Tumblus Maximus

my daily life at home with my two little boys!

It’s funny how, when I hear Zac wake up for the 7th time at night, I immediately think, ugggh, I need to fix this bad sleep bullshit.
But when I go into his room and lay down next to him, I forget about it.

All I can think about is how perfectly his little body fits in between the space of my bent knee and my chest. His little arm stretches out and grabs on to my shirt, holding me tight while he searches for his comfort, before drifting back off to sleep.

He won’t always fit here. And one day our breastfeeding relationship will be over.

I hate myself sometimes, especially in these moments, for even thinking about sleep training.
I know that his sleep needs some fixing, he’s completely reliant on nursing to sleep. And wakes up every single sleep cycle, which is hard on both of us.
But I just don’t want to say goodbye to these moments. And if he does ever sleep through the night, not requiring nursing to fall asleep, these moments will stop. And soon he will be too big to fit in the space between my bent knee and my chest. His arms won’t be little. And maybe he won’t need me as much.

They did soccer at playgroup this morning, and Max loved it! He loved the coach and pretty much stuck to him the whole time. Seeing him perform 2-4 step moves (run, jump over obstacle, kick ball into goal etc) was awesome! He really is a smart kid.

8 months!

Kid keeps growing up. The first year goes way too fast!

At 8 months Zac is/has/can etc:

- still breastfed! Woo!
- crawling faster than the speed of light
- standing and starting to surf furniture
- climbing stairs x____x
- has 4 teeth. For biting.
- so cheeky! He loves to be chased and giggles like a mad man when you catch him.
- waving! It’s so cute.

And all that other fun baby stuff like teething, not sleeping perfectly and desiring to be held 24/7… Haha
