Pour Mamou!

My wonderful mother-in-law misses her two lovely grandkids and so this post is for her. With LOTS of photos taken these two days.

Laetitia trying out her ski suit (We're going to the Alps to ski after Christmas! YOOHOO) and showing the picture of what she was going to do.
Pulling a silly face as usual!
Loïc, looking adorable.

Laetitia looking oh so sweet. She is really a delight most of the time.
Sibling love. The photo is a little blurry but they both looks so cute.

A recap of the last month.

It's been a busy month with new school for Laetitia, new daycare for Loïc etc. Routines were changed and the re-adjusted.

I tried to do stuff with Laetitia on Wednesdays when she does not have school and Loîc is in daycare but the last few attempts did not go too well. I took her to a circus workshop where she could learn to go on the trapeze, walk on the rope etc but three seconds into the start of the workshop, where there was a performance first, she freaked out! She was scared of the clown. Second week, I tried to bring her to a kids theatre with a storyline about a bear that grows up and once again, with two seconds of walking into the theatre, she ran out. It reminded her of the previous week (darken room etc). Sigh. I think I'll skip those kind of activities for a while. The first week we went swimming and it was great but I felt that the weather is getting a little too cold for swimming. The pool is not heated even though it is indoors and once we get out of the pool, it is really quite cold.

Anyways, here are a few photos from the past month.

My kids (with Laetitia pulling a silly sad face)
Laetitia and her friend Anna. (Once again pulling some silly face!!!)
Playing ball with her friends Estelle (our neighbour) and Alicia. They all go to the same school.And having lots of fun on Estelle's skatescooter. She has been asking for one forever. I suppose Father Christmas (Santa) is going to bring one this year.

Teething nightmares and all.

The last month has been crazy. Loïc has been teething and it climaxed in difficulties with him running a fever above 39 degrees for almost three days. The poor boy was in such a bad shape. His nose was running badly and he could not breath properly. His gums were also sore. All these made him very grouchy and he was not nursing much as it was tough for him to suck and breath through his mouth at the same time. For few days were really quite rough. Thank goodness it's all better now.

You can see his two little teeth here.
Other than that, things are going well. He is doing superbly well at the daycare. He seems to have fun there and never cries when I leave. I am so thankful for that.

Here is a video of him playing with his spoon while I was feeding him. Laetitia did exactly the same thing at that age too.

Check out the post three years ago with Laetitia's video doing the same thing!
