Flashback Friday - Leo's first holiday!

A couple of weeks ago for Flashback Friday I was looking back to our days spent messing about on the canal. Although my favourite times were in the pre baby, drinking all night days we had a surprisingly good 10 days aboard with a 5 month old Leo for his very first holiday.


I was a little worried about how we would get on, especially as there were usually at least 3 of us on board making it much easier to work the locks, I was concerned about reaching a lock at feed time and if would would be able to cope with just the two of us.  It turned out to be just fine, in fact it was very good for us and him as he slept through the night for the first time ( and carried on when we got home) and was left to his own devices a little more than usual where we were so busy.

It was going so well...

This was the first and only time we used Leo's baby carrier, aside the fact that I had a bad back and Aaron has a dodgy shoulder and Leo has always been heavy just after this photo was taken we were put off using it for life....

It should have been a great idea, Leo fell asleep straight away leaving me free to get off to operate the locks without Aaron having to worry if he cried. (something I think we worried about far too much - it's not like he could have gone anywhere!) as while he couldn't get him while he was driving, however Aaron soon realised there was a rather unpleasant smell wafting up right in front of him.

Yep, it was nappy change time and I think the most unpleasant one to date! Not only that but due to the sling it was everywhere it could possibly be, the worst nappy incident that ever happened!


It was a very well timed holiday as it would be a total nightmare now he is walking, but I hope one day when he is old enough to understand and join in with everything that we will go again.

  1. Some great memories there - brilliant when they sleep through and continue to do so.  Not so great memories with the nappy disaster though ;)
