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.
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.
