How we are doing

I've been here four months now. Jo and Lily have been here for three (and Molly and Jake two). So, how are we all doing?

Progress in general is good and we are loving our little house. We have painted two rooms (one apricot and one lilac) and put up some pictures so it feels like a home.

Jo is liking it here and keeping herself busy with a variety of baby related activities. Lily goes swimming on a Monday, to playgroup on Tuesday and Thursday, to Music group on a Friday and I think something happens on Wednesday as well. All good.

Lily's been ill this week. She's had projectile vomiting and stinky nappies. Pretty distressing for us all, but she's better now and back to her happy self. She's nearly nine months old now and desperate to crawl. She goes backwards about 6 inches then gets frustrated and starts crying. She's mostly happy though.

We can tell Molly has settled in because she is getting uppity. She gets jealous if any attention is paid by the pack leader (that's me, in her eyes anyway) to any other member of the household. She likes to stand on the back of the sofa and stare out of the window ready to bark at passers-bay. So she's back to her old self, slightly highly strung and stressed by the weight of responsibility she feels because she thinks she's my number 2. Jake knows his place.

The vege garden has been cleared and fenced off from foraging dogs. We have had lettuces and there are potatoes and cabbagey things on the way. I consider it a success.

Things have been quiet this week. I am currently watching Moon TV, a sketch show featuring Speedo Cops - police officers dressed in swimming trunks (and shirts) for no apparent reason. It's hilarious!

Glad to hear you are all doing well and congratulations as the sender of my first received card of the season.
