It’s been a quiet few days here, hasn’t it? Blame a baby who seems to have stopped enjoying falling asleep at night to the soothing tones of a mother tapping out a blog post on an iPhone, and prefers instead my undivided. attention. Ideally for an hour and a half. And there we have it, my new evening routine!
Anyway my 10month old seems to be, finally, coming out of a pretty tough few weeks of teething+cold, a brutal combination. All that’s left is to improve the nighttime routine and I’ll be back on track with the blog posts so… see you in about 2 years?
No no, I have a plan with sleep and it involves transitioning to shorter naps. I will report back soon.
Anyway. What else around here. A third birthday for my thirdborn. A gratuitously bright and sugary mum-cake in the shape of the number 3, and, in a fit of selfless commitment to children’s terrible taste, the addition of some paw patrol figurines.…Incidentally, I have finally perfected the ultimate chocolate cake recipe for children’s birthday cakes, to be shared in a forthcoming post – this gives me a handy excuse to make (eat) it again.
Some beautiful spring weather has meant some beautiful mountain walks behind the house:
And some mornings spent at the beach.
Sunshine, low tide, a visiting grandparent and a rock pool: the perfect morning for a 3 year old?
I am also on the hunt for some good curling tongs for mid length hair (asking for a friend) (me). Any hints you wish to throw my way before I buy a random pair from amazon?
The week ahead: a departing grandparent and a travelling husband. What could possibly go wrong?
