued for an hour...

Towards the end of the week I saw my nieces who had colds and two days later Jack came down with one. It's horrible when they are not well. He is also teething so a lethal combination. I think I'm in for a few sleepless nights which I will no doubt fill you in on next week!

See you soon
