My eyes were opened last week after trying a ‘Clubbercise’ class with a couple of friends. I had no idea the lights would be off, and there would be glo sticks. It was a good work out, and the whole concept really tickled me – it was like going back in time. I also went to see ‘La La Land’ and I’m not going to lie, I can’t persuade myself that I wasn’t disappointed – because I was. I liked it, just not as much as I’d hoped. Definitely worth seeing though.

R: Ru and I snuggled in ‘the big bed’ for a whole afternoon reading books. He kept telling me off whenever I closed my eyes. Ru I and I have finally settled into a little routine, and it’s lovely.

O: O gets so much attention from the boys, particularly Ru. I am relieved that he doesn’t seem to mind, and carries on as if nothing is happening. Last week we started letting him completely feed himself with a bowl and spoon. Getting him to eat has been so frustrating, but he is so much better now he’s completely in control. It’s messy, but he is eating so much more.

    I’m going to see La La Land in a few weeks with a friend and I’m trying not to get too hyped up – like you I think I’d be disappointed if I was expecting too much! There is so much buzz about it. Love these photos of little ones in your bed, I always find myself yawning when I sit down and read to the boys! too relaxing 🙂 xx

      Oh Hayley! I hope you like it. It’s hard to go in with no expectations. The acting is fantastic and so are the costumes and locations. I am finding it hard to stay awake tonight! x

    Reading books together is such a lovely thing to do isn’t’ it. It’s something we love, as much as it can be manic at times with all four we do go for it, but when sharing books with a couple or even one to one its so special. And any excuse to rest is a good one right? Lovely photos, I love these weekly installments x

      I agree Nat! Sometimes they are wired and can only cope with one. But sometimes they can sit and sit xx

    Sometimes babies just really want to feed themselves don’t they? We don’t have clubbercise round here but I think I would love that. The boys look so close, more gorgeous photos this week x

      But it’s so hard to let them do it all because of the mess. I don’t mind a few bits and bobs but when it’s porridge, chilli and everything, I can’t cope! I just have to turn around! Haha x

    Love these photos! And great to hear that O is eating more, sometimes they really do just want to have control and feed themselves. x #LivingArrows

    I’ve seen some really mixed reviews on lalaland, I think I’m going to have to watch it to see. These snuggly photos on the bed are just gorgeous #LivingArrows
