Today I had a great time sketching Peter in the evening, playing with my new watercolour field box while he worked on his blog.

Today I woke up late and was too exhausted to drive to work as Owen had been up more than 10 times in the night and I hardly slept! Luckily my employers are flexible enough to let me work from home.

Today I worked from home as I had a midwife appointment. Was quite tired as I woke in the night and couldn't get back to sleep thinking about all the baby stuff. Also IKEA arrived today with more goodies!

Today we went to Rose's house to meet up with our NCT friends and Owen had a great time playing with Rose and other children. On our way home he fell deeply asleep in the car and didn't wake when we moved him. In the evening we reshuffled the living room furniture again in search of a better layout.

Today I took Owen to the Charlbury toddler group. Later in the rainy afternoon, I got to play with my new watercolour set while Owen played with his. I was chuffed that he seemed impressed by my painting.

Today we finally arranged for Uncle Pete and family to come visit. Owen immediately warmed up to him and even asked to sit on his lap. We had a lovely afternoon being sociable.

Today we went to the library in Witney, and had lunch at Coffeesmith. Owen was quite happy and I even got to do a little sketching at the cafe. In the evening we had steamboat dinner at home.

Today I worked from home as I was too tired to get out of the house. In the evening, I got my old Telecaster out for a play. It's been so long!

Thursday, 5th Jan 2017

Today Owen woke up many times in the night, like a newborn. He's been doing that every other day or so for the past 2 months, and not napping in the day. We're exhausted!

Today we went to the hospital again to see the obstetrician. In the evening I worked late to make up for lost time. Owen was very happy on his first day back to nursery after the long holiday.

Tuesday, 3rd Jan 2017

Today we moved the furniture a bit to try out different layout. Still undecided about what to do with our house and reluctant to commit to big furniture or drilling holes though we moved in half a year ago.

Today was the second day of the new year and already I missed all my New Year resolutions as I was too busy shopping on IKEA online. We stayed in though it was a nice day, and I spent a lot of time playing with Owen.

Sunday, 1st Jan 2017

Today was New Year's Day. True to my resolutions, I wrote something, sketched something, took a picture, and slept till nearly noon (Owen was ill from cold, so he snoozed till nearly noon!)

Today we finally came back home, Owen was sad to leave grandparents, but was also very happy when we reached home, especially after a good nap in the car.

Today Peter's best friends from Hong Kong came and visit us at Peter's parents' house, and we had fun catching up.

Today Peter and his parents too Owen to the park, and he had loads of fun. Afterwards he had more presents.

Sunday, 25th Dec 2016

Today was Christmas Day. We were super excited for Owen, and he was spoilt with many presents.
