It’s been quite a while since I last wrote a blog post
To be honest (as you might guess from previous posts) I struggled quite a lot after Baby M was born
I felt like every day I was just doing enough to get by
Then Mini M had a quite big operation & it was horrible seeing him in pain & he was quite poorly after. I was at home with both boys by myself & there were days I felt like an awful mum
Then a few things happened – the biggest influence being someone I know (through blogging) husband passed away after an incredible battle
The person who’s husband passed away is such an incredible lady & to see how her & her family were managing both in the lead up to & after his death made me realise that life is far too short. Life is about the here & now. Life is about living & enjoying all the moments
I’m not going to lie & say I’m a bundle of happiness every day but I’m trying to enjoy things more. I’m taking each day as it comes. Yes I’m making plans but nothing massive. I also have a great support network of family & friends.
Mini M is now fully recovered from his operation. When Baby M arrived we had a lot of behaviours from Mini M but they seem to be settling down & he’s back to our happy little boy. Don’t get me wrong there are days when he seriously tries my patience, but he’s 3 that’s going to happen!
Baby M is such a happy, smiley boy. He is very determined & has rolled over, he rolled for the first time when he was 14 weeks old. Now he gets so frustrated with himself when he’s on his front as he’s moving his legs & trying to pull himself along the floor. I keep telling him he’s still only little & it’ll come (not that he understands me!)
He loves being in his jumperoo as he loves standing. He’s also sitting in his Nuby seat, his head control is brilliant
This weekend we started trying him with little bits of baby rice as he’s been showing signs of wanting something more than milk. He loves it!!! He is so pleased with himself & laughs when he’s had some. He opens his mouth like a little bird
If only he’d sleep a little bit better at night!! We have nights where he sleeps for 5 hours then we do exactly the same thing the night after & he wakes every 2-3 hours! I definitely don’t think the tiredness helps my mood
I’m back working out, my commitment is flaky but I’m going to try do a few more workouts as the exercise not only helps boost my mood but makes me feel better about myself – I hate my tummy at the moment but am aware it’s been less than 4 months since I gave birth
I’m also going to get back into blogging, I’ve just not had the motivation to do much. I’ve got quite a few reviews to do so be prepared for a few review heavy weeks! I’m not going to put too much pressure on myself, I love blogging & want to keep it that way. Once the reviews are done I’m going to blog when I want about what I want.
So there’s a little update & I’m looking forward to getting back into blogging. Most important though is making sure my 3 boys are happy & healthy. At the end of the day they’re the most important people but I have to make sure I look after myself too.
