"Mama! You have neglected the blog for far too long. People need to see how awesome I am!"
Okay, okay, I'm sorry!
It has been far too long since I updated the blog with a proper post but the past couple of months have just flown by.
It seems to me that the older Little Man gets the more comfortable I feel simply enjoying being in his company and not worrying so much about everything else. And that is good, but it does mean I have also not had the impetus to actually come online and write a blog post (or read many others for that matter).
The small amounts of time I find myself on the computer nowadays is split into the following order or priority:
- Quick check of emails etc
- Sorting out bits and bobs like car tax, insurance etc (the boring, but essential, stuff)
- Commitments such as the iVillage community boards and the craft blog
- The HG book (research, writing, promoting)
- Everything else (read: blogging)
To be honest numbers 2, 3 and 4 are all very interchangeable depending on how busy the boards are, what point I'm up to with the research and if we even have bills to sort out (who am I kidding, there's always something to sort out). But even so, blogging has definitely come very low down on the list.
I know it's bad when my sister starts complaining I haven't put any recent photos of Little Man online for her to see!
So, for all of you who may want to see what Little Man is up to in this final month of his first year, here are a few photos.
"Mama, why did you let daddy dress me? Have you seen what I look like?"
"Hey, I match my friend Pudsey! Maybe this outfit isn't so bad after all..."
"Mama, you don't need a shopping list. Look, I have it all memorised, you'll see!"
"Mmmm. Daddy always shares a quick snack with me on the way home from the supermarket. That's the best bit about shopping"
All that shopping tires my boy out though... isn't he sweet?
Here he is sitting and quietly watching the "CBeebies Bedtime Story".
He is growing up so fast these days. He is much more able to entertain himself and as he is now walking he loves to toddle around after me most of the day as I go about my business. Sometimes I look at him and can't believe he is almost a year old (how can that be?) and other times I look at him and wonder how he can still only be 11 months old when he seems so grown up already.
I'll be back with some more updates soon. Or at least I promise to try and be back soon!
