This week has seen Maxwell learn a new trick. Maxwell's new trick involves him balancing objects on his head. Maxwell has learnt to walk and stand still whilst balancing things on his head and I have to say he is always extremely proud that he has learnt this new trick.

Since we have moved we have been very lucky to have a lot of parks around where we live, including one at the bottom of our road. There are so many parks around where we live, there is actually a map that you can follow to visit them. One day I may take Maxwell park crawling. Maxwell loves going to visit them and he is now a huge fan of the slide. He also enjoys climbing and going on the see saws. 

When we moved to our new house, I was very much scared that Maxwell would stop sleeping well. I thought that he may be able to sense we were downstairs and that he was upstairs and he would not like it, however I have been pleasantly surprised. Every night at 7pm Maxwell knows it is bedtime, lights are off and he has gone straight to sleep. Maxwell has not made a fuss and has been good as gold. In a few weeks time we are looking to move Maxwell from his cot to a toddler bed. I will keep you updated in how the transformation goes.

Maxwell's speech is slowly getting there, if you are a regular reader of my blog you know Maxwell is a little slow at speaking. Maxwell now talks to himself and us all day in his own language however the words are still barely recognisable. Recently Maxwell has been enjoying talking to his Nanny on the phone and loves listening to what she has been up to. Often he gets me to ring her up just so he can listen to her. Maxwell can now say Digger, Train, Tree and cake. 

This weekend is very special, not only is it Easter, but it is Ben's birthday. We have lots of plans and we are looking forward to going for meals out, shopping and eating lots of cake and sweets. Maxwell will enjoy a Haribo hunt on Sunday as well as get a few special treats. We are really looking forward to our weekend and we are hoping the weather stays nice.

  2. Well done him for sleeping, my youngest is two and a half and still a pickle at bedtime! Bit of a shock after two good sleepers!

  3. My son didn't speak until he was two. He will come on Helen, it's difficult but try not to worry about it.

    I am glad you have settled into your new house, and that Maxwell seems settled too.

    Hope Ben has a great birthday this weekend :)
