|Upside down: Baby's not in his cot, but his brothers are. |
They love camping inside when they have to look after Baby J for me.
The whole family has been taking turns to fall sick since the weekend, so it's been quite a topsy turvy week. With all that was happening, I decided to just take a break from blogging this week so that I could take time to "reset". It has been very busy on the shop front too, so the break was timely.
|Junior J now helps his brother with his sandals. Lil J struggles like crazy to put these on, and gives up half the time.|
So now, big brother helps him.
Anyway, it has been a week of lots of building. The kids have been helping themselves to various construction sets and building various things. They've been building cars and lollipops from their Superstructs set:
And all sorts of things using their Plus plus pieces (I love this midi set. Big enough for baby to explore, and so many possibilities!):
It has been a week of thunderstorms, and getting stuck out in heavy rain. The boys loved it, watching the rain and seeing it stream down the side of the road.
And Baby J has been having a field time. He's learnt how to climb up and down the sofa, he's constantly wrecking all his brothers' creations, and he's now saying "Papa", "Mama", "bear", "mummum" (for food), and waves and says byebye. His latest discovery? The building sets storage cupboard. He knows how to open the door and would sit there emptying out all the boxes!
|Many people have asked me about these boxes. |
These are shoeboxes from Daiso, and they fit neatly (3 in a row) in the Besta units from Ikea.
We store all our building/construction sets here, like Citiblocs, Lincoln logs and regular blocks.
All in all, he's a pretty happy camper. He's finally succumbed to the bug that has been going around, but I'm hoping next week we'll be all back to normal.
Have a blessed weekend!
