Potty training?? I've been and bought a potty yesterday after reading a book my MIL gave me, the book says to introduce the potty at about 9-12months. The reason i am thinking about this, I've seen recently a few of my friend really struggle as they have left it late, my friends little girl wont poo in her potty and is 2.5yrs old. When is best to start?? Should i buy another book? After asking my Mum turns out i was toilet trained by 18months and only had a nappy for bedtime. I am having to bigger expectations?? Is 18months plus more realistic?
Christy has made me think about this when looking at her blog. In 4weeks time it will be Billy's 1st Birthday, well i have a cake dilemma! Just looked up on the Internet first birthday cake ideas, the choices are Carrot Cake, Apple Swirl Cake or just my old time fav Nigella's Choco Fudge Cake (the one I've made loads of times and for everyones birthday) or a plain sponge? The point am getting to is that should it be healthy or sod it, feed him sugary junk food that one day??

He has pizza, cheese sandwich and potato wedges in there, i think he's gonna turn in to a hamster! Very strange combo!
Well his party is now booked, the ball pit/bouncy castle is booked. Roll on the 30th June!
He's been playing on the decking today and his knees, feet and hands were so dirty, his baby wash didn't get him clean, ended up using Mummy's shower gel! Good job he'd not been on the grass too - LOL. Oh forgetting we aren't allowed on the grass as Daddy has had the lawn doctor come and treat it! SADOOOOOO!

To start we were just going to have small BBQ, well that idea doesn't seem possible.
Few reasons, if you invite one of our friends, you have to invite them all and they all have been breeding! Breeding?? Well yes, nearly all of your friends have gone from a couple to a family and if not, they are ready to pop a family. We have 2 couples due to have a baby soon and have over 7couples who have babies that go up to the age of 3yrs! COMPLETE NIGHTMARE, this doesn't include, his Grand Parents, Aunties, Uncles and 4 cousins!
Problem is that we've been invited to all party's for the babies that have had them, i don't want my baby's birthday to go unnoticed so i think I am going to invite everyone. This may seem excessive but I'm thinking of hiring a ball pit, i know Billy wont really use it but if i keeps the the 11+kids quiet and from wrecking my garden/house it'd be worth every penny. My house is a quiet big detached and the garden is all usable space and fenced in all the way around, so i think it will be OK! Can you tell from my post that i am really panicking? who'd have thought a 1yr old party could be such a nightmare?? And its gonna cost a fortune!
I think I've lined my self up for this in the past, as when we bought our house we were about the only couple to have bought a house, so we used to have BBQ's and invite everyone and now its just expected!
Only bonus will be that later when kids have gone and we are pi**ed the adults can use the ball pit!
Am i mad?? I know i know i do think about things too hard but i like to plan every last detail!
We regularly visit Luke his little friend who is 6 weeks younger and we see Kian who is 6weeks older and i have friends with children so i have seen quite a few kids grow up.
I have noticed that Billy is like he'd been wound up and let go, he never stops, he's into everything, he shouts when he wants something and will start to jump in frustration, he pants when he gets that excited about stuff, he wants everything that other children have got and will push them out of the way to get it, he takes no notice even when shouted at and moved away. And even shakes his head at you when you say NO, quite funny but the word NO now means nothing. From the kids party he went to at the weekend i saw a definite difference between him and the kids of a similar age to him, he was no timid little angel.
I think I'm gonna have my work cut out with him, I don't give him any sweets/biscuits or processed stuff and from the looks of his behaviour i don't want to either, thankfully he doesn't seem to like them. I think i need new tactics so i don't end up with a unruly little boy.
I was quite offended when one of the Mums commented about him, saying 'God does he ever stop, thank goodness my boy's not like that!' I had to stop my self from been a complete bitch and saying something nasty back.
I'd not noticed how active he was until recent, at least he's a happy boy and loves everyone who talks to him, i just thought all babies were always on the go, all the time like him!

