Chaos central

The gardeners are in sprucing up our garden and putting up a shed, and M's been stripping and re-wallpapering the nursery as we want to transition Little Planet into her own cot and room in a few weeks. So there are alot of loud men and loud noises clattering through our home. Little Planet is fussing more whilst feeding. And it's so noisy that all her daytime naps have been disrupted, so I have to wheel her around the neighbourhood to encourage her to sleep. Yesterday, I wheeled her for a total of four hours - two and a half hours in one go - and I can't stop moving otherwise she wakes up. The positive? She's less grouchy because she's napped reasonably well, and I get a shed load of exercise. Luckily her night time sleep is still good. She has been sleeping through from 6.30 through 7 for some time now and we only have to wake her for the 11pm feed. Until we can get more calories into her during the day, we will have to continue the 11pm feed, which is a shame as I'd rather we didn't have to wake her. Hopefully when she starts solids in a month or two...

Little Planet will be 3 months old in two days.

Isn't it raining in your neck of the woods?

My mother is continually complaining about wearing cardigans every day, and here I am in shorts and a t-shirt.

Yes, I was out in the puring rain for 4 hours :-( The things us mums do for the sake of our children :-)
