sleeping

Getting closer to December, Birthday and Christmas!

So we’ve been really quite busy at home… so busy I haven’t had time blog! Shame on me… Work is getting pretty busy plus we’ve had family over a bit. That’s right, Anjie has met another one of her cousins from her dad’s side! And yes, it is official, Anjie loves babies and kids. It was lovely to watch her play with her cousin Jayden, his a month younger than her though so she was doing more of the playing but it was great 🙂

How are we Crawling, Standing and Sleeping…?

It’s official, Anjie is crawling!!! And is she stopping there?? Nooooo, she’s using everything in her path to stand up now! I’m talking my legs, her daddy, her cot, chairs, sofas and heck, even the radiators (quite worrying I tell you)! It’s so lovely to see and I’m so proud of her! And she’s so fast too! I wasn’t expecting her to do much of these things until like 8-9 months! But believe me, I’m glad!

These achievements remind me of the Pampers commercial which shows babys’ climbing chairs with Coldplay’s Viva la Vida playing as a soundtrack. Their smiles at the end their climbs were soo proud and happy! That’s the smile Anjie has when she stands up and I just can’t get enough of it… An example being this picture! Very cheeky! Especially since she was supposed to be asleep!

Anjie at 16 weeks and Some Great News!

This past week as been pretty busy for me! But busy in a lovely way!

First off, my sister gave birth last week thursday to a lovely baby boy! So now you can call me Aunty Tola! We’re all so thankful because it wasn’t an easy pregnancy but God saw her through!

Also I’ve been working on a friend’s wedding website for Kenny & Voke, Voke was Abby’s best man at our wedding so it was fun doing it for them! Only wish we could be there for the wedding, but sadly can’t make it…

Anjie has been acting up a bit this past few weeks, for one thing, our routine is now a bit shaky, but on a plus she’s sleeping a bit better now, waking up just once between 7.30pm and 5.30am, which is always a good thing! I’m hoping its a growth spurt because she’s eating more during the day and sleeping less but who knows… We’ll continue to see how it goes!

Here’s Anjie at just over 15 weeks! Love the middle shot! lol…

Hope everyone had a lovely Easter and have a great week!

2 weeks old – My Mind’s playing tricks on me!

This week Anjie turned two weeks! I’m not going to say it has been fun all the way cos it hasn’t but like someone rightly put it, parenthood is hard, but then you come across those moments which make it absolutely worth it, like when she smiles in her sleep (she’s doing that now, priceless! Can’t wait for the proper smile though!)

I can’t deny the fact that the sleepless nights are getting to me. It’s worst in the early hours of the morning between 5am-7am, at that time I’m just exhausted and want to sleep! The good new is that Anjie recently picked up this pattern which I hope she sticks with for a bit. She falls asleep around 8-9pm after a major feed and sleeps till 2-2.30am! Once she sleeps like that I try to hit the bed around 10pm myself cos she’s with grandma at this time.
