Our Thursday Photo #34

Happy New Year!  We started this year in the best possible way, putting Lia to bed at around 8 pm yesterday and not getting her up until 7.40 am today. This is the third time she has effectively slept through the night, but the first time she hasn’t been awake at 5 or 6 am for a feed.  We decided to go to the cinema this morning to see Paddington. We enjoyed the film and Lia behaved immaculately throughout. Libby on the other hand couldn’t bring herself to sit still and ended up dropping her popcorn on the floor. This…

Eek!! First post on my new blog! As you can see, all of my old posts have moved across, but they’re not looking wonderful. I’ve moved to my own website because in many ways Blogger was getting a little restrictive – a lot to do with user error I’m sure! So, here we are, all shiny and new! At long last, I can finally say that Lia is slowly getting a little better with her sleeping at night. She is still waking up, but it’s once or twice rather than numerous occasions. She is also getting into a slightly better…
