This afternoon we looked after Jackson while Pam took Sophie to dancing.
Xander and Esmee absolutely loved having him here! They both had a cuddle and brought him lots of toys and just delighted in making him smile and laugh. They just love babies, if we had another one the poor thing would be smothered with love.

Esmee at the hospital

Esmee had her EEG today - brain scan - for her partial seizures. Luckily she hasn't had any more since the last one three weeks ago! She was a bit upset getting the probes stuck to her head but calmed down pretty quickly on daddy's knee and had a cup of tea.
The technician expected her to fall asleep and after 40 minutes called an end to the test. Of course Esmee didn't sleep, our wee girl only sleeps in her bed!

She had great fun jumping in the leaves on the way back to car, totally unfazed by the funny probes and hat she'd had on her head.
We will get results in two weeks, so will keep you posted.

Xander is just crazy about trains at the moment and for a special treat we packed up Thomas and put up the electronic train with James and his moving eyes! It was so fun watching Xander use the control making him go fast and slow.

Esmee has a new bed

Esmee's king single bed arrived on Thursday afternoon. Xander was a big help helping to push it into her room and then screwing in the wheels.
The bed can we pulled apart and the base slept on as well as the mattress.

Testing out her new bed. It was great dressing the bed with the duvet cover i made for her! and she seemed to like it too.

Last night she even slept in it! and without a dummy. I left it at a friend's house much to Esmee's disgust at 5 this morning when she realised she didn't have it!
But she is asleep now for her afternoon sleep in her new bed too - so our baby is definitely becoming a big little girl!
