Week 49
04 - 10 December

Festive window

Back in the window for this week's picture. The day this photo was taken was the first time Jamie had seen snow, for all it was at the "light dusting of icing sugar" level. He's beginning to draw connections with various books but he's quite fascinated by the way his familiar window views have changed over the last couple of months.

I got him the festive window gels. We don't have much of a tree going on this year - no space to put it! - but we've got decorations on the walls and shelves, and when I saw these window accessories I knew he'd love them. He doesn't like to touch them with his own fingers but he carefully shows me where to place each one, and if one comes off he wants it right back where it was. For £2.50/pack they're surviving much better than I expected.

Week 48
27 November - 03 December

Steve had to get up silly-early for work this week, and while Jamie usually stays asleep, on this day he woke up, and it's hard to persuade a two year old that it's still night time and he should go back to sleep when he's had nearly a full night's sleep and can hear morning-type sounds.

As a result, the nap that usually happens in the afternoon, happened in the morning, and by 2pm Jamie was fully rested, fully fed, and ready for whatever the world had to offer on this muddled-up day.

Winter playground

What it offered was this: the really good park in Stratford, practically empty and glowing with a winter sunset. We stayed until dark (about 4pm, sniff) and even then he didn't want to leave.

Yes, he did end up having a second mini-nap.
