27 and 3/4

I turn 27 and 3/4 years old today, that means I’m about 1/3 through with my life. I often ruminate on what ifs with A as we exchange the banalities of life, and while I am ambivalent on the concept of fate, I believe I am exactly where I should be right now, alongside my man child of a husband and my overweight daughter.


6 weeks milestone

She can now go for 3.5 to 4 hours feeding intervals at night! Nursing timing has also significantly decreased: she used to take 30 minutes on average, she now takes about 10 minutes in the day and less than 20 minutes at night.

5 weeks milestone

Slept the night in her own cot. We were starting to worry that we spent half a grand on the cot and other paraphernalia for nothing!

I bought a beansprout husk filled pillow to be placed across her chest, it is supposed to induce a sense of security. I don’t know how true that is, but last night I made the mistake of removing it for just a short while and she almost immediately tried to flip herself over! She’s the infant version of Scotty 2 Hotty:

Needless to say I immediately replaced the pillow. The pillow shall be permanently glued to her belly henceforth!
