Grace's First Night In Her Own Room.

As I told you all recently, Grace moved into her own bedroom last night, and my gosh did she surprise us!

Her usual bedtime routine is:

Daddy takes her upstairs at 7pm,
mummy changes her nappy,
daddy gives her her last bottle,
and she gets popped into her moses basket, and off she drifts too sleep, until the next morning!

So we continued this same routine, and it worked brilliantly. She went straight too sleep! I was absolutely surprised when Mark came downstairs at 7:15pm, and said she was completely out of it!

We checked on her several times throughout the night, and some how she had managed to wriggle her little self out from the tightly tucked in covers, and do a complete 90 degree turn!

How she managed this is beyond me. The covers were still tucked in neatly, but she was in the middle of the cotbed, verticle.
I wasn't too worried as she was still sound asleep, and looked really comfy, the only think that worried me was that she would get cold. So we just had too keep putting her back into her covers, until we went to bed ourselfs.
This morning, as you proberbly guessed, she was again verticle.
We are thinking a Grobag is the way to go?
I'm sure I will pick one up and try it out at some point.
So that's how Graces first night in her own room went, hopefully it will be smooth sailing from here on out. Fingers crossed.

So it's been a while. Life truly took over, and I honestly don't know where to begin.
I imagined being a mum and keeping up with this blog an easy thing to achieve, how wrong was I? I have so much to update I feel like I'll be typing away for ages. So this is probably going to be a long one. 

Firstly a quick update on the kids (yes I said kids!!!)

Grace is doing amazingly well, she's 2 and a half! How the hell did that happen? She's in nursery five days a week, although it is just 3 hours in a morning, but I'm not complaining. She really has turned into the sweetest little girl, she is so caring and loving towards her little brother, we'll get to him in a moment, she knows a few colours, can count to 3, potty training is in full swing (I will do a post dedicated to potty training) and she's always singing and dancing, mainly to make her little brother laugh. All in all she's come on so much since starting nursery in September and I'm so glad we mad…

Grace's First Easter.

This Easter was Grace's first. We don't celebrate Easter for the religious reasons, we just celebrate it in the chocolate giving way. Easter Sunday we didn't really do much. We ate chocolate and went to the pub in the afternoon to meet up with Marks family. Bank holiday Monday was the fun day! Up at our local working men's club, they hold an annual Easter party for the kids, they have games, music an Easter bonnet competition and of course Easter eggs. A few weeks earlier I had started making Grace and my niece Ellie's Easter bonnets. It took me and my sister a total of 3 hours to do them, although I did keep adding bits and bobs to them. I couldn't help it. Here is the finished product. All mine and my sisters hard work paid off, because Grace won first prize! She won an Easter egg and £10! WooHoo. We all had an amazing Easter bank holiday, and I am looking forward to the next one so I can do a bit more with Grace. Maybe an Easter egg hunt! Grace must have had a lo…

Having A Break Is OK.

Having Grace has by far been the hardest thing I have ever had to do in my entire life, that being said it is the most rewarding, and I wouldn't change it for the world. However, and I'm sure many mums have found themselves thinking this at one time or another, I NEED A BREAK! I even feel bad just saying that, how could I possibly need a break from my own baby? What kind of mother does that make me? This past week I really have found it hard, but I have learnt that it is OK to need some time to yourself every now and again, you wouldn't be human if you didn't. Grace has been especially hard work this week, she has developed a dislike to me, yes me her mother, which makes it a million times harder to do, well anything. The only person she seems to like at the minute is her daddy, which is just too cute, but not very practical when he works all night and sleeps in the day. This is what inspired me to write this post. You will need a break every now and again, and it's ok…
