We're not getting any anymore. End of story.

On a different note, here's some things that took our fancy today...

 A giant chocolate badger (because, quite frankly, who wouldn't want a giant chocolate badger??)

 A (fake) chicken in disguise

 A window display of dried flowers

The York skyline at dusk

Eight weeks in

This week we have:

- made pancakes
- had lots of visits from lovely friends and family
- started clearing and packing for the big move
- eaten too much chocolate (me)
- attempted to eat our toes (the babe)
- not had nearly enough sleep (neither of us)

Pics of a few of our favourite things this week: Jeffrey badger, sweeties (to keep me going through the sleep deprivation!) and Daddy cuddles.

Downstairs at No. 6

We're moving house! In six weeks we'll be moving from our three level terrace with teeny front yard to a teeny terraced cottage with a HUGE garden. I'm very excited but also a tiny bit nervous to see how we'll manage to fit all our stuff in (We have a LOT of 'stuff').

It will be quite sad to say bye to No. 6, it was where the majority of our pre-baby fun took place. But it will be great to say hello to our new family home, where the little bean's first memories will be made. We'll be saying bye to a lot more than bricks and mortar, but it really marks the start of our new adventures as three, not two.

Cue a series of (image heavy!) posts of my favourite parts of No. 6, to show the little bean where we started off our little family.

 My Jones sewing machine / kitchen side table
 The kitchen shelf of oddities
 The view from the kitchen sink
 A living room bookshelf

 The living room fireplace mantelpiece
 Cushions, sofa and toy basket
 The living room fireplace
 A living room bookshelf
 The living room walls
 The living room fireplace mantelpiece
 The kitchen windowsill
Kitchen table clutter

Like I said.... a LOT of 'stuff'.

- become increasingly frustrated that we can't crawl!
- had lots of Valentines treats
- viewed more houses
- watched the baby cinema showing of 'Young adult'
- visited Great Granny
- been to work!
- enjoyed some time with Daddy before he goes off on tour

A plethora of pictures from our weekend adventures. Happy Mondays.
