Rolling, Rolling, Rolling…

Less than three weeks ago, I can clearly remember the beginnings of my fear, or apprehension that Elvis was never going to learn to roll over. It just never seemed on his mind. After learning to sit unaided at 4 months, lying down was a position that he just never really wanted to be in. It was also just after he turned 4 months and learnt to sit that we moved him into his cot, giving him far more freedom to move.

And of course, he would be put down on his back on his playmat for short periods, he still showed no signs of rolling!

I was starting to worry (only because everything tells you when each baby should learn to do everything).

Then he suddenly did it! I was so immensely excited.

Now, I hate that he can roll!

Driving Away in A Big Black Cab

Okay so actually the taxi wasn’t black.

It wasn’t a big taxi cab either, just a regular taxi. And it did drive me away last night.

At 10pm, after Elvis’ dream feed, I called a taxi and left.

Proud Parent!

Elvis is almost 25 weeks old and is so close to 6 months! He’s become this cheeky, smiley, mainly happy baby boy.

Yesterday as I was trying to get him to take his first nap, I thought he’d fallen asleep as his room went quiet.

Nope, he’d rolled over.

He did it 5 times in total. The little scamp!

Saddle the Horses

It’s been 4 full days since starting our new breastfeeding position and it’s going pretty well.

My bottle envy and disheartened feelings toward breastfeeding are passing and it’s all down to the lovely lady from the BFN who spoke to me for an hour last Saturday.

I’m sure the saddle hold will see past the 6 month milestone and hopefully longer.

Mummy Update

Having a quick look at the last posts before I vanished from the blogosphere, we were just starting to stop our bedsharing habit.

I have to admit that the changes in every part of our lives since the beginning of August are so immense that I wish I’d continued blogging over the past 3 months. Hopefully I have been keeping my diary up to date so I have a record of everything!

Bottle Envy

I actually slept last night. 5 or 6 solid hours, but even if they’d been in chunks it’d have been more than the 2 nights prior.

Part of my huge down mood for the past two weeks has been due to something I call bottle envy.

Is that a common term other mummy bloggers have heard of? Or used yourself?

Breastfeeding mummies, have you bottle envy?

Bottlefeeding mummies, have you booby envy?
