T Stands for...........

 Toddler Two Today

Well strictly speaking, the birthday was yesterday, (Monday), but I like the sound of the title, hehe.
I have just spent a wonderful few days with my daughter, her partner and their little boy, Jack, who turned two just yesterday. They arrived on Friday and go home on Thursday this week. It has been such a lovely time getting to know a sweet little boy with a gorgeous smile and beautiful manners. 

My Wee Man has found it hard at times, having another child in about his home and toys, and disrupting his routine somewhat, but I am proud to say that, overall, he has coped very well. It helped having the foresight to get different toys and books available for he and Jack to share; as they belonged to neither boy, there was no territory to fight over. 

We all celebrated Jack's birthday with a traditional family tea party of jam sandwiches, sausage rolls, mini sausages, crisps, cheeses and of course birthday cake. I'm just sorry that there wasn't enough to share with you all ;)

I am sharing these pictures along with the other ladies who join Elizabeth & Bleubeard each Tuesday over at Elizabeth's hang-out, the, Altered Book Lover.

I was ready for that cup of coffee after getting a phone call from school saying Wee Man wasn't well, for the second time in as many weeks. Hopefully the meds will take effect quickly and he'll be back to his charming self very soon. 

In the meantime, we all sang a little ditty
and the birthday boy blew out his number two candle.

Then came the wearing eating

and a cheeky nap

Isn't that just the best?! What a little rascal he is :o))

From there, he went directly to the bath, hehehe, and is currently fast asleep, as I type.

If you would like to join us for Tea on Tuesday, simply nip over to Elizabeth's blog and read all about it here.

Until next time...............

    Happy belated birthday wishes to Jack ;D

  20. I've missed your posts, Mo. And I hope things are good with you and the Wee Man, too.

    You asked why the 21st, when I said that's when I would reveal my eco-dyeing. It's the only day I have to post, since it's not a Craft Barn Sunday. I have boxed myself into a hole with all these challenges, and all the places I've been lately, so it's the one day I have nothing else to post. thanks for asking.

  21. What a cute wee man - glad he had a lovely birthday and I hope he is now on the mend - Just read your comments on Elizabeth and Bluebeards Blog so sending hugs to the wee man and hoping your technical problems are soon sorted x


Thank you for taking the time to comment, I appreciate every one of them ((hugs)) :-))
