Today for the first time, Harriet slept for 5hrs without feeding in the night. I was still exhausted all day though, from housework and playing with Owen, and accumulated tiredness from the past week. Owen came up to me and told me he loved me, which made it worthwhile.
Today Alice and Simon came to ours for lunch. Owen was very friendly and we had a great time. In the evening I heard Harriet laugh for the first time.
Today Harriet woke up at a decent time and we managed to go to the shops and back before noon! We even managed to get some breakfast outside. I spent a lot of time playing with Owen and he was very happy.
Today we took the children via train to watch Room On The Broom at Oxford Playhouse. In the evening Peter discovered some magic to get Harriet to stay asleep.
Today Harriet hardly napped at all. And at night she woke me up every 30mins to an hour and took ages to get back to sleep. I was exhausted!
Today I took Harriet to get her immunisation. She was having difficulties napping and we both ended up dozing on the sofa for 3 hours.
Today we drove back home again from the long weekend at grandparents' house. Owen was very good and helped me bathe baby Harriet in the evening.
Today we had some peace and quiet at last. Owen was happier and in the night I finally got baby Harriet to sleep in her own bed instead of co-sleeping with me.
Today Harriet napped like a dream in the attic at grandparents' house away from the noisy preschoolers. There was a lot of cousins shrieking going on downstairs that drove me mad too.
Today we packed and drove to grandparents' house with Owen being distracting and annoying like one of those 'are we there yet' children.
