Boys’ room makeover

In preparation for the impending arrival (well, we have about 4 months to go), Sir A has been moved in with Lord B. He now sleeps through the night fairly consistently (I really must finish that draft…) and I wanted to do it as early as possible so we could get them sleeping together and … Continue reading

Sleep log 11/05/13

Well, at the time of the last boyses update I’d said that things weren’t improving and were possibly even getting worse. I was also stressed about naptimes because Sir A still seemed to need a long nap but it was very inconvenient providing it. This got even more important when Amazing Husband started working away from … Continue reading

Talking Sir A has taken to learning anything his brother can say. Like, “one more minute puff”. It’s just amazing how quickly he’s learning. Though it seems I understand a lot more than anyone else, owing to the fact that I’m with him pretty much 24/7. Today is godbrother Eli’s birthday party and the boys … Continue reading

Boyses 30/03/13 – sleeping, eating, and having a wah

Eating:  Lord B seems to have come out of a food/vege juice strike, much to my relief. For weeks he was having hardly any juice, and saying things like “I can’t drink it much faster, I’ll get sick”. No idea where he got that idea. Anyway, he’ll eat carrots and apples as is but I … Continue reading

Prequel to the sleep logs

Some people may be wondering why I’m getting excited about Sir A only waking 2 or 3 times in a night. This is for them. At 2 months Sir A was self settling and sleeping 12 hours straight. Dream baby, you would think. His weight was also starting to plateau (from 2.5 months to 5.5 … Continue reading

Sleep log: Sir A 30/01/13

So in the last post I think I had two goals – persevere with not feeding him to sleep in the evening, and persevere with rescuing my nipple and escaping if he woke during his nap. Evenings The two evenings after the last post made me rethink that idea. Sir A was VERY sad when … Continue reading

Boyses 17/01/09

Have I mentioned lately how sweet my boys are? It’s kinda something that can never be said enough. Except for it might induce vomiting, but that’s not my problem 😀 The boys seem to have finally figured out how to play with their train tracks together. (Of course after writing that they’ll start fighting like … Continue reading

Sleep log (Sir A) 17/01/13

Yeah, probably no one else cares, but where else am I going to store all this info? So, the first night Sir A did well. Slept 2.5 or so hours before first waking, and two times after that I think. The next day I thought I’d be brave and not feed him to sleep for … Continue reading

Sleep update 10/01/13

Sleep; that wondrous, elusive thing. Actually, it’s not so bad in our house. Lord B and Amazing Husband are quite used to each other and sleep very well on their separate beds (Lord B doesn’t like being too close to anyone) and Sir A and I enjoy all night cuddles most nights and get plenty … Continue reading

Things I’ve learnt the hard way as a parent: Lesson two: you can’t change reality

Lesson two: you can’t change reality First aspect of reality? Lesson One. Much as we’d all love to be able to get out a user’s manual for our kids, it’s really our job to write that manual, with their help, so they can read it later on. Second aspect of reality? Perfection is impossible. This … Continue reading
