This week I’m a little bit late to the party with my look back at the week thanks to a nasty taste of food poisoning or a stomach bug that hit on Friday night. It’s been pretty hard looking after a little one with a constant feeling of nausea, I’m not sure what I would have done had this have happened in the week with my husband at work. All I say is he has been a dream looking after me and baby. So here’s a look back at the best bits of my week:
This week I was nominated by the lovely Hannah at The Diary of an “Ordinary” Mum for the Liebster Award. I’ve only been blogging for 6 weeks now but this means so much to me to be recognised for my blog already, so thank you Hannah. I’ve been meaning to write my Liebster Award blog post all weekend, and I was gutted to be unable to do this due to illness, so watch this space……
Last week we had our final Waterbabies class of the term, along with the photo shoot. The shoot was great, the team at Waterbabies set-up a studio underwater to capture our little one whilst being dunked under. I was actually quite surprised how good the pictures were, and we have purchased two. They are expensive, but it is an image that we will only be able to capture once and it will make great presents for all the family.
We are slowly progressing with our weaning journey, purees are still a firm favourite for dinner especially pear and apple (she must have a sweet tooth like her Mum). So far the baby-led weaning approach is hit or miss, with some foods going in the mouth and some going on the floor. We have so far been lucky with toast, but unlucky with anything green. I have also discovered that a full brick of Weetabix for breakfast goes down a treat.
Another update on sleep progress, I can now place our little one into her cot awake without the patting and shushing, and she will fall asleep on her own. Those that have read my blog post on my new sleep routine will know that I was patting and shushing to sleep instead of feeding to sleep. This is great news, and I hope that my gradual retreat method is now working.
Have a great week, thanks for reading.
