Daddy went down to borehamwood again that weekend to see grandma and mummy and granny looked after the kids.
The nanny is settling in great and she took the babies to toddler group where they caught colds so mummy's time without daddy included snotty babies. Which meant they kept waking up overnight.
Mummy and daddy both got the cold as well. This has not stopped us from having lots of outings with the babies to - tescos, swings at the park, matalan and, today, a fair at Weston Park.
In the last month Beth is now pulling herself around the furniture and occasionally chucking herself backwards in an attempt to stand without assistance. She has taken up pointing and round and round the garden.
Lex has taught himself to sit up unaided and does this every few minutes. He is very proud of this feat. He now says 'Ga! Ga!' on a regular basis and we are not entirely sure whether this is mama, dada or grandma. He also claps with gusto but has not realised it takes two hands so he just waves one hand up and down.
Charlie has taken up breakdancing and spins around on his head by peddling with his legs against the wooden floor. He has decided shouting is 'the' way to get fed and does this regularly. In the last few days he has realised crawling is a more effective way of getting around.
They are getting more and more fun every day - and they were already fantastic.
Charlie, Beth and Lex.
