On Monday, we went swimming and afterwards Thomas came home and chilled out with some chocolate milk.
On Tuesday, I went to work then came home and made vegetable soup.
On Thursday, Thomas tried a monkey costume borrowed from a friend on, to see if it would fit for a fancy dress day at nursery soon. I think it is a bit big for him this year but he will hopefully be able to wear it next year.
Today, we went and visited Thomas' cousins and they were playing with something called 'Wammys'. Thomas enjoyed having a hat made for him and liked to model it for us
Yesterday, we went to the Birmingham Nature Centre for the first time. The nature centre is a small zoo located near Cannon Hill Park, just off the Pershore Road in Birmingham. It was very cold and quite a few of the animals were hiding but we did get to see lots of monkeys, meerkats, birds, sheep, goats, and otters. It was a lovely way to pass a morning. Thomas enjoyed it as I took him on his trike, meaning he could see and interact more with the animals. I am hoping we can return to the nature centre in the summer when the weather is warmer!
I have not taken part in The Gallery for a while but I could not resist when I saw this week’s theme of ‘boys‘. Here are my boys in a picture taken a few days after they first met. Thomas was only 3-4 days old when this was taken. This is one of my most favourite photos I have ever taken, showing the two people I love the most. Since this photo was taken, Thomas has grown into a cheeky independent toddler and Stuart has become my husband. They are both still my boys and always will be 🙂
