Its been really sunny here these last few days – summer has definitely arrived! And I couldn’t help but take this photo while I was on my way to the doctors with Benedict. Beautiful!

Our weekend trip to Kiddicare! We’re going on holiday with some friends to Germany in July so we wanted to get a travel highchair and travel cot. But with Benedict waking up so early in the morning, we had a lot of time to spare waiting for Kiddicare to actually open, so B happily occupied himself in the driving seat!

I had to include this photo too! Benedict’s play date with Isla on our balcony. They really are very sweet together.

I know I’ve already posted this video this week… But this is possibly one of the funniest things ever – the McCarthy war-dance! It really makes me laugh.

This sums up cleaning in our home – clothes drying in the bathroom and Benedict sitting on the cable stopping me from getting anywhere with the hoover! He is absolutely fascinated by it and won’t take his eyes off it, I think it’s in case it comes to catch him! But when he isn’t sitting on the cable, he would easily let me hoover for hours he’s that fascinated by it. So there’s no excuse for not doing the vacuuming!

The McCarthy War-Dance

This is so funny. It is one morning, still quite early, and yet both of them are full of life and energy! It makes me laugh every time I watch it, and the timing is impeccable; as if they have rehearsed it. I love these two!

A roof over your head…


Eoin has developed an obsession with putting everything on Benedict’s head… Bibs, bubbles, building blocks, trousers, santa hats, glasses, muslin, muslin with glasses, nappies, pants, roofs, and theatre hats…

I couldn’t help but group them all together. The poor little one!
