Our weekend in pictures 27/10/2012

Warning, I find it very hard to cut back on the amount of photographs I keep. So much so that I burnt my hard drive out on my laptop recently (thankfully a talented friend fixed it all up for me with a super dooper hard drive and now my lovely Mac is working speedy as anything). And yet I still have over twenty pictures of pretty much the same scene. Only how can I choose which moment is the best?? We are enjoying the crisp air with little trips close to home, to the park to feed the ducks and play on the swings and then home for tea (chamomile for Wilf) and playing indoors with daddy. 
Our sleeping arrangements for a while were constantly changing, at one point we had a cot, a double bed and a double futon all in one room (lucky it is a big room!) and now Wilf and I are in his one day room, with Wilf in his cot for the evening and with me in the futon for the rest of the night. 
So having finally moved Wilf out of our room (and me with him) we pushed the bed back to the wall and started to arrange our bedroom like a bedroom again. 
Co sleeping is a funny thing, Wilf learnt to roll over at three months and was mobile from six, a episode of him rolling off the bed at 5 months or so led me and Wilf to move to the spare futon on the floor and that was the last time I slept in a proper bed! If we were to ever have another baby many years down the line I think the most useful tip we will have learnt is to invest in a bigger bed as a double is really not cut out for three, especially when one of them sleeps horizontal across it. 
We are working on Wilf's sleep and hopefully one day he will go for long stretches. I think then perhaps will begin the transition of me back into my old bed and old room! It will be odd to have all that space again, I know I will miss co sleeping with my little one. It will undoubtedly be one of my favourite memories of the first year of his life. 
Wilf's 'Wilfasaurus' baby grow was made for him by the very talented Bryony Crane who makes amazing custom baby grows/t-shirts and other personalised baby garments. Go check her out you wont be disappointed!

So cute! We finally got a king sized bed (- for free because they no longer needed it - and it was in pristine condition - still had the plastic on it!) Once our baby boy was out of our family bed and sleeping on his own in his room - we had another baby..ha, so much for having the space back!
