Someone is trying his best to walk, in the Button house. He’s almost there, which means I need to move everything in the house up a few inches to safety. we finally relented and fixed our stair gate up, which annoyed BB no end — he’s been emptying boxes and slamming cupboard doors ever since, I’m pretty sure it’s his way of protesting.
As you read this post, I’m probably at the Doctor’s surgery with BB while he has his twelve month vaccinations — I’ve dreaded these for a few months now but the day has arrived. I’m hoping he isn’t too flustered by them, but as his sleep is already wacky I’m not holding my breath.
I posted this weekend about our sleep journey, which is ironic as he’s chosen this week to start getting up at 4am. I think the recent bout of colds and a troublesome tooth have caused him to regress a little, and I’ve found it pretty difficult going some nights this week. Getting up every hour is hard, getting up every hour when it’s so cold is even harder.
I’m still breastfeeding (and coincidentally yes, he feeds to sleep!) and he’s showing no signs of giving it up just yet. Lots of Mums I know have already weaned, which makes me worry I’m breastfeeding him too long? Is that even possible? I always thought he’d give it up gradually in his own time!
Living Arrows is about celebrating childhood and its trials & tribulations. The project originally took it’s name from a poem by Kahlil Gibran, “You are the bows from which your children as living arrows are sent forth” and each Monday I’m going to share a moment from our week. Over the course of 52 weeks, I’ll have a series of snapshots built up which shows my little boy blossoming!
