9 Months in V 9 Months out


Dexter James turned 9 months old earlier this month, a whole 9 months out in the big wide world! It's weird to think how much he has grown in that small amount of time. I know this sounds daft but these past 9 months have flown by much faster than when he was in my tummy. I haven't had him weighed since his eight month check but he has definitely grown because he no longer fits in any 6-9 month clothes.

Bimuno Immunaid Giveaway

Being a parent is no easy job, especially when you're not feeling 100% as I found out last week. I was hit by the dreaded "End of Summer Cold" that always seems to catch me unaware although it happens every year.

According to the weathermen we're in for an Indian summer but I have no doubt that winter is lurking just around the corner and where there's cold weather you'll find all sorts of nasty sickness bugs and germs. Last year I was heavily pregnant during the winter months and somehow managed to avoid any type of bug which I have no doubt means this year there will be double the sickness!

During my pregnancy I was quite concious of my health and that of my unborn child. I wanted to make sure he was getting the very best start in life and so made sure I took supplements that would enhance his growth whilst in my tummy. I have yet to give Dexter any kind of vitamin or pro biotic since birth although I have read a lot about their advantages. We're still breastfeeding at the moment and "fingers crossed" apart from the recent cold neither of us has been ill which makes me think there's something lurking in the not too distant future......cue Bimuno Prebiotics

Time Away From My Blog...........

If you follow my blog you will have noticed that I haven't been around much lately, there are many reasons for this some of which I'm not ready to talk about but things are slowly getting better. I have recently started back at work full time which in itself is a big shock to the system after living in my little baby bubble for 9 months with Dexter. I've been back almost two weeks now and it's starting to settle down although I do still feel like I don't belong, I know things move on and it's great that the business is changing and growing, I just need to realise that there's a bit to catch up on and I can't expect to be back in the swing of things straight away.

Before going back I was a bit worried about Dexter and how he would take to not seeing me for 40+ hours a week but to be honest I needn't have been worried at all. He's doing really well, he spends most of his time with Daddy as his hours have been changed to a more sociable 7am-3pm rather than 9am-11pm. Of course it's less money but at the end of the day spending time with your son is far more important than having material possessions. Whenever Daddy is working Dexter spends time with his grandparents which is great for him and them, we're lucky in that they don't live too far away. I think it's me that has found the whole thing the hardest but I have started doing different activities with him when we're together so I can maintain out bond. We still go to baby swim school on a Monday then last week we started attending another class called "Baby Sensory". I believe they run the classes up and down Britain, I hadn't really heard about it before until an advert popped up on my Facebook so I decided to give it a try. I'll write a post about it shortly for those of you who have yet to learn about this great class.

I'll update you all on Dexter's progress over the next few days, unfortunately today and tomorrow are my longest shifts of the week so no more blogging for me today as it'll more than likely be a midnight finish. I'll catch up with you all soon and I just want to say thank you for bearing with me. I'll be back in the swing of things soon.

Dexters 8 Month Developmental Check


Hi everyone, it's been a while since I've written anything. We've had a really busy summer with plenty to keep us busy - some bad but lots of good. I'm also back at work. I've just finished my ten 'Keeping in touch days' (If you're not sure what they are you can read about them here) and I'm going back to full time next week - you can read more about that in a later post, today is about Dexter and his 8 Month developmental check.
