So What Have We Been Up To??

Well we've just enjoyed a couple of nice and quiet weeks after what seemed like a couple of frenzied weeks of activity before that.I spent my first night away from Sorley which was 2 full days and 1 night, and guess what - he and daddy survived! I was at a poetry festival in St. Andrews which I blogged about in my other blog here.

We were also invited to a wedding held in St. Conan's Kirk, a beautiful church on the banks of Loch Awe
The reception was in Ardanaiseig Hotel which is also on the banks of Loch Awe and where we spent the night, a beautiful place and the bed was big enough for Sorley to sleep comfortably long-ways between me and daddy.
This is Sorley in his kilt outfit for the wedding - ok I know the slippers don't match!

Some pics of my mischievous boy, pulling mummy's wardrobe to bits
Don't think this picture needs any explanation
look who's worked out how to climb onto the windowsill
who needs toys when you've got the good old pots and pans
sometimes he'll climb into his pram for a wee rest

So what's new with Sorley - he completely has his own little language now, it feels like he understands everything I'm saying so I have to be more careful what I say in front of him. He likes provoking me to reaction, I can't leave any shoes lying about or else he'll pick them up and lick their soles to see me shriek in horror. He sings along to most things, the hoover, the beeping of the 6 o'clock news - I mean everything!
My dog has turned into a neurotic mess because of all the noise Sorley manages to make out of anything.
Mostly it's been raining lately so we've not been out much but today was gorgeous so we had a picnic on the promenade, Sorley walked for a good while along the promenade then we went to the swing park where he found some 6 and 7 year old girls who adored him and played with him.
He loves meeting other kids, in fact he loves meeting anyone and is a right wee entertainer, not in the least bit shy. He also loves giving little girls kisses!!

WOW! You sure packed a lot into this post...

I LOVE seeing Sorley in his kilt and matching attire. What a sturdy little man he is! You had better watch out or one of those older girls is going to steal your wee man away!!!!

What an exciting past few weeks for you and your family. How wonderful that Dad and Sorley survived their time together without you!

The photo with the tissues made me giggle....that is SO typical of the *male*!!!

What a lovely set of photos. You are certainly having so much fun!

Sorley reminds me of everything I got into to "investigate" with the exception of the kilt. What outstanding architecture of the church!
