Little Lamb and I had a lovely day today. We started off by meeting my sister-in-law and nephew for a picnic in Castle Park. It’s so useful having such a beautiful (and big) park local to us. It has everything you need for an afternoon out with the kids. There’s plenty of grassy area for picnics, or if you’re like my nephew, running around like a mad man! There’s a lovely cafe, a boating pond for the older kids (when I say older, I mean older than Jaxson!) And the most amazing park for the kids to play.
The boys have such a lovely relationship. Indy is always so excited to see Jax, and well, Jax just soaks up everything Indy does. In fact, he’s saying words that Indy repeats a lot. Like ‘guys’, ‘hi’, and even ‘Alex!’ Although it doesn’t sound like that, it’s more like ‘axe’ or ‘lix’ but either will do! We are all really looking forward to when they can run around the park together. It was so cute to see Jaxson getting jealous of Indy running around with us. One day soon (I hope) he will be the one I’m chasing. He’s almost there, just needs the confidence to let go!
Now I’m back at work, I make the most of the days we have together. I try to do something with him everyday, even if we just go for a walk. We bought Jaxson a Smart Trike for his birthday, which he really enjoys, and is a quick and easy (and cheap!) way of getting him out of the house.
So that’s exactly what we did after our picnic with Indy. Out came the Smart Trike and off we went. Jaxson is starting to really enjoy going to the park now he’s cruising around. It gets a little repetitive when he wants to walk up the same ramp, then go down the same slide over and over, but so cute to see the smile on his face when I let him do it again. He’s not a massive fan of the swings yet. He hates being trapped, and thats probably what it feels like. High chair, pram, car seat, swing – you name it, he’d rather not be in it! I’ve got a feeling he won’t be in his pram for very long after he’s walking.
Lamb’s favourite part of the day (and mine) is bath time. So we finished off our Sunny Sunday with lots of splashing. The older he gets, the longer he wants to stay in. He has plenty of bath toys, but at the moment he just wants to play with a plastic jug! He’s fascinated by filling it up with water, then pouring it out. You really don’t have to buy a baby any toys, they will pretty much play with anything!
So that was our Sunny Sunday. A fun-filled day doing everything we love, and it didn’t cost a penny! Apart from petrol and lunch of course. What do you get up to on your day’s out? We’d love to hear about it.
