I’m Not Enjoying This Right Now

We’ve hit the 18 month sleep regression. Or it’s hit us, that feels more accurate. I can’t quite remember how this all went with Darcie, but with Ernie – it’s very much a real thing. His sleep has been getting progressively worse over the last month or so and when I realised that he’s just turned 18 months, it all made sense. He’s also had a back tooth come through and we’ve restarted the milk ladder so there’s lots going on for him and his little body at the moment. (more…)

My Favourite Things About Ernie at 17 Months

Oh my little Ernie boy. I feel like he doesn’t really get much of a look in on here because essentially since he’s been born I have really struggled to find the time to sit down and write anything. Life with two can be very full on, and I actually mean that in a good way. I love that life feels so full now, the boredom I would sometimes feel at home with one baby is nowhere to be seen these days. And loneliness is mostly a thing of the past too. The only downside really to the fullness of life now is  that I neglect this website more than I would like. I love that I can look back at my posts from two years ago and remember all the little moments with Darcie and the different phases she’s been through. But it hit me recently that I can’t do that so easily with Ernie, because I’m just not writing the posts int he first place to ever be able to look back at them. The perfectionist in me always stops me from writing too as I hate the thought of publishing something in a rush or that I’m not super proud of. But this blog started for me, and it still is mainly for me, so I want to make more of an effort to publish more frequently again. Even if they are just posts for me to look back on, I want to make sure I’m documenting my babies as they grow. (more…)

One of Darcie’s favourite things to do is to create things. She always gravitates towards the art area at preschool and at home you can usually find her sitting up at the dining room table making some new, amazing creation. Drawing, painting, making junk models – she loves it all. I have a folder where I keep all (most)  of her creations safe. I love that we can flick back through it together and it always makes me laugh how amazed she is to see her previous masterpieces with fresh eyes, gasping and saying ‘wow’. As much as it’s lovely to be able to do this and to have it all stored safely away, I know that in the future and as she grows lots of it will get forgotten. It’s easy to overlook a piece of paper, no matter how much joy went into creating the masterpiece it holds. (more…)
