Mercedes

She Is Growing Up Fast

This past weekend she has learnt to open doors (tall enough if she stands on her toes), given up on day time naps, and discovered mummy doesn't keep gum in her purse anymore but daddy's desk is more fun anyhows.

Toddlers

My 2yr old just stripped off and dived into the dogs water dish. A full body dive too. It was funny!

Did You Know

- that packet cake mix goes further then you actually think it should go
- that troll dollz can cover an entire bathroom with water while being shaken around in the sink
- cut grass doubles as scarecrow stuffing when it is the eldest sister who is a scarecrow
- nothing is safe when a 2 yr old learns how to use chairs to reach high places, especially that spare box of chocolate cake mix

Weaning?

I think bubs (Mercedes) might be weaning herself. She has refused to breastfeed since last friday (Thursday night being the last time). Last night when she woke up during the night, all she wanted was a bottle and a cuddle for a few minutes before drifting off to sleep again. Last night was the best night of sleep I have had in ages. She was also moved back to the nursery last night. Daytime sleeps still avoid us though so we will have to work on those, but with the introduction of the bottle, that should change (I hope).

As for what she has, I think it is hand, foot and mouth disease. It is not related to the animal virus of foot and mouth disease. What she has is a virus which brings up 'spots' on the feet, hands, inside the mouth (hasn't stopped her eating though), torso and groin.

I hope this thing will be over soon.

Rambling : Cold Water Running Hot

If only I could remember the great title I had thought up before bubs yelled for my attention (she is tired but refuses to sleep and I haven't set up her cot back in the nursery). Well, she is still sick, spotty and grumpy, while eating little amounts and not really knowing what she wants. One good thing though, she isn't too big a fan on lollies during this bought of sickness. She prefers watermelon, cherries (real ones) and grapes. She is currently going through my day bag/purse/nappy bag and exploring the blank pages of my drawing book I just bought. With a pencil.

Back to my original idea for a post.
