i.e. since William was born!!!!
We have been busy bees, painting, architraves, skirting….
James’ parents have been amazing and have done soooooo much painting and James and his Dad have done all the woodwork upstairs!!! Its nearly at the point of having carpets put in upstairs and painting started downstairs!!!!
So in Photo Format!!!
Phew thats a lot of photos!!
One last one!!
A cheeky chops in just a nappy in his chair!!! Too hot for clothes that day!!!
Things are moving along well at the holding so much so that I thought I shoud get a wriggle on and start thinking about making the curtains especially since cheeky chops needs most of my attention these days!!
Sooo Jennie of Owl About Yarn and I went over to fabricworld the other week and this is what I picked up!!
So we have teal flowers for the master bedrom, purple plain and purple and pink flowers for the lounge, animals for Cheeky Chops’ room!!
Well for those of you that don’t follow me on any other social media, here is the little reason for my absence from blogging for the last two months!!
William was born way back in April….. 10 days late, after I had had to stay in hospital being induced for four days!!!! Upon our arrival at hospital he turned…. Having previously been in perfect position for delivery he swivelled back to back and then decided to come out face first, oh yes and he poohed before he “left the building” so he was born with green hair!!!!
He is gradually getting the hang of sleeping… he most definitely has the hang of feeding having gained 3 pounds in six weeks…. He has started water babies swimming…. He has met family members…. He has visited the farm a lot….. He loves his music, particularly Ed Sheeran and has basically rocked his Dad’s and my world in so many amazing ways!!!
It’s tough on times, even harder initially when you feel like crap, have stitches on stitches or so it feels like because you can’t sit straight, and you are leaking left right and centre. Sleep deprivation is a b***h, purple lansinoh cream is a life saver when it feels like he is using broken glass to hack off my nipples, colic is hideous, but ameliorated by an elevated Moses basket/gripe water/carbo veg and Colitwinkles!!! (The last two being homeopathic remedies)
BUT those smiles!!!!!
That little tigger like hoo hoo hoo laugh…..
The fact I’ve managed to breastfeed!!!!
The hilarious comedy huge burps and nappy rumbling farts!!!!
That baby smell!!!!!
Makes everything worthwhile!!
