Noises from naptime

"Ten, nine, eight, seven, six, five, four, three, two, one, zero...

"Blast off!!"

Thank you, Colin Buchanan, for teaching my son to count. Even if it is backwards.

Party Prep

There's a Winnie-the-Pooh birthday party in the works. Here's a sneak peak...

Our afternoon

I had a fair few jobs that needed to be done this afternoon. I was feeling pretty unmotivated, and couldn't decide where to start. So I let SP decide. 

This was our afternoon: 

A daytime sleep!

Another sleep-related post! Fellow parents will not be surprised, given how much sleeping seems to affect everything else. I'll try to post about something more interesting soon - so much going on at the moment that I don't seem to have the brain space to write about it!

Anyway, SP's having a day sleep for the first time in a week! Turns out it's REALLY important at the moment that he's in bed by midday, and too many days of the week we're just getting home & starting lunch about then. 

Time for some better time management strategies, I think...

A sleep in!

On an average weekday we're all up at 6, and we'll stretch it out a maximum 10-15 minutes on weekends before SP becomes insistent. When Dave turned to me this morning and said it was nearly 6:30, I just about fell out of bed. 

He reminded me of a conversation we had on the Saturday after SP was due to be born (and a week before his actual birth): he wanted to get up and get things done, but I suggested we rest a bit longer because post-baby we might not have the chance for a long time. I was right. 

But today, we didn't hear SP until about 6:45. Then it became a challenge to stay in bed until 7 just to see if we could. 

When I went in to get him (which is usually Dave's job), he was sitting huddled in bed with his sheet over his knees and his beloved wrap held around his shoulders, granny style. My gorgeous boy :)
