We had a special time filled with snuggles and family.
Little Ella has been in a good mood lately, so we're enjoying her lots - she's started making some new baby coo-ing sounds which are just too adorable for words, she loves to smile at us, and she's so content most of the time! Even the night feeds are going so well, she gives me a stretch of about 5 hours the first time, then we're up for about an hour, and then she snoozes another 3-4 hours. Although I usually need to get up halfway through that second stretch to start preparing school lunch box, get dressed, and wake Mia up.
Mia has recovered from all her ailments, including a bout of very bad sleeping last week. She was crying in her sleep, we would have to physically wake her up and resettle her, and it just escalated from 3-4 times a night to 6 times the one night last week! I got some Rescue drops and gave it to her from early evening, and put lavender essential oil in her bath and did a massage for her with some of the lavender drops. It worked, since then she's slept fine, only calling us if she's lost her duvet.
Father's Day was special, my family came to us for a braai. The rest of Sunday was so lazy, first had a snooze on the couch with both girlies, and then we spent the rest of the evening in our room, as it's the warmest place in the house!
Monday morning saw me getting up very early, for my first ever 5km fun-run! Well, fun-walk, rather! I met three of my friends there, and it took us about an hour to walk the 5km, chatting away the whole time, was so nice! Was so chuffed, we received a medal for taking part, it's my first-ever medal in my life! Yay! ;-)
My shins are a bit sore today, but I really enjoyed this and want to try and do it more often. A bit of exercise, a bit of socialising - perfect!
