Month-iversary

Wheeeee! Did you hear that? It was Time, whistling by overhead. Niamh is a month old already. How did that happen?!

Apart from that odd hazy-vague feeling brought about by a steep decrease in concurrent hours of sleep, I’m doing pretty well. Really well, even.

Apart from a rather unattractive heat rash spreading across her neck and face, Niamh is definitely doing really well. No smiles yet (Finn smiled in the forth week… not that we’re keeping score or anything… !) but I’m sure they’re just around the corner. She’s still largely a peaceful baby, and rapt in her big brother. I captured some magic two days ago:

NiamhStory1
Awake Niamh…

NiamhStory2
plus Storytime with Finn…

NiamhStory3
equals Sleeping Baby 🙂 Hooray!

That actually happened – I am not making it up! Sadly, it is not always so. Tonight, for instance, we are just starting into our third hour of Operation Get-Niamh-To-Sleep-In-The-Cot. And what do you know, she can cry, after all. Quite well, in fact :blank:

So the ability to put together coherent sentences is slowly leaving me… I’ll leave you now with two words. Niamh’s special skill.

Projectile Vomiting 😮

(Finn never even spit-up. You know, not that we’re keeping score or anything!!!)

  1. Aw, Mel, she is so cute. I love the pic of Finn reading to her from what looks like a Hairy McLary book. How very sweet.

    Been there, done that with the projectile vomit. Such fun, not.

    Hugs and cuddles to you all. 🙂

    Also, your friendship exchange arrived safely today. (I would have emailed, but it is acting up). Thank you so much. It is perfect and I love it!! I already have perfect uses for those skeins of thread, too. Thank you!!!

    Your kidlets are just gorgeous Mel……Liam often asks me for a baby brother or sister….I just keep telling him I’ve ordered one but K-Mart never has one in the size I need.
