Today my sister came over and our boys had a great time playing at the nearby playground.
Today we went to my sister's house. It was amazing having Owen and Coen play with each other and leaving the grownups with no childcare to do. Owen was extremely patient and tolerant when Coen refused to share and had a great time nevertheless. I'm so proud of him.
Today Owen finally got to meet his cousin Coen. I was exhausted from Harriet being awake for 4hours in the night(!). We went to Satay Club for dinner and the two boys were so cute together.
Today Harriet woke Owen in the night with her crying and really upset Owen. So I moved her to my mum's room away from him. In the morning Owen was so tired he threw up and was ill in bed all day.
Today we had a rough night as Harriet woke and refused to go to sleep and then woke Owen with her cries. In the afternoon my mum and I took Owen out for a haircut ($3!) and walk around the town. He was so happy about the lifts, escalators, and bus rides. Later Peter and Harriet joined us and we got to eat out at a restaurant in peace while both children crashed in the stroller & baby carrier. We put the kids to bed at 10pm.
Today we arrived at Singapore! Owen loved it but poor Harriet was so warm she got heat rash and was miserable. And we were all exhausted. Amazingly both children seem to take to my mum immediately so we could get some child care relief.
Today we flew for the first time with kids and everyone was very nice to us. Sadly Owen was still very fussy and grumpy and totally unimpressed by the aeroplane. And the kids only let me sleep for 30mins on the 13hour red eye flight.
Today grandpa came to help look after the children while we frantically packed and sorted stuff out for our trip to Singapore tomorrow!
Today Harriet finally had a few massive poops after days of constipation. She seemed less miserable now and so far been sleeping much more soundly. Fingers crossed. Feeling bad that we keep telling Owen off for being rough with Harriet. He just seemed so hyper lately, or maybe he's always been like that.
Today we watched more The Expanse on Netflix. Harriet was up 8 times last night! So I was generally very cranky today.
Today I did more sorting and packing and got rid of loads of junk! Harriet had a cold and was constipated and was very miserable in general. Poor girl.
Today Harriet was angry all day after a bad night. Owen went to play at Maddie's house after preschool, and Peter had fun socialising with Maddie's dad while I made use of the quiet time to do more packing and sorting.
Today I sorted out my old clothes to throw out and it made me sneeze and sneeze. So much to declutter! I listened to End of The World Running Club while breastfeeding, and rather liked the book. We watched The Expanse on Netflix in the evening and rather liked the show.
Today we went to Witney to do shopping and run errands.
Today we had lunch at the Charlbury Deli and Owen wanted 2 cheese rolls! Later, Owen had a great time feeding peas to Harriet during 'pea time'.
Today we went to the Charlbury Street Fair where Owen had 2 Empanadas, one ice cream and a chocolate cake. We were so exhausted we didn't make dinner for ourselves but only fed the children. Harriet was so tired from not napping that she fell asleep at dinner time.
Today I woke early and did more sorting through the children clothing and old stuff. Harriet was especially cute and been bottom shuffling a lot.
Today we gave Harriet meat for the first time (Chicken casserole) and she loved it.
Today Owen ate carrots (he never used to touch them) and exclaimed, 'I love carrots', and even finished his entire portion of Spaghetti Ragu. Earlier in the evening he had gotten very upset with us for not tidying up the mess in our living room. Who is this child??
Today I woke early and did loads of housework including sorting out the Harriet's baby clothes. When Owen got back from preschool, we went to the park.
