Although a somewhat hectic one!!!
I'm starting a new journal... It'll mainly be about our family, what we're upto, my inane ravings about how everyone annoys the Hell out of me!!! LMAO
Anyway, I would do an introduction post but I just don't feel like it. And seeing as this journal is for me then I know all about us anyway!!!! Mwahahahaha
So, just to start and so I don't forget... Lacey-Rose was born on the 17th of August. I was most miffed as my birthday is the 18th and I'd predicted all through my pregnancy that I would go into labour on the 17th and give birth in the early hours of the 18th... Well, instead I went into labour in the early hours of the 17th and gave birth that morning. Damn - how couldI have been so wrong?!!!!! LOL
Her cord came away at 4 days old.
Lacey-Rose had her check-up with the GP at 7 days old, on Friday the 24th... We saw my Dad that weekend, my MIL on Bank Holiday Monday and the Health visitor on 29th.
Breastfeeding is nigh on killing me right now... I spend every feed wishing I would just give in and give her a bottle and be happy, but I won't cos I said I'd make 6 months this time and I intend to if it kills me. Which at this rate it probably will!
The boys adore Lacey-Rose... Only problem is they adore her so much they're now bugging me for another little sister... Cos "you can't have just one girl". I think though that I'm the opposite of my Gran... She had four girls, a boy, then two more girls.... I think if I had anymore children they'd be boys as I've had four boys, then a girl... I draw the line at two more children though. No way!!!! I'm happy to have one more, but not two!!! Infact we've been talking about when to have baby #6 already but we can't decide. I dislike being pregnant as I have so many health problems so I'd quite like a long gap now... But then it seems a shame cos so far my children have been born in the following years... 2001, 2002, 2004, 2005, 2007.... See the pattern here?!!!!!! LOL I have decided I'm going to have an October baby next though!!!! And I don't care what we have next time, although the boys would like another sister.
It's mine and Martin's 7th Anniversary today... We aren't doing anything. Haven't even exchanged cards or anything! We're going to our friend, Simon's wedding reception later tonight so that will be fun. Unfortunately things didn't go as planned for us (they never do these days) and the cute outfits I wanted all of us to wear didn't happen because Martin "lost" £300. Well, he didn't loose it as such, he put it in his account and the car finance company stole it so we're penniless again. I say they stole it because Martin gave them his card details to make last months payments and without his permission they kept the details and just took the money out of his account again this month without informing or asking us at all. I'm pretty sure they aren't allowed to do that.....
Anyway... I need to go give my kids a bath. Oh wait, Martin's just said he'll do it. Oh but Piglett has just woken up an is demanding a feed. Joy!!!!
HAPPY 7TH ANNIVERSARY MARTIN!!!!
