Little monkey

I was pretty spoiled with Oliver and Jonty, especially Jonty who at 6 wks was sleeping 12 hours a night. Yep pretty spoiled!!! This little monkey feeds every 3hrs and after doing a couple of 6 hrs at night, has reverted back to every 3-4.5 hrs at night. Did I say I was spoiled with Jonty?? ;)
Flynn hates his cot. He will sleep in it at night but during the day he won't sleep unless someone is holding him. So if I had a wet nurse of sorts, one that just followed me around holding him all day, that would be great. I have a sling but it's hard to wear that ALL the time. Maybe he is a kangaroo baby because he loves to snuggle into whoever is holding him and sleeps quite peacefully but as soon as you put him down, bam, he is awake and protests really loudly. He is still getting used to being stuck in his car seat so when he starts protesting, this is how Jonty reacts...........

The other day Simon had the idea of putting him in the chair sitting up on his tummy to see if he would sleep. All I could laugh at was his big nappy butt sticking up in the air. But hey it worked for a bit.



So I need to remember that they don't stay babies for long and be content to nestle in on the couch with him and watch him while he sleeps instead of worrying about everything that is not getting done. :) Cheeky little monkey!!

Meanwhile Simon is away training some new search and rescue recruits and sent some photos of them abseiling at Coles Bay. The scenery from up there looks breath-taking.



Simon keeps offering to take me abseiling. The jury is still out on that one.

oh he is sooooo cute! I love the pic of you and him together. The time does go so fast hey. It won't be long before he is in a good routine and you would've forgotten about the days of carrying him around in the pouch.

You should go abseiling, although probably not down those massive cliffs! Just start with something a bit tamer! :)

oh Simone - its so hard hey! all I can say is eat lots of chocolate to give you some energy!! Jack is 5 months and not in any kind of routine - he just loves company waaay too much - though he will sleep on his own now - so there is jhope!! Must be the boys of this round of triffitts - pretty sure Hugh is not overly keen on sleeping either!!

As for abseiling - its so much FUN you should def do it!! Oh Jonty sounds like the perfect baby!!!
and Flynn is ADORABLE!!

p.s I read your post about Nan and charlotte - it was beautiful.xx
