Oliver and I had a day at home today. I didn’t feel great still and it was overcast and muggy outside so I thought we’d have a day doing drawing, watching films and playing with his toys.
We had our breakfast, played with Oliver’s shape sorter (he is doing so well with it now) and practised animal noises. He does the cutest lion impression – it melts my heart every time.
We sat down at our dining table to have a snack and little monster decided he wanted to do some drawing. I don’t think I’ve ever heard “that” and “get it” so many times! I’m glad he takes after me and loves art – I can’t wait until he’s a bit older so we can make things together.
The one on the left says “My name is Oliver” with Peppa Pig stickers he chose, googly eyes and beautiful scribbles and the one on the right says “Happy Birthday” for a family member. We won’t talk about the art work on the table and my top.
Thankfully today Oliver’s eating was MUCH better. He ate all of his tuna sandwich, he hasn’t wanted bread or tuna recently so that was great news and ate all of his fruit. I think the issues we were having were teething related, he’s now dribbling like a trooper and I can feel another back tooth coming through – damn you teeth, hurting my baby.
After lunch we cuddled up on the sofa and watched Bee Movie together, to my surprise he actually sat through the whole thing transfixed to the TV!
Truthfully, it was a slow, cosy day. We plodded along and kind of done things when we wanted to do them with no pressure of having to do anything, I think we both needed it as I feel 100% less stressed this evening. I’m usually the kind of person that HAS to do every thing right that moment or I feel like a failure, I need to stop putting so much pressure on myself and take things slowly.
I hope you’ve all had a good day! You all deserve it.
Thanks for reading!
