On the 29th of July I turned 34, or as I like to call it 29 for the 6th time and I still wanted to do a blog post about life in the mid-thirties, but now we’re 3 weeks down the line and I still have not gotten around to it. So it looks like it might just have to wait for my 35th ;). Just going to say it was a good day and hubby spoiled me with a new Kenwood Cake mixer, Jamie with a box of choccies and I baked myself a carrot birthday cake, yum!
Talking about aging little Miss Shae turned 11 weeks today. We took her for her 10 week vaccinations last week and she now weighs 5 kg on the dot and her length is at 59 cm. She’s really petite and about a kilo lighter than what Jamie was at this stage. She started to play with her rattles and can now grasp an object and bring it to her mouth to suck on. We’re doing lots of tummy time, but she does nog like it at all. She is strong though, sometimes when on her back she lifts her head and shoulders up, almost like she wants to come in a sitting position. She really is a cute little darling, can’t stop kissing and cuddling her.
Jamie is doing well, almost a month since we celebrated his 4th birthday. He started writing his name now and recognizes various letters from the alphabet. His vocabulary literally exploded. Very often hubby and I just look in amazement at each other after he says some new, clever words or quirks. 5 More months until Grade 0… It’s going to be bittersweet. Unfortunately a lot of anger outbursts from him at this stage, he gets angry very easily and have an explosive personality, so that’s a bit hard at the moment. He gets lots of individual attention and adores his sister and never shows jealousy, so I don’t think her arrival is the cause of it though.
On Saturday I took him to the movies for a special mom and son date. We watched How to train your dragon 2 as he is a huge fan. Was fun munching popcorn with him, it was a nice outing, but I’m just thankful we went to the early morning screening and there were only 2 other groups of people, cause my boy can’t sit still for a whole movie yet. Oh I almost forgot: he dressed in a Ninja Turtles shirt, a Superman Cape and Dinosaur feet. Haha we got a lot of stares!
