Days like this I turn into a crazy person

I'm standing at my kitchen window staring out at the beautiful snow, wishing I could have been out in it and conscious that I am at the furthest point in the house from Seth without actually going outside.

Some days Seth will happily sit and play with me and be full of giggles. Other days he just wants space to chill. But today was one of those other types of days when he doesn't want to do anything. He will protest as soon as you put a toy or book in front of him, if I try a cuddle he will wriggle off my lap onto his feet but then collapses and won't take his weight and stand straight. If I leave him on the floor he bangs his head on the floor and if he falls asleep he wakes up screaming.

I did insist on us going out into the garden. I wrapped Seth in 3 layers, put on his wellies, waterproof trousers and coat, hat and gloves. He enjoyed bouncing and crunching snow for a whole 5 minutes before wanting to be picked up. I considered my options before just going back indoors. He did look very cute though

Well the weather this weekend has stopped all my social plans which is very annoying and caused me to spend 2 hours driving what should have been a 20 minute journey to pick Seth up from school which really sucked. However, it is very pretty!

We are well and truly settled in; today I hung the last curtains and it's very cosy. Seth has his bedroom and his own shower room downstairs. Although my first attempts at showering ended not only in disaster but seems to have given him a phobia of the sound of running water because Seth now starts screaming when we run his bath. So I've really messed that up. I think I'll wait til the weather gets warmer before trying again. On the bright side its shown me that Seth recognises things very quickly, given the way he reacted to the shower the 2nd time I tried to put him in it!
