our first sleepless night

last night we had the worst sleep ever. roo, from birth, has only ever woken up three times at the most. usually, he only wakes up twice for a feed and goes back to sleep straightaway. last night was different. we went to bed around 10:30. roo woke up at 11 for a feed. then he woke up at 1, then 3, then 4:30 and again at 5. from 5 we got to sleep til 8, which was lovely.

luckily, in those feeds he wasn't too upset and flashed a few smiles my way in the wee hours. it's hard to be cranky about no sleep when you've got a face like that giving you big smiles and chats.

to reward us for his bad night, he did sleep one whole hour in his own bed this morning, which is a big deal over here.

i'll leave you with these cute photos for today. who doesn't love a fat baby face in a cute hat.

the hats and booties are made by beautiful nell. check more out here.

p.s. roo isn't this fat in real life. photos make his cheeks extra chubby :)


  1. Oh he's absolutely gorgeous! I can't wait to meet him xx

  2. Growth spurt! Those nights are killers, but seriously how cute are those cheeks! Like I always say to my little guy "it's lucky you're cute!" :-)

  3. He is eatable Kesh, just eatable x

  4. I was just thinking the same thing - growth spurt coming on! Making sure you have plenty of milk for him, how clever ;)

    I think Jude had a growth spurt for his first year. Constantly. Every. night. was. like. this. How am I even alive? Teehee. I'm probably exaggerating. Might wait a fair bit longer for a baby half-sister or brother for my little darling boy though!

    He is adorable! I love his little hat collection!


  5. He is gorgeous, Kesh. Love his squishy cheeks and his little froggy legs :)

  6. Oh Roo, you are the sweetest model. Rockin' the hats and booties like a superstar. What beautiful pictures.

    Those kind of nights can be killer (although, like you say, it's hard to be grumpy when they flash you a smile)! We've had a few like that the last couple of weeks, with teeth trying to break through and still not making it. Make sure you catch up in some sleep while he's napping today Kesh, but fingers crossed it's a one off. If it is a growth spurt, we often find a bad night can be followed by a fab one so here's hoping xxx

    ps. go Roo, sleeping in your own bed. We get how good that is round these parts. It took A LOT of effort from all three of us to get Phiney to do that was she was teeny :) xx

  7. Yup, sounds like a growth spurt! We're having one here too... nothing like waking up every three hours to feel like you have a newborn again. Except the newborn is now a 6kg baby. At least they are cute! Those sweet smiles almost make up for everything :)

    Love his little hat and booties! The pom-pom toes are so cute.

  8. Nah, I don't believe it! After seeing how blissfully content he was sleeping the day away last Saturday... Gorgeous kiddo, and lovely mumma too. Wishing you a big sleep tonight x

  9. These baby photos are wonderful! He is very cute and PS: He doesn't look fat in the pictures at all. Love the little knitted shoes.

  10. So beautiful photos!!!!!! and the hat and socks are lovely. I remember the no sleeping...ufffff

  11. Seriously, he's cute as! Love these photos :)

  12. Beautiful little man!

    Could also be cabbage causing restlessness, I noted your previous post you had coleslaw BIG wind maker :(
    Onion garlic and beans are also responsible for wind

    Have a happy day and enjoy your little man

  13. Beautiful boy ...... Hope the sleepless nights aren't often xx

  14. Oh my, what a scrumptious little guy. Those nights are the worst {my little one was BAD with sleep, 3 wake ups would have been a blissful night} but sleep deprivation is painful no matter what the dose.
    May you catch up on some soon. Or at least have that beautiful face staring up at you to ease the pain;)

  15. Yesterday, while I was at work, my cousin stole my iphone and tested to see if it can survive a twenty five
    foot drop, just so she can be a youtube sensation.
    My iPad is now destroyed and she has 83 views. I know this is entirely off topic but I had to share it with someone!
