Well we didn’t have a good night last night. Little Miss started stirring at 4am so I got up to change her. Hubby woke up and was wide awake so I asked him to prepare a bottle. He decided to feed her since he was awake. It takes a while to feed her because she needs a pit stop because of the wind. I went back to sleep for a bit but she wouldn’t settle so I didn’t sleep for long. I asked hubby if he wanted me to take her so he could go back to sleep. He was stubborn and decided that he would take her to the nursery and sleep with her in there.
Needless to say that didn’t work and he got annoyed. I can’t remember what time her came back through but I ended up in the nursery with her. It took a while but after I changed her (again!) she fell asleep in my arms. I put her back in the Moses basket at which point she started stirring again. The bed in the nursery is higher than our main bed so I could lie in bed and be able to hold her hand – or more to the point she could grasp my finger with her hand. She seemed to calm down and eventually settled. I know it was past 6am because I heard the bin men outside. Also my diary entry is timed at 6.13am.
I stayed in the nursery with her and we both slept. Hubby came in at 8am to say he was leaving for work. Little Miss and I stayed in bed for another hour or so until my Mam got up. Mam took Little Miss whilst I had a shower. So I was feeling refreshed and managed to settle Little Miss down. I even managed to eat lunch in peace!
Whilst she was sleeping I went to the kitchen to start on food. I put the baby monitor on the counter and switched the radio on. I loved listening to Real Radio on the way home from work. Jason Harrold does the home time slot and I love him! He always reads out my text messages! Since being off I haven’t been able to tune in so it was nice to listen this evening. I texted in to say I was listening again and he read it out and said it was nice to have me back! Hubby heard it in the car on the way home as well!
And this was the food hubby was treated to – home made bacon and veg risotto. It had broccoli, courgettes, onion, mushroom and bacon in it. Served with poppadoms!
