Last week Harry came home with not only his first ever school photo but a couple of certificates from school. One for 100% gold behaviour and one for an excellent explanation of how he made a snowman. I was so proud of him and he was so happy and proud to show me them.
He also got an invitation for us to attend a special assembly where Harry would be awarded a badge for his 100% gold behaviour. At his school the pupils are given a lanyard (when they get their first badge) and when they have special achievements, they receive a new badge and can get a collection. I think it’s a great incentive for the children.
So on Monday we took a seat in the hall to watch the assembly for Harry to receive his lanyard and his first badge. When his name was called he stood up, excepted his badge from his teacher and stood in the line with all the others getting a badge. His face made my heart burst. He is naturally a shy person and you could see in his face it was out of his comfort zone but he did so well and just smiled, concentrating on us.
The parents were called up to attach the badges to the lanyard and Harry gave me the biggest cuddle. After the parents had sat back down, every one was asked to clap for the children. They all looked so pleased and proud of themselves, including Harry. And then Harry made us all laugh and did a fancy bow (something they had been learning at school) it was so cute!
*Warning* If you are broody, it’s probably best you look away now.
On the 20th February 2017 at 23.49 my lovely niece had her first child, Leo weighing 7lb 110z. He is so beautiful! At the weekend we travelled up to see them (2 1/2 hours away) and I got to hold him (lots), I didn’t want to come home.
I took my big camera so I could take some beautiful photos of him. With my nieces consent I am going to show you some of the photos I took 🙂

Isn’t he just gorgeous?
You may remember a couple of weeks ago I wrote that Harry had chicken pox? Well he’s have all gone now but sadly now Jack has them 😞
Monday, Tuesday and Wednesday he didn’t seem too bad, just a little spotty and maybe a bit more sleepy and clingy than usual. Sadly Wednesday night (last night) all changed and he was very very unsettled. Poor thing kept falling asleep then waking up scratching. He wanted cuddles but couldn’t get comfy. It was awful to see him so sad.
Today he is covered in spots and not happy at all.
He’s not eating anything and doesn’t want much drink either but we are managing to get some down him.
We’re really unsure of how to ease them because with Harry he just had lots of baths with oats but Jack hates baths and acts as if you’re putting him in acid.
So it seems that was only a mild case and it got a lot worse! Poor thing is completely covered from head to toe, has been so sad that it is heartbreaking and has not slept through the night for over a week 🙁
