    baby slept badly again, perhaps because of the new arrangement, and I was exhausted, cranky, and had a migraine.
  • Wednesday, 26th November
    baby napped well and everything, but still hated swimming lesson. In the evening, we moved his cot out of our room to his own room. Really grown up now.

    baby slept badly again, making me extremely stressed and worn out, and I felt like I was about to explode.
  • Monday, 24th November
    baby napped for so long, we had to skip his Baby Sensory class. Little truant.
  • Sunday, 23rd November
    baby's grandma and grandpa visited us, and he had a great time with them.
