So this bank holiday weekend was pretty busy for us! We finally got Anjie’s ears pierced which I mentioned in a previous post, so I’m glad that is finally out of the way! Took us 19 weeks to get it done but loving the overall look.
Here’s her rocking the new look…
When we got to Claire’s there wasn’t much of a queue which was great! So they explained the procedure and got us to sign some documents (yes, I took Abby with me for backup!). Once we’d done that they put the marks on her ears and by this time Anjie knew something was up! She was tracking them with her eyes and almost made it difficult to get a good spot on her ear lobes! We had to go for the smallest ear-ring since baby’s ear lobes are so tiny! I’m a lover of white gold so went for that as well! Two ladies did the piercing simultaneously on both ears and it was so fast! Daddy held her and she was looking at me, stunned! She screamed for a few seconds and that was it, bless her! My baby girl is a strong girl! :-). Same way she handled her first cold which is as good as gone now, thank God!
All this happened on Saturday and then Monday was moving out day! We know too many family friends with toddlers still sleeping in the same room with the parents so we always said we would move Anjie to her room soon as we were all comfortable with it! So that day came yesterday!
Thanks to our baby monitor it was a lot easier than expected for all parties involved! Sure she woke up twice for a feed (Noooooooooooo) and another few times for the dummy AND refused to go back to sleep after 6am when she joined me in bed; but overall Hubby and I both have our room back and don’t have to whisper for fear of waking up madam any more! I think of it as all part of her gaining her independence! :-). Next milestone, weaning…
So what was everyone up to on the bank holiday and how do you feel about baby’s having their own rooms? When did yours move? Any other tips we should know about?
Thanks and have a great week!
