I’m a little behind folks but I’ve still been taking pics!! We have been on our first holiday abroad and it was amazing! Louis actually came back a different boy. Yes a boy! He’s growing into a little boy ;( Above he’s playing with his Poppa.

He was fab on the flight. We have this awesome Babyzen Yoyo stroller which you can actually take on as hand luggage and it was definitely worthy the pennies. IT folds up teeny weeny and I use it loads back in the UK too, simply to have some room in my boot without the big buggy and it whizzes around the shops and things. It was dead easy getting through to board. I had no idea what would happen with all the milk etc but it goes through special machine and ta da! All went really smoothly. I held off giving little man his milk until we took off so it would help his ears and then let him suck on his dummy. He fell straight to sleep for the first hour on me.

We were also very lucky as no one took the middle seat so after the sat belt sign went off we just popped him on there and he was as happy as Larry. However I think a 2.5 hour journey was just perfect. Not sure he would have lasted much longer.

We stayed in a beautiful place in Portugal near Porches, we go every year so it’s like home from home. The Galt Play ring really helped for the first few days. Before he learnt how to get out of it!! Louis also got nicknamed ‘Tic Tac’ because if you look really closely he’s got  the biggest tooth at the front. It made me chuckle.

He absolutely loved the water and playing with his big cousin Arnie. He would keep him entertained for hours. He was just mesmerised by him. We are just so lucky to have all the family together including his other Uncle Jack and girlfriend Cristie, who never normal make it out as they work on super yachts.

Now I’m really sorry guys but I’m going to be doing a few of these blogs this week so I can catch up. I don’t want to miss a second of him growing up and remembering what he did each week. He’s still rocking back and forth at this point and so nearly there. It literally was only a matter of days before life changed again! more to follow of our Portugal trip.

I hope you like Week 12.

Lots of love
