Yesterday we took Clara swimming for the first time. I thought we would have a lot more tears as the water was freezing at first but she didn’t seem to mind. She seemed fairly indifferent to the whole thing to be honest. Until the wave machine came on – then she wasn’t happy. We got out at that point – mainly because I was struggling to keep hold of a crying baby and make sure I didn’t get knocked over in the waves at the same time.
Whenever I look at Clara – whether she is sound asleep in her moses basket, feeding contently or giving me a big cheeky smile – I don’t want these moments to end.
With your first child you can’t wait to reach the big milestones. We rush to wean onto food, impatiently anticipate their first word and step, even look forward to that first tooth popping up.
As they grow into toddlers and young children, its all about how quickly they can potty train, learn to count, learn colours, shapes and numbers. (more…)
Happy first anniversary to my Husband. And happy International Kissing Day everyone.
Frozen has officially taken over our lives. I know this because of the following things that have happened lately…
1. Izzy can (and incessantly does) reenact the entire film word for word complete with actions and facial expressions. She gives me roles to play but gets really annoyed if I don’t get the words exactly right.
2. Whenever anyone in our house starts a sentence with the words “Do you…”, someone quickly jumps in with “wanna build a snowman?” (more…)
I can’t believe its been a week since our beautiful girl arrived. She has settled in well at home and her proud big sister has taken so well to suddenly having a new baby in the house.
