I haven’t updated in a while because, well, there hasn’t really been a lot to update.
For two days we had him sleeping 8pm-5am which was bloody amazing, and then he got a cold and I’ve been up every hour since. He’s still a huge ball of snot so I can’t see it getting better any time soon… But when he is, I am confident we can get him sleeping alright. As long as he doesn’t get ill, or develop another food intolerance, or go through a Wonder Week leap, or try to learn something new.
At 6.5 months, he today learnt to sit himself up and pull himself up to standing and then stand with one hand. He already crawls, fast. My toddler was always so ‘on time’ with all her milestones, I was ill prepared for this. I’ve built a cage – I mean playpen – which takes up half my living room. Of course the toddler wants to use it as a den and keeps filling it with crayons and other choking hazards so it’s not working remarkably well, but at least he hasn’t chewed the wires again.
Namely, my first supermarket BIG SHOP with the pair of them, on my own (I’m usually an Ocado girl, but it was pouring and I was desperate for something to do that involved leaving the house but didn’t involve other people’s snotty shouty toddlers. One is enough) and taking them to lunch, on my own, in a real live restaurant when actual people were there, enjoying their free time.
