Anyone know of any blogs with IDEAS to make and do with babies???
I have spotted an Idea called Sensory Bottles, or Water filled bottles with coloured drops glitter and fun colourful items in almost like snow globes. I like it and would like more Ideas like this.........
Off for a think...

In the last post. Paddy was nearly Crawling.
Well I can say she is doing pretty well, She managed to spot my camera (which was filming), next thing I know she is up next to it about to pick it up!
I have some pictures to show, But have yet to figure out how to show a video...
Paddy and I watched Postman Pat yesterday lunch whilst we put the washing away.
She has sooo many clothes to choose from, half of them are for around the flat and bed.
Last night Mummy mocked up a new play area where the only things to bump into are the sofa, wall and a few legs. (chairs and table) oh and daddy when he is at the table.
Paddy explored it a little before bed then properly at playtime this morning.
This afternoon and this evening was a lot of fun...
Nana Mumble popped round and had picture book time and Paddy was even sitting up on her own until she decided to play lazy.
This evening.. a den has been added to the area... and all you can hear from Paddy's direction is...
"bink bink bink. choose an activity....... Bink, do do..... how many. EHEH! wrong ans, bink"

I managed to get Video footage of Paddy attempting a first crawl. It's so close, I have already had to move the Christmas presents from behind the sofa, into the back room and a few wires that aren't being used have been put in draws.
I will need to get something to put the printer on. It is no longer safe. I may find Photocopies of hands and faces If I am not careful.
I would like to get a better video.
The coaxing with her Fido toy caused me to make the camera rattle too.
I'll see what I can do.

But FIRST..... A LITTLE CATCH UP WITH PICTURES...
Little lady catching Zzzzs on the sofa late in the afternoon.
Friday's Attempt at a Banana and spice Molei friendly cake.. (there is only a small amount left)
Paddy deciding Mummy's computer is more interesting than her own AGAIN.
And Watching the Washing machine on full spin whilst mummy washes dishes.
Today, A little Bumble Bee. Nana Lou (manx girl) sent over a while ago. she finally fits into it...
Our afternoon out was down to Winterbourne House and tea room.
unfortunately It was busier than expected, Santa's grotto, Edwardian toy display and Caroling all very busy for the festive cheer.
The cue was tooo long to go see Santa for the first time, but as you can see, we saw the toys and one or two other rooms around the house after a nice pot of tea and cake (or a small pot of custard in Paddy's case).
I love steam locomotives, all sizes And carousels. When I don't get to have a go on one, there tends to be a pet lip. Even as an adult, they are so beautiful.
this is what I would describe as a drawing room, It's windows look over a large, well groomed garden. Maybe in the warmer months we will go and have a wonder around them.
Ah, the nursery. Myself and Mumble Loved this room, we wished we could go further than the ropes.
We will Visit again, after the new year, it was just a little too busy to stay for long.

On Sunday the 8th December, Paddy is 6 months old!!!
Where has the time gone??
She is on my lap pressing the odd key, So it is taking me a little longer than it normally would to type.
If I dare put her on the floor to play the end of the world will be nearing.
I will just have to put her in her bed to grump and sleep once it is time for housework.
This was Saturday morning, Playing with Mummy as We decided she still wasn't well enough to go out.
Paddy and I hadn't been out since Sunday afternoon and Yesterday (Sunday) I was chomping at the bit, Molei suggested Reddich because Town is mental around christmas
paddy on Monday morning before a tantrum.
And how far my blankie has got. "TAHDAH"!!!!!!
I have gotten a little further than this picture now... Occasionally having to stop mid row to sort Paddy out or do something else.
I am proud of the fact that this is the biggest project I have done yet and havn't attempted to unravel it.

Paddy has had a bug since Tuesday night. it has subsided, but her tantrums haven't.
An over tired stuffy nosed Paddy taking a paddy isn't fun.... All we can do is give her some calpol, some herbal teething powder and her dodey with cuddles until she decides to go to sleep, that and keep her hydrated and fed.
She is currently chewing on the ribbon that attaches her to her dodey and fingers trying her best to be a wriggling nuisance on the floor wanting to grab anything in sight (my toes).
Poor Mite. Snoozing on mummy after some Calpol and a Grump.
Woke up after a kip on mummy and in bed (two and a half hours), feeling a little less groggy.
BIG SMILES.. this evening after finding her way to the Christmas present stash.
Playing noisily this evening beating her book up.
on mummy's lap chuntering away eating her hanny.
The beginnings of a blanket, how far I managed to get yesterday.
Today's Effort on the blanket whilst Paddy was on the floor playing the Purple side will grow to a point to show how the blanket will be.... (diagonal zigzags) and the baby pink side will grow on a diagonal to make a rectangle.

I decided to attempt crocheting a cardigan..... I'm on attempt 20 of getting to a certain point and then getting wound up with it and unraveling it!
.....So I am going to attempt a Big "Butted" blanket. something to decorate the bedroom a little more and curl up under or to lay over Paddy when asleep in her cot. presently looking through magazines and google for inspiration....
I would start playing but there's a cold ridden, snotty nosed little Paddy on my lap snoozing clinging to Rosie. Is it safe to put her in her bed r will she wake up???
In the last day or so a tooth started showing through. So, theres going to be less of mummy being used as a teething toy. I don't want to be chewed on, not when teeth are involved.
It just shows the various frozen treats, theething powder and gel. Oh and the tantrums.... Alll paid off so far....
