Triumphs and rookie mistakes

I'm sure I've said it before but, some days, being able to have a shower feels like a triumph. It really is the small things, so I thought I'd celebrate those and admit to the not-so-great parenting moments, a la Jen Loves Kev.

So, the triumphs this week?
  • surviving the 8-9 week 'wonder week'; you know those weeks where everything you thought you knew goes out the window
  • persisting with the BabyBjorn and actually getting in a walk with his gorgeously chubbsy legs dangling down 
  • my wonderful baby boy sleeping from 8.30pm til 6am (with a midnight dreamfeed in the middle)
  • going back to the drawing board with his feeding schedule and having three feeds in a row without any fussing
The rookie mistakes?

  • freaking out when he pooed in the bath we were sharing. Okay, it's poo, it's gross, but you're in the bath anyway.
  • letting him get his legs close enough to the side of the bathtub that he could kick and then bump his head on the other side
  • sitting bolt upright at 4am and not being able to get back to sleep until I've checked he's still breathing because he hasn't woken up for feed
