Thursday, 18 July 2013: One Hundred and Seven Days Old.

Well, Ayla survived her first night in a big girl bed!

She still wriggled sideways but there were no knots for me to cut out of her hair this morning 🙂

Ayla seems to be getting a better daytime nap routine too; she goes down for a couple of hours around 11am, and then again around 4.30pm.

I’ve been hanging for this routine to take shape for ages and I’m really hoping it lasts!

Even if I can count on a couple of spare hours to myself each day, it will make a world of difference to the house and paper work that’s piling up!


Back to reality


Monday, 15 July 2013: Fifteen Weeks Old

It was back to reality for our little family today.

After three weeks of holidays Ayla and I went to the gym, did the grocery shopping, caught up on house work and made some business calls, while Hubby went back to work.

As boring as all that sounds it was really nice to have some quality one on one time with my Baby Ayla after so long.

Although I knew it already, Ayla really has grown so much!

I noticed that she’s nearly too big for the baby capsule on the shopping trolley, and her little feet poke out the bottom of her pink zip-up cocoon!

They say time flies when you’re having fun, and it definitely does.

But a friend of mine blogged about “being present” today, which was a resounding and timely reminder for me to enjoy the now and appreciate the little things.

Like grocery shopping with my daughter 🙂
