Teething

Aj’s Dentist Appointment finally happened

Last week was the dreaded week which finally came and went…

Aj finally went to the dentist to get her teeth done after discovering she had two cavities in her teeth. It went better than I expected, my daughter was strong, bless her, but it still hurt a bit…

8 Months old Check-up & Back to Work!

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?

Biting – Let the ‘Training’ begin

Now there’s this bad habit Anjie has picked up, among others of course, but this one just takes the cake – Biting! Now if she did this to just us, it wouldn’t be okay, but we could live with it, but noooo, she has to do it to the other kids in her nursery too! Now that is just plan wrong…

Goodbye to the Dummy – 10 Month

So this week aside from Anjie walking, we’ve decided to say good-bye to the dummy, even though it was a lifesaver. The nights haven’t been easy but we’re getting there… As much as I loved the dummy I’ve always had this fear at the back of my mind that she would get too attached to it if we left it too late, heard too many horror stories really! Overall she took it quite well, not missing it at all but she’s been waking up quite a bit at night looking for food! Do babies still have growth spurts at this age? Or could she just be getting more teeth?

She’s got 4 now, so cute! (I have to say it was a real struggle getting her to show the top teeth! But the bottom two are always easy…)

9 months and Being a Working Mum

Anjie turns 9 months today! Yippeeee. I’ve also been back at work now for just under two months, although I haven’t quite gone full time yet (that’s in October) it’s being… Interesting. I honestly can’t say it’s been fun because it hasn’t! But thankfully it gets better and easier everyday.

Off to the Theme Park and Zoo

On Wednesday we went to the zoo! Flamingo Land Theme Park and Zoo to be precise! it’s in Malton, North Yorkshire and a lot closer than I thought being just over an hour. Anjie, Grandma, Hubby and I got in the car in the morning and arrived to spend what was left of the British summer. Had a lovely time, even though the little missy slept through most of the outing 🙂
