Sleep i need sleep

Now what i want to talk about is sleep or lack of. How come my first born was the calmest baby ever, and went to bed and slept throught the night from 6 weeks old. Now his sister is the complete opposite and age 1 yr and 2 weeks - will not sleep in her cot. She will sleep for an hour and then wake up and put her in bed with me and the zzzzz's begin. It's so not ideal but i am putting up with it cos its a darn sight easier than being woken up every hour. I know I know I should have done it ages ago and she was pretty good until xmas when she was ill and slept in my bed and now i can't break her of it - Easter is crunch time - i have a week off and will persist. I WILL get OH to help too - he doesnt know yet!!! LOL I just told him he has to take some time off for family time - tee hee!!! Well i wont worry about that just yet.....
X-factor with no 1 son this sunday at the o2. Well it seemed like a fab idea at xmas time when i was doing my usual thing of going over the top with presents as we all do and buying that last minute gift whihch cost a fortune - yes we all do it! Now I have reality looming, like the 2 hour drive, the £20 parking fee and the dread of Jedward - OMG that last one is a nightmare awaiting to happen. I am looking forward to having quality time with Fluffy cos he rarely gets mummy and son time these days now that he has a baby monster - i mean sister. SO i know we'll have fun!
Daddy has to look after Doodle all day - yes all day - oh and i forgot to metion to him that he has both of them on saturday too - ahem - well i kinda forgot it was scrap saturday with my friend and tutor Debs - check out her blog Life is beautiful. Very lovely and talented friend.
Well enough of my ramblings tonight - its time to catch a few zzz's myself before doodle wakes up! ......and there she goes as i hear a little wail at the other end of the house - AAAAGHHH!!!!

happy and sad all in one week

First the happy news - Doodlebug reached 1 last saturday (yes i am a bit late in updating!) I cant believe that a whole year has gone by already. End of sterilising bottles - YAY! We had a little family tea party for her and she looked so cute in her party dress. Mummy made yummy cup cakes with creamy swirly pink icing and glitter. I was so proud of them as I am NOT a cook, but I followed the hummingbird bakery recipe book to the letter and the result was yummy! I admit i ate 3 in one day!!!
Its funny how Doodlebug reaching 1 has reminded me of Fluffy when he was younger. Little things come back to me like how he called Elephants ENTER-FANTS and when learning his colours he'd repeat Red - RED, Blue - BLUE, Green - GEEN, Yellow - HMMM
He would never say yellow always Hmmmm. Then tehre was wobbly head - dont ask - it was just funny - guess you had to be there. Anyway the memories are there and its amazing that in 8 years I had forgotten so much. I MUST WRITETHEM ALL DOWN!!
ANother good thing this week, the little one is almost walking - 27 steps tonight and of course she applaudes herself after!
The sad news is we lost our Blizzi -

I cant quite come to terms with it really as it happened so quickly and Fluffy was devastated. He only went to the vet for a check up on his asthma and died as soon as we got there - i think the stress tipped him over the edge. I feel so guilty as since doodle was born, i'd not shown him as much love and attention, but i did love that cat. Fluffy and I bought a rose to put on his grave - a white one in his memory. RIP dear Blizzi.
Might stop doing this blog as cant really imagine anyone wanting to read my ramblings. Might start a journal instead. Need to think about it!
AGH Doodlebug just found my wine!!! She sure love the flavour LOL!
