Alive and Well

After this much time you must be wondering, however my boy and I are alive and well.  I had my mum visiting for a month and have been recovering from it since she left.  And now for some reason the internet isn’t working at home, so I have to either compose things with my thumb on my phone or steal the internet from cafes – as I am now.

My boy is over 6 months old.  I don’t know how.  He’s a darling.  He chatters.  He kicks.  He loves standing (with assistance – he’s pretty good at it but looses concentration).  He LOVES bouncing.  He’s a winter baby and HATES heat. Right now it’s a summer day in Hobart.  I’m parked near the wharves, my son is asleep in his car seat, my husband has delivered a coffee to me, and Weird Al is playing.  Life isn’t bad.

I’m exhausted.  I miss my newborn.  I’m still pumping exclusively.  I check on my son’s breathing three times a night.  But despite my greatest fears my boy is alive and well and to be honest I’m not a bad mum.