Work is terrible as per usual, but off now for 10days and I cant wait!
Billy has a new word, goes something like nanananing and points to everything but mainly his dummy which at the moment seems the most important thing in the world
He has learnt how to open the bin in the kitchen (see video) and he opens it go to collect something and then drops it in, he's not picky anything will do shoes, tea towels, pegs, toys.....
He's mastered picking his beaker up on his own and can actually drink from it
Our apartment we have booked for our holiday was cancelled! Luck they've put us in another but imagine my upset upon opening the email! Apartment
He is also obsessed with trying to get up stairs and if turn my back he can be at the top in seconds
His bad Mummy let him burn his hand, I have our spare room as my dressing room where i do my hair, make up and get dressed, he loves the room and at any opportunity he will go in there, he even checks to see if door is shut properly, turns out it wasn't and the next thing i heard him scream and he was holding my hair dryer. I really didn't think anything about it until we found blisters on his hand in the grill shape of my hairdryer! Feeling very very guilty about it!
Not lost any weight this week at WW, really i should have gained with crap I've eaten so not upset
He attended his first kids party
This picture is of Luke, the little boy over the road. Just made me chuckle that they'd cleared the tables and he was still sat eating on his own. But it was a iced party ring, so i suppose that was more important!
So many piglets... soooooooooooooo cute!
Wow Mummy i love the swing push me harder!!

Off i went for my hair cut in Sheffield City Centre, parked in the NCP, possibly the most expensive car park in the world. Got my ticket on the way in and went for hair cut, came back with my mop cut, validated my ticket and off i went to the barrier. Upon arriving at the barrier to leave i realised i didn't have my ticket, turned my car up side down and went through pockets. Then decided i must have dropped it as i got in car, so made 2cars behind me reverse up so i could turn round and got back to my space. NO TICKET! So i had to go back down to the barrier and tell the man at customer services what a prat i was loosing my ticket! The BA**ARD charged me again!!!! F*** get! So i am nearly fifty quid lighter for one hair cut!!
My day can only get better, off to work now!

It's been over a week since youngster Madeleine McCann went missing from an Algarve holiday resort. The four-year-old, from Rothley, Leicestershire, Uk, disappeared from an apartment in Praia da Luz on May 3. Madeleine had been left sleeping with her brother and sister, two-year-old twins Sean and Amelie, while her parents, Gerry and Kate, dined at a nearby restaurant. In the UK at the moment this is the biggest news, as so it should be.
Madeleine McCann missing in Portugal. Have you seen her?
Please contact: +351 289 884 500, + 351 282 405 400, +351 218 641 000
But i am happy with the mess i've made!
Our art work and this is as artistic as i get! (our kitchen wall)
Saw a picture like this on another blog. Just to show how little he actually is! I do think we forget he's so tiny.
- Daddy's football Sheffield United have been religated today and he'd not yet home suspect it will be like the world had ended today when he finally arrives home!
- Billy has been incredibly grumpy all week, with no let up. His cold is still here and showing no signs of going, so snotty noses it is!
- The doc did naff all about his ingrowing toe nails, given me antibiotic cream and said when they get inflamed again to bring he straight back. Apparently they still haven't formed properly and no doctor will touch them at the mo, one reason is they still could correct them self's and the second is that he'd have to have general anesthetic.
- Lost 2lb's at WW this week

I have been reading Hannah's Blog about BB's skin and i know they are two different things but it really annoys me the British National Health Services attitudes to illness the fact they always give you a appointment and it takes weeks/months to see anyone! Reading the blog made me remember when Billy was tiny and how bad his skin was when we first bought him home, it was so bad that i went to the doctors in the morning and by the afternoon he'd been referred and was seeing a paed at the hospital, who look couldn't find any reason for it so referred him to a skin specialist and the appointment took nearly 6weeks to arrive but thankfully he was better by then, but the lack of concern is amazing! The picture was taken on the 5Th August and he was born the 28Th June so he was just over 5weeks old and he had the rash from coming home from hospital at 5days old and what you can see on his face was everywhere.
Anyone who can give Hannah some suggestions/advice please go over to her page and post a comment.
This is strange looking at this photo, as it really doesnt look like my little boy!

What been happening some important some not so....
- Tosh's boss's funeral on Thursday (died at age 60 of cancer, very quickly only found out in January he was ill)
- My new boss has been announced and as i was slightly worried i had good reason to be as its Sarah!
- We've had ants in our house - i was very upset! I hope no one thinks this is because my house is filthy because its far from that. Turns out when mentioned lots of people have them at the mo, even been on the news. Apparently its because we've had a mild winter??!! But i have gutted the house from top to bottom and now have traps everywhere! (no sign of them anymore)
- I've joined weight watchers finally
