Today we got the election results. We went to apply for the children's passports and were advised to return again with more paper work. Harriet was still not napping or sleeping well, we may have broken her. Did I boast that it was easy the second time round?
Today was elections day. Harriet was still napping and sleeping badly. I lost my cool with Owen when he had a meltdown while we were bathing Harriet. Everything's much harder when you're tired!
Today Harriet was still sleeping and napping badly. Poor us. It's been cold and wet as well, the heating was even on!
Today baby Harriet had been sleeping badly in the night again, wanting to feed every hour, and so I moved her back to sleep in our bed as I didn't want to keep getting up.
Today for the first time, Harriet slept for 5hrs without feeding in the night. I was still exhausted all day though, from housework and playing with Owen, and accumulated tiredness from the past week. Owen came up to me and told me he loved me, which made it worthwhile.
Today Alice and Simon came to ours for lunch. Owen was very friendly and we had a great time. In the evening I heard Harriet laugh for the first time.
Today Harriet woke up at a decent time and we managed to go to the shops and back before noon! We even managed to get some breakfast outside. I spent a lot of time playing with Owen and he was very happy.
Today we took the children via train to watch Room On The Broom at Oxford Playhouse. In the evening Peter discovered some magic to get Harriet to stay asleep.
Today Harriet hardly napped at all. And at night she woke me up every 30mins to an hour and took ages to get back to sleep. I was exhausted!
Today I took Harriet to get her immunisation. She was having difficulties napping and we both ended up dozing on the sofa for 3 hours.
Today we drove back home again from the long weekend at grandparents' house. Owen was very good and helped me bathe baby Harriet in the evening.
Today we had some peace and quiet at last. Owen was happier and in the night I finally got baby Harriet to sleep in her own bed instead of co-sleeping with me.
Today Harriet napped like a dream in the attic at grandparents' house away from the noisy preschoolers. There was a lot of cousins shrieking going on downstairs that drove me mad too.
Today we packed and drove to grandparents' house with Owen being distracting and annoying like one of those 'are we there yet' children.
Today I was 10 mins late to see the nurse for Harriet 's immunisation due to baby faffing , and was told I had to reschedule. I was tired from the bad night, hot and bothered by the weather, and was fuming about the wasted trip. Afterwards Harriet did not nap.
Today it was too warm. Owen fell backwards out of our patio doors onto the patio and hurt his head. Why is he so accident prone? In the evening baby Harriet wouldn't sleep till 2:30am.
Today we met up with NCT friends at Blenheim Palace for picnic after Owen finished preschool and he had a great time playing hide-and-seek with Rose.
Today Owen came home early from preschool as he had tripped and bashed his nose, and was bleeding a lot and feeling shaken.
Today we stayed home all day and finally had our BBQ! It was rather hectic trying to juggle that with a demanding preschooler and an overtired baby, but we did it.
Today we went to Blenheim Palace in the afternoon. In the evening, we tried and failed to light the fire on our BBQ.
