So Jj had his first sleep over at our house last weekend. It was different because it was just him, without his folks! His mum (my sister) said he’ll be fine as he’s done it before, but I was a little nervous as this was technically my first time of having a child stay over without their mum or dad so I was definitely curious to see how it would pan out. Obviously, it helps that the kids both love each other to bits and JJ is just a few months younger than Aj so they’re almost twins!
My little man turned 13 months last week! Wow!
Since he started walking it’s like there’s no stopping him! He is into everything and already knows how to throw a tantrum! My goodness, when he doesn’t get what he wants! I don’t know where I got kids which such a temper from! It isn’t me, honest!!
Oh my goodness! Where has the year gone! In a few weeks it’ll be Christmas but before that, my beautiful daughter’s birthday! Can’t believe Aj will be FOUR next week!! Noooo! I’m not ready yet! It crazy how this year went by, having a baby really does that to you!
So what has been going on in our lives?
My little man turned 8 months this week! What an amazing journey it’s been getting to this stage!
I definitely have to say motherhood has been a lot
easier better this second time around – breastfeeding for one was smoother, weaning is going better and I guess I’m just more relaxed as a mother. I pray I haven’t jinxed things now!
Junior is still a serious little man, chilled out and not fussed at all, except at night or when he isn’t getting what he wants. We still have to work for the smiles but when they come it melts my heart every time!
So what has 8 months brought about?
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!
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…)
Where do I start! I can’t believe Junior is a month old already! Don’t get me wrong, I have counted each and every single day yet here we are at one month already! It’s been quite the ride, can’t say I’ve enjoyed every single bit of it but it’s been worth it. But I have to say that this young man deceived me! He has changed from his 10 day old self…
We had his naming ceremony last week and he came out with 14 names as is tradition! Aj had about the same so it’s no surprise! Since he was named after his grandpa AND he came out looking a lot like his daddy I’ve decided to name him Junior on my blog! So that’s where the name ‘Junior’ comes from… We’ll see if he grows up looking like his dad though!
