>My Week That Was – #3

My lovely friend Katie of Mummy, Daddy and Me Makes 3, has a great weekly link where you blog about your week past, so you can remember the little events as much as the big ones.

We have had a busy week here in the Innocent Charms Chats Family, with a great deal more hospital visits for Grayson and Addison moving from strength to strength, so here is the low down and a couple of pictures.

Monday – saw Me back to a long work day of an external audit, Ash having to be off work as my Mom was busy taking my baby brother out for lunch as it was his 25th Birthday.

It also saw me start my Shred workout DVD but this only lasted 3 days as by the 3rd I couldn’t even get Grayson out of bed (seriously unfit).

Grayson and I waiting for Nursery, 1 of my fave times of the week

Tuesday whilst I was at work Grayson went off to special nursery and managed to puke all over himself and the soft play therapy room, he wasn’t unwell I think they just let him play too soon after food.

Wednesday as I was at work Grayson had a good Physio session and then an even better nursery session, tiring him out for a decent nights sleep of 9.30pm-6.30am.

Thursday I had my 6 monthly eye check(which had actually been 18mth) and found I need a new prescription, we took a trip to the new Super Sized Sainsbury’s, Addison is loving going in the trolley now, it’s one of her happiest times as she is a real people watcher like Mummy. She also chose herself a pretty new top which has “Daddy’s Little Lady” on it.
Addison went to spend the night at Gamma’s as Grayson had another early hospital visit in London on Friday Morning.

Friday was a mixed emotion day, we had fab news that we are going to Disneyland Paris this year for 3 days but then we had Grayson’s 1st Hip Appointment, it was decided that not only the hip joint but the muscles that run it have problems, the are doing some tests under GA in March but it was confirmed there is a possibility it will mean Grayson can never walk. But we are looking to the bright side, so what if he can’t walk he can still bum shuffle, he will prove them wrong.

Looking Smart for some family visits

Saturday was nice, we took the bubba’s to go visit my Aunty and Uncle, my Nana was there too so it gave the kids time to be adored by all. Addison showed of all her new skills of crawling, standing against furniture and being a general Minx.

I can even stand against a glass table Great Nana

Today we have just rested in our PJ’s with a quick visit from my little sister, the kids have been fairly well behaved so all in all not a terrible end to the week.

Other Top News.

Addison on Thursday was found out of her sleeping bag, standing up and hanging over the side of the cot (which was only taken down 10 days ago) so she has now been put on the final level, but she can still stand up and reach over – uh oh!

Addison also cut her 1st tooth this week – finally – it has only come out a smidge but it is cute and very razor like.

I have partaken in a couple of G & T’s this week, considering I have had about 3 alcoholoic drinks in as many years this is a little out of the ordinary for me.

I managed to loose 1lb even though we have had 2 takeaways and not a fab week.

So fairly busy week for us, Addison amazes us with how quick she changes each week and my little man amazes me how well he copes with his countless appointments.

Don’t forget to go check the other weeks that have been.

>I am for the second week joining in the lovely linky from Mummy, Daddy and Me Makes 3, it’s a great basic concept, just blog/journal the simple things from your past week, so that in years to come you can remember the little things of every day not just the big celebrations.

So my week was a busy one.

Monday saw the Hubby and I start out healthy life style kick, it also brought a big day as it was the 1st phone call in relation to Grayson’s special needs trike, so now I really need to get organised and make the Fun Day HUGE.

The week still ran with no boiler as they couldn’t come to install a new one till Wednesday, hubby had a busy day contending with 4 workman, the babies and 2 hrs of therapy for Grayson, whilst I was busy at work getting ready for an audit.

When I returned home on Wednesday Night, I was met with a brand new boiler that was broke, a burst pipe in the kitchen ceiling and a kitchen covered in wet plaster and mess.

Thursday morning we were up at the crack of dawn to let workmen in, as they had to be finished by 11am, so we could make the trip to Evelina Hospital, London to see Grayson’s neurologist (post to come) – we took a nice 10 minute walk as we were early seeing some sights and working off the naughty Krispy Kreme.

Mmm Krispy Kreme’s

Friday we had another 1/2 day of hospital visits for Grayson, which were much to be expected, but was super pleased to find when we picked Miss Addison up from Gamma’s that she was now full blown Crawling. Cousin Finley also popped over for a playdate.

We had a PJ weekend this weekend.

1st’s this week

Addison started crawling
I did my 1st session of 30 Day Shred – Ouch

A very proud Grayson

Grayson ate biscuits three times – not baby biscuits – custard cream and a malted milk
Addy has white in the gums this evening

And the hubby and I both lost 2lbs – woohoo!

Don’t forget to go check out the other weeks had and join in if you fancy.

Picture is Property of Mummy, Daddy and Me Makes 3

The very beautiful Mummy Daddy and Me Makes 3 has started a new weekly linky, I know I am taking part in so much but this is such a lovely one how could I not, it amplifies one of the reasons I started my blog, a little on line journal, I am a huge journaling/diary/scrap booking fan, I love to remember times past and not just the big ones but the everyday moments so this is right up my street.

I am sure I wont manage to take part each week (taking too much on) but I shall try to enjoy this linky.

The gist “To help me look back and remember 2012, even the little things that we don’t normally document. Life is so busy and it would be nice to remember it- not just the nice days out, or the celebrations. After all this is what my blog is for- a journal of our life. They can be big things, little things or something completely tiny, but whatever they are things that made my week- whether happy, annoying, meaningful or pointless.”
Now don’t forget to go visit Mummy, Daddy and Me Makes 3, you have never seen such a beautiful family.

For my 1st week of 2012.

It was a busy week here, Tuesday saw me return to work and Grayson return to Special Nursery.

On Wednesday my Baby Boy turned 3 and had a little Tea Party in the Evening.

Thursday was cold in our house as our Boiler blew up (still waiting for a new one) I couldn’t go to work so we wrapped up warm and had a PJ day.

Friday – I had to venture to work on my day off (boo).

I completed a Day Zero Project task and made Ashley Roast Potato’s for the 5th time, even I thought they were scrummy.

I started my 366 Project and although alot of my pictures are babies based, I am enjoying it and hoping as the weather improves I shall start looking into more what I take.

Grayson wore his gorgeous new Ava and Luc Tee too.

The week was lovely too as Addison is making some big development changes, she took a First ride in a Trolley at the Supermarket and Crawled a few steps (even though I am not sure she knew what she was doing).
