  Colic. My old enemy… It’s back. And it’s bigger and badder than before.   He screams. I feed him. He screams. I rock him. He screams. I burp him. He screams. I pace with him. He screams. Brodie rocks, burps, paces with him. He screams. I cuddle him. He…

It was Saturday. For the first time in ages we had no house viewings on the far side of the city to attend. No visitors to see the baby. No interest in doing any of the pile of housework that needed doing. The sun was shining. The dregs of the ‘good’…

Those Newborn Daze. Blink, and you'll miss them.

We will never get these first precious weeks back again. Time slips away fast amongst the chaos of the early newborn days. Blink, and you’ll miss them.   The Days The washing machine on an endless cycle. Wash, dry, wear, soil, remove, repeat. Still the…

Before and afterbirth. Pregnant no more. All of a sudden bump was now baby…   Boo had finally arrived, on his own terms. 12 hours after my waters broke his birth journey was complete. That was a pretty good rate of progress, especially with…

The baby finally arrives - Boo's Homebirth

2.30 am I’m lying in bed, dozing through the Braxton Hicks that have become more intense over the past few nights. I’m not sure where the line is drawn between these and early labour contractions that can start and stop, but they’re definitely getting…

Review: We really loved the Freddy Buttons Books by @FionaDillonHL

The Rascal is an avid reader of books, even though he can’t actually read them himself yet. If he’s not hounding someone else to read a book for him, he’s sitting perusing the pictures and ‘reading’ them based on an impressive memory for repeating stories…

40 Weeks - The Waiting Game

38, 39, 40 weeks… It’s been week after week with list upon list of things still to be done. Wondering if we’d ever be ‘ready’ for this baby in time before it decided to come. But there were no early surprises. Somehow all the important things are done.…

Week 39 - Let's just have (another) nap

Week 39. So so tired. All I want to do during the day is nap. Then I spend my nights too uncomfortable to sleep for more than an hour at a time. If it’s not Boo pummelling my innards, it’s my bladder deciding it’s reached full capacity (again), or the…
