Looking back…

I’ve just been looking back over some of my old e-mails when Milo was on his way. I sent this to close friends and family:

Well so far it’s slow going. The first contractions were at 4am on Saturday morning. The first trip to the hospital was on Sunday morning early, but there had been little progress. It seemed like things were moving on this evening, but as soon as we got to the hospital the contractions stopped and on examination were no further forward than they were 24 hours ago. Very depressing.

However the probable reason for it, according to the midwife, was probably due to the fact Andrea had not slept for 36 hours and not eaten for 24 hours apart from 2 bits of toast. We now have a tens machine to try and ease the pain and seems to be working so hopefully Andrea (and I) can sleep the remainder of tonight.

Hopefully with sleep and some more food tomorrow we can get this baby moving!

Which was greeted with this typical Gez reply:


You have the right set of skills to find some tasty morsels for her to eat and drink. DISCIPLINE.

Good Luck

Always knows what to say in an emergency.

Decorating the hall and cloakroom

We’ve just changed the floor in the hall and the downstairs cloakroom. Here are some pictures.

Milo on the slide

Hello. I’ve been practising on the big slide in the park next door today. Watch me climb and slide!

Milo and stairs

Since Milo started crawling in September, we’ve tried to teach him to turn around and slide down stairs rather than approach them head first. He’s now got this down to a fine art as shown below

Mothers day 2013 at the Fire Engine with Milo

We had afternoon tea at the Fire Engine in Ely. Ros, Gary, Andrea, Myself and Milo. We were the last to leave before the evening guests arrived so Milo had a chance to get up and walk about. And have entertainment from Grumpy:

First steps

So Milo started walking for the first time tonight. Here is a video to prove it.

Milo’s new car

We got this from Sainsburys for £15 – special offer! Milo seems to enjoy it.
