Parents worst nightmare.

It must be every parents worst nightmare, getting a phone call from your child's school saying they had had an accident.

This is what happened to me yesterday. I dropped James off at school as normal then headed down to aldi for their baby event then back to the children's centre for Freddie's baby group. We had not long left the children's centre and as normal I rang my dad to see how my parents were. My phone beeped n then when I hung up I had a text saying I had missed a call from the school. I rang them straight back and found out that my poor boy had fallen over and banged his head. 

I went straight round to the main entrance and then down to the nursery, I found my boy with an ice pack on his forehead. He had been jumping and lost his balance falling over and knocking his head on one of the units.

He's still not really himself and very quiet but I'm sure he will be much better for Monday. 

**Hes had a check up with a&e and he's all good just has a nice egg on his head & bruise**

Freddie at Two Months

Freddie you are now two months old! Its crazy how fast the last two months have gone! 

You started your second month with a stay in The Great North Children's Hospital with a bout of bronchiolitis. It was a long three days & nights for mummy, daddy & James and of course nana & gaga too. You had to be fed by tube for 48 hours & you were also on 0.5 litres of oxygen. Mummy never left the hospital while you were in. It broke my heart seeing you so poorly.

You are just going into 0-3 size clothing although you are still in newborn vests & also sleep suits from mamas and papas. Just like your brother your feet and legs are growing out of sleep suits before your top half! You are in size two nappies. When you were weighed at six week & five days old, Mummy was shocked to see you were 9lbs 13oz! You seem to be hitting the same weights as James did but a week or two before he did. Then when you got weighed a week later before your injections you were 10lbs 7oz! No wonder I thought you were heavy! 

Your feeding has been crazy due to your hospital stay as your feeds were reduced to only two ounces so it took a couple of weeks to get you back up to the four ounces you were on before you were ill. You are generally sleeping from 8 or 9 at night till normally around 3am, then back to sleep till around half seven. Because of this you are feeding every two hours in the day. You can also be such a fuss pot when daddy is giving you a bottle, you will take an ounce & pretend to fall asleep so daddy will pass you to mummy, then suddenly wake up & want the rest of you bottle.

You had a lovely first Christmas, despite being ill & got spoilt off our family & friends! Your favourite presents were your bean bag from nana & gaga, your baby gym from nanny & pappy and your lullaby owl from mummy & daddy.

You seem to sleep better when there is either noise around or when you are in your pram, so when James is at nursery you are normally wide awake! You have started smiling a lot lately mostly at mummy or James. You can never take your eyes of your big brother. James still has finally given you a quick cuddle & he has started stroking your head when you are in your basket. I think now you are getting bigger and vocal he's not as scared of you. 

You went to a birthday party for our friends daughter turning one, you got a nice kiss and cuddle of the birthday girl! 

You went with James for his pre school injections, he was pretty upset, yet you slept through his crying. When it was yours the week after you screamed, which mummy wasn't surprised with. You also had your eight week check at the same time & you were showing off your smile.

I wonder what you will be doing next month

Love you Freddie bear

Our 2015

What can I say about 2015 other than what a year!

January saw us make the decision to start looking into buying our own house. We saw numerous properties till we saw a gorgeous little three bed roomed house in north Kenton. We put an offer in and it was accepted!! 

February we gave our two months notice on rented property and started packing up, clearing out and arranging storage for our stuff.

March we celebrated our fourth wedding anniversary, then found out the day after we were expecting baby two! 

April we celebrated my 30th birthday and also moved out of our rented house and in with my mum and dad while the house purchase went through.

May we completed on the house and took ownership on 27th May! We also announced baby two was on the way after our 12 week scan.

June our gorgeous little nephew Jayden was born two days before his wonderful mummy celebrated her own birthday. We also officially moved into our house! 

July we had our 20 week scan and announced baby two was another boy! James had his first visit to the nursery he would be starting in September.

August was the month James turned three! We celebrated by going to Big Luke's at intu metro centre and watching the metro gnomes show! James also started potty training at last! 

September James started nursery school! We were so proud of our little man! He had a rough start as he was so used to being with mummy, but now he loves it!

October we started preparing for baby boy arriving!

November our second little boy Freddie Andrew Tinline Hockley arrived on the 25th at 1219pm. 

December well first Christmas in our house and first Christmas for Freddie although he slept through most of it! We ended December with a stay in great north children's hospital for Freddie with a bout of bronchiolitis.
