The gorgeous and lovely Katie from Mummy, Daddy and Me Makes 3, has an awesome weekly blog link that I take part in.
My Week That Was – basically is to share an insight into your week past, giving you an opportunity to recall not only big events like Birthdays but also the fun little things like your kid first picking their nose.

So here is my previous week -

We woke to a lot of snow still on the ground but off to work I went
This meant Ash had to stay @ home to look after bubba’s as not possible for them to go to Gamma’s
Addison had her 1st shower for a few months with Daddy and she would get scared and then giggle as the jets hit her
Before I went off to work Ashley assembled and put up the Stair gate – not at the stairs as we live in a flat but to keep Addison safe in the Living Room
Addison had a busy day, she woke up poorly with a cough so she visited the Doctor & went on Antibiotics
So both Bubba’s were on a course of Banana Med’s :-(
Whilst I was at work, Ashley put our beloved Doomoo out and Addison fell in love and started playing and laying on the Doomoo, super cute
In the evening I made the decision to finally take the blog to the next chapter & bought it’s Domain and Self Hosting, watch this space
Work at Home day – Yippee
I was woken by Addison at 5am and after consuming her bottle she vomited all over me (still happening as I type Sunday)
Addison after her early wake up call collapsed in the Living Room on the floor with Upsy Daisy
Our new Stokke Tripp Trapp arrived – woohoo
I got to try out my great OPI nail painting socks that my gorgeous friend Anna sent me
After months of hard work, of constant therapy and play at home I caught a lovely picture of Grayson giving me beautiful Eye contact

Hubby and I both of work for the day, although I spent approx 2 hrs on the phone with work
As Ashley was tidying the flat, Grayson and I escaped for a couple hours around the shops running errands and picking up a Subway for Lunch – which Grayson tried a tiny amount of and swallowed
Some friends of ours popped over in the evening for a little while for a Takeaway and a natter
Ash and I spent till 1am laying in bed chatting and listening to music, making for a tired Saturday Morning
After being awoken by an unhappy Addison at 3.30am, we finally got back to sleep at 4.45am, then Daddy and Addy were back up by 6.30am, but I had a nice snooze till 9am
We then decided no matter the cold we were leaving the house, so off we went met my sister and headed to a Beefeater for Lunch, the food was awful but it was gorgeous to watch Addison and Grayson sit side by side in Highchairs for the 1st time out and about

We then got Addy and Gray’s 1st passport pictures done for their 2 trips abroad this year (jet setters) , Addison’s came out gorgeous, Grayson still gorgeous could not make eye contact with the camera

The evening followed with an impromptu visit to my Dad/Step mums with a nice buffet dinner and assistance with the Bubba’s

Addison looked super cute all day sporting a pair of her Snuggle Feet Leg Warmers


PJ Day today
We have all stayed in our jammies and enjoyed the warmth of our home
I made some chocolate krispie cakes to cheer me and the hubby up, dinner is made for tomorrow, so even though I have not managed any ironing I have been slightly proactive
Addison has a huge love for laptops and sent her 1st email today

Don’t forget to go check out the other entries, they are going to be great.

>Ava and Luc PJ Review – Thanks to Mummy Loves

Written by InnocentCharmer. Posted in 2011, addison, avaandluc, dinasour, grayson, pj's, review, this mummy loves

Here is a review that we got to do with thanks to my dear friend Sonia, Mummy Loves, the review can be seen in full on her blog, including a fab discount code, go now these PJ’s are awesome.

“‘Ava & Luc’ was born in September 2010 after we (Janice Rokita and Vicki Leaver) found that our high expectations of childrens clothing were not being met. Fed up with pastel blues, pale pinks, ‘cutesie’ prints and highly impractical garment design (if you’ve ever tried to get a round neck T shirt over a 12 month child’s head or had a toddler cry about a logo label irritating their neck when you’re out and about with no scissors with you, you’ll identify with the problems they faced!), we started to sketch out what we felt would be an ‘ideal’ sleepsuit, bib, T shirt and pair of pyjamas, then canvassed friends and family for opinions. After lots of positive feedback, we set about manufacturing a capsule collection of clothing with an ethical supplier based in India (no child labour used, employees are paid fairly and work reasonable hours) “

How right are these ladies, Grayson is just coming up 3, he is super tall for his age but also super skinny, PJ’s don’t last long in our house, they always fade, fray and can not live up to Grayson’s bum shuffling.

I was so pleased when the “Stegosaurus Print PJ’s” arrived, beautifully packaged and raring to be tested.

Not only that we both loved the fact that the ankles of the bottoms have elastic to stop him getting cold legs in the evenings, as this frequently happens with standard jammies.

As said above labels can always be a worry about irritating little ones skin, especially Gray’s as he suffers with Eczema, well not with Ava & Luc’s PJ’s, as they sew them on the outside, we thought this was a fab idea and looked pretty trendy too.

Grayson and Daddy put about testing the PJ’s in full, Grayson always has a good acrobatic session with Daddy in the evenings to wind down and these really held up, no riding up from the top and no falling down from the trousers.

So all in all we are in love with Ava and Luc PJ’s, we shall be adding them to Grayson’s Xmas list to Santa and probably Addison’s too so she can’t match her big brother, cause even though she looked cute in her PJ’s she wants in on the Ava & Luc action.
