My beautiful boy playing in his room today. Think he slept too much yesterday. He took a short 20 min nap and refused to sleep and further. Oh well.

1👶+1👶=3👶

Zachary is unwell again. Some sort of respiratory virus I reckon. Started with loose stools, followed by high fever and a slight chesty cough. He has been sick about 20 times in his short 1.5 years of his life :( I tell myself that it's somewhat a good thing because so far, he hasn't been in a serious situation and his body is learning to recognise the viruses. I basically spent the day carrying him in my arms. Thankfully school holidays are over and Sophia is back to school.

Guess what? Zachary who turned 17 months 2 days ago slept through the night twice this week!!! Last night, he slept from about 8.30pm till 8.15am this morning! I woke up this morning before my alarm rang and I felt rested!?! A feeling I have not experienced in a long, long, long time. I even slept late at about 1am but uninterrupted sleep is so restful for the body!!

Help! 4.15pm and he has been awake since 6.15am 😭 even his sister who woke up at 8.30am is asleep :( He dozed off for like 2 mins while nursing. I then put him in the cot and he became wide awake :( I couldn't put him down earlier because the helper was vacuuming his room.

My baby looks so grown up! He is almost 17 months old. So quick! I feel like things are getting slightly easier with him. I usually don't like the Toby (toddler/baby) stage but I feel like we are coming to the tail end of the stage and entering into proper toddler stage :)

random thoughts on self-care

Been thinking about the topic of self-care a lot. I think I've mentioned this a few times but I've been feeling quite burnt out/tired/demotivated the past few months. Maybe since march this year?Im trying to pinpoint the issue - am I physically tired or mentally tired and spiritually dry? Or is it a combination of everything since usually they all go hand in hand.
