Never knew how much id hate the sun when i had a kid

Never knew how much id hate the sun when i had a kid

The weather is fabulous, hot hot hot. Normally id be loving it being a bit of a sun worshipper but with a new born its hell!!! 
I cannot keep the poor kid cool. He wont sleep upstairs as its beyond hot.

The gro egg of doom taunts me with its red glow and sad face on a nightly basis at the moment

Dont get me wrong its a brilliant bit of kit but at 3am when the boy wont settle, i can feel it judging me!!! 

To move on from the weather thiugh….

Yesterday was Fathers Day and Mr Me got to celebrate AT LAST.

Little T got him an engraved box with lots of pictures round the side, and a card of course.

Mr Me fancied lunch out so off we went to the Trafford Centre as we were able to control Little Ts temperature somewhat there. Whilst waiting for a lift, a lady asked me if i was behind Confessions of Little Miss PMA!!!! She told me she had been reading for years and recognised us from pictures. Id been spotted. Im famous! I was so taken aback but so so grateful to her. You dont know it but you made our day, so, thank you!! 

We had a lovely lunch and i got my pushing present…

I still cant get my wedding and engagement rings on so this is a place holder until i can. I love it!!! 

Emotionally ive been feeling much more positive. Until this morning when i was knackered due to having 2hrs sleep and Little T just whinging for nearly 2 hours. I couldve broken down next to him. I had no patience so i walked away, made him a bottle, and he eventually fell asleep. I got an hr and a half too which made all the difference. When i woke up i was refreshed and able to deal with grumpy Little T. Its amazing how much brighter things seem when youve got 3.5hrs sleep in your pocket. Even if it is broken. Happy Days.

We have been to baby clinic today, Little T is now 8lb 15oz and finally able to start using the sleeping bags we bought as he kicks off blankets. Of course its now too bloody hot to use such a thing but itll be great when it cools down. Poor lad is currently just sleeping in a vest at night. During the day hes in a nappy under a muslin. Usually hates being naked but thats how hot it is.

The poor fur babies are beyond themselves too.

Splash is camped out by an additonal water bowl and i found Smudge in the bath yesterday!! Id hate to have a fur coat on in this heat!!! 

I definitely feel more confident at this parenting thing, we are getting out almost everyday, it no longer takes an hour just to leave the house. I can read Little Ts cues more easily, hes gaining weight and most importantly ive kept him alive for 5 weeks!!!!

Im still overwhelmed by it all sometimes. Its not how i imagined but i am being rewarded. We think he is close to smiling which will be amazeballs. Its much harder than i imagined. I didnt expect my relationship with Mr Me to change as much as it has either.

We will be going on date night this week just to talk and reconnect. We miss each other for sure and Mr Me did confess he was struggling which actually made me feel oodles better as i thought it was just me. Itll be nice to have one on one time for a few hours to remember we are not just parents. Plus im looking forward to a few cocktails 🍾πŸ₯‚πŸΉπŸΈ

Splash – Update

Splash – Update

For those of you who sent your kind wishes and thoughts for Splash, thank you. The positivity worked!!! 

The x-ray showed an enlarged heart and it seems that is what caused him to be so poorly yesterday.

The vet said he has improved following an anti inflamatory medication and antibiotics. He will be on 2 pills a day for the rest of his life now to inprove blood flow.

We are collecting him later!! I think his brother, Smudge, is really missing him and will be so pleased to see him again. He was looking for him at breakfast and keeps calling for him!

This is Smudge

Splash needs an ultrasound which cant be done at our vet so we will arrange for it to be done wherever it can be done.
Im so so happy he can come home!!! πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†πŸ˜†

As for me, well im SO SO sore following my slip down the stairs. So sore i didnt make it to work today.

At 2ish i managed a bath, my 1st one in about a year. Little Dude seemed to enjoy the warm water. Im not sure it did me much good but it was fun to watch my tummy moving all over the place.

Ive had to give in and ive taken 1 paracetamol with codine and im thinking of taking another soon. I dont take painkillers as a rule so its something i find difficult to do whilst pregnant, but im in pain from my neck down at the moment.

Ive also made lots of lists for the house move, things i need to do and want to buy. Thats rather exciting. 

I need to get on with getting bits for the baby showers, decorations and food etc. because theres only a month to go now!!!

Love, Little Miss PMA xxx
