Where to begin?

It has been a while since I last posted, god knows I can't remember it all so I will just fill you in on the main bits.

I decided to try my son in his cot again, he had been waking up a lot in our bed & was difficult to resettle so I figured since I wasn't really getting any extra sleep by having him there I would try the cot again. It has been almost 2 weeks now since he has been in there. The initial transition was rough, he woke every hour. Since then he has slowly improved, still not sleeping through the night but usually only wakes a couple of times. He has randomly thrown in the odd 5-6 hour stretch, last night it was 10.30pm till 3.30am. Slowly but surely we are getting there.

We started swimming lessons last week, it is Tuesday mornings and I go with my sister who takes her 4yo daughter at the same time. It is nice and we tend to grab a coffee afterwards, there were tears this week as the pool heater had blown up and it was son is not a fan of cold water, just like his mummy.

We are super close to crawling, he gets up on all fours and rocks back & forth. He is able to roll all over the place to get around and do 360 degrees and even push backwards a little bit but I don't think it will be too long before he figures out how to go forward. That will keep me on my toes.

This weekend we are going to have a BBQ at our place to watch the AFL Grand Final...Go PIES!

I am off to do the Body Pump class at gym tonight, it has been forever since I have done it and I am not looking forward to's gonna hurt.

Right now I am listening to my overtired baby refusing to go to sleep, sigh. He exhausts me sometimes, he's lucky I love him. I never know what I am going to get with his sleeps...he did an hour & a half nap this morning, and has only slept 2x 40min naps since. Even though he has been rubbing his eyes and is clearly tired he still fights it. I wish my baby liked sleep.

Anyway I best be off to try and convince the stubborn little mite that having a sleep is what's best for him.

The return of Aunt Flo

Well I was lucky enough to be period free for pregnancy through to almost 7 months. It was bound to happen sooner or later...and low and behold, I am craving chocolate! ha

Last night was a shocker with the boy, he woke a lot and would not re-settle easily...trying to fool him with the dummy failed miserably and he would only go back to sleep after some boob. Needless to say I am tired today and having a lazy day.

Yesterday was a good day, my sister came over with my 4 year old niece (who I refer to as the little enigizer bunny as she just goes and goes and goes) and we hit up the newly opened Baby Bunting store. Followed by a walk around the shops and lunch. On that note, I hate when I order a steak medium rare and it comes out practically well done, grrrr.

Not much planned for the weekend as yet, I have a baby shower to go to on Sunday. Should be interesting, as I am only newly acquainted with the girl having the shower and the two mutual friends who I thought would also be going aren't, meaning I am not going to know anyone else there. I am looking at it as a potential opportunity to make new friends, I am sure it will still be a good day.

I am feeling rather bored today. There is only so much internet you can look at until you get over it.

Also it was a gorgeous day here yesterday but today it is overcast and meh.

Well that's all from me for now, as usual...nothing exciting to report here.

By Popular Demand...ha

Alright Alright, I know I have been slack when it comes to this. Sorry bout that.

Let's see, where to start...

I think my son may be teething again, there has been drool galore, lots of munching on absolutely everything and the occasional rosy cheeks...not to mention the bad sleep habits (but then that is nothing new but there have been some shockers). So I am on tooth watch but there doesn't seem to be any telltale bumps on the horizon yet.

He is much more chatty now and loves to yell out Da Da Da Da...although I have told the hubby that he can't claim that until he knows what he is saying, ha. It is awfully cute though, he is definitely finding his voice.

In other news, the hubby and I joined a gym last week. Let me tell you, it has been awhile! I went and did a Body Attack class last Saturday morning and boy am I out of practice. Mind you, it has been well over a year since I had worked out properly. I am still a little sore 3 days later, ouch. We are both trying to improve our eating habits and cut out a lot of the junk, I miss chocolate.

Saturday night I had a girls night (well for a few hours), out for a quick meal followed by a movie. We went and saw 'Friends with Benefits', loved it...was a funny movie with some eye candy, excellent. It was nice to have a bit of down time, although not so nice when I got home and found out that the boy had been incredibly upset and inconsolable for a while. Poor bug...

Sunday was hubby's first Father's Day. We met up with some friends for a morning picnic at the beach, followed by a quick stop at the Shopping Centre...whilst there I had a zip malfunction on my shorts and had to by a new pair of pants (what a good excuse!). Followed by a lovely lunch at a new sushi place in Broadbeach. It was a nice day.

In not so fun news, I have been getting headaches off and on for a week or so sucks. In the old days I would have taken a couple of tablets and tried to sleep it off, not an option anymore. I am not sure what is causing them but I hope they f*ck off soon.

Other than that I am not terribly exciting, so until some more stuff happens that will have to do for now :)
