Tick tock!

Cannot believe my baby is 3 months old! This tee is so predicts her future- Mafia Accountant!

So I've realised having a little bub is such time suckage (in a good way!) I seriously have no idea where my days go...we get up at 8:30am and the next moment its 4:30pm wowsers! I must say I'm totally smitten with this Mum thing though tee hee! So Ross went back to work this week and on Sunday night I got a little scared as Tallulah has been completely spoilt by having both Ross and I home to herself for 3 months, we seriously could not have planned it better hahahaha! I was also a little daunted to how I would cope without Ross but I am pleased as punch to say I absolutely love spending my days with Tallulah! We craft, go for walks to get coffee, watch TMZ (my new obsession haha anyone know how can I get job working for Harvey Levin?) and play, giggle and play some more!

We have joined a Mother's group which is really really great! Its quite a large group of ladies about 15 or so (apparently there has been a baby boom?) and we meet at the park in Mount Lawley which is a 2 minute walk from the house. I look forward to Tuesdays now! I've met some super nice ladies whom I think will become dear friends. I can't say how great it is to have an afternoon spent with a group of new mums and gossip uncensored about babies and being a new mum. Its quite grand!

The last two weeks I have been trying to get Tallulah to take a bottle as I am planning (hoping!) to go back to work part time in about 2 weeks. It has been H-E-L-L! Tallulah has been exclusively breastfed for 3 months (except for the 5 days in hospital when she was born when she had bottles!) and she is refusing all bottles. There have been tears from both Tallulah and me.....but one of the lovely ladies in mothers group said she had the same problem and someone recommended she try a sippy cup. I was dubious but what would you know Baby T actually took it and didn't give me the 'WTF is this foreign object being shoved in my mouth' look she gives me if I try the other 12 different types of bottles I have bought....! It does take about an hour for her to drink 60ml but I am not complaining at least my Mum will be able to feed her when I do go back to work. Fingers crossed she keeps loving it!

Ahhhh the things I worry about now makes me chuckle haha!
