Is It Just The Baby Blues?

Motherhood

I’ve been pretty much tied to the same four walls for the past month since both my girls have had chicken pox and we’re in the middle of packing up to move house. I’ve done a lot of thinking throughout this case of cabin fever. After feeling continuously lethargic, moody and losing an abnormal (for me) amount of weight; I decided to seek some medical advice “How often are you resting?” The doctor asked me. Well, every time I try to rest I can feel my chest going tight and my heart pounding out of it. “How well do you sleep?” She then asked. Well, I mean besides the broken sleep inbetween feeding Elodie I sleep pretty goo- …Crap.

Elodie’s Four Month Update

Motherhood

Are you loving these updates or are they a bit boring to keep up with? I wrote them every month for Amelie’s first year and I still read them back now on the odd occasion. I also find it so interesting to read other people’s updates to see what other baby’s are doing, how much they weigh, how often they feed. I know all babies are different but it’s just interesting you know? So here’s four month old Elodie in a nutshell…

Elodie’s Three Month Update

Motherhood

So Elodie did actually reach three months old on the 18th but you know… Slacking blogger, busy mum, blah blah blah. I don’t know whether it’s a second baby thing but I’ve got Little E completely wrapped in cotton wool. She’s definitely not as advanced as Amelie was at this age, and I take full blame for that. If keeping her this small was an option, I’d be here for it!

Elodie’s Two Month Update

Motherhood

I can’t believe it’s that time again already! I’m completely embracing these newborn days (is she still a newborn at 2 months? Who knows) because I feel like I spent a lot of time feeling anxious the first time round that I perhaps didn’t enjoy it as much as I’d hoped to. I think Elodie’s second month has greatly revolved around settling into a routine (aka slotting into Amelie’s routine) which is something I was adamant on doing after putting it off (and later regretting it) when we first became parents.
