Happy 8 and half months to miss Lilith.
This month she has:
Started wearing proper clothes
Understands where daddy is and where insert cats name here
Understands up, bye bye, snack, bath time, baby einstein
Can high five
Can do kisses (open mouth though yuck!)
Is starting to pull herself up

We also got her first shoes this month and she has her very first tooth! Eeek!
I am officially a sty at home mum, I quit my job this week and will find a new job when we move house next year — need more room! Also we have decided to try for baby number 2 next August! Crazy eh? When we said we didn’t want anymore we love having lil that we want one more
I take my theory test again on Wednesday next week very nervous, must pass my driving test ASAP!
Other than that no much happening apart from enjoying the sunshine

Happy 7 months to my little babe, can’t believe she is already 7 months — feels like I just blinked and now she’s a little madam — full of personality — loud I’ve never known for a baby to be so lou
Ive just been finding ways to entertain her and get her on a schedule for naps and bedtime, we have the bedtime routine in but she is still waking in the night normally twice a night.
Lately she has learnt to sit unaided, copying, eating solid food with bits and is able to put her dummy back in. No further on crawling she’s just not interested being on her tummy.
Me on the other hand still on anti ds and still suffering from anxiety, it feels never ending I know it will do I just need to be kind to myself. Just this is hard as everyone always comes before me, I’m trying to rest and have decided to take the rest of the year of with Lilith, we can afford it by dropping our mortgage and help of benefits plus savings.
I’m away be next week with lil to my dads in scottyland, it’s a big thing for me as I will be alone with lil on the plane I’m really scared but excited to see my dad & family.

Oh joys Lilith is in the whining mood due to teething — she whines about everything at the moment, she’s trying to attack my iPad as I write this because she doesn’t think it’s fair that I can use this and she can’t.
Lilith is getting good at sitting we are so close to being able to do it on her own she can sit for 15 seconds without being distracted.
I had an anxiety attack this morning which took me by surprise as I thought I was getting better minus still not being able to use public transport, sigh, it was all over going to town with my mum in the morning but mornings lil and I always get up at 6am to do the husbands pack lunch, he leaves at 7:30am and lil & I nap at 8:30/9am till 11am. The idea of not following this freaks me out, I think because babies need routine or in my case it all breaks down, I am so strict on our routine, nap times, feeding times and bed times.
Lucky my mum understands. So we are going to town in the afternoon.
I would write more but Lilith is being a grumpy mare

With parenthood I spent the first two months of lils life feeling guilty, feeling guilty I couldn’t breast feed who need a horrific birth and PCOS causes milk issues, guilty I didn’t use cloth nappies, guilty I didn’t baby wear (turns out my back is messed up from the labour so good job I didn’t), guilty about having depression, guilty about having anxiety attacks. The list goes on and on.
What is it about parenthood especially motherhood that makes you feel guilty for not doing it the way you thought you would? I guess comparing yourself to other mums doesn’t help, I see mums doing it the way I thought I would and I get a guilt feeling arising but now I’ve learnt to accept all babies are different.
My midwife gave me the best advice “what does it matter what you are feeding her as long as she’s being fed”
I’m happy with my choices now, I’m glad I formula fed, didn’t change my relationship with my daughter, I’m glad I co-slept with her for the first 6 weeks didn’t change her sleeping now. I guess I am ruled by my 5 month old, she’s a happy little girl who is growing so quickly I just need to accept in future my choices will be different to others but it doesn’t make them incorrect.
Are your choices after having a baby different from before you had the baby?
Okay my rambling done back to napping — favourite past time!

Really need to change my layout but I am far too lazy to do so, maybe in the next month or so I am bored of seeing this one now.
Hope everyone had a fantastic Christmas! We had a lovely time, Lil got loads of nice presents, and we went up to Scotty-land which was great, my dad, sisters, stepmum and grandma loved Lil she was on good form — slept well while we were up there which surprised me because I thought she would be a bugger, and she was good on the plane, so that boosted my confidence to go up on my own with her in April, eeek!
Other than that I have been going out once a week with my brother and his friend to enjoy the open mic night which has some really amazing singers on it, I got an ipad which I love! and we brought a new sofa for our living room but have to wait up to 12 weeks for it!
Weaning has been going well — Lil loves her food just like her mother, ha ha! Can’t believe she is already 5 months, I have just finished my next lot of CBT so am on a break for 6 weeks but carrying on with my anti ds — I feel like I am getting better each day but it is a slow progress and I knew this when I started on them.
I’d better go babe is up and I want to see if I can get my wordpress linked to my ipad
