If I could have one wish today

It would be for the sun to shine so I can hang my washing out and take Max to the park.

What a simple life I lead πŸ™‚ Other mums will know the nightmare of having to dry your washing indoors because its peeing down outside! Believe me it takes days to dry and it drives me nuts.

I haven’t posted in 5 days! I’m a broken record I know, but it’s been so busy.

After my last post we ended up at the hospital with Max because he was breathing a little funny (Yes I’am a first time mum and I panicked). On this occasion my husband actually agreed with me so of to darent we went.

4 hours we were there 4 HOURS!!!

Turns out bubba had croup. The nurse gave him some medicine, then we had to wait a further 3 hours to see a dr who just confirmed what the bloody nurse had said.

Fair to say we were all KNACKERED! Max stayed awake the WHOLE time we were there.

The croup seems to have gone now (thank god).

In other Max news:

He’s finally crawling, hipp hipp hooray!!! Don’t get me wrong he reverts back to dragging his body occasionally (especially when we’rePicture 301 Picture 312 Picture 298 around other people).

These babies do love making us mummys look like liars.Β He has also started to pull himself up onto the furniture, namely his toy box.

Max just seems so happy lately and I think being able to finally get about has a lot to do with it. I’m definitely noticing that he’s a lot chattier.

Were on birthday countdown in our house (still so much to do!!!) less than 3 weeks to go πŸ™‚


In 2 months time

I can’t quite believe that my little monster will be 1 in 2 months time!! WTF!!! where has the time gone.

I find most people plan big elaborate shindigs to celebrate baby turning into a toddler.Each to there own, were planning a small intimate get together at our house. With a soft play sesh at a later date for Max’s pals.

People will think me strange for not planning a huge party, spending lots of money we don’t have all for a day that Max won’t remember.

Im saving the pennies for when he has birthdays when he’s in nursery. Thats when shit gets real expensive!

The week has flown by, where has it gone.

I’ve been picking up a few bits to put away for Max for his birthday and Christmas. I was in the toy shop yesterday when it hit me My baby boy with be 1 in 3 MONTHS!!!!

Its true what they say time really does fly. I miss my tiny baby but I love seeing him grow, develop and learn new skills.

We went to Christmas Tree Farm in Downe.

It was lovely the whole family enjoyed the day. In Β summary there wasn’t much there, but for us there was enough. They sell buckets of food so you can feed the animals. Entry was 4 pound (a lot less than some other farms), you cant take picnics but the food was really reasonably priced. I would take Max again. I think older kids would love this farm.
