Sunday morning at my parents, Finley had a sleepover with them on Saturday night and then spent most of the day with them. Before he started school he used to spend a whole day a week with each set of Grandparents whilst we worked. It’s nice that he still gets some quality one on one time with them with the occasional sleepover.
Finley’s started an after school on Mondays now, so Niamh and I walked the long way to pick him up. She was having an
off day a bloody horrendous day where she refused to sleep without being held, so sticking her in the pram for a walk/nap was like a freaking holiday.
Adam was off work today because he worked the weekend. We decided to give Niamh a go with baby rice. She’s just gone 4 months and although they recommend 6 months old , she’s showing all the signs that she’s ready. I think you just know when they are, I did with Finley but hesitated as a nervous first time parent. He was bloody mad for it when we did start weaning him. I’m just going to stick to plain baby rice once or twice a day for a week or so and see how she goes. If she’s loving it I’ll treat her to a banana or a parsnip soon. It’s an exotic life we lead here you know!
Post bath mega lush baby. Poor thing rarely gets one. When Finley was a baby I reckon I bathed him every other day and massaged him with fancy lotions. It’s amazing how much more time you have with the first one. This one is lucky if she has a bath once a fortnight and I don’t think a bottle of lotion or talc has got anywhere near her.
Niamh had a two hour car seat nap following the school run so I got loads of work done. I’m definitely getting back into the swing of things. I feel like I’ve got things to write about again plus the Christmas lull looks like its coming to an end as the work is starting to trickle through.
Today was supposed to be new sofa day so this photo is pre-school run, two kids no furniture. The old ones went out in the garden to be collected next week. Little did I know then that we’d actually be spending the next 24 hours like this. Honestly, trying to feed a baby on the floor kills your bloody back! Turns out the delivery was delayed due to the fisherman’s strike in Calais, naturally.
Finley had a classmates birthday party this afternoon and the sofa’s showed up whilst we were out (whoop, whoop!) – Adam and Niamh stayed home to recieve them. Here he is sucking all the icing off the cupcakes #thatsmaboy
