Weaning

Back to blogging – What we’ve been up to!

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?

Junior Weaning at 5 months and what else is new?

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…

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…)

Off to the Movies and Weaning, again

So last weekend we went to the movies. The last movie we saw was the Avengers which was amazing, there were applauds in the cinema at the end, it was that good. So this time, with much anticipation and excitement we went to see Prometheus.

Sadly, I’ll have to give it a 5/10. Hubby and I were completely disappointed with the movie as it left so many questions unanswered and for a movie which is supposed to be a prequel to Aliens we didn’t see much of them! But hey, that’s just me! I’m not a movie critic so I’m not going to talk too much about it!

So where was Anjie in all this..?

Blowing Raspberries and Weaning so far

So this past week saw the ‘end’ of the lovely summery weather we had been having; I have to say it was really sad to see it go! It doesn’t help that this weekend is the Jubilee weekend with a double bank holiday on Monday and Tuesday (doesn’t make much of a difference to me though!)! Would have been nice to go to the park as a family and just spend sometime outdoor. Oh well maybe the sun might still come out a bit…

Soaking up the Sun while it lasts… In the Park

So this week we had unbelievably good weather here! I’m talking 22-24 degrees! After all the wet days it was pretty much heaven sent! So not wanting to miss out, Anjie and I went to the park and had a lovely time! But just when I was thinking of putting her on the swing for the first time she fell asleep! Lol… Oh well next time!

Here’s some pictures we took… The last one is my personal favourite 🙂

Anjie is Weaning and Swimming at 5 months!

Although we had a relatively quite week the weekend was busy! We decided to introduce Anjie to some baby food! Namely baby rice and banana porridge… The initial plan was to wait till she was 6 months but she’s been giving all the signs of being ready, including great head control, sitting up on her own, watching us while eating and sometimes even taking food from our plate and putting it in her mouth! So with that decide to hit the 22 week mark and start! I figured I’ll start with baby cereal once a day then gradually increase it to three times a day and bring in puree by 6 months. For now i give her the cereal after her breastmilk, that way she isn’t too hungry and cranky.

My baby’s growing up!!
