I haven’t been very active on here lately as life with two little ones has been a bit overwhelming in the last week or so.
I attempted my first day of leaving Matt with both babies so I could go to work. Wow that didn’t go well!
Before I even came down stairs for a cup of tea, Matt left Noah and winnie at the table to make some toast. Within a few minutes I hear a bang…then a scream… Then Matt shouting “Jess come downstairs quick, help”. It was like a horror film scream for help and made my already very high anxiety go through the room and made me feel sick. I came down to a lot of blood coming from Winnie’s mouth. Noah had been climbing on her high chair and had pulled it over and she hit her face pretty hard on the table. O my God the blood!
We took her to the doctors to be told she will most probably need stitches to the cut on her lip so to head to A and E. It was terrifying, at first we were told they would need to knock her out to do the stitches. I did not want my very nearly 1 year old to have anesthetic 😭.
Thankfully they agreed it would possibly cause the cut to be bigger if they used a needle to decided to put a sticky strip across it instead, this lasted all of about 6-8 steps down the corridor before she liked it and it fell off. Amazingly the next day it looked brilliant and you would never have known how bad it was the day before. I happen to think it is because she is having milk all night at the moment and boobie milk heals everything!
Then the day before winnie’s 1st birthday, me and her both get ill with a wonderful all consuming cold and sore throat. We still have it nearly a week later, this means that we have had no sleep, I’ve had “mama mama” cried at me for pretty much 23 hours a day, I haven’t been able to go to work and I haven’t had any time to let myself feel better. Paracetamol, ibuprofen and a throat spray have become my best friends 😦
This morning atleast I have managed to put her infront of baby TV and she is eating sugar free Maria biscuits so I can express some milk for her (hoping I am able to go to work later).
On top of this Noah has noticed that winnie is getting all the attention so is now being more of monkey than usual. Even wanting mummy milk! He cried “mama” just like winnie and I had to let him have some. It was not the nicest feeling but it made him feel more involved I think so that’s worth it. I am very much hoping it was a one off!!
