There just never seems to be enough hours in the day to fit in everything we want to do - something I am sure many readers of our family blog are familiar with!
Today we took Hermione for her 6 week check at the doctors (she is 10 weeks old on Saturday!) and all is well. She now weighs 10lb 6oz and she is filling out nicely. On the way back we called in to the barbers for hair cuts and Noel and April now look a great deal tidier than they did. Aprils hair is slowly growing back and doesn't look so obvious now, thank goodness.
Yesterday we went to the toy library, the lady there is lovely and she has given me a brand new highchair for Hermione so I wanted to take her some flowers. We got absolutely drenched so when we got home we all put on our PJs and Noel and April set up a little tea party on the table for their cuddlies.
I have booked Hermione's Christening and I have been busy sorting out the arrangements for that. It will be the week after April's birthday so November will be a busy month! She will be wearing the Wills family christening gown, which mum made out of her wedding dress for me when I had Noel, and James and Hannah will be her Godparents. I'm sure there will be lots of photos to come of both special events next month. Its good to have something to look forward to.
Something else I am looking forward to - my good news - Grandma has been offered a flat near my parents house. Its such a relief and it means we can all be there for her much quicker than the 2 hour drive up the motorway. It also means that I can help out and give my parents a break, and spend some time with Grandma. I was telling Noel and April the other day and Noel said "that will be good, I will make her a coffee, April will make her a sandwich and Great-Grandma can just put up her feet and relax". So it looks like there will be no shortage of volunteers to care for her!
One other bit of minor news, we started babysigning classes yesterday and we are now frantically signing "milk" and "sleep" to Hermione at every opportunity - which is quite a lot given how much she feeds! We will be going every Wednesday as a family so that Noel and April can help out with the signs too. Noel really enjoyed himself and got stuck in, April was a little more reserved but I'm sure once she comes out of her shell it will be a different story!
Well thats all for now from the Wills family, sending lots of love to you all xx
