Wednesday is Tots club. After my totally disorganised Tuesday I was prepared! Bear had a nap and whilst he was sleeping we got everything ready to go. This meant it only took us 20 minutes from Bear waking up to us out the door. Yeah big pat on the back, and he had a nappy change too. Go Granny! (oh and of course Grandad too)
It was so cold that we snuggled him up in a blanket in the car. He loved it and he napped on the way home too!
Bear never, ever sleeps just anywhere. You will not find him asleep in a box, or amongst his toys or in a swing. He has to have a routine and be coaxed into sleeping. He may sleep in the car if he's really tired. He's learnt a song at Tots club and they all lie down like rabbits sleeping, then jump up. He now enjoys joining in and he even lay down on the sofa and let me put a blanket on him! Only for a moment though.

In my rush to get out I left my phone at home so Grandad took the pictures at tots club which meant there are some with me in. Well my hands anyway.
Bear hadn't played with dough before so needed a little encouragement to get stuck in. He kept looking at Grandad for reassurance.

He's getting so independent now too. Running in the park and loving it.
Back from his walk and shouting at Grandad who encourages things like this, but Bear has also learnt how to say shhh.
|Shouting and Shhh's|
Reading his book and now he can point to the pictures, clever boy.
|Love you to the moon and back, certainly do!|
So what's new this week? He can spin around. He started it with his Mummy and Daddy at his Grandad's house in Pembrokeshire at the weekend. Just out of the blue started spinning. Oh and I've just discovered Vine I love it. I love the 6 second video's. This one will make you dizzy if you watch too long. Maybe I should put a warning at the top of the blog? This could make you feel sick and dizzy lol.
Below is my first embedded Vine thingy. Yeah it's probably got a name. Does it work on your device for you? It would be great if you let me know in the comments below.
He can say toilet and tells us if we've left the door open. This makes me smile because we shut the door on the downstairs toilet only to keep him out.
He also scrammed me. We were sitting quietly when he suddenly grabbed my cheek and scrapped his nails down my face, leaving a red mark. I was very shocked. He did this to his Mummy a while back but hasn't done it to me before. I told him how much it hurt and he gently touched my face with his hand. I felt like he had hurt me on purpose but he's still a baby so I know deep down he didn't. Then a little later he came up to me and kissed my red mark, Aww all is forgiven. It did worry me in case he did it to children in the Tots club but he was gentle, patient and kind there. I read a great blog post by thelsmum after and it seems to be a phase they go through. Lets hope he gets through this one quickly! (update sadly the link to thelsmum no longer works. 23/11/2016).
The crisp mornings have given us amazing sunrises. Here's one from this week.
Well that's our week. Full of spinning, sunshine, shouts and shhh's.
How has your week been?
