Hope 2017 is treating you well.
The last month or so has been crazy for us. Just before Xmas Evelyn fell ill and on Christmas day her temperature rocketed so we took her to the doctors at out of hours and then were refereed to the pediatric day assessment unit at the hospital. To cut a long day short it turned out that she has a respiratory infection and tonsillitis. Except for during the first few weeks after Evelyn was born I’m not sure I had felt so needed. A couple of days before going to the doctors Evelyn started to stop eating solids and also wouldn’t take expressed milk from a bottle; this meant she was feeding like a newborn again…
Dear Evelyn, So I was just getting used to the idea of leaving you with your Dad whilst I start back to work and then all of a sudden this changes.

However I also thought to myself that I couldn’t be pregnant as I’d already had a negative test 3 weeks…… Continue reading A year ago today
So Monday of this week started well but for about the 4th week my Daughter, who is 9 weeks old, was just not happy. It didn’t matter matter what we did she was just not happy – struggling to sleep, not feeding so well and very upset. Now I am convinced than she is either…… Continue reading Why does my daughter not like Mondays?
Yesterday was a bit of a crap day. It just felt like everyone was questioning me as a mum – of course they weren’t but it felt like they were. On top of this Evelyn (our 9 week old) was a bit out of sorts. One good thing did happen yesterday though me and my…… Continue reading A lovely start to the week
