The first week of back to school was last week and we made it! It’s going to take some getting used to this routine, but I believe we’re in a good place. It also helps that I only have to go to work Monday mornings for now, so means I can get the hang of things pretty well before I increase my hours and officially resume next month!
This morning has been a bit emotional for me…
My little girl started pre-school nursery today! I know she been going to nursery since she was about 7 months but this is different, today she wore a school uniform… I had to hold back the tears.
My little boy also went to nursery today – for a full day session…
And to crown it all up, I went to work as part of my Keeping in Touch (KIT) (half) days.
It really has been one of those mornings, I’m ready to crawl back into bed and hide under the cover for the rest of the day! (more…)
And finally, I had a niece, thanks to my brother, Dipo and his lovely wife Tomi! I was starting to worry that Aj might be the only girl from my side of the family, but thankfully that has all changed now! I pray she is the first of many more to come too… (more…)
My little man is 6 months old today! He is such a cheeky little man and can’t believe how much I love him to bits! It’s true what they say about the heart expanding when one has more kids! You don’t love one any less than the other… It’s truly amazing!
Junior has started weaning! I haven’t been looking forward to this at all (I also dread potty training)! It is so messy and these babies are so unpredictable! I’ve promised myself I won’t put too much pressure on myself and will let the little man take the lead so we’ll see how that pans out…
Well, almost! Can’t believe Junior will be 5 months next week!
My maternity leave is slowly coming to an end… Mixed feelings really. I miss going to work (not that I’m a morning person though), tasking my brain and knowing that I’m working towards taking my career to the next level, that’s exciting for me so I’m looking forward to that! But also knowing that very soon my baby boy will be crawling and running everywhere and my cuddle time will be slashed in half… well, I don’t want to think about it!
Anyway, what has been going on here? For one thing, my folks are in town!!! Yipppeeeeee!
When I had my maternity photoshoot I signed up for two sessions, a before and after session if you like. We were supposed to have those really early baby shoots where the baby is asleep and placed in all kind of crazy cute sleeping positions but what with family, colic and baby rash it got pushed to the back seat. 4 months later we finally got around to baby shoot and the pictures are well worth it!
It’s really going to be hard to decide which will be enlarged in the near future! But here are some of my favourites from the day!
Junior turns 12 weeks this week and I feel I need to just get it out there, I am truly thankful for having a good baby. I feel it’s only right I should say this now so that if my sweet baby changes overnight I can look back on happy posts like this and know I had it good at one time and hopefully I’d see such days again! 🙂 (more…)
Junior turned two months over the weekend and I’m thankful to say we seem to be coming to the end of the battle with colic! Now I just pray it stays that way! But now we have another battle on our hands, an old adversary – baby rash or very dry skin :(. Just when I thought we had avoided it! (more…)
A lot has been going on around here, the major one being colic… The dreaded colic attack!
Aj never had colic so I only heard about it but never really experienced it, thankfully I had been warned! Based on the little I’ve seen with it, I have to agree, colic is not a nice thing for a child to go through…
