Braai revelry

My initial eagerness to capture each moment blured slightly as I've been swept from one thing to the next, but as it's my last day at work tomorrow I thought I better catch up before the onslaught of farewells on the weekend (I've got 4 planned, and am quite proud of it!)
With the idea being to put up photo's to ease my melancholy on mud island I guess I'd better get started... Badget had a braai at her house. With her great new garden furniture and a panoramic view that stretches from Lion's head, past his bum and over the harbour (the Waterfront is insignificant, we're talking the WHOLE bay) and of course the larger part of Cape Town's supply of wine we were all set to have a great time!

Enjoying a little coin action...

Badgets kitchen table just lends itself to a quiet game of coinage, where nothing gets out of hand... The braai was great, eating at 22:00 just gets the juices going - the wine flows and the peeping toms come out to play!

Aiding and abetting...

Meebs decided that if you can't beet 'em, join them! After catching some naughty boys paying particular attention to the window that was strategically located above the bathroom she decided to get involved. Not content with the window, things (people) were moved to a higher level.

Hey you!

Think twice before heading for this loo, the toilet police are watching you.

The night continued with a little limbo and its best left to that!

Marking milestones

When Bug was born, well a month or so after, I bought some cards to mark her milestones. Who knew that I should have bought them when I was preggo? So we missed a few photos… But now I find myself attempting to dressing her up for her milestones, only for her to accessorise them with accoutrements such as vomit! Then I jump around, cajoling her into smiling, while hopefully the camera is in focus and I actually press the snap button.  Those photos are all well and good. But I want some real-life photos and babies aren’t renown for their on-cue performances! So how do you actually get that photo of her first tooth?!?  That’s one of the current milestones we’re trying to mark. And she’s not particularly given to opening her mouth wide, unless it’s to cry loudly! I may not be parent of the year, but I’m not about to start taking photos of her mouth while she cries! So, it’ll just have to wait until she smiles for a prolonged period, while I conveniently have the camera to hand! Case in po

4 month sleep regression

I write to you from Hell… just kidding, I’m on the foot stool next to Bug’s bed. Not talking, not touching, just sitting while she lies with her head facing the other way. And every few minutes gives an attempt at a cry.  But at least she’s in her bed! She’s completely refused all naps in her bed so far this week. So this is a major win! I’m talking champagne, the I proper stuff… or at least a really large glass of whatever is open in the fridge.  Now bedtime is the stuff nightmares are made from! Bedtime used to be a pleasant routine, now it’s a panic-inducing labour. I’m pretty sure my blood pressure is through the roof, climbing from approximately 18:00, in anticipation of the dreaded sleep attempts! Last night was an early 22:00ish before she was down. The night before, midnight. And over the weekend, one night her refusals were so adamant that I got a sum total of zero hours sleep. By midnight it was clear the only way she’d sleep was in my arms. So Bug and I got the big bed. She

One good thing about social distancing…

Is that nobody comes too close and I can get away with only half brushing my teeth (no toothpaste, had Bug in my arms and wouldn’t have been able to rinse). And not wearing deodorant (again, the baby!) Also, still wearing some of my pyjamas, semi-disguised  as day clothes… But nobody can really tell cause they can’t get too close! Win! On top of that we had a very successful walk. The dog mostly listened and was easily distracted by treats. Bug slept the whole time and was seemingly nose-blind. And my back pocket doubled up as my coffee cup holder! Hands-free, here we come!  Oh, and because we were out walking for so long - two hours, until it was time for the next feed - the dog is exhausted! He hasn’t been this tired since his play date with best friend Amber! Lucky x
