Little Mister is teething and has been teething for what (already) feels like forever. We had major progress last weekend with the first 2 gnashers popping into the world, and this week I’ve learned that they are bloody sharp indeed… (both through wrestling him still to clean them and from foolishly leaving my arm exposed long enough to get a good chomp in).

With time whizzing by, I’ve definitely become more conscious of capturing all those special milestones and moments that my Little Mister has been growing through. Whilst his memory book is still waiting to be filled in, I have been taking plenty of pictures so definitely have lots of reference points for when I have a free hour (ha!) and a hot cuppa (haha!) to sit and catch up. I’ve also been very good with getting photos printed as they come, with lots of bargains had using groupon (like 100 snapfish photos for £1 and 100 truprint photos for £1), and have actually started sticking them into some sort of album…
When I first saw the title, I wondered how cliché I could get in my response. Of course, I couldn’t live without my family. I also couldn’t function without my phone (how else would I Instagram everything I eat?!?). And it wouldn’t be worth getting through the day without my desktop PC; imagining a world without big monitors and gloriously click-y keyboards makes me sad… and disgusted at the prospect of only ever typing on a touch screen. So I thought I would use this Blogtober post to cover something that has genuinely made my life a million times easier with Little Mister; the Tommee Tippee Perfect Prep Machine.
I’m writing this today while both of us have a pyjama day. It seems that both of us have come down with a cold (*sadface*), so double the tissues all round this week. Because of this, I was expecting to be up all night with the Bubs crying (rightly so), but luckily he managed to sleep through after having some saline spray at 10 o’clock. In spite of being under the weather, he’s still super active and even managed to roll onto his tummy in the crib last evening after Daddy got him bathed for bed. Thank goodness for his Nana chair (a fisher price rocking chair from my Mum); no matter how miserable things get, the Nana chair never fails to get things back to calm and smiley again. On the upside, just as I’m finishing writing this the Little Man has done his first back-to-front-to-back roll and repeated it a few times! Eeeeep, need to keep an eye on him now before he tries to leg it!
Little Mister and I have been stuck in the house for 3 days now. Apparently an expected delivery date of Wednesday-Thursday means early afternoon on Friday, silly me. I’d had had the bright idea to get a playpen before we really needed one (before Lhe discovers he can co-ordinate arms and legs into some sort of transportation method and start chewing on the cables). As well as being a safe and secure baby jail during the waking hours (Little Mister is only 3 months, but is frequently shuffling off his play-mat whilst the adults pop to make delicious black coffee), it would be a great holding cell at night for the rest of the baby toys that seem to scatter wildly around the house. We decided upon the MCC playpen, as featured on Amazon and eBay.
