Mystery Blogger Award

Three things about me:

  1. I love music, all types: pop, folk, country, rap, classical EVERYTHING and wish I could sing.
  2. I would much rather night in, on the sofa with my husband in my trackies, than a night out.
  3. I love food, especially when I don’t have to cook it and wash up afterwards!

Becky’s Five Questions:

  1. What made you decide to get into blogging – and what’s kept you going?

I was looking for a hobby, I’d just started back at work but for only 10 hours a week and I wanted something I could that didn’t involve housework while Samuel napped, and id tried crochet and I was rubbish, although it is still on my to-do list to learn! I thought blogging would be a great way to document our family life and my son as he grows, and i love helping people, so the thought that through writing I could possibly help even just one person to feel that that aren’t alone spurred me on to give it a go!

2. What three things couldn’t you live without and why?

This might sounds a bit cheesy but my boys: Hubby- Adam, and my beautiful son’s Samuel: 2 (at the end of may when did that happen??!) and Elijah: 5 weeks old, they are my absolute world and I would be nothing without them.

3. Are you a morning or night person?

Definitely a morning person, I like to get up and get going. I’m rubbish in the evening I just fall asleep on the sofa.

4. What and where would your dream holiday be?

My dream holiday would be a safari, I love animals and to be able to visit Africa would be amazing.

5. Pizza Hut or Dominos?

Dominos – without a doubt, it reminds me of nights out with our friends Laura and James before we had children, we would always order a load of pizzas when we got in at silly o’clock in the morning.

My Five Questions to You:

  1. If you were stranded on a island what is the one item you would miss the most?
  2. Do you prefer the city or the country?
  3.  What was the make of your first car?
  4. How many languages can you speak?
  5. Would you rather go a day with out your mobile or a day without food?

Cute baby noises and weird mummy imitations

As soon as Samuel started cooeing, googo and gaggaring me and Adam instinctively started imitating him he loves hearing us say the noises back to him and we have lovely conversations.

I only noticed the problem with this today!

We were having a normal lunch with two normal adults and my beautiful baby boy is sitting in his highchair stuffing his face with as much food as he can get his hands on! I’m having a lovely grown up conversation with one of the normal adult, when Samuel starts to make an ‘ooo GA’ followed by a ‘ha ha’ (everything is hilarious at the minute!!) so instinctively I repeat ‘ooo Ga’ ‘ha ha, is it funny Samuel’ whilst in deep normal adult conversation! No one said anything, they were far too polite (unlike me who interrupted our conversation to make weird noises) but they must think I’m a bit mad!

Even though I’ve only just noticed I must have been doing this for months, to many unsuspecting people.

I get so wrapped up in my little boy that even when I’m with a group of adults, if Samuel makes a noise, talks, claps, smiles or even moves, everything seems to stop and all I notice is him. He amazes me every day how one little baby can learn so much in his first year of life?

Please tell me I’m not the only one!
