busy little bee

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.

Teeth!!! and cardigan fustraition!

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....

OCD and Pad'a'one

Between housework and playing with Pad'a'one, at nap time there is ALWAYS time to doodle here and there.
Just to prove OCD rules the creative station... and they get used in order too.... even when there's a structured picture.

What I call scribbling in deep thought and nothing that interesting. Molei loves the outcome most times. The lack of taking notice of what I am doing works better than thinking of where the next mark is going.

In other words I don't know what it is until I decide to make a brew (cup of tea/ coffee) or Pad'a'one awakens.
This pne looks like a Muscle with seaweed surrounding it

Ah, a Finished Product. Popop's Hat is finally done, including a pompom on the top (if you can see)
He loves it. And uses it as his weekend ware. 
As you can see, I have a small head. 

Agh. the cutest member of the household.
Its hard not to let your heart melt when you see this face...
OOOO you just want to cuddle her all up.

Reversing around the sofa to the stash of Christmas presents , Gonkey was soon knocked over and left for dead.

she was on the other side of her play blanket..... And then....
She was at my feet.
As you can Imagine, the reply to her various "eeeeeeeew, biwwwwwww. AAAAAaaaah"s
"what do you want?... I promiced no such thing.!  Ask daddy when he comes home."
Look who I found Taking over more bed than me after morning daddy cuddles....... Cheeky.

artist's block.

No crochet, LOTS of pictures, books, magazines and still end up unraveling it and starting something else after 3 rows.
No drawings or doodles. Similar problem, Plenty of ideas and pens and pencils just aren't moving or it gets screwed up and chucked to the other side of the room in aim of the bin before it looks of any interest...
There is one thing good happening...
"Yes? you called??"
playtime at 20 weeks soon realizing there is a tower behind her to destroy and pillage.
Playing peepo behind Rosie and Flopsey who recently went in the washing machine and got watched go round and round in want.
Pillaging a block. all you can hear from this block is jingling sounds. anything in her hands gets chewed on.
Look at that cheeky face!!!!!! you just want to CUDDLE her all up. There is always time and fun thinking of new games and faces that make her laugh (proper giggle on her now) and she loves anything soft and touchy now... so she often has her books slobbered all over. This particular book is now in the wash for the second time this week due to puke, Both times.
Mummy loves to play, if this involves getting as mucky as Pad'a'one, then so be it. We only run out of smiles when Pad'a'one says it is nap time. then whilst asleep, Mummy does jobs and at least attempts to be creative.

Nana Came to visit. and a sleepy looking Pad'a'one is looking to mummy wanting a cuddle before nap time

On Sunday ( 10th) Pad'a'one turned 22 weeks, our little lady joined us in Reddich for a little bit of Christmas Shopping. She slept through most of it.
Then she played on the floor with Popops.
She has recently been DADDY's girl. looking for him when he isn't home, Lots and lots of cuddles and falling asleep on Daddy some bedtimes and naps.
Also when rolling, showing belly off the floor and attempting to crawl she attacks His feet stealthily tickling, making Daddy jump and setting off her little giggles
She used to cling to me when tired, It is nice to be able to wonder about getting her bedtime feed and teething powder at hand for her midnight snack as well as the brew (cup of tea) and snack duties.
