Let the biting begin! And what else?

Just when I thought my darling was a proper sweetheart and would never do anything to harm her mama she bites me! I know a lot of people would say I’ve been luck thus far in my breastfeeding journey, but still! And my goodness did it hurt! Did I mention she has teeth? Oh the pain…

7 months old and Counting down…

So Anjie turned 7 months a few days ago! She’s literally growing right before our very eyes! And I’ll be back at work next month… Time goes by when you’re have fun…

This past week or so has been pretty busy for us as we’ve got some in-laws in town, including 14 month old twins! My goodness! Twins are HARD work! Bless them… I hope to put up some pictures later on but for now just thought I’ll write a quick post!

How are we Crawling, Standing and Sleeping…?

It’s official, Anjie is crawling!!! And is she stopping there?? Nooooo, she’s using everything in her path to stand up now! I’m talking my legs, her daddy, her cot, chairs, sofas and heck, even the radiators (quite worrying I tell you)! It’s so lovely to see and I’m so proud of her! And she’s so fast too! I wasn’t expecting her to do much of these things until like 8-9 months! But believe me, I’m glad!

These achievements remind me of the Pampers commercial which shows babys’ climbing chairs with Coldplay’s Viva la Vida playing as a soundtrack. Their smiles at the end their climbs were soo proud and happy! That’s the smile Anjie has when she stands up and I just can’t get enough of it… An example being this picture! Very cheeky! Especially since she was supposed to be asleep!

16 week Immunisation and finding a Nursery/Daycare/Childminder

16 weeks and it’s that special time again for the dreaded vaccines… This month she had 3!!! But thankfully she took it well, crying for a few seconds and then was okay. Next thing I knew, she was asleep like this! Bless her…

This is her third set, had one at 8 weeks and 12 weeks; thankfully the next one would be when she turns a year old or so. Also with this vaccine it means we are closer to getting her ears pierced

36 weeks – Busy busy Week it was!

Wow!! 36 weeks!!! This week has been pretty busy and so much has been going on! Where do I start?!

First of all, my parent are in town! All the way from Warri, Nigeria! They got in last weekend and have been at my brother’s place all week. He just graduated with a Doctorate in Human Computer Interaction! How awesome is that? So a big short out to my big bro for setting such amazing standards for his siblings to follow!

So hubby and I went over to Middlesborough for the graduation ceremony, which is just about 1.5hrs from Leeds. After the ceremony we went on to Newcastle and came back the next morning. Fortunately, we took a half day Wednesday and Thursday so didn’t have to rush back into work Thursday morning.

Week 34 – Midwife Appointment and 2 weeks to go

First off, today’s the 11th day of the 11th month of 2011. Making it 11-11-11. As much as this is all well and good I’m not quite sure what the big deal is… All I know is it is another day to be thankful for and means we are getting closer to the 18th of December :-)

27 weeks – So far so good

Week 27 Yippeeee!!!

Funny enough nothing major has really happened this week. Can’t wait to get to the 28 week point so I can proudly say I’m in my third trimester! So got a week to get there!

My little one has definitely been getting more active though, I can tell you that! And there I was thinking she’s quiet like me, boy was I wrong! She’s more like her daddy!! And she’s also starting to recognise her dad’s voice as well! All he has to know is talk to her and she gets all excited and does somersaults! I kid you not! Quite annoying though considering she doesn’t do that for me! Hmmmmmm I’m already seeing a pattern here…

26 weeks and starting to feel the pressure!

So I turned 26 weeks on Sunday and it’s been one hectic day after the other! Heck it’s been soo bad that I’ve got twitching eye brows!!! After much research and analysis I’ve discovered this happens to me when I’m going through stress! Go figure…

My boss is away for a few weeks at work so it seems I suddenly have a lot more work on my hands! Thankfully he’ll be back next week so that should be sorting itself out very soon, thank God!
