Grace's 6 Month Update

I can not believe Grace is 6/7 months already, I know it's cliche to say but time really has flown by in the blink of an eye.
One thing that is confusing me is the fact that Grace is 28 weeks old, a week older every Friday, so that is equal to 7 months, right? She was born on the 15th, so that would mean that on the 15th of every month she is 1 month older, hence she is 6 months?
Anyway, I'm just rambling.....Grace is growing up so much, I have really noticed it in the past few weeks.
She can finally sit up, unaided! I could tell for a while she was getting to the point where she was going to be able to do it on her own.
The look of frustration on her face when she would fall over was just heartbreaking, but she finally cracked it, and she couldn't be happier, and I couldn't be prouder.
Another amazing thing is that we have started giving her finger food this week, nothing too much. She has tried a rusk, much of which ended up on the carpet, sofa, me and her self, and she's also tried, and loved, the Organix Carrot Sticks. They are easy for her to pick up and they do actually taste quite nice, the perks of weaning you have to try the food first, right?
I don't know if I've mentioned this before, I think I have, but Grace really does not like tummy time, I mean she used to scream the house down. However lately she seems to finally understand that it isn't a tortuous, evil thing that mummy makes her do, it's a fun thing. Well for around 5 minutes, then it becomes an escape attempt, by that I mean trying (and failing) to roll over onto her back.
She still can't seem to get the hang of rolling fully over. She gets so far, basically on her belly but her arm kinda gets trapped and she can't move any further, so mummy or daddy has to come to the rescue.

What else.....?
I have noticed she is starting to favour toys, for instance she has a particular liking for anything that crinkles. At the minute that is the packet of baby wipes. As soon as they are anywhere within her reach she's got them! Although she did fall out with them for about 2 minutes when she accidentally poked her self in the eye. She was fine, but was not very happy with the wipes.

Anyway enough rambling, Grace is off in the land of nod, and I intended to be there very soon.

P.S. The photos of Grace are so funny, she pulls this face whenever we put a camera in her face.

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…
