My husband and I say “stuff and things” as a reply that basically means “I can’t think of anything to say right now” or something like that. It’s difficult to explain our weird ways to others.
Anyway, I’ve decided to take “stuff and things” as a label for posts about our day to day life. Rather than all the comment on various DS/baby issues… Just a little catch up on what we’ve been up to (if anything!). So here goes, the first chapter of stuff and things…
This week I gave Audrey a cold sore 😦 it was always going to happen, I get at least 2 a year and Audrey and I kiss a lot).They don’t seem to be bothering her, but they are bothering me – mine has cleared up, she has one either side of her mouth in full swing, so we can’t kiss! Booo.
In happier news we went to Woodfest in our local park on Saturday. I held a tiny owl and Audrey watched. Then we headed to the Brighton Food Festival on Hove Lawns and Audrey went on her first fairground ride with Daddy!
Audrey wasn’t that fussed about the ride, but she liked seeing me on the sidelines.
Sunday we went to a DS picnic back at St Ann’s Well Gardens. I didn’t take any pictures, doh! But we met up with other local DS families and Audrey managed to nap even though a little 3 year old monkey called Thomas came over to investigate and squeezed her foot. She also slept through Elliot passing by whilst roaring like a dinosaur… Ahh the toddlers are quite an eye opener!
Fun to see other little uns with DS doing well and having fun with their siblings. There was even a guy and his wife who popped by – their niece was born last week and unexpectedly had DS. How amazing that he took the time to look into the local DS community, his sister having only given birth last week! What a fab uncle.
Last night Audrey had her sleep study to hopefully sign her off from the care of the hospital (and confirm she doesn’t need to go back on oxygen at night), no idea how it went as she is in her own room these days. The probe was off her foot in the morning though, wriggly little lady! Fingers crossed….
