Today we packed and drove to grandparents' house with Owen being distracting and annoying like one of those 'are we there yet' children.
Today I was 10 mins late to see the nurse for Harriet 's immunisation due to baby faffing , and was told I had to reschedule. I was tired from the bad night, hot and bothered by the weather, and was fuming about the wasted trip. Afterwards Harriet did not nap.
Today it was too warm. Owen fell backwards out of our patio doors onto the patio and hurt his head. Why is he so accident prone? In the evening baby Harriet wouldn't sleep till 2:30am.
Today we met up with NCT friends at Blenheim Palace for picnic after Owen finished preschool and he had a great time playing hide-and-seek with Rose.
Today Owen came home early from preschool as he had tripped and bashed his nose, and was bleeding a lot and feeling shaken.
Today we stayed home all day and finally had our BBQ! It was rather hectic trying to juggle that with a demanding preschooler and an overtired baby, but we did it.
Today we went to Blenheim Palace in the afternoon. In the evening, we tried and failed to light the fire on our BBQ.
Today we went to Witney for Owen to get a haircut. It was raining.
Today Daisy came to visit and we saw Owen eat pasta/spaghetti for the first time though we've been hearing rumours about it at his nursery for awhile.
Today I realised baby had been often overtired and that I had been inculcating bad sleeping habits. IKEA delivered our new garden furniture but missed a few items.
Today we went to Chipping Norton for lunch while Owen was in preschool.
Today I baby Harriet was having sleep problems, and eventually we napped together on the sofa. Owen still seemed tired and sleepy all day, and even dozed off on the bus back from forest school.
Today we went to Chipping Norton to run some errands. Owen was happy but Harriet hardly slept.
Today we just stayed home. I got to play with Owen, and he even had a nap! Owen said he loved Harriet, and when I asked if he loved me too, he said yes and gave me a kiss.
Today we went to the new Leys park in Witney. When we went shopping afterwards, Owen fell asleep on the trolley. In the evening I had a migraine and threw up all the chocolate and dinner I ate.
Today I came down with a nasty cough, and Peter, Owen and baby were still having their nasty colds. We're a poorly bunch! But we've got cake.
Today I baked a rhubarb cake using the rhubarb in our garden while baby was napping. It was a bit burnt in the end as I was then busy breastfeeding. We intend to eat it all by ourselves since we have no social life.
Today it was lovely and warm. Grandparents dropped in for an unplanned visit, and both baby Harriet and Owen had a great time with them.
Today we hosted our NCT group's play date, and the chicken pie proved popular with the children. There were 10 children in our house!
Today was manic staying in with Owen and Harriet as they both wanted much attention. I spent most of the evening making chicken pie for tomorrow's NCT gathering at our place.
