February 2019

For the shortest month of the year, February has been a busy one.

Josie is doing well. She did have a cold which lasted pretty much the whole of February, but after a few nights of very little sleep she quickly got back into her usual routine of sleeping through. I, however, did not, as her sniffling and snoring kept me awake. Saline nose spray seemed to help her, as did putting a few drops of vapour oil on a wet flannel on the radiator. She also had her 16 week immunisations (although she was 22 weeks at the time) and other than a horrible piercing cry she dealt with it pretty well.

January 2019

January is such a long month. We spent much of it indoors as it’s been too wet and cold to go far. But on the plus side that’s meant lots of cosy cuddles with Josie who is just an absolute delight.

She’s such a happy, chilled out baby. She’s turned 4 months old now and has been laughing and giggling a lot – especially at her big sisters.

2018

2018 was another big year for us. Every year I set out a long list of resolutions most of which I never fulfil. But my biggest hope for 2018 was that we would be lucky enough to add a third child to our family. And sure enough, on the 9th January we found out I was pregnant. So the first part of the year was spent feeling delighted but very sick, the middle part hugely pregnant and the latter part of the year very much in love with baby Josie, who joined us in September.

5 gifts for Baby’s First Christmas

This year we will be spending Christmas as a family of 5, with our newest addition Josie. She will be 13 weeks old on Christmas Day; too young to know what’s going on but all the same we want to celebrate her first ever Christmas. We’ve bought a few things to mark the occassion, but most of all we are looking forward to having some chilled out family time over the Christmas break and lots of cosy Josie cuddles.

Our new addition to the family

So I’ve been very quiet on the blog and social media lately. And that’s because I’ve spent the majority of the last few months feeling exhausted and always within grabbing distance of the sick bucket. But if ever there is an occasion where 24/7 vomming is a good thing, this is it.

Yep, I’m growing a human. A new addition which will make us a family of five. It’s been a rough start to an otherwise very exciting time of our lives, but I’m over the worst of the sickness now (touch wood) and feeling so much better so this is my first blog post in around 3 months!
