Sherlock hadn’t realised I was filming :)

Now, these two are old friends from the military, I kept in touch with them and me and Sherlock went on a date one evening and left them to babysit, I don’t know why, when we were out in Afghanistan their nicknames were Tweedledum and Tweedledee… they were okay, but the house was a state when we got back! And they’d had to come and get us (this is a picture Mycroft got us from a security camera) because Hamish was having some separation anxiety.

This is Murray, the man who saved me out in Afghanistan when I got shot. He’s really good with kids! So he was a good babysitter! He actually has a little kid of his own now!

This is me filming John, Hamish, and a girl Hamish had befriended while we went to America for a case. (Hamish is the boy in the hat).

And here is some more footage I’ve taken of Hamish and John!

John and I were also invited to Hamish’s school for a day, something to do with getting parents involved in their child’s learning. I took some videos during the PE class!

And that’s all you’re getting. -SH

Here are some baby photos of Hamish!

Sherlock bought a really nice camera just before Hamish was born and one day we were quite bored so we converted our bedroom into a photoshoot place. We stripped our bed so it was just the plain white mattress and that’s what Hamish is lying on. And then we dressed him in some of his cute little clothes. He was quite happy with it all, very entertained because Sherlock and I were going through wardrobes and also dressing in some rather silly outfits.

He did fall asleep in the afternoon though and there we got some cute snooze-shots.

He’s very adorable, don’t you think? -JW

Hamish, what did you do for Father's Day the other week?

We all spent the day together! It was very, very fun!!!

I set my alarm clock for six o’clock in the morning so we had lots of time together, I grabbed their presents and cards and ran downstairs and into their room and jumped on their bed until they woke up!

Daddy was first to get up and he brought me a cup of warm milk and he and papa had some tea. I gave daddy and papa a hug and gave the baby a kiss (I always give the baby a kiss good morning and good night!) -HWH

It is very adorable! Hamish loves feeling the baby kicking and presses a kiss on my belly.

Yeah, and anyway! They opened the presents I got them, daddy helped me buy papa’s, and papa helped me buy daddy’s! I got daddy a new jumper and a new tea mug and his favourite tea! And I also got him a new rugby ball for us to play with! And I got papa a book and also some of his favourite snacks, like milk chocolate! And I got him a new tea mug to match daddy’s! And I got him a box-set of science documentary things that we can watch together.

Then I gave them the cards I made them! And after that we got ready for the day and we went to the park, daddy and I played rugby and then papa and I looked at some bugs and we documented them and we had a really nice day out! 

And then I helped them make dinner and in the evening we all watched Monsters Inc!

We had a really nice day! -HWH

How's everyone?

We’re fine, thank you!

Hamish is doing really well at school, particularly in PE, they’re doing rugby at the moment and he’s loving it!

Amelia is still as adorable and beautiful as ever, and growing more every day! I still can’t believe she’s nearly three months old!

Sherlock and I are a little tired but happy. We still haven’t taken any cases except ones we can work from home to complete. Amelia’s keeping us up a lot at night with feeding and changing and generally crying. Hamish luckily sleeps through as he’s moved back up to his old room to sleep and doesn’t hear her.

But it’s all good, thank you for asking! -JW

anonymous said:

Have you guys played an interesting games lately? ;) R.M.

Hamish found the box for cluedo stashed in the airing cupboard and insisted we played it… it didn’t end well…

image

It turns out, the only thing worse than Sherlock playing cluedo, is Sherlock playing cluedo while pregnant.

Let me just tell you that even Gladstone couldn’t have destroyed that board quicker than Sherlock did. -JW

anonymous said:

Hamish, do you like your papa jumpers? (:

Well, papa doesn’t wear jumpers except when he steals daddy’s. But I presume you mean do I like daddy’s jumpers?

Well, they’re very warm and comfy for when I want a cuddle, and one time when daddy and papa took me to a crime scene I lost my coat and it was cold so daddy gave me his jumper and it was too big for me but it was very warm and snugly, and it smelt nice too-like tea and biscuits! -HWH

anonymous said:

Do you like trains?

Yes! -HWH

One of Hamish’s favourite programmes when he was 2 was Thomas the Tank Engine.

image

He had Thomas the Tank Engine socks, and a t-shirt, and a train set and even a poster on his wall! It was very adorable.

I myself do not have much interest in trains, though I do think they are a decent method of transport.

We took Hamish on a train when he was going through his Thomas the Tank Engine phase, he loved it! He kept wanting to get up and walk down the aisle and John had to run after him. And I had him stood on my lap watching out the window! He was chattering away for the entire journey and giggling when the people would blow whistles and things! -SH

anonymous said:

What are your favourite things about the children?

Just them as people, they’re both wonderful little beings. 

Hamish is a very loving and cheerful boy! Very clever too. He can be demanding but we wouldn’t have him any other way, he’s our perfect little boy.

And Amelia is so cute! She’s already such a little character, throwing up on Mycroft and being all cuddly and such a cutie-pie!

We love them both so much, there are so many things about them that could be favourite characteristics! -JW

I agree with John.

We are very, very, very proud to announce the birth of our second child!

May we introduce you to Amelia Watson-Holmes, she was born on the tenth of August at 11.53 in the evening, and she is the most adorable and gorgeous girl in the whole world!

She has a very loud cry already, Hamish adores her, absolutely adores his little sister, he’s had lots of cuddles with her, as have we all! We’ve just come home this morning, Sherlock managed to persuade the hospital to let him go as soon as possible, despite the healing c-section, but I’m a doctor, I can handle it. He’s doing well, and he did magnificently while giving birth to Amelia.

Our askbox is now open once more!

Thank you, -JW

anonymous said:

After Hamish was born, how long did you all spend in the hospital? What was that first night/day like for the three of you?

A couple of days. Sherlock had to be kept an eye on as he had a c-section.

Well, the first night we all lay on the bed together, Sherlock and I, and we had Hamish in Sherlock’s arms, or my arms, we alternated. Hamish cried a few times but mostly he slept and drank and we just watched him through the whole night, Sherlock fell asleep for a while and I held Hamish then, but we just both couldn’t stop watching him!

And the first day was interesting. The day is always busier than the night, and Hamish just did quite the same as the night before, crying and drinking and sleeping and we put him in the cot to sleep for a bit but Sherlock persuaded me to get him out because he said he “missed him”, which sounds crazy because Hamish was right there, but I understood. We wanted him with us, in our arms. And that ended up with Hamish in tears because we woke him up.

Ohh and over that night and day Sherlock and I got to grips with nappies which was interesting and strange but it has to be done.

We were just in awe of Hamish. I mean he was there, he was actually a little person and he made noise and wiggled and slept and drank and did things and it was just… wow.

We were a little nervous too, hoping we could cope with it all once we were home, but we were fine. -JW
