Today we stayed home and Owen opened more birthday presents. Baby had a blocked nose and feeding at night had been tedious, leaving me exhausted.
Today was Owen's pirate birthday party in the forest. Was nice to meet his friends' parents. I was exhausted and had a migraine in the afternoon.
Today grandparents came down to help and I made Owen's birthday cupcakes. He played at our new patio for the first time.
Today we went to Witney to get supplies for Owen's party on Sunday and in the evening I baked some cheesy coins.
Today I started making some party food for Owen's birthday party on Sunday while carrying baby in a sling.
Today I found out I could vacuum the house while carrying baby in a sling. I felt like a superwoman.
Today we went to the hospital in Oxford and then to the Natural History Museum afterwards.
Today we went back home. Both children fell asleep for almost the entire journey.
Today we celebrated Easter and Owen's birthday. He was very excited but sleepy (woke up since 6am), and didn't want to try the balance bike I got him.
Today we went to Peter's parents for the Easter weekend, and both children were very good in the car, awake but not grumpy or crying. When we arrived, baby was smiley and observant.
Today we went to the Easter event at Blenheim Palace but it wasn't as good as I'd expected as it was cold and windy and Owen was grumpy and prone to tantrums.
Today I was exhausted from a tough night of breastfeeding (where I breastfed baby from 1 to 4am non-stop, and then every 30mins-1 hour afterwards). It don't understand. What did she do with the milk? Where did it go? She couldn't possibly hold that much milk.
Today I went for my 6 weeks postnatal check. Someone came to start work on our patio. Very excited about having a patio soon!
Today we stayed home and tried to let Peter get some work done, but we still had our hands full with hyperactive Owen (who was very happy all day), and a constantly nursing baby.
Today we went to Witney to get Owen new shoes, but didn't buy any in the end. In the evening we continued watching Death in Paradise, which we loved.
Today we stayed home and enjoyed the sun in our garden instead. I had problems with over supply of breast milk and realised how much more troublesome this was than under supply.
Today it was very warm and sunny. We went to Blenheim Palace again.
Today both Peter and I got fed up with Owen when he refused to eat dinner and was making a mess instead. This was exacerbated by Harriet being poorly and fussy. In the evening when we could finally relax, we watched Zombie Pride and Prejudice.
Today we went early to pick Owen up from nursery so we could drop the birthday party invitations for his nursery friends. Afterwards we went to the park and Owen face-planted from the slide and got some nasty bruises on his face and forehead!
Today I rushed about to get things ready for Owen's birthday while baby requires non-stop breastfeeding.
