The last day of the break – and we went to the WETHERBY WHALER :-).  Simon foolishly went for the full Whale – a tad too big really.  Then he was ‘pushed’ into a desert – there was no need !!!

Elliot is definitely beginning to teeth now as he has 2 or 3 mega screaming sessions during the day for apparently no reason.  He has more recently taken to salivating a lot and chewing his hands – apparently all good signs of teething.  We have some gel called CalGel (looks and has similar effects of Bonjella) that really seems to nail the issue within 4 or 5 seconds following deployment.  You can almost see the signs of relief in the little guy’s eyes.

We are sitting here thinking, Christ, we have ONLY just got him to sleep through, and in his own room, and now we have teething to help us no end during the day 🙁

Christmas is obviously just around the corner, and we are hoping that those who really want to buy for us this year, just put some cash to one side to put in Elliot’s bank account – it is ready for donations as we type…

We really have got enough clothes to last through until March at this rate – we really appreciate all those who have gifted us with clothes – thank you very much since most people have chosen a size that we are not quite ready for which of course means that we have a wonderful spattering of different clothes in different sizes.

Also, his trust fund cheque has come through so we need to get that one sorted out pretty soon as well.
