Not the best photo this week (and the same cardigan as last week!), but I really wanted to tell the story of this: Milo climbed the stairs in our flat 13 times in a row! When Dave went up to get something up the stairs before heading out for work, Milo followed him and then there was no stopping him. He just wanted to do it again and again and again. He fell over on number three, but it didn’t deter him at all. I closed the stairgate after six gos, but he kept sulking until I opened it again and just let him get on with it. We played chuck the teddy down the stairs for a bit as well, but that was really just an excuse to go down and start climbing again. He eventually got tired and started crying while climbing (although he never stopped) and let me take him away for a sit down. He was fast asleep again by 9.15.

And now another thing: there’s these blog awards for UK parent blogs, the MAD Blog awards, I wonder if you would mind nominating me? I reckon I fit the photography and craft categories, and obviously I’d be very honoured to be nominated for best blog and best blog writing! You can find out more on the MAD blog awards site. It would be aceness to receive some nominations!
