Right now, Benedict is asleep and I’m taking a few moments. Of course a few moments frequently turn into midnight, when I finally wind down enough to sleep :D. But he’s teething and it’s been a rough day for him. All round really with crying/whining for 12 hours. So bad. He’s been up three times already too. Poor baby. And tired mummy. Especially as right now there is no sound on my baby monitor. I only bought it about 4-5 months ago, brand new. And it cost me a fortune (well a fortune for me) and then the sound died (nothing to do with my Benedict constantly grabbing and throwing it of course). So I have to watch him constantly, I have picture, but it’s hard to always be staring at him and sometimes I miss him wake up and cry. It also means I can’t nap if I need to. Stupid monitor.
I could send it back of course, but that I have mummy brain and NO idea where on earth I even bought it from. Hours of internet searching, paypal scrolling, email delving and bank statement reading later and I still have no idea. None at all. So unless I’m willing to pay Motorola to fix something which is still in the warranty, then i’m pooed. Yep, Pooed.
On a much more exciting note. I won a Nexus 7! I never win anything. I literally can’t think of anything I’ve won before this. So I was thrilled and amazed and astounded when the kitkat told me I’d won. It was enter kitkat code, look confused, whoop for joy. I love my nexus. It’s great. Maybe I’ll even manage more blog posts. Who knows? It’s certainly not the kind of thing I’d ever normally buy.
I also managed to finish knitting something. I started this when I was pregnant with Benedict. Took a hiatus until recently and finished it in a whirlwind for winter. It’s so warm, that when he wore it last, he actually got a little too hot, even though he was outside in the cold.
Favourite Wrap of the month is…my firespiral. Ok, I only actually own two wraps and an ergo, I sold my first ever wrap to pay for this wrap, my other wrap is a little bigger, and better for longer carries, but my firespiral… Oh i love it. It’s a starmap. And the fabric is so soft and snuggly warm.
Benedict was actually snuggling it today in the car. Soft, yet it’s very supportive too, not diggy at all. It’s important as I don’t ever use the pram, I wear Benedict everywhere: dog walking, shopping, just cooking, etc, so it has to be really comfortable for me. Sometimes I prefer to wear him on my back, especially when dog walking if the ground is uneven. He’s so big I find it hard to see properly. But I’ve not quite mastered the back carry yet and we can end up a little bit uneven by the end.
I’ve been trying to get the house more organized because Benedict is into everything, and I don’t like him digging out all manner of random things from underneath furniture! I’ve also been thinking of what to do for him for Christmas and birthday. He doesn’t really like toys..not that much anyway. Sometimes he will stack his rings. Which he is very good at.
and he likes to put the rings on other things and put his plastic balls through the rings and put things in the stacking cups. But mainly he prefers to browse the room getting into mischief. So I’m thinking of less toy toys and more versatile toys.. So not too many electronic gadgety things, more stacking, building, rolling games and puzzles. Mind you, he plays with so few toys, I could just wrap up some toys he hasn’t used in ages and he wouldn’t know the difference. Haha! Not that I would.
I should go to bed, it is well past my bedtime again.
If there is spelling or grammar mistakes in this, or just poor writing, then I apologize. One tired mummy here! Off to bed for my 6am wake up.
