Hardening up

We had Sticky's 6 month check up today including needles. Given it's my 4th time around, I'm clearly hardening up to the jabs!

The healing power of babies

I took Sticky back to swimming today at our local pool. As the only baby there, I could never have imagined the impact she would have!

Facing the inevitable

Last week, I received an email from my manager at work asking when I would be coming back. Given we're nearly into August, it's fast approaching and I need to start preparing myself for my inevitable return!

Appreciating the little things

Sadly, all good things must come to an end, so today, I am on a little bit of a post-holiday come down. But, it was the best weekend I've had since my honeymoon!

Baby feeding school

Sticky and I went to baby feeding school today - a workshop on the process of introducing babies to solids. Let's just say the childhood obesity epidemic isn't going away anytime soon!

Beware of little fingers

Over the weekend, Sticky took a big leap with her sensory development. She now wants to grab everything and her new favourite is noses! My husband and I are now sporting little scratches thanks to pinching baby fingers!

Fabulous Friday

They say a picture tells a thousand words and today, I'm glad for that saying.  This is a picture of Sticky holding one of Peanut's flowers.  It's the first flower she's ever held. 

I don't have the words to explain why this is fabulous but it filled my heart with enormous happiness and love to see her little fingers gripping it. I guess, sometimes in life, there are just no words to convey what's in our hearts!

Lessons we teach our daughters

I saw an interesting discussion on tv yesterday about how we teach our children about body image from the moment they pop out. It turns out that us parents have to take a large part of the responsibility for teaching our daughters to hate their bodies.

Family time

As Wonder Week #5 continues, and we contend with ongoing disrupted sleep, I decided it was time for some family time and Sticky's first picnic!

The challenges of a sick baby

For the first time in a long time, I've been reminded of the challenges of Motherhood. For the    past 3 days, Sticky has suffered a cold, teething and a Wonder Week all at once. Welcome to Motherhood!
