20 Months- Shhh Baby Sleeping

So the Little Man hasn’t been the best sleeper. Granted he’s not the worst and I really feel for those out there with terrible sleepers. But after his sisters it’s been a bit of a shock. So suddenly things seem to have settled down a bit and he’s ‘sleeping through’ and he’s not getting getting up up at 4am or 5am anymore. This weekend he slept until 10am. Yes 10am!! and I’m having to wake him some mornings to take his sisters to school and sometimes from a 3 hour nap. The sleep gods have arrived and my sleep dodger is now a converted sleep lover. I’m not sure what has brought on this sudden and welcome change. He still has 8 teeth to come through so technically he’s still teething. He’s a typical boy and runs everywhere and we spend a lot more time outside but not loads and loads since the weather has been pretty rubbish. He’s still not talking so there is still that major develpment leap to come. All I know with any certainty is I hope this new behaviour is here to stay.

17 Months – Teeth, Talking and Hoovering

My daughter who is 9 suggested the other day that perhaps without teeth he can’t really talk as she has trouble talking when she has a tooth fall out. It’s not such a silly suggestion, they are making kids Continue reading

15 Months – Where Has My Baby Gone

Sometime over the last week my little man went to sleep one night a baby and woke up the next day a full blown little person. He’s been walking for a few weeks now and I was wondering when he was actually termed a toddler. I think the last few days has answered that question for me.

The world has suddenly clicked in his little mind. When I get his coat he puts a little arm out to put into it. When I lift him out of the high chair he runs Continue reading

13 Months – The things we do for sleep

I’m sure my little man isn’t the worst sleeper but he’s certainly not the best. His sisters set a pretty high standard there.

So with jet lag and the clocks changing sleep has been disrupted again! Well it makes a change from my usual excuses for him. Teeth, growth spurt or development milestone.

In our house there are two things that work to get him to sleep or back to sleep. Cuddles from mum or a drive from dad. Cuddles from dad will not be accepted and well mum Continue reading

Week 52 – The 1st Birthday Party

It was the Little Mans 1st birthday yesterday. I still cannot believe that he’s here let alone that he’s 1!

So over the weekend we had a 1st Birthday Party for him. My husband hadn’t originally been too keen, afterall he won’t remember it. But I thought it would be nice for the Little Ladies to have a party for him and well it will be our last Continue reading
