I wrote this post more than 6 months ago, and can’t remember why I didn’t publish it. My friend My Lilbookworm reminded me of it when she did a book review here. Please do read it for more information on the book! ************************************************* A few days after she turned one, Scout started taking several steps,… Continue reading First Steps
How lovely is the weather currently? We are enjoying giving our fans and air conditioners a break. Our home can be quite chilly in the mornings and we are actually wearing our cardigans (me) and sweaters (boys) on our morning walk to school at 8am. Scout is in longs the entire day, and sometimes with… Continue reading Why we keep warm even in a tropical climate.
Scout turned 16 months earlier this month. I don’t usually do month by month updates (actually I don’t do it at all!) but she is growing so fast and learning so many things, in some ways I think this is such magical time. Firstly, although she’s been walking since 12 months, she is still toddling… Continue reading Sweet 16
I often use the term “my previous life” in reference to the life before I had kids. Many newbies think, “Oh when baby comes I’ll just fit him into my life/schedule/activities, and not let him run my life.”. (I said run, not ruin.) Well, we all know how that really ends up, don’t we? Parenting,… Continue reading My previous life
August 1-7 was breastfeeding week, and now that Scout is almost 11 months, I thought it would also be an appropriate time to share what I’ve learnt about breastfeeding over these past 5 years. I struggled breastfeeding my boys, so I like to think that I’ve maintained a balanced opinion of breastfeeding, and really feel… Continue reading To the Milky Way and back
I’m not regular with the baby updates, but since this past month has been so filled with activity, I would like to put it on record before my mummy amnesia gets to it. This month there has been a lot of crawling, pulling and pushing herself up to standing, loving cereal (not so much porridge)… Continue reading 8 Months, and boy time is flying!
My little girl has turned 7 months! I thought that it would get easier as the days went by, but I was wrong. The boys are always fighting, and add to that Scout is only getting heavier, and has been having separation anxiety since she was 4 months. I indulge her because it’s a natural… Continue reading 7 months
Last week Mittens turned five and Scout five months. We celebrated with cake for Mittens and scraped apple for Scout, which she did not like at all. Both of them have grown tremendously in recent months, in different ways. Mittens can now cycle proper after striding on his bike for a month or so, and… Continue reading Turning Five
It’s been almost two months now, and how busy life has been! There is usually such a flurry of activity every day that I’m not really sure how we’ve survived so far. But amazingly we have! I think when you’re in the moment it always feels as if it’s too much, but somehow the days… Continue reading 6 Weeks
It’s fast closing in on four weeks since the little girl came into our lives, and with the end of the confinement month, I almost feel as if I’m about to get my (social) life back, even though we all know that’s easier said than done when you have kids. It’s really felt like my… Continue reading End of confinement, the start of a new family life.
