General update.

Well. Yeah. A general update.

Caleb is quite the giggler now, we have a hard job stopping him sometimes. It's really good though, I love his giggle. He has also learnt that he can squeek if he breathes a certain way - so, of course, he does it all the time and scares me half to death because I think he's not breathing properly! I think he's going to be a musician. He is always dancing when music is on, and he's always making some noise or a another, and it almost sounds like he is singing. He loves anything that makes a noise, so he has a Lion that roars, a little Lamb that bleats, and a small rattle shaped toy that plays "You are my Sunshine" when you squeeze it.

Another thing he loves - something that is odd for a baby - is having his nappy changed. He always giggles and tries to help. He pulls the tabs open on the nappies himself, atleast on one side, which makes it easier for me to change him! I find it rather odd that he enjoys this - I've never met a baby that enjoys nappy changing.

He's always getting new outfits too.. Here is a picture of him in one his Auntie Shona got him (His Dad's sister).I think this outfit is awesome. The t-shirt, in case you can't make it all out, says "I cry over spilt Milk". Shona thought this was fantastic and couldn't resist buying it for him.
This next one is of him looking rather like a dalmation in his Pyjama's, I thought they were rather cute. I think these were either from his Auntie Mel - my sister, Or Grandad Russ - My dad. It was way back when he was born that they gave me these, hence why I can't remember!

Doesn't he just look SO cute? I love these Pyjama's. They are 3-6 month, but they are still too big for him at 5 and a half months, so I think he'll get plenty of wear out of them, which is good, and cheaper for me too. Give it a few more months, and he'll be in proper Pyjama's, rather than an all in one suit.

Anyway. On another subject, as much as I love going on about my gorgeous Son, I want to rant about the Weather.

We had flood warnings on Friday, and the rain was horrible. So we had to do our food shop in the rain, and we had Caleb with us, as his Granny Kate - who normally has him for the day on a friday - said that the weather channel had warned people not to drive. We saw hundreds of cars out but what the hey. Don't know if any of you have ever tried it, but walking to town in torrential rain with a buggy and no waterproof coat is sure not fun, and not something I'd choose to do again. Unfortunately, we only buy enough food to last us friday to friday, and so if we hadn't have gone shopping until the Saturday or Sunday we'd have had nothing to eat!

And Mum - we found Nemo....
And Dory.....

And the shrimp that liked bubbles! Believe it or not, these shrimp are called "Sexy Shrimp"! They were all at the london zoo, part of my birthday treat from Steve. So ner! I found them all. We did find Finn to, but the piccy wasn't very clear.. =( I shall post a blog with a link to my deviation of the London Pictures, as there are just too many to put in a blog. I think there was around 130..

Anyway. Thanks for reading. Hope to see some comments soon *cough*Mum*cough*Mel*cough*

Lol. Speak soon.

I hate the bank.

Basically, I think the title says it all. I hate the bank. I'm sick to death of them messing me around. Last month, someone used my card in France, and they've done it again this month. I've never even been to France! They could have had the decency to take me with them seeing as they are using my account!! And It's around £65 each time!! I'm so not happy. Also, there has been other fraud on my account. £200 - £140 of which wasn't even there - has been taken from my account. It was taken on a Sunday when I was at home watching films with my future hubbie. And it was in an adjoining village to the town centre. I live in the town centre, and the one it was taken from, if I were to walk to it, would take me a good 40minutes. And if I were to walk to my nearest one it would take about 5minutes. Which am I likely to choose if I needed money, eh? It has infuriated me more than it normally would, as the money that was in there is the money needed to pay the bills. Luckily I managed to pay them OK, but it was a close call!

Oh well. Never mind. The bank will sort it out. They best do anyway. I've sent off all the forms and stuff.

I'm looking forward to the end of this month, as I am going to take Caleb to go and see my family again. He's a little older now and might enjoy it more than last time as he will be awake more of the time and can spend time with his Auntie Mel and one of his Grannies. Although it might be a few days later than I originally planned, because of the problems with the bank. Gah. It will be good fun though. I'm taking my sister's birthday present up with me when I go, (even though her birthday isn't until mid october) and she is keeping mine from my birthday last week until I go up there. So it will be a present exchanging time too. Always good!!

I've got a couple more pictures of Caleb now, here is one of him sitting on the sofa propped up with cushions at his Dad's Mum's house - Granny number 2 - reading one of those fabric baby books. Well, looking at it and then seeing if it tastes any good, rather than reading!!
I suppose he kinda looks like he's asking us what exactly we want him to do with it. But just seconds before we took this he was chomping away on it quite happily!!

Enjoy - comments please!!
