At the end of last week I started feeling ill and I was worried it was going to descend into a virus or the flu because I felt so awful. I lost my voice, felt shivery, achy and sweaty, had really sore eyes and my head was completely congested. Thankfully on Saturday afternoon I started feeling much better and I was so relieved. I’ve definitely had a few ‘mad moments’ this week with the three of them – Otto is getting far more wakeful.
This photo displays their roles perfectly – Ru constantly draped over Otto, and Winston doing a ‘show and tell’.
W: My favourite line from Win this week: “Mum, do you want to come in the bath with us? Neither of us have wee’d in it.” Needless to say, I declined his kind offer.
R: Ru’s ‘no stage’ has been a bit wearing this week. He says no, even if he means yes and it has been quite frustrating at times. He is either the happiest child ever, or upset and angry with everything. Teeth cleaning and nappy changing are two total nightmares! On the plus side he always completely adores Otto.
O: Even though O is my third baby – there is still so much guesswork involved with a newborn. He weighed just over 10lbs on Friday, so I have finally managed to get him back to his birth weight. I’m taking full credit for that one!
