its been almost a month since my last post, and there is SO much to tell! please forgive me for ignoring you, but time is not on my side these days…
so lets start lol!
little M is such a big boy, turned nine months last thursday already! cant believe, already started planning his first birthday. rite. he has three teeth now – two fronts on the bottom, and one canine on top right. yes, a canine. and the left side is also sprouting. no teeth inbetween though. eish.
he is trying to walk with a passion – pushing around everything in the house and walking behind it, he can go for lengths at a time without an interruption. he crawls ‘right’ now, on both knees. but when he wants to move quickly, still uses only one knee. te oulik!
think he’s allergic to banana – gave him some mashed up twice, and he threw up. gave him pap with banana – no sleep for almost a week. changed the pap – blissfull sleep! haha, takes after his mommy with that one – i really hate banana. dont even eat a banana sweetie.
on the allergies front, we are back where we started it would seem. according to the doc, he has ‘allergic rhinitus’ – because of allergies (to goodness knows what!) his ‘snotkliere’ are packing up, giving him a type of sinus drip and making his chest wheezy and scratchy, making him bark cough like mad and then throw up. so he’s on telfast syrup now, for two weeks (started on monday) to see if it makes a difference. if not, he’s back to the doc’s cos he doesnt want little M starting out the winter like this. i felt so sorry for our boy, i cried my eyes out while he was screaming and there was nothing i gave him that made him feel better. three nites in a row. even hubby had a hard time keeping his composure! but little M will grow up, and this too shall pass. i believe, in any case!
on easter weekend he fell over hubby’s welder – HUGE bruise on his thigh! a bloukol almost as big and long as my index finger. i was in another room, and just heard the ‘bang’ and then that deadquiet before he started screaming his lungs out – more of a fright as well, he fell over the welder face first. never knew i could run so fast or our house seemed so big! hubby was there with him, and as little M is standing against everything he thought nothing of it. then little M started swinging the welder back and forth, and that’s when it happened. ai.
haha, little M started shaking his head – for no apparent reason. he’ll just sit and watch you, and then start moving his head from side to side. when he does it, i say ‘nee nee nee’ while shaking my head as well, making it a speletjie, and he loves it! has got such a beautiful laugh, our little one
so we moved him to the new school, and he loves it! was supposed to still be two weeks at the old school (month’s notice and all) but i talked to the owner and she said its fine, we can move. ’she has a waiting list’, so it wont bother if he’s not there. real nice about the whole thing, actually. little M just couldnt get hold on his new juffrou, although she is lovely with the kids. four days i had to give him to the help, and once she moved into another room with him so that i could leave. so we changed and i’m so glad! i wasnt sure, cried when i dropped him off the first day but when i went to fetch him, i felt relieved and at peace. it was the right decision. his old juffrou sent me a sms at about 11am to say that he watches her like a hawk – if she moves, he moves as well! checking to see if she’ll leave him again. heartmelting.
and now, when he was so sick since last thursday, over the weekend until yesterday, it was proven again that we did the rite thing. on monday he cried for his juffrou, i couldnt take him from her. didnt want me at all – got mil in the pharmacy, and when little M saw her it was tickets – just wanted his ouma. funny thing is, his juffrou is actually not his – she is in another class, but since she is so good with him he has ‘special privileges’
so i’m fine now with the school. cuzzie’s little boy also moved there (he got hidings TWICE at the old school, which no one told them about – he came home two days in a row telling them ‘die skool het my gefoeter’. jissie!) so now little M thinks its christmas.
he loves playing outside, in the sand or mud or water or anything that isnt the house! and now at school they have a lot of outside play, which i am very grateful for! i know they have to have ‘school’ but he just blossoms when he is outside, touching everything and putting everything in his mouth. he can sit in the sand and rub his hand over it for long, moving the sand about till it suites him.
and thats what i can think of now
we are moving house end of the month, and i am SO not lus! i just want to go live in the new house, not do the moving thing. but ja, it must be done. ai. hubby is busy fixing up the house now while we dont live there yet, and its going a bit slower than i hoped. but we dont really have money now, so its understandable.
haha, i think i gave him a heartattack earlier today! phoned him and told him i want another baby lol i was holding a little boy, eight days old and 3kgs, and it felt SO good! on the one hand. on the other, i was gone already for about ten minutes and my hands were still shaking – he is SO tiny! it felt strange, though, to think that nine months ago our little one was also so small – newborn clothes hanging like bags, newborn diapers that needed to be folded over to fit, those tiny little tiny hands clutching at everything. ag, it was nice. but i wont trade our little M for him
anyways, i hope you all have a good time ahead – will (hopefully, no promises!) talk to you soon!!
