perfect timing hey? mirka's monthly portraits finished up at 24 months, just in time for charlie's to start. our sweet little chumba-wumba is one month old already... and already more than 5kgs. yep, i wasn't just saying chumba-wumba for cuteness. he is out of newborn nappies & has busted out of his triple zero onesies. we are being flashed the occasional gummy smile & he has started making those little pre-talk noises like "ooo" when he is 'talking' to us. our little charlie harper is a real snuggler. we put him to sleep in his cradle, but once he wakes me at night around 2am, he gets to snuggle in with us because he seems to go back to sleep so much quicker. he also seems to sleep really soundly & for much longer if he is hot. really hot.. sleeps the best when he is swaddled, under 2 blankets & with the heater pumping. the husband & i wake up with the covers thrown off & totally parched, but if that's what gets the baby to sleep for hours, then we're not gonna fight it. sleep is king.
