Our Thursday Photo #35

I’ve just sat down to write this post and looked back at last week’s Thursday photo to check what number I was up to. I can’t believe my last Thursday photo was only a week ago, we’ve had so many adventures since then.  Today, we made the most of our last full day at Bluestone. We went swimming in the Blue Lagoon then headed over to the adventure centre for soft play before lunch. After lunch, hubby took Libby to toddler sensory while Lia had a nap. Toddler sensory was just Libby’s sort of thing, playing with gym equipment and…

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…

The #illRideWithYou hashtag that has been trending over the past few days is a great example. On Monday, I took Libby to a singing group that we…

Our Thursday Photo #30

Where have the last 30 weeks gone, answer me that?? And while you’re at it, how is it that child number two, at 30 weeks old is still keeping me awake for most of the night when child number one slept through from eight weeks old? Answers on a postcard please. If you could possibly include a sleep potion with your postcard I would be most grateful, thank you so much. In other news, we are still kicking the sorry arse out of Christmas. Two visits to Father Christmas last week, although one of them happened to be female. Either…

Our Thursday Photo #28

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…
