On the up!

What a difference a week makes. A week ago yesterday we sat with a crying son who had refused to eat all day and wasn't sleeping too well either. Yesterday evening we sat with a happy Oliver as he ate his dinner before he went to bed awake and contented before sleeping through the night.

So what has changed?

It's hard to say what has caused the improvement for sure. He has eaten home cooked food all week, but that was on offer last week too. He hasn't had a dummy for over a week now. Maybe he has got the knack of that and it has helped him to sleep.

Whatever the cause, it's a great change for all three of us.

When I got back from my morning bike ride I found Hayley and Oliver sitting on a picnic blanket in the garden. Oliver was happily eating his lunch. When he had finished the two of them played and giggled on the blanket while I filmed them with the camera. (I love to get his laughter on film - he's just so cute.) They were idyllic moments. May there be many, many more!
