Maybe Baby

We had a slight break through last night. P2 had her last nap at about 6-7:30pm. We then managed to keep her awake until 10:30. Where she had her feed and I put her down awake with the mobile playing. She didn’t go to sleep straight away, I had to pick her up and give her a bit of a …

Oh Man!!!!!!

Seriously, I’m exhausted. Quick post this morning. P2 just would not settle in her cot last night. She’s done so well up until then. She woke up so many times I felt like a yoyo. I persevered three times but when the fourth arrived and they’d all been within about 3hours of me going to bed, I gave up. I …

This Is The Life

We tried out a different play centre today. The Fun Factory. It has an indoor ice rink, indoor climbing wall, soft play for ages 0-13yrs and a sensory room. I’m still debating as to whether its better than our usual choice of play. I love that it has more of a variety for the children. I love the sensory option …

First Tastes, Highchair Needed Soon?!

This morning we gave P2 her first taste of something other than milk. She’s 18 weeks old, a little early than the newly recommended 26weeks, but considering I weaned P1 at 4 months I’m quite confident that having a little munch on something wouldn’t harm her. P2 was allowed to try a rusk. She absolutely loved it! Her gums munched …

Little Bird Told Me – Papa Bear Review

I was approached by Little Bird Told Me recently to review a product for them. They gave me the choice of many beautiful toys. Luckily, I’m already a huge fan of their products and we have the Mama Bear and Activity Spiral, I really wanted to review the Birdy Bear Activity Toy but my OH persuaded me to get Papa …

Zombie State Of Living

As P2 grows in herself, her sleep pattern seems to deteriorate. Drastically. I’m feeling the most sleep deprived I have the whole 17 weeks and 6 days of her existence in the real world. I don’t even think she’s solely to blame. She didn’t used to fall asleep for the night until 10:30pm, but now she falls asleep somewhere between …

Fancy Dress Party

P1s God-Mother (aka in my blog as GM) celebrated her birthday with all her friends by holding a Film Character themed fancy dress party last night. Getting my costume was very last minute, my OH wore his work suit, P1 her favourite dress up and P2 in her bunny sleep suit… We all had a lovely time. It was actually …

V.I.M – Very Important Mummy’s

I hate being judged. Every single day I get judged. The main reason is because I’m a young parent. I can’t even hide away from being a younger parent because I’m 140cm tall (4ft 7in ish). My local children’s centre run several groups/sessions each day, all week and I’ve been to the Breastfeeding Group twice. On the first time a …

Proud Mummy Moment – Nearly Rolling

It was only yesterday that I was moaning to the breast feeding support lady about how many babies P2s age were really chatty and some rolling over but P2 wasn’t. Now today, we have a screeching, squealing and very chatty little lady who has spent a good hour flipping her hips over and has even managed to get on to …

Co-Sleeping In The News

My Twitter and Facebook have gone absolutely crazy about co-sleeping. The news has come out with yet another report about it. I feel quite angry about it all – there’s so many different views on co-sleeping and parenting that it’s hard to know what you’re meant to do with your baby. I co-sleep. Not all the time, but more often than not. …

Sweet Dreams

((Quick reminder that I am on Twitter and also on Facebook so getting following/liking)) Since having P2 I’ve posted about how she only poops every few days. Well today was that day. When she has her clear out it’s always quite a mess. When wearing disposables it would leak out of her nappy in all directions, onto her vest and …

The Day From Hell … Is It Over Yet?

Don’t let that cute little face fool you. P2 has officially been a nightmare! A loveable nightmare but a nightmare all the same. The past few days have been a struggle with her. I’ve got to reform some sort of routine because she’s completely changed the way she runs things. Her night time has changed from 10pm to sometimes earlier …

That First Giggle

I cannot believe it. For weeks I’ve been trying to get P2 to laugh. Pulling so many faces, getting my voice to places I never knew it could reach and generally being rather silly – now they weren’t failures, she smiles at me constantly. I sneezed. She giggled. Yup, an accidental sneeze as I was clearing up the biggest, leakiest …

Sorry, One Of Those 4am Mum Moments

Well the birds are tweeting, I don’t think I’ve ever heard birds in this house?!, and I’ve just been woken up by P2. So?! What makes this unusual, special even, is that P2 went to sleep early last night. My OH went to the gym, P1 was in bed and my parents also went to bed early. Leaving just P2 …
