2 days before Christmas

I finally have a minute or two to write a quick blog post. And it is about time because last Sunday you turned 4 months old. Wohoooo. :D

I'm sitting here at your Oma's PC with a keyboard that's all wrong typing a few words about your life.

Now at four months every day is a little bit different as you learn loads of new things. You have found your hands, you chew on your fist and bring your hands together. You even started giggleing a little last Sunday at Nan's house when Great-Nanny June was joking around with you.

You've grown lots too. I've had to pack away the blue sleepsuits, the white socks that Oma bought you, all of the Mama's&Papa's suits and a couple of other bits. It's a little sad not seeing you in them but it not only means that you're getting bigger but also that mummy can go shopping for new clothes. :D

I hope you're enjoying your first Christmas so far. We're in Germany and we're going to see mummy's Grandparents and you will also meet mummy's uncles and aunties and since Opa is driving us there you'll see him too. Yay! :D

I to say though, that you have been a little bit grumpy lately. We hope you'll be a bit happier soon..maybe tomorrow?

We should also start taking bets when your first tooth will come through.

That's it. Daddy wants to post a photo on his blog. Mummy had to stand in the cold and take photos of him running....in the snow.

Until next month, darling.

This Moment

{this moment} – A Friday ritual from Soule Mama, one of my favorite bloggers. A single photo – no words – capturing a moment from the week. A simple, special, extraordinary moment. A moment I want to pause, savor and remember. If you’re inspired to do the same, leave a link to your ‘moment’ in the comments for all to find and see.

Late night musings

As usual, I’m awake while the rest of my little family snoozes happily…or in some cases it’s more a snoring. ;)


I predict that Lime will wake 3 times: at about 2/3, 5/6 and just after that at which point she’ll also be wide awake and think it’s pastime. sigh Where are the days when she woke only once or not at all? …tbc


Right, it is now 5:42am and Lime woke up once at about 4:15am. I nursed her for 10 minutes and then waited almost an hour before transferring her into her nest… where she woke 2 minutes later needing to poop. sigh The husband is now walking her around the house to help her achieve this goal.


In other news, I am thirsty. yawn


STOP THE PRESS! Daddy just got showered with milk! :p

Day 30: Three great things that happened this month.

Snow!

Lime has found her Hands. :D

Lime has been sleeping pretty well at night. Often she's gone right through to 8am. At the moment we have one Pit stop but that's alright. :)




Day 29: Something I could never tire of.

Tumblr?

Why can't I post?? :(


Edit to say that as you can see: I can post. BUT I've been trying to post one photo but it doesn't let me and I get Data Limit Exceeded..or so. They say they're aware and working on it but it's still there. *sigh* I hope they sort it soon cos I need to finish the Mememe and then I want to start a new photo project.
