In August Oliver has come on in leaps and bounds: He's getting super vocal and can say 'Dada' and 'MA', he can sit unaided and he's guzzling down food like tomorrow may never happen. | Books, as always, have been a big part of the month, expect that on all months, books are always important. | And, unfortunately, the health stuff has been a big thing too. I've had some half answers but I still have lots of questions and, amazingly, some brand new health stuff has appeared!
I haven't been able to crochet as much as I'd like in August but I have enjoyed the bits and bobs that I've done. | I've been trying to remind myself to do things that I love, every day, things for myself and this plaque from my Treat Box helps. | Of course August has been a very Ethan centric month, with it still being the Summer Holidays. He's been able to do some lovely things (mostly with other people) and, overall, has had a good break.
More book stuff, of course, this necklace, from my Crime on the Pages box, is one of my favourite bookish accessories. | In August I've started trying to improve my handwriting. I can't do handwriting for long, due to hand pain, spasms and weakness, but I want what writing I do to be pretty. | And this face, again, because whyever not? I can't believe he's half way towards 7 months already, he's a delight. I am a very lucky Mummy, with both of my boys.
It's a very quick overview of the month, but I like it. It's a nice way to show you a few things without going in to big, long, rambley, depths of information. I have managed to get a few posts up, recently, but as always we shall see how that goes. But, as I said, keep up on Instagram if you want to stay in touch, I'm always there.
