7 Month Postpartum / Baby Update!


 I'm feeling pretty good about my weight this month, it's coming off slowly. I've felt a little more confident although I'm nowhere near where I want to be - but that's okay.. I know I'll get there eventually. Still trying to go for walks in the morning and afternoon. It's hard at the moment though as it's such a busy time of year! I've gone off the gym, I just want to be outside in the fresh air! So walking is pretty much the only exercise I'm getting at the moment. I'm 1.3kg/ 2.8lbs lighter than last month - woohoo! I'm pretty happy with that. I just hope I can keep it off over Christmas! 


Ohhh he's getting heavy! He's now 9.1kg/ 20lbs! His height is still 70cms.

Yaaay we've successfully transitioned out his 11am feed! Now if only he would drop his 10pm dream feed..

Wakeup, Feed James
Have Breakfast then Give James Solids
Play with James, Moisturise and Dress James
Go for a walk, James Naps
Have a Shower and Get Ready while James plays in his Jumperoo
Do Laundry & Housework while James does Tummy Time
Give James Solids
James Naps, Have Lunch, Blog/Relax/Go Out
Feed James, Play with Him (Tummy Time, Reading, Standing/Sitting etc)
Blog/Relax while James has a rest in his Bouncer
Give James SolidsRob gets home from work & plays with James
Cook Dinner
Rob Baths James
Have Dinner, Go for a walk, James Sleeps
Put James to Bed, Relax
Feed James, James Sleeps, Go to Bed


His sleeping hasn't been great this month :( I think it's because he's been teething and also having separation anxiety. Which means we're getting up once or twice at night.. hopefully his sleep goes back to normal soon!

His feeding has been great! Like I said, we've cut out his 11am breastfeed (we're down to 4 a day) and he's now on 3 solid meals a day. We've started giving him a lot more finger foods like toast fingers (with vegemite) and cut up fruit/veggies. I've had to give him a few store bought puree's (which he loved) but mostly he's just been having home-cooked meals. 


He's still in size 0 (6-12 months) although I find in some brands he needs to go up to a size 1 :O. He's still in cloth nappies and size crawler disposable nappies.

James had his first little toothie pop through this month (which is all fun and games until someone - aka me - gets hurt haha). He's also sitting like a champ and rarely falls anymore. He's definitely trying to crawl, although he always ends up rolling over which frustrates him. He is THIS close to rolling from his back to his tummy but he hasn't quite got there yet. He's also starting singing "lalala" and starting mumbling what sounds like "hello" - so cute! He loves grabbing faces (as you can see below) and doesn't realise how strong he is. He's just such a sweet and cheeky little boy, I love him so much that sometimes I feel like my heart is going to burst! I'm enjoying every second of being his mummy.

It's Beginning to look a lot like Christmas...

I'm so excited for Christmas this year as it will be James' first Christmas! So excited, in fact, that I started decorated the house in November! Whoopsies.

I love listening to Christmas Carols (Michael Buble is my fave) while putting up and decorating the Christmas tree. It was so cute this year having James there with me while I sang along and danced around.. he thought it was hilarious!

I don't go too overboard with decorations, I just add a few bits and bobs here n' there to make the house feel Christmasy. One of my favourite things to do is put fairy lights around the outside of our house (they are so festive and romantic).

Some of the other decorations we have up this year..
