Babes in the park

Once again Sam and I went to Piedmont Park for our Monday morning mummy meet up. Today there were six mums and their babies taking a group stroll around the grounds and ending up finding some shade near the playground for some baby time and chatting.

Of course, as usual I got Sam dressed up as lovely as could be, but today I was especially pleased with myself because he wore an outfit I made for him this weekend.

After the mum’s group on Thursday I wandered over to the nearby Hancock’s Fabrics and couldn’t resist buying some cheap cotton jersey to play with. Back at home I took one of my favourite baby rompers and decided to make a slightly bigger version using that as a guide. I then had a bit of trouble with the sewing machine and started to sew my little creation by hand when Bill caught me. On Sunday we went shopping and Bill decided to treat me to a new sewing machine. It’s lovely, I’ve never had a machine with so many stitches. Mine, all mine! *squeal!*

So, the little romper you can see Sam modeling in this photo is my first little creation, hopefully there will be many more to come.

After our walk in the park we went to Willy’s to grab some lunch but then my appetite suddenly vanished. I’d been feeling somewhat spaced and I kept having conversations where I was finding it really difficult to follow what was being said and just feeling odd. When I got home I fed Sam, put him in his cot and then climbed into bed myself for a nap. This nap turned into a three hour deep sleep where I totally zonked out and was barely able to move. My head was throbbing, though not really achey and my hands were doing that odd sensation where they go numb, feel really heavy and seem to pin me to the bed. I remember the phone rang a couple of times and I just had to ignore it. Thankfully Sam was peaceful and slept the entire time too. Not sure what I’d have been like if he’d been awake and needing attention. I was eventually startled awake by Bill arriving home and appearing in the bedroom. I’ve been feeling a bit weird lately, maybe I’m just experiencing some baby adjustment, or need to remember to take my multivitamins more often, but I’ve decided to make an appointment to see a doctor just in case.

    Sam is looking adorable as usual, good job on the romper.
    I am jealous of your sewing machine as I have wanted one for ages, not that I would know how to use it but I would like to have a play and attempt to make some curtains.
    Not good to hear that you arent well, maybe you just need a nice big steak? How about you come round this weekend for a barbie?

    Hope your feeling better soon. HUGS
